Where Logic Meets Love

A Quick Update on Life

Pin It Now!
I was able to successfully start putting my family's home videos on DVDs, and I am SO excited about it. I have the first six years done so far, for a total of 9 DVDs. I go over to my parents' house every Sunday to work on them while Mike is at work. My sister sits and watches me sometimes, and my mom and even occasionally my dad will sit with me and figure out who people are (I make labels pop up briefly on the screen) and where we were and what certain events were called. It's probably my favorite day of the week. My sister keeps asking if she's been born yet, but the rate of one year's movies a week, she probably won't be born until sometime after Christmas :)

Life is good. Marriage is good. Mike is his usual self, which is one part infuriating to about nine parts patient, loving, and thoughtful. I fully expect him to remain so throughout the rest of our lives. We are currently planning out the house we want to build for ourselves in about 10 years. How that will fit in with having kids, his career, etc. My parents still appear not to grasp the concept of my being the primary breadwinner. Oh, and speaking of my career, with all the layoffs happening in publishing, I've pretty much decided that ideally I would like to stay in higher education and do as much freelance editing as I can. I think that would be a good balance for me.

My sister's spending the night here tonight, so I need to get things picked up a bit and run some errands. I like having a normal, routine life.
