Day 2843 – A Long Overdue Date

It has been a crazy couple of months. Between moving, Bret building his real estate investing business, Bret working full time on top of that, me working for my clients, and just life in general, it has been so busy for us. We’re not fans of being this busy, but we’re big fans of the mindset of doing things others can’t imagine, so we can live a life people can only dream of. Oh how this has been looping in my brain. Since it’s been so crazy, Bret and I haven’t spent as much time together as we’d like. We even commented that we’ve been more like roommates. After a day of working on a number of things, Bret and I found some time to head into downtown Ellicott City for the spring fest. We were SHOCKED at how many people were there despite the rain. Shocked. If you’ve been to downtown Ellicott City, there were cars lining the road before you even got to the bridge. It’s amazing to see how strong the community is. I love that we live so close.

We ran into Pam Long of Pam Long Photography. She has been amazing at sharing live videos of all things Ellicott City since the flood. On days I can’t make it to openings of stores, I watch her live streams. Thank you for all you do Pam! She even took a pretty amazing picture of Bret and I! On her phone no less! You know someone is a great photographer when they can get photos like this from their phone.

We grabbed some spent grain pretzels with crab fondue and corn salsa from a new place in town, Manor Hill Tavern. They gave me a coupon for a free beer (you’re welcome Bret!) and I can’t wait to try more of their food!

The moral of the story is to date your spouse so they don’t become a roommate only!

Day 2839 – Poetry And The Creative Mind Day

Today is Poetry And The Creative Mind Day! In honor of that, here is a poem I wrote shortly after meeting Bret.

I fear dreaming
funny for me
yet you stay
with open arms
and at the
end of the day
my mind
goes not
to how
great we are
but how
amazingly great
and good
our Father is
in every joke
he laughs with us
every tear
caught in his hands
it feels different
it feels new
yet old as time
you keep me
on the glorious page
God has us on
I burst at the seams
to know our future
to have the guarantee
repeat it again
and again
that it’s
all under control
you know I’ll forget
it just gets
better and better
the more real
we are

Day 2838 – Why We Moved

We moved for a few reasons. To save money, to give me more access to the car, but especially because of the close proximity to Bret’s job. For fun, we set a timer to see how long the drive actually was when I dropped Bret off this morning.

Because of how we parked, we had to take a longer way. There were a number of buses, but thankfully we missed the school bus pickup in the neighborhood. I could have gotten back sooner if I didn’t catch the light at the school. Silly me, thinking I could. It’s a no turn on red light, so I had to sit through a whole rotation.

Total drive – door to door to door – 11:44
Total drive there – 7:33
Total drive home – 4:10

It could have taken only 3 minutes to drive home! Ah! Never fear readers, we will work on shaving this time down!
