So for the Fourth, we're going to Caliente, NV to see my grandma, which should be fun. They always make a big deal of holidays there since it's such a small town. I'm excited to see my family and eat some good food (hopefully). Last time we went was a year ago, when Erik & I were Engaged. We drove over in the hot middle of summer with no ac, but the year we won't roast! I'm so excited... This is the whole reason I wanted a car with AC. We're bringing Duke and David is flying over to make the drive with us. I'm bringing her a blood glucose meter from work and it'll be fun to actually put what I've learned and my connections to a good use. I mean, i do it at work every day when random people need help, but it'll be nice to see someone I love benefit from using it.

Anyway, we got curtains for teh kitchen. It looks nice. still trying to figure out what to do to redecorate in there. It's a little boring. :)

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!!!!! :o)

Work and Phones

So at work yesterday, my trainer came up to me and said that she had recommended me to the team lead as a trainer (in a few months, of course). That's cool because it's always m-f and $2 more/hour, which will be nice. And when I'm not training, I can still do the phone work. Yeah, I think it'd be good.

In other news... qwest hasn't switched our phone yet. I just talked to them (did you know that you can chat to a qwest person online? weird, huh?) and they said that they'll need to send a repair guy out. annoying, but whatever. The phone line was supposed to be up on tuesday, and it's friday today, so... yeah. hopefully they'll get that taken care of.

I think duke is getting used to the new place. We left him out of his kennel for about an hour while we were at class on the day after we brought him here, and he freaked out. He got into the trash and ate a package of goldfish crackers... and when erik got home, he was barking (he never barks). So he put him in the kennel and he was so scared. He actually pooped in the kennel. But we have been keeping an eye on him and he seems to be adjusting pretty well. We put the divider in his kennel so it would be a bit smaller so he wouldn't poo in it again. Oh, and he always watches Aunt Spazzy's cage... waiting for a tasty little rat morsel. and I dont' even trust enough to open the cage while he's out of his kennel.

So that's my life for the past few days. That and moving out the last little bits of our stuff. Oh! we foudn someone to take the apartment in July! I'm so excited b/c we don't have to pay any July rent. Yay!

Burried Alive

I need a long long vacation.

Between school, work, moving, and a million other things, the last two weeks are ranking pretty high on the "worst of my life" list. To top it off I havent slept, I've been sick, and I'm stressing about money(for no good reason).

The midterm for my CS class was a take-home test with a 48 hour time limit(With 2 points being deducted every hour that its late). I didnt even get to looking at it until 4 hours before it was due, and finished it an hour after the lab closed, which meant I couldnt turn it in until the next morning when the lab opened again. 14 hours late and 24 points deducted means that my best possible score is a C on a test that should have been a walk in the park. For the first time in my life I can honestly say that I turned something in late and procrastination had nothing to do with it. Adding insult to injury, I have another lab due today which I haven't even so much as looked at, which means no sleep today either.

I'll be glad when June is over.

Ok, so we got the second season of the 4400, and I was just looking at the box. Any of you who know my friend, Sarah, Will recognize that there is an exact duplicate of her on the front cover. Don't believe me? Just look: (she's the one behind the black guy in the middle)

K, i am so excited about the 4400 starting soon! It's the best show, and one of the only that I've ever gotten addicted to. If you've never seen it, you've got to check it out. I've got seasons 1 & 2 on DVD.

In other news, I've got to start packing! we're moving in less than 2 weeks now... weird. I want to start by taking all the furniture over, and then get the stuff. I wanna arrange the furniture before the place is totally crowded, but I'm not sure if that'll be possible... we have to be out of here on the 15th at noon... and I work at 1... hmm... yeah, that'll be fun. I work the day before, too. It seems weird to pack everything up. I don't even know what exactly to pack. The only thing I can think of is that the dishes and stuff need to be packe up in boxes so they don't break, but other than that I don't know. We're just going a few blocks away, so... yeah. Weird. I guess we'll be moving most of our stuff out on the 14th, and then clean intensively on the 15th.

Work is also going well. I've been taking a bunch of calls and I really like it. Time passes pretty quickly, and I really like the people. I guess I just really love my job, being able to help people and talk to people all the time.

Well... that's all I got for now. I'm really excited to get to move and have my puppy! :)
