That's a little bit how it feels at our house now. I naively thought with summer reading over and Matt heading back to school things would get easier. But, no. He's already got rehearsals and meetings keeping him out late. I'm already packing my fall schedule with events at the libraries - plus travel! There's places we have to go and people we have to see and only weekends to do it!
The bathroom has not progressed much. We hired a guy to fix the ceiling, so we're onto the tiling process, but I'm starting to have my doubts about our ability to accomplish that as well. We'll see - Matt decided to work on it this weekend, when there's time to think things through and do it right, instead of just doing dibs and dabs in the evenings.
While he's doing that, this weekend I'm going to enjoy a reunion with the girls I lived with my senior year in college. Last weekend, we enjoyed my cousin's wedding in Florida. Next weekend, who knows what crazy scheme we'll be pulling off - maybe a completed bathroom?
I have managed to finish a couple knitting projects that I keep meaning to take pictures of. I'll try to do that soon...
Ultimately, though, we've started to evaluate our schedules and we're seeing more and more that our current situation isn't really working. Driving 40 minutes to and from work isn't so bad, but it eats up a lot of time, especially when Matt has extra after-school obligations. I've started to dread getting in the car at the beginning or end of the day, even though I like my job. We love our church, but we can't be involved in all we want to do because of scheduling.
We're looking for solutions. Please pray for us as we consider our future.
