Summer 2011

Well it has been a good 2 months since my last blog and I figured I would update everyone on the Maclean Family Summer. Andrew and I made the big move up to Calgary for the summer in order to sell and although it is such a blessing that my husband is such a good has been somewhat of a trial for me. Most days Andrew and I enjoy the luxury of sleeping in and slowly getting ready for the day, we head off to the office at 12:30 and I do my office work and he attends his morning meeting and then he goes off selling for the day and I come home. For the past two months I have been taking two summer classes (finance and human resource management) and I will be starting up my Managing in a global environment class next while taking two classes through Athabasca university ( Financial Accouting I and II) ..... Usually I wouldn't be taking summer classes but due to the fact I was doing the pre-requisites for pharmacy for a year and a half ....I was a little behind. No worries though! I fought the UofL and they are letting me take extra classes so I can graduate in the spring after my 4 years of hard time in university. I cannot tell you how excited I am to started making money instead of forking it out in $3000.00 chunks every semester!! I hope to be able to get on with a firm in lethbridge to do my articaling but perhaps I will have to move to Calgary permanently because of a large pool of firms. If not I will just find a job that uses a degree in accounting and start making some moolah! Andrew has decided he wants to go back to school to become a geomatic engineer...or something like that. His brother in law Barry loves it and it looks like he was the salesman in this deal because Andrew now has a vision for his life. Anyways, even with all these classes I am still so BORED. My house is always clean..I think I vacuum more then once a week hahah and I have seen way to many TV series' then I am willing to admit in the past 2 months...all I have to say is One Tree Hill is amazing and 90210 is possibly the stupidest show ever haha! I have read some pretty good books though so if you want a good read try... Lincoln Lawyer, Something Borrowed, Something Blue, Water for Elephants (some not so great language), The Pact, The Heart of the Matter and I have just begun reading The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks so it should also be good! Anyways I have a lot of time on my hands and I don't know anyone but Kylie up here in Calgary so if you are ever up here TEXT ME 403-715-3388.

This past weekend Andrew and I were driving down from Calgary at about 8pm and we noticed that Miriam and Barry were camping....we thought it would be nice to go have a fire with them that night but ended up camping with them! It was such a spur of the moment thing but we had so much fun and it was just what we needed to get us away from all the summer stress and loneliness in my case haha. We played cards...didn't fall asleep till 3 AM because we were scared of bears ( Andrew and I watch a lot of Bear Clips on YouTube) and got Big Scoop Icecream. We went to church on sunday and there were such good talks given! They were about marriage so it was kinda cool that we were there that day. Anyways I better publish before the internet goes out on me! Hope I will get on here more often!
