Home Sweet Home

( Home )

We bought our current house just about a month after we got married. I was in Australia for work for the closing and Big Guy had to do all of the paperwork himself. Poor thing! We moved in a month after that and the following month we were pregnant. It was a whirlwind process. For [...]

He woke up for good just before 6, and it’s been downhill from there. I should add that Big Guy normally takes morning duty, [...]
