Starbucks & My Keys

  This morning I decide to stop at Starbucks. I have been making my own coffee in the mornings and was up for a treet. I go in to get my coffee all happy about what a great day it is going to be, and come back out to get in my car. Only I can't get in my car, because my keys are locked in there.

  Now. This is the 2nd time I have locked my keys in my car in that Starbucks parking lot. You can imagine how horrified I was. This time, I had my phone in my pocket (yay!) and have AAA to come and rescue me (yay again!) There is always something to be thankful for, and on top of that I was able to sit and drink my starbucks for an hour :)

  Exciting news!! We will be moving back into the duplex in Worcester that my parents own on May 1st. The 2nd level, just like before. This is such an answer to prayer for us and I am so glad God worked everything out for us to be able to live there again. It is a huge stress off my shoulders and I am so thankful to be settling in somewhere again. Hopefully for more then a few months this time! It is a great apartment and I was very comfortable there before. And after we moved out they put down new wood floors so that will be extra exciting :) I just can't wait!!
 For now we are still in Auburn and enjoying where we are at. Working the same schedule definitely has it's benefits. We both work, try to make it to the gym together when we can (which has been atleast 2 days a week, big accomplishment for me!), and come home at the same time and have some time to unwind before the next day. It is great to be able to not have either of us working crazy hours, and I'm sure we will look back at this time in our life and say how great it is :)
 We were able to go to York, ME Saturday to see a huge house Kurt's uncle bought right by the ocean.  We carpooled with Kyle and Amelia, and met up with quite a few people from his family to explore his uncle's new home, and to go out for lunch.
 If you have been to York maine, and seen Cape Neddick ("Nubble") Lighthouse, then you know how beautiful it is there. Kurt's uncle's house is on the road leading out to this lighthouse. I have been missing the ocean, and am so happy to have visited it once again :) York is only 15 minutes from where we used to live in Wells, ME. Kurt actually gave me my birthday gift parked here at Nubble Light last June.

  Well, I survived getting my wisdom teeth out! I actually remember some of the surgery, which I was not supposed to, but do. And when I remember it, I get shivers down my spine. . .

  Kurt, Kyle, and Aly's birthday is next week on the 14th! Still making plans on what to do. It's so crazy how Kyle & Kurt's (yes, if you didn't catch on from the last sentence, they are twins) is the same as Alyssa's!

  I am trying to find a weekend  for Kurt and I to get away. I don't really care where, how, or when. Just that it happens. The only time I've had off the 5 months I have been working is for my wisdom teeth. And I am just ready to get away for a night or two to take a deep breath, not worry about getting things done, and enjoy some relaxing time with the love of my life.

  Nothing incredibly new or exciting going on. Some friends from Maine came down to visit, which is always nice. Oh yes, and my sister-in-law, Kiersten, came down the week I got my wisdom teeth out. It was so nice to have her for a visit. And to be waited on hand & foot. Thanks Kierst!

 Also, I have the best family in the world. The medication I took for the pain with my teeth made me so nauseous and dizzy I could hardly function. I couldn't drive for the whole week I had such bad motion sickness. Everyone was amazing in helping cart me around and take care of me. I appreciate my family so much and really couldn't do it without them. I am so blessed!

  Could you pray for Kurt? He is trying to decide on what direction to head in as far as a "career" goes. He doesn't feel like driving a delivery truck really cuts it for him, but does not know what God wants him to do. I don't really care what it is, just that he is happy and content! So prayers would be appreciated. Thanks!
