Plan for tonight (here comes the mind-blowing Friday night plans of a 20 something): Clean the house, grocery shopping, walk the dog and make dinner. I’m reading a great book that I would love to dive into more tonight. Exciting huh? I’m so boring lately. I want to get everything done tonight so we can sleep in tomorrow and then head to Niagara on our own time. It’s only a 2.5 hour drive, so it’s not bad.
Things are settling down at work, for the time being at least. Although I’m always on edge for the next crisis/ unpleasant confrontation, it’s been pleasantly dull this week. I’m bored out of my mind (which makes the days VERY long) but I suppose it’s much better than being on the verge of tears or a raging outburst every second of every day. I wish there was just a happy medium I could find. Is it too much to ask that I am busy and challenged, yet not completely stressed out and overwhelmed? It’s one extreme or the other. I’m thinking my job is safe for the next little while too, which is a relief.
OH! We’ve made a rather big decision too. We had originally planned to start TTC at some point this year, but we talked about it after giving it a lot of thought separately, and we’re going to wait until early next year. That gives us a year to get the credit cards paid off and for Bub to look for a better job. It also gives me one more summer to be just me. I can do my white water rafting, and hopefully get another skydive in… not to mention a group camping trip and cottaging on weekends. I always said I’d like to start around 25 and I’ll only be 24 this may so it’s about what we planned anyway. I think the house just put me into fast-forward for a little while, but I’ve realized now that as much as I am dying to start a family, we’re in no rush and we’re not done being “carefree” quite yet. The in-laws may be a little disappointed, but they’ll live.
