I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately. I think the biggest reason for the whirlwind in my head is that both my kids are growing so fast. Though they are almost seven years apart in age they’re both hitting big milestones this summer. My oldest is graduating high school and my youngest is moving on to middle school.
No question my world revolves around them, as it should, but our household has been in very blah routine. Don’t get me wrong, it’s worked well for us. The kiddos are both doing well and they’re the best kids ever. They are my everything.
But at this point in their and my life, there’s no reason we have to continue on the merely adequate and blah path we’ve been on. It’s time to shake things up.
No, we can’t do anything totally outlandish. The kids still need their stability but there are ways that we can make changes that might bring a breath of fresh air to our world.
We’ve already made one small change and after a week we couldn’t be happier. Even though the addition means work and increased responsibility, we’re having three times the smiles and laughter.
We found him through a local animal rescue. The only thing we know for certain is that his momma is a Beagle and suspect he has some Basset Hound in his makeup. And his little body seems a mile long so there maybe some dachshund in the mix also. We don’t know. We don’t care.
We’re in love. You never know what you’ll find if you shake up your world a bit.
Stay tuned because we’re not finished shaking yet.
