I’ve officially been married for 1 month! Yay! It’s awesome and very fun! I am not “officially” Mrs. Voirol yet because the social security office is open 8-4:30 on weekdays and that’s when I work:( I’ll have to be “sick” one day just to change my name! You know you have to send your marriage license to change your passport?! Scary! You can’t use a copy! I hated when I had to send my birth certificate to get my passport originally. And now I can’t find my birth certificate! FYI-if you have a lockbox, I suggest you actually USE it!
We have decided to hold off on the baby making for a couple-few more years. We have a lot we want to do and accomplish before we have another baby. We’d like to save up more money & I;d like to be atleast a done with my sophmore year in college. Maybe even more! We are quite content with our family the way it is now (even though we could stand to get rid of a dog or two!)
I am starting back at college in the spring part-time. This is because I have to pay for these 2 classes and I will once again be eligible for financial aid through IPFW. Also, I will still be working and I still have Jack so, I think 2 will be enough! After that, the plan is to get financial aid and tough out a fulltime work schedule with 12 credit hours for atleast a year. Then I will probably cosider just going to school and being a mom for awhile. Jess and I have gotten used to a lifestyle that we’re not quite ready to quit yet! (i.e. having extra money to spend on fun stuff and not having to worry about the bills!) We will start to live more on a budget though so the transition will be easier whenever we need to go down to one income.
I am also hoping to fix up our house so we are happy with it, then sell it or rent it and get a bigger one. I am getting quite handy around my home! Labor day weekend I plan to remove a sink/cabinet and install a new one so, if anyone wants to come over, let me know! I will provide food and alcohol if you want!!
These are the things we want to accomplish before we have another child. We are in the process of sharing with one another our 5 year plans and fitting them together to make it work! Jess of course, wants to focus on his book more and I am all for that! The sooner he and Allen get published the sooner he can just stay at home with Jack and write! Yay!
I am so happy to be where I am in life and to have the wonderful friends and family I do to support me and help me through my fabulous life!!
Stay tuned for more AmAzInG aDvEnTuReS!
