So...this whole blogging thing is new to me, but might be fun. New year, new challenge, right? Might as well give it a go. Plus it will give our friends and family an opportunity to keep up with us without actually talking to us. Isn't that the point of this information age? To know as much as you can about your acquaintances with minimal face to face interaction? :-) Just kidding. Seriously, though, maybe you will learn something new about us. At the very least, I hope you'll be entertained. (That is, if I keep up with this...) I sincerely doubt that Steve will ever blog; if he does I might have to keel over in shock.
Since this is blog numero uno, here's a brief update on our current life: Steve and I have been married about four years, and we are currently living in Port Orchard, WA. Steve is stationed on the Nevada, which is undergoing an overhaul in Bremerton, but will eventually move back to Bangor. Steve loves his job, and wishes he could spend the night because it's so much fun. Oh...wait...he does spend the night...how could I forget? He'd also really like to work on the weekends; he says it smells so nice, he doesn't want to be anywhere else. Oh...right...he does work weekends. So yeah, Steve works a lot, so we make the most of our limited time together. At the moment, we are watching back episodes of Lost on Hulu. Ah, the bonding that can happen over an episode of 50 people stranded on an island. Good times. I'm working as the Credit Assistant for an oil company in Tacoma, which is a bit of a drive, but I don't mind. I actually really enjoy my job, aside from people yelling at me. That part sucks. But I get to carry around a box cutter with my thugs and demand that people give me money. What could be better? (FYI, that was a joke. Please don't tell the police I use a box cutter as a weapon.) I'm also in rehearsals for a show in Poulsbo, during which I get to speak in a Welsh accent. Yup. I'm from Wales. It's cool.
Steve and I have a wonderful dog named Kenai; we found him on Craigslist last year. We had a bunch of people over for Christmas and he didn't pee once. I was so proud. Huge accomplishment for the little guy.
That's us in a nutshell...a Brazil nutshell...which is actually a seed, masquerading as a nut.
