I'm at work.


I work about five minutes away from the airport and my parents are flying in tonight - in about 15 minutes. So I didn't feel like the best use of gas/time would be to come here, work, go home, come back, go home again.

They'll call me when they land and then I'll head over. Because I really am that close.

I've been sitting at my desk going over my work plan, finishing sifting through the clutter that had filled up (and I mean FILLED up) the cubicle that I inherited with the new position, cleaned out my purse, and now blogging from my phone since I haven't done that in a long time.

And now I'll leave you with this -
(Or I'll try to leave you with 'this.' Since I'm posting from my phone I can't tell exactly where the picture will be - at the end or the beginning of the post. Oh well.)

What I've Been Doing...

(many pictures - scroll through quickly)

... At Work I've ...

 ...started working for safe kids utah

 ...become a certified technician in

...spent hours in the car

...driving to faraway (Utah) places

...seeing beautiful things

including the Mexican hat

...stopped at the smallest rest stop I've ever seen
(found out that the smallest rest stop I've ever seen is more like a glorified outhouse - 'glorified' because it did have electricity...)

 ...locked my keys in the car and waited an hour and a half for AAA to save me

...and raced little kids during a car seat checkpoint.

this week i've been spending time cleaning out file drawers and getting rid of TONS of junk left in the cubicle that i inherited along with the position. documents from '96, '97, '98...
believe it or not, there is progress in these pictures...

At home/play I've...

...watched some drive-in movies (one with a pretty sweet motorcycle-chase scene)

...gotten myself colored during a 5k with these two

(my leg - yes, i was flexing on purpose)

...seen other pretty things

...some of them while mountain biking (or walking my bike up a mountain)

and getting my mountain-biking trash kicked out of my by shauna

...hung out with these two

(belle turned her head, but before i took this picture they were both eying the pepperoni thing that graydon had in his hand)

...which included letting them help me crochet

...and re-crochet...

...and getting them ready for the halloween dog parade

...burned my arm on a 400 degree cookie sheet
(treated it immediately with a coconut oil/lavender essential oil mix - helps so much in getting the heat out)

 ...watched my brother (in purple) and his friends win a soccer championship

...gone through the brigham city temple (so beautiful!)

That about sums it up for me.

For now.
