Wedding Countdown Ticker
Good news! May 02

It was a busy weekend.  Not that M and I were really busy but life in general was.  There was a royal wedding (which has been discussed), M FINALLY got his job offer!  And there is one less terrorist in the world.  See lots going on.

First we will start with M’s new job.  I am very excited about this.  I’m not sure I’ve talked about the increasingly poor state of his current company but things are going down hill.  I really was waiting for the day he would tell me they were closing their doors.  Thankfully now I won’t have worry about this any longer.  Unfortunately the new place took longer then expected to get all of the paperwork drawn up so he won’t be able to start the week after the wedding.  He will start the last week of May.  I know he is a little nervous about starting a new job, but I also know he will do great.  I am very excited and proud.

I’m not sure what to think when I hear breaking news first on FB.  Last night we were laying in bed watching TV when I grabbed my phone and for my “last check of the night.”  That’s when I saw about 5 statuses all stating Bin Laden had been killed.  M immediately turned on the news and we waited for Obama to confirm the reports we were hearing.  Sure enough American operatives located him at a mansion in Pakistan and killed him.

I think it’s great that a person this bad is no longer here to hurt more people but at the same time I don’t feel I am excited.  Grateful the hunt is over, thankful people will no longer fear this guy but not excited, not happy.  Cautiously optimistic might be a good phrase.  I think I might feel differently had he been caught/killed years ago.  It’s been almost 10 years since 9/11.  I hope the latest news will help victims/survivors of 9/11 sleep a little easier and that would make me happy.

* It hardly seems the post but I am officially getting married NEXT WEEK!
