Busy and Tired

It seems that summer time is always filled with us going non-stop for three months and it's EXHAUSTING! Every weekend is something else and I can't even remember when the last time hubz and I got to spend a weekend just lounging around, we are long over due for some quality time.

So the change I spoke of in my last post has been temporarily delayed but we're not sure for how long. As this was hubz change to speak about and it's not something he's ready tell anyone yet I'm just going to leave it at that. However, I am excited to say that hubz is going to college! As someone that already has BS in Accounting and is working on my MBA (only 6 classes left!) I think it's important to fully arm yourself with as much knowledge as possible. And while I realize that collge may not be for everyone I fully believe that hubz is going to EXCEL at it. (He's SUPER smart!) We'll probably be going to the same school, Strayer, and he meets with an admissions person on Tuesday. I'm so excited for him and completely ready to support him in this very exciting adventure he's about to partake in. Now we really have to get the office done.!

In other news, we made our first furniture purchase last Sunday. We bought a bedroom set, everything except a chest for hubz. We'll get that probably in January when we get our tax return. It'll be delivered next Wednesday. I'm SOOOOOO excited. I just can't sleep on a mattress on the floor anymore. Along with the furniture purchase we made our first bedding purchase as well and that will be here on Tuesday. So except for paint and curtains our Master Bedroom is just about done. Now hubz needs to get busy on my closet and we have to decide on what to do with the tiny bathroom.

Change is Coming

Change is coming to the Curtsgrl household, but since we haven't told everyone of the change I can't say what...just yet. However, I can say it's not that I'm KTFU, although I wish it was.

So stay tuned.... (not that anyone reads this, but...)

When I was younger, not that I'm all that old, I used to set goals for myself and most of my life I reached them. Some of the big ones were graduate from high school, get into my dream college (FSU but didn't go), graduate from college, but it was after graduating from college that those goals started to fall apart. I was suppose to go to Law School, that was part of my 10 year plan, but I didn't get in. So I came home more b/c this is where hubz was then b/c I wanted to come home. Then I floundered for a few years. In October I started back to school to get my MBA if I can't get my J.D. I can at least get one of the two advanced degrees I wanted. Now I'm excelling in my core classes, hoping that carries over to my concentration classes, but I still feel unfulfilled. I realize part of the problem is that it's taking so long for me to get KTFU but it's also because I don't have anything of my own. Hubz plays softball and has friends/family to hang out with, but I got nothing. My sisters have always been closer to each other, they are twins, then me, my best friend is already a mom and has other things going on in her life not to mention she's moving to Cali in 3 weeks and I'm in a different place in my life then people I use to hang out with in high school. I need something to give my life meaning so that's why i decide to do the 101 things in 1001 days. Too bad that's not going to well either, but I'm going to change that. As of 28 June I had exactly two years to complete my list of 101 things, so far I've completed 12.5, I've failed at completing 2 (giving dates to complete by wasn't the best idea) and I'm in the process of completing 3. My goal is to have those three in process done by the end of the Labor day weekend. Here's hoping I meet my goal.

Why do I torture myself so? The past couple of weeks I've stayed away from all baby related boards on The Nest. They were making me bitter and depressed and that's not good for baby making or my health in general so I made a pact with myself to stay away. However, in the last two weeks I've been peeking over on two of the boards that have less to do about actual babies and more to do about women trying to have babies, in essence ME! But let's get serious a mintue it doesn't matter. I'll be fine for a while and then I'll be right back where I was, bitter and depressed. I don't want to be, but I can't help but lurk some, some of those ladies are FUNNY!

Okay well, in case you couldn't tell, I'm still not KTFU!

Busy Weekend

Last weekend was 4th of July. The step-son came back from Cub Scout camp and we had a very low key gathering with family, it was nice. Sunday we had Church, hubz went on a bike ride with my besties husband, one of the nephew's had a birthday and the step-son left to spend a couple days with my dad and the nephews. Then Monday our busy weekend caught up with me and I stayed home to sleep. I was exhausted before I was ever ready for work so I took a mental health day to sleep and do laundry.

Now I'm prepping for SIL bridal shower this weekend and another nephew's 10th birthday next weekend. The next couple of weekends are packed with family time and QT with the bestie, we're 30 days out. Not mention I started back to school and while I'm mad I'm taking a course that I don't think I should have to take at least I think it's going to be an easy 'A'. SIL wedding is a month an half a way and my 2-year anniversary is two and half months away. It's crazy! I have to get busy on finding hubz a gift to match what he got me last year.

On the baby front, still nothing, but I've decided to take the next 3-months (when getting PG would be great but not great timing)to do nothing. No temping, timing, NOTHING. In October I'll reevaluate and decide if I want to go back to temping. I feel like I tired it for 5 months and it didn't work I can't see how it will. I am going to start taking prenatels when I finish my normal multi-vitamin, just b/c I've read it's good to start taking them even before you get pregnant b/c it helps your body get used to them. We still have 6-months before we should start worrying but I'm frustrated!
