We are finally moved into our new house. We are more than blessed to have such great friends who came to help us move. No joke, we had everything loaded in the UHaul in 45 minutes. To be honest I think it took about the same amount of time to get everything off of the truck as well. Granted we don't really have that much stuff, however it felt like a lot. Brian's parents stayed the night along with his sister to help us unpack and get our house organized better. That was a blessing as well. We had everything but one box for the bathroom done by Sunday and we moved on Saturday. The only reason we didn't get the one box done was because we don't have much bathroom space and needed to buy a self/cabinet for towels. Now we have that.

We also went and got our dog on Sunday night. She is a boxer beagle mix and her name is Piper. She is so mellow and lazy. I am so glad. She is the best dog ever. I will post a picture when I get my stuff together for the computer and camera.

Life has seriously been a whirl wind. We have been so busy.

Work is still going well... I love my profession even though a lot of people don't understand it. I really feel like social work is the Lord's work. Extending a hand to those in need was the main message Jesus came to deliver (other than that whole son of God stuff).

We are also moving. We got a house in Williamsburg right in between Jellico and Williamsburg. It will cut out a lot of driving for the both of us and save some money. I am so excited to finally have a house and not an apt.

Also... I went to a birthing class last night for work. I work with a lot of pregnant women, so this was helpful. Anyway... it was quite an experience since I am not pregnant. Learning how to breath and push... interesting. Also yesterday I got to watch a C-section. THE BEST BIRTH CONTROL is watching someone give birth or have a C-section. WOW!!! I thought that I was really good with blood and guts since I worked in surgery and recovery for so long. Negative... I almost passed out, and this was the case when I watched my younger sister give birth over a year ago. I don't think that birthing and labor are so good for me. :O(
