Almost Done

Well the summer is almost over, my last semester of classes start on Monday August 18th. This means that I will be heading back to Grand Junction on Sunday to live with a Friend of mine to finish school. Brad and I know this is the best way to finish things up for school but it doesn't mean we are happy about being away from each other for 3 1/2 months.

You will all be happy to know that Brad has finished his first week of work with Cache County, he even went to work today armed and in full uniform. He is really enjoying it, learning alot, and having a great time. I am so proud of him and how hard he is working, especially since he has had to be at work at 7am which is new for him.

I have one huge victory to declare, I finished the thank you notes from the wedding today. Whew!!! I am all for Thank you notes until I had to write out about 150 of them. Here is my hint, if you are taking a gift to a wedding reception, write your name legibly and include both first and last name to make it little easier on the bride.

Wish me luck as I head out to finish up school and keep Brad in your thoughts as he learns a new job.

Jobs beginning, jobs ending, and school almost done

Guess What!! Brad will be starting with Cache County Sheriffs Department on Monday August 11. He will be working in the jail babysitting all the people who have a hard time behaving themselves.

I will be finishing up my internship with Target on August 8. I presented my project finding to the store managers in the area and the district managers on August 1. It seemed to go well I got alot of positive comments. It has been an interesting summer. I have worked with every team in the store which has meant going in to work at 3:30am and sometimes coming home at 11pm. So needless to say it has been a little crazy but lots of fun.

School starts again on August 18, I will be returning to Grand Junction to finish up my last 4 classes and Brad will be staying here in Logan. While this is not the option we really love it will take the least amount of time and cost the least amount of money. I figure if military wives can say goodbye to their husbands for 6 months to a year, I can tough it out for 3 1/2 months. Especially since we can see each other on the weekends and talk every night.

We have had a nice weekend off of work, sleeping in, working out, going to dinner, watching movies, playing minature golf, hiking, going to Brad's nephews baby blessing. It has been fun.

I got to go to the BYU Women's Football Clinic on Thursday and can I just say I am impressed with the program, with the players and with the coach. Coach Mendenhall gets it, he understands that as players for BYU they are equated with the church, so he holds his players to a high standard of behavior both on and off the field. The highlight of the evening was sitting on the fifty yard line of LaVell Edwards stadium watching highlights from the 2o07 season on the jumbotron. Very cool.
