Man...I hope Vincent won't kill me...

...for telling this story....
Caught on Camera

...but here is goes.

So, I'm a pretty lucky woman in that I am married to a man with no snoring problems. Maybe once in a blue moon I'll hear light snores, but never a big deal. I've probably been disturbed by Vincent's snoring once or twice since we've been married.

However, several nights ago, as I'm about to fall asleep Vincent fell asleep first and just went into a snoring frenzy. A little annoyed and a little humored I tried my best to ignore it...Then all the sudden he snorts twice, REALLY LOUD. Vincent snored so loud that he woke himself up and looked at me and asks, "What did you say babes?"

I laughed...maybe you had to be there...

I feel like every year around this time my life is going all different directions. There has been so many changes and adjustments that I have lacked in the friend department by not updating my friends and family in whats going real quickly in the last few minutes of my lunch break:

Update 1: I have a new job. I've have been at Tandus as a Studio Assistant for exactly a month now and I finally feel like I can formally announce that I have a new job. It's a huge adjustment from social work to designing carpet and working with color all day. In a nutshell: I love it! I miss my kids but this is a new challenge God has put before me and I'm soaking it up. I'm learning from the best of the best in textile and carpet design.

Update 2: (Sorta goes with the first update)

I no longer have a work cell phone (which is AWESOME!!!). If you ever have a 24-7 work phone attached to you - you can agree to how liberating it is to get rid of it. For those who don't know: it may not seem like a big deal, but believe me, it is. It took me a week to get used to not checking to see if I had it. After I got rid of it, I heard a similar ring tone from another heart started beating real fast.

Furthermore, I really can't have my cell around on me at work - so, really I went to having two pretty much not having any during the work day. I love it...but I am sorry to my friend who have tried to get a hold of me. I guess that is what my update 2 is about: my phone access is limited. (Well, so is my e-mail access. I can only check my personal e-mails every so often...the company docs us for too much web surfing...and g-mail counts as web surfing.)

Update 3: I now wake up at 6:30 those who know me, this is unbelievable.

Update 4: Bigger then the updates mentioned above: Vincent and I have been married for two years now!!!

Update 5: We've been married two years; moved twice and about to move for the third time. Yes, we are moving again. First year, we lived in a one bedroom apt. Second year, we moved into a two bedroom house. As we go into our third year of marriage, we are moving into a three bedroom house. Lovin' it. We will be painting, packing and moving this weekend. Please keep us in your prayers.

Update 6: My parents are coming to visit for the first time since we have been married. I guess this is not an update, but just 'news'...

Update 7: Vincent is back in school (part-time) and working towards getting certified to teach. Please pray for him as he takes care of me (cooks and cleans), works part-time, student teaches once a week and goes to class. Pray that it is God's will to open doors for him to start teaching in January.

Okay - I think that is it for updates...
