Updates...

Update-  After the last post, I put my brave face on, went to work, proceeded to throw-up my lunch in the shared student/teacher bathroom, cried to one of the secretaries and went home early.  I slept from 1-5, woke up ate some Cheerios then slept from 7:30pm-10:00am.  I finally think the crud has left our home for good, praise the Lord.
 
In other news, we sold our truck and are now a 1 car family.  The poor truck just sat and sat in the parking lot and we just paid and paid for the thing.  We were "casually" looking to sell it and a dealer offered us a good price (more than Kelly Blue Book) so we sold.  It is so nice not to have a monthly car payment, monthly insurance payment, property tax bill, and to be debt free.  I think Dave Ramsey would be proud, thanks Ashley for the introducing us to Dave :)


We have decided to stay here for the summer.  Marty was deciding between two internships, and we chose the youth internship at our church here in Missouri.  Not only does it pay, but it is an internship that will continue through the rest of our time in seminary.  We have been feeling more called to serving youth/teens since we have been out here and I think this is a great opportunity for Marty to learn the ins and outs of youth ministry.


 And in really important news- I am currently drinking my first diet coke all week.  Ever since the crud hit the house, my desire for DC has almost diminished.  We haven't purchased a pack of it for at least two weeks. Maybe something good can come from getting sick :)
