We've gotten really good at decompressing on the weekends. The mornings are for errands, and then we laze about the rest of the day. Movies and naps have become our specialties. Have you ever noticed that naps are more cozy on a couch than on a bed? I can't explain it. Throw in a mountain of pillows, a fleece blanket, a cuddly cat, and a rain storm, and you've got a perfect lazy Saturday.
The house was completely still as the sky fell outside and the others were sleeping. I marveled at the fact that May starts this week. Where has the year gone? We're coming up on two years in Houston which is the time at which we anticipated our departure. Per usual, life has other plans!
I feel like I'm in a season of change. My husband started a new job. My sister's baby is due within the next month. I have six weeks left of my first year of graduate school. I just renewed my vehicle registration for two years which makes staying in Houston very tangible. Those are all outward markers, but I feel like there's something inside me that is changing too. Turning a new leaf, as they say. We'll see what comes of it. I want to let it simply reveal new things rather than dissect it and possibly change its course. It feels good, so I'm going to keep truckin' along and let it unfold as it may.
How's that for some deep Monday thought?
In other news, I fell in love with a dress online only to find out it was a maternity dress. So there's that.
