Currently, we have ten people living in what is a 3-bedroom one story home with a basement. Four of us live upstairs in two of the bedrooms, the other bedroom is the TV room, and six of us live in the basement. Mom and Dad have their room, and the girls (Anja and Analee) live across the hall from them. Anika, Gideon, and I have a room downstairs. Josiah, Bub, and Duck share a room, as well. Today we add to the mix Aunt (or sister) Erika, who will live in what is known here as the Little House. (It's basically a converted wood shop out back.) So 11, now. Three bathrooms help, but we need to get another shower operational, or shower time will be an even bigger mess here.
Dad is running for city council here in Lincoln, and has put Anika to work on social media, so expect more of that coming soon. Feel free to like Dad even if you aren't in the area. We'll post something when we get his stuff up. Anika and I registered to vote here in Lincoln, so he's got our votes, for sure.
I'm applying to a number of jobs in the area. One of them seems fun; I am applying to tutor the jocks at UNL. I'd get paid well-ish, and it'd be fun to work at UNL. I'm also applying for teaching certification here in Nebraska. I don't know what the future holds, but I'm willing to embrace it. I am no longer complaining about where I live; instead, I'm happy to be somewhere. Can't wait for the future!
