I have never seen so many people in one place in my life! I can't believe how excited I got as the lights went down and I was waiting for my first glimpse of the guys that ruled my world for a very large chunk of my adolescent life. I have no idea when I have ever had so much fun or screamed so loud! They were amazing and the crowd was amazing! Words can't explain, but I can't wait to get another opportunity to see them again, and I have already informed Phillip that I will be spending what ever it costs to get my sister and I as close to the front as possible!!!!
SOOOO glad you guys are back!

I don't really have anything interesting to report, just thought I would share some pictures of the first use of our fire pit! We had plenty of sticks to burn after the massive winds that we had about a week ago.

Anyway we had a good time! It was hot, but there was a nice breeze so it was not horrible. Plus they constantly had people walking around with water sprayers to keep everyone cool. Good for everyone who didn't have to worry about a camera in their lap!

I am now a pharmacist! I passed both my NAPLEX and law exam on the first tries. It was a huge relief for both myself and Phillip. I still have to remind myself that I don't have to study or do any homework ever again! That and of course the pay raise is nice!
I do miss school no matter how crazy that sounds. I was reading a pharmacy magazine on my lunch one day and turned the page to an article written by two of my professors. I immediately felt this intense sadness because I realized I was stuck in this horrible job (more on that in a minute) and wouldn't be seeing my friends anytime soon :(
Yes, my job sucks. I have great technicians and a wonderful intern, but my partner.........I can not begin to describe how horrible she is. My favorite is when she says other people need psychiatric help. I just can't believe she doesn't see how crazy she is! But it is not only her, many of our customers are huge problems. I have never seen so many CII scripts ( scripts like oxycontin and percocet for you non pharmacy people) in my entire pharmacy career. And they all want a certain manufacture for a certain price. And if you don't have it or tell them it is too soon to fill, you better find your earplugs fast because they love to express their unhappiness.
Jocelyn's wedding- I was so excited to see my friends (except for Nancy couldn't come) for the weekend! I don't think Phillip really wanted to go at first, but he had a great time hanging out with everyone and has already asked when we are going back to see everyone.
Phillip's new car- Poor thing had to wait forever (not really) but he finally got to get his car (and I finally get to actually drive my Murano!) He decided on an Infiniti G37 Coupe. It is a KY blue color (not my choice...). He is like a little kid when he talks about it. It is so cute, he thinks everyone is looking at him when he drives by! It is a nice car, but come on, it's no Murano!
We moved her into her new apartment the next morning, set up furniture, and found things she needed right away, but we left her with her second bedroom full of boxes. My dad went back the next several days and was shocked to see the amount of progress she has made so far! I hope she will be very happy in her new little apartment. It is only 15 min from my parents but she still gets to live in her own area and hopefully meet new people, plus if she decides she doesn't like it she is going to have to find some other people to help her move!
I can't think of anything else at this moment, plus I am tired of typing!

Today will also be our last trip to Kobe! I am going to miss that food sooooooo much! I never get tired of it.
Our "official" closing date is Tuesday @4. I say official, but our underwriter has not yet gotten all the paper work finished. They called today and wanted me to set up a salary key. I had no idea what that was and neither did they. But several emails and 20 phone calls later I got the number. I don't even think that it will give them the information that they will need. They want to be able to confirm my graduate intern salary but I think it will only give them my current salary until Kmart changes it in the computer around June 1st. I have already told my sister that we may be bringing a moving truck to her house and moving in with them if something happens at the closing!
Let the packing begin!

I am driving Phillip crazy by asking daily if we have heard anything about our closing date. I think what is making me so nuts is that he doesn't seem to mind that we still don't have a set date or appointment. Our paper work says that we will close on the 27th or 28th. He seems to think that since it is in the paper work that everything will magically work out.
Also, Wells Fargo is still working on our paper work which makes me panic at the thought of them saying they changed their mind and won't approve the loan until I am at my full salary. Again, Phillip tells me he is not worried about it. I can't help it. There is just something in me that likes to know were I will be living in the next two weeks.
I also need to know when I can start packing! I don't want to start to early because where am I going to put all the boxes and what if I pack something and find out that I need it later? I guess I will just have to wait a little longer....

I did do something productive with the time, I mowed the grass, and I am getting ready to start working on some calculations. That always puts me in a wonderful mood......
I leave you with a few pictures of Phollies 2008 and our class cookout at Dr. Lizer's lake house! I love my friends and am going to miss them sooooooo much!

Going to pack now....really.....well maybe after this movie is over, or in the morning.......
Saturday, April 5, 2008
Hopefully I will be able to move easier tomorrow since I have to pack for our cruise and I really need to mow the lawn and pull some weeds in the front of the house!
Sadie is now awake and is asking for dinner, so I should end this now and go take care of her majesty!

One of my friends from pharmacy school, Lindsey and her husband Cortney recently adopted an adorable baby from Ethiopia, but evidently having a new baby, a new job, and newly built house was just not enough to keep her busy! I just read on her blog that they have gotten the go ahead to adopt an 8 year old girl that they met while they were in Ethiopia! I knew when I read the first sentence of the blog that she was about to make a big announcement. I could not be happier for this amazing family! Most importantly I could not be happier for Pacey! Pacey is their black lab, and I am sure that Lindsey is giving him lots of love and attention, but I think he will be thrilled to have this little girl to run around with!

I guess if I ever become nostalgic I should just look at my student loans and that should take care of that!
As good as it will feel tomorrow, I can't imagine how I will feel when I am done with those two little test that will make these four years actually mean something!
Just as a side note, Monday will be the 11th anniversary of the first day that I walked into the pharmacy at Kmart and began my pharmacy career. If I remember correctly, Dave had red hair back then! Maybe it was working with me that turned it white......
It all started with Penny, my black lab growing up, and my grandfather. One of my grandfather's favorite activities was flipping through the channels and yelling at the people on the t.v before flipping to the next channel. When we visited, Penny would always stand in front of the t.v. effectively blocking my grandfather's view and he would always say "Dag burnt, get out of the way two cents". Of course my brother, sister, and myself would always get mad and tell him that her name was not two cents it was Penny!
Many years later after both Penny and my grandfather were gone and I was married, I got my own puppy and of course she was a black lab. I had decided long before I saw her that I wanted to name my first puppy Penny 2cents, but after looking at her face I knew that I could never call her Penny without thinking about how much I missed the first Penny. In the end we called her Sadie, but we kept 2cents as her middle name in honor of both my grandfather and Penny.
In addition to that heartwarming story, this blog is me putting my 2 cents in, so there you go!
