Last time, it was such an addictive way to get my words out and I stopped actually talking to people. I suppose we'll have to see what happens.
A lot has happened in the last year or two. I finished college. Moved away from Greenville and back in with my mother for a few months. I got a terrible job working for a mortgage company. When Michael came back from Iraq I flew to Wisconsin and picked him up and we took a cross country trip to move back here. We stayed at Notre Dame and in Chicago and walked the pier and saw the smallest church in the United States and it was wonderful. When we got back we stayed with my mom for a bit and found an apartment here in Foxboro. We both got jobs working at Bank of America, right down the street from my old high school.
We were engaged last August on our anniversary in Hemenways restaurant and since then I've been planning this huge event. I took the teaching tests in MA and got certified here and started subbing last November. In February I started to teach at Qualters Middle School. They gave me a long term subbing position for 6th grade ELA. When the the teacher came back, I just became a building sub and last Friday they hired me on for next year, full time as a 6th grade ELA teacher. Dream come true.
I've made a few new friends and the wedding is a bit more than three months away. I'm thrilled about my new job and totally stressed about the wedding planning. It's fun, sure but the money is a lot to worry and think about.
Life is beautiful. I love my life. And now I have to go buy underclothing for my first fitting:) yay. Oh yea, my dress is more than anything I ever imagined or designed in my head.
So that's my very brief synopsis. One of these days I'll come back and write in more detail about some of those stories. Because they're so much richer than I can write now.
