It feels like a lot has happened since I wrote about Cole getting his job. Cole worked at my hospital this summer, so we got to have lunch together everyday! Which is something I've already begun to miss.
We started the process of looking for a house in early June. We didn't really expect to find one, but we found the house we fell in love with at the end of July. Pretty quickly actually! We put in an offer and had a couple counter offers back and forth with the seller. But we had an accepted offer and then we signed our names about 5 million times when we signed our lives away- weirdly, we weren't nervous at all...just SO excited!! In the process, the sellers were painting and putting in new carpet throughout the main floor. We decided we wanted to upgrade the carpet pad and carpet which was an fantastic plan- so worth it! It's a much bigger house than our one bedroom we were renting. We have three bedrooms upstairs, 1.5 bathrooms, a kitchen, laundry room, and living room. Downstairs needs some updating- I'm not really into keeping the orange shag carpet and wood paneling in the two bedrooms, and Cole has big plans for a theater room downstairs. We'll see when we have time to start on that but we have a big back yard and a deck, so as I see it, I better be getting a puppy!
And we're loving our new ward. It's a really big ward with a lot of young couples and young families. The nursery, they've said has 121 kids! Cole and I have new callings as team teachers in the primary. We're really excited- I'm so ready for the husband of mine to be home every Wednesday night and not going on camping trips and crap with the young men- and I'm just so thrilled to not be teaching Sunday school to teenagers anymore who you can't get off their cellphones. Primary kids respond to candy. I'm all about kids answering my questions after I throw them a tootsie roll!
We finally hired another full time ultrasound tech, so I finally get to go down to being part time. It was pretty exhausting consistently working way more than 40 hours a week, I pretty much neglected grocery shopping for as long as I can remember. Whoops!
Cole has started teaching so I guess that means summer is officially over. He's pretty excited and seems to be really loving the subjects he's teaching. He's also on jury duty for 3 months (which is frankly ridiculous) so he has to call in every Friday night to see if he'll have to go in the next week....He's not really loving that. But he's off to Utah tonight with his friends to go golfing and go to the BYU-Texas football game tomorrow night. I on the other hand am sitting at home watching my newest guilty pleasure show- I may or may not have ordered the first season of The Mindy Project and watched it beginning to end once already. It's seriously my favorite- I LOVE it.
That's about all for now.
