Crazy life, the short version
How's the actual work? Too soon to tell.
But then these last several days have been insane. Christy has been offered a job which would have her work on nights and weekends. After she and I agonized over it, she turned the job down so that we could still spend time together in the first months of our marriage. It's kind of hard turning down a job offer when there's no backup offer.
This morning, Christy got a call from her mom telling her that Christy's aunt had died. So Christy flew off to Dallas today to comfort her mom. We were already going to go to Dallas for the annual Resnick family reunion/Texas-OU football game. So I'll be flying up on our original plane tickets Friday.
Funny. Christy was never that close to this aunt. I barely knew her. But it's just shocking that she was at our wedding just over a month ago and now she's gone.
So our lives are in total disarray right now. Our apartment mirrors it. Boxes all over the apartment. Stuff strewn about for lack of furniture to put it in.
And Christy's in Dallas while I'm in Atlanta. It's funny. We've been apart before. Hell, we were apart for the better part of 3 years. But I've never felt her absence so keenly as now.
I'm pretty depressing right now, no? On the plus side, I've got my own office, interesting and friendly co-workers, and a William Rehnquist bobble-head doll. On the mega-plus side, I know there's a God who loves me and Christy and has a purpose for us. However hard things get, I know I'm here to love. Keepin' focus on that helps.
Did I mention that I have a William Rehnquist bobble-head doll? It's cool.
Goodnight y'all. I'll e-see you in the morning.
