Beach time!!

So this last weekend Melissa, myself, and the munchkins had a chance to go to the beach. It was amazingly fun! I was a little concerned at what everyone said about the temperature of the water. Let me just say, that the west coast has MUCH warmer water. However, the sand out here kicks the west coast's trash. The sand out here is wonderful! It was so much fun to watch as the kids would run through the waves. Once again, I am sure that Melissa either already has or will be putting up pictures. I am glad that one of us is on top of that!

School started today and I am already switching my schedule. Yavapai was amazingly helpful when they had me sign up and pay for the same class twice. So after fixing that, I am now settled in and just waiting for my books to arrive. Hopefully they arrive soon so that I can do my homework! I am really excited about the classes that I will be taking, especially my Nutrition class. The kids start tomorrow and they are really excited and a little bit nervous! I love watching them grow up!

Shhh... It's the Library

So this past week I have started working at the library. I absolutely love what I do. I love that when kids come in that i can just hang out with them. It has been a lot of fun! The library can also get pretty dead though. I don't like these times. I find myself sitting and waiting for someone to just show up! Usually the person who shows up is an obnoxious preteen who wants to talk my ear off about the latest video game that they are playing. When this happens.... I want the library to be empty again! No but really is a lot of fun and really like my job! Which is a HUGE relief! It will be nice next week when I get into a routine and life slows down a little bit! However, with the munchkins that I live with.... I doubt this will ever happen! But that is good because we keep life hopping!

I am going on a berry hunt!

So today I went on a berry hunt with some of the families from Farmington. It was soooooo much fun! I was really hesitant about it because it didn't sound like it would be. But I ended up loving it! I wish that they had blue berry picking out west! The place that we went too also had peaches and raspberries and some more. But we only picked blueberries. I am sure that Melissa will be putting pictures on her blog soon.... so you can see them there! I am way too lazy and late for our next big adventure!

I don't think I am in Kansas anymore... maybe not even the US

So, today I officially became a resident of the east coast. I moved out here today and had two very nice flights. When I arrived, I immediately attended a barbeque at Melissa's and Chris' house. It was a lot of fun and it was a great way to meet the people of Farmington that I will be spending the next while of my life with. However, while I was there I was starting to feel like I was in a foreign country. There are trees EVERYWHERE here. I took for granted how nice it is to look out at the horizon... and see the horizon. Here I see the trunks of hundrends of trees. It isn't quite the same. But the main point of my confusion was the hot dog buns. Now over in the west coast our hot dog buns are cut on the side. So I have spent the last 19 years or so with hot dog buns this way. When I arrive today.... I find, (after a LONG time), that their hot dog buns are cut on top. I was about to go slice the hot dog bun open when I found it. It made me really confused. But that is okay! I guess if I can get passed the strange buns then nothing will phase me! Well I start work on Tuesday and I am really excited about it! I will continue to post all the random east coast findings thats I find while I am out here! lol

So I am really bad at this whole blogging thing

So.... I need to catch up again. I got the library job and will be a children's librarian. I move out there on the 16th so I have about a week and a half. Crazy! I have decided that I HATE packing though. It is no fun! But that is okay. Well school has started out here for the rest of my family. The first couple of days are always crazy. It is always a whirlwind of crying kids, lunch duties, and making sure they get on the right bus. I am really going to miss working at the school though. I, however, will not miss working for my current boss at Hastings. Let me just say that the guy drives me crazy! But that is okay. My last day there is tomorrow. I have started playing the piano and the guitar again. I am really excited about it. I have missed playing them both so much. Hopefully when I get to New Hampshire I will be able to continue. While I am back east I will be taking 16 credit hours online from Yavapai. I look forward to being one semester closer to an associates degree. Yay! I know it this is short but I will try to get better at blogging more often!
