up in the air

We had a really good weekend. Underdog was surprisingly enjoyable, but I'm sure a lot of that enjoyment had to do with the fact that I got to hold my nephy the entire time. I haven't had him for 90 minutes in years. :o)

We've planned for my in laws to buy our house in about a year, when we got a church of our own, but due to events in their current neighborhood they might be buying it sooner. Like this week. My brother in law would have to change schools, and if he decides that he can handle that we'll be moving out. School starts on Thursday, so we'll know soon. I'm trying not to get too excited about it, but it would be awesome to live in an apartment again. For some reason we haven't really been able to function in this house. We knew it was a fixer upper when we bought it, but we had no idea that we were about to be called to the youth ministry and would no longer have tons of free time. So we fixed it up just enough that it was livable and now it feels like there is always something that we should be doing. Does that make sense? Every where we look there's a project so home doesn't feel like a safe haven after a long day. Plus, we're townies. We like to be able to run to church or to Wally World, or wherever at the drop of a hat. We don't live that far out now, but the difference is huge. So, fingers crossed. The school that Jess would go to is my alma mater, so I'm taking him to the open house tomorrow night. If he likes it then we're on. I saw today on his myspace page that he said he's probably changing schools, so maybe the chances are really good. I know I'm rambling, but you really don't know how awesome this would be for us. No huge yard, one less room to clean, the ability to have company.... it would be great.

So that's that. We're keepin it on the down low for now until we find out for sure, so ya'll are the first people I've told. Yay! :o)

On the WW front I wasn't too good this weekend. We had no groceries in the house, and I let it get a little out of hand. That's okay, I'll just reel it back in this week and try to make sure I get enough water. I haven't weighed myself, so I don't know the real damage, but I'm finally breaking my addiction to the scale. I'll WI on Thursday and hopefully it won't be a big gain.

I hope ya'll had a great weekend, too, and I hope you have a great OP day!

Glad to hear the movie wasn't too bad. I've steered the youngest away from it so far. Glad you had fun with your nephew too!
