This week has helped me to look on the bright side. It started out like any other week until I caught the flu from some mysterious means. (I had not gone anywhere public, no one else I know is sick, but somehow the virus found me.) Yes, it was horrible. I hate, I mean HATE to throw up. As I was throwing up every ounce of solid in me, I realized how lucky I was that I did not have morning sickness. I know I would have survived and would have gotten over the whole barfing thing, but seriously, I am glad I did not have to "learn" that lesson the hard way.
Secondly, my husband came home from work and realized that he had lost one of his wedding rings. Let me clarify a bit, we were married in Vegas in a civil ceremony and also in the Greek Orthodox Church as well. In the civil ceremony you wear your ring on the left hand while in the Church wedding you wear it on your right. (I have since combined mine to just the left hand, while he had 2 bands.) It was a bummer that he lost his ring, except for the fact that that means he has lost weight. He has put on the traditional marriage weight after we hooked up, but it is a good thing that he has shrunk a bit since working his horrible graveyard shifts at the old F.M. (The other good thing is that it was the cheaper of the two rings that he lost as well. )
While I am usually not the most optimistic person in the world, I am very happy that I was able to find the silver lining of this week during some very different 'zen' moments and can actually look back and say this was an ok week. Weird, I know!

After much searching, surfing, and visiting, the search is over. We have found our new apartment. It has been a difficult search to find something cheaper, nicer and just as convenient. Did I mention that we have 2 medium size dogs? Oh and we wanted a ground floor so it woudn't be such an ordeal to take them out when the baby is born? Oh and it had to be cheaper... significantly cheaper because I was not about to move while being almost 7 months pregnant for like a $50 dollar difference. Amazingly, we found it. I was about to give up hope, but right as I was getting to that point, it appeared like some magical angel had placed the add just for us on craigslist. The clouds parted, the birds sang, my husband was off of work so he could schedule an appointment for us to visit. And just like that with one short visit and small deposit later we have our new home. I am so glad that didn't unpack all the boxes from when we moved here. (it was very nice to have house guests at Christmas, with half the room filled with beautiful brown boxes). And now for the really fun part.... the rest of the packing! Now I know you are all jealous!

Since Travis has been working so hard at looking for a job, and has also become so frustrated with said job hunting (and the reduced hours at his current job), we decided to have a Travis Day in honor of him. It was all his choice movies, and all his choice of food on Saturday night. We started off the evening watching District 9, which was surprisingly good. Then after a dinner of meaty meat pizza and ice cream, we watched GI Joe. He had been wanting to see this movie since it came out and since GI Joes were one of his favorite toys as a boy. I can understand why Channing Tatum is such a hottie now, but other than that the movie was just ok. (not my favorite in the list of guy-movies that I have been forced to sit through). Since I am early to bed now, we carried the last movie over to the next day. Drag Me to Hell was the perfect show to watch on a quiet Sunday afternoon. It was pretty funny and surprisingly entertaining. So over the top, but still had some jumpy moments in it. I hope this weekend has reinvigorated Travis to find that perfect job out there. I have the feeling that it is just around the corner, but the waiting is killing me! Travis, I hope this was the pick me up you needed to refocus your search! It is now just a matter of time! :)
