We’re Staying.

Share

There.  We made a decision.  For the first time since we moved here almost four years ago, we know for sure what we’re doing. It’s been a very un-sure past four years.  Filled with potential job offers that never finalized and real job offers that fizzled out at the last minute.  I’ve searched for houses […]

The SMART Scholarship

Share

We received news while waiting to board the plane to Hawaii that Josh had been selected to receive the SMART scholarship. Now he just has to decide whether or not accepting it is in our family’s best interest. The fine print states that if he does not finish his degree, he has to pay them […]

To San Diego? Or Not To San Diego. That Is The Question.

Share

Before we left for Grandma’s for the holidays, Josh was offered a job in San Diego. Pros: – It sounds like an awesome job.  The guy said the retention rate is 99% and it’s a big company.  Josh’ll be able to move around within the company to work on pretty much whatever he wants, so […]

So We Heard Back About The QE (Big ol’ Test)…

Share

But not before they drug… dragged? it out for en-ti-re-ly too long. Josh got at least two emails explaining that there was some sort of difficulty with the grading, resulting in all kinds of delays. Suspenseful, right? I would never do that. Never advertise that we had QE results and then drag you all along […]

A Verse For August

Share

Isaiah 50:10 Who among you fears the Lord and obeys the word of his servant? Let him who walks in the dark, who has no light, trust in the name of the Lord and rely on his God. And an August update: Josh has a TA (a half-time teaching assistantship).  The QE is over.  It’ll […]

I Don’t Much Care For August.

Share

Yeah, it’s hot, and there’s the residual connotation from my school days that keeps me from loving this month, but that’s not really why it leaves such a bitter taste in my mouth these days. August is the month of the unknown. August is when we find out if Josh has a job. Every year. […]

And I Don’t Have to Make Another Cake ’til March

Share

Unless I make myself a cake. Which Olivia thinks I should. In the shape of a dog. But I won’t. So I’m done ’til March. Three birthdays within a month of each other. Granted, I didn’t have a make a cake for Levi’s, but having a newborn for the other two definitely made life more […]

Let Me Explain… And Here’s a Movie

Share

You may have noticed Meet-and-Greet wasn’t up on Monday.  Neither was I.  Starting around 7pm Sunday evening and finally ending 4am Monday morning, I couldn’t even keep water down.  I haven’t been sick that many times in my life, combined. So I spent most of Monday sleeping. My goal for today is eating.  I’ve lost […]

If You Would, Please

Please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, Lift my husband up in prayer? That would be great. Because, ::sigh:: it is that time of year again. The Qualifying Exam (QE) is among us. This Tuesday. And if you remember correctly, he didn’t […]

Happy Father’s Day! Wanna See What I Got Josh?

Share

In case you can’t read it, that says “My Daddy won’t let me fall.” Wish I could make these bigger for you guys… but I ran into some technical difficulties. And that’s the back. “My Daddy holds my hand.” And that’s the back, again. Oh, and would you please just try your hardest to ignore […]
