M3......

i have alot of trips coming up. it's not really that great of timing since seth just started his own business and money is VERY tight right now. but, everything seems to be hitting at once. i have a half marathon in san francisco next month, november i am going on a mexico cruise for my girlfriends bachelorette party, in december we are taking a family vacation to hawaii that we have had booked for 2 1/2 years, and in june i am going to new york with my mom, sister, and aunt for my sister's big 30! as i was putting everything on the calendar i began feeling a bit overwhelmed and a little selfish. most of these trips are already paid for (praise God!), but i will still need some money when i go. i will also be leaving seth to tend to all of my duties on top of him trying to work from home. i know first hand how challenging that will be, i can't imagine working from home! but.......yes i am coming to my point :).......seth has not complained NOT ONE SINGLE BIT!! if anything he has been excited for me and encouraging. he knows that i need time with my girls and how much i love half marathons (especially one in SF). he also knows the importance of tradition w/ my family (ny for the big 30). even with all the stress he is under at work he has not discouraged me from going. he keeps assuring me that he can handle it :) i know he can!
thanks seth :)

I didn't know that Seth had started up his own business. Evan is in school full time now so I totally understand the lack of money:) I hope you have great trips you are an excellent wife!

thanks alicia :)
seth started his own business two months ago.
how is evan doing in school? is he at csuf?

Evan is doing good he is doing his general ed at SCC w/ and plans transfer to CalState Fullerton. It is weird to be like starving students in our 30's w/ 5 kids lol! Evan wanted me to ask what kind of business Seth is doing?

i hear ya!! we are pretty much in the same boat just seth is not a student :). that is great that evan is going back to school.
seth is doing outdoor advertising. he is selling billboards, bus advertising ect.. pretty much anything that you market outside he sells. he got an office w/ some friends in the circle so he rides his bike to work. it was a scary move for him to make but i had a HUGE peace from God about it, so i told him to go for it. :)

:) Good for you guys. That was the same w/ Evan and I we prayed a lot about this decision and what it would mean for our family and definatly had confirmation that this was the direction our lives needed to go in order to grow and move forward!!!
