It's been awhile...

Since I posted and I figured *those of you who might actually read this* might be kind of curious as to how our new lives are going.

Well, I am still a stay at home mom because I just can't seem to catch a break on the job front. Joe still works 5 days a week & most of the time, hasn't been getting home till late in the evening.

I've almost got my apartment put together. We still need to put up Claire's bed and our bed as well. Sharing a bedroom between all 3 of us is not easy. Claire wakes up through the night several times and ends up in our bed the majority of the time. One morning, we woke up and she was right in between us. We have no recollection of how she got there.

Yesterday, We went to church for the first time as a family in a few months. It was really nice. The church is predominately foreign people but it is a good reminder to be that we are foriegners on this earth. I know thats a Scripture reference but I just can't remember where. So funny but embarrassing story...I wore a dress to church (for the first time in a long time), every time I would bend, my bra would hang out!! I didn't know the dress was down so low in the back! After the main service was over,  my mother in law caught me in the bathroom and told me about the peepshow I was giving everyone.Thankfully, she fixed it for me.

The guys at the church were doing free oil changes. So we got our oil changed for free!!! We also got our break lights fixed and the hatch on the back of our SUV fixed. When you wanted to put something in the back, you had to get it in through the back seat..well, no more of that! We still plan to sell it because it just takes up too much gas, especially since we are a 1 income family for now.

Joe is doing excellent at his new job at TechMaster. He's been told he's been the fastest new learner. He's possibly up for a position to go to Antartica with TechMaster actually. He will be gone for 3 months...I don't know how to feel about this. While I am very proud of him for his accomplishments, I don't want to be apart again for that long!

Trusting God has a plan for me here has been hard in the midst of my homesickness for the mid-west but after talking with Joe about it I feel better, I'm supernaturally having an easier time trusting God that he has a plan for us here. I can't find a job so thats frustrating and makes my trust wane a bit but I'm still overall having a good feeling about this move.
