Hi guys, I hope you're all doing well and enjoying the lovely changes in our Alabama weather here lately. Since coming home from Ireland I hate Alabama summer weather more than any other--I'd rather stand in cold rain than in the sun and humidity of an August morning in Birmingham.
And now on to more interesting things than weather. First of all, I have a job! It isn't my dream job, but it's related to my field and it's full time. I am a teaching assistant at Covenant Classical School in the two-year-old class. We have NINETEEN kids: Makenzye, Price, Landon, Neel, Chloe, Harris, Anna Lilia, Rhys, Taylor, Gabe, Kinzey, Laylan, Hudson, Kyra, Connor, Lorelei, Cal, Olivia, and Cole. Every single one makes me laugh, roll my eyes, and question my sanity each and every day, and I'm so happy to have the opportunity to work with them.
The other assistant teacher, Stephanie, and lead teacher, Charla, are awesome people to work with every day, too. They make me laugh more than the kids do, and we have so much fun organizing the room, planning lessons, ranting about the kids, and making fun of each other. Stephanie is about 5 years older than me and a mother of two, and Charla is more like 20 years older than me, so we're an interesting crew. I'm totally exhausted when I get home, but it's so much better to be tired from work rather than tired from stress about not working.
On the wedding front, I have now gotten us a photographer, florist, preacher, invitations, and rings. We are down to 67 days. It's time to start addressing invitations and getting my dress altered. It's time to start combining finances, working out living arrangements, finding furniture, and planning for a move. I'm also trying to get used to having almost no free time, whereas before I had almost nothing BUT free time. It's different, but good different.
That's all for now, because I am so tired that I usually go to bed around 9:30 during the week now. So goodnight.
