Finally, looking UP!

So, I can finally say things are starting to look up for us. Seems like this is the first time all summer something has actually decided to go our way. Well, unfortunately things never seemed to workout for us down here in Mesa. We looked for jobs everyday for a month. Well we couldn't just keep looking so we all had this grand idea that just decided to hit everyone of my family members at the same time. "Why not just go back to Utah?? You both have secure jobs, and that's where you will be staying all year anyways!" Yeah, why we didn't decide to do that in the first place...well, I guess we will never know. So, we started looking for apartments and as of two days ago, have an apartment signed and ready to go! It all just seemed to work out perfectly. Yea, so it sucks that this is our 3rd time moving this Summer--but it will be the last time for the next year. ANND, I get to have friends again! yeah! SOO, everything thus far is looking up for us. We are leaving Mesa with his parents after this weekend. They are coming out here for the 4th! Then we will head up to Utah by Thursday; so we will be working by Monday! Thank goodnessss! It will be so nice to get settled into one place that we know we wont be leaving, and to just get everything back to the norm. We are definitely much more positive and feel that this is what we should have done from the start. But hey, you live and you learn...

Aside from all that, we have enjoyed being in Mesa. However, I really do not know if I could handle the heat forever. It has been SOO hot. Like, no cooler than 110 degrees everyday. So, basically we have gone swimming in the pool every single afternoon. Only way to keep us from going insane from the heat. It's been a good time! We are excited for his parents to be coming tomorrow for the 4th of July...oh, how i looove the 4th of July! However, this is definitely my first year without being surrounded by my whole family. Every 4th of July usually everyone from my family flies out to Georgia and we spend 4th of July on Lake Lanier. So, it probably won't be quite so fun this year...but it will be a good time with Dustin's family. Had we still been in Sacramento we would be on our own with no family! That would have been a bummer. So we are definitely grateful for Dustin's family!
