We left my inlaw's house on NYE and as we were getting into the Jeep we got to catch fireworks exploding a few blocks away. It was pretty super (and also pretty cold).

I've been working at Barnes&Noble as a "seasonal worker" - didn't have the 90-days-of-training that almost everyone else had, but I've done all right so far. We shall see if I am asked to stay on . . . I like working there, but it's hard to pay bills on only $7.50/hr.
Waiting for Grand Canyon to find me a placement - finally heard from someone today that all three of the schools I'd put on my application didn't have space.... so I took initiative and gave the guy who is supposed to be helping me get placed no less than 25 schools to call for me.
we shall see.
D and I have been scheming how we can get out of debt and move forward in our goal: alaska, airplanes, 6 kids, etc...

This year I hope to write more... Last year (11/2012) I attempted NaNoWriMo.... Made it to about the halfway point, but Thanksgiving / social activities got in the way, and I discovered it's incredibly hard to write when we don't have our own place... because inlaws just so happen to be very loud. :p (sometimes loud is fun, but when trying to write or study, it's very distracting. . . at least, it is for me.)
I can't promise I'll write every day, or even every week.

I'll shoot for quality, too. I might post about something controversial, or simply share a recipe that my family enjoyed.

I might post a picture on occasion,
or something encouraging.
I might review a book, or a hotel, or an interesting landmark.

My blog isn't really thematical, but it is me. Coined words, silly phrases, and lots of creativity. A little bit of love for everything God made, and a lot of love for the Creator.
Stay tuned - this could be (more) fun!
