Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes

So I have come to the somewhat-difficult decision to defer school for a year. I am kind of bummed, I had really psyched myself up to get back into academia, not to mention the investment in a brand new librarian wardrobe of cat eye glasses and gray sweaters that will now have to lie in wait for another year. But with the way this job is going, I am just not going to have time to get a Masters and get married and, I don't know, SLEEP.

On top of all of these life changes, The Funasaurus has decided to switch firms, so he's going to be “between jobs” around the time of our wedding, and now there's murmurings of, “Maybe we should look into one of those gorgeous new homes that they're building down the street.” Because that won't take much time or money. On top of THAT, The Funasaurus' sister is moving back to town and IS going to be buying a new home pretty soon, but in the meantime she and her boyfriend are moving into our spacious 1200 square foot house for a couple of months, and so, you know, that'll be... cozy.

I think I'm glad I never watched Big Brother.

And now I've got to get back to the job that usurped my higher education.

That stinks, Princess, but just remember, plans change, and that is ok. Something to do with the fluid nature of life. If it's meant to be, it will happen. You know that :)

You'll get there when the time works better for you. Besides, think of all the money you are making to buy shoes and wedding stuff.

I've also learned that if cook crappy, they will leave sooner. Just a tip.

Putting off school sucks, but I couldn't imagine planning a wedding while in grad school. But I'm lazy like that.

You should still get the glasses and grey cardigans. Just make sure to skip the orthopedic shoes.

Bummer about school, but I'm sure the shreds of sanity that remain post-wedding planning will thank you for your decision!

As everyone else has noted, life's path is rarely a straight line - sometimes you just gotta go with the flow

Hey I've put off finishing school for ages now and I'm doing awesome!

Hold on a second, my mom wants me to help her bring in the groceries.

There's time for you yet - I didn't get my BA until I was 56 and my masters until I was 58. You're much too young to be a librarian...
