Living without contingencies
For the last year I have been living life with contingencies.
"I plan to do X, but I might not be able to because I'll be knocked up by then".
"I would like to do X, but I probably shouldn't because it might interfere with getting knocked up."
"I better do X right away, because I might not have the chance later when we have a baby."
Living like this is exhausting, inconvenient and ultimately disappointing. Enough is enough. Henceforth, I will not make contingent plans, but rather do as I like and when it pleases me. If pregnancy enters the equation (by the grace of ceiling cat), we'll deal with it then. My first act under this new policy will be to get back into a consistent workout routine. I signed up for a bootcamp at work which begins March 1. In the meantime, I will start dragging my ass out to yoga and do some running on the weekends. Huzzah!
