Good/God things are happening:

- I've been at my job for 10 official work days.
- Volunteers came and painted at our house yesterday...goodbye aqua stairs!
- I found a church I enjoy
- I've met people at church and played dutch bingo...of course they're either from or know people from NW Iowa!
- All of my stuff is finally unpacked and "in its place" in my bedroom. I'm really happy with how my desk looks.

Now all we need is internet at our place and we'll be golden. They say it will probably be another 2-3 weeks. Sigh. It will be worth all the money we save, though.

God is good. Good is God.

i live in the midwest....

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Midland

"You have a Midland accent" is just another way of saying "you don't have an accent." You probably are from the Midland (Pennsylvania, southern Ohio, southern Indiana, southern Illinois, and Missouri) but then for all we know you could be from Florida or Charleston or one of those big southern cities like Atlanta or Dallas. You have a good voice for TV and radio.

....por fin.

Well folks, this is the blog post you've all been waiting for:

I have a job!

I was called in for an interview today with an office that does MRI Imaging - I faxed them my resume almost a month ago, so I had actually forgotten about them... Anyway, the interview was this afternoon and after a long and somewhat random interview, I was offered the job, full time, in the wage range I was looking for!

So, I'll be the assistant (mostly administrative?) to the owner of the office, starting tomorrow morning at 10am! I'm sure I'll have more details later, but for now I'm just super excited to finally have employment!

A change to my post...

Here is my bedroom...
I'm currently spending plenty of time in coffee shops, trying to get internet access and look for jobs. The church job didn't pan out, they chose someone else... so now I'm applying for temp jobs and coffee jobs and hoping that something will turn up. Life marches on, my friends.
