Praying for Patience

Patience: noun; an ability or willingness to suppress restlessness or annoyance when confronted with delay

Patience is something that I have struggled with my whole life. I think I am a very patient person in my career, but in my day to day life not so much. I just wish I had a fast forward button now and then... nothing wrong with that, right? Anyways....

This is a weird time for George and seems our lives as newlyweds is sort of 'on hold' right now as George is studying for the BAR exam at the end of July, and I am trying to find a place for us to live in Nashville and finish up work in Knoxville... oh, and pack, of course. George takes the BAR July 28th and 29th, and we have to be out of our current home July 30th at noon! It should be interesting!

I so admire George's work ethic and actually amazes me. I listened in on one of his review lectures today for a minute, and I just about fell asleep. One word- torture! A few of the words I picked up on: proxy, speculation, defendant, transaction....blah, blah, blah! I do not know how he does it, but I am so proud of him for his drive to succeed. I find myself wanting to hang out, do things together, and just enjoy each other's company. I am doing my best to keep myself busy as to not distract him. So for now, I pray for patience to get us through these next couple of weeks.

As for me.... I think I have been on every rental website known to man at least 30 times in one day. I find myself obsessing over it... like waking up in the middle of the night just to get on my computer and see if anything new has been posted. Ugh, I am so over it. It has been a 'planners' worst nightmare! And planner I am! I like to know everything in advance. We are actually both very schedule oriented people. So, the fact that we do not know where we are going to live in just one short MONTH is pretty agonizing. It is hard, too, because I have such specific requests (granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, open floor plan, backyard, etc). I have to remind myself that this is not going to be our dream home.... just a rental until we learn where we want to buy. We are headed to Nashville Monday to check out some places... wish us luck! But for now, I will continue to pray for patience!

July 30th cannot come soon enough!

Father's Day

I am trying my best to keep up with all the important events, but I am not doing a very good job! Unfortunately, I spent Father's Day sleeping and preparing for my long night of work. However, I did think about my Dad, my Father-In-Law and of course the father of our future children, my husband. I just love calling George my husband. Anyways, George is going to be the most amazing father to our children one day.... but for now he is the amazing dad to this little guy....

Thank you Daddy for always taking me out and feeding me every day! I love hopping in bed with you at night and sleeping right in between you and Mommy. Love, Hank

Happy Father's Day to my husband, Dad, and George Sr. I am so thankful for each of you!

Practice makes Perfect

Practicing uploading pictures.... does everything have to be saved to your computer in order to post? Can I not just post something from a website? Hmmm......

Blog Help Needed

After stalking other blogs for quite some time, I felt that it was time to create one of my own. This is all new to me, so any advice would be greatly appreciated. It only took me two three hours to figure out just the background. I thought this would all be so easy for me, but apparently my computer skills are lacking. Please give me any tips… I have a new appreciation for all you bloggers out there with cute themes, pictures, etc. Until then, I will continue wasting away the hours trying to figure out this new world of blogging.
