Earth To Emily

Just a little bit to report…

What have we been up to lately?

Not much!

Josh is finishing up his semester so he has been super busy.

I have been just doing regular stuff. Trying to get out and about even when it’s really cold outside (I know, there is worse to come). I’m making a bigger effort to cook more and clean up more, which is pretty difficult with a teething, climbing, almost walking, demanding kiddo bossing me around all day!


Josh is done with school this week, then he is off for 3 weeks. I am managing to get Christmas cards done just before the last minute this year, so I feel pretty accomplished. We have a small amount of Christmas shopping to do and hopefully we will have time to have a little fun and see some sights before we get shut in for the winter. I’d really like to go to Little Italy/University Village (according to our map, they are part of the same neighborhood, I guess?). I am always up for a big bowl of pasta.

I’ve been thinking very seriously about my future career and going back to school. It’s very hard to make a solid decision about it, though. For starters, me starting school in 2012 means we will most definitely be in Chicago until that is finished. Though I only had about a year left before getting my English/Creative Writing degree at WWU, I am no longer going in that direction. What I will will probably choose will mean about 2 years in school, possibly longer, especially since I am thinking about going only part-time at first.

Josh will be done next year, and then he’ll be out looking for a (hopefully) permanent position. What if he can’t find anything great in Chicago, but we’re locked down here because I’m in school? Grrr. Too many scenarios! I really wish I could just be worried about my own stuff sometimes!

Anyway, the dishes are calling me…we have a friend staying with us right now (the wonderful Ian Denning) so I REALLY have to pretend I am all tidy and housewife-like! 🙂

    You should be! Especially since he is acting as Josh’s man-date at his reading tonight.
