We've made a couple of decisions in the past two weeks that have made me feel good, like real adults or something! :) I planned to go with Jamie and some friends on a work trip with him to Indianapolis....I know we would have had a blast. We always, always have a great time with the friends we were going to go with and we both love to explore new cities. But, the flight would have been $300, plus food and whatever else we ended up doing (and we aren't exactly the type of people that spare expenses on trips). Jamie and I have been blessed with lots of great quality time lately--including a great anniversary trip in July to the Red Wing/Maiden Rock, WI area and a wonderful week in California celebrating our good friends' wedding. So, I decided not to go. The money will be put to good use for our adoption and I'll be able to concentrate on Griffin. I was torn for a while about what to do, but am so glad I decided to stay home. We're planning a fun, local get together with our friends soon!
The next one was on Jamie. He had a fish house made the year we built our home. It's been fun for him to have, but it's one more thing to deal with....you know how that goes. Something to get a permit for, pull on and off the ice, maintain, blah, blah, blah. And, he has a portable fish house, too. So, he posted the fish house for sale, and it sold! The gentleman that bought it will be happily using it on a nearby lake. And, we'll happily add the money to our adoption fund. (And, no worries, I am certain that in a few years down the road we'll have a spiffier fish house!)
