"In the not too distant future..."

Sometimes, I amuse myself with the notion that I am a mature, responsible grown-up. It makes me feel better.

Then, I have moments where I know that this simply isn't true.

Take today, for instance. I had one minute little sliver of free time in my day - and what did I decide to do? I flipped through on-demand to discover that the Mystery Science Theater Movie was available on Cinemax's on-demand channel. And, much to my dismay, the movie was going to expire. I knew that I wouldn't get another opportunity. The movie isn't available on DVD (or it wasn't the last time I checked).

Well, what do you think I did?
I curled up on my sofa, closed my eyes, and realized that sometimes I just need to have an adolecent moment. Oh, let's be honest - I tend to have adolecent moments often. Despite my grown-upness, there are times when I feel about 15 years old.
So, I hopped into my time machine, re-lived my 1996-ish life, and laughed like I had never seen the movie before. I laughed even harder when I remembered that I subjected my poor cousins to hours and hours of Mystery Science Theater love.

Even still - guess what? It was still pretty darn funny, even after all of these years.

..so much for growing up...

Good News!

After months of prayer and searching, Jeremy has found a job close to home - at my school!

We are so excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It will be strange, having my husband home at 4:10 most days out of the week. It will be strange to eat lunch with him on pre-planning and post-planning days. It will be slightly odd to think that if I need that dollar, I can run down to the next wing and hit him up for money. (Haha!)

Oh, I loooooooooove this new strangeness. I can't wait to get to see more of my wonderful, hard-working husband!!

Jeremy's new job and our economic stimulus money made for one amazing day yesterday.

We are so thankful to God for these blessings. We deserve none of them, but accept them and give Him the praise.
