My Baby Birdies

When we finally decided to take down one of Christmas wreaths that was still up in March we found that a bird had started to build a nest so we left it up.

Now they’re gone and I’m experiencing empty nest syndrome.

Things I Shouldn’t Be Thinking About Yet

There are a lot of things that I have been thinking about lately that are currently impossibilities. Joe and I have been together for almost five and half years so there are lots of relationship-y things that I think about.

For example, I would absolutely love if Joe and I could buy a house soon, or even just live together just the two of us. But we are both too broke for that so we both live at home with our mothers. It’s definitely nice that our moms will still let us live at home, especially mine because I moved out for two years then came back home. But we’ve started saving and a house is my money top priority. By the time I graduate I’d like to be able to buy one. And Joe will be done with classes after the Winter semester, all he’ll have left are his internships. It’s a possibility, right? And we know what we want. Two stories, and enough land for him to build a separate garage with an apartment on top.

The other big thing that I think about is getting married. After five and a half years I think I’m allowed to think about that. But again, Joe and I are too broke to make that happen. I’m so excited to get married and be able to call Joe my husband. I have also thought a lot about the wedding itself. Well, not the ceremony, but a lot about the reception. Joe has a huge family so it has to be for a lot of people. I really just want a big party with good food, good booze and good music. I even have a theme, decorations and a dress picked out. I’m a bit ahead of schedule with that since we aren’t even engaged yet, but it’ll happen eventually.

The last thing I think about is having kids, but I mostly think about how I don’t want to have them right away. However, I also think they’re going to be very cute and I’m excited to play with them and all that jazz. Let me make this clear, I do not want kids now or any time soon. Joe and I have decided that we will have a kid by the time he’s thirty and he’s two years older than me. Seems like a good time to me.
