Hi family (and the occasional friend who is bored enough to read this)! I was thinking about how I wish I had the time to email everyone and send updates and get updates back, but since there are so many people and soon there will be so little time, I thought a blog would be a good idea for those who care about what’s going on in our lives down here in Knoxville!
I hope all is well with everyone! Eric and I are enjoying our time settling into our new apartment in Knoxville and being married. I’m sure you all know that Eric gave in and went with me to get a kitten a week after we moved in. Her name is Guenhwyvar (pronounced Gwen-i-var) and she is a precious little barn kitty who has kept us surprisingly entertained! She does the goofiest things and we laugh at her a lot.
Eric is still working at a Tax firm (is that what you call it?) and I recently found out that I will be employed at the beginning of next week at a daycare facility called “Kids ‘N’ Stuff”. Yeah, I don’t like the name either! BUT I am so grateful for this job and will start orientation next Tuesday at 10am and from there start out as a part time employee and hopefully transition quickly into full time. I plan to work for this daycare for a few months just while I get to know Knoxville a little better and then as soon as I finish my degree (I have one more class online to take) I will start substituting in Knox County Public Schools and hope to find a full time job in the school system!
Eric and I are getting anxious to visit home in a couple of weeks. We’ll get to spend time with family and go to the wedding of my best friend’s sister! We’re so excited to spend time with everyone whom we miss and I’m excited to meet Lauren (Benner) Shifflett’s new baby girl, Evalee Marie!
Well, this week has gone by quickly. Eric and I usually go to the gym after he gets home from work but today we’re going to check out a park that we’ve never been to, so that’s a treat to me. Hope the rest of the week goes well for everyone and the weekend comes quickly!! 🙂
