High Five for Friday!

It's Friday again! These weeks are all running together. Most days I don't even know what the date is. It feels strange to not be living day by day, hour by hour from my planner. It's also really freeing to just love on my babies, pray for new news, and cook dinner.

Here were this week's highlights:

1. After not hearing about anything on the job front in nearly 3 weeks we got 2 phone calls this week. It's really nice to be kept in the loop and know that progress is being made! Also I registered on care.com to take on some tutoring jobs. Excited about all that!

2. I really think Emberly is teething. I didn't know 3 month olds could teethe, but she is showing the signs. That combined with waking up every 1.5-2 hours makes perfect sense. Seriously don't know what I would do if I had a full time job. Be a zombie? My night owlish tendencies are not being used to my advantage. I'm not even tired until 1am- but come 7:30am? I can't even see straight. I used to be at work at 7:30am!
**I posted this post last night and she slept for 12 hours straight! No peeps! I frantically got up at 5:30 thinking something was wrong :)

3. We are tossing around the idea of buying another house. This is in the REALLY EARLY planning stages- obviously- Josh doesn't have a job yet. But we are trying to get our ducks in a row for when he does. A mortgage would be $150-300 less than apartment rent (we're talking an extra bedroom and about 1,000 more square feet). Just that fact alone put the fire under us. Not even sure we would qualify for a loan (since we already have a mortgage in Toccoa), but we have been driving around checking out neighborhoods. It doesn't hurt to be educated! Is it bad that Josh and I compete for the higher credit score and we get giddy excited to check our report? He beat me by 5 points- womp. We are seriously nerdy.

4. Luke attended AWANA and memorized his Bible verse. Oh my that boy is smart. He seriously needs to be challenged.

5. I mentioned this on Facebook- I got an unexpected paycheck this month! Since teachers are paid on a year round schedule, it was my last paycheck from last year. They told me I would have pay through the end of August and health insurance through the end of September. I thought pay through the end of August meant a July pay check that would last us through August. It actually meant an August paycheck that would last through September! Although I'm not worried about finances because of how we planned our savings, it's always nice to get an unexpected blessing. That combined with the generosity of my parents letting us crash their place, and great renters in our Toccoa house- I'm feeling pretty darn blessed. And it feels great to be saving $!

This was a good week! Looking forward to a nice weekend and a little relaxation maybe?
