Way To Go Russell!!!!!

Today we found out that Russell is in the Top 10 students in the Accounting program at Western Washington University in the College of Business and Economics. They are going to honor him and all of the other students and accounting awards at a banquet in the middle of May.
It is a dinner that he usually goes to each year, but this year he is invited to go for free!! Which of course we love. So this means that Russell is amazing and will graduate with a extra award.
We are very proud and happy for Russell and all he has accomplished. Oh and he starts at Lowe's tomorrow, so when I told him to get a job... he really did go get one. I love how motivated he is!!

Life is Crazy

Life at Washington Mutual is crazy!!! Construction has commenced and is going... Hopefully we will have carpet tomorrow. Today it seemed like we were working in a warehouse, it was echoey and cold. Some places they were able to get all of the tile off the floor, but others they could not get the glue stuff off, so the floor is not even flat. It made it really hard to walk on especially if you were wearing heels or using a cane. Anyways, so now we have a teller drawer and give out money instead of printing a receipt and having the customers pick up the cash. It is a lot different, but we all love it and the customers seem to like it too. And they don't get as confused anymore, which is nice.
Russell is still doing great in school and will get A's this quarter, even though he doesn't think so. We still plan on him going to the University of Washington, he is already making connections so that he can get a job for the fall of 2010. He is the best husband ever. He also got a job offer from Lowe's for the rest of the school year and the summer. When he told me it cost $17,000 for his grad school next year, I told him to GET A JOB!! We shall see where things go from here...
