Times are a'changin

There I was last night, at my favorite casual restaraunt, sipping a orange brewery beer on the patio, gazing at the Santa Catalina Mountains, with my husband, analyzing the market of the area we're putting an offer on a great home, deciding together what we're going to offer...

...and I had one of those moments.....

One of those moments, where you almost "step outside of yourself" and say "Who am I?"

3-4 years ago, I didn't understand how a credit card worked.....

 I didn't understand what interest rates were. I had never heard the word "PMI Insurance", "Active Contingent", or "CAPA". I had no idea about the time frame of polybutelene pipes and lead based paint.

I was concerned about...my hair and making sure my class schedule was good.

I always hear people say "Hang on and look around often, because the years go quick". I've never quite "bought into that" until last night -- when it all kind of dawned on me!

Do I regret it? Do I feel like it's all going too fast?

Not at all. I feel in the "right place" in life at this time. I love my job (even though it is the bane of my existence sometimes, and makes me crazy)..I value all my experiences I've gained. I have a husband who is incredibly perfect for me. I feel like I'm in the right place @ at the right time in all aspects of my life.

I hope everyone has a great weekend! I will be working, but am okay with that -- since I weaseled out and didn't work a single weekend in July! :)

On Monday, we will have been married for 2 years! Man, time flies when you're having fun!

I am glad that you feel at peace with where you are at. I have had alot of 'who is this girl' moments, espeically lately. Like I think of how much I studied for the CFA and I think - where did that motivation come from? Granted, I am a driven person, but the amoutn of time I spent studying for that test was amazing as I studied about 5-6 days/week. And then I thikn about how i get up at 5 to workout before work on Tues/Thur and again I think - what? What about the girl who struggled to get up at 10 on a weekend. Now I can't sleep past 7 unless I REALLY try.

Sending good luck vibes your way! Hopefully you find another house you love!

Ha. I think I must be in delayed adolescence! I still don't know any of that stuff!

I don't know that stuff either and I'm 63 years old! Happy 2nd anniversary, my dear!
