This week is test week for Josh. He has been studying A LOT lately and I haven't been able to see him much especially since I started my job; but anyways, so Josh went to bed early (I think it was actually like 9 when he went to bed even though he was shooting for 7pm.) I stayed up later because I took a long Sunday nap and just wasn't ready to go to bed. So, I watch a movie and showered and stuff. While I was in the shower and rubbing shampoo all over my head, I hear this loud beeping noise. It continued to go off for a few seconds, so I thought I better go check on it before Josh wakes up. But as soon as I turn the water off (shampoo still in hair), Josh comes out of the bedroom mumblings and grumblings and hits the smoke detector of the ceiling. So, I guess what happened was that I was taking too hot of a shower and the steam from the shower made the smoke detector go off. How crazy is that? I felt really bad for waking up Josh, but I do think he was able to go right back to sleep. I just thought that it was too crazy not to share.
Ok, so I realized that I never really said what my job is. I am a secretary at Psychological and Behavioral Consultants...(try saying that every 30 seconds when answering a phone). I am kind of excited about it still. After all, it is a job. It pays pretty decent too. I just feel weird being a college grad and only being a receptionist. Also, it gets boring after a while. I just can't wait to be on my own and working in the office that I am suppose to be working in. They are training me in a different office (in Beechwood) and I will be working in North Olmstead. With this whole working thing...a small town girl has had to get used to traffic. I REALLY HATE traffic. Today it took me an hour to about 15 miles. Crazy, huh...back in Stillwater, Oklahoma we didn't have that kind of traffic. Oh well, I have already gotten used to it a little.
Yesterday I got to talk to my mom! Since I have been out here, I have really prided myself on not being homesick and crying. Yesterday though, the whole month's worth of not crying and being sad about it all caught up to me. As I was talking to my mom, all my siblings in Oklahoma were at my mom's enjoying my mom HOMEMADE cinnamon rolls that I LOVE! My nephew, Matthew, was there too and my mom said he is getting big ;(....I am soo sad that I can;t be there to hold him and play with him while eating my mom's cinnamon rolls. My mom also told me that right before I called they were all just talking and saying how weird it was that Josh and I weren't there and how much they missed us. I had a hard time last night, but I was able to keep myself under control and I only really cried in the shower. Oh how I miss my family...the sad thing is that I probably won't be able to see them at Christmas either (no money and won't be able to take off work that long). Oh well, I am sure I will survive. Ok well, i need to get upbeat again and Josh is studying again, so I am going to watch a chick flick!....One more thing, I got a calling on Sunday...I am SUPER excited, but I haven't been set apart yet, so you al have to wait til next week to find out what I will be doing!
