Restarting the 30 Day Challenge! Day 9

I am going to restart the 30 Day Challenge that I started a while ago. I stopped because of my internship and didn't have a ton of time to do it! I hope that my hubby will also start up again!

I love Train! (Can you tell?)

Train in concert!!!!!

So I was in the car today on the way to the bank and on the radio the announcer said, "stay tuned for a chance to win tickets for Train and blah blah." I about died and was frantically looking to see when and how much tickets were while waiting for the bank to deposit my monies! I swear I had looked and they weren't coming to Utah but apparently I missed it or they just added it! Train was here during the 2002 Olympics and some how my parents had tickets and took me along! It was the first concert I went to and I can't believe 10 years later and I will be going to see them again! Yay!!! =) I immediately went to Smith's after the bank and bought their two newer CD's so I am prepared for the concert! The countdown will now start until September 20th!! Woot woot! Until then, enjoy some of their music!

Back in action..kind of.

The past couple weeks have been interesting since school finished and I have been able to resume a some what normal life. I feel like I have all the time in the world and that I can see my family and friends and do activities that I enjoy! But I have realized lately that I have not had the energy or the want to do all the things I want to. I am just tired and unmotivated most of the time. I also am having a hard time sleeping which has been one of the most frustrating things to me because that was one of the things I was most excited about. I go to bed late and I wake up the minute the sun comes up. WHAT THE HECK! I just don't understand it. I think my body is used to waking up so early every day that that is what it wants to do now. I hope that this is only temporary because I want to be able to enjoy the summer.

 I have also been able to go to church which is weird and amazing all at the same time. I think I only went once during my internship and I hated being away from our primary kids. I didn't want them to forget me. Luckily, I have a great husband and some times I got cards from the kids. Well yesterday, one of the kids that had transferred into our class at the beginning of the year gave me a graduation card. He even spent his own money to get it for me. I couldn't believe it. My heart just melted when he gave it to me especially because he didn't know me all that well. I missed these kids so much and I am so glad that I am still a primary teacher with Adam. =)

Anyway...I hope that I can get back to a somewhat normal schedule because I really want this to be a great summer! There is a lot of exciting things going on especially in my family! Hope everyone is enjoying themselves and Happy Memorial Day. =)

Great Strides

Great Strides is this weekend! Please come and join us to make CF stand for cure found. We are so close to a cure. I can feel it! With all the new drugs coming out they've got to be so close. If they haven't already found it! It is a good reason to get up early on Saturday and it is always a blast! You also get in some exercise! ;)

Graduation 2012

I FINALLY graduated from college! It took me 7 years but I did it. It almost felt unreal to me for the first couple days. It wasn't until I was walking across the stage with my sort of diploma that it hit me! No more homework, no more tests, no more school! Let's just hope that I passed my internship class and pass my licensing exam. ;)

This last semester was probably the hardest time of my life. Working everyday was a lot more stressful and tiring then I thought it would be. It was especially hard at the end. I felt like I had done all I could and I was tired and just plain miserable. Readjusting to a normal life hasn't been all that great either. I am already having dreams about school and waking Adam up to ask him about my assignments. I was excited to be able to sleep in and that hasn't happened much either. I think my internal clock is now set to 7 am.

The one nice thing is that I do get to see Adam more and I am not constantly worrying about something or exhausted all the time. The last week was kind of busy with graduation so I hope things start getting more normal.

My plans now are to take my licensing exam on Thursday and hopefully find a job. I have applied to a few places throughout Utah. I don't want to go too far because I want Adam to be able to work at his job and go to school. So the farthest I have applied to is Ogden and Provo.

Also, I should catch up on the baby stuff. Adam won't be able to give his "genetic material" until the fall due to circumstances I am not allowed to disclose on my blog. So we are looking at about September to be able to continue with IVF. Hopefully I will be able to find a job and that way we can be a little more stable financially. We also might do another fundraiser in the near future so look out for information on that.
