There have been many times where I've posted on other blogs begging for updates, worried if they were doing well, what major travesty or hilarity may have happened? And for the first time I've found myself on the other side of the yard. Well, let me just say that the family and I have been the little Christmas capitalists we are, staying late at work, looking at houses, and visiting relatives nearby. I'm happy to report that we are all A/Ok.
Here's a briefing on the past few weeks:
Daniel Craig was excellent as the new James Bond and the opening sequence (the one before the credits) was one of the best 007 scenes in the history of Bond! Ian is rolling like a madman, but can't quite figure out how to crawl yet. A new business client at work chose my design over another making me the lead Art Director on the project. Lyndsey will be teaching Biology in the spring, which is about 4 weeks away. Lastly, we have found a rockin' floorplan that matches just about everything Lyndsey and I have been looking for over the past 3 years....so we purchased a corner lot to start building a house! We were the second people in line to get a lot in a new phase of the neighborhood that was opening up. Unfortunately, we weren't given white flags to run out onto the grounds and claim our land like Tom Cruise in "Far and Away." Man, that would have been fun. It's the craziest, most exciting decision we've ever made together. It's about 12 minutes from where Lyndsey will teach, and 2 minutes from a TRE station where I'll continue to commute into Dallas.
So, that's the long and short of it. The next thing I have to do is upload all the pictures on my camera and post some newbies of Ian, the lot, and Ian's encounter with 'ol Saint Nick. I guess I'll see you in 3 weeks.
