Hey I haven't been on in awhile. There was no real reason for my disappearance. Just started looking at other stuff. Been kind of...wedding brain crazy (basically I turned into the chick I never thought I'd be because oh my gosh weddings!!!
), so I've been looking at wedding sites and such. But I figured I'd give ya'll a little bitty update on us.
Most exciting is that Partner got a new job! It's very exciting and new, and her old job was sad to see her go but encouraging in her career growth. So it's all been good. She really loves what she's doing now. And I understand....some of it. Kind of. Not really.
Also I am strongly considering a career change myself. It's been something I've been thinking about for awhile and I have a possibly opportunity to pursue it. I'm a little scared, it'll be a big change, but I think it'd be really good for me. Partner is very encouraging because she thinks I'd be really good at it.
And lastly, we are considering buying a house! We've been looking at homes, and we have the money to buy. We probably wouldn't sell our townhouse just yet, I'd like to rent it out (I own it outright), but I've lived her so long and it seems like a big scary change! But we've been looking to having a baby eventually and we'll need more room for that.
Oh! That wasn't the last thing! But this isn't really an update, in the whole "we want to have a baby" bit, we decided to go get some genetic testing done to make sure we're healthy if we decide to pursue having a baby that way. I found I'm a tay-sachs carrier! Which is not actually a good thing, but so long as our potential donor isn't a carrier there will be no issues. What is interesting is that this suggested a Jewish heritage that frankly everyone in the family has always thought possible. My great-grandfather and his brother moved to the states from Germany not long before WWII. Once they moved here the altered their last name and when my great-grandfather met my great-grandmother he told her he'd convert to Catholic for her, but never told her what he was converting from (she said she never got a straight answer and didn't want to press). But whenever we'd ask about Germany he'd never want to talk about it, there have just been a lot of clues over time that have made us wonder but never anything definitive. It's also possible I have it from my father's side, but my paternal grandma was pretty sure my paternal grandpa wasn't Jewish at all (she's Colombian, and her family immigrated here when she was a child from Columbia, so pretty sure it's not from her).
Partner called her mother to tell her she was in fact marrying a nice Jewish girl.
We've also been looking into adopting to get a kid. Lately it's been what we've both been leaning towards more, but we want to wait just a bit longer before babies.
Alright, did I keep that mini at all? Probably not. That's okay...we know how I am.
