So the weather is FINALY nice in Chicago and Jen and I have really been enjoying it. She has been going to yoga school for a few weeks now and I have been trying my best to help out more around the house since she has been more busy. I have to say I kind of like the little routine we have gotten into. Our Friday nights are my favorite except we don't actually get to eat dinner together. When shes done with school I met her outside her school and we find a local bar to have a drink or 2, then head home. I feel like her school has been good for our marriage and has brought us closer. I started practicing yoga with her and feel much more connected to her. I would recommended yoga to any married couple looking to try something new.

Nothing much really new with me. The condo is still around so not much really to discuss there. We are looking at another price drop, however we do have 1 person interested, kind of, at the moment so our Relator is going to try and coax an offer. Next weekend is 4th of July weekend and I'm so excited that Jen does not have school and we will get the entire weekend to ourselves. However, I think her mom is coming for the weekend. It should be a good time though, Jen's mom is always a good sport and pretty much game for just about anything. I think it will be good for Jen to see her again and spend some time with her.

Emotionally I think I am getting better. I am starting to regain some of my self confidence that I lost somewhere along my journey of life. I think I have learned that I was (still kind of am) lazy and a bit of a procrastinator. I am trying to work on those 2 things the most. I am trying to use Jen as a role model because those are NOT 2 words I would use to describe her. I feel like the 2 of us have changed so much for the better since the winter and I am so excited for our future together. Someone just asked me how I would like to define myself and what impression do I want to leave on this world. I would define myself as a husband, and one day a father first. I want to leave this world knowing I got to spend the happiest days of my life with my sole mate and our family. After that I would like to be remembered as a successful engineer, but first and fore most as a good husband and a father.

  1. This is a great post. It is so courageous of you to write out how things are going for you mentally/emotionally. The last 3 sentences of the post made me smile. You and Jen are such a great pair, and will make a beautiful family. Excited that we can be a part of your lives and witness it. Love to you both-- kate, zach, & caroline
