Yesterday was eventful.. to say the least. For the last month Rob has had these random chest pain moments that make it hard for him to breathe. They usually pass within a few minutes though. Yesterday however was a bit of a different story. The chest pains were so bad he was having trouble breathing, couldn't even move for about 5 minutes.. and when he did he said we need to go to the ER. The episode lasted somewhere between 30 minutes and 40 minutes, way way way longer than normal. About 5 minutes after we got to the emergency room the pain subsided. So we sat for an hour waiting to even be called back. [Let's just say I am glad it wasn't a life or death situation.. because we waited far too long in my opinion.] By that point all of the symptoms were gone but we went back anyway as answers are definitely needed. There we sat for another 2 hours. They did an EKG and some x-rays, which both came back normal. The doctor concluded that it does not have anything to do with Rob's heart and that he does not think it is serious. What he does think.. it has to do with his rib cage. So he got some pain meds and discharge papers. He is supposed to follow up with his regular PCM to maybe get more answers. So if you can.. say an extra prayer that we can get some better answers other than.. I think it is your rib cage. Not that I don't have crazy relief regarding it not being serious.. it would just be nice to know more of what exactly it is.

Other than THAT, Rob is doing good. We've settled into our reenlistment decision and are now looking towards promotion again. Along with that Rob is picking up new "job titles" within the Army that he is constantly in one class or another for. When he isn't dealing with the Army we have fishing, talking about fishing, talking about trucks, talking about boats and watching TV shows like Pawn Stars, Top Gear and American Picker. My life people, and I ain't even stretching it!

Then there is me.. between school and TV, I am swamped man. ;) I talked to my adviser the other day and as of now I am scheduled for the July session at DeVry to be my last. So by the end of August 2013 I will have my Bachelor's. To see the end in sight is such a HUGE sigh of relief. You all really have no idea!! When I am not doing school work I joined a club on post, have had a few friend dates and generally being a fur mom. I've been applying for jobs and so far not looking so good.. I had an insurance company call me for an interview/information session.. but it was kind of like a glorified Scentsy/Avon/MaryKay scheme and I'm not too thrilled about that as of now. So the resumes will continue to be submitted until luck is in my hands! On the bright side we only have to worry about Rob's schedule so far when it comes to this winter and the holidays! Finally I've been working on getting the house done, right off the bat..

Which brings me to my final thing. Sunday I posted about the entryway being postponed.. well my local consignment shop (Grovetown Consignment, if you are in the area!!!) is ran by this awesome lady who was willing to trade me this AMAZING bench for the stinky one I had purchased. So we picked that up today and my wonderful husband is going to help me strip it and get it ready to be moved indoors. I'm so excited, you all have NO IDEA. So that's where THAT stands. I'm probably going to decorate the rest of it and then create a post, because I am not quite sure when we will get the bench finished as of now. Let's put it this way.. I may make it a goal to leave one thing unfinished in each room, to have an update post, if you will. :)
And that's pretty much that y'all. I knew there were some friends on Facebook concerned about what went down last night after seeing our status posts last night, so I figured I better do an update. I know it is kind of mundane for the rest of you.. but I'm hoping there are SOME people that care!
