I’m trying to share a little more about my personal life on the blog, so today‘s post is going to be more that route. I’m going to try to keep this type of post to Friday, so if it’s not your jam, feel free to skip Friday posts :)
Eric has gone back to school. I talked a little bit about some the financial changes we are going to experience (I plan to talk about that a little more at some point), but so far the whole time thing has been the most difficult.
Eric was fortunate enough to receive an offer from his company to stay on part-time. It was a very generous offer, and we both felt like it was something we couldn’t say no to. So he is working 20-25 hours a week at a busy financial services company as well as being a full-time student. I don’t think there are many other full-time MBA students in his program who are working at all.
So there is that. Then there is also the fact that we have been out of town the past two weekends (and not together). Eric had a fun weekend with a bunch of great guys swimming, playing golf and doing a fantasy football draft. I went to California last weekend (don't worry, I'll share more about that soon). So, they are all fun things, but that also means that we haven’t spent any time together. And since quality time is a love language for both of us… well, it’s been rough.
This isn’t meant to sound negative at all. Life is good. We are so blessed. We are blessed to be able to go to school, we are blessed to have a home to come home to, and we are blessed to be able to spend time with our friends. It’s just been a crazy time; and adjustment time.
We are learning to be more disciplined with our time. We are learning how to stay connected even though we are not together. We are learning how to plan meals way in advance so we have food to eat when we are too busy to eat. We are learning.
And guess what? I’ll be sharing some of that journey with you. Woot woot.
