I have never been this happy before. (as a whole... haha)

I can't imagine what it will feel like to do what I love and get paid (I say that a lot but it's like 40 hours a week of volunteer work haha)

I come home and can talk to Jeremiah for hours about what excited me in my day (poor guy... i love him for always listening to it all). Last semester I really struggled with having joy and just finding things that really excited me. I had 8 classes, 30 hours of work a week, the ministry, and 2 hours of driving everyday. Getting up at 3 am and working and going to school until 5 really drained me. My voice teacher was really concerned about me because getting up before the sun and getting home as it went down can really mess a person up and suck the life out of you... I never admitted to her (or anyone) that I struggled with very rough feelings last semester because I felt like I had no time for me or my husband and that was hard the first semester of marriage.

Now I get to see Jeremiah in the mornings before I leave (we get up about the same time) and I get home before him. That is the biggest blessing. I can be there to greet him at the door when he comes home and have all evening to spend time with him or doing things we need to do. We are finally working out together. We got My Fitness Coach for Wii and it's a personalized work out video almost. It's honestly hte greatest thing ever. We are super sore haha (thats what I get for being out of shape). I have time for me. I have been doing my SOAPs everyday.

Just trying to rebuild myself physically, emotionally and spiritually.

My next goal:

To spend some time with my girl friends in Phoenix. Man I miss them. I haven't really seen anyone in months and it's rough. I went from living with all my best friends, to not seeing them for months... big change of pace. So I am going to try to reconnect with my girls this year :)

All in all life is good, our marriage is great and I love my classes I am teaching :) Can't complain one bit!
