Catching Up

It feels like centuries since I have last blogged. I took a break for a variety of reasons. First being that I was just too busy. I was blown away with the amount of time people have with their lives that they can blog. Then I realized that it was a bit of a priority thing. I'm currently working full-time and going to school full-time. That's my life! 

How do people do it? How do people manage going to school, working, being a good wife, and still keep their sanity? Today, I found myself telling my mother that I am wonderwoman. It's a shame the house isn't clean and a delicious dinner isn't coming out of the oven right when Mr. Schroeder gets home. Life just doesn't work like that for us. And I've come to terms with the fact that that's okay. 

I realized that I missed blogging. I missed the amazing people I had met through it, but more importantly, I missed writing and documenting my life. Something big happened. We bought a dog!

K. Don't even ask me how adding a puppy on top of my life has allowed me to keep my sanity either. It hasn't. I've never had a dog. So I'm learning. I'm constantly googling things. I find it a bit comical simply because everybody has their own opinion. It's like parenting. I'm currently kennel training my dog (His name is Rocky, by the way! He's the cutest, huh?) and so many people find a reason to tell me why that is wrong. Guess what, peeps? The kennel thing is working out just dandy. Anyways, he's adorable. He's fun. And he keeps me from getting depressed or lonely when Trevor is away (because he is, all of the time). 

Trev decided to go back to school. He's currently taking 20 credits and doing his prerequisites for the fire academy. Folks. How does one take 20 credits and work 50 hours a week? That's madness. The man is crazy. I never see him anymore and that's been fairly difficult. Throughout the last few months, we've been a bit more of room mates than husband and wife. Except we sleep in the same bed. I suppose that's a perk! 

Trevor and I celebrated our 3 year wedding anniversary. What? Where has the time gone? The longer we've been married, the more we get hounded for not having children yet. I sort of wish I could direct 100% of individuals who ask to this post.

Can I post an apology regarding Mormon Monday's, too? I've received questions. Great and fabulous questions! But have needed this break to figure some things out. Hopefully I'll be back in the swing of things in no time. Life has been pretty good to us lately. It's been a roller coaster of emotions yet I still tend to love the life I live.

  1. Yay! That's so exciting you got a puppy! He's so cute! We learned this week that we are not ready for a dog while dog sitting. Posts on that coming later... I agree that your husband is crazy though, twenty credits is insane!!!! They make you get special permission to go over 18 at my school, man! But I'm glad you're back, I missed you, although I totally understand and respect blogging breaks!

    1. Thanks so much! It's funny because pets are actually so much more work than I imagined. But he's been so worth it. He's currently laying on my lap sleeping (and snoring) while I type this. Love him!

  2. I feel you on the baby thing, we will hit 3 years in June and it comes up ALL the time. My M.I.L. was booking airfare for a family vacation and told me if I got pregnant right away we could still go on the vacation because the baby would be old enough to fly.

  3. Trevor's schedule is crazy, I don't know how he does it!! I can barely handle 9 credits and 32 hours of work, does he ever have time to sleep?? (And by the way, that was even before we had a house to work on and I was pregnant that I couldn't handle that....)

    I'm glad kennel training is working well!! I love letting Howie roam during the day (only because he can go out whenever he wants so no accidents... unless it's cold and wet outside and he's a pansy... but those days he gets locked on the main floor) but I wish he were still kennel trained. He was so good at sleeping in his kennel and riding in his kennel in the car when we first got him, now he cries until you're heartbroken because he likes his freedom and wants to be with his humans :P It's Joe's fault, I'll just tell you that haha, he decided the puppy was too cute and fluffy to sleep by himself one night and the puppy never went back to the kennel...

  4. My dog is kennel trained and she loves it! She will go into her kennel of her own accord when she is tired and just sleep in there. It's so handy as long as it's not used as punishment! Don't get me wrong, I've done it a few times in the heat of the moment when she did something particularly maddening, but just don't make a habit of it and you'll be fine! Good luck :)
