In the Middle of our Street

Anna came home last week and is adjusting really well. She was only in the NICU for 3 weeks, Little Miss Champ! Her adjusted age is still little less than a month old, so they are not looking for typical newborn signs – eye contact, head rolling, etc. It’s amazing what the human body can do. We certainly have an amazing Creator.

Kelly is still on dialysis until they find a donor for her kidney transplant. Not sure when this will be, but until then, she’s on dialysis 3 days a week. She passes the time well through her blog: Kidney Mom Dialysis.

Two weeks ago we took our vacation and decided to rent a car (Go, Go, Kia Spectra!) and drive to the east coast to visit Steven’s family. We attended a wedding in Troy, OH, of one of Steven’s friends from high school, stayed at his dad’s house and left the following morning for a week of driving from house to house. It was the first time I had met any of his mom’s side of the family, and it was a tender, emotional and happy trip. See previous post for trip highlights, “My Hurricane’s Name is Earl.”

Two more exciting announcements:

1) We listed our house. For real. I’m nervous, scared and trembling with excitement all at the same time. We figure it won’t hurt anything to just test the waters a little. And, really, we’re never going to even think about taking out a second mortgage, so we’d have to have an offer on our house before we could even put an offer on a foreclosed property. This could take a while on both sides of the spectrum. We’ll see what happens.

2) We are the official winners of the Scotty’s Brewhouse (restaurant in Indy) video contest: paper football. Steven’s brilliant mind of making a “choose your own adventure” video game raced us to the top! Here’s the winning entry. You’ll have to watch on a non-mobile device because the annotations apparently don’t work on phones. Click one our heads to get started:

[…] like a distant reality. We tried selling our house before and then thought about listing it again a few years later. It was never the right time. The time is […]
