We've been moved into the new house for a month now. It's starting to look a little more like home, though my decorating skills are seriously lacking. We could use a few pictures on the walls and such. But we'll get there. After we hit the lotto. Adjusting to the new home was a little tougher than expected. I didn't realize how sad I'd be to leave our apartment (our first place together - sniff) and it took a while for the house to feel completely comfortable. I don't think we're quite there yet. But it's feeling more like home every day, and we've adjusted to sleeping there. That took a little while. I think we'll both be happy once we finish the last of the painting! Two more rooms to go...
I think everyone has heard this news, but in case you missed it - I'm going back to school this fall! Jamie and I have been discussing it for a while, and I've finally decided to go for it. So next month I start online classes with Liberty University to earn my Master's of Education in School Counseling. As my mom pointed out, I'll be starting at the same time as Rebecca and finished way before her! Hopefully I'll be done my December 2009, spring of 2010 by the latest. My hope is to become a counselor in a middle school once I'm finished, though I'd be perfectly content with a position in an elementary or high school at first. I'm excited and nervous - more for the job hunt part than the school part. I'm eager to start doing a job I care about and feel invested in. Most of the school work will be reading, online testing/quizzing and discussion boards. I'm sure I'll be spending a lot on books, but a class based almost completely on reading is right up my ally :) My first class - foundations of education something or other - starts September 15th. Jamie's really looking forward to becoming the cook and housekeeper for a year or so while I devote my attention to school work!
Sorry...no pictures this time!
