Working 9 to 5

I have to say this is spooky. I blog about all of my internships and not having a full time job and then came the phone call:

Last Thursday, the president of the Alzheimer's Association, where I have been interning, called to ask me to take a full time position. I was very unsure about this because KW will most likely need to move to another city for his summer internship. I was not looking foward to having a great job for my career and a 3 months without my husband. I most likely would have picked not having a job over not seeing KW for the summer because its "the big girl thing to do," as my dad says. He was really pushing me to be responsible and accept the fact that adults need to make tough decisions. I was FREAKING out about making this decision. So I went to talk to my president on Friday, and she offered me the job with the ability to take the summers off. OH YEAH, you heard me. I will be paid to work until the Summer, and then she will get a temp for the summer until I came back in late August. Is that not amazing?!?! God is totally providing for me and Ken and our marriage. It makes me want to cry with happiness that God is taking care of us. Not that it was a doubt. Thanks for all the prayers and well wishes for me finding a job, yall. I really appreciate it.

Where I will be working starting NOVEMBER 1:
