Oh, I almost forgot… last night I learned that the Hubster is not only a fantastic conversationalist in his sleep, but he burps too!!! hahaha
About 3am last night I woke up and thought I heard someone close the door on our fridge. I was likely still half dreaming, but the idea of there being someone in our apartment was enough to jolt me wide awake. As I laid in bed watching my Hubs sleep, he lifted his head up, burped, and then immediately fell back asleep. After determining that he was definitely still sleeping, I almost died laughing (as quietly as possible) because really, who is talented enough to burp in their sleep? haha I love it!
I was slightly worried, because for me burping at nighttime is usually a sign of an upset stomach, and he hadn’t been feeling well before bed, so I stayed up a little while to make sure he wasn’t going to be sick. He just kept on sleeping though, and I eventually fell back to sleep praying that I would remember the burp in the morning. Thankfully, I did. hahha I love regaling him with his sleeping stories in the morning when he wakes up. That’s the best part because he never believes me… someday I’ll catch him talking on tape. That will be amazing. hahahaha
Today, while at stake conference and having bumped into someone I know that was married almost a year to the day AFTER the hubs and I and finding out she was already 5 1/2 months pregnant, I realized that I’m one of the few women I know that were married around the same time I was that has not started a family. The Hubster and I are in no rush as we feel it’s very important to finish our post-secondary educations before having children, and we’re enjoying just spending some time just the two of us. I realize that some of these couples are in a different place than we are (educations, finances, etc), but really… I don’t get the rush.
As I stood talking to some friends of mine after conference, they all started talking about their pregnancies or kids and I felt so out of the loop. I don’t know if it’s my mind completely shut off to baby stuff right now (because I know if I start really thinking about it I’ll want to start having kids) or something else, but I felt so… out of it. I really wish we lived in a place with more young married couples that were still in school and not plowing ahead into family mode. I mean, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that, it just makes it difficult to ‘hang out’ or do things together when there’s a 6 month old baby in the picture.
I don’t know, maybe it’s just me finding yet another reason to dislike our city and ward… but I feel like it makes it THAT much harder to fit in. I mean, my geriatric ward is difficult enough to survive in, let alone now that the last of the 4 young married couples (aside from us) is now 5 1/2 months pregnant, and all the others have had a baby in the last 6 months. They all congregate and chat away, and I feel so awkward. I don’t know. It’s just…. weird.
Anyway, I just needed to rant. It’s not something I’m losing sleep over… just something I got to thinking about this afternoon.
