First Week Back

So glad it’s Friday! Our first week back at work was a little rough.

Isn’t that how it always is though? We basically had about 2 weeks off from most work responsibilities, which was great and allowed us to get all settled in, but man it was hard to get back in the routine of things.

Anyway, we made it and are really looking forward to the weekend.

Jon had a couple of long days at the beginning of the week, where he had to be up in Round Rock all day. About 95% of the time he works from home and when he does have to go in (a couple of times a month), he is usually able to plan the times around traffic. That is one of the reasons we decided to buy in the area we did. Unfortunately there are a few times (two of them this week!), were he had to be up north and drive home during peak rush hour. It took him about an hour to get home one night. :(

On top of that, we had to get some maintenance done on his car this week. The work cost about double what we were expecting. Not so fun, but thankfully doable with savings. We are hoping his car hangs on for a couple more years…

Other than that and forcing ourselves back into a routine, things have been going great. Aedan is loving having two parks that we can walk to on a daily basis. As an added bonus the weather has been gorgeous this week. Whenever I am home, the back door is wide open and we have played outside as much as possible.


Tonight,  we are having date night in and watching the newest Harry Potter movie thanks to Redbox. I’m not the biggest Harry Potter fan, but I did read all the books and since I have seen all the other moves, I feel like I need to complete the series. Can’t believe the first one came out when I was in high school!

Tomorrow, we are celebrating Jon’s grandfather’s birthday with a family lunch and then we are hoping to have a relaxing weekend around the house.


Hope everyone has a great weekend!
