Brad and Elisse came!

I know this picture is ancient, but I didn't have a lot of options....

Brad and Elisse had to deliver furniture for the company Brad works for, and lucky for me, they had to stop in Reno! It was so fun having them here. Elisse is 8 months preggo! So strange that 99% of my friends are either married, married with children, divorced or wishing they were some combination of the three. I'm still single.... woopty friggin dooo.

Novocaine on tap!

So, I don't know why I didn't start blogging about work before, because seriously, I work with the most amazing people on the planet. Huh-lar-ee-ous.

My job is pretty simple. I answer phones, schedule patients, file charts, pull charts, pour up models, confirm appointments, water plants, order lunch, pick up lunch, eat lunch, file more charts, confirm more appointments, answer the phone some more, punch some numbers in the calculator, and then the best part, I go home to hang out with

Anyway, everyday there are numerous funny conversations... today it was about lying.

I am taking a class through independent study and although it is sucking my will to live, it is pretty interesting. I told Heather, the office manager, that my text book says that all lies are bad, and that even white lies are deceiving. She immediately said "Well, what about when someone has an ugly baby?"

Well, it is in situations like this when I personally would avoid Kant's theory...this dude thinks that all lies are equally abhorrent. He believes that we should tell the truth all the time...

What did you "white lie" about today? Hmmmm... I can't think of anything! (Oh, there is one!0

Got me wondering if this was a good movie....

I'm sure it was a big hit.

I have some exciting news! I am moving to Salt Lake June 21st! I am so excited to get going with my life again. I moved to Reno in September the moment I learned that my dad was sick. I literally hopped on a plane, having no idea if I would ever be back. Now that things are getting back to a new kind of normal, I am ready to finish what I started. I will be taking my last two classes at the BYU Salt Lake center, working somewhere, and living someplace. I have not ironed out all the details yet, but I have a lot of amazing friends and family members in Salt Lake who are helping me nail down the specifics. I am very anxious to start this new adventure! I will have my degree in August, and then I can start looking for a job in my field. I love when things work out. I look back at the last 6 months or so and can see how I have been very blessed. I was able to find an amazing job, I was able to make some great friends, and the timing of everything worked out perfectly. I couldn't have planned it better myself.

I don't know if anyone is the same as me, but when I am stuck in limbo, I have a really hard time making decisions. I knew I had a plan to finish my classes, but that plan just wasn't really working out. I was bored to tears with Independent Study. I love Reno, but I need to do things the Elizabeth way.

I have really enjoyed my time here in Reno, but something has been keeping me from getting totally involved in life here. I always had a feeling that I wasn't going to be here very long. I think now that I know what I am doing, things will start to go a lot smoother.
