Life is good!


Tuesday, June 26, 2012

It hit me on my drive home...life is GOOD! I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired. I finally have the career I've been dreaming of, school is over, finances are getting better, the gym membership is renewed, I have a great plan for losing weight, I have a wedding to look forward to in 2 months...I'm just happy. I love my life.

I can honestly say that for the first time in 2 years, I'm thinking that if I wait to get pregnant, that might actually be ok. I've been waiting so long to be a veterinarian, would it kill me to wait a few months to enjoy life and enjoy the summer before having to deal with morning sickness, gaining weight, being tired...let's not forget the possibility of needing to be on bed rest (who knows, right?), having a horrible birth, horrible recovery...you never know, right? One of my co-workers was complaining about not getting any sleep at night because her toddler kept her up ALL NIGHT. He wasn't sick, he just wanted attention and she couldn't get a decent night's sleep. The other co-worker, who just went on maternity leave finally, is so stinking pregnant, she can barely move, has to sit down every hour to put her feet up, can't bend over, sweats with the slightest bit of exertion and just looks miserable. Now, I'm not saying that I wouldn't be over-the-moon excited to come up pregnant in a month or two, but damn, maybe I should enjoy this period of a new life as a new vet out of school for a bit: go on vacations, enjoy lazy days on the lake, do what I want, when I want...because that will all change when I get pregnant (and stay pregnant this time) and have a baby or two, right? Plus, I'm only 32. Having a baby at 33 or 34 isn't the end of the world...baby #2 at 36 - 37, right? That isn't so horrible.

Work is fun: I saw a bunch of dogs with bloody diarrhea today, lol....what a way to start off my career!

    Congrats on graduating! My daughter says she wants to be a vet. She is 9, though, and I think an awful lot of 9-year-old girls want to be vets! You are wise to wait on the baby. Not long. I wouldn't wait more than a year, but starting at 33 shouldn't be a problem. I had my only baby at 39, and wasn't able to have anymore, so you don't want to wait too long, but 33 or 34 should not be a problem. Congrats again! I envy you!

    DEFINITELY enjoy this new phase of life! And yes, babies change everything, so holding off for a year or two is entirely reasonable!
