HHHHHMMMM

This week was crazy, this weekend will be... well busy, but not.

My husband is at drill, he comes home tomorrow. I worked today, so it hasn't been so bad to have him gone. Monday we are going to a fair... I'll give you a hint, it's the largest CITY fair in the country. :) It's not a county or state fair, it's the Puyallup Fair (which is a city about 40 minutes south of Seattle). :) It sees millions of people! Last I heard, because of the size of the fair grounds (which are bigger than our state fair grounds) and the amount of people in attendance each year, it had won the title of the largest city fair in the country.

Sadly, we can't go for very long because I have to be home and in bed to be up at 4:20 am for work Tuesday... Hopefully it will not be another 50 hour week. I'm getting drained...

So, two things have been making me want to blog, but also making me want to avoid it... hence the not really blogging (well, that and working too much). First, my job. I have a very controversial job. I want to tell you all what it is, because I really enjoy it. But I don't really want a bunch of people leaving nasty comments on my blog or judging me if they don't agree with what I do... It's been difficult for me. I spend so much time there, I want to blog about it, but I really don't want to deal with people's opinions if they can't be nice, which, in my experience, is half the people in the world.

Second, is my blog title. I'm debating changing it. I am not in the throws of a deployment any more. As of Sept 11, my husband has been in the country for one year (yes, I do see the irony and coincidence of the date). But, at the same time, I don't want to change it because rumors are floating around that he may be deployed again as early as next year. It seems silly to go through the trouble of thinking of something new, creating a new header and layout, just to change it back. I really like the title for my deployment era blogs.

So, I've been spending a lot of time thinking about those things. We'll see what I can come up with...

Also, I am aware that the background of my blog does not show up anymore and hasn't for a while, I just haven't had the time to do a new layout. I promise I will... Eventually.

Graduation

I will try to post pictures of my graduation tomorrow. :)

I will say that it was very well put together and I had a great time seeing all my friends from school.

Oh, and I got honored with an award for academic achievement for having the highest GPA in the program! That was pretty cool!

I'm finally done!!!! WHOOHOOO!!!!

Sick

I've been MIA lately...

I'm working 50 hours a week at work, I'm stinking exhausted. But, I play with baby monkeys, so it's not so bad.

I got sick last weekend and ended up sick all week. :( I'm still not feeling well, but today is my graduation ceremony and I'm not missing that!

I have a party tomorrow, but hardly anyone is coming. :( I'm actually pretty sad because I only have four people coming to graduation today and hardly anyone coming to my party... I should have known, I don't have the greatest friends. They are not reliable and, really, I hardly ever hear from any of them, but I guess it doesn't stop you from being disappointed that no one is coming to your graduation party. And I shouldn't really count on much family to come.

None the less, I'm stoked to be graduating and happy to have a job I like so far. We'll see how I feel in a few more months of working 50+ hours a week.
