'Cause after loving you, I will never be the same.  
Man, I love that Bridesmaids is back on HBO. I am obsessed with this movie. And now I can watch it whenever I want! Or until they take it off HBO again...

I finished up my graduate classes for the summer semester. These were classes three and four out of the ten that I need to take to get my Masters of Science in Taxation. I registered for one course this fall, will take the spring semester off for busy season, and then take one more class in the summer before my wedding. I would take more courses, but it's not the time commitment that scares me, but the cost of it. Each course is costing me over $3,700, and with a wedding coming up, I need to find a balance between saving money and doing what I need to do to finish graduate school and further my career. I am grateful that my company reimburses for a portion of the costs, but there is still a significant amount that comes out of my own pocket. This plan seems to be the most reasonable and logical for me.

It is nice to see when your hard work pays off. We had our annual reviews at work last week. Not only did I have a good review, but I was pleasantly surprised to find out that I got a promotion! I am now a senior tax accountant! As a senior, I have the ability to delegate work to be prepared by associates and then review that work. I will also have more opportunities to train and be trained, have more client contact, and become more involved in different aspects of the firm. I am very excited (and extremely nervous) about the increased responsibilities and new opportunities. For the most part, my responsibilities won't change too much until the start of busy season, since the client work has already been established for the year and will be redistributed before the start of next year. Tomorrow night, my practice group is taking me and the other people promoted out to dinner to celebrate. After dinner, I am supposed to go to the movies with my sister.

I must also say how proud I am of one of my bridesmaids, Sarah. She recently passed her boards and is now a registered nurse! She also got a job in the ER at the hospital. I couldn't be happier for her!

This weekend, Benny and some of his friends from home are going up to Paul's summer house on Pleasant Pond for their annual gathering. For me, as long as the weather is okay, I am hoping to take a trip up to Old Orchard Beach and camping for a night with a couple of friends. Next week, Benny and I are taking a few days off and going up to Sunday River for a little mini vacation. I cannot wait for that.

Until next time, God Bless.
