Quick Update!

Well, I still don't have a partner, which is causing me to have to work more overtime than I would like, but at least it is some extra money! The store is a much better place to work at now, so I guess I won't complain too much.
Several things have happened in the last few months, so I will post a few pics!

In May we went on a cruise!

June was Cameron's 3rd birthday. Oops...I didn't take my camera...We bought him a fish tank! He lost 2 of the 3 fish a few weeks ago :( but I got him a few more the other day :)
June was also Phillip's pics of that either, but here is one of him and his new motorcycle!

July was my pic...but here is one of the blue diamond that Phillip got me on the cruise for my birthday/10 year anniversary(which is later this year). I wish I could say that I get to wear it all the time, but 2 of the diamonds fell out and it is off getting repaired. I hope to get it back in 8 to 12 weeks......

Bailey also had his 3rd birthday in July!!!

This month my sister had her birthday, I don't have a picture of that either, but that is because I was at Martha and Chris's wedding!

And just last weekend Carson turned 1 year old!

I am sure I have left out all kinds of interesting stuff, but our air conditioner has decided to stop working while Phillip is out of town so the added heat of the computer on my lap is just too much! Oh! One more thing! We finally sold the house in Martinsburg! It was one problem after another and the buyer was such a pain that I am hoping the roof will develop a great big hole and all of her belongings will be destroyed in a flood! But really, we are very glad to be rid of it!

It's About Time!

My work environment changed drastically this last Thursday. My partner no longer works for my company!!! My standard answer is "I don't know what happened, I just know she no longer works here". Anyway, I am now the PIC (pharmacist in charge for all you non-pharmacy people). It will be nice to actually get manager pay for doing all the manager work instead of doing it just so that it would get done.
I am thrilled but tired. Because I now have no partner I am working extra, but it won't last forever, and it is sooooooooo worth it.

Just An Update

I have not posted in awhile and I had a few pics to share, so I just thought I would do a quick update!

Everyone is doing well except for some allergies. Phillip is just getting over his "attack" and it looks like I am just starting. It is annoying, but it won't stop me from going to gymnastics tonight! Yes, gymnastics! For everyone who does not yet know I am back in the gym training for 2012. Well, not quite, but we do work pretty hard.

I had taken one adult gymnastics class when we were in Martinsburg and there were several women there, but most were there to gain flexibility or just to do something different. They struggled with cartwheels, handsprings were a very far off goal, and they whined when we did any event other than floor. Our instructor was very nice, but she was not really able to spot adults, so while it was fun I really didn't get the challenges that I was looking for.

A few months ago I sent an email to a local gym asking if they had an adult class and was shocked to hear that they did. I am thrilled to say that it is everything I have been looking for! Jamie, our instructor (I said the word coach in front of Phillip one day and he laughed and told me I was stupid...) is great and I completely trust his spotting and coaching ability. I have actually even learned a new dismount on bars that as a competitive gymnast I never even attempted. We have lots of fun, and they have actually had to turn people away because the class is full. What can I say, I would rather be doing this instead of running on a treadmill.

Phillip and I have also started to go wall climbing about once a week. I don't really see much of a future in that for me, but he loves it and it is good quality time to spend together so I guess I will continue to tempt fate and hope that Phillip doesn't decide to collect on my life insurance policy as he is lowering me to the ground....

Other than that we have just been enjoying life with our doggies, family, and friends!

Here are some pics of my nephews and the newest addition to the family! Don't worry I did not get a new dog. Andie and Tony did! His name is Rocky, he is about a year old, and I think he is more hyper than Bailey ever was! But, he came from a family who did not have time to pay attention to him and I think he will settle down some when he realizes that this is his new (better) home and not just some fabulous vacation!

Quick Trip To Chicago

Phillip had to make a short trip to Chicago and he wanted some company, so off we went! I didn't get to see much but since I only had a few days off before I have to start my 5 long days at work it was nice to sit in the hotel room while he had to work. We did go to the Sears Tower and also got to go to a very nice restaurant downtown with the owner of the company Phillip is working with and his wife.
I think the view at night is better than during the day, but it sure makes taking pictures hard.

I really want to go back in the summer so we can see more and not worry about freezing!

V-day Rocks!

Flowers, a card, some chocolate that I would feel guilty eating, a dinner out.....that is what I was expecting for Valentine's Day. But, this is the second year in a row that Phillip has totally surprised me. When I walked in the first thing I saw was not flowers but an fruit bouquet. Better then flowers! We can both enjoy the fruit (half of it chocolate covered!) and I don't have to clean up the mess when the flowers dry up! Then I saw the jewelry bag........I had not asked for anything so I was a little worried.
Of course I LOVE them, but the best part was that he said he had been waiting for years to get them for me. How sweet!

On another subject, earlier this month Sadie celebrated her 7th birthday. I guess I have made enough doggy cakes for her to recognize the smell because as soon as I start mixing the ingredients she gets excited and then she stands by the oven while it is baking. Somehow beyond a doubt she knows that it is hers!
