When did this happen?

I know my posts recently have been short and some have even been cryptic. I am sorry. I have something that I have been blogging about privately, and I will be sharing all of that soon enough – but right now I can only go day by day.

Tomorrow I am being initiated in to Omicron Delta Kappa. It’s a National Leadership Honor Society. That should be exciting. I will (hopefully) get to wear the stole and cords at graduation! I know it seems silly, but that was something I didn’t get to do in high school. But I have worked my butt of the last few years, and my grades have been excellent!

B-man and I went home for Thanksgiving. We got to spend some nice time with  my family for Thanksgiving. On Friday we went apartment hunting and I think we found a place. It is pretty nice, new, has a 24-hour fitness center, and we can afford the 2 bdrm w/ den – so practically 3 bedrooms. The rooms are small, but that’s apartment living for you. It also comes with washer/dryer in unit, and a dishwasher. If we don’t find any place better than this we will probably go for it.

On Saturday we went up to celebrate B-man’s brother’s birthday. He turned 40 and the party was a hoot! We made him an “old man kit” with prunes, a cane, and Worther’s original hard candies. The box it all came in was the real present – as we figured he could use it for geo-caching.

Sunday I went to church with my family and met up with a potential employer. We chatted for a little while, and it looks like I have a job all lined up for after we’ve moved! I’m half nervous, and half excited about it. I know the company does a lot of college classes and k-12 classes too, both of which I feel relatively comfortable interpreting. I’ll keep everyone posted!

After church we drove back to Tennessee. I drove for about 2 hours, but I was so tired, so B-man took over the driving. The normal 7.5 hour drive ended up being a little over 10 hours – and he did most of it. I am so thankful, because it gave me a chance to relax, and to sleep.

So I need every one’s help:  how should I decorate my cap for graduation? Please, leave me a comment with suggestions!

Continue the fun!

  1. I'm so sorry to hear things are rough right now. Hang in there.

    And CONGRATS on the honor society! That's really exciting.

    Ditto for the apartment – it sounds like it's fully loaded, and if it's affordable that's awesome!

  2. Yay for apartment hunting and finding one with a washer and drier!!! That right there can keep a marriage very happy. haha

    And congrats on the potential job. How exciting.

    as for your cap….I am not good with that stuff. I'd pick something like, please send money or something funny.

  3. For your cap, definitely go big and simple. Remember you're going to be one of many and that not everyone will see your cap close up. Pick a simple shape to do really big – like a single star in an awesome print so it will stand out.

    Apartment hunting is a nightmare – especially in VA. I just found my perfect place and it took months and months. I wish you the best of luck!

    1. I hadn't even considered doing a star!!!!!! Lol, I'm so silly. What a great idea! I think I'll do a big glittery star!

      I mailed the books! You should get them soon! 🙂
