Weekly wrap up

I have a husband again! These past few weeks have given me just a taste of what it's like to be a single parent and sometimes it's not very fun. I know there will be plenty of other times where Daniel is gone or busy and unable to help out as much as I'd like, but the next few months shouldn't be too bad. I'm sure I'll have another reality check again come August, boo.

Poor Matthew has been sick this whole week! With Daniel gone at the beginning of the week, the single mom/sleep deprivation madness set in and I let my Googling get the best of me and I was certain my baby was going to stop breathing because he was so congested and unable to cough or sneeze anything out. I definitely checked on him way more than usual those nights! Luckily he's doing better, I think he'll be fine for when we fly home on Wednesday (!!!).

The program where you enter your rank list opened this week, Daniel and I have already had some tense discussions about where to put what programs. Our top 5 and last 3 are pretty solidified, it's those middle ones that are giving us a hard time. Luckily previous classes at MCW have been really good at matching in their top 5, so I'm not too worried. Daniel likes to joke about going in and switching things around at the last minute and I always say I'm going to change his password and not change it back until the list has been properly submitted. I might even do that anyway...

Something I love right now - Property Brothers
These days, Daniel and I constantly reminded about the impending changes we'll be facing in a few months. To try and escape the overwhelming-ness of it all, we've allowed ourselves to get sucked into the HGTV collection on Netflix. Property Brothers is our favorite; we love picking out elements in each episode that we'd like to incorporate into our future home (and which ones we can definitely leave out). We're also kind of learning about the process of home buying, which will be important in the next 18-ish months (rule 1: never skip the home inspection!). One of the benefits of settling down in the Carolinas is the connections my dad (he's a structural engineer) has with contractors, inspectors, architects, etc. I like to remind Daniel about that whenever I can :)
