End of the Semester

The kind of texts I get from Zay while he's at school. HA HA HA.

I've been so proud of how well Zay is balancing work, school, family, and his social life this semester. He's slightly annoyed that he's 32 and still trying to get through college, but better late than never. He finally knows what he wants to be when he grows up. Hey, that's more than I know for myself!

School (and being married the entire time I was in college) definitely taught me how to manage my time, combine activities, and get everything done well and done on time. And I can see how much he's improved going to school as well. Seeing him hopping out of the bed super early and heading to the gym to play basketball, then heading to work, then school, then coming home to do haircuts, and then finally being "off the clock" at the end of the day to play with Kal, put him to bed, and then catch up on our fave shows with me... has made me so proud!

Me being less stressed has helped him. He's happy when I'm happy. :) So he's been able to do well this semester because he knew I was super excited to see him at the end of the day and super supportive of what he's trying to accomplish. :) :)

This whole de-stressing and simplifying thing I've been trying to do is really radiating through our whole family and each of our individual lives as well. When mama's happy, everyone's happy, right? Without so many MUST-DO's on my plate every day, I have more time for things that make me happy. Which mostly means taking Kal to fun places, reading lots of books, and taking long baths. :) Kal and I put puzzles together a lot. It reminds me of when I was a kid and I did puzzles with my dad. Still one of my favorite things to do. We'll get outside more when the weather decides to figure out what the heck it's doing - it totally snowed today! What the? It's almost May!

Zay took his last final today and turns in a paper tomorrow and then he's done till the Fall. He's excited to spend more time with us and leisurely go to the gym all together as a fam rather than rushing it and squeezing it in when he can. He's looking forward to going on family bike rides again. I'm looking forward to going swimming, LOTS. I'm so excited for our Anniversary too. This is gonna be a great summer!

I'm so happy we're not adopting, ha ha. I'm so happy we're going to the fertility specialist tomorrow. I'm so ready for it. And I have ZERO expectations, so this fertility journey is only gonna do one of two things for me.... 1) get me pregnant or 2) confirm in my mind that we've done everything we can to get pregnant. I need that confirmation before I can really be okay with not having biological children. I can't be okay with it really if I know I didn't even really give it a fair shot. This is me giving my body a fair shot! The semester's over, Zay is ready to get on the fertility train again, and I'm happy no matter what happens. Soooooo... yeah! That is all. :)
