Hello...is This Thing On?!

Friday, July 1, 2016

Wow, can't believe its July! Where has the time gone?! I haven't blogged in a month! I need to get back on my game! So whats been going on?! We have been SUPER busy!


Almost 6 years ago to the day we made our first trip to Wisconsin. We were taking a day trip from the Mayo Clinic just to take a boat ride down the Mississippi in La Crosse, Wisconsin. Little did we know that 6 years later we would be moving there…whoa!



We took our first trip in late April to check out the area and make sure it was a place we saw ourselves. Then in early June we took our first “official” house hunting trip. And the following weekend I was back up for an interview. We’ll head up again for our final house hunting trip in early July.



This whole moving thing has its highs and lows. Sometimes I’m excited about it and I am looking forward to the adventure and other times I am literally making myself sick to my stomach because I am so stressed and nervous. And then sometimes I almost break out into tears at the airport when I think about how overwhelming all of this is.



I also feel like I am at a crossroads of some sort. As I waited in my car for my interview, since I was 45 minutes early, I found myself saying, “I don’t want to do this.” Maybe it is because I felt like the job wasn't right for me. I feel like I'm at a point in my career where I shouldn't have to take a job just to have a job; I need to make sure its the right fit or maybe I feel like I need to take a sabbatical and I’m not even 30 yet!! I really want a break. A chance to relax, and de-stress, a chance to take care of our daughter and do fun things with her. Like take her swimming classes, the splash pad, art classes…you know.



But what does having a second income mean for us… It’s the “oh shit” money. The money that we needed to take care of Lola in her time of need, the money that makes getting the car repaired a no big-y, the money that would make a hospital visit not such a big deal.



I had originally titled this post "Wisconsin and A Midlife Crisis" LOL


The 4th of July weekend is here and I cant wait to take some time a relax a bit. I may start working out again (I haven't since April since we have been doing a lot of traveling on the weekends).


And in other news...Our little bulldog puppy will be here soon than we thought since the mommy just went into heat! YAY!!!
