Wow, I can't believe it is already August! The year is half over. That is bananas.
Remember about a month ago, when I posted that nothing has changed in our lives, and that all is basically well? Well, that's where we are. Still. I mean, some things have changed. The final student loan payments for my loans kicked in, but things are working out. The rats are full grown, for the most part. And...yeah that's all that's changed. It's kind of boring, honestly. But boring can be good.
In a way, I am looking forward to the next few months passing by. I don't like how time is flying, but I am hoping that in the fall and winter, our lives will be changing for the better. I have set a goal for Brandon to take his actuarial exam in October. That way when (if) he passes, he can use the rest of the year to get a job, and then we can sign another year lease on the apartment and work on paying off loans and saving up some money. After that we can start looking for a house. And I can get a puppy. Brandon agrees with this plan, I think, but he has not been studying for his exam. He has been out of school for more than a year and I am afraid the stuff he learned will fall out of his head. He is ready to move on to a new job, but has so far been unmotivated to study for this test (which is a doozy). That and he's tired. He works a lot, I know. And I feel bad about that.
Anyway, that's what's going on with us. We are having movie night tonight again- any night that we're home is movie night, or afternoon, or morning. Maybe tomorrow I can get some stuff done around the apartment and Brandon can get some studying done.
