A timeline update

I sat down to examine our finances about two weeks ago, and as I started considering where our savings accounts are at now, how much we’re putting away monthly, and how much we will be able to put away in the future, I started wondering whether August makes the most sense for us to start at SEBTS.

The short answer, on financial terms alone, is no. Read on, intrepid explorer →

Miscellanies in March

I’ve been posting much less these past few weeks. Not a surprise; life gets busy, and I’ve been pretty tired.

So has Jaimie; she saw the doctor for a pregnancy test, got some bloodwork done, and found out she’s anemic from the pregnancy.

Combine that with an offhand comment by a coworker, and some pieces of my life snapped together. For a decade or so, I’ve had an incredibly hard time staying awake when I’m bored. It started in 8th grade, and has continued ever since. Boring class? Sleep. Boring sermon? Sleep. Boring workday? Struggling not to fall asleep. I was notably anemic back when I had mono – common enough, but possibly still true. Read on, intrepid explorer →

Challenges, blessings, and transitions

If I haven’t written much this week on most of my blogs, well, it’s because I’ve been pretty busy.

It is one of the coolest, strangest, most awesome, most mind-boggling things I have ever felt. There is a little person in there, growing – now big enough that when she moves and pushes or kicks against the womb, I can feel it. Read on, intrepid explorer →

Okay, truth be told? I don’t think this 13 mile run is going to be fun, what with 50-mph winds…

Jaimie thinks she might have felt our little girl kick for the first time last night! Exceptionally exciting! (I still find it extraordinary that there is a small person growing in there.)

This one takes the cake

They say pregnancy affects the brain. It’s true. I have strong evidentiary backing for this claim – all of it hilarious. A few weeks into Jaimie’s pregnancy, I began noticing the side effects – enough so that at one point I sat down with her and said (humorously, but a with a hint of pleading underneath), “My love, please try to keep thinking through the pregnancy.” It’s been our running joke ever since, and we’ve had our share of funny moments since then – but this one takes the cake.
