Wednesday Rambling...

Today is kind of a blah day. I've been pretty lazy and not doing too much besides laundry and working on my coupons. Jason had to go to a meeting this morning at work and I wanted to get up and go, but I was just too tired to get up at 5. He's napping now so I guess he really was too. He was kind enough to bring me home coffee and breakfast from Starbucks, so that was a very nice surprise. We are going to go out to dinner together tonight. We have been struggling trying to find things to do together and figuring out what our lives should be now, but we are working on it....

Yesterday was a day filled with mixed emotions. I could have stayed in bed all day. Jason finally managed to get me up and we went to the Houston Zoo. I cried on the way there and a few times while we were walking around. It was the first place I wanted to take Eli when he got out of the hospital so I was sad to go there without him. It wasn't very crowded, but it seemed like everyone who was there had kids and strollers with them. I was upset to see so many kids running around looking at the animals while their parents lagged behind talking on their cell phones. What a wasted opportunity.... A new giraffe was the highlight of the trip; he was born on Friday and was just 4 days old. What a treat to get to see that!

We went to our friends to visit and have dinner after the zoo and it was such a nice evening. I love hanging out with other couples and don't do it nearly enough. They have two beautiful children and it was so great to be surrounded by all the love in their home. They are some of the most caring people I know so it is such a blessing to be able to call them our friends. We watched the movie Fireproof while we were there and I'm still thinking and processing it, so I'm sure I'll have a blog post on it soon.
