More Comings and Goings in My Life

So, as usual, it's been quite a while since I last posted. Quite a bit has happened since then, but not much to write about. I am passed my half-way mark in law school, which means I have just over a year left to go before graduation. School has calmed down for me, since this semester I decided to only do 12 credits instead of 15. If I had decided to do 15 credits I would pretty much be forced to graduate early. I don't really have a reason to graduate early, so I just decided to take it easy this semester.

Kiley is still pregnant. She's now 25 weeks along. That means we have about 3 ½ months to go. I'm not sure I'm ready for it, but I'm going to have to be. We were a bit worried last week after Kiley went to the doctor, because they said that her blood pressure was incredibly high. High blood pressure during pregnancy can be a sign of toxemia. I won't explain what toxemia is, but it's a condition that's about as bad as it sounds. The doctor said that if she gets toxemia, they will be forced to deliver the baby early. So that's not a good thing. Anyway, Kiley got some blood tests done and they determined that she doesn't have toxemia, but she still has to go see a high risk OB from now on.

Other than that little problem, we also have the added stress of finding a new place to live. Our lease is up on March 31st, and we're currently living in a one bedroom apartment, so we have to move either way. My dad was actually looking into buying a house down here and we would just rent it from him. This was mostly for tax purposes, but it would work out nicely for us. However, with the housing market looking the way it does, we were cautioned not to buy in Las Vegas right now. Plus, I'm still looking for a summer job (more on that later) and we could possibly move after I graduate. So any house that my dad could buy would have to either appreciate in a year and a half, or at least keep from depreciating. So that was too risky for us. And now we're back to looking for a rental. Which sucks.

I was getting a bit worried about finding a job for this summer. Things are starting to actually look up for me. I got some interviews with several law firms here in Las Vegas. I got a call back to one of them, which is my first choice right now if I were to get an offer. I also have a law firm that is almost sure to offer me a job (I have some inside connections), but they probably don't pay as well as this other firm, so I've got a backup plan. It would be really nice to actually have a paying job. I've forgotten what it feels like to receive a paycheck. Plus, it would be a big relief to have an income since we don't know how much longer Kiley's going to keep working.

Anyway, I'll be posting again soon. Which means check back in about 3 months. That is all.
