2 weeks down and life to go

I'm 2 weeks into my new Utah life, and things are feeling good. I'm getting into the groove at work, feeling more familiar with my surroundings and, well, adjusting. It's all good so far.
One of my favorite parts about living at Natalie's house has been attending my nephews' soccer games. Yesterday we pulled a divide and conquer. Nats went to Tell's 9:45 game and I went to Dallin's 10 am game on the other side of town. It really cracks me up to watch Dallin play soccer. It's a full contact sport! Dallin scored a goal and kicked general butt as usual. Tell played his last game and had his team party. He was awarded a medal and a certificate for MVP. He hasn't taken off his medal yet!! So cute! He is giving a talk today in church and I have a feeling he'll be wearing it proudly there too. I'm sure he'll even find a way to conveniently mention it as well.
If my camera phone ever decides to cooperate I'll put up pictures of the cuteness. But it's not cooperating!
Which is also why I can't put up the pictures from my rocking Friday night. You'll just have to trust me that I had a blast and go read the account on Karen/Shabang's blog. We went to the midnight drag races at the Rocky Mountain Raceway. To quote Shabang, it was ghetto redneckishly fabulous, and then some. It was also my first foray out into socializing and making friends in Utah. Yeah me!
It also turns out that I'm allergic to everything here as well. I woke up this morning with massive allergies. I feel another Sunday in bed praying for mercy coming on. I have nearly no voice and sinus issues, or in other words, things advil doesn't cure.
Time to go. Porter is screaming something about Owie's bed. This does not bode well for my day of praying for mercy in bed.


  1. That was a good time! I enjoyed it so much I just might be a Redneck! I have a feeling this summer being Ghetto Fabulously redneckish is going to be in HIGH fashion! Here's to many more summer outtings. :)

    ps. My allergies kicked in yesterday morning. I have herbs for that if you wanna try em. they're working on allergies and sinus infection all together w/o the drowzy side effects :)

  2. I remember this one time you told us that there were no rednecks above the Mason-Dixon line. I laughed a little inside, and thought, "girl, you've never really been to the intermountain west.'
