sorry it’s been awhile since I’ve updated. With a little nudge from a friend I am finally getting a minute to sit down…or so I think…I started typing the first line 5 minutes ago. Things in the bookstore have been more than hectic lately with the start of Summer Session I. Professors have messed up orders and we have had to fix them. Students want everything at their fingertips now! Donnie won’t give us any Summer help like he has previous Summers. So, we went from 16 student workers down to 2. One can only work 830-10am (the slowest time) and the other can only work 12-2. So we have had to answer the phones, run back and forth to the front and do our own jobs along with ship an average of 100 packages a day.

Enough about that…what I”m really writing about is exciting…at least for Justin and I. We are looking for a new place to call home (after September 25th that is hehe). There is one house close to our friends’ Meagan and Brandon that really just needs some love and ….paint. it is covered by overgrown bushes and trees and really doesn’t look all that appealing on the outside. We were able to go see it earlier this week on the inside and wow…what a hidden treasure. Yes, it will need some wall paper taken down and some cleaning but it is huge and a little old but comes with a nice newer stove, microwave, and dishwasher. One of the first things I saw was the window seat in the living room. I’ve always wanted one. It really just felt like home walking in it. It has a big basement that will be Justin’s playpen and plenty of storage. We have tried to look at other houses and it seems like we’ve been to all of them. None of the others give us the feeling of “home”. Pray for us and please feel free to share your opinions and advice.
