repetition, welcome to our life =]

I feel as if our lives have been a little mundane lately. [As if having your new husband in a war zone could ever be considered 'mundane'!] I guess a more accurate sentence would be, I feel as if our lives haven't changed since my last post. [better? who knows!]

So on to the everyday happenings:
Brandon and his unit are still in preparations to come home. Brandon doesn't ever say the date that they are leaving Afghanistan, firstly because of safety and secondly apparently there is a curse if you speak the date... [curse meaning you get held there longer!] So as anxious as I am and as much as it's killing me NOT to know when he will finally be stateside, I will hold my feelings inside [for the most part] and not ask for the details. Brandon is still working on a regular basis, I can't wait to see some of his pictures and to meet some of his battle buddies that I hear about.

I am just truckin along with my school work. I only have 3 more weeks sitting in my college lecture/classes and then I will get to spend 6ish weeks at Sunrise Elementary in a 4th grade classroom. I feel like I'm learning so much but I am more than ready to get out there and teach some more. I love going into a classroom on a regular basis and getting to know the students. I feel like that is one of the most important aspects of being a teacher. My Reading In Motion program is going wonderfully, I love my students and my teaching partner and I work together almost seamlessly. The only downfall is that I catch myself singing all the silly little songs at the most random and awkward times! Let me tell you I've gotten some pretty funny looks!

We are under a month now, and I am officially starting to freak out! We did move into our new apartment last weekend. [and by we I mean I moved on Friday and Saturday and my parents came and helped me on Sunday!] The new apartment isn't anything glamorous, it's just a small basement apartment but honestly it will do just fine! That is it will be just find as soon as I finish unpacking and decorating. The days are looking me in the face and i'm getting a little nervous that I'm not going to get everything I want to get done before he comes home! But thats life, you take it one day at a time and hope that in the end things work out.

One of my favorite quotes: In the end, everything will be okay. If it's not okay, then it's not the end.
