Everyday when I get on to check all the happenings of my friends and family, I promise myself I going to post something. But when your life consists of spending the day trapped in your apartment with your two year old, there's not much to tell. I guess a few things have been going on although I warn you, they're not really too interesting unless you really love us.
Here goes--We survived the first test week of pharmacy school. When I say survive picture two near-drowned people that have just been dragged onto the shore and are gasping for breath and looking ragged. It was rough to say the least. Kevin put in the maximum number of hours each day preparing for the tests that were ridiculously hard. I think it was so frustrating because he didn't know what to expect and it was so much information crammed into a month. As for me, you'd think I was a single parent as much as we've seen Kevin lately. Even when he was home he was locked in the bedroom studying and wouldn't come out for anything. We were both grumpy and frustrated and I was lonely and stircrazy. So we've both learned something from this experience and we hope to come out of the next test week a little better off. We're learning how to handle grad school slowly :)
In other news, my sweet uncle and aunt gave me a job cleaning their dental office. Strangely, I'm excited to have something to do to earn a little money, even if it is cleaning bathrooms and scrubbing operatories. We've also been pretty busy with church functions, mainly because I make a point to go to every single one, just as an excuse to get out of the house and meet people. There are a lot of truly amazing people in our ward that I'm sure will be lifelong friends. I'm also throwing a baby shower for one of my newfound friends. Everyone loves a party, right?
We've also figured out Skype and are loving video chatting with a few family members who have it too, so if you have a webcam and want to chat, call us! Also, if you have any secrets for making the picture not freeze frequently, let us know. Our main form of excitement is our upcoming trip to Utah!!! If you couldn't tell by the three exclamation points, I'm really stoked! We're headed home the first week of October so we'll be there for Conference and to see a little fall weather which is not going to make an appearance here in Cali for another few months--it's still 90 degrees and I miss my crisp fall weather :( Now that I've yacked your eyes off, that's life of late, not much, but it's life!
