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.
