besides delicious cookie making, our lives are pretty normal. that means we are stressed, busy, don't-know-what-will-happen-in-the-future students. being married, according to a university of michigan study, gives the average women 7 extra hours of work per week. i learned that little fact as i was preparing trivia for said bridal shower this past weekend. being married, also, i have come to learn, adds quite a deal of stress to my already busy husband. he got a new job, which he is quite excited about, but now we wake up at 5:45 so he can be to work at 7. then he works until 12 or 12:30 and goes straight to school until 5. today he came home and made me tacos before i got back. wonderful, right!?
he's studying on the couch now, learning stuff and putting information in his head in hopes that in the very near future he can "support a family" with that knowledge. (i don't mean very near future as in a "family" is very nearly on its way, but rather i mean the urgency that aaron feels to "support")
side note: one of my professors did, actually, ask me if i was pregnant today in a somewhat roundabout way. no, i'm not pregnant. i just burped up a little stomach acid in your class once, chewed a piece of gum to make the taste go away, and said i puked in my mouth when you asked me why i was chewing gum. i guess he took that for morning sickness.)
anyway, back to aaron studying on the couch. all i'm doing is making rather delicious cookies. but such is life. i need him to get me serious and thinking about what i want to spend my time in life doing, and he needs me to force him to breathe and eat more cookies than he wants to.
now for some epic countdowns:
4 weeks until my last dance concert at BYU ever! and simultaneously, the performance of my senior project. this also means my parents will be in utah. hooray!
6 weeks of classes. that's it. then i'm done. graduation. no more classes. no more homework.
7.5 weeks until aaron and i will be in cancun. yes, the destination is confirmed. cancun baby. then summer time. who knows what that will bring!
