This weekend was so great, if for no other reason than that our family welcomed a new member into it.
Alexander James Majka was born on Friday, July 20th. Holding him, and watching Adam hold him let me know everything I needed to know about whether or not we’re going to have a child next year.
We definitely are going to try our best to do so. Seeing our beautiful nephew was inspiring, and let me know just how “worth it” it is to continue to remove the medicines that are helping me, so that I can bear children.
This weekend, Adam and I also spent a good amount of time alone at home. Adam cleaned up the study, got rid of a lot of boxes and put away many of our books. You can really tell a lot about each of us just by looking at the books we have.
One of the things that we did, on Adam’s suggestion, was to get new frames for my degrees. It’s kind of funny to me, seeing my high school, college, and law school degrees on the wall. I cried, thinking that they were worthless, until the Hollywood Reporter decided to come out with an article about the top 10 Entertainment Law Schools in the country, and Southwestern ranked #4 – just beneath Harvard.
I’m not sure how I’m going to use my education, but I know I will. Life works things out, and things happen for a reason, usually.
Today, I’m heading over to LA Fitness to see about a gym membership. I’ve been mean to my body with sedentary behavior for too long. Maybe they’ll even accept my silver sneakers gym benefit from Medicare. Here’s hoping!
I hope everyone has been doing well. Much love.
