That's right

Life is caaarazy. It's been a crazy summer so far, but mostly good. Some highlights so far in chronological order:

Paul turned three - we had a fun birthday party with some new friends, but he did keep asking where his old friends were.

I got a new job - I work for my cousin Lucy who is a real estate agent. I'm learning tons about staging houses, and the ins and outs of real estate.

We found an apartment - it's swell. It has A/C, two rooms, two bathrooms, a washer/dryer, dishwasher, and 3 walk in closets.

We have fixed our car twice - once in San Antonio, as we pulled up to Uncle Marlo's house spluttering and gasping (which he fixed for us, THANKS!) and this week replaced the water pump. Ahh the joys!

My computer crashed - one day it was working, the next day it wouldn't turn on. My dad got it working - bravo! But not fully, so we are hoping to get a new one with all our extra cash laying around soon. Like next year.

My family came - they came for a week, and we crammed and smashed more things than any 7 people ought to, but it was super fun. Everytime we drive past the airport (3 or more times a week), Paul wants to pick up gramma, cappa, zizzy, and am. Sadly, there are rarely, if ever there.

I had a broken tooth pulled that has been broken since before we left Utah....the first time. Yippee!

Jared was callled as our ward bulletin board specialist. That's right.

And I updated my blog. So there you have it.

I can totally hear your voice as I read this.
Carter has been asking where Texas is. Grandpa asked Carter if he wants to move here (Salem) to which Carter said, "I think maybe, but I think maybe Paul lives in Texas."

What?? I totally had no idea that you started a new job! What in the world! Awesome. I hope it is something you enjoy and I'm sure you like working with cousin Lucy... from the sounds of it, she's swell. Do you love having a dishwasher AND a washer/dryer AND three walk in closets? That's awesome. Sorry about your car man....
