So here we are...

It's the end of August already. Are you fucking kidding me? Where on earth did this summer go? I guess this was a more eventful summer than usual, what with the wedding and all, but damn.

On the upside, we head up to Huron for a much needed 3 day stay at Steve's aunt's cabin on Lake Erie with the gang. Since I already had Friday off (yay for 4 day work weeks), and the clinic is closed for Labor Day next Monday, taking Weds and Thurs off means that I have a 6 day vacation! Wheeee!!!!

Plus, the first OSU football game is next weekend, which is always fun. We may or may not be able to get our hands on tickets, but if we don't we'll still have to find somewhere to watch the game. Stupid Big Ten Network. We do have tickets to the OSU v. OU game Sept. 6th, as does my sister Alli (yay for alumni lott.ery working out in our favor!). It'll be her first football game, and she's really pumped. Of course, so are we.

My very good friend's wedding was this weekend, in Dayton. I have been looking forward to this forever, as she's my only Hindu friend and therefore this was going to likely be Jason and I's only opportunity to go to a Hindu wedding.

And THEN Jason gets a cold. Specifically, the cold I had a week ago, but he was just a little sicker than I was. Really, just a little. Or maybe he's more of a wuss, I don't know. Either way, after much fighting yesterday and much crying on my part, we compromised. We went to the ceremony, and not the reception. I am still mildly salty about this, but what can you do? The ceremony was amazingly beautiful, though. SO cool.

Gah. A month ago we were still on our honeymoon, living it up in Yellowstone. Boo. I want to be back on vacation :(

Writing eighty bajillion thank you notes for said presents=bad. Real bad.

It's been a while...

And I've been lazy. So yeah, in short...

Wedding=AWESOME. Despite the godawful heat, it was an amazing day and night. I'll post some pics when I get around to it.

Yellowstone (aka honeymoon)=F'ING AWESOME! Seriously, you must go. SO beautiful. Again, will post of these days.

House=Still looking. We had two look promising last weekend, but one ended up with a raging mold problem and the other went into contract just before we put in our offer. So, the search continues on....

Work=same old, same old. I got word this week that I will, in fact, be contracted out to the same district I was last year. Even though I swore I wasn't going to. At least I'm starting out at the beginning of the year, and not six weeks in the hole. With the elementary buildings consolidated, it should be a lot easier. Once I unpack the speech room, that is. Bah. If anyone wants to cruise out to Licking County with me to unpack, I will love you forever.

Life in general=pretty good. We're getting settled into this whole "married" far, it's a lot like living together, which we've done for the last two years now. Only, my last name is different, we have new stuff (most of which we don't have room for), and we now have a joint checking account (in addition to our own separate accounts). My sisters are good, Mom and Dad are good, and the dogs are good. Yes, they got another one. She's a year old golden retriever and her name is Molly (aka Mollywollymoose, after the drinking game. That, and because she tips the scales at just over 70 lbs...and she's not done growing yet). She and Max adore each other...when they're not trying to take each other's toys away, that is.

Less than a month until we go up to Lake Erie with the gang...yay! Also...less than a month 'til football season kicks off-yeeha! Go Bucks!
