Rainy Morning

Ahhhh, Monday morning. What a feeling!
I spent a LOT of time driving and on the phone this weekend. Practically the whole time, in fact. I caught up on me-time and talk-time. And puppy-time too. It was nice.
Yesterday after church Kenny and I met with the pastor to "interview" for pre-marriage counseling. That was very interesting, to say the least. I guess we passed the interview, because soon we'll be setting a date with the church. I asked the pastor if he ever failed anyone, and he said yes, so I guess we're fine. He said in January we have to take this 8 hour class on a Saturday (I know I can handle 8 hours, but Kenny? No way!) and 4 of those 8 hours are to take a psychological evaluation. Hello? What? I was shocked. He said that this test came from Harvard back in the 20s, which REALLY makes me want to take it. Hmph. We'll do whatever we need to do to get married in Kenny's family church. It's beautiful, offers a ton of things, and is only a couple miles away. Plus, it's his family church. I just can't get over the psych eval. Shouldn't that be something that you do when you first start dating?? Oh well. I asked him if we fail the eval (I just wanted worst case scenario) will he still marry us. He said, "Of course." And that's all I needed to know. I don't expect us to fail at all, I just wondered what the protocol was for that. So hopefully this week we'll have a date nailed down. And then I can tell my blogging world when I'm
Other than that, things are very calm here. The puppy is just fine, she spent a lot of time with me in the car visiting people this weekend, which she LOVES. Kenny is busy and cute as usual, and I've booked myself silly already this week doing things after work, which I always do and then bitch about not having any time to relax. Typical!!! And none of it is wedding related! I know that will be changing very quickly! Have a marvelous Monday!!

A psych eval? Who would've thought! Will you share the results? ha! I would like to do premarital counseling this time around...I didn't have a CLUE what I was getting into when I was 23 and fresh out of college...I just thought I had the fairy tale! LOL!

Isn't a doggie car ride fun? Jax LOVES to go for car rides!! You can see the pure joy on their faces.

Wow...a psych evaluation??? You've gotta post on that! My friends that got married in my home church said they went through couple's counseling and the pastor (in his 60s) was asking them some really personal questions (about sex and such) and she said it was so weird. Hopefully no weirdness for y'all!
