One week till school

One week from today School starts again. I am glad that I still have a week, as I am not ready for it to begin again, I want to be able to relax just a little longer before the crazy business starts. Today I recieved and email from the Financial Aid office stating that the changes that I made to my fafsa (being married and a much lower income) can not be accepted because once you file as a dependent you can't file as an independent in the same school year. This is quite disappointing as we were expecting to receive grants and some no interest loans.

Yesterday Don has his shoulder surgery and it went very well they were able to reattach the torn muscle with pins that will dissolve over time. I went with Tara to visit him in the hospital in Eau Claire last night and he seemed to be doing very well, they kept him overnight to make sure the pain was bearable and this morning he will talk with his doctor about what exercises he should be doing and then he should be home by 10am.

Today I was going to help Cassandra move but she found out that she doesn't have to be in till Sunday so she is going to wait till then. So today I will be instead working on wash dishes and hopefully getting a ton of wedding thank-you's done :D

Testing Testing.....

I have never been a steady journal keeper. I will go on writing sprees where i write every night for a month and then forget for the next 6 months to a year. I am hoping that this blog will not be like my journals. So bear with me if my posts become sporadic.

This past weekend Andy and I were able to travel the 300 miles to Milwaukee to see my Mother and siblings. We shared the cost of gas with my brother Jeremy and sister-in-law Kelsey as the four of us road together. It was so much fun to get some one-on-one time with Kelsey on the way back as we talked in the back seat of Andy's car.The weekend was a good break from trying to set up the house. We enjoyed swimming at a fun camp ground, having an intense prayer session, attending Mom's church and going out to eat at the Mongolian Grill.

Now it is Monday and a new week has started, Today I put my new bike together, made lunch, cleaned out a window and put up one of our new curtains. Now I plan to write thank-you's while watching a movie and then make supper and perhaps put up the rest of the curtains with Andy's help.
