This weekend we traded Alana’s 2007 Toyota Yaris for a used 2010 Honda Civic. The yaris had 166,000 miles on it, and needed a new horn, and probably other work done to it. The Civic has 44,000 miles on it, and doesn’t need any work.
The fact that we both drive Honda’s now pleases me greatly! Her Yaris was the last thing that needed to be taken care of since landing the position at her new job. All the outstanding bills that lingered from her 11 months of not working have been paid. Everything else that we fell behind on has been attended to since this May, when she landed this job.
The car has been taken care of now, and we are current on everything. We look forward to booking our wedding venue in a few weeks, and to moving into a townhouse sometime early next year! =)
We made a doctor’s appointment for me in early August. We made the appointment so that I can inquire about….well, a fertility test. And meet with a doctor in the network of our health insurance, and discuss finding “the doctor for us” as we begin to embark on the crazy journey of same-sex family planning.
The fact that we are at this point is absolutely crazy to me! It still shocks me that she landed this job sometimes. I was so heartbroken over thinking that we wouldn’t be able to have a big wedding, or go on a honeymoon, or start trying to have a family of our own anytime soon that it still seems surreal to me now when we discuss booking the venue. Or going to Costa Rica for a two week honeymoon. Or scheduling an appointment for me to inquire about a fertility test…
But it did happen. She got the job, and we really are at this point! So I’m going to soak up the fact that we both have really decent cars, and health insurance, and a newfound security in ourselves, and that everything is going exactly how we wished it all along.
Last week was the first time I went to hot yoga more than once in a week, and it felt absolutely amazing. My schedule has changed at work, and I’m now able to go to hot yoga four different days before work, rather than just two! This pleases me greatly. My yoga practice dwindled a bit in June as I fell into being tired, and then a cold, and bouts of laziness and indulgence.
Going twice last week was like a wake up call. I loved the way my body and mind felt, and I’m craving more of it. I’d like to try to go at least 2-3 times a week for the next few weeks. I “adjusted” my 4th yoga class this past Saturday. I only have one more class to “adjust” before I’ll be handed my teacher certificate! The fact that I’m at this point seems surreal. Things are really coming together, and I really need to start showing up to my mat more often. So that I can breathe, and accept, and just take it all in.
My Aunt and cousins will be in town from Arizona this week, and that’s just so exciting. I always look forward to spending time with them in the Summer.
I think I’m going to go practice a few inversions against my living room wall before jumping in the shower and getting my day started.
Namaste! Gonna wrap this post up with a few selfies, just because.
