any day now!

I spoke with my advisor at school the other day and she told me that they will be mailing out the acceptance letters for the Nursing Program any day now. I am so nervous, I think I have a pretty good chance, but you never know!!!

Here are the rules:
1. Link the person(s) who tagged you
2. Mention the rules on your blog
3. Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours
4. Tag 6 fellow bloggers by linking them

1. I abosolutely cannot fall asleep if the closet door is open. I feel this compulsion to get up and close it. This is not so bad in our new house where the closet is super tiny and the door is usually closed to hide the mess of clothes and shoes that are piled in there. At our last apartment however we had three sliding doors into the walk-in closet and a bathroom door right off our room . All of them had to be closed in order for me to sleep. Oddly though it is okay if the bedroom door is open

2. I have this intense fear of buring the house down. I even have nightmares about it. When I leave the house I check to make sure everything (hair flat-iron, coffee maker, oven) is turned off. Sometimes I will do this .. go outside and then have to come back in to make sure i unplugged the hair iron.

3. I am really forgetfull. I put my keys down and 5 minutes later have no idea where they are. I will have money or something in my hand... put it in my purse or somewhere and then go "wait what did I do with _____.

4. I have the worst perception of space. I run into things all the time. I will turn a corner in my hosue and run into a wall. I wait tables and am continually running into tables. We got this new shelving at work where we keep our ranch dressing/blu cheese/celrey ect (I work at a hot wings place) and there is a shelf above the one we keep all that on now. It didn't used to be there. The first day they put it in i bumped my head on it 6 times.

5. I like to make up stories about people I see. This is especially fun at work where there is a constant influx of new people to invent things about. I somtimes do it for myself too.

6. Cleaning is relaxing for me. I love to do it, but only when its not my own hosue. When I was in high school my best friend Lianna was a total slob. I used to hang out at her house and clean her room for her, I also once cleaned my friend Alissa's room and her sisters house in fact. It's only a chore when its my own house, there I let it get to a certain point and then HAVE to clean it :P

Sadly enough the only person I know who blogs on here is Mykalee and she already did this!

One Whole Year!

I can't believe that it has been one entire year since Joel and I got married. Our one year wedding anniversary is on Monday the 18th of August. It has all gone by so fast. I feel like we just moved to Reno and here we are a year later.

On a side note Mykalee, I did enjoy Eclipse more than New Moon, I have just started Breaking Dawn and I love it. I officially cannot wait for the movie.

Love this series

I finished New Moon... on to Eclipse :) I finished my Organic Chem Class at 10:30 today and as a reward, awarded myself the rest of the day to be lazy and read. I love this series!

Just what I need another book series to get into!

at least this one isn't 11 books like the last one I read!

So I just finished the book Twilight


Absolutely LOVED it. Now I have to go out and buy the rest of the series. At least I am reading it now when all the books are out so that I don't have to wait for the next one to be written. I am not good at that. (Usually I forget that a new one has come out and then don't even read it for months and months after it is released)

On other topics..
The reunion this year was great. It was so good to see all the family (wish everyone could have been able to come) We had a great time.

Summer school is almost done. My last day of class is thursday! Celebration! I will officially be done and never have to take another Organic Chemistry course again in my life (hopefully). At least I am getting an A this time around.

Joel is as usual busy with work :)

Just for Mykalee! Family Reunion 2008!

Almost done!

We are almost finished moving into our new house.. pictures are coming I promise :). It is adorable.. very warm and homey! It even has a hot-tub in the backyard. I love having a backyard let me tell you. I made coffee this morning and sat outside back and enjoyed my coffee in sunshine. This is a big improvement over our old apartment where sitting outside meant sitting on a patio that faced a central walkway for the complex, not to mention a small children's playset and the pool. I am enjoying the privacy of our own place a whole lot. We only have about one more load of stuff to move over from our old apartment and we will be completely moved in. Then all that is left is to clean our old place. I cannot wait to be finished. I do not enjoy moving at all, hopefully it will be a little while before we move again, maybe when I am finished with school.

Moving!

We are moving!.. no, not cities again. Really just down the street. We are relocating from our apartment to a house we are renting for now~ I am so excited to be out of an apartment and into a place of our own (even if it is just rented). It has a backyard and everything! It is just a few blocks from the university, which means I can walk to school. When it is not snowing of course. I will post pictures soon, it is an adorable little house!
