Well into the New Year

Hello, this is a necessary update, as we haven't posted since New Years.

A few of our goals for this year are to keep our house cleaner, workout, and update our blog more often. So far, two of those three are going pretty well. We've done a really good job of keeping our house a lot cleaner than it used to be. With our schedules, we found it hard, as we would get up in the mornings, go to school and work, and by the time we were both home in the evenings, we only had a few hours to spend making dinner and eating, watching our TV shows we follow and sports, doing any running around, and other things we wanted to get done in the evening (which did not include cleaning). So, now our fridge 'proudly' displays a chore list, which we've done a good job of sticking to. Also helping allow us to get all the chores done is our new schedule that we have begun to accommodate working out. We used to sleep in until we needed to get up for work and school, usually 8 for Lindsey, and varying times for Cory. Now our typical morning schedule is up at 6, at the gym by 6:30, home at 7:45 to begin getting ready for the day, work on chores, and eat breakfast together. It also allows for some extra time for us together, which is nice. The third one, however, well that's still a work in progress. We will continue to try and update our blog more often, to keep everyone informed of the things that are going on in our lives.

Since the last post, we have attended our first KU Jayhawk basketball game in Allen Fieldhouse. We went with Cory's parents and one of his brothers. Following the game, we all began getting phone calls and text messages that people had seen us on TV. We didn't believe it until someone sent us a picture, via text message showing us on ESPN! It was a great experience, and we hope to go back.

Cory started his last semester of being a full-time student. Classes resumed on January 13th. Cory is taking 4 classes, only one is on campus and 3 are online classes, allowing him more flexibility in when he can work on them, and gives him more time to work at Wal-Mart. Cory has completed almost all of the required courses to earn his Bachelors in Management, so he filled his schedule with classes from a new major on campus, Tourism and Hospitality. Hopefully the classes will be interesting.

Lindsey has finally settled back into a routine at work, after having all the college students working more hours over Christmas, and working around every one's holiday schedules. Then completing inventory at the store (counting beads is SO much fun...I hope you can sense the sarcasm). Now the big task at hand is the Glitz and Glam Prom Fashion Show that is coming up this Saturday. Lindsey, along with a co-worker and boss, has coordinated a show of 83 high school girls modeling 83 dresses. That means in the last month and a half, 83 fittings in addition to normal sales have been completed. Now all the dresses have been picked, as of yesterday the order has been determined, and now only the final details (a lot of final details) have to be taken care of. It should make for an exciting event.

Well, this is the update we have for now. We hope this finds you all doing well.
