I found out today that my dog GIR died this morning. Now, GIR had been living with my parents for the past 5 years, but Seth and I bought her as a puppy and had her for about a year before we moved from Logan. My Mom fell in love with her and when we got married, she voted to keep her. She seriously was one of the best dogs I have ever had the pleasure of spending time with. (I'm getting pretty teary eyed just thinking about her) My Dad took Seth and I to lunch to break the news. Apparently she was hit by a car this morning. This is a known risk in the country, but it never gets any easier. It figures that my two favorite dogs were both hit by cars on the same road :( I'll have to dig up a picture to post tomorrow.

*I decided to start each blog with actual feelings, instead of recaps* Although I do enjoy my job (as much as anyone does, I assume) I still find myself justifying each day as one step closer to the weekend. But sometimes its depressing when all you want to do is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING when that weekend finally arrives, yet plans have been made and there are obligations to keep. It make me think of that terrible movie, "Jungle to Jungle" when Tim Allen tells his kid that an obligation is something that you have to do but you really don't want to. Its sad that I find myself feeling this way. It isn't that I don't LOVE the time I get to spend with family and friends but sometimes its nice to think you have control over your own life. So I decided that I should just revel in the moments that I do have to relax. Even as I write this I think of all of you mother's out there and I realize that you are reading this and shaking your head at my naivety. I'm sure that I have yet to experience truly feeling like your life is run by others.

Too bad my office decided that Columbus Day was not a legit enough holiday to be closed...

I am so ready for fall weather! I am sick of being in "wardrobe limbo"... its not quite warm enough for summer clothes, but its too hot for jackets or sweaters... Worst part of my day is deciding what to wear every morning... However, I'm going to need to supplement my winter closet (yes, I have two) and I hate shopping! I am the worst girl ever... I just don't have the patience to "browse" and I loathe trying anything on... stupid poorly lit dressing rooms... Of course everything looks good in the DARK! Ridiculous... Please excuse my ranting...

I am soo terrible at updating this! I read everyone's updates almost daily, but always talk myself out of updating my own :( So here is the last 3 months... We have had a really busy summer, with lots of family vacations...
Kass graduated high school in May... I am soo proud of her! It was a hard road there for a couple years ;) It was outside on their football field and I managed to acquire my first sunburn of the year... They had a guy parachute the flag onto the field... it was miraculous!
We went to Lake Powell in July with my family. It was a blast... It was especially cool since my cousin John had just gotten home from his mission (literally days before). He was hilarious and I realized how much I had missed him and his bro Trent while they were gone! This also meant that my Aunt Joyce and Uncle Rich came along as well... There is never a dull moment between Joyce, my Mom and my Mom's sister Julie... I was sad that we couldn't stay the whole week, but work was calling our names... Seth managed to lose his wedding ring, which we have yet to replace... He keeps saying he just wants something cheap, but we haven't gotten around to actually looking for one... Its funny, because normally Powell is the one time that I take an overabundance of pictures, but this year I kept forgetting my camera everytime we went out on the boat... I did remember one trip, so all these pics are from that one boat ride...
I also must admit that I have a serious problem with remembering to take pictures! I have kept my camera in my purse and I swear it makes me less likely to take any pics! I don't know how everyone remembers :( Plus I don't want to be that person that keeps making everyone pose for pictures.. Seth hates it... I hate it... I promise I'll work on that.
We have also had a couple camping excursions with the Gordon's and are heading off for another one today! I'm still crossing my fingers that Blake's girlfriend Bailee will join us! She is a blast to be around and its nice to have some girly conspirators (get your butt down here ERICA!)
We went up to Logan last weekend for Seth's BFF Micah's birthday... It was the resulted in the usual amount of hooligan activity... I am so glad that he has such great friends that have been with him through every up and down in his life... They are all amazing! I have always felt so welcome with the whole group and this weekend was no exception! We spend Micah's birthday hanging out and ended the night with some seriously rocking karaoke! I wish I would have taken pictures... Micah, Seth and AP rocked about every song they could come up with... I especially enjoyed their rendition of Backstreet Boys, "You are my fire"... It was classic... Thanks Carlie for letting us hang out with your fam!
As far as normal life goes, I am starting a new job Monday... I will be working with my Dad's friend Chad Atkinson at his insurance agency... I am really excited and cannot wait to see what benefits this new opportunity will bring! It has been stressful though because I had to take the licensing exam on Wednesday and I totally slacked off and didn't study until, pretty much Monday... I am and have always been a horrible procrastinator... Its almost worse that I know it enough to openly admit it :( Either way, I managed to just pass the exam... It was a lot harder than I anticipated and I'm pretty sure its designed for people to fail... Its as if they took all the stupid detail that you breezed over when studying and asked EVERY one of the 150 questions based on those 4 parts... I had a panic attack on the way over to the testing center, but managed to pull myself together... I have to thank Seth for dealing with me the past week... I was soo stressed about it and he patiently made me study... But I PASSED!!! I was soo excited when I saw my score! I was positive that I had failed :( Seth is still working at the cabinet shop and hopefully they can stay busy enough to keep him! We are hopefully entering the next phase of our life soon and the new jobs, and income, should help! I wish that I updated this more often... I feel like I forget the fun details when I wait 3 months ;)
