"Christmas is a time when you get homesick - even when you're home"

It has been a very busy week for us. Eric went to Texas to pick out our lot that we are planning to build our house on and got to pick the little stuff like colors, tile, carpet etc… Ethan and I stayed home because a flight out there being pregnant and with Ethan was not worth it to look at several dirt lots. Therefore, Eric was chosen as the lucky contestant to do that while Ethan and I went through all of the designs and just told Daddy what we wanted. We are happy to get that started. Before Eric left, I mention to him to take our insurance for the rental car in case anything happens. Well, he calls me stating that someone hit him from behind, the driver appears drunk and a cop witnessed it all. He tells me he is fine, it was just a fender bender and he needs our policy # because he forgot to grab the insurance. Eric and I are so used to this kind of luck and can’t believe we get stuck in those kind of situations. He says I jinxed him. Thankfully, no one was hurt and the rental car place just needed it to be documented.

As soon as Eric got back, we got started on the Christmas decorations. At first, Eric and I kept trying to convince each other that we really didn’t need to put up a tree. Our Christmas spirits are a bit dampened because we are not going to be able to see family this Christmas. Eric will be too busy trying to finish his thesis. However, the sight of seeing Ethan on Christmas morning without a tree made us sad. Lazy Scrooges!

He is taking the job serious. He better because next year someone else may want to put the star on.
