My sweet husband has worked and worked to figure out whythe new modem and new ethernet card won't work. Our computer recognizes that they're in place, but won't connect to the net. If you've heard the cries of frustration, it was Shane.
Meanwhile, I've been able to get a lot done. Here's a little summary:
*I've eaten about a dozen hamburgers in the last 1.5 weeks...I've never craved hamburgers (not the McDonald's kind-the real, thick meat kind) before, but hey, it's better than soap, right Summer?
*Shane joined a gym and has lost 8 lbs.
*I've not had sugar in 3 weeks today.
*We started a new small group with new friends from church.
*Softball ended (whew, just in time, not sure I could do one more game in this heat!). Hope's team won 1st place!
*Shane and I talked about moving to New Zealand (seriously-and from a man who doesn't even fly).
*We looked at a house 30 miles away...but not as seriously as we've talked about moving Down Under.
*Oh, and Shane informed me he'd like to raise bats once we move to the land...not sure about that one.
*We've made some career/financial decisions that should result in more time at home and paying down/off a credit card very soon.
*We're seriously planning our move to our land-I started the loan application process today! If you work in law enforcement or education and live in the Lone Star State, check out this grant program for Texas Heroes. Edit: Only check into this if you're patient. Turns out they've not funded it for 2008...
*I've watched 3 movies (Amazing Grace, The Ultimate Gift, and Bucket List-first two were good, skip the last one), finished a book and restarted a sewing project. I've also decluttered the living room including books & toys. 2 BIG decluttering projects are in the wings...
However, of all the things we've accomplished there's one that's still undone...finding a name for this baby girl! Everyone but Shane calls her Audrey, and Beth even calls her Audrey Braiden (after a boy in her SS class) yet Daddy won't give it...yet.
Hope to be back full time soon-miss you all!
