Enjoying life ... Now

In honor of International Women's Day yesterday, I ran 10 miles. It was my first time at a distance over 6.4 miles. I was getting bored at mile 8.4 but I pushed through to finish at 91:49 running time, plus a break to fix my sock and a break to switch my knee brace from one knee to the other. Needless to say, I am hurting (the good kind) a bit today but proud of myself. Who runs the world? GIRLS!

And now I'm about to get serious. I was speaking with a co-worker a bit ago about kids and how they change your life. She told me to do it all now, because although life doesn't end with kids (some might argue for them it truly begins), it dramatically changes. So...

Living in a building with a doorman overlooking the lake? We're living there now.  

Traveling as often--and as far as we can? We're doing it now. 

Not wanting to cook and going out for a "casual" sushi dinner that costs us more than a group meal somewhere else would? We've done it. 

You get the point. Tim and I want kids very much and in the near future. But we also want to enjoy our "us" time and establish ourselves enough to still be able to do things we like and provide for everything and more our kids will want. 

I know there is no "right" time for kids but for now--for the immediate foreseeable future, we'll keep a time frame in mind and we'll enjoy our life together.
