Song: "You May Be Right" by Billy Joel
Mood: Content

It's really weird that we've been in NC eight months already. As much as we love the great weather and love the area that we're in, I really, really miss my family and friends. I think the holidays are the worst for me. We made it through the 4th of July... Labor Day (that was a rough one)... Thanksgiving and then we were with family for Christmas. Now we're going into Easter and it's hitting me again that I'm so far from family and friends.

I feel like everyone that I know is pregnant. I am happy for all my friends that are moms-to-be... but I can't help but wonder when am I going to get to experience all that. Steve and I are taking our time with trying to conceive, but it's still a bit disappointing each month when we receive word (so-to-speak) that we're not pregnant. We're not at the point that we're taking temperatures or anything like that, but it would be nice it it would happen soon for us. It seems like we're finally getting things organized and settled and the next natural thing for us to do is to start a family.

In the meantime, I've decided that I'm going to go for my National Boards for teaching. The state of North Carolina will pay for me to go through the process, but I have to have three years of teaching in NC under my belt before they'll pay. So... I have to wait two more years before I can start the process. I'm not too concerned about it because I wanted to wait until I've taught for 10 years before starting, and it'll be exactly 10 years when I can begin.

Enough from me for now. I'll write again later... maybe. ;)
Until next time,
