Here I was trying to be good about updating.  It's been more than a month...

I do have a pretty good excuse, though.  I have a job now!  I started the beginning of April and have been sooo busy with that.  I work for the U.S. Census Bureau working on the decennial census.  I get to supervise the people who go out and interview the households that did not return their questionnaire (or return it in time).

I really enjoy it.  I was surprised by how much I like teaching.  It's actually made me think about getting my teaching certificate and trying that out.  We'll see, though.  That would be a ways away.  It's nice to have something to do again.  This job is perfect because it ends this summer, just in time before we leave for Northern Ireland!  I'm actually going to be doing administrative type things for the project Chris is on (the whole reason why we'll be in Belfast).  I'm excited for that since it will give me something to do while Chris is at work and I'll get paid!

My little sister comes this Saturday to visit for almost two whole weeks!  Unfortunately, since I'm working full time, we won't be able to do some of the things we planned on (like going to Canada since we both have never been).  

Oh, and my tulips in my garden look great (minus all the weeds that we have since I haven't had time to pull them, much less clean in general).
