Back by Popular Demand!

I'm baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack! It's been a while since I've tickled the "qwerty" row and let you all know what's going on in my life. I've been informed that it's been too long since I've added my two cents so I apologize to those who missed me. Anyway, on to today's topic: Marriage. Jeremy is ready to get this thing done. You wanna know why? Of course you do, that's why you're still reading. I'm ready to get married because life will be so much easier. My reasons - I'm tired of not living together, and secondly, Apollo will no longer have to think his parents are divorced (and his father being the "cool one").

Every week Asha and I have to basically schedule each other in. It's not as bad as it sounds, it's just that we aren't able to easily see each other. I figure, since I really want to marry this girl, it'd be nice to see her face a couple times during the week. Unfortunately, Asha works in Salisbury (editor's note: that's not any sort of slight against you great folks in Salisbury. Just pointing out that my lady works an hour away from me), and due to her occupation location, she doesn't really get home until 6:45-7:00 PM. Also, for those of you who didn't already know, Asha is pretty faithful to her 10:00 PM bedtime. So, that leaves us roughly 2 hours to actually DO something. We'll say I get those 2 hours every day during the work week and that means I only see her 10 hours a week! (and lemme tell ya, if it weren't for face time on iPhone, we'd probably see even less of each other)

Well, with all of that said, we are FINALLY getting close to changing ALL of that. As some of you know, Asha and I have found a beautiful home we'd like to live in. It's the perfect size for us and we're still close to our family and friends. It felt like it took forever to find "the one", but now that we've found it, it feels like as each day passes, our house is sliding further out of reach. Well, time passed, papers signed and the waiting game was played to perfection. Then FINALLY our lovely realtor calls me informing me that the bank has FINALLY done whatever they needed to do to get this short sale process going. (AND BY THE WAY... can someone explain to me why it's called a "short sale"? So far NOTHING about it has felt "short".) So now, it's time to turn power on and get the inspection done. This, along with completing the loan application, will hopefully get done sooner rather than later. Thanks to that one, 10 minute phone call, our house that felt like we'd never be able to get into it is now so close we can taste it! 

Also, in caaaaaaaaaaaaaaaase you didn't know, we have registered at Crate & Barrel, Bed, Bath & Beyond, and Target. At some point we're going to announce when we finally get that house and when we do, feel free to give us one of the gifts from the registry early. We'd like to have a lil' somethin' in the house before June. But don't all of you go doing it. I want to see a nice pile of presents AT the reception too.

Anyway, thanks to those that have been praying for us, keeping up with us, or just happened to be curious as to what's going on in our life. Please, continue praying - it's working! Things are looking bright for our future. Glad you're all along for the ride!
