early morning....at least for me!

Oh how my perspective has changed! When I was teaching, I used to think it was such a luxury to sleep until 6:30 because I was up so early and hitting the road to Lexington by 6:10 each morning. I guess summer has spoiled me because NOW i consider 8ish early. Granted I used to go to bed at 9:30 and now I am staying up until midnight-still it's going to be a rude awakening when I have to start working again!


I dropped James at class this mornin
g so that I can pack the car and we can hit the road to SC as soon as he finishes his 2 tests.
He has been studying so hard and long this week--so this week off will be WONDERFUL! Plus this week is extra exciting because Jami is getting MARRIED on August 8th and we are both part of the wedding. It's crazy to think that my big brother tying the knot AND buying a house all in one week! His fiancee Lauren is a welcome addition to our family:) We love her and are so
glad he chose someone so awesome! Can't wait!

In other news, as much as I love where we live- I have one complaint...why in the WORLD would anyone name a building with the letter O. You might think, what is she talking about? Well, here at Village Manor all the apts. have a letter and number--like A7 or K9...well we live in building O. The problem? EVERYONE seems to think that the letter O is a zero which gets quite confusing. Since we live in O2, people automatically drop the O and suddenly we live in apt. 2! Ridiculous. Luckily, one way or another we have still gotten all our mail (at least we hope?)! Other than that Village Manor is a gem and we keep trying to convince more people to move here!

Well, there is LOTS to do before we head to SC, so I really must be going. Next time I blog, hopefully I will be in the sunny south enjoying the pool!

sunday picnic in cherokee park:) beautiful.




actually this one is from downtown Louisville's waterfront park....still beautiful.

Little James goes out into the world...and starts DENTAL school!
































Name tag says "UofL, James B. Bush, Student Doctor"

The first post sets the tone...

I'll use the first post to catch you up on us-- this summer we packed up all of our things again and made the move to another new city-Louisville. While moving is stressful and not always fun, we both have settled in and feel right at home in our new community. We have such wonderful, friendly neighbors that we actually like to hang out with (very different from our athletic, bass pumping neighbors in Richmond)!!! We threw away all our moving boxes this time because we plan on staying right here until James is done with school!! We have started going to Sojourn church and love it...and James is already studying his way through dental school. He has been doing gross anatomy and has recently picked up another class (dental anatomy/preclinical operative). He has already started practicing drilling teeth! I must say I am so proud of how well he is doing! I am married to such a smartie! It hits me everyday when I see him in his blue scrubs with his "James B. Bush, Student Doctor" name tag that he is going to be a DENTIST! Dr. James B. Bush! Wow- exciting!

As for me, I have found myself enjoying summer in different ways. Moving to a new city has its challenges especially when you don't jump right into a new job or school...but I have already made lots of new "friends" and reconnected with many old ones! I do suffer from frequent boredom when James studies for big tests, but luckily we got an amazing deal and I am enjoying some serious HGTV and TLC. I am literally addicted. I think I have decided that there is NO WAY I can have cable once we have children...YIKES! But for now, it's a nice way to spend my "free" time. I often redecorate our apt. in my mind.

While James is studying for a lab practical and test on Friday, House Hunters is on and I have to see which house they choose (see the addiction?) so I will sign off for tonight....until next time.
