Happy Belated Easter! I hope you were able to spend it with family. We went to SC for a shower for my sister on Saturday and then were able to spend Easter day with my family. I don't think I've ever been so aware of Easter and the weight of this holiday. Tom is doing a great job of helping me put my trust and focus on Jesus.
I don't have a great transition for the next part. So here it goes:
Tom's statement last night pretty much sums up our life right now. He said, "I think I need some drugs to deal with reality."
We're not the drug taking type, and I don't predict we will be. So mothers and friends, do not worry. We will abstain from any drug usage.
But -- life is a little nuts. On the agenda for this week:
Monday - Tom has an RUF shrimp boil from about 1-9ish. Until 1, he has tons of calling and finagling to do. You see, when we go up to St. Lou this weekend, we'd like to leave a car there and perhaps fly back. We'd like to leave a car there so that Tom doesn't have to drive the huge U-Haul with a trailer on the back with a car attached to it. So we're trying to figure out if we can drive a car up, fly down, but then we're stuck as to how we'll get from an airport to Auburn. Or we're just going to drive up with 2 cars and come back in 1. Then we must also find a safe place for Tom's car.
I'll do my day job and teach little chillins. Considering that I'm still unemployed and have zero leads, I'm going to email a few schools to see if I can come by on Friday. I'll also start setting up appointments for us to view town-houses for next year. I think I'll also go to the shrimp boil since it's the last RUF hoorah.
Tuesday - Tom has a Bible study party at our place in the evening. I'll do the same as stated in Monday.
Wednesday - I'm going to Georgia with 200 12 year olds all day for a field trip to the Renaissance Festival. Tom has a sophomore dinner and then at 8 will have a 'good bye' dessert for the RUF seniors. I think I'm going to the dessert.
Thursday - We're leaving to visit our new hometown to find a place to live and to see if Tom qualifies for a full scholarship which we're still not sure about. As of today, April 25th, we have 1/2 of tuition covered and NO income. If Tom is gets this scholarship, it will cover FULL tuition; however, we'll still be in the same sticky situation of having NO income. We're unsure about the scholarship because of the extra stresses added with trying to finish in 3 years. Tom's friend said last night that everyone is stressed all the time, and the people on the scholarship are just extra-stressed. I know that the Lord is going to take care of us.
So this is our week at a glance; if I'm a splotchy blogger for the next 5 weeks or so, you have some idea as to why. We are also having a yard sale next weekend, my little sis is getting married in the middle of may (what-what), and then we'll visit the Hart family towards the end of May. Then we have one weekend here in ol' Auburn, and we're off to St. Lou. It's crazy to think about how quickly the time is going by.
I better go now. I still need to get ready for school, grade 100 projects and about 60 more essays.
