Grace in Small Things (paragraph style)

Trevor and I just spent some of that quality time you get to have together when you're married; the "let's sit down and dissect our bank statements and see if we're going to make it through the next few months" precious moments. This is not new to us, but it has been awhile since we sat down like this. And we know better. Financial reviews should be happening bi-weekly, monthly at most, as per our guru. But sometimes it's just easier to run and hide....

However, today proved exactly why we should never run and hide from these conversations. We did the math and while it's tight'ish, we're not nearly as badly off as we thought. In fact, should Trevor have to go to another city for work, he won't have to until after the baby's arrived and I'm well established in the new routine.

Plus, Mat Leave just started coming in this week. Add to that some sunshine, lunch with Dan and Naomi et al., and MORE FREE BABY STUFF, an you have the makings of a pretty happy day.

Meanwhile, I've been meaning to post this for ages, but it required finding the digital camera. Here is a beautiful baby blanket knitted by Laura B., also known to some very lucky grandchildren as "Grandma Honey":

Also, here are booties knitted by the person we affectionately called "Granny Sue" for about five minutes until she told us to knock it off, and who our baby will be very lucky to know as Grandma Susan:
Both of these items are coming to the hospital with me. Overall, I'm just feeling lucky today, know what I mean?
