I think I have sat down to write this post about a dozen times.  Every time I do, I get distracted and
don't finish.  Hopefully this time I will finish :)

Where has time gone?  I can't believe that we are already a full week into March, but I'm not complaining.  Today it was in the upper 60s and sunny!  It was a beautiful day!  I wish we had days like this a little more often.

February was good too us; we can't complain.  We found out that Josh passed boards!  We were both super excited.  One step closer to graduation!  In celebration of passing, we went out to dinner at a delicious Mexican restaurant.  And I made Josh this...
He has been begging me for months to make him a chain count down to graduation.  On the day that we found out he passed, we had about 100 days to go.  We now only have about 73.  These fours years have thankfully flown by!  We are now just waiting to find out where we are going for residency or if we will end up staying in Cleveland for another 3 years.  The anticipation of where we will go is killing us.  We feel like our lives are completely on hold.  We would like to make a few plans but just can't.  We hopefully find out in 5-6 weeks.

In February, our friends, the Waters, came into town for the weekend to visit us!  It was so much fun!  We miss them like crazy.  We had a great weekend that went by too fast.  On Saturday, we went tobogganing at the metroparks here in Cleveland.  It was way fun.  We had a great time.

That night, Valerie and I made it just like old times and went to the movies to watch a chick flick.  We ended up watching "The Vow."  We both enjoyed it.  We had a great weekend!  Thank you, Waters family for coming!  We miss you guys!

Josh is pretty much done with all things school related until graduation.  He's had nothing to do for the last few weeks.  In the coming weeks, he only has to go to the school like 1-2 days a week!  So, he has found himself a temporary job cleaning out a warehouse.  He comes home covered in dust!  But he seems to enjoy working and actually getting paid.  :)  Between this job and his church calling, he is keeping himself pretty busy.

Not a whole lot is new with me.  Just working and working and working.  That seems to be the story of my life.  Overtime has started back up this week.  It will be nice to have that extra money again but it's getting tiring already.  My allergies are driving me nuts!  All this hot cold weather stuff is killing me.  I have been running some these last few weeks when it's been warm enough to do so and I've really enjoyed it.  I just love being outside for a little while and getting some fresh air.

And that's pretty much us at this time.  Hopefully these next few weeks will FLY by so we can find out where we will be living for the next 3 years.


  1. Enjoy the ride if you can, the anticipation and the excitement...all worth it! I hope your next move brings you closer to me!

  2. For some reason that chain looks familiar! I love the pic with Val and her girls! I wish we would have been here for that adventure.

  3. My allergies are driving me crazy too. It makes me want to cut my nose off. I hope you find out where you're going soon!
