With so much sad in the world, I thought it would be a nice change to have happy, at least in one little corner of the internet.
I have two to start us off. I live with my father-in-law, in a separate apartment downstairs. We are close enough that we can help take care of him and have meals together and whatnot, but we still have our own spaces and can each have individual homes. Up to now, we have had to take our laundry to his part of the house, and impose on him. We just got a fancy new high efficiency washer and dryer for the downstairs, so I can do laundry whenever and not feel like I am being a bother. Also, no more hauling laundry up and down the stairs! Win!
The second, and more exciting, is that my sister-in-law found out that she is pregnant! She has a 5-year-old, almost 6 by the time the baby comes. We are all super excited. She has wanted a second child, hopefully a girl, for a very long time. She had her first appointment today, and everything looks great!!!
