The Mummert Family

Well, we must officially be a family because I now have a social security card that reads Claire Elizabeth Mummert, that's right world, I decided to keep my middle name! I like it. Claire Elizabeth just rolls off the tongue well.

Well I, Claire, am now working at MEA Clinic in Jackson where I take all of the charts 2006 and earlier, run them through the system, re-file the active charts, gut and store the old charts. I have the most exciting job anyone could ask for... or do I? Cal is still analyzing all the risk involved with Nuclear Reactors and what comes with that territory- he's a smart dude. (And a mighty fine husband at that)
We are still getting the apartment put together, receiving gifts, sending thank you notes (the bulk is finished, I'm only doing one for each present I get now- I think 3 are left), and trying to adjust to being married. It's nice not having to live alone, but I'm sure we both have our habits. Our Sunday School (or "Life Group") guest teacher told us the other day that all those weird things we now love about our spouses will become very annoying past the 6 month mark when real life sets in. I'm not sure I believe we stop being newlyweds after 6 months or that all the new will wear off quite that fast, but it's something to think about and strive to become more Godly about.
I have started school- I drive to Fort Worth on Sunday after lunch, take classes all day on Monday and drive back to Flowood (my city) on Tuesday just in time to work for a couple hours before going home.
We have been trying out many fun new recipes- pictures to come. (The chicken pot pie was awesome, the stroganoff was... salty. Although the salt thing was actually in the recipe, we've just decided to leave that one out of our favorites category) I have discovered a love for making things from scratch. I have also discovered that our oven heats 25 degrees too hot- I discovered this 6 dozen mostly burnt cookies later...
Well that's the only update for now, I'm sure I'll right more later but my reading assignments are crazy considering I work every free day (except Saturday) 8-4pm, so my time is short. Ta ta for now!

Oh p.s. Please pray for Cal and I- he's a little sick (although on the mend) and I have caught what he has but apparently my body did not handle it as well as his and is currently hating me. We would both just like to be well. :D


  1. Congrats on the new job! It sounds like you are staying busy. I'm glad you are having fun trying out new recipes and cooking for each other. So much fun!

    By the way, Grace is still asking if you can get married again so she can be a flower girl!

  2. Agreed. Claire Elizabeth is a great name. I'm also glad that you were able to join me up closer to the front of the alphabetical bathroom line, so if we ever feel the need to repeat elementary school, we are way higher up in the pecking order. Sweet deal.

    And your Sunday School class sounds interesting. I think that's why everyone says the first year is the hardest (because the new DOES wear off that fast)... Although I generally disagree with that statement. I'd say the third year is the hardest. That happens to be the year we started rearing a child. Coincidence? Probably not.

    Totally post your recipes man... the good ones (haha).

    Oh, the joys of marriage and guaranteed sickness when your other half gets sick. I hope your body is loving you again.
