From Her Friday: Clutter.
Isaiah is starting classes in October at The Art Institute of FW. We’re so excited for him to be back in school and in such a great program that fits his interests. I have an interview for an internship with the school’s radio station, which definitely fits my interests. Unpaid, however. Which is definitely going to prove a challenge. I did get a part-time job with my old employer for the meantime, but it’s a 45-minute drive, so the paycheck will be so minuscule after gas and taxes. Anyway, things seem to be plateauing and we might have found a way to survive here in this situation. We are loving the amount of time we get to spend together, that’s for sure.
But the wedding. Ah, the wedding. We so want to be married. We needed to book the venue a year and a half from the wedding date, and because of our current financial situation and how busy we are trying to remedy it, we keep pushing back the date, pushing it back.
I am starting to feel the pressure of venues not calling back quickly enough and the date keeps walking backward into the winter in Chicago, which is forcing the wedding to definitely be indoors. I feel like taking a 4 month break on planning to finish the semester up, but then there’s job hunting and first job out of college starting up and I just don’t know. Doesn’t seem like there’s a point to pushing it back, we’re always going to be busy.
I have major, major respect for those of you who just came out the other side successfully. It seems like it’s just getting harder and harder to find time. If you have any tips, you know I am always open.
This was us in Branson, on the boat. Isaiah looks so nice, eh?! [cheesy smile]
I relapsed on smoking while I was in Europe, but now I’m 3+ weeks into quitting again. Feels pretty nice, I guess. We’re doing yoga and pilates every morning when we wake up, which is kicking our butt and also refreshing the new day for us. What’s new with YOU guys!? Jeez, I feel like it’s been a year, eh?
