(Marlene Dietrich was an actress and a singer)
The last five weeks have been absolutely nuts! School is great. My first rotation with football is over tomorrow and I am actually really sad about it. I work with the linebackers (some of the most amazing guys on the field) and they are so sweet. They are sad to see me go too. We won Rutgers, lost Wisconsin, won in Toledo, and we just won again 36-31 against UCLA. WE ARE ON A ROLL!! Yay Ryan Mathews for leaping over a guy to score! It was a pretty sweet game! I was supposed to work the Wisconsin game, but I ended up packing my bags and leaving for Utah to see my family. It was a great reunion. Kristi, Jonathan, and I left Friday at 3 and got to St. George, UT by 12:30pm.
It was an easy drive and I wouldn't mind doing it again. I loved seeing my family. DK is getting so big... he's adorable. I hate being so far away from him. The next morning I got to see the rest of my family at breakfast. We went shopping and then we went to see Le Miserables at Tuacahn. It was so pretty and the play was amazing. I have been trying to find clips of my favorite scene to post on here, but the singing and acting aren't as good as what I saw live. I'll keep trying though. Sunday we drove up to Orem to see my little brother. I have missed him soooo much. It's so weird that he is so far away. I wish I could have spent more time with him. We spent the night at Dusty's that night and stayed up late playing Guitar Hero and Rock Band and of course talking for forever. I wish we were all closer. It's always hard to leave, but we did. Kristi and I treid to leave at 5:30, but we didn't get up till 6. Oops...
We met my mom and Terry in Vegas for the most amazing buffet ever! I had never driven in Vegas before and I had no idea where I was going or getting off at. I had to pull a... "Here's my Exit!" It's a good thing we got out of there alive. Anyway, this buffet has everything a person can ever want to eat. I wish I was a little fatter cause there were things I didn't get to eat that I really wanted to try. Ok maybe I don't wish I was fatter, but everything was so yummy.
Kristi and I got back at 8:30 on Monday. The kids tried to surprise her when we got to her house, but I walked in first and ruined it. ANOTHER OOOPS... It was a nice vacation and I decided it was something that we need to do more often. I was really sad that we had to leave. Especially since I had to come home to tests! We won't even get into that though. Let's just say that my teacher is human and makes many mistakes. It's good of her to realize she was wrong and give us the points we rightfully deserve. Too bad we pretty much had to fight to the death though. Oh well, now we are learning about fascial injuries and I am really excited to start getting my hands dirty.
Since tomorrow is my last day with football, I rotate to good ol North Gym where I will be working with Women's Basketball with Mandy. I am really excited to have her as my ACI. I feel like I can really learn a lot from her. Working with a women's sport will be quite different though and I am kind of nervous. My guys are really attached to me so I can only imagine how attached these girls are to their old student trainer. I guess we will see how it goes. It feels like the school year is flying by. It will be Christmas in no time.
My birthday was amazing. It lasted for a whole week. Starting with a birthday celebration in St. George, then CPK in Salt Lake, then Red Robin and Elephant Bar in Fresno. Almost all of my friends from the Athletic Training program came out to dinner to celebrate. It was a lot of fun. Kristi and her family came over on Tuesday, my actual birthday, to open presents. Mom made a really yummy dinner and then we played Star Wars on the Wii. It's a pretty sweet game. I thought I had made it the whole day without crying, but I opened Kristi's present last. It was 2 pictures framed in white frames (to match my room). One picture was our family at the play, but I didn't start crying until I looked at the second picture. It was one of me and Donny. It was the best present I ever could have gotten. Thanks Kris... Mom got me a grip of clothes and some new tennis shoes that I really needed. Especially now that I don't have time for a job so I am poor : (. Donny got me some shorts that I lounge in or wear to bed from his school. He bought them with his very own money. I wear them every day. Thanks bud. Sheryl got me a really cute pug book and a blanket that I sleep with every night that says "My Heart Belongs to a Vampire." I love it. I also finally took off my Tiffany's necklace and put on the necklace Terra got me. I also wear that every day. She also got me a pair of earrings that I wore for my birthday. Tara and Dusty got me a pug stuffed animal. I named her Pugselina. Now pugsley can have a girlfriend. Thanks every one for making this the best birthday ever! I love you all.
P.S. Since I didn't work the Wisconsin vs. Fresno State game I will be working the Fresno State vs. Nevada game on Nov. 7th so everyone watch for me. You probably won't see me, but it's supposed to be a good game anyway.

Anyway, the Olympics has been amazing. I record it everday which means I have to come home every night to watch it because our DVR only has 18 hours left on it. I love the summer Olympics! Swimming, diving, gymnastics, and beach volleyball are my favorites. Way to go Shawn Johnson, Michael Phelps, Misty May-Treanor, and Kerry Walsh. Did we ever doubt any of them? I was hoping Shawn would have won all around, but there is always London and I am glad she is leaving China with at least one Gold. Hopefully our girls diving can actually get a medal tonight in the 10m platform diving.
The training room has actually been a breeze too. I am getting sick of eating at RDH (The Resident Dining Hall), but it's fun every day. There are a few people who have already caused problems, but I am trying my hardest not to hold it against them. Football camp will be over on Saturday! I can see the finish line and I am in a dead sprint to get there. I worked with Soccer today which was totally fun and the reason why I actually get a break and am able to bring you this glorious blog. I also got a pedicure today! Yay soccer! School starts on Monday and as much as I need a vacation, I am really excited to see what this year will bring. I have already have a few sports in mind, but what I thought I didn't want for sure now looks somewhat appealing. We'll just have to wait and see what happens...
As for Twilight. I saw they changed the release date to Nov. 21st or something like that. I can't wait. There are so many things going on this year it's exciting! We are going to Utah the weekend before my birthday and for once I don't mind. I am actually really looking forward to going. I hear there may be a few surprises along the way! Anyway, life is a mess right now so SHERYL don't be angry if I don't blog for some time. I am trying to find balance in my schedule. We will get it figured out. In the mean time, the phone goes both ways. I am always down to text or e-mail. Kristi... tell those kids I love them. And Terra give DK some kisses for me. I love you all!

So, then she started to inspect Sadie. She said her ears were good ; ). But the folds on her face could be cleaned better. Then she saw the stye on Sadie's eye. Sadie has gotten stye's before. Kids get them all the time and Sadie plays in worse stuff than kids do so it's bound to happen. I usually put some baby shampoo on it. It cleans it and it doesn't hurt her eye. She tried prescribing me something for it, but I told her I had already had some medicine. She believed me. I wonder how much that would have cost. She finally gave Sadie her shot which took a whole 30 seconds and then she said everything else was fine. At this point in my head I was already up to $100. I didn't want to ask her a question cause I figured she'd find a reason to charge me for that too. After 45 mins we were done. I walked up to the front desk and found out that my total for the day was $190! I freaked out in my head for a little bit then just paid it. I was ridiculous, but everything had already been done so I didn't think I had a choice. She handed me a bag which I figured was that same stupid heart worm medicine and we left.
When I got home I opened the bag to find more than just heart worm medicine. She charged me $20 for some stupid wipes to clean Sadies nose wrinkles with and she gave me a different kind of heart worm medicine. It doesn't just cover heart worm, but any other kind of parasite as well. The first heart worm stuff we got was $24 for 6 months. So, I decided to look at the receipt to see how much everything cost. Her wipes were $20, her shots were $20, her check up was $35, her heart test was $45, and those stupid heart worm pill were $70!!! I basically got screwed! I didn't even want those stupid pills in the first place! There is no way I am getting her more. So, now I will be giving her them for the next 6 months and she will never be getting them again. I don't even mind paying the $45 for the screen each year, but I will not pay $140 for the pills on top of that $45. STUPID VETS!!

Ashley and Wyatt's wedding was on Saturday. I didn't think I'd get to go because I thought in-service would run late, but we ended up getting a half day. My day started early. I ran to Target at 8am to get "Breaking Dawn," was at the training room by 9. Left at 5 and was at the reception with Kristi and Jonathan by 7:30. It was a busy day! Everything was perfect. It's weird to think that Wyatt, who is only a few months older than I am, is married now. It boggles the mind.
Curtis and a few of his friends came over when I got and didn't leave till late. So, even though I had every intention on attending church, I totally slept through it. I have basically been doing nothing but reading and sleeping for the last 2 days. I am tired, but I am proud to announce that I have finished the 4th and final book of the "Twilight" saga. It was amazing! I can't wait for the movie to come out in December. Of course I wish the books could go on forever, but I guess I will just have to deal with reading them again until the movies come out. I won't let out any secrets, but you will all love it! Anyway, back to work tomorrow and then football camp on the 13th. My new crazy schedule awaits me. It's bitter sweet. I have to start school and spend ALL my time there which sucks, but it's one step closer to graduation.
