Endings and Beginnings....

On some family occasion. My Uncle Eddie, Grandma, and Grandpa.


At the Salt Lake Temple pretending to get engaged.



In Prescott and snow for the first time. I lost my shoe and Michael and his cousin had to dig through the snow to find it.


A bald eagle in Prescott.


Just making faces.

The beautiful Mesa Temple.

Big pink chair in Mesa.


My Christmas presents from a few years ago. Cooking stuff. And we weren't even engaged then.


Michael's younger brother Joshie.


One of the first times meeting Michael. Didn't know I would have to teach him how to eat.


On top of some mountain after a hike.


Michael feeding some geese. What can I say? He attracts everything!!!


Disneyland with Captain Jack Sparrow and Roy.






Wow!!! It's crazy that Michael graduates tomorrow!! I am so proud of that kid!! He has been working his butt off since I have met him, and since he has been here, it has been no different. Time and time again, we have made plans and he has to break them because of various study groups. It has been a fun ride though. I have found joy in supporting him through school and everything. I am glad though that his done now. That doesn't mean that we are moving. We will still be here until I graduate or finish what I need to. Idaho has been fun, but I hate the snow. Maybe that's because in Arizona, in the city at least, we just don't get the white stuff there. I think that I might be warming up to it though... yeah right!! This past year has been amazing too. So many memories have been made, and a lot of changes have occured in my life...good and bad. As promised, more pictures to tell our story.

Michael acting all tough before graduating. He claims he never "got beat up" but I know differently. I just hope those muscles will help him in his future.

Memories in Pictures


































Just some memories. Our friends, Brett and Hailie from Arizona. The two elders that taught me, Elder Simon and Elder Haas. Me at the Arizona Science Center. I was told that I look like I'm 12 yers old. We got to meet President Uchtdorf and his wife. Such a funny couple. We went to the Sacred Grove and got a ton of pictures taken. Michael posing. He was trying to get a gig with GQ. We went to Mesa and had fun out there too. More pictures to come.

Thanksgiving Day


It's Thanksgiving Day!!! YAY!! Michael and I went and sang in the Turkey Choir this morning. The Turkey Choir is the Rexburg Community choir. We have been practicing for the past few weeks and today was the big day. It was so fun. At last night's practice, during one of the songs we sang, the conductor thought it would br funny if he had the guys burp. Well, my husband, got the part by himself. Today, when he was supposed to burp for the audience, it failed. He walked up with his arms in front of him, one on top of the other, and when he went to open his mouth, nothing came out. One of the other guys that he was sitting by got up and did the burpage for him. The audience just cracked up. Well, this is our first Thanksgiving together as a married couple and so far it has been good. We are excited to eat all the food. The ward that we have here was nice enough to put on a Thanksgiving feast for all those that had no where to go. Super exciting!! Everyone has been saying to not a lot, because I will turn into a turkey, but I think that's a little too late with Michael and I.

School Work Brings Back Memories

So, today I had to work, followed by a huge muscle exam for my Anatomy/Physiology class. As usual, when I work with a particular pharmacist, things always go haywire. There is never ever an exception to that fact. It seems like everytime I am there with him, something always go wrong. For those people that know little about what takes place in a pharmacy, here's a brief explanation. Many people have insurance, either for medical stuff like doctors and dentists, etc. Some have insurance just for medications. And tons of people have insurance that will cover everything from prescriptions to cosmetic surgery. Well, if there is a problem with the insursnce, meaning some numbers don't match, we have to call and see what the issue is. So today, the other technician that I work with was busy on the phone with an insurance issue trying to get a prior authorization done. This [prior authorization] means that the insurance won't cover the medication and the doctor has to call the insurance and tell them why the patient needs it. It literally takes forever, especially when some doctors just don't care and lolly gag around until the last minute. Anyway, back to the story. So this tech was on the phone and all the pharmacist kept saying was why she wasn't working. I got so pissed off. Then he got on my case, and I wasn't going to have that. Like I do when someone tries to control me, I just did my own thing. If he was just going to complain and say that we don't work, I was going to give him a reason to say so. Then after that, we had a ton of prescriptions for C2 drugs. These are drugs that are highly controlled, such as Adderall, Ritalin, Morphine, and Oxycontin. Well, after a pharmacist fills a prescription for one of these, they have to count to make sure what we have on hand is what the "Control" book says. When this pharmacist works, we are always off on our count. He will then make mention of it, and have either I or the other technician count the pills to make sure that he didn't make a mistake. When the count comes out the same as he came up with, the entire pharmacy literally gets searched. He looks under the cabinets, in the trash cans, everywhere. It's just ridiculous and it wastes so much freakin' time. Oh well. I know that I won't be like that after I get my pharmacy degree.
When I got off, I went to my husband's IBC class. He's part of Necktopia. That's the 100% pure silk tie company. I would recommend buying one or a few. There are some pretty nice looking ties. Anyway, after his class, I had to run over to the Benson and take my test. Part of the test consisted of naming some muscles from a cadaver. The smell wasn't that bad, but at the end, I started to get a little light headed. As I was leaving, I was thinking about my grandfather. I guess some memories just never fade. I was thinking of him yesterday as well as I was eating some chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream. I don't know what came over me but I just started bawling. He passed away on July 15 of this year. I guess it sucks because I last saw him alive in April and he was doing so well. I had talked to him on the phone not even a week before he died. I remember him telling me that he was so excited to see me in just a couple more weeks. I was looking forward to seeing him too. Then BAM! One night I get a call from my parents telling me that he had suffered a heart attack while doing dialysis. I couldn't believe it. The next night I got a call saying that his condition was getting worse and that they would be pulling the plug. I just couldn't help but bawl. He was my closest grandfather, and the only one I really ever knew. And I was his little penelope. My grandmother was next to him and when she asked him questions, he would grip her hand. I could just feel for her and what pain she must be going through knowing that her husband of over 50 years was going to be in heaven soon. His death has caused a lot of animosity within the family. My aunt is primarily the one to blame and I sure have let her know. So much has been bottled up inside me and I think this blog is where I will be doing a lot of my venting. Sorry for those of you that will be reading it a lot.

Just Some Thinking

I thought since it has been rainy, blue would be the best color for today's entry. As I was driving and listening to the radio, a few songs came on that I hadn't heard in such a long time. It's just weird how one little song, or even just a few lyrics can bring you back to a different time. I heard a song from Fuel, and boy oh boy, my mind was gone. I was brought back to my freshman year in high school, when I had my first boyfriend. They weren't the best of times, but I did survive. I am such a big fan of the music that was played in the 1990's. I just loved it. I remember sitting at my grandparents' house back home, during the summer and just watching MTV all day. I remember watching TRL and thinking how lucky Carson Daly was to be meeting all my favorite artists; Backstreet Boys, Christina Aguleria, Jessica Simpson, 98 Degrees, etc, etc. And now, this Sunday, the last episode of TRL will air. It's crazy. Some guy on the radio was talking about that today, and how MTV is called Music Television for a reason, but they are doing away with more and more of the music, and bringing all the crazy reality shows about drunkards and sex addicts. I guess there's always VH1.
Well, I'm here babysitting once again at the Nates' home. I was a nanny once, but the mom was a total self absorbed person, who only cared about herself and what she could do to make herself look better and better each and every day. It was definitely the nanny type mom like in the book, The Nanny Diaries. Here, I actually have control over the kids and they listen. I couldn't believe it the first time I babysat. I just think about how the Nates discipline their children. I just don't know what to do at times. Sending kikds to their room is always good, but I remember when I got sent to my room and I would just play with all the toys I had. I guess that's better than beating up on siblings.
One last comment. Tonight I was talking with a friend, and we were discussing fake people. Some of you know what I'm talking about. It's those types of people that act all nice just to get something, then become a total witch when you turn your back. I just don't get it. All I have to comment on, is that "they (fake people) drool, and all nice people (names deleted) rule." **As for the last quotation comment, you know who you are**

Well, today was eventful... not really. It really sucks being off track and only working like 3 days a week. What is a girl supposed to do with herself? I suppose I could go to the mall that we have here. Oh that's right, I live in Rexburg, where we have practically nothing except a bunch of LDS members and a bunch of high school wannabes. I wouldn't haveminded going outside for a bit, except for the fact that it rained all day, like it has been doing for the past week. I know for sure that that's what I miss the most back home in Arizona. It never really rained there, and it was nice and toasty pretty much all year long. When it did rain, it did one of two things. Either, we would get a five minute sprinkle with the sun poking out every few seconds, or we would get a nice thick dust storm, followed by a sprinkle of rain, then a move in of clouds which brought along thunder, lightning, and a nice down pour of rain. I loved it! Here though, we just get cold, never ending rain. What a crock!
