Family Journal: Friday April 24, 2009

We are still enjoying our glorious week of holiday! It sadly comes to an end on Monday, but we have been having some wonderful family time.

Nadia and I have dedicated ourselves to running daily. Two days ago we ran in the Friendship Park area of New Belgrade. Owen and I stopped to take some photos and had a great challenge of trying to catch Nadia on the way back to the car. Yesterday Nadia and I ran in the Banovo Brdo park. We’re heading out again this morning, taking full advantage of having a nanny hear to watch the little ones.

It feels good to get so many consecutive days of running in. Our busy work schedules and having little children really cuts into our exercise time. I wish we had time to exercise every day. Oliver and Ocean are just too small to take both of them with us.

“We” completed a flower garden yesterday in our yard. It is a spot that is protected from the soccer and play of the kids and is really unused. I put the pronoun in quotes as Nadia envisions gardens, but I do the actual work of putting them in. It is quite relaxing and gives me a sense of accomplishment.

We are using the week also to do things around the house and in our financial affairs. I completed the medical claims for this year. Since August, Ocean is in the lead with $472 worth of medical costs, and Nadia is in second place with $330. We have a family total of $803 worth of bills. The school provides us with AETNA insurance and they will reimburse us for most of it. I forsee using more with Ocean and Oliver’s vaccinations. Today my goal is to repair the cabinents in the kitchen and boys’ bedroom.

We went to the Usce Mall last night and went bowling. Great fun!
