I've been a little homesick lately- missing Waco and all the familiar people and places. Missing driving around with the windows down, the same familiar paths to work, church, friend's houses, and home. I'm glad we're having this adventure in Erie and experiencing life in a new place but sometimes it's bittersweet. Adam and I will always hold Waco dear in our hearts.. our first married home.
Monday, my husband will be 25. That's a quarter of a century! 25 feels like the most note-worthy birthday since 21. Isn't this the car rental year? Adam is definitely a homebody. Note- when I was trying to type "homebody", I kept accidentally typing "homeboy." I think God's trying to tell us something- like Adam is such a cool homeboy, dudes. Duh. Anywhoos, homebody- (Incidentally, should there be a space between 'home' and 'body'?) Moving forward- When we were engaged, I threw this big party for him- people came, we had cake, he busted a pinata. It was fun. Actually, the cake was in the shape of a jeep which made it super cool (By the way, if you live in Waco and ever need a great cake, try Gwyndene)
The next year, though, when I asked if he wanted a repeat, he declined. We had a nice supper, instead, with our soon to be Erie pals (Brooke & Free). Adam's definitely enjoys the smaller celebrations more than the larger ones. This year, my parents are coming on the 29th for Dad's leap year birthday and Adam's quarter century birthday. I cannot wait to celebrate with the family in town and teach them the wonders of snow boots and monstersicles.
Adam's been studying his pants off. Not literally, that'd be embarassing, but figuratively, yes. Lately, he's had a test at least every week and they're always on Mondays and, frankly, I'm getting sick of those stinking tests stealing my husband away! Grr, tests. Back off. At least we still have our supper times where we sit at the dinner table and play chess like big nerds. (We are.)
