I can’t believe it’s March already! Spring begins this month in the United States. SCORE!
Pittsburgh has been cold lately (tonight’s low is 5°F), but I saw about six blue jays on campus today. My theory is that if birds are appearing in the northern states again, then spring must be pretty close! I act like I know these types of things… haha. And I just admitted to counting birds. I am weird.
So, what have I been up to lately (aside from counting blue jays..)?
-Dealing with tummy troubles
-Enjoying life in general!
I suppose I can elaborate on my little list. I’ll start with the struggles first.
Jimmy and I still don’t know where we’re going to live once we’re married. We have three months to figure this out. We’ve been looking at houses in the area that he currently lives in, but they’re all very expensive. We’ve loved a handful of houses in the area where I currently live, but living on “my side of town” would force Jimmy to commute 50 minutes or more both ways to work each day.
The good thing is that everyone in my immediate family (except my little sister and I) is a real estate agent. This has been such a huge blessing. If Jimmy and I want to see a house or get info on it, we literally have instant access through my mom, dad, or brother. I know that God has a plan for us and where we will live. In the meantime, Jimmy and I are learning to trust and be patient!
The other struggle is the tummy troubles I’ve been having lately. I’m having issues sort of similar to when I had a pretty bad stomach infection twice in the past. Is it terrible that I don’t really want to go to my gastroenterologist to find out what’s up because every time I do I either have to take crazy medications or have minor surgeries? I’m just taking it easy and waiting to see if I feel better soon before I schedule any appointments.
School has been chugging along! I’m enjoying my classes (aside from statistics) and learning a lot. Deaf culture is still my favorite class. I might have to devote a post to it at the end of the semester!
Wedding planning has been coming along well, too. Jimmy, his mom, and two of his groomsmen picked out everyone’s tuxes last week. My cousins also tried on their bridesmaid/junior bridesmaid dresses yesterday! Both of their dresses are going to be that blue color.
Well, this post is pretty long, so I’m going to get back to my linguistics homework!
Is it almost spring where you live? If so, have you been seeing any signs of the upcoming season?!
