Our life today

Sorry it has been a while since we've posted. There really has not been anything going on that is post worthy. We are quite boring.

Since this is a documentation of our life then I thought that I'd spend a little time sharing why we are so boring. Then maybe in 10 years when we look back on our blog we can think, "what were we thinking? I'd take that boring life over the craziness we have today". Hey, ya never know!

J and I are both in grad school right now. I'll be done in May and he has quite some time left. I have no desire to continue on to get my doctorate. I don't plan at teaching at the college level, so there is no reason. J, on the other hand, is on that path. We know for sure he will be in school for five more years. I am very excited for him and am proud of him for finally choosing something that he loves.

What does this mean? Well, it means we spend a lot of time on homework. The OSU Law Library is a magnificent place! It is dead silent. We have been spending our Saturdays there cranking out the work. When I'm at home I'm very easily sidetracked. At the library there is nothing but boring books, which J needs, all around me. I never thought I'd say I love the law school library, but I do!

Besides doing homework, our weekends consist of cleaning the house, catching up on sleep, and we try to do something fun like go to dinner on Saturday night. We know our life isn't exciting right now and we are okay with that. We both have a goal set for the future and are very driven to get it accomplished. Once May rolls around I will be done with school, which will open a whole other chapter of my life. This will be the first time in four years I haven't planned a wedding or had some sort of grad school work to do. I haven't quite decided what I'm going to do with myself yet!

So while I see family and friends around me who have so many fun and exciting things going on in their lives, I can't help but think that will be us one day. Until then, we'll enjoy our quiet study time because there will be a time where we will miss it!


  1. Sometimes I wish I still continued my education, I'm kicking myself in the ass now because of it.

  2. I am so happy to be out of school. I don't think I could go back now even if I had too! Kudos to you!
