Did you miss me? I know it’s been about a gazillion years since I posted. (Slight exaggeration.) I’m going to try writing once a week…but don’t feel disappointed if I can’t manage that.
We’re enjoying our last real summer for a long time. The Romgi will be doing internships the next two years and then studying for the bar/beginning his career as a lawyer the summer after that. We keep meaning to take a quick weekend trip down to Moab, but between the Romgi’s hateful work-every-other-Saturday schedule and the various other events that come up, it hasn’t happened yet. Tentatively planned for July 17-18. Our big adventure will be a few days at my grandpa’s cabin in New Mexico in mid-August. Law school starts August 19, so I think the Romgi is planning to leave his job about a week before that.
Can I tell you a secret? I didn’t know that law schools (and dental/medical/business/etc.) actually have wives’ clubs – I thought it was a joke. But I’ve been invited to be part of the Law Partners group at BYU, which means that hopefully I can make friends with some people who have kids. We realized recently that aside from our siblings, we don’t really have any friends who are parents. I can see that as a benefit, though: our friends always want to play with the Bwun. As much as I adore him, it’s nice to have a break once in a while.
Recently someone gave us some diapers for the Bwun, but unfortunately he had already outgrown them. I posted the diapers on FreeCycle and got over 30 requests from parents who were trying to make ends meet. I felt bad about only being able to help one person – so I started looking for a volunteer opportunity. Tomorrow I’ll start volunteering at a community center in South Provo, with a summer reading program for kids in the area. Lately my days seem full with trying to improve myself, take care of the Bwun/the Romgi/our house, and helping friends and neighbors. I feel busy but exceptionally happy. It’s a good life, and I’m glad I have so many chances to enjoy it.
And, before I go, here’s a picture of the Bwun NOT enjoying our new IKEA Poang chair:
