We haven’t been doing a lot around here lately. We’re doing our best to get sick and stay sick. 🙁 Ellie is even fighting her first cold! She has a nasty sounding cough, so I hope it’s not croup. The rest of us (including Sam) don’t sound croupy, so I hope it’s just normal drainage. But, we are definitely a goop factory around here. Everyone is ooey goey.
Some good news though: we got a contract on our house last week! It’s contingent on the sale of the buyer’s house (and she has a contract contingent on the sale of her buyer’s house). So, I’m not holding my breath for a closing date, but we’re moving in the right direction. We lost the contract on the house that we wanted to buy. However, to make a long story short, it’s now back on the market again. It’s still my favorite house, but we are currently looking into others to see what else is on the market. Brian found one that he likes better. My gut says No on that one.
We are becoming a coffee drinking household. Brian started drinking coffee a while back in order to cut out sugary sodas. He still drinks a soda about half the time. After my maternity leave, I started drinking caffeine because Ellie was not sleeping through the night yet. I really try not to drink it because it’s so horrible for you. At any rate, I got started on Diet Dr. Pepper, but now drink coffee at home on the weekends. Ellie is still not sleeping through the night, but I’d sure love to cut my caffeine habit. I had a headache by 8:55AM one morning because I hadn’t had my drink yet. Too much dependence for me!!!
I finally got a ticket out to Denver! I’ve been watching ticket prices for a year now. Whenever I find a good deal (which isn’t often) I can’t go for one reason or another (like Labor & Delivery!). However, a deal came up this past week and I decided enough was enough and I booked a flight for February. I’m excited. And nervous because Ellie will have to come with me. Merry Christmas to me! See you soon Lizzie and Guillaume!
