Michael and I are movie stars... okay not really, but we are in a movie. It's called Life, A True Story. We filmed back in March and finally saw ourselves on the big screen last night. It was neat, but kind of weird at the same time. It's a movie that was filmed here in Rexburg. The main plot is about a guy who goes through life's trials: getting dumped, can't find a job, moving, etc. It's really good. We were told that it will only be shown in a few places, which made me sad cause I wanted my family to see it. After it gets shown to smaller communities, it will be submitted to the Sun Dance Film Festival. I'm so excited for that!!! We'll see what comes of all this. The movie was amazing. It's really cool how one person films for about a month or so then edits for the next few months until the movie comes together. Movie posters were made for this movie as well and I got one. It even has our names on it. So awesome!! Here are the pics.

Life will once again become stressful and lonely starting on Monday. Michael will be starting Graduate school. He has night classes every day except Friday. On Wednesdays, he'll be driving to Pocatello which is about an hour and a half away from where we live. On that day, he'll be getting home close to mid-night. I'm not looking forward to that. I'm one that gets scared at night and especially when we live out in the middle of nowhere with spiders and other such animals. I guess, I'll have to get used to it though. If nothing else, I'll just drive the 5 minutes to one of our professors home and chill there for the mean while. I say professor, because that's what Brotyher Nate is. He teaches Economics at BYU-Idaho. Michael and I both took his class the semester he was looking for a baby sitter. Michael and I "applied" for the job and got it. Since then, we have become close friends with both him and his family.
Tonight we got a call from a member of the Bishopric asking if we would like to speak in church on Sunday. Does anyone really like to speak in church? I mean everyone except High Priests....? We'll see how that goes too. We have only been in the ward for about a month now, but officially only 2 weeks. The same day we were "sustained" as new members of the ward, I was sustained as the Primary Chorister. I hope that Heavenly Father can help me with this one. Only being a member for about 2 and 1/2 years doesn't make me qualifiedm for this calling. I have yet to know the basic songs such as "Popcorn Popping" and the "Snowman Song." I'll learn soon enough and with a primary program approaching in just a mere 6 weeks, I'll have to make sure the kids know the songs too. Well, that's all for now.

I finally have more hours at work. I hope that means I can spend less time at home doing nothing. We'll see though. Instead of working just in the pharmacy, I also cashier. It seems pretty interesting. Learning all those produce codes will take a bit of practice, but I should have them down pretty quickly. Not too much more to say.
