A simple post which encourages young parents with babies to utilize the help of the most qualified, most willing helpers in the world; grandparents.
Another birthday during another hot August. This month has flown by so quickly, but football season and cooler weather is now just around the corner. Around the house, I'm balancing chores with the long list of projects that I'd rather be working on. This is my journal for August of 2018.
The long wait is over. Aniela and I officially closed today on our new home in Pearland, Texas. And I’m now an official homeowner for the first time in my life. This move will make all the difference in the world to me and my family.
We finally found our home! Sometime in July, Aniela, Abram and I will be moving to Pearland on the south side of Houston, just a few minutes from where I work. We're so excited! Living there is going to free up 3 hours of my day, enabling me to proceed with a number of projects that have been on hold ever since I moved here from Florida. This is my journal for June of 2018.
Just a busy month of working, driving and looking for a place to live on the southeast side of Houston. We'd like to live close to where I work instead of across town, which is where we live now. This was my first full month at the new job and it's going well. This is my journal for May of 2018. This is my journal for April of 2018.
You read that right...we're moving to Houston...me, Aniela and Abram. It's not just a vague intention. I'm not saying that we'll eventually move to Houston. I'm saying that we're moving on April 6 so I can start a new job on April 9. It's all very sudden. The opportunity came out of nowhere on March 19th and we had to make some quick decisions as to whether or not I would accept it. But we really didn't need much time to think about it. It's a great opportunity. It fulfills my dormant hope of returning to Texas and we're super excited about it.
After a very unexpected job offer on March 22, we packed up all our stuff and moved from Florida to Houston on April 6th. It’s the big move I could only dream of because I never knew how to make it happen. Now it’s a reality. It sets the stage for a brand new chapter in life with my little family in Texas. This is my journal for April of 2018.
Ahh yes...I recognize that scent. It's very distinct. It's the smell of change. It doesn't come around often...but when it does, it's undeniable. Everything's about to get really interesting. This is my online journal for the month of March 2018.
