although ave looks like shes ready to attack/ weird creeper (which is how most of her pictures turn out), she and i are happy to be back. trae and i have made a resolution to make the next six months even more enjoyable than the first six.
our pathetic attempt at a self-portrait
we arrived back on thursays. jet lag and all. thankfully we are slowly catching back up, thanks to late mornings, laid back schedules, and frequent naps. we are loving this new apartment. its nice to have it to ourselves for a little while, but it will be nice to have family back in town soon. it is so much homier (word?) than our previous residence and it actually has room for us to live in, not that i'm complaining about our other home, i'm just much more comfortable here, so is ave. i'm embarrassed to admit, but i cooked my first meal in over 4 months on friday, not that i had another option before. i made tacos. figured i would ease myself back into the process slowly, and they were great.
avery finally started feeling better a few days before we flew back. poor girl was miserable for too long. turns out it was some internal bacteria infection from raw food or drink, but there was definitely something else accompanying it, either tonsillitis or a sinus infection or something. she started to fever a little again today so i'm praying shes not coming down with something again.
also, traes brother matt came home the day before we left. it kinda stinks that we only got to spend a few hours with him. we were so sad to miss the homecoming today and spend more time with all of trae's family. guess we can only hope that he'll come visit before life gets too crazy for him.
proof that she really is sweet and innocent
