We have our first home football game tomorrow morning. Home games kind of suck. We have to be at work at 9 am to get the guys taped and to do the treatments that they want and to get all of the waters and coolers out to the field by noon. The game starts at 1 pm. They won their game last week, so they started off on a good note. Hopefully this season will go really well. Maybe we can even have a winning season this year. That would be awesome. This is a pretty good group of guys so I guess we'll see what their made of.

WE GOT ENGAGED LAST NIGHT!!! MY RING IS SO AWESOME!!! I WAS SO SURPRISED!!! HE DID SUCH A GOOD JOB!!! Well actually he picked a fight with me and slammed our bedroom door in my face and when I opened the door, he was standing there on one knee. Pretty darn tricky huh!?! He knew thought that if he did anything too special that I would know that it was coming. There's so many things to start planning. What will my dress look like? What colors will we have? Who will stand up with us. We're thinking that we'll get married during spring break of next year. So that means March 1, 2008. That's only 6 months and a week. HOLY CRAP!!!

THANK GOD SCHOOL STARTED TODAY!!! I'm getting really sick of watching football practice and soccer practice. It'll be nice to be able to sit at my desk for more than 10 minutes and get some paperwork done. I need a laptop that I can take outside with me so that I can check all the athlete's paperwork in out on the field. That would seriously decrease my time at my desk at night. I actually might get to see Eric before it's time to go to bed. That would be nice to be able to eat dinner with him again.

Eric loved all his gifts. He's pretty easy to shop for. He always wants something. I just have to write it all down so I don't forget. I love ordering stuff off E-bay or the internet for him because he always gets the mail because he gets home first. So I love when I can surprise him with a gift. He's like a little kid when it comes to gifts. He's pretty good and getting me things too. When he knows I'm in a bad mood he'll stop and get me a rose or he'll attempt to make dinner for me. He even offers to give me foot and back massages. He's a great guy!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ERIC!!! Today is my boyfriend's 28th birthday. I got him so many gifts. We always put a cap on the amount we're supposed to spend on each other for holidays but neither of us follow it. We've been looking for good feather pillows because he still uses his disgusting pillow from when he was a kid. So I bought him a feather pillow. I also got him a magazine couple for his rifle. I renewed his subscription for his favorite men's magazine. I also renewed his NFL Sunday ticket for DirectTV. He's also a huge Pittsburgh Steelers, so I got him a couple of Steelers shirts, a nice Steelers drinking glass and a cool Steelers light that lights up. It's awesome.

Well all of our fall sports (excluding men's and women's cross country) have officially started practicing now. We started bright and early today at 6 am. Man the next couple of weeks are going to suck. We'll be here from probably 6 am till 10 pm. That starts getting old pretty darn quickly. Oh well we'll only have this for a couple of weeks and then school starts. It's been pretty hot around here so we need to watching the kids. We'll need to take some ice towels out to football. Those big guys overheat pretty quickly, especially those who aren't acclimitized to our heat and humidity.

Well football has gone pretty well. It's nice having both ATCs and all 8 students and just having 1 sport to worry about that. That's all about to change. Volleyball and men's and women's soccer report tomorrow. But football is just doing a lot of running right now. You can always tell pretty quickly the guys that have actually been training all summer and the ones that have been drinking all summer. There were guys puking within the first half hour of running this morning. Hopefully that isn't a preview of how the entire season is going to go.

Well the football team starts 2-a-days today. They should all start coming in soon because their practice starts at 8am. Boys are funny. They all like to be taped way too early, but atleast it's not always at the last minute. We'll have some of those guys too. The soccer teams and volleyball teams report on Friday. My life is getting ready to be a whole lot more busy. Thank goodness. Summers working at a college is not very fun what so ever.

Well my students report in about a half hour. Today I'm going to be renewing their first aid/CPR/AED certifications with them. We are also going to work on air/vacuum splinting. Also on the agenda is spine boarding and c-collaring. These are all very crutial to learn if they all plan on helping us with football games. My first year here at WPU we had a DB break his back, T-11 & T-12 I think. That was really scary. But that's why we practice all of these things because you never know when you'll have to use it.

Well 2-a-days are almost here. I've been cleaning the training room like a mad woman. I just got done refinishing out tile floors and sealing the mats in the room as well. I also repainted the whirlpool bench blue. I wish the PAC center was done. Then we would have a brand new training room WITH AIR CONDITIONING! But who needs air conditioning when it's only 103 degrees outside. My class that I teach is over tomorrow. THANK GOD!!! First aid has got to be the most boring class to teach and take. It makes it worse that we have to have it for 2.5 hours a day for like 6 weeks. Yikes, don't know if I'll ever teach that again.
