New Update!

Well, no New York! (well, at least for now). We decided to spend atleast one more year in Texas. I got a teaching job in Plano and Chris is still in Abilene until his enlistement is up (somewhere around the end of October). We visit each other on the weekends...kinda sucks...but it's better than not seeing each other for longer.

Update's an update on what's been going on with Chris and I:

I am in New York right now (for a month...until June 24th) as a long-term sub for a middle school general music/choir teacher. They finish school MUCH later than us Texans! It's been pretty good so far. I'm staying with my in-laws and driving about 30 minutes to the school where I'm at. One thing I've realized is that I think I'm meant to teach elementary music. Middle School music is okay....but I don't have as much fun as I do with the little ones. While I'm here, I'm looking for a job for the 06-07 school year. I do have an interview at an elementary next Thursday so wish me luck! During the interview, I have to do a "demo" lesson with a 4th grade class so that should be fun! I'm also taking another online graduate class while I'm here....Foundations of Music, fun!

Chris is still back in Abilene. He's working away on those little jets :) and also taking an online class through English Literature class. We were not together on our first anniversary so we were a little sad about that.

Well, that's all for now! I'm off!

Some wedding pictures...

Our little Kitties- Duncan and Sophie

These are some pictures from a day when we decided to play dress up. Duncan is the orange and white cat and Sophie is the gray cat. As you can tell by the looks on their faces, they had a great time!

A couple of pictures from our Honeymoon

Playa del Carmen

April 7, 2006

Well, nothing exciting here.....We are just up to our usual routine: Chris- work and school and Minda- work and school. Chris is in an English online class and is also taking a History class. I am taking a Psychology of Music graduate class and also auditing a Kodaly Level II class so I'll be ready for Level 3 this summer. We did have both of our kitties declawed so that was pretty traumatic. I even took Sophie to the Emergency Vet Clinic in the middle of the night b/c I overreacted and thought she was bleeding and crying too much. Apparently, she was fine.

We did take a trip to visit Chris' family in upstate New York during Spring Break. It was a lot of fun. We got together with basically ALL of his family (lots of fun). We got to take a "VIP Tour" of a that was really neat. We also had lunch one day at this country club with a beautiful view of a lake. (See picture) I did have one job interview which I felt went pretty well. The next week, the assistant superintendent I interviewed with called my principal for reference checks and then I received a letter saying I was put on an "approved candidate list." Now I just have to wait for a principal to call me for the next step. Fun, fun!

Right now we are planning to take a trip to Fredericksburg, Texas for our first anniversary. It seems wierd that we're actually already to that point.
