A Weekend at the Mabrey's

It's the weekend at the Mabrey household. David is off today and tomorrow so I worked my work schedule to be off too. The weather has finally cleared up. Though it is not as warm as it was a week ago, it was nice to finally see the sun after four straight days of pouring rain. Hopefully the warm weather will return soon.

We had a day that started with no plans but of course we ended up running around town all day. We started with breakfast and a trip to the auto parts store. Last night while I was in class, David ran to Ingles to pick up a few items. He went in and left the lights on in his car. Of course, when he got back in the car it would not start. He walked home in the pouring rain with a gallon of milk. I felt so bad, but he refused to call me to come get him while I was in class. So we went for a new battery this morning.

This afternoon we decided to go check out the gym down the street. We had a gym membership while living in our previous county, fortunately we did not have to sign a contract and we were able to cancel when we moved. David has been talking about getting back into shape since its been a few months. Believe it or not, this hasn't been something on my mind lately. Of course, forty-five minutes later we walked out new members of the our local gym. I need to get back to walking since I can go longer than five minutes with out being sick, so I am excited about it. It will also be helpful after the baby is born. I told David that he has to get back in shape so it will motivate me to get back in shape for the 2010 bikini season. So, we'll see how it goes.

In other news, we have been debating for quite some time on what we want to do about our house situation. We have seriously gone back and forth on this for months now. One day we're dead set on buying a house and staying close to family. The next, we don't want to be stuck here and want to just keep renting. After many hours of discussing, we've decided we're ready to buy a house. Whatever happens with his job will happen. We're happy with our situation right now and content with it. In a perfect world he will get promoted somewhere near here where we would not have to move, but we don't live in a perfect world. He has been extremely lucky with the location of the first two positions he has had, but that is likely to not last. Right now is a great time to buy. Especially for first time home buyers. We're not planning on to really start looking till the end of Spring and hoping to move before August. There are some great opportunities the government is trying to pass that will be very beneficial to anyone buying a home, so we're hoping to wait it out a bit to see if they get passed. We have a close friend in real estate and he is recommending us to wait till summer.

So, keep us in your prayers as we add something else to our already busy summer. This evidently is going to be an exciting year for us. Tomorrow I go to see the specialist. I am scheduled to just have an ultrasound and then we'll go from there. I am sure everything will be fine. I'll post tomorrow to let you know how it goes.

SO EXCITING!!!!

I have been secretly sad about you guys moving away.

We don't hang out enough as it is so if you move it would be super sad! How would I shower baby Mabes with monogrammed gear???
