Life is pretty crazy sometimes. I turned 31 yesterday. I have never been a big birthday person, but for some reason this year feels different. I know I haven’t been updating as often as I have promised to, and for that I apologize. Let me fill you in…
I am rounding the corner and heading for home in regards to finishing my degree. I have about 4 months left. It will be a great personal accomplishment, especially since I started 13 years ago. I am still trying to figure out the specifics of starting my Master’s program, but I have a feeling that I will have to wait until next August to start that.
I was recently promoted at work. That is a big deal too. I don’t like to brag about money, but it was a good pay increase. The great part isn’t necessarily the raise, but the opportunity for days off. It looks like I will be able to stay on 3rd shift (which is beneficial for school) but I will have Friday morning through Sunday night off!
Michelle and I are doing a lot of traveling in the next few weeks (although unfortunately, none of if it is together). I am going to a conference near Chicago this week, she is going to a conference in Denver the following week, then she flies out for a trip to Ireland the week after that. The Ireland trip is important. It is kind of a graduation gift to herself, I guess. Something that she needs to do. I understand that, even if others seem confused by it.
I have some other stuff going on too…stuff that is really exciting and scary at the same time. I can’t say much about it yet, but when the time is right, you will be the first to know. Just pray that I hear and follow God’s lead for the time being.
Well, that’s it for this update. I am sure I will have some thoughts to post from the Chicago conference. I will hopefully get some pictures as well. |
