A new year...

Today is the first day of my twenty-sixth year of my life. It has been a pretty great day all in all. My sweet husband surprised me with a sleek, silver ipod nano and a new book. He even baked me a birthday cake. It was delicious. We also went out for a Mexican dinner at my new favorite restaurant Ninfas with some friends. I got several voice mails with birthday songs and greetings and a few great gifts from the parents. Fun, fun, fun. Excited about what the 26th year of life holds for me. I feel so blessed already.

Well, I FINALLY got a job. Before you get all excited for me, which I appreciate by the way, it's not my ideal job. It's a sales job at Oak Express on Furniture Row. They didn't hire me because of my experience or my degree, I got the job because of my personality. Which is not altogether a bad thing, but it did hit me a little in the ego department. The job is CRAZY! I work from open to close 9 to 9 about four days a week. Then I get two and a half to three days off during the week. I must work every weekend and most holidays. The pay is entirely based off commission. So, while it is a little scary and frustrating in many ways, it is a job. I am trying to look on the positive side, like a discount on the fabulous furniture there, or having fun meeting new people.
In other news... Chris and I are having dinner with a pastor here in Waco and his pregnant wife about Chris possibly pastoring a small, local church here. Pray for us. I'm not sure how much more change I can take!
We love Waco and are so happy to be here!
