Yikes! It's been awhile since Jenny and I have written. I guess life got in the way a little bit, and I think that happens sometimes. And if I'm being honest it's probably going to happen again this fall. I'm not quite sure how it happened, but I've committed myself to at least 4 out of town conferences or meetings and I'll probably be gone for some cases at least 3-4 times. And the husband is traveling a lot now too. On the bright side I might finally have enough segments for airline status! But in reality I'm overwhelmed by the thought of it all. At the end of the day it will all happen. We will take it one day at a time just like we always do. And in 83 days the husband and I will be on a plane headed to our very first kid-free vacation together in at least 3 and a half years. (But who's counting?) The thought of that trip keeps me going. It gives me something to think about when I just can't imagine staying up late to work ONE. MORE. NIGHT.
Jenny's fall looks to be just as chaotic with trials, arbitration, and preparing for baby #3 (yay!) so forgive us if (when) we are absent for a time. It's not that we don't care. It's just that we're working hard to manage our lives. To fit it all in. We're working hard to find our joy in the chaos.
