Five on Friday

Well, it is finally Friday! We have had a really busy week so this week has actually flown by. It is always nice when that happens, although I wish the weekend could go by a little slower. So here goes my five on Friday!

One. I received a lot of love and encouragement from this post on Tuesday. I was really nervous to put my story out there, but I am so glad I did. I am tired of hiding behind the secrecy and I have taken to telling anyone who asks me when we want to have kids that we are currently trying. It has been really freeing and I am glad that I have started sharing my story.

Two. I finally finished up the last few things for our taxes and was able to send them off to our tax guy. He lives in Wisconsin, so we had to ship all our documents to him. Well, since we had to include our closing documents for the house so we had to send him a literal box full of paper work. Glad I can cross that one off my list. Now hopefully we will actually be able to file by the deadline.
Three. Richard and I have a busy next few months with travel it is kinda crazy. And we just added a new trip to Milwaukee! We have been wanting to visit there for a while now and we finally found a good deal on flights and booked a trip! Richard grew up in Milwaukee before moving to the Twin Cities in middle school so he wanted to go back and see his stomping grounds. Also, my cousin and his wife live there and they generously offered their house for us to stay. We are so excited to visit them and can't wait until then!

Four. I saw in my timehop app this week that we were celebrating our last week in Louisiana this time last year. I find it so crazy that it has already been a year since we said good bye to that place, yet living there is a distant memory. I still miss the people from there like crazy, but we love Texas and everything the big city has to offer. Also, it has been three and a half years since we left Minnesota. Now that is crazy talk.
Five. The Jeep decided to give me a mini heart attack this week. I was sitting in the parking lot at work on my phone because I was super early when all of a sudden smoke starts coming out from behind my steering wheel. I quickly shut off the car and popped the hood to see if there was anything smoking in the engine, which there wasn't. My husband then told me to go and take my car to the dealership to have it checked out. He also terrified me and warned me that my air bag might go off randomly so I should be careful. That is just what I wanted to hear. The dealership came back and told us the next day that there was some dark sticky liquid that must have spilled onto the wires behind the steering wheel and that the smoke was just the liquid burning off. Richard thought he had caught me and thought that I had spilled Dr. Pepper all over the steering wheel and did not tell him. I don't remember anything spilling on the steering wheel so it is a mystery to me. I am just grateful that it was basically nothing and that we did not have to shell out even more money to keep the Jeep working. That car is definitely on its last leg.

There you have it! This weekend should be a good one, even though it will be another weekend of dissertation writing. For Richard anyway. But we are getting closer to being done with that one so I suppose it is a good thing. Have I mentioned that I want to be done with that? Like yesterday. So close. Have a good weekend everyone!
