Fired before I could be hired

It's summer break and I have one objective, find a Medical Assisting internship.  This has been my mission for the last few months and so far I have had little luck.  There are a few options but the timing is not what I hoped.  My new plan is to get a job.  However, if you know anything about finding a job in Rexburg, then you know that if you are lucky enough to find a job, be prepared to get paid almost nothing.

Yesterday while I was searching Craigslist I saw a listing for a nanny position with a fun looking family with 4 little girls.  The pay wasn't bad and the hours were good so I was hopeful that maybe this would work out.  I let myself get really excited when I was contacted almost immediately for an interview the next day.

Today, a few hours before the interview the mother called me to cancel the interview because they decided they didn't need the help after all.  She told me that she had been ready to hire me and that I had an impressive resume.  Bummer.

So back to the drawing board.

We don't know how to stay put

We just moved for the third time in our short married life.  Although, as much as I hate moving, it was well worth it!  The last apartment we were in was really cramped and a little overpriced.  We chose to live there because it was furnished, but have since decided that buying our own would be more cost effective.  Our new apartment is at least twice the space, has an extra room, and costs us less!  Another happy bonus is we ended up back in the 76th ward. (Despite the fact that they have already asked us to give talks!)  

Hopefully we will be here until graduation!

The thing everyone asks is, "What did you win??" We got T-shirts, a backpack, personal drink blenders, and a water bottle.

Also, I lost 10 pounds!
