Tonight was Maggie's graduation at PetSmart training. It was a grueling eight weeks, filled with frustration, anger, and exasperation, but we made it! She was actually very well-behaved in the last session, probably the best she's been so far. Here are one of the few good pictures we got of her (Mike had to hold the cap on her head):

It was pretty cute and a fun time for all.

In other news, four weeks and two days til the wedding. Not that I'm counting down or anything.

Work is REALLY slow right now. Softball is over and we didn't have baseball this year, so we are already thinking ahead to football (ugh) and the other fall sports. Next year is going to be so different, adding football and playing in Division III instead of Division I. I'm not really sure what to expect. Oh, we're also adding men's and women's lacrosse as varsity sports in '08-'09. I know nothing about lacrosse, and even more nothing about the stats involved, so that's going to be an adventure.

Also, we're starting to look at buying a house. We met with a mortgage lender last week and we're meeting with another one tomorrow, and we've already been to look at houses with a real estate agent. We'll probably move out to the west side of Birmingham for a couple of reasons: 1) We can afford something much nicer out there and 2) It's really close to work for both of us. So far it's been a frustrating process because we initially found a house that we REALLY liked and found out somebody bought it the weekend we found it. That was disappointing but I think we'll find something else. It will be really nice to have a yard for Maggie and not live right on a busy highway like we do now.

That's about it for now. Probably the next time I post something it will involve wedding pictures. I'm going to be somebody's wife, how weird is that??? :)
