Well we are 3 days into September and I cannot believe that this is year is flying by so fast. I have been meaning to do a life update lately and here it is:
Recently I registered for my last 18 classes of school! I can't believe it, I never thought that I would be finished with my bachelor's degree in just 20 months. I am proud of myself for sticking with it because to be honest I wasn't sure if I would. There were times when I found myself struggling with the idea of writing another forum post or another paper.
I am so glad that I made the decision to go back to school and even more thankful that Kyle was willing to give me his Post 9/11 GI Bill. It has been such a huge blessing to me. I do have the desire to get my master's degree so I will likely start working on that sometime next fall.
I do have specific goals in mind when it comes to finding a job. Obviously, there will be no jobs before we move to Louisiana. Right now I have my sights set on getting a job at either a CDC (child development center) or CYS (Child & Youth Services) after we move to just get my foot in the door before I finish my degree. I would love to have a job working with kids within DoD so that moving so much won't be a problem.
Our HHG will be packed and picked up on September 17/18th! We have not found a home in Louisiana yet which to be honest is no big deal. Kyle will get his 10 days permissive TDY and this will give us a chance to figure that all out. I ended up not having the time to go out there like I had planned but oh well such is life.
Well not much new is going on with this. We decided to hold off on the 3rd round of clomid right now and wait until we get to Louisiana and get set up with a new RE doctor there. My mind and body are in stress mode due to the move so Kyle and I both agreed to just wait. I have noticed that some of the people I know dealing with infertility like to give their opinions about things we are doing. Every journey is different, every person is different and I am tired of being told what I am doing is wrong. It has been a 5 year journey for us and I don't need rude opinions.
I am still running and loving every second. I honestly have never felt better, I am at a healthy weight and my energy is awesome. We have 8 races left to run this year and I can't wait. I know that what I am doing is helping my mental and physical state.
Kyle is good, he is just ready to start this new journey at Polk. Being a company commander in a deactivating unit has truly stressed him out more than anything. I feel bad seeing him this way when he comes home from work. I know that only good things await him and his new job.
So much is going to change in the coming months but we are ready for it and excited.
Hope you all have a great Wednesday.
