Evenings and thoughts and t.v. reruns.....

I sit here at my shiny new computer, with the TV on a rerun of Two and A Half Men, and I can't help but feel completely and totally content in my life.  Sure, I'm not working yet, but I'm enjoying the time that I get to spend with Ava.  I mean, look at her.....who wouldn't want to spend time with her??? <3  She completes my life in a way that I never thought was possible.  It's amazing.

Joe likes his job, and is working days finally, so we have the evenings and weekends together, which is nice. We eat dinner, Joe plays with Ava, surfs the net, or whatever, and then goes to bed.  Once I get Ava down, and Mom and Dad are in bed, I usually try to get some sleep, but if that doesn't work, then I sit up and work on homework or play online, check Facebook, read a blog or two, and remember the people that I said I would call back that I never got around to calling. :(  It's amazing to me how much I forget to do that never would have been an issue for me before I got pregnant.  Seriously, I got pregnant, and my brain flew completely out the window.  Unreal.

I can honestly say that I am completely satisfied in my life right now.  My husband is amazing, our daughter is SO much fun, and such a good baby, and things are just really perfect.  Sure, we're living with my parents, and we don't have our own car right now, but I wouldn't want things any different right now.  Living with Mom and Dad is nice because we don't have to pay rent right now, and Mom is a HUGE help with Ava when Joe's not home and I have homework to do, or laundry, or taking my shower, or whatever.  She absolutely LOVES Ava, which is fantastic, and Ava is crazy about Grandma.  I love seeing the way Ava reacts to her.

School is going well, although my one instructor is apparently going to be difficult.  I emailed him a question about our reading almost a week ago, and still haven't heard back from him, and our assignment was due yesterday.  We still haven't received grades from him for week 1 either, which was due the Sunday before.  **shrug** Ah well, c'est la vie.  I'll just deal.  I only have to put up with it for another 5.5 weeks. Yay.  So far, in my Intro to Law class (the class where the instructor isn't a pain in the ass) I have a 93%.  I can handle that, as long as I can keep it up.  We'll see what happens.  I will be so glad once my classes are over and I can proudly display my diploma (or whatever they call it when you graduate from college).  I am really looking forward to being able to get a decent job to be able to support my family.  Then Joe can go back while I work, and get his welding certificate or whatever, and then I can work if I want, and if I don't want to then I don't have to. :)  I look so forward to being able to get a good job.

Mom and I are going to go shopping tomorrow.  Not sure what we're going to buy, but we're going shopping. :)  I'm looking forward to it.  It's been nice not working, and being able to just kind of hang out with my mom. I have really missed having her close, and it's so nice finally being here and being able to just hang out and go shopping or whatever.

Well, I suppose since it's nearly 11:30, I better get myself to bed.  Ava's going to likely be up early tomorrow, and we need to be dressed and out of the house by 9 to go shopping.  I will try to get better about updating more often, but I really don't know how many people even read this thing....Nighty night.

  2. Yeah, what she said! I miss talking to you, but I know how crazy chaotic life with a new baby is! I'm so glad that things are going so well with you guys, and you sound so happy! <3
