We, Robert and I, are living a very unique and different life. One we have never lived before and one we will probably never live again after basketball. You see I don't have a job (it's kinda vital to speak German to be a nurse in Germany, go figure). We plan to live overseas for a few more years (exact and where we do not know) and hopefully some years a job opportunity for me will present itself. But for right now I am enjoying my role as a stay at home wife:) We don't have kids, Robert has practice just once (maybe twice) a day, we don't have pets...all those things that keep life busy are pretty much absent from our life at this point. So that arises the question again...what do we do every day?
Well we eat and sleep. That is it. Have a great day!
Hehe I'm kidding, I'm kidding. Sort of:) Like I said we are living a very unique and "rare" daily life right now. Here is what happens on a normal day in the Lewandowski household...we sleep in
Yep, I know what you are thinking. We are bums.
(well not as much rob since he works his booty off every day)
And I sure feel like it! If you can't tell. That is why I feel like I have to explain myself! I went from being in nursing school full time while having a job while planning a wedding while babysitting, to working nights while being a newlywed while studying for my NCLEX while being constantly exhausted. This life never included naps and rarely included down time. And the exact same was for Rob with being a full time athlete and student in college. We were busy. Just like everyone else. And it was a great life.
And now. Well as you can see it is different. Very different. Sometimes I feel guilty, sometimes I feel too lazy. But even though we do not have lots to do, we still try to be productive by working out, spending time with God and the word, cooking dinner, ect. We try to not "lazy" the day away:)
Something I will always remember is some great advice we received before we left...Enjoy it. Enjoy this downtime. Enjoy.
We went on to talk about how one day we will move back to the states and have "normal" lives again. One day we will both have full time jobs, one day we will have babies, one day we will have teenagers, one day we will have lots going on. And there will be no naps, no spending almost every hour of the day together, no sleeping in. And those will be great days, I can't wait for those days to have a family and crazy life. But for right now I will enjoy this "unusual" life. Because I know I will miss it. I will soak up the time I get to spend with my husband. I will soak up how rested I am, one that I rarely experienced during school and working nights and one I know I will rarely experience again when we start a family one day.
We understand what an unusual life this is. And we will take the advice and enjoy, we will embrace it!
And now a few every day pictures to help explain this "important" life we live:) You have seen plenty of our exploring, pretty pictures so now a few "every day" phone pictures...
