That is truly what I've been! I haven't wrote any letters, updated my blog.... done anything.

But I have been working to become less of a slacker. It has been quite a journey but I am almost a substitute teacher in the great state of Alabama.

Let me tell you I didn't think it would take this long. I had to get a TB test done, wait for my Social Security card to come because I left the original at home. And now wait for my fingerprints to come back okay and get my certificate number. This has been a 2 week wait in order to substitute teach. But the wait is almost over. Hopefully Thursday or Friday I will be able to sub my first class.

In other news, I survived my first Alabama tornado... it didn't get too close but we were in its path. Luckily it got too big to do damage to us. We had some pretty harsh winds and thunder and lightening. It shook my bedroom windows!

J and I also celebrated our 1 year anniversary! We got to celebrate it and our engagement with our favorite bottle of wine. His family doesn't really drink so they were calling us alcoholics, but it's okay. We were enjoying ourselves. We wrote the event on the cork to save and saved the bottle to flatten for a bar cutting board. There is a place in Tuscaloosa that flattens bottles that you bring in. I'm so excited.

We take kinda bad pictures with the front camera, but I don't really care. I just love getting to see him! He will come down again on the 26th! Just a few more days!

I will try to be more active on my blog! I don't want to just leave it hanging!

Have a fabulous day!
