So I have all sorts of unfinished posts for this blog that I just can't seem to finish. My main excuse is that we haven't had the internet in our apartment for the last couple of weeks. But I'm here at my dad's so I'm going to try to make the most of it.
A quick update on our everyday lives:
Dave got staffed here in Dallas, which was actually a pretty huge shock to us. His firm only has one local case so we had made all our plans thinking that he'd be traveling all week. While it was an extremely pleasant surprise to find out that he would be here, we have had to make a few adjustments. One of the biggest being our car situation: we bought a car in March before we moved down here thinking that we wouldn't need two since Dave is gone all week. Had we known that we would need two we probably wouldn't have bought our Subaru...a bit out of our price range for two cars. Not to mention it has left me pretty stranded for the time being. So we're still working out a few little things like that.
But Dave is working very hard. Too hard really. For example, he had to work on Sunday, then he had to be IN the office the next morning at 6 AM, then he didnt' get home until after 10:00 pm, then of course he still had some work to do so he got up before 6 AM again this morning to finish it and I still haven't seen him today (and it's after 9:30). And the most amazing part is that I haven't heard one word of complaint from him. How did I get so lucky??
And while Dave is off working 70 hour weeks I keep myself super busy with strenous tasks such as early morning biking, copious amounts of reading, deep cleaning (cause it's tough to keep our apartment clean when I'm the only one that even really lives there!), running errands (which has actually been quite a bit more difficult now that I don't have a car), practicing my violin (it's extremely painful to listen to myself after all these years), and searching for a job that won't take too much time out of my busy schedule.
So this is what real life is like...
