Our 4th was interesting. We were sort of lazy in the morning – I got some more of my research paper done and we exercised. Bisbee throws a big party for the 4th with some very interesting activities. There were a ton of people down there. They had drilling and mucking competitions. The drilling consists of men competing to see how far they could drill a nail into a boulder with an axe. The first 2 people that went were interesting to watch, but after that it got kind of boring. The mucking consists of shoveling gravel into a big bin in the fastest amount of time. All the guys that participated won up to almost a thousand dollars. Not bad. After all that excitement, we walked around and then came home and relaxed. Had crab legs for dinner. Yum! This morning, I awoke to find out that mom and Mike’s CPU had crashed…….with my paper on it. I only had 2 paragraphs to go. Mom said Mike blamed me, then Mike said he never blamed me, so we got over the drama. Hours later, they recovered my paper, I finished it, sent it to my teacher twice, printed it and now can relax again! However, I am not allowed to blog, therefore, I will keep a Word blog and copy & paste into my blog when I get home.
I got an A on my research paper. Yay! I also got my acceptance letter into the vet tech program at SPC. Double yay! I start in August. We went to
Sean and I figured stuff out and decided that he would not take any time off of work. I thank him much for that and I know he is upset that he won’t get to spend all the time with his parents. I actually have the Monday off that they will be in town so that’s good. I can spend some time with them. For real this time, Sean and I have got to stop arguing over stupid stuff b/c even the dumb stuff is starting to wear on our marriage. So, we are going to take things a little slower and take a little bit more time and space from each other so we can figure some stuff out and get our lovey romantic selves back. So, yesterday we went to church. Later on in the day, we went to Mom and Mike’s friend’s house. W did fondue for dinner last night. That’s it!
Gosh, we are just having so much fun here, but it is going by quickly. Isn’t it funny how it felt like forever waiting for July 1st to roll around to get on that plane, but the 2 weeks here seems like 2 minutes?! We are going to move here in the future. We are looking at either moving to Bisbee,
What was our day like yesterday? Hmmm…… I am having a hard time remembering. Oh yah! We went to Chachos Tacos for breakfast (real Mexican food). Then, Mike stayed home and the three of us went to
Another gorgeous day yesterday. The weather has cooled down and it has been rainy and dreary, but it has actually been nice. I guess this is monsoon season so it is to be expected. Mom and Mike drove us up to
Not too much to report from the last 24 hours. Mom paid for us to get massages yesterday for BD presents. I ended up getting craniosacral therapy to help with TMJ. It was a really weird sensation. He would gently place his hands on my spine, neck, jaw, face, inside ears and mouth and barely even move. He did apply a bit more pressure at times, but not really. It’s like I could feel something happening, but I can’t really explain it. It was actually pretty relaxing and I felt myself drifting off. Either way, whatever he did worked, because my jaw feels great now. Then, I went to the salon and got my hair cut and colored and eyebrows waxed. She did a good job, not much of a change from what it was before, but that’s all right. We went down to the Cooper Queen Hotel for Happy Hour. This hotel was built in the late 1800s or early 1900s. We also did a little shopping and bought my Mom and Mike a few things as thank you gifts for being such courteous hosts. Then, we spent the rest of the evening in. I talked to the CPA’s office again about our stimulus check, but it sounds like we didn’t qualify for it, so they say. I think we are going to get a second opinion on the matter.
Sean and I did a lot of stuff on our own yesterday. We all went for a hike up the mountain to a cross and shrines and little crosses that people have left up there for loved ones. It was a long way up and back on a rocky trail. It was a little treacherous. I was trying to imagine doing it with an 80 pound pack on my back like Sean used to have to do. I don’t know how he did it. Then Sean and I went to the
Happy BD to me. YAY! Okay, dorky. My bestest friend already called, love you Tiff! She remembered this year! Hee hee! Our yesterday was absolutely wonderful. We drove to
I am feeling quite sad today and was yesterday too. We went to church. I broke down and cried lots, as did mama. Sean, Mom and I went back to
