Over.

Over whelmed.
Over committed.
Over booked.
Over it.

If there are any of you ‘readers’ left out there, I imagine you’ve noticed that I {we} haven’t been posting much lately.
I’m sorry.
John’s gotten a new job. Which is awesome!
Especially since 2 weeks after he started we found out they’d laid off 70/90 people on his whole team {including his position, of course.}
But, it’s been a LOT more work. He’s been up at 6am everyday, & sometimes not done with work until 8pm. It’s been hard. Especially following a position that allowed us to be together a lot because it afforded us so much flexibility.
We thought this job was going to require us to move to Orlando. So we contacted our former Pastor in preparation to rejoin that church, we began looking for places to live in Orlando, we were preparing. Then we found out that it really will be better for us to stay here in Lakeland.
However, we’re anxious for a bit bigger space. {3 of us in a tiny duplex with nowhere to compost our food garbage, no space to have friends over for dinner, nowhere to put our bicycles, etc…} has made for some more grouchy times as of late {for ALL of us}.
SO, we found a house we LOVE.
We’re not people to LOVE inanimate objects frequently. But it just felt so homey to us immediately.
And it was $150/month more than we could afford. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
So we asked them if they could do less.

What’s Happenin’

John’s done with his traveling. Whew, thank God.
He’s home again! So glad.
However, he’s working the next several Saturdays. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Yesterday, Amelie ‘cut’ her first tooth.
I’ve felt it coming in for awhile – a bump under the gum.
Now? It’s sharp little white edges sticking up, chomping on my finger as she chews to relieve pain.

This is the 300th blog post on WeRoquemore.

This is the 100th day of Amelie365.
{Which, also means she’s been alive for 117 days = 3 months, 27 days.}

Tomorrow’s a big day.
A new journey of sorts, if you will.
Can you guess what it is?
I’ll give you a hint… I brushed my hair for the last time forย quite awhile.

Tomorrow, my Dad comes home from India.
I miss that man. He’s been busy traveling & I feel like I haven’t seen much of him.

This coming week, I have a goal to cook several new meals.
And to go on an adventure with flavors. I intend to attempt spices.
I’m generally into pretty bland foods. Poor John is probably pretty bored.
SO, I intend to make his favourite meal as well as venturing into a few other flavor-filled fun feasts.
{Say that 5 times fast.}

This past week, John & I {separately} decided to take seriously attempting to build deeper relationships in Lakeland.
{I’m especially intent on rebuilding one that’s fallen to the wayside since Amelie arrived.}
And we both {separately} reached out a couple of those people.
Funny enough, they were couples.
{Without talking much, he reached out to 2 husbands, and I’d reached out to their wives. Cool how that works, huh?}

Anyway, that’s what’s going on these days.
Thought I’d keep ya posted. ๐Ÿ˜‰
