Present Day

Not a whole lot new to report on since graduation, but we’ll bring you all up to speed on our current situation. Kira began working one day out of her week in a different department at Wasatch Mental Health. She is now helping out the Wellness Recovery Clinic on the side, while spending the rest of her week at her normal department (Adult Outpatient). She likes it so far and thinks it will be a nice bit of variety from the rest of her routine. We had kind of a short, boring Valentine’s Day this year. I requested a heart-shaped pizza with garlic sauce from Papa Murphy’s and Kira just wanted a bouquet of flowers (We’ve gotten a little boring in our many months of marriage). I delivered the flowers to her at work and then we went out to lunch. That evening, we curled up on the couch and watched Rudy, which I had just purchased over Christmas and Kira had never seen. For the Presidents’ Day weekend, we had been debating about going someplace or visiting someone, and Kira even considered ditching me and visiting her friend Amber in Nebraska, but tickets were a minimum of $700, so she opted not to go at this time. Instead, yesterday we went up to Draper to help Kira’s sister, Cassidee, with her four boys for a few hours. We got the older boys haircuts and played for a while, and held the twins, keeping them entertained and then headed up to Salt Lake City. Kira and I have always wanted to attend a live session of the endowment and so finally took the opportunity. She invited a friend and coworker to come. It was quite enjoyable. If any of you has the means to go, we highly recommend it. After that, we headed to a wedding reception for one of Kira’s old classmates. We were very hungry, so pleasantly surprised at the delicious food provided at the reception. After that, we headed home. I had another job interview this week, but I wasn’t very excited about it (bad hours). When I heard they had offered it to someone else, I was mostly glad that I didn’t have to worry about it, but then on Friday I heard back from the job I really wanted and they had also offered the job to someone else. Needless to say, I was sorely disappointed. The lady told me I had done wonderfully in the interview and was actually overqualified and recommended I look for a job in Case Management. Well duh. That’s what I’d been looking for and nothing will open up until May is what it looks like. But I thanked her and went back to the drawing board. I’m starting to run out of ideas, and may just go for one of the more lame jobs at least until the better ones open up in a few months. I’ll keep you posted. -Eli
