Shopping with Grandma and Grandpa on Thursday was fun.  I found a bunch of binders and a couple of books at the DI and didn't find any clothes--it was definitely one of those "I hate shopping" days.  We had lunch at the Sunrise Cafe which is right down the road from our apartment and then hit up the Goodwill store.  I'm sure I could have found something to buy in the clothes section if I'd tried a little harder, but I just wasn't in the mood!  After that we went to my favorite shabby-chic store, Zella's, who has shops both in Meridian and Nampa.  She has super-pretty furniture painted in the shabby-chic style, but I know where she gets her stuff, and most of it is overpriced in my opinion.  Maybe someday I will be able to afford some of that stuff.  I found a great book-stand for my altered book projects--it is white.  Grandma went to Grapples by the sugarbeet factory and found a really cute brass-looking one for five bucks!!!  And I thought my $8 stand was a steal!

Beth came over and helped me study today.  It was really great to catch up with her.  I am hoping we can do it again soon.  I am also hoping to do really well on this test because it would be nice to get an A for once!

The weather has dropped about 20 degrees in the last week.  I am getting my raspberry tea out for an evening cup.  Lexie is snuggling with me on the couch and Danny is still working.  It is time to get to studying the antifungals though!  I am contemplating my future in pharmacy, and wondering where I will be in two years.  Already I feel I've grown so much as a person through pharmacy school, but there is still much to learn, I can feel it.  Sometimes I wish it were already twenty years from now and I could skip the insecurity and awkwardness of learning a new career.  I'd also have my dream house and family practically grown.  Now that is a wonderful idea!

This is my blog about life in general.  I hope to post as in a journal...but nothing too personal.

Last week we finished the first module of the year, Infectious Disease I, which covered bacteria and drugs for many different disease states.  I got a C on the module (thankfully)--and will be working much harder on the next one, which covers fungal, viral and other weird infections.  

This coming week we are having a chili cook-off for the school Open House.  Should be a lot of fun.  I am looking forward to showing off the place where I practically live to the rest of my family.  I really hope Danny will get off in time to go with us as well!

Highlights of this summer included finishing up the internship and getting brand new hearing aids, travelling to Montana and to McCall, and meeting my little niece, Lilianna.  She is absolutely adorable.  She looks just like her mother did when she was a baby!

Right now there is not much to look forward to except for Thanksgiving Break.  Until then it will be a lot of hard studying.  This week I have a test, a case study due, and I have to catch up with three lectures I missed on Friday.  Next week I will give an oral SOAP note to my case facilitator, then the following week is our midterm!  It goes by so fast!!!  Before I know it I will be in rotations!
