Hello Everybody!

Whadaya know, with a little (really a lot) of help from Machelle I figured this whole blog thing out which is a BIG technological step for me! Justin wears the "techno pants" at our house. Any time there's something that needs to be hooked up or if the computer is acting funny he's the one that figures it out and makes it work.
So, just a little bit about what's going on in our neck of the woods....Justin just started a new round of clinicals at St. Alphonsus Regional Medical Center in the surgery department. As luck would have it, his mom works in surgery and is his preceptor for the next couple of weeks. He's gotten in on some pretty neat cases, but it has it's draw backs too. He "gets" to place catheters on people with his mom's supervision. Talk about uncomfortable! He'll be taking classes for most of the summer too, so I don't think there will be as much time for fishing, motorcylce riding, and camping as he'd like, but I'm sure he'll squeeze it in where he can. Anyway, he's doing great in school and can't wait until next spring when he'll be done.
I just started a new job this week, which I'm very excited about. I'm working for a dentist as an assistant right here in Kuna! It takes me a whole 3 minutes to get to work. No more waking up at 5:15 every moring to get ready for work and face the nasty morning commute! I even have plans to ride my bike or walk on nice days.
We just celebrated our seventh anniversary at the end of March and what a good seven years it has been. I can't believe it's been seven years, but they say time flies when you're having fun. Still no luck expanding our family. Our plans are to just deal with things (and keep our fingers crossed that a miracle will happen) until Justin gets out of school and then we'll really start to "get on the kid stick" as Todd so eloquently put it. The upside to this whole situation is that Justin and I have had PLENTY of time to get to know each other and have a great appreciation for one another and I am very thankful for that.
For the most part things here are flippin' sweet and we are doing great.
