Looking to the Future

Papers are in, one final was taken, and I only have one final left. It feels so good to be at this point every semester. All that procrastination for two weeks. It’s worth it, I enjoy where I am, and my classes are excellent.

I am also almost all done in regards to my MA in Counseling degree. I, or we (since Monica has experienced as much as the stress as I have), started in August of 2004, and I will turn in my final papers for my final classes in August of this year. Three years almost exactly! It will be such a relief for both of us, and we will then start a new chapter in our lives. On August 23, 2004, we went to On the Border for our anniversary, and we had no idea how we would survive this new life (we’d just been here 3 days). This August 23, 2007, we will be in Jamaica for our anniversary! Not a bad difference at all.

What will we do next? That is the question of the hour. Sorry, Casey and April, we are not having a baby right away (see comments 4 blogs ago); however, we do have plans for that in the future, but not soon at this point. We’re not moving, either. Three years ago, all we wanted to do was leave Memphis and shake the dust off our feet. Now, we can see ourselves being here for quite some time. Who knew? What we do know is this is a great place, and we love our friends, church, and we have good jobs.

Jobs? Yes, I have a job opportunity open to me right now, and I will start working this summer! Monica will continue to work hard at RemitDATA, but she won’t be the only source of income anymore. Apparently, though, just because I will work does not mean I can play more golf:( It means we can take care of the things we’ve been needing to do because we’ve refused to use credit cards, but after that I can play more golf and Monica can shop more. Anyway, we’re going to be here for a while. That’s still strange to say, but we’re getting used to it. I feel like we should plant a tree in the yard or something. As one friend might say, we’re getting more domestic (but not in Edmond, ha!).
