News!

Sorry about the double post today, but I forgot to write about this last week.
In the last month or so, I've been wanting to change positions at my job to work in home for many reasons, but when I'd apply for positions that I'd find, I wouldn't hear anything. Finally, I was able to apply quickly enough to interview, and I got the job!! I started training this morning, and will continue training in office for the next 4-6 weeks, after that, I'll be home! Jer and I are both pretty excited about it.

Memories Anyone?

I saw this on my old roommate's blog, so I thought I'd do it too. It can be about either Jer or myself.

1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you!

LAKE POWELL!!!

Jer and I just got back from Lake Powell. We went down and hung out with his family, it was SO fun. I was initially nervous about going because of the heat and being dirty and gross lake water, but I got over it...plus it wasn't unbearably hot-except for at night. Jer got a lot of writing done, and I did some reading, on top of playing in the water. I went out on little kayak rides just about every day by myself, and Jer and I went out on the wave runner a couple times too. I learned to drive one, though I'm not that great at it, hopefully someday I will be.
Jer jumped off the boat, and I was going to, but once I got close to it, I started freaking out because of my fear of water and heights. Jer was trying to get me to jump, so I freaked out more and started crying and hyperventilating. Yes, I cried, I admit it. I cried in front of my nieces and nephew who had just jumped before me, I'm such a wuss and had a bit of a break down. I was shaking for a half an hour afterwards. Eventually I did jump, I ended up jumping 5 or 6 times actually. It was scary every single time, but at least I can say I did it. It doesn't look high, but it felt it. The slide was a lot easier and more fun to go down, that's for sure. Here's a video Jer's mom took of us jumping off the boat...

Here are some pics of the lovely views.....



Here's a video of Jer falling off while tubing, he's on the far right...

He tried an air chair too, but I don't have anything of that. Needless to say, he fell off tubing and the air chair enough to be pretty sore, but he's a trooper, and super tough.
