More Thoughts from the Midwest…

Hudson says “HELLO!”  🙂

It’s been a little over two weeks since arriving here in East Lansing, Michigan.  We have settled in quite nicely and our daily routine is fairly set.  In the mornings (anywhere between 5:45 and 6:45am), we’ll drive the 10 to 15 minutes to the hospital to drop off InChul for another day at the hospital (we’re down to one car at the moment…and unless I want to be stuck at home all day, this is our only option).  Then, I’ll busy myself with either my new found couponing hobby, applying for jobs online, or (soon to restart) studying for the GRE.  And, of course, I have Hudson to divert my attention to attend to his every beck and call.

So the humdrum daily grind has commenced…and it seems quite weird to think that I’m at the age where the mundane day-to-day routine is preferable.  I was never one to enjoy routine…I always thrived on the new and exciting.  But I suppose my personality is beginning to change as my age and surroundings change.

There are still a couple of things that have not been settled yet…

We are still seeking a church here in East Lansing.  The problem is that we can’t seem to find one where we really feel “at home”.  While it’s has been difficult to find churches where we feel we can really click with the vision and doctrine, I suppose we have aggravated the situation by comparing EVERY church we attend with our church back in Atlanta (we miss you all so much!).  It is difficult…finding a church when you really don’t know anyone in the area.  Please continue to pray for us as we try to find a church to plug into.  Myself especially…since at this point, I really don’t feel I have access to people my age I can talk to and build relationships with (no job and living in a college town definitely makes it difficult).

Hudson is slowly getting adjusted to his new home.

And, of course, it would be nice to have employment and have another paycheck coming in.  This is the first time I’m actually looking for work without any contacts or ties to a school/company.  I never realized how great I had it in Atlanta, knowing so many people and having graduated from a local university.  Please pray for me to find work, because right now, having a single paycheck is not a viable option for us.

So, to all of you back in the good ol’ ATL, know we miss you all and are thinking of you often.  A special thank you to Stephanie (your sweet card made it here, and I thank you for all your love and encouragement) and to our St Paul’s brethren (also for your card to us…you will never know how much we cherish you guys) for your thoughts and well wishes.  I will see you again next weekend as I make a short trip back to Georgia.  I hope to meet with as many of you as I possibly can in my short time there.
