Well we have been happily married for about a month and a half. Life is great.
A recap on a little recent stuff, as most of you may know, Rob, unfortunately, did not make it into the state police academy. We were both a little disappointed, but now know that God has other plans for us. If Rob so decides he can reapply in 2 years. We aren't sure at this moment if he will do that or see if something else comes along.
This past weekend we found ourselves over in the Frandor area conveniently while the Ingham County Animal Shelter was having their 30 hr Adopt-A-Fest for lots of dogs and cats. Of course we couldn't not stop by there to see what they had, despite the fact we can't have a dog in our current apartment. There were so many dogs there (we didn't look at the cats) and we got to pet and love on them! I was in heaven! We ended up talking to one of the workers from the shelter and she was very informative about what their volunteer program is, and how fostering works etc. It sounds like Rob and I may start volunteering there in the near future. I think it would be a lot of fun, and a good way for Rob and I to spend time together doing something that benefits the animals and helps out the shelter! Who knows, maybe Rob will even get to know a little more about the animal control officers and what they do...
Anyways, near future holds that we are working on our budgets to get things squared away so that we can purchase a house in the next year. We've been looking on and off for a while and nothing really has perked either of our interest, but we also are not in a rush seeing as we signed a new lease in April and that goes for a year. Hopefully when the right house goes on the market, we will get our opportunity to claim it as ours. We will be sure to keep you all posted :)
