There are so many good things in life right now . . . .
* Monty got a promotion a work! He is now a Senior Programmer Analyst. He knew the promotion may be coming sometime soon but was surprised when his boss called him in the office on Monday to give him the good news. He has been working really hard on some big new projects, so he really deserves this. I am so proud of him!
* Due to all the snow and ice I have not had to go to work for two days. How nice to relax and enjoy sleeping in a little and getting some housework done. We will be out Thursday too. This has been a bad ice storm but thankfully we only lost power for about 1 1/2 hours. That was last night from about 10:00-11:30 so we were in bed and it didn't really matter! Monty has taken some great pics and you can see them on our Flickr page.
* As of tomorrow I am 27 weeks pregnant and everything is going great! Only one more week of the second trimester left. We have our nursery finished (for the most part) and have had lots of fun buying clothes and picking out stuff for our little guy. Thank goodness for the Associate Store where we have been able to buy large quantities of diapers and wipes. I love that place!
* We have decided our big home improvement project this year will be to put new siding and gutters on the house. The old siding in the back is beginning to rot, but after all, it is a composite wood and it's 16 years old. The new siding will also increase the selling value of our house. Not that we plan to sell soon, but we will in the next few years. I think it's funny that I now get so excited about buying things like appliances, furniture, and things for the house. I guess that's because I know purchases like that are an investment in our future.
