Well, it has happened. It is the time in Portland where it likes to rain every day! I don't mind the rain once in awhile, but to be honest I just really don't like it. I am guessing that it is something that I will just have to get used to. I don't have much to say, I just felt like blogging a little bit. Garrett is at work tonight until 10:30 and I have been all alone since 4:00 PM. I had a lot of cleaning to do, and I got all caught up on that. I also had some time to take a nap and watch some T.V. So, now I can just relax.
Things have been really good for Garrett and me here in Portland. Things are looking up for us. We love Multnomah, our jobs, a new church we found, and each other! My job is offering some kind of cool opportunities. I took some photographs for the Dean for a book that he is writing and that will be published. He said that I will definitely get the photo credits in his book and he will send me a copy when it is finished! Cool, huh?! I was really excited about that.
Garrett and me registered for Spring classes on Thursday. I will be taking: Intro to Spiritual Direction, Intro to Philisophical and Christian Thought, New Testament Gospels, Bible Study Methods, General Psychology, and Social Factors in Relationships. I am pretty excited about most of those, especially the psychology one!
Well, that is pretty much all for now. Not much to say, just enjoying life! :)

So, the computer said my prints would be ready by 5:20 PM. I didn't leave my house until 6:00 just to be safe. When I got outside it was pretty windy and rainy, I wasn't looking forward to driving 10 minutes in this weather. But, I finally made it to the store. I get out and find the photo center. I am standing in line when an international man who pretends not to speak english cuts right in front of me! I couldn't believe it! It was a very very obvious cut and it was very obvious that i was in line. Him and his wife just continued talking in a langauge different than english. This shocked me and ticked me off, but of course I didn't say anthing. Here is a grown man and his wife that did this and I am already uncomfortable here...I am the only white person for mile. Not to be rude, but I am being honest. So, anyways in addition the photo associate is clueless and is freaking out, because his coworkers are no where to be seen and he doesn't know what to do in order to help the cutter in front of me. After 10 minutes of waiting I get asked what i need help with. I say I ordered prints online for the one hour photo and need to pick them up. In response I am told that their one hour printing machine is broken and they do not have my prints, and that I need to come back tomorrow. I am informed that they will pay me back the difference of the one hour charge. So, I left the Wal Mart with no pictures in hand, just a very very angry spirit. And, I am still trying to calm down... never will I go to the trashy Wal Mart again...

Garrett also feels good about it, because the manager told him that he has a lot of confidence in Garrett and thinks that he won't need much training. So, that made Garrett feel really good. I am gald that he can be encouraged by his job...so I hope that lasts. I think that he might continure to look around for a better paying job, but for now he is glad to have this one! We are just so thankful that he finally got a job! The tough thing was getting an interview. Once he had an interview they both wanted to hire him. I told him that once they meet him they are so impressed that they want him right away! It is hard to tell the character of a person just by an application.
Anyways, just wanted to follow up on my last post. I am so thankful that God gave Garrett this job!
My job is going really well. I like the people I work with a lot. My boss is great. She is 40 and is so much fun to talk to. Anyways, I am very blessed for this job as well.
I think that is about it for now. Just studying hard, working, sleeping, and getting ready for my mid semester break coming up!
...sorry I will not be back home to Boise. Garrett and I both have work and homework. :)
But I miss you all and love you! Good night. :)

I got off work at 3...right when his interview was. It was raining today so he couldn't take the scooter, so he has the car. I have been waiting in the library for 1 hour and 17 minutes now! So, I hope the interview is going well.
I will let you know what happens when I get word. I am just praying very hard right now that he will get it!!!

Garrett and I met my grandparents from CO and my dad and family in Newport this week. They came to Portland on Sunday night and headed to the coast on Mon. Garrett and me didn't go over until Tuesday due to our anniversary. I hadn't seen my grandparents since the wedding and I really didn't get to see them then either. So, it was great to see them! My dad rented a house that was right on the coast and we all stayed in that. We had a great time going to the beach, the aquarium, shopping, out to eat, playing games, and to a lighthouse! My favorite thing we did, though, was go whale watching. We went out on a boat pretty far out into the ocean to try and see a whale. We didn't end up seeing one, but Garrett and my dad saw three dolphins! I didn't see anything because I was too busy having fun! haha. The boat went so fast and the waves out that far in the ocean are really big! So, the boat was rocking and dipping all over the place. Garrett and me went to the front part of the boat, stood up, and held on to the railing...let's just say we got soaking wet! I could taste salt all over my lips and in my hair. The waves were just so big and would splash us from where we were standing. My grandma, unfortunatley, didn't have such a good time. She was yelling and yelping for her life! She thought we were going to die she said and while we were on the boat she asked me, "Angela, are you praying?!" I said, "no." And she goes, "well, you better start!" haha. Poor grandma. Anyways, we had a great time with my family and I can't wait to do it again!
