Last night Mike and I were on our way out to dinner to celebrate my new job. We were innocently stopped at a light for about 30 seconds and then, bam, we were rear ended. She had to have been going 30 mph because she hit us pretty hard. It was pretty painful. Apparently she was distracted with the two cars and cop parked on the side of the road, so she turned to look at them and then she ran into the back of us. It kind of ruined our night because we both had pretty bad headaches afterwards but we try to look on the positive side. We already kind of had a scuff on our bumper from a hit and run in the Smiths parking lot. Ironically enough, while we were on our way to dinner, I had said to Mike, "I would just like to get rear ended because then we could get that scuff repaired and somebody elses insurance can pay for it." Well I guess my wish came true because about 15 minutes later, we were rear ended. The hard part about it is now putting it in the shop. It will take probably a week to fix which means we are going to be out a car. Plus we have to get it fixed quick so that we can drive it to Vegas in two weeks. It probably wasn't the best timing, but I guess it'll be nice to have the bumper completely repaired.


Time for a Change...

So today I got a new job. I am going to be doing Accounts Payable.....which is good since my major is Accounting. Plus the pay is more and I will be getting benefits. So I guess this is a good change. No, I know that this is a good change. But its just so hard. I really REALLY love my job right now. I have been at SLCC for 3 years and nothing beats it. It is so laid back and I LOVE the people that I work with and its been really good with school and my busy schedule. But I guess its just time for a change. Time to move on. I have to give my two weeks notice today and I am just nervous. Not that its a scary situation necessarily, I have an awesome supervisor but just because I am sad to leave and that will make it all real. But this is a good opportunity and I really shouldn't pass it up so I guess two more weeks and then I have to move on.



Last Friday, Mike and I had his niece and nephew sleepover at our apartment. What adventure that was! They are some wild kids, but I blame Mike for getting them all hyper. They came over and we went and got some pizza and had a picnic on our family room floor. Then the kids spent about an hour running from room to room to see who could do it faster. Wow, so easily entertained. Then we played hide and seek.....for about another hour. Once again easily entertained. But I did find some fun nooks in my apartment that I would have never thought to hide before...beware Mike! Mike's niece and I decided to make some chocolate chip cookies, which I have to say were probably some of my best, and then we took some over to Mike's parents. When we got home, the kids still were pretty hyper so Mike became a human swing and spinned them around for a good while. Poor guy. We did end up finally getting them to wind down and watch Peter Pan. The two kids slept on our couches and Mike took the floor and I went into the bedroom, closed the door and got the bed all to myself! Oh so nice. The next morning it was cereal and baths and then out to the park to fly a kite because it was so windy! Then we went and met Mike's family at Wendy's for lunch and handed over the kids. Love them to death but wow, they just wiped me out. I realized how much I take my freedom for granted. We had a ton of fun though!


Run Mike Run

So over this past weekend, Mike met another goal and ran a half-marathon! We went down to Provo early on Saturday morning with what seemed like a million other people so Mike could run. Mike had been training for it for a couple of months and he did great! I started out training with him but once we hit our 7 mile run, I was out. Too early in the morning, too cold outside and too much of a wimp to actually do it. I am way proud of Mike though for saying he was gonna do it and then actually getting up the courage to do it! Running is hard. Anyway, he finished the race in 1 hour and 58 minutes and he said he won't be doing it again any time soon! Gotta try everything once!
