Household Update

"Just the facts m'am."

Sometimes I use too many words to get simple points across. And other times, I get lost in those words and fail to express critical points. So, as an exercise in conciseness and to keep you in the loop with our goings on, here is the Butler household update:

Randy is acclimating to his job very well, satisfied with the variation, hopeful for the future and loving the perks of a government post.

I am busy with piano lessons, housewife duties, and various extra curricular activities. Most importantly in my personal life, I have gained much ground in eliminating fear from my heart.

Lizzie & Grace got out a few weeks ago and evidently took a stroll around the neighborhood, but came back. Our neighbor reported them racing around but not bothering anyone. Overall, they are embracing adulthood with ease and exuberance.

A few goals we have for the next few months:
I'm working on losing some more weight before facing parenthood. 7 1/2 pounds so far!
We are looking to buy a car, probably in February. I believe we've decided on an older CR-V so we can cart dogs as well as future children around.
Fix the dishwasher - I've been a successful dishwasher for the past few months and its really not that bad but I wouldn't mind a little extra time.

Growth is the worth the effort. Never let society, laziness or discomfort to convince you to give up on it. We are capable of so much more than we usually think!
