A Real Adult

I know I am getting to be one of those crazy bloggers, who blogs more than once a month.

I wanted to take you on a tour of our new apartment, but couldn't bring myself to take pictures of our messy apartment. It has been a crazy week of papers, homework, labs, and work. I feel like I am drowning this week because a huge paper looms on the horizon for Monday so I actually haven't spent anytime cleaning. 

Let me take you on an adventure for today.

I woke up and not 10 minutes after I woke up I had a phone call stating I owed over $800 for lab work I had done back in February.

Excuse me....that isn't a typo. over $800 almost $900.

Before I even got off the phone I could feel my throat closing and the sting of tears in my eyes. We don't have that kind of money to spend willy nilly.

So I got off the phone and immediately called my mom for our insurance companies number. I called the insurance company and was told they wouldn't approve it because they needed more information.I had them fax my dr the forms needed to prove it was not preexisting.

At this point a feeling of relief came over me, but I still had this huge knot in my stomach.

I called the drs office, who had not recieved the forms, but they directed me to the lab that did the work for possible decoding issues. I called them, called my insurance, called the dr, called the insurance, and called the dr. After four hours of calling and playing phone tag I think I have the entire situation taken care of. Due to this I have been running behind all day.

Obviously one thing can through a kink in my day.

All of this had me starting to think about a lot. Now that James and I are married life is real. We are no longer playing this game of being in school, escaping reality, living off the fruit of our parents. Instead we are working hard, playing hard, and moving toward an end goal. That was scary to me, the fact that we are expected to live life like adults now.

Basically this is me Megan, the real adult.

Life in the Fast Lane

The best moment of the day happens to be when I walk in the door from a long day of school or work and James is there. It makes everything worthwhile I guess.

Like the fact that we rarely see each
Or that we both spend an amazing amount of time on homework, labs, and at work
Or that life likes to throw curve balls our way

I think about where James and I will be 10 years from now? What life will be like then. It makes me think that yes these next 4 years +/- 1 will such, but after them we will be done with school and it all will be worthwhile.

Again I am homesick, it is that time of year again when Holidays happen monthly and the weather starts to get colder. It would easier if we lived next to our families. With Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas coming up I keep looking forward to a break. I love the week of Thanksgiving, I often feel like my classes are a joke and can't wait till I get to spend at least two blissful days of relaxation. I am hoping for at least 4 maybe 5 this year.

House Guests Among Other Things

We are done. We finally moved from Wymount to our lovely little abode on 500 N. I love it, and it is beyond perfect. Instead of feeling like I am living in a dorm room I feel like I am living in a home.

At the ripe old age of 23 I finally had my first house guests in my home (good thing we have that separate bedroom and a couch). James' old mission companion and his girlfriend came down for the weekend to go to the BYU game, see family, and spend time with James. It has been fun, and interesting so far. As soon as I found out I was freaking out, and didn't know how to react to the possibility of me being responsible for two other people's fun times for an entire weekend. So far so good, I tried to think of everything.

Positives and Negatives For the Past Week
+ All Done With Wymount
- Had to move out of Wymount and Clean it (I am sure I still smell like cleaning supplies)
+Its General Conference Weekend
-We have an apartment full of boxes and have no time to unpack them
+ We have house guests
-/+ We gave them our tickets to the BYU game, so we missed the amazing ending to the Utah State vs BYU game.
+ Which means in 24 days I am going to be in a classroom, teaching
- I am nervous
