Summer '09

I went to work at band camp for two weeks as a dorm mom. That was pretty fun. I missed Rex like crazy, though. The only thing that would have made it better is if he was there with me. :) I got to hang out with old friends, make new ones, see my family, all that fun stuff. I am currently missing Senior week of BC, but I'm trying to talk Rex into going to see the concerts with me tomorrow night. We'll see....
I got a new position at the library. I am currently a clerk, which means I do all the manual labor and such and only get paid $.20 more than minimum wage. I got the news at the end of Jr 2 week of BC that I got the job that I interviewed for right before I left. I will be starting as a Customer Service Assistant (or CSA) on Monday, July 13! That means that I will do the checking in of books and get yelled at by patrons who don't know how to return items by their due date, but I'll be making over twice as much money and only working half as many hours. I'll only be working 9.5 hours a week, but I'll make approximately $20 more on each paycheck. Good deal? I think so!
Rex and I went up to OK to his family's property for Independence Day. It was all right. I got bitten by chiggers on the first day so I spent a good bit of my time doped up on Benadryl. I love Rex's family most of the time, but sometimes they can be a little too......Republican. If that makes any sense. Or maybe it's not that they can be Republican, it's that they are severly anti-anything else. And I'm also don't really have anything to talk to them about since they mostly want to sit around and bash Obama and say how crappy a job he is doing in the White House. He hasn't even had 6 months yet, people! Give him a break. He's doing the best job he can with what he was given. But anyway, we're back now and I think I'll let Rex go by himself up to OK unless his parents and sisters are going to be there the whole time we'll be there.
That's about all that's going on with us.
