Another Post...

So it's been a while since I've posted. Needless to say, life has just gotten more busy. In the last six months:

- I have completed another semester of school
- I found out I would have to take an additional semester (so Fall 2010 will be my last semester)
- We moved to a house
- I am still considered a temp employee, but as of September 1, I will go back to being a permanent employee (although only 75% time)
- I got another job as a respite provider
- We changed wards
- We had our first holiday in our home

So it doesn't sound like a lot, but trust me, it is!

Our new place is wonderful. It's a smaller, 3-bedroom home, and I love it! I keep thinking about the house we almost got, which was 3 times the size with 2 more bedrooms, and I can't imagine keeping up with that! But, with a new home comes some troubles. We moved in March, and since that time, we've replaced part of the fence, we were tented for termites, had wiring problems (phone and power), changed the roof... it's been a lot of work, and even though we've been there for almost 4 months, there are still plenty of boxes throughout. But, aside from a fish tank, our pets have all managed to make it to our home.

Another reason for my lack of posts is that I haven't really had my own space... until now. Before, I worked in a lunchroom. When we moved locations, I got to take whoever's desk was empty (the beauty of laptops and wireless networks!) Then I was squished into a corner desk thing with our other temp, only to find out that she would be given a cubicle. Wasn't fair, since I had seniority, and actually did research work that would need storage (she's an admin associate) but after some manoevering, it looks like I now have a cube! Eventually I will get a picture posted. Right now it's very Bohemian... because I don't have enough stuff to fill it yet.

Well, that is all for now. Hopefully it won't be 6 months until I post again.
