Reality

The "summer" is over in regards to Jason's break. We had a good four weeks together. The summer was rough on us both, and truth be told, I have a hard time adjusting; adjusting when Jason goes back to school in the evenings, and also when he is home. While I am thrilled to see him, I get so used to my own routine, that I have to adjust all over. It's a viscous cycle, ya'll. #FirstWorldProblems.

At the end of his Spring semester, while I was on a cruise with friends, Jason accepted a new job, and was about to start the summer term, which consisted of a crammed seven weeks of Hell, and a new job. Fast forward and the job he started in May wasn't working out. Husband was miserable, and started to look for new employment. Of all the coincidences in the world, Jason applied for a posting that had little information listed other than it was an insurance defense firm in Tampa {which is what Jason was going before the new job in May}, and found out the following day, he actually knew two of the three attorneys at the firm, and they offered him a job on the spot! Things seem to turn out how they're always supposed to, huh?

So. Jason finished the summer with decent grades, and one year of law school under his belt, and another a new job.

We took advantage of all the time we had, no matter how short it was going to be. We both had to work, but maximized our time with friends, family, and each other at night and on the weekends.

We went to a wedding in July, several Rays games, canvas painting {and ahem, drinking}, multiple dinners out, Jason was able to play golf a few times. We played trivia with friends. We took a trip to Long Island, NY, and NYC this past weekend to see friends get married and be tourists in the city.

It's been a wonderful month, and as always it is sad {for me} when it's over.

But reality has set back in and we're back to our daily grind(s). All we can do is enjoy the time we have, when we have it, and move forward.

Sometimes, I hate being an adult. But there is still no one I'd ever want to go through this life with, than that guy I married.

XOXO,
Nichole

  2. It'll all be worth it in the end. I'm glad you guys had a great month!

    I do find that back to the routine can provide a comfort of its own.
