So, I thought I would give a brief update on my life since it's been a while and so much has happened. As far as work goes, it's a lot better. I'm feeling more comfortable with everyone the have all been really helpful as time goes on. They even made me a cake for my birthday! David's brithday was great and delicious:) Life in general has been great and my birthday was the highlight of the last few weeks! It was a total surprise! He took me to the spa in the morning where I got a wonderful body scrub and a manicure!..the first manicure of my life because he hates my nails..haha. It was great! He then picked me up and we went home and had a cake that he made while I was at the spa..how sweet;)....then just when I thought the day was over we went down to defiance point zoo! It was a great day for the zoo and I couldn't remember the last time I had gone to one. It was so much fun and it was so nice to spend some much needed quality time together. We then went out to dinner and had a lovely evening together. I had the day off from work which made the day even better! I can't thank him enough for a memorable birthday. Well....we're about to go to the supermall right now to get him a glove for the summer.....I think I should shower....................see ya!

Light at the end of the tunnel
Well, it's been a month and a lot has happened. First and foremost, I accepted a new job! I start on Monday and I'm counting down the days. I'm really excited about it and I know I'll be working with a great group of people. I could go on and on about it but I won't. David's birthday is next Wednesday and he is dreading it. I am excited about it! Don't know any definite plans yet, but we'll think of something. I feel like the weeks are flying by (except this week). Starting Monday I'm sure the weeks will fly by again. Things are going great in Washington and I really can't complain. Do I think about home...yes. Would I like to visit with my parents...yes. Would I like to see old friends...yes. Do I want to bring David home with me soon and show him where I'm from and all of my friends...yes;) That probably won't be happening for a while unfortunately but it's fun to think about. I haven't even been here a year and I feel like I've been here forever. All in all, things are looking up and they better not let me down!!

On my mind
This week hasn't been the best week of my life, but it hasn't been the worst. One thing that has been on my mind recently is how much I miss my friends and family back home. I have friends here, but they are David's friends and everyone is so much older than me. I haven't really met anyone my age and work doesn't help that situation. Shellie is my only friend that I have made on my own, but she is 40 and has 4 kids and lives on Bainbridge....we are going to the Rascal Flatts concert on March 4th though which I am excited about! She is awesome though and we pretty much talk about everything. Things with David are going great and it's so nice to have someone to come home to and someone who cares about you when you're so far away from everyone else that cares about you. I've been talking with my parents and sister a lot more lately which has been great, but what's sad is I can't help but shed a tear when I get off the phone with them. Same goes with my girlfriends back home. I miss them so much and they have really been true friends. I hope I get to see them soon, but for now I have to settle with just memories.......and the occasional phone call and internet chat:)

No, this post is not going be about whether I love Valentine's Day or not. All this post is about is the great news I received this morning. I PASSED THE CRIME LAB TEST! What a great present;) Interviews will begin in the coming months and I am hoping for the best! I need this! Anyway...that's all...and no, I don't know what's going on for Valentine's Day...we haven't talked really talked about it. ;)

I found it!
Well, it's been a while hasn't it. Not much new going on in my life that I think people would care about.........not saying you will care about this but since I am sitting here waiting for a bag to freeze....which takes an hour.....I thought I would write about my latest accomplishment. So, I have been riding the train/bus into work everyday for a good month now and I am loving it. It takes an hour and half to get into Seattle, but I get to sleep on the train and my body is getting used to getting up at 5:30am for my job which starts at 8. However, the train station can be confusing and you can easily get turned around down there if you don't know where you're going. You think that following the crowd would lead you in the right direction....but that is not always the case. So, I get off the train in the morning and head for the 70 bus stop. I didn't know any streets or where anything was down there a month ago. I think there is a bus for every number from 1-600. So, I studied the 70 bus route map for an hour the day before trying to figure out where it was. The first morning, I walked around for a half an hour trying to look cool and know what I was doing, but I was actually scared and lost. I was all over Jackson street and almost down to 1st ave and then back up Washington and cutting across on that 2nd ave extension until I came across the stop at Prefontaine...which is not a good place to be for a young white female since that is where a lot of homeless people sleep...so I found out. The next day I found out a shorter way to get to Prefontaine, but I kept noticing people were on the bus before me so there must be a stop before this one! So, to make a long story short...this already long enough story shorter, today I found that first stop and wouldn't you know it, it's like 100 feet from the train station. So, instead of walking a few blocks....now it's right there.....................it only took me a month!

Well, it has finally happened and I couldn't be happier! The move in with David is official, however, I still have to pay rent at my old place until someone signs the lease, but what are you going to do. We (pretty much 99% David) have cleaned up the cat room and should be hauling stuff up there this weekend. I say 99% David because it is true, and because I seem to mess something up everytime I touch something. So our, schedules haven't been exactly the same lately because of the room...he stays up all night and I sleep all night...I wake up..and he goes to bed...it sucks but that will hopefully change soon;) The moving itself went well..we filled a Uhaul and 5 hours and a hundred bucks later it is complete. I know that I have pretty much lived at David's for the last 5 months, but it really is different when you actually "move in". Don't get me wrong, I am happy and excited and things are going great, but it's still weird to call it home and not David's...it's still weird to actually put stuff in the closet and keep it there.........all of those things kind of hit you, but I'm too happy to really think about it.

Christmas Weekend part 2
Well, it is now Tuesday and the weekend is officially over because I am sitting at work once again. The weekend went as well as it could. We never made the gingerbread house :( It was so busy that we didn't get to half of everything we wanted to do, but that is okay. Sunday night at David's aunt's went very well. Good food and of course I got to meet more people. However, I think the dessert did me in because Sunday night I did not get any sleep due to my damn stomach. We had a gift exchange with David's friends and I got a handheld Suduko electronic game which was pretty darn sweet. After that we went to Denny's and I ate still more crap but it was good (except the chocolate milkshake sucked). Monday we were at David's and I got to meet more people and eat a lot of good food. When everyone left around 8 or so David and I opened our presents to each other and my family. CSI season 6, Ice age dvd's, a bath and body bath robe, some clinique, and earrings from my sister:) David loved the neon seahawks sign that he's known about for 2 months which I was happy with and for the first time ever I received diamonds. Let alone me not owning any jewlery, I received diamond earrings which immediately I started crying over even before I opened the box. I wasn't expecting anything like that and I was so happy I didn't know what to do with myself. I also received some pretty cool quality earrings from him which of course I had to try them all on right away. (I need the practice because I suck at taking them out!) So I must say this weekend was a success. No crazy drama to report besides me missing my family and wishing they were there...and the incredible presents!
