Sometimes I feel like a broken record. Each podcast episode starts with "I'm really excited about this week's episode." and most of my around here posts start with "thank you so much for your sweet comments this week." (Not to mention what I continually say around the house..."what do you want for dinner?" "feel like another episode of [insert Scandal, Friends, Parks & Rec here]?" "nope we don't eat that, Ellerie.")
But I am really excited about each episode and I do really appreciate your comments. Thank you.
Big things this week :
Ellerie started daycare! Two full days, out of the house. I imagine I will have more to say about this as time goes on, but right now the important thing is : she loves it. Like loves it. Loves her teachers, loves her little friends, loves the toys & loves that everything is designed to be climbed on. I cried at drop-off but she did not and when I picked her up after the first day her teacher said "She is so ready for daycare." and my mama heart burst in the best way. I can't even believe what a better human being I was these past few days after I had some extra time for myself, the house and my work. We are all happy that the first week went well.
We learned about the real options we will have after Paul finishes residency (in summer 2017). They are different than expected (no super fabulous overseas billets, no staying put in San Diego) but I think we have a plan that we are excited about. I was getting all worked up about it and then realized we have almost three more years here. And I laughed like a maniac. Three years? Generally we move twice in three years. How foolish of me to start over-planning.
We have so much more to do here before we think about what's next. I mean that literally, but it works figuratively as well.
Have a great weekend.
