Running into old friends can really make you think sometimes. About where you have been, where you are and where you are going. I ran into someone I was very close with not all that long ago while grocery shopping and boy has she changed. It made me a little bit sad and nostalgic in a way. This girl had become like a sister to me and some things changed and we kind of just stopped talking. On Facebook and in text messages, we have said hey I miss you and we should get together when you are in town but it never happens and it probably won't ever. We won't be in that place in our lives again. We were friends who weren't meant to be forever but just for a passing moment in time. I miss her. I didn't realize how much until I saw her but also seeing the changes made me see why we hadn't stayed close. There are other people in my life who I know will be there no matter what and for a very long time, hopefully. Though I guess in reality, we don't ever fully know.
In a half hour, it will have been a year since I married my best friend and the best thing that ever happened to me. A whole year! Sometimes I still can't believe that this is my life, no matter how much I sometimes complain or don't say thank you to God enough, this is my very blessed life. We have a home with two kitties whom we love and can't get enough of, even if they drive us crazy. We have been on the hunt for a dog to adopt because we would like the dog to be used to us before we introduce a baby into the mix. Speaking of babies, September has been the decided on month to start trying for a baby. I am excited and nervous and a million other things all at once. I have been doing research on trying to conceive and learning how to use the website fertilityfriend.com so that I can easily keep track of my ovulation cycle. I want to be informed and do what is best for me and baby. I have lost 12 lbs and feel good about it but stress is starting to creep in from finances and just life so my eating habits have slipped a bit parts of this week and into this weekend. Need to get back on track and be more serious about exercise habits. I need to get up to at least 30 minutes three times a week before September because I don't want to have to quit exercising because I get pregnant.
Well getting late and we are getting up somewhat early to go to zoo tomorrow to celebrate our anniversary :-D Also we both have Monday off so we can relax an extra day before heading back to work, so looking forward to some R&R with my superman!
