Last week, I told you how my husband surprised me and took our family out on the town for family night. He did a repeat this week 🙂 You all are going to think that we go out to eat all the time, but we really do not.

This trip was two-fold. My husband has needed a new lunch box for months but has not been able to find the right one.

Even though my blog is over a year old, I still consider myself a new blogger.

A few years ago, my husband and I felt led to start a blog. I did a little research on it and we prayed about it for a while. Several months later Blogelina ran an awesome deal that was just to good to turn down (knowing that the Lord had led us in this direction, we felt that this was confirmation).  So, we jumped on the offer and I began doing even more research.

So much research in fact that I almost did not pursue the blog (read about that here).

We were able to do a family night last night. My husband text me before getting home from work and asked if we would like to go out to eat. We don’t make a habit of eating out so this was a nice surprise.  A few minutes before I got the text I was sitting at the kitchen table getting school schedules figured out and was wondering what in the world we were going to have for supper and when I was going to make it to the grocery store. So, when I got his text, it was a relief. I knew that if we went out to eat we could also hit the grocery store.

January 14th, 2016 was a BIG day for me.

This day was the last day of a journey I started back in October of 2012. When I set out on this journey, it seemed overwhelming and, really, impossible that I would even see the end of it.

I am a researcher.  I can’t help it. When I find something interesting or there is some new project I think I would like to try, I research it.  It consumes my thoughts, any spare time I have, I spend on researching whatever it is I’m thinking of doing. In fact, I do so much research that I many times talk myself out of whatever it was I wanted to try. Like this blog.
