Spring Break

We spent a night in Taos, New Mexico on Friday/Saturday. Joel has been couped up in our house for two weeks, and the doctors give him another week. We were so excited to get to go somewhere else for spring break, and as Joel said it "do nothing in a different location."

Joel got comments from other 20-somethings about his shades. "I love your sunglasses. They are so intense!" :)

Photos to come! Right now I need to go finish writing a paper for school.

I am having a productive morning!!! Yes!!! I love mornings like this. I already completed by next case study (it didn't take me an eighth as long to finish as my first one did) and prepared the cover page and started the references since I have to compile this one. Man, I feel like I'm on a role!

The house is rolling along too. Since Joel is working from home now, it feels like we are accomplishing so many things. We installed to door downstairs (the dear old puppy sheet finally came down at last), the basement bedroom now has floors. The trim is cut and painted, and waiting to be nailed down. The window box is nearly in... and we had potential renters come look at the house yesterday!!! They are friends from Campus Crusade, and Joel and I are loving the possibility of having this house be a ministry house! Yay!

It feels so good to see progress. I know that the day is coming when I'll be done with school and we'll be in another smaller, more manageable place-- hopefully one that we L O V E.

sugar fast day #4

today is day four of my sugar fast. i started on sunday, after I realized that my sugar addiction was really destructive. it's been super hard for me the past few days, but i've made it through!!! i hope that it'll give me more independence from relying on sweets to quell my moods. i do plan on eating cake and ice cream for my birthday on sunday, though!!!
