Let me see if I can catch you up on the last two weeks before nodding off at the keyboard. Finals week is upon me and, more than the tests, I’m still recovering from the two small books that I wrote at the beginning of this week, one on American immigration literature and the other on Jewish-American feminist midrash. #Graduating!
Last week we went on a fun double date with a couple from our ward that lives down the street and are recently married. We went bowling and then out for ice cream at our favorite Roll Up Creamery. Bowling was a blast because AnneMarie bowled 170+ on the first game (high score of the night and overall high scorer!!!) and I, after bombing my first game bowled a 140+ on the second game. Needless to say, the other couple thought we were pros, which isn’t at all true as Porter can attest to my bowling failures the week before, but we do love a few sets of the game at our favorite lanes at Miracle Bowl.
This week AnneMarie dove headfirst into her new job at Shirley’s, bakery which, though not a dream job, hasn’t been that bad, and she has lots of hilarious stories from her experiences in the café. She also brought me a GIANT Easter egg sugar cookie after my last day of classes. She brightens my day in so many ways : ) and I am very grateful for her hard work. Speaking of which, I’m still waiting to hear back about this full-time job that I’ve applied for and interviewed three times for. Prayers are appreciated as I wait to hear back.
All our Love and Laughter,
Tanner and AnneMarie
