---Since last week, my mind seems to be running full speed, all day and all night, with no signs of slowing down. England is so much fun--we are taking full advantage of the opportunity to come here by exploring all that we can possibly squeeze in! Here lately I've been freaking out about life after England. I'm not working right now and Jason doesn't start working until July 1, which means the money that we have in our account is all we have until this summer. This makes me nervous, especially with two more full weeks in England and a trip back to St. Maarten for Jason's graduation. We aren't going to starve or run out of money...I'm not looking for sympathy or handouts of any sort, I'm just being honest. In this economy, it's difficult to find work and I hope and pray that I am able to find something that I have a passion for and something that will help support my family.
---Jason is wanting to buy a house in Hershey because we will be there for 5 years and with the renting rates right now, buying just makes sense. Well, we agreed that we would rent for 6 months to 1 year so I could find work and we could save up money for all the extra things that come with owning a home. Well, last night Jason brought up the option of buying right away instead of renting. Ohmygoodness...talk about freak me out! We talked about and I shared my concerns so we've agreed to rent until I find work and we have two incomes that are contributing to all the bills. We've never owned a home before, never even came close to owning a home, so I don't think we realize all the small things (taxes, insurance, inspections, etc.) that will need to be taken care of on top of the mortage payment.
---I'm missing my boys TERRIBLY! Some days when I walk in the door, my eyes still go to the floor looking for my two fur babies. I know Grandma is taking care of them and they are loving their nightly trips to Bean's (my sister's dog) house. I just hope they are missing us as much as we are missing them.
---Is it normal to beg and plead with your husband for a baby and then when the time gets closer, you freak out and think you should wait a couple more years?! Please tell me that I'm not the only one!
---When we get back home, I need to make an appointment for us to visit the dentist for a cleaning. It's been about two years since we've gone and we really need to get it done with our regular dentist so we don't have to go searching for a dentist right after we move.
**Sorry for all the randomness, but my mind is full! I figured it would be best to just get it all out there in one, long, boring post.
