Here comes the Graduate!!!

We finally made it to graduation. It was a perfect day the weather couldn't have been better. Not a cloud in the sky a slight breeze and the warm sun, the stadium was jammed packed. We had to get there about three hours early just to get a seat it was great.

I am so incredibly proud of you Gerret you did an amazing job this last year and a half and really faced some difficult challenges academically but pulled through and grew in so many ways. Iam so glad to have been here with you and watch you accomplish something great that will help you in our future in ways that we can't even imagine right now. I love you so much babe this has been an awesome year. Although it was tuff at times I am Lucky to have been able to share this with you.

Congratulations Graduate!

The Best Feeling.....

So my last day at work was Friday May 16. For the last year I have been working at Cayuga Medical center as a hospital aide in the operating room. It was a very interesting experience needless to say i have seen some very scary and unusual things there. I am soooooo happy to say that i finally don't have to work there any longer, most know that i hated my job I was very mistreated and stretched to the max. They were really short staffed so I had to do more work than I should have had for the position that I was in. Ithaca really doesn't have many jobs, so you either work at the hospital or Cornell not much to choose from.

I ended up with the hospital believe me I would have left after the first month but it's SO incredible hard to find jobs in this town when you find something you have to keep it. It was the best feeling to me to walk out those door and know I never have to come back and work there again it was priceless to me, Iam sure for those who have had to deal with a job that you just despise completely understand the feeling, it's great!!.

I did meet some really cool people though that made the difference for me while working at the hospital. We went out for a little goodbye party on Friday night. Aside from all the negative comments I have made in the past about this place I will miss some of the people that I worked with. Thank you so much for helping me get through this year at work, I can honestly say it was one of the hardest and emotional jobs I have ever had.

Happy Birthday Gerret!!!

Happy Happy Birthday Gerret!

It was on Monday May 5 Cinco De Mayo! We where able to do a surprise birthday BBQ party for him without him finding out, which was awesome. He was completely clueless and didn't even see it coming. I will admit I am proud of myself for keeping it a secret, well i only had to keep it a secret for 24 hours but that was hard enough. I can't hold stuff like that in it's just to hard for me plus I just get to excited to have it happen already. Thank you all for making this work out so well in such short amount of time. the only thing i didn't do was take pictures of everything so I only have one picture, I will have to try to snag some from other people. I know this is written past Gerrets Birthday but I wanted to post it anyways. We have been so incredibly busy with work for me and school for Gerret that I haven't had the time to do much with the post so better late then never right.
We are on the count down only 17 day left and two finals for Gerret till we leave Ithaca New York and start on our long drive back to sunny San Diego which we are happy to announce that we are moving back to. Unfortunately we are still figuring out the job situation so until then we will keep you posted.
Okay so there are somethings that we will miss about Ithaca the summers are amazing this is the time to be here, all the out door activities that you can do the hikes the lake the gorges it really is fun, the fall is beautiful there is just so many colors everywhere, and most importantly the friends and relationships that we have created while here at Cornell. We are so thankful for the friends that we have made here I don't know what we would have done with out them especially through the 7 months of the insane winter here. We will miss you terribly=(..
