I think life is about to finally pick up a little.
Joe and I are driving to Dothan Thursday, then down to mobile for a wedding. Only to turn around and drive back up to Wilmore. I got a call today from the seminary saying they wanted to interview me for a Major Events job I applied for. The interview was originally set up for Monday, but since Joe and I were going to be in Dothan I asked if we could do it another time. Haven't heard back yet, so I don't know if Joe and I are staying in Alabama or not.
Anyway. I am praying this job works out and I will be able to work on campus. That would be awesome because it is less than a mile away.
Joe is still looking for a job.
Until then, we will try to beat the golf game on the playstation. it is all we can do.

Joe and I have been on this kick of getting out of the house and playing disc golf. When we are done playing he likes to come in and leave his tennis shoes where they belong (in the closet). But... this poses a problem because it makes the closet smell like dirty gym shorts. He is so wonderful and I love that he puts things where they belong...I just need to find a better place for his shoes to belong.
Today we ate an early dinner of homemade pizza, then went out and played 9 holes of disc golf. When we were finished we ran a mile around the track. We were both very sweaty and stinky when we got back.
I enjoy running, playing disc golf, or playing racquetball with Him. He beats me in racquetball EVERY time, but we laugh the whole way through. We stay about tied in disc golf, but I choke a lot on the last hole. He is so encouraging when we play.
Joe just said "smelly kittens!" out of frustration that his internet isn't working right...now he's singing a country song.
We're about to play golf on the play station.
Pray we get jobs!

I think it has rained everyday since Joe and I have been here. what is the weather thinking?
We were going to go play disc golf today, but it doesn't look like that will happen anymore.
I'm still looking for jobs, but I think I'm about to switch over and start looking for jobs in areas that I don't want a job in. (i.e. Retail).
Our house is just about fully put together. we just have to hang a few more pictures and random things so our walls won't look so empty.
Our house feels empty all of the time. I guess I'm used to the madness at home with everyone over, or the madness of the dorms with girls running in and out and slamming doors all day. I don't know what to do with the silence. or with all the free time.

I take back what I said about just sitting around eating and watching movies. I have actually been very productive.
Joe and I unpacked at least 100 boxes in 4 days.
I have been actively searching for jobs between unpacking boxes.
I have made meals for my sweet husband everyday.
I have gone out and worked on decorating the home.
I exercised with Joe.
And lots of other stuff too.

Ok, I've been gone a while, but I am planning on getting back and updating this more often.
In the past two weeks I have gotten married, gone on a cruise, packed up a moving van, unpacked a moving van, and now am living happily with my husband.
Since we have been here in Wilmore we have worked very hard at getting unpacked, and were able to do so in less than 4 days. We've been looking for jobs and sitting around enjoying being married. Joe gets "cabin fever" and has to go outside every few hours, so we have started playing frisbee golf in the back yard. We have about 5 trees and a small barn in the back yard, so we make up courses to go in and play away.
I'm enjoying our house so much. it is a lot larger than I expected, and the decorating is beginning to come together. I really enjoy cooking for Joe too, I don't know when that will wear off, but I so love getting meals ready and eating and cleaning together.
He has exceeded my expectations that I had of him before we got married. He has always cared so much for me and helped me with whatever, or taken care of anything I need, but since we have gotten married, that has only increased. Some people said he wouldn't be like that, but he has. I kept him up all night two nights ago because I couldn't sleep. I heard a noise and it freaked me out, so he courageously got out of bed in the middle of the night to check on whatever it could be. I found out the next morning that it was my shoe rack in the closet that fell over. But all that night every time I sat up in bed or rolled over he asked if I was ok. His patience amazes me. I'm sure I have already driven him crazy a few times asking for things, but he smiles and does whatever I ask.
We've watched tons of movies since being here too. I think all we do is eat, watch movies, and build things.
I'm ready to get a job and stop sitting around so much though. I've applied to tons of different places, but haven't heard anything back yet. Joe will be starting classes in August, and then we both will be taking classes in September.
We are both earnestly seeking God for his will for us in ministry, school, marriage, and whatever else may come out way.
I haven't decided exactly what I'm going to get my masters in, but I have a semester or so to figure that out. For those of you who missed it, I got a good scholarship to Asbury, and am going in the fall.
I miss my family and friends, but wouldn't trade being here with Joe for anything.
