Feels like Home

Indiana is definitely feeling like home for us. We are all settled in our home and getting involved in a lot of different things. I am now working at an amazing dental office here in town, and it has been such a blessing. I found out about this opening from our pastor at church and everything fell into place so quickly! The girls I work with are amazing and the Dentist is such a joy to work for. I work in two different offices, one here in Bloomington and one in a neighboring town. It's a lot slower paced than Dr. Couchman's office, but it's nice to be comfortable with procedures after such a short period of time.

Jason is now working at the Indiana University television station as well as going to school. He should be on our local station tonight for the first time! He has been a little nervous about doing this story, but I have faith that he will do an amazing job! He just needs to do well on a couple stories to get his confidence up. I have seen some of his stories on his computer and it seems to just come so natural to him. I don't know how he does it, but I am so proud of him!

Valerie (Boo Boo) and her dog, Buddy, came to visit us this weekend! It was so great seeing her before she makes her move to New Mexico! I love to see God working in her and Jesse's lives. They were given the opportunity to move closer to Val's family in California and she will be able to stay at home with their baby when he/she is born in February/March. Such a blessing for them!

Here are some pics from our wonderful weekend:

Misty and Buddy had such a great time together! Misty has missed playing with bigger dogs since we moved away from Colorado.

We saw The Help this weekend and it was way better then I expected! I loved everything about it and kinda wish I had read the book before I saw the movie, but it was still amazing.

I receive Military Spouse Magazine through the mail and this month's was all about how 9/11 and 10 years of war changed the lives of military spouses everywhere. There was an article called "Things I Know for Sure" written by the Air Force Spouse of the Year. She made some great points about how her life would be different if September 11th had never happened. She is getting ready for her husband's 5th deployment and can't help but wonder how much more she would see him if it was just another day. Some of her main points were:

1. Military friendships are very unique and special. Some of the greatest "girlfriend memories" will happen when husbands are deployed.

2. The anticipation of the deployment is just as hard (if not harder) than the deployment itself.

3. I have yet to find an adequate answer to the often-asked question "How do you do it?" The truth is... I don't know how I do it. But somehow, some way, I find a way to get through each and every deployment.

4. Other military spouses are the only ones who truly get it.

If you have a chance to buy or subscribe to the magazine (all my military spouse friends) I will highly recommend it! It always has great articles and real life stories from military families :)

Jason and I are finally going to get back into our workout/diet plan. It's been so nice eating whatever we want these past few months (especially after not eating before the wedding... due to stress). But that has all caught up with us and it's time to get back on track. Wish us luck!
