Babies and houses! It seems each time I talk to someone they are buying a house (which by the way, every person I know who is getting a house is getting it within 3 days of each other!) or is having/had a baby. When did I get this old?!? (lol)
One day we’ll have a house and start a family of our own but this definitely isn’t the time. We aren’t ready for that. Still want to be selfish and you can’t be selfish when you have kids. I do however, love that people I know are having babies so I can play with them and talk about them. I do love babies. I just know I don’t want one of my own at this moment in time.
I just feel so old that everyone is doing all these things and John and I are just talking about getting him through University then moving and traveling. Somethings aren’t even on our “radar” yet. I know that’s completely fine. Everyone is on their own clock…on their own schedule…I just sat down and was thinking about these things today and realized how many people we know are further on their schedule than we are. C’est ok though! It’s just a shock to the system.
I got an invitation for a group that is for my 10 year high school reunion. Frig, was it that long ago!? Sheesh. Craziness. I know it’s coming in the ’09…it should be interesting…if I’m around. However, it seems I’m right on track with my grad class. There are a few married. A few engaged. A few with kids. And I’m sure a couple with houses. But it’s no where near the masses of everyone else I seem to be in contact with. Which makes me feel a whole heck of a lot better that’s for sure. There isn’t something wrong or delayed with us. Phew!
So congratulations to all you first time Mom’s and Dads and home owners!! We are so excited for you guys. 🙂 Don’t take offense but we definitely don’t want to be you guys. Sure, we may be envious from time to time but that’s life. It’s what will keep us moving. We are doing our own thing and you are doing yours and that’s awesome. Keep it up!
