The end of the semester has finally arrived!!!! Tomorrow is the last day. I am so excited!!! It has been a busy semester. We also moved to a bigger place. It's a little farther away, but it should work out fine for us. I am hoping to get another job soon. I have had interviews at both Wal-Mart pharmacy and Medicine Shoppe pharmacy. I'm just waiting to hear back from either one so I can finally work more and earn more money. I have been working in a pharmacy job for about 4 years now, so I do have that experience. I just hope the companies see that. As for the apartment, it's a pretty nice place. The only issue that we really have is the color. Everything is green... the walls, carpet, etc. Funny thing is we have a couch that has a green couch cover and our futon also has a green sheet on it. I guess you said that we're going green!!! We do have a lot of land though which is nice. There is also a chicken coop, which we can get fresh eggs from!!! There is a green house that we can grab fresh vegetables from and we have a pond!! It's big enough to have a canoe in it. We have yet to go in the pond, but hopefully within the next few weeks, we'll experience that. The owners of the place are really great and have helped us a lot and have listened too our concerns. I get to paint the apartment a pretty cream color. It's called "Arizona Light." I guess I'm partial though because that's where we're from. Pictures are soon to come... both with what it looks like now and what it will look like in the near future!!

Our Fourth of July weekend was pretty fun. On Friday we went to the Nates' house and watched X-Men. It had been a long time since I had seen it so I was excited. Before the movie though, I helped Maria get packages of meat put together for the next day's dinner. It was some labor intensive work, but we managed. Michael wanted to help too and he did for about 30 seconds. While trying to slice fat off a piece of meat, he slit his finger. I guess that's why women are the ones that need to do the cooking. After all the meat was done, we then watched the movie. We didn't start it until a little after ten, and by then we were all tired. The next day, July 4th, we had to be up early so we could head down to Idaho Falls and get a good spot for the parade. We had "reserved" someone's lawn only because Maria's sister knew the people that lived there. After we set up camp, we headed to Maria's mom's house for cinny rolls and flag raising. It was insane. There were so many people there. We later found out that it was a family reunion for Maria's cousins and the rest of her family. After we all ate, we headed to the parade. That was pretty fun. With Maria dancing in the street, Michael getting into a cop car, and candy getting thrown all over, it was a blast. We then headed to a church building for lunch. Michael and I left after lunch and discovered that some a**hole had ran into our car and left a nice dent right above the driver's side wheel. I was a little pissed. I just can't believe some people. We got back too Rexburg and took a nap. We then went back to the Nate's house and had dinner. About 2 hours before the big fireworks show, we hheaded back to Idaho Falls. This time we went in the Nate's van. The fireworks in Idaho Falls were amazing. I had never been there and after remembering last year's show in Rexburg, I was grateful to be in Idaho Falls. Their show put the one in Rexburg to shame. Overall, it was good and we had tons of fun.
