|More disjointed updates (I'll make up for this time deficiency one of these days, eh?)

Here's what's happened since I've gotten back:
--I've resumed working full-time at my bookstore, found out I've procured a raise & a future week's paid vacation (!!!!!), and things are nuts as can be (all this scrambling to get ready for the Fall semester). Mind you, I prefer it when work is nuts so I'm happy.
--Ari's black-belt test is scheduled for September so he's practicing like mad.
--He now has a car!! A '97 Taurus, given to him quite generously by a fellow brown-belt (it's custom for everyone to give gifts to someone going black). It's in great shape and is, possibly, the safest model Ford ever made. Ari's in love with it. Consequently, we've made plans to get our licenses together and are taking our permit tests on Monday! Hopefully, this time around, I won't get another car totalled in my learning process. *knocks on wood*
--School's starting in a few weeks...I don't know whether to dance or shudder, as always.
--Leona (Ari's grandmother) is almost ready to move in. Another month, hopefully. This side of the house is starting to look amazing and we've been putting finishing touches onto it.
--August 15th was 2 1/2 years with Ari, and it seems to be getting even better with time. It really doesn't seem like this long!
--I STILL haven't gotten to the photos and am truly sorry about it. I want to actually have enough time to update, but alas! Time's never on my side because it's always filled up with other random crap.
