Miracle or Guilty Conscience?

Danno came home from pumping iron a few days ago and found what I believe to be a tender mercy of the Lord! There, against the wall where we had left them about 1 1/2 months ago were our stolen gift cards! I know they weren't there before because not only had Danno and I torn up our apartment but my sweet friend Nadia had come and help me look for an hour too! I have no idea how they came back but we are so grateful for this HUGE blessing. We celebrated by getting the internet and Cafe Rio...yum.

We Are Still Alive!

Blogging has been a difficult task for us since Phillip left. Perhaps you are thinking, "who is Phillip? Is it their best friend? The mail man? The crazy neighbor who hammers at 3:14 am?" Nay, he is none of those. He happens to be the small strain of wireless internet that we managed to grab as we await our own hookup to begin. Danno and I have been very busy! School has begun yet again, and the nights of waking up in a puddle of your own slobber in a $200 text book about educating the youth of zion has begun. We have had a crazy first 6 weeks of our marriage! Our gift cards from our wedding were stolen out of our cute little apartment. Luckily, nothing else was taken! The intruder also walked into our home a few days later when I was home by myself, but left when he realized I was home. We have been very blessed and were even lucky enough to find some checks and a few gift cards that made our intrusion a little less sad. I was also blessed this week. Danno was working one of his 12 hour shifts and I was getting restless so I started trimming my split ends. Something went terribly awry and I ended up cutting my own hair including my bangs. Thankfully I'm better at hair cutting than I thought. We are well and we lock our doors religiously now and Danno doesn't leave me alone with scissors.
