I'm just waiting for supper to cook (trying a new recipe for Hawaiian Pork Chops... hopefully they'll taste good!) and thought I should probably give an update. Unfortunately, there's not much to report. Well, nothing exciting anyway. I've realized that a) I haven't taken many pictures over the last few months, therefore leaving my posts somewhat uninteresting, and b) life is a little boring now that I'm not working full time, therefore leaving me with very few stories to share. But I still feel I should be posting for those that get sick of looking at the same stagnant post, time and time again.
Jon's basketball season is a week away from being over. The thought of that is relieving and yet quite sad at the same time. I think we've both grown really attached to this group of guys and it will be weird not to see them every week anymore. I'm excited that Jon's schedule will be a lot more accommodating for other things but it will also be tough to have to say good-bye to these guys. Its been a really great season. In fact, I feel as if I've taken on the role of "basketball mom" having been at almost every game and many of their practices. I feel like these are my kids! :) Nonetheless, the end is in sight. But we did get a little extra time with them after the game on Saturday night. They surprised us by saying that they wanted to take Jon and I out for dinner as a thank-you. Not all of the guys could make it but those that could, met us at one of our favorite restaurants, The WildCat Grill, and had an awesome night of laughter and "bonding." They paid for our meal and even got one of the guys to sneak away to tell the waitress that it was Jon's birthday (not true but very funny). He got a free dessert, complete with a candle on top and a rousing song of Happy Birthday :) We all had a good laugh. The whole evening was a nice surprise and presented a great opportunity to get to know the guys just a bit better, outside of basketball.
I still haven't found a job but haven't given up yet. I really only starting looking at the very end of January/beginning of February, so I'm not too worried at this point. I think I might have a pretty good prospect with a company in Abbotsford but will know for sure by this Wednesday. They said they have to make a decision by then, so I'm praying that I'll be getting a phone call in the next day or two. But I've also come to the realization that if it doesn't work out, then its not where God wants me and I'm OK with that. I want very much to trust His plan and so I know that His opening & closing of doors is His way of getting me to where I need to be. I'll definitely keep you posted.
Other than that, I don't really have much to say. I do have a couple of pictures of the kids from Friday night so I'll leave you with those. We met Jon's family for supper at Burger King after his bball game and the kids were just as cute as always. I think Ava thought she was the next "Burger Queen." :)
