Do you ever wish you could find a way to keep your eyes from blinking so you don’t miss the life that’s passing by? Every day seems to be a realization that I’m progressing forward at such a rapid rate and I’m not really sure how I feel about it sometimes. While I’m so excited that Buddy is moving on to toddlerhood, I’m just blown away by where Noah and I are in life. We are married, he has a very successful/stable career, we are home owners, we talk about health/life/home/car insurance regularly, I’m a stay at home mom, I ENJOY grocery shopping, we are working on home improvements, we attend church services and functions regularly and we don’t go out partying much anymore. While I no longer know who we are since we evolved so rapidly, I’m growing more fond of us every day.
I love me, us, our family and the thought of us being ‘The Marners’. While the time to get to this point was not exactly smooth sailing, it built a lot of character in us and that’s what you have to take those kinds of times for. I can’t get over how pumped I am about painting this weekend. Um, what?! I will inform you, this is my first time ever painting. Noah and I never painted anything (except for the bar I cleaned up) and from what I’ve heard, this is definitely either a marriage builder or breaker. We’ve had a lot of character building in the past year so eh, what can a little painting do?
If someone who reads this figures out the ‘keeping the eyes open’ thing, I’m really interested. Particularly DIY-style as I’m mega cheap. Again, I’m looking for any of your tips in regards to painting walls, painting trim, painting cabinets, applying mosaic back splash and putting up pre-treated wood fences. I will always be a DIY-er so the more the tips apply that way, the more excited I’m going to be!
