Nate has a contract to work as a Fixed Duration Employee for Eli Lilly and it is up in 1 1/2 years. We sold the house last year in case he got a new job and we had to pick up and move across the country or something fun like that...well he did get a new job but we are staying in Indy! WOOT WOOT! I am very happy about that. I like it here, we are in between family and we have a great group of friends here. So smiles all around on it. Nate will have to travel to Chicago a couple times a month but not for long thankfully. Since there is a secure job, we can have a house! I love house hunting and think it is tons of fun. There are some great deals out there but man do they need work. We walked through one house that looked like they put mud or grease all over their feet and their animals and stomped through the house! I think we found one we really like and will probably put an offer on it the week Nate starts his job; March 7th. I am excited about the stability this brings. It is all still in God's hands and we are very thankful for the new job.

We have also been fighting this horrible virus again. We all had it for a month back in October but this time it is even worse. I have felt like death warmed over and Madeline has been clingy and fussy with this crud. She has been pitiful looking too with red eyes filled with yellow goop that hardens and a nose like a faucet! It is awful...She perks up for a while after she gets her medicine then fades pretty quickly. She is also a brute! She body slams the poor dog, 13lb dog verses 20lb baby is not really fair. She pulls hand fulls of fur from poor Maggie's tail and Mag's just sits there and looks at her. She finally growled yesterday but licked her 5 minutes later. I feel for that poor dog but she sure is such a good girl!
Well I still have plans to finish the pillows soon and think Saturday looks like a great day to do that. I hate unfinished projects and it has been since fall that I started 4 measly little pillows. Pretty pathetic that they are not done. Here's to finishing them Saturday and getting rid of this crud!
