Aiming for progress, not perfection.

"...being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you
will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus."
Philippians 1:6

married (and graduated and working and...) and living with mom.

so it's inevitable that you will all find out. i mean, assuming there is a living, breathing human out there that actually reads this thing.

my first inclination is to try to keep it a secret.

but when my address changes and it takes me at least an hour to get to work and i never invite you over anymore, you'll realize it.

it's just a matter of time.

ok.. it's not that bad.

but i can't help but feel a hint of sheepishness creep in with this announcement:

landon and i are moving in with my mother.

there, i said it.

again, it's not that bad. i love my mom. she's one of my best friends. and she has a huge, beautiful house in prosper with plenty of room to share. and she's so kind to even consider letting her 23-year-old, married daughter with a college degree and a full-time job move back.

and it's only for nine months.

we're going to pay off this nagging credit card debit. that's what we're going to do. i'm convinved anyone who works for a credit card company is going to hell. there is nothing positive about credit cards. but don't get me up on that soap box. it's a long way down, and i don't think you have the time or the interest.

but we have interest - high interest - and it's disgusting us so much that we're taking drastic measures to eliminate it.

so here we are.

T-minus 28 days until we move into the upstairs bedroom on rock hill road.

and with that, T-minus 360-some-odd days until we purchase a house with zero credit card debt.

keep your eye on the prize, sarah. keep your eye on the prize...
