Time flies!

You know the saying, "Time flies when you're having fun?"  Well, it also flies when you are busy, life is chaotic and hectic and really the only time it doesn't "fly" is when it is 4pm on a Friday afternoon--Right?  

In a nutshell, this is what has been going on with us.


July --Beyond the Ashes (the group Sweet Hubby sings lead for) sang 20+ shows!  (that is a lot) Sweet Hubby and I both got really sick.  I am still battling the cough.  My wonderful sister and her 3 children came to visit us for 5 days.  Babbling Brook took her first unassisted step July 10.  (Sweet Hubby was not here to witness it but did get to hear me shriek in the phone when it happened.)  I had a birthday and am officially 29 and holding.  My sister had a birthday is officially not telling anyone her age.  I had a spiritual breakdown on a Wednesday night --asked for prayer and by Monday was FREED.  Praise God!!  We contacted a wonderful mortgage lender and within 24 hours she had us pre-approved for a home!  She then directed us to a realtor, who within a few hours, had us 40 homes to look at.  (that will make your head spin)

August -- Looked at 6 homes, loved 2.  Sweet Hubby has been home 1.5 days in the last 2 weeks.  We are ready for him to be home!  Babbling Brook hasn't crawled in 5 days and is now trying to RUN.  It was billing week and a full moon last week for me at work = hectic.  Babbling Brook is also starting to show her independent side.  Our neighbors gave her a rocking chair and she does not want help getting in or out of it.  If you make a move towards her she will wave her hand/arm and say, "No, don't."  And so it begins.  

So, like the rest of you, we have been busy.  I promise I will try to keep up with this better.  

And Jaxson?  He has been asleep through it all.  He truly has the life.
