Big Plans for the Future

Yesterday, Brandon and I painted the back porch. I suggested that it should match the front porch (white railing). Brandon agreed, so we bought paint and got to work around 10am. Somewhere around 3pm I was exhausted and feeling crispy, so we called it a day. After we ate dinner, we painted for another hour. When I woke up this morning, he was outside finishing up, so the porch was completely finished somewhere around 10am this morning. It looks absolutely beautiful! It's the simple things that truly make me happy.

I will finally have insurance starting in September. I haven't had coverage since I graduated in May. Luckily, I have been well, but I need to see my OB/GYN to talk with her about TTC. We're still set on TTC starting in December. I started taking prenatal vitamins this week. Everything I've read said that this is the time to start preparing my body for pregnancy. It's all so exciting and scary at the same time. I can't believe that by this time next year, I will be carrying a baby. I guess that I should start taking better care of myself--meaning quit the caffeine and start exercising again.

Over the weekend, we babysat Becca and Naomi. We had so much fun with them! Brandon and I are both pretty good with kids, but I don't think that I'll be praying for twins any time soon. At least the girls are both best friends! I'm glad that we're able to help our friends out so they can have dates too. Plus, we actually had fun and let the girls play with the new superhero toys. Girls can like superheroes too!

I don't really have anything else going on. I need friends who don't have kids. It's hard for me to be around the women in my small group at church, because I'm the only "non-mom" as I like to call it. I feel isolated when they start talking about their children. I know they don't mean to only talk about children, but they do. I hope I'm not that way once I have a family. I would never want to make anyone else feel the way that I do now. I've talked to them about it before, but I'm sure that they forgot.

Well, I need to stop feeling sorry for myself. I have many blessings in my life, and just need to re-focus on the good things. December's not that far away. =)
