New Desk :)

A couple of months ago Joel and I went shopping for a desk that I could use to sew/use my laptop on. Right now my sewing machine and all my accessories sit on our dining room table, which is fine because we always eat supper at the bar in the kitchen. When we move we will no longer have a bar (sad)....meaning that we will need the table back!

We went shopping at a store about an hour away but were unsuccessful. When we got back to town we went into one of the local stores just on a whim. We found the PERFECT desk for me! It was actually in the children's section and called a child's writing desk. It has a pull out part for a keyboard - or in my case laptop storage! It also has a big open area on the right side that I can store my sewing machine in when I don't want it out on the top of the desk! I'm telling you it's the perfect size. I love it.

Anyway, we had them store it for us because we were getting ready to move and had NO where to put it. This weekend we moved a bed out of the guest room to make room for it (We wanted to go ahead and pick it up instead of having to do that later when we're trying to load the trailer). So I got to play with it some last night, and I am just super excited.

Ok, enough from me...here are the pictures:

See my sewing machine will fit in there perfectly (if I want it to!)

Perfect place to store the laptop :)

What we've been doing...

Well, we've been packing and enjoying the summer days (although I'm still and work and Joel just found out he's teaching a class for the June term). I've packed up what I can - the things that we can live without (other than some of our clothes and such that we're just going to put in the car as is)...now we're down to the things that really can't go into boxes- for example kitchen items - until I don't want to cook for us anymore!

Joel and I also had a conversation about how we shouldn't unpack boxes that have been packed! He's been warned! :)

On Sunday we headed to Athens for me to meet with a principal. We took the opportunity to look around and enjoy some time there. It was a quick trip...headed down Sunday afternoon and came back Monday afternoon. The meeting with the principal went well...they just don't know if they'll have any positions because of the budget and such. So if you get the notion to pray, please be praying for a job for me! Thanks!

Here are a couple of pictures of the famous Arch at UGA. I didn't take these pictures...but thought you might enjoy them.

The Arch is the official walking entrance to the campus. It is on the north side of campus and separates downtown from the start of campus grounds. This view of the arch is from a person standing on campus looking into downtown.

This view from the arch is standing in downtown looking onto campus. Same place...just a different view.

Hope things are going well for you. Are you enjoying the summer (before it gets blazing hot!)?
