House This House That

I feel like our whole life is revolving around the house. It’s mostly what we talk about, all our decisions now are based on the house, it’s all other people want to talk about with us. We feel very blessed to be where we are, and we’ve waited a long time to be here, so I don’t feel bad wanting to celebrate this step. We’re 28 years old, we have 8 years of marriage behind us, and Geoff finally has a permanent job. We’ve paid our dues, now we get to pay a mortgage. 🙂

I feel just ill when I think about the devastation in New Orleans. I feel such sorrow for those who lost loved ones, all their possessions, and for a city that will never be the same. I pray these people can rebuild new lives, and I pray that we can stop blaming others and just try to move on. I understand the hurt though, and I understand that like a death in the family, everyone will respond to it in their own way.

This week (this whole month) I got a lot going on. Tuesday morning is Elijah’s 6 month check up, and a trip to the bank. Wednesday afternoon is the house inspection, which I think may be fun. Thursday is Mom To Mom. Somewhere in there, I’m still hoping to pack.

Well, that’s about it. I’m going to close with a quote from Contact.

Michael Kitz: Your having sent this announcement all over the world may well constitute a breach of national security.
Ellie Arroway: This isn’t a person-to-person call. You can’t possibly think that a civilization sending this kind of message would intend it just for Americans.
Michael Kitz: I’m saying you might have consulted us; obviously, the contents of this message could be extremely sensitive.
Ellie Arroway: You want to classify prime numbers?
