GIA and side effects

Yesterday I had an inquiry about GIA.  "The Gemological Institute of America is the foremost authority on diamonds, colored stones, and pearls."  I work for a locally owned jewelry store in Alabaster, AL.  My boss has been in the jewelry business his entire life.  Jen (co-worker) and I are taking a class through GIA's distance learning program.  I took my first assessment yesterday and scored perfectly!  =)  So far, I've learned a LOT about diamonds.

The side effects from BCP have started.  Before walking in the door to work yesterday I had to sit down and breathe heavily to keep from throwing up in public.  Not one of my finer moments!  Thankfully, I had some chewable Pepto in my purse.  I snacked and didn't eat lunch until 3pm, so I wasn't even hungry for dinner when I got home.

We got some kinda-positive news yesterday about my SIL.  Again, that's all that I can say at the moment. 

22 more days. =)  Time is flying by.  The summer is gone and September is almost here.
