Western Circle

Well we did it! we got ourselves a place in TX. and boy is it great!!! No longer do we have to be stuck in stupid ol apartments. We get a HOUSE! and one with a fenced in back yard no less! And this is a thing of beauty....I wish I would have taken pictures. We've got a 2 car garage....3 bedrooms and the neighborhood is WONDERFUL! EVERYTHING is a mile and a 1/2 away from our house. Library in one direction, bakery outlet in another, grocery store, CVS, Ward building, park, pool, and our bank. And this whole town looks nice. Even the not so wonderful parts of town looked ok. there was NOT a part of town that made you just cringe. I'll find a picture of the house on the internet and show it off if I can. So far the plan is to move in 3 weeks. and now we've got a place to show for it!!! It's a really lovely place and I can't wait to show it off.

Mostly I'm glad to be in a house and not have to share a yard or walls. And the whole town was really nice...it's not quite as big as Springfield MO but....well maybe they're right about the same size...somewhere around there anyway. HURRAY A HOME!!!!!

Suprise suprise....it's me and mike what did you expect?!?

Well well well....we have (of course) changed our minds again. L3 pushed back Mike's training date, and he wanted a little more time to study for some tests....so we're staying. Yep the third week in Jan is our "date." We're trying to figure out a way for me to go to TX...and let mike stay here, but we only have one car....and we'll both need it if thats what we do. But we're working out the kinks. Hopefully we can figure it out.

But yeah...just to let you know...we've changed our plans again. (pshaw...typical :D )

All I want for Christmas

Well I'm excited to spend Christmas with family! It will be wonderful to see everyone. Hopefully being with family will tone down the stress I'm feeling. Mine isn't a holiday stress, it's a housing stress. We still have yet to go to TX to look at houses. We're going out there, house or not, on the 31st of Dec. But I've decided that the best Christmas present for me, would be to know that we have a place to go once we reach TX. I know we'll find one eventually, but that still doesn't change me stressing about it. So Santa, if you're around....and happen to read blogs....this is what I want for Christmas, a home in Texas (Greenville).

Graduation Pics

Thanks Katie for taking pics!

Well thanks to our wonderful cousin Katie, we actually got pictures of Mike at his graduation. Here are just a few of my favs.

Thursday, December 4, 2008


Today was the day! Mike graduated! We just got back from the ceremony. It was really wonderful to see all his hard work pay off. My camera has no memory right now because my xd card is getting worked on by my ever so loving brother (THANKS!). ( I wish I could extract things out of my brain that I've "deleted" that would be nice. But at least we can extract stuff of of camera cards that we accidentally deleted.) Anyway so my cousin on Mike's side took pictures at graduation. When Katie sends them to me I'll post them. Make sure to tell mike congratz!

Thank you for everyone who came I know it was just for a short little ceremony but we were really glad to see everyone. And it was fun to get to know Katie a little bit while she was here! And thanks Dad Compton for giving up your time to come. We love you ALL!!
