Of work and play


Yesterday Morgan and I went to the Gardens at Thanksgiving Point with some friends. This was the only picture I got before my camera BROKE. :( It turns on and everything, and even pretends to take a picture with a flash and everything, but the screen is black. I thought that maybe the screen was just broken, so I tried taking other pictures, (they would've been cute too) but when I uploaded them they were all black too. Bummer. I've been wanting a new camera, but I would have rather got one on my terms, my time frame. Ah well. It just means that there won't be any pictures of our adventure this weekend.
We are moving. On Saturday. AAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH! There. Sometimes you just gotta yell and scream. Sometimes it's the only thing to do. Noisy as a firetruck, you just got to open up and get the crowds attention turned to you. (100 points to whomever knows what I just quoted.) (Unless you're Stephanie or Mom.) (Sorry.)
So, yeah. We're moving to Dugway, the Army Post where Aaron works. We've known this for a little while now but not the exact date. Well, we knew that we had to be out of this place by the end of the month, (since we turned in our 30 day notice) but we didn't know when something would open up for us in Dugway. It opened up yesterday. I haven't seen the place yet, but I know it's a 3 bedroom, 2 bath, has a large yard, (though not fenced) and no carpet. All hardwood floors. And it was made in the 50's and, according to Aaron, is nothing to write home about. So don't expect any letters about this Mom! It's a step down from our current residence, (which is a step down from our previous residence) but from there Aaron can walk to work, and we will save mega $$ on rent and utilities and virtually everything. I'm looking forward to it.
It feels like I've packed a ton. Yet if you walk into my house it just looks messy. And it can only look messy if there are a lot of things NOT packed to clutter the place up. Oh, and we don't know if we will have anybody to help us move. *SIGH* I'm looking forward to this next week being over and done with.
I have so much to do. So why am I blogging?

WOW!! I hadn't realized how soon you were moving! I hope it all goes pretty smoothly for you. I know how it can be. Why won't there be anyone to help you move? That would make things a little easier. Good luck with all that!

Oh I feel for you I hate moving. It really is one of those things you are just so happy when it is over! Good luck!

Oh, military housing. Never carpet and it all seems to have been built in the 50's. Good luck with the move... it will be nice not to have the commute for Aaron.

I didn't know you were moving, good luck with that. I hope you like it there and the ward is good. I am moving soon as well but I am so glad that I don't have to pack as much.

Well, that was certainly fast! I'm glad we got to hang out with you guys one last time before you moved. Good luck with the new place. And go ahead and post pics!
