On the up and up

I can hardly believe it's been so long since my last post on my blog. Life has been keeping me busy these past few months!
I'm taking a break from writing a paper for my class, to write on my blog... I should be getting up to stretch or have a snack, but nooooo... The computer has a hold on me! hehehe

My biggest news to share is that after over 8 months looking (and a handful of interviews) I finally have a job! I start tomorrow at JCPenney. It's part time and entry level, so hopefully it won't take too much out of me and I'll be able to keep up in school as I am now. I can't help but be amazed by how much has changed for me over the past year; this job being the latest upward change of mine.

It feels like my health is finally giving me a rest. I've coordinated with my CF specialists in Sacramento to take over the balloon dilations from now on rather than having to make several trips to San Francisco every month or two. It's actually been a much better plan of action because we've been able to get my airway open just as it seems to be closing itself off, which avoids infections!

Benito and I are as great as ever. With his support and motivation, I got through a class I was seriously considering to drop. The love and support we have for each other is enormous. I can't imagine love feeling any better than this.

I guess that's about all the time I should take away from finishing up my paper, which is due tomorrow by the way! I hope everyone has enjoyed their weekend and is doing well!
