finally, a post!

Whew! It's been somewhat of a whirlwind the last couple of weeks moving back to Ohio, unpacking and doing my best to 'nest', :) and catching up with friends. Chris is on the brink of a job, and I'm starting to babysit my cousins part-time next week. It's all so exciting. 
I'm not completely finished with the new place, but here's a few pics of completed areas :)

New little desk and chair set (thanks mom!) from an Amish farm!
Dining area

Exciting stuff, eh? 
Now for the more serious stuff....Chris and I have recently been offered a pretty exciting opportunity, one which would grow us and challenge us in ways we might not even realize right now. It is a tremendous ministry opportunity, which may seem to make it an easy decision, but we don't want to go anywhere God isn't calling us. So if anyone who reads this wouldn't mind offering up a quick prayer, that'd be wonderful. Hopefully I'll be able to provide better updates in the near future.  (Job=internet in the apartment) *grin*


a new home

Moving always sucks. It’s stressful and crazy busy, and it always seems that something has to go wrong. None of this was any different for our move this past weekend. But we made it! It’s all in the past, and we’re in the process of settling into our new home in Ohio. Yah! I’ve already noticed how much cooler it is, especially in the morning. I forgot how in high school, I’d leave in the morning needing a jacket, but walk home in the afternoon stripped as much as I could modestly be. But, sacrifices, right?

I need a planner. In Nashville, we didn’t socialize much. Nothing was really on our schedule but an occasional doctor appointment or euchre night with Jimmy and Lisa. But being back in Ohio, our schedule is already filling, and fast! I need to go buy a planner! Woo hoo! J And wouldn’t you figure, I saw one at Starbucks yesterday for September 2009- December 2010. Perfect, right?
