The comfy life...

Oooh, boy, I'm a liar. I keep thinking I need to update but then get extremely lazy as usual and then just...feh. And not like there's nothing going on, it's just the over-consuming lazy whenever I open up this blog. See? I'm already bored and thinking of things I need to go look up.

I blame super-fast internet, a new TV and Netflix. Oooh, yeah, baby. Newlywed life is sweet.

But, really, life is good and exciting and I'm really liking Dallas so far. It's such a completely different place from Honduras, and maybe in a future entry I'll try to explain the many reasons why. This could be come a whole displaced-person type of account.

Anyway, I'll get back to my reading. Getting through "The Decline and fall of the Roman Empire", a massive history book that's got me completely hooked. It's just all murder, betrayal, depravity...followed by murder, betrayal, depravity and death. Brilliant stuff.

fun times! I promise to update more often, at least once a week. I'll force myself to stick to that.

a much needed update...

I have so much to write here that I don't even know where to start.

It's been just about the craziest two weeks of my life, and definitely the happiest. After months and months of planning and stressing out, everything went off perfectly and we had the best wedding I could have possibly imagined. Everything worked. Everyone had a great time and hey! I'm now a married lady. Hasn't really sunk in yet (I think it'll be a while) but a gigantic weight has been lifted off my shoulders. I feel so incredibly at peace now. I can actually plan ahead now! I don't have to pack bags and leave again! I finally get to stay here for good!
Anyway, I'm gonna try to write up a few entries here about the two weeks we've had. And I'll have photos. Lots and lots of photos. Pre-christmas, Christmas, pre-wedding, wedding, Galveston, New Year's, etc etc etc. As it'll still be some time before I have to seriously start looking for work (paperwork needs to be done, etc), I can spend the time really organizing photos and videos and share with everyone who couldn't be there.

As for now though, let me just wish everyone a happy new year, and may 2010 bring you oodles of good stuff and joyness and all that. Thank you all SO MUCH for the wonderful messages, cards, gifts, etc, etc, etc that you sent me and Graham. I'll thank you each individually when I can but for now I don't want you to think I don't appreciate everything. Because holy cow, I do. I love you guys, thanks for making 2009 so awesome :)
