Tidbits

What's a blog without an occasional bullet-style type post?

*The Walk of Hope is a week from Saturday - whaaat? I feel like I was just signing up for it! I'm really looking forward to the walk - seeing how many people show up, all the different team shirts, and recognizing the bigger purpose of why we are there. (Psst, if you want to contribute to our team there's still time - go here!)

*Vacation was fabulous. Adjusting to real life after vacation? Whomp whomp. (I think I'm going through gelato withdraw). I am however diving into all the books I brought back from the trip - it helps me pretend I'm not in an apartment I despise.
*Speaking of which, we are moving. Yes. I don't know where, and not for a little while yet, but I have already started packing up some boxes. I am so over this complex, this apartment, and oh my gosh over the noisy neighbors. Say it with me: this is the year we are done with one-bedroom apartments. Cross your fingers for an easy search and a good deal!

*It's so funny when I tell people we're moving - I guess people assume if you're in your early 30s you're buying a house which is so not the case for us. A friend asked us if we were looking to buy - I told her we're not for a lot of reasons (um, hello big fat responsibility I don't care to take on), one of which is any kind of down payment has been sucked dry by fertility treatments. Later I told that to Ben, and we started laughing because it's ridiculous how much fertility medicine/procedures cost! (See also: find humor where you can).

*We are halfway through the year. Halfway through the year! I...just...what?!

*My manifesto is almost done and it. is. fabulous. It's ready to be printed, I just have to figure out what I want that to look like - hopefully I'll have something to show you soon!

*I am still loving the Book Riot and the Dear Book Nerd podcasts. They make my commute so much less rage-y.

What's bouncing around your head today? Happy almost Friday!

Bouncing around my brain... I really wish that if I put in 36 hours by the time it's end of business Thursday that working a half day on Friday would be ok in the eyes of my office. Sadly it's not.

I'm loving that we have slept with the windows open the last three nights. Hooray no a/c and saving on our electricity bill and for cooler summer weather.

I'm wearing jeans on a Thursday and it feels SO GOOD.

A little over 30 days until I can hug you!!!!!

Ugh, thumbs down to how expensive fertility treatments are. I am surprised by how many people thought I would be buying when I moved back to Minneapolis (or when I moved to Charlotte). I feel like renting is becoming way more popular with people in our generation but I guess people just assume that everyone buys by their 30s.

Let's see, things that are on my mind are how tired I am, how different it is to travel when you love where you live (i.e. I am glad I won't be traveling as much for this job), the fact that I should really go through my mail, and the fact that it's Friday tomorrow! Yea!

As someone who owns a house, I think renting is just fine ha ha but I don't like that you don't have any option you want due to fertility treatments, boo to that. I hope you find somewhere great to move :)

I hope you have great weather for The Walk of Hope. I cannot imagine buying a home or condo in the DC/NOVA/Baltimore area. I lived in Baltimore and the price of buying was completely out of my range. My monthy rent for my apartment on Baltimore was double the payment I currently pay on my mortgage now. If I had not moved back to a small town in western Pennsylvania, I would be renting too!!!!

Cost of living is so crazy. It would be stupid for us to rent where we are, but our mortgage was cheaper than our apartment when we bought!

I honestly don't understand how we're halfway through the year already, it's nutty. And so glad vacation was so wonderful.
