So its been quite a while since I've posted anything. I still don't have the cord to plug in my camera to the computer to upload any pictures so I'll just review. So since Feb, I took my national board and passed! I also took the WREB which is the clinical part where you have to clean a actual patient and I got a 99%! Finding the patient was so stressful, I had a guy named Candy (Candelario) but I didn't have a good feeling about him so last minute I called a friend who had taken the test the day before and asked if her guy could come in again to get another part of his mouth clean and then Candy could be a back up for someone else. The next day my blood pressure was through the roof, my friends patient came in for me (he looked EXACTLY like my uncle albert but with no hair it was so weird to hear him talk and not hear my uncle alberts voice) and Candy never showed so I would have been up the creek if I hadn't called this other guy. It went well and then we had graduation. Mom and dad were able to come to my banquet and visit san antonio a bit while Phil studied for finals. After Phil got straight A's again we made our way back to AZ. I took an anesthesia course that was 5 days and for 4 days straight I got and gave 8 different injections spots. it sucked. Then for that WREB Phil was my patient (what a guy I know) he only got 2 shots though and I passed. So while I was waiting for my license to come in for AZ and TX I worked at my dads office while Phil studied for the DAT. All his studying paid off bc he got a 19 (for those who don't know, thats good!) Also while we were in AZ, Phil, my dad and I started doing INSANITY. its a work out video that kicks your butt everyday.

So I'll just say right now that I have tons of pictures from this weekend, but lost the little cord that connects my camera to the computer, so when I put them on in like another 6 months just read back to today and it will all make sense. It's been really hard to get away this semester, Phil's taking 3 classes with the labs and I'm in my last semester and all my teachers are trying to cram nutrition, dental materials, ethics and contemporary in before National Boards on March 15th. So we are pretty busy, but Friday the 12th we got tickets to go to the San Antonio Rodeo with Foreigner playing afterwards. The rodeo was so fun and it is cool to see it all in person. There were tons of vendors and things to look at along with rides and stuff from the fair. I was a little nervous for the concert because I usually just go to concerts where I know the songs and I didn't think I knew any. Turns out I knew a couple of the 80's songs that rung a bell and it was so entertaining to watch this guy run around the stage with his tamborine acting like he did back in the day. He had on his skin tight pants and flowy shirt which made all the difference. Saturday we did lots of studying in the morning and then at night we went to the nicer restaurant in Beeville (which was pretty impressive considering it was here) and then opened our presents. We're both not very good at keeping presents until the actual holiday. I got Phil some chocolate covered strawberries, cream soda (his fav) and the new OneRepublic cd. He got me some fabulous chocolates and Time Travelers Wife, which we watched when we got home from dinner. On Valentines we went over to some friends house and had a little potluck of treats and watched the All Star Game and played games. Romantic I know. So today being our anniversary I had class this morning and Phil has class til like 8pm tonight. So I think I'm going to clean up around here and make a nice big dinner. I can't wait to be out of school (and have money) to make our anniversary a little bit more memorable haha. Anyways that is all I have for you, sorry about the lack of picture. Maybe I'll stumble upon the cord while I clean!
