Da Bears!

Well, Preston and I found out where we will be headed in a few months....Chicago, IL.

We are so very grateful to the Lord for his blessings and we are grateful that Preston got an internship. Today's high in Tennessee is 58 degrees and in Chicago the high temp. is like 38 degrees...with snow. The cold weather is not so exciting to me, but the adventure that we will have is going to be fun!

We wanted the box to say
Lil' Chicago Pizzaria, but it didn't
It was a good pizza...and deep dish!
Last night we ordered a pizza from a place in town called "Little Chicago Pizzaria". We got a deep dish pizza -- you know -- Chicago style pizza -- to celebrate! Tonight we are going to a friends house for a little party with the three guys going on internship this year.

The program had three candidates seeking internships this year, and all three of them were accepted to a placement! This is so great for the psychology program and it will help them with their accreditation! Everyone in their program is excited for them and it was fun reading all the emails Preston received from his professors and directors and stuff!

As for me, now I'm looking for jobs in Chicago! First, I have to finish my Master's program. :) My big culminating exam thing is due this Monday....which will be a relief to get out of the way! I'm pretty much done with it, just need read over things again and add a few details here and there!

Then we have spring break in a couple of weeks. Preston and I have contemplated going up to Chicago for a few days just to look around the city and figure out where we might want to live and stuff. Also, we need practice (or help) with the Metro system and figuring out where all the "lines" go. We looked at that last night and it was kind of intimidating! It will be fun though.

So, thanks to all those out there supporting and praying for us! God is good....all the time!

Chicago bound,

One long week

I feel like I have been "off" this semester. I'm slightly unmotivated to do my school work, but I'm really enjoying my internship - so that's good! There has yet to be one full week that I have done everything I'm supposed to do exactly the way I'm supposed to do it. I don't know if that makes sense. But we are approaching the fourth week of school....and there have been classes canceled, or online classes meeting, or I've missed a class or missed some work, and I've been at the hospital four out of five mornings this past week. It's just been off so far, and I think it's wearing on me. I'm kind of ready to get in gear; however...

...Preston's grandmother is not doing so well, which has had us at the hospital a lot this past week. It is a very sad time when you see someone you love grieving. Watching some one die brings up interesting conversations with people. It has been a good, emotional, and long week for the Visser/Waterbury families. Even with my salad box (which I still love) we have been eating out more (often at the hospital cafeteria) which has been a bummer to eat unhealthily....but a few weeks off my healthy kick is okay, right?

On top of that MANY of the family members are sick, including Preston. He has been feeling groggy for the last few days. Now he has a slight cough, achy body, and he feels weak -- but no fever. He went to bed at 8:00 tonight...poor guy. It seems like a lack of good sleep and the intense emotions of the week has been wearing on him and the family.

It's nearing midnight. I need to go to bed. I did not have anything to say but just wanted to post on my blog b/c it's been a few weeks!

Goodnight :)
