The end of the road

Today was my last day in Cosmetology lab. With the 3 or 4 Fridays that I have left in my communications class, I will have earned my 2000 hours required for a hair stylist license. So I walked out of the school lab as a student for the last time. I met some really amazing people there who I will truly miss. They are all awesome and I wish them nothing but the best.

I need to finish up my Communications and Nail course, as well as sign up to take my State boards. I am hoping to take it the first week of November. After that I will be free and clear to find a job! Scary! But it is something that I really look forward to. Until then, I'll find a holiday job to keep myself busy.

I don't think it has quite sunk in yet that I won't be going to school on Monday. It's a really surreal feeling.

A Happy Birthday / Anniversary

On Wednesday Jordan turned the big 27! ( Well big to him he calls himself an old man) We had a great time being able to celebrate it. I picked him up after work and we went to Cafe Trang for dinner. Very fun. He also got to open up all his gifts with my family the night before. One of his gifts from me was a Snuggie because he always sleeps with his arms above his head and they get cold, one night I rolled over and touched his arm and I thought he was dead because of how cold he was! It was funny though because he looks like a wizard when he puts it on.

He also got a lot of other things which as always included some new video games of course. Hopefully he had a great birthday and he knows how much everyone around him loves him!
The next day was our 2 year anniversary! It is shocking how fas time flies! We were able to spend the evening at the Anniversary Inn. It is a really cool hotel that has a bunch of different theme rooms. We decided to stay in the Italian Gondola Suite since it has always been my dream to go to Italy. It was a really fun room and we had a awesome night.
Thanks for an incredible 2 years Jordy!

The epidemic hits

We are all going to die!!!!

Or not...But Jordan does have the Swine Flu. He started feeling sick on Tuesday so he decided to stay home. By the time I got home that evening he looked like he was on his death bed. He could barely walk his body hurt so bad and even touching his back through his shirt you could tell that he had a raging temperature. We really didn't think anything of it though. We figured it was just a flu bug that would work itself out.

He felt a little better on Wednesday so he did go to work, however by the time he got home he still didn't feel like he was recovering at all. Today he still felt really sick so he stayed home again. He called the office and found out that 2 co-workers had been out sick the last few days as well and 1 of them had tested positive for Swine Flu.

So we found a doctor that was able to squeeze him in and sure enough he tested positive for Influenza A. What an exciting day. It is hard to see him so sick though because he has always been so healthy. However the doctor assured us there really is no reason to overreact. He is going to be sick for a few more days, it will suck, but he will recover.

Now if I could just get him to stop snorting and oinking as he walks around the house...

A very satisfying weekend

Over the past few days I feel like Jordan and I have been able to overcome some issues that have been causing some stress in our lives.

First of all we finally found a place to live! Yes I am extremely excited since we have been looking around at many different places for weeks. After a rather taxing and tiring search, we decided to rent out this awesome townhouse in Draper. The size is perfect and I really can't wait to have our own place again. The best part is that they allow us to sign on at 3 months at a time so hopefully we will be able to move very easily when Jordan gets a fabulous offer!

And just as exciting for me, I took my exit exams today! Hooray! It is the beginning of the end for me! School is coming to a swift close and I couldn't be more excited about it. I am officially done with my hours on October 29th and after that I will just need to take my state boards and finish my friday classes and I am done forever!

I am also pretty sure that I have secured a job as holiday help at Nordstrom until I am officially ready to secure my license. That will be a great way to get some extra income rolling in and keep me busy until then.

It has been a good week!
