its been awhile..

I have had absolutly no motivation to blog lately. I don't even have a good reason why. All the way up until the last two weeks I have not had a ton to do and I have learned to really dislike not being busy. I thrive off of being busy. I feel like when I am not busy I have a harder time getting things done then when I am crazy running around like a chicken with its head cut off busy.. does anyone else ever feel this way, or is it just me? ha.. kinda funny how that works. Maybe its just because when I am busy I am already out and motivated so its easier to do just one more thing...
Ben and I are embarking on a new adventure tonight. We are going down to Seaside, Oregon and I get to start my new job as an RDH in Astoria. I am VERY excited. I still do not know all of the details of my job or anything, but I feel very enthusiastic and lucky to have found a job! I have only met the Dentists once but they seem very friendly and laid back, and I guess I will see tomorrow how the office runs and everything! We are moving to Long Beach, Washington and I will just drive across the bridge to Astoria when I go to work. It is going to be an adjustment but Im super stoked about living on the coast. I love the coast so much. I will go on runs every morning becuase we will seriously live right on the beach.. so if anyone wants to come visit...
I was looking at some old power points back from when I went to school and it really made me miss school. I was even missing midterms and finals.. I know, so weird. I think after tomorrow when I start working some of this will fade away but i really can see myself going back. I crave knowledge, and being tested, and having school friends. Ben and I joke sometimes about me going to dental school, but its only kinda a joke. Of course I would have to go take a couple more prerequisites to apply, and I would have to take the DAT.. but who knows! Its really just a thought I like to play with for now I will work as a Dental hygienist. I have also thought about doing something else too like PA school or something else in the medical field, expand my knowledge some more. In DH school I already had to learn so much about the body and diseases, and pharmacology, and genetics, and anatomy and physiology, I really already have a great base set up for it. But we will see what the future holds...
This last week Ben and I got to go to Utah. We went on a final run to get all of our stuff that we have had stashed in our friends basement for the summer. We got to go to our cousin, Brocks, wedding. It was great to get to see family and everything. It was supposed to be just a quick two day trip but we ended up getting snowed in on the day we were supposed to leave (wednesday), and so we stayed for thanksgiving, and then left on friday. I LOVED being able to see all of my siblings. Five of them live in Utah right now with their spouses/kids. I miss them more now though after seeing them, especially since I don't know when I will get to see some of them again.
well.. now that I have blabbed awhile I will end this with some pictures.
