So there's being speechless, and then there's being speechless. I am currently without words for two reasons:
1) My Washington state license is taking FOREVER to get completed. The Department of Health has been astonishingly un-helpful (even to the point of giving me erroneous information TWICE that set me back at least a week and a half). At this point it is looking like it will be another several weeks (up to 8!) before I can start work. I've moved to WA. I've paid rent. I have no income. See the problem?
2) My drive out here was stunningly beautiful. Really. Everywhere I went was more beauty, and I got to see SO many good friends (including one who I might marry, hmmm?) and the people I'm staying with here in WA have been so giving and friendly that I feel like they're family even though we just met.
God is good. I'm provided for.
In weight-loss news, I'm pretty excited about the Aquatic Rec Center here in town-- they have a circuit room (like Curves, which I loved!), cardio, weights, swimming, basketball/raquetball courts.... and it's cheap! Plus (and this is even better) I am now within very easy driving distance of about 1 million beautiful hiking trails. Tonight I went for a quick hike down to the ocean. Yeah, no big deal. It was fantastic.
