The other day Amy was over and the kids were playing. She asks me if we'll stay here for a while. This is not the first time she has quizzed me on how long we plan to live here.
Okay, I know that it was a complete and utter shock when we moved into her neighborhood and so quickly, but I think sometimes she still doesn't believe it can last. It has been good. We've been here four months and between the sharing of the meals, having a handy babysitter, and just being able to hang out, it has been fabulous! Not to mention that we both have our strengths and our weaknesses and amazingly enough, they are completely opposite. We're a lot alike, but I have found that where one of us is weak, the other helps to strengthen the other in that area. It's been lovely. She has really helped me to just start doing things and get projects worked on and finished.
Currently I'm working on decorating the girls' room as we await the arrival of their new bunk beds and Amy has helped me so much with decisions . . . I am not a decision girl. Nate knows if we ever go out that he will have to choose the restaurant - he's just learned to live with my indecisiveness.
ANYWAY, back to our conversation the other day. We got to thinking about how many times Nate and I have moved and the reality of the details was/is rather shocking.
In six years of marriage, we have lived in 5 different places -- 2 apartments and 3 houses.
I would say that we plan on staying in this house for a while because I hate moving and I'm having a lot of fun decorating and having my own home!
