Noni's Stargazing Saturday: Things Just Keep Getting Better

***Noni is one of my really good friends from college. We were even roommates for a year and some change. But she's done with school (for now). She's starting a family with a baby boy and working on herself and her relationship at the same time. Things won't always be easy, but they're usually always interesting.***

Quick Recap [My last post about Noni was two weeks ago. I expressed concern about how she was adjusting to a love life that could no longer be described as perfect. But she was doing okay. I also spoke of her staying on track with her plans to start school back in January. She really wants to put herself in a position of stability for herself and her son.] Read Stargazing Saturday posts.

In the two weeks since that post, things have remained good. If anything they've improved. Which is fantastic news.

Before Eric didn't stay... well-behaved... for very long periods of time. But this time seems to be different.

Last week, he and Noni had a talk about him doing more to help her out around the house and with their son.

Both Eric and Noni work long hours. But when they get home at night, that's generally Eric's time to relax and unwind.

Noni usually spends that time putting the baby down, sterilizing bottles, washing clothes, cooking dinner, etc. She hasn't expressed too much frustration about doing all this alone because she's a very domestic type of chick anyway.

But out of nowhere, Eric offers to do more. He volunteers to put the baby to sleep or help with laundry, or whatever it is Noni needs from him so she is able to relax and unwind a bit before the night is over as well.

She was very much impressed by his offer and his follow-through. There is a part of her that is a bit wary of everything because things have fallen apart between them before, right around the time there started being more demands on Eric's time.

I certainly can understand her apprehension. That's why I'm so happy for her that for now, things are going well. Eric is doing more around the house. They are spending this new free time she has during the evening together.

Eric and Noni are strengthening their relationship and their home. Nothing like raising a child in a stable home. At least that's what I hear.
