Life is Good!

Hi all!  Just a quick update.  Summer has gotten quite busy with the kids and, and, and.  So I haven't had a chance to blog.  But William and I are good. Good enough that we are putting ourselves to the test.  Prior to my discovery, we had started a process to do something.  Something big. Something that will cause some changes in our life, but will also likely bring a certain level of stress with it.  After all, even good things can be stressful.  Anyway, this spring, we had sort of a "now or never" decision to make - so after much (MUCH!) discussion, we elected "now."  So it's started...  It's a good thing.   

This week was a big week in that process, probably the biggest one that we'll have, truthfully.  I've been a bit worried how this would affect William, me, us, our marriage, everything.  Well, maybe not really worried, per se, after all, we talked about this a LOT before we proceeded.  But perhaps...aware?  We are really trying to focus on "us", on our stress level, and on reducing that stress level while we go through this.  William wanted to do a "big" dress this week - out of cycle.  Which means he is under more stress.  At first, I was a little upset (at myself for continuing on with this project), but then I thought about it more.  Actually, his request was a good thing.  It means that we are identifying our stressors and working hard to relieve them.  Working together.  Talking together.  Talking things out.

And we're good.  :)
