Okay, I have not posted on here in a very long time. I tried LiveJournal, but it annoyed me in some ways. I post sometimes on MySpace, but it just doesn't seem to be the proper forum for anything of "substance." Since, you know, someday I'm going to dazzle you with my truly magnificent writing ability. Look out publishers, here I come.

Seriously, though, on the "update of my life" side of the coin - things are going fairly well. I still do NOT have a job, and it is certainly not from a lack of looking / applying. I have begun to wonder what is wrong with me again...this stuff is not good for mental health!

We have moved to Albion (January), love it here. Ray is working at Starr Commonwealth.
Starr is only two miles from the house that we are renting, so that is great. We have joined the YMCA in Battle Creek, and this summer I am taking an Ethics class at Kellogg Community College.

Driving through Battle Creek is interesting. Having grown up in the Flint area, I'm used to seeing factories and smelling the "odors". Battle Creek's odors are MUCH better - especially by the Post plant! Today it smelled like that Blueberry Morning cereal. Don't know if they make it there or not, but that is what it reminded me of!

We are attending church in Battle Creek, at First Wes. I really enjoy the services, and especially the music. Brendan begs to go to church, so he must be enjoying the nursery!
