Fall time happenings...

So, it has most definitely been a while since I have written in here. I thought my blog could use a newly updated post. Things have been going alright. It's been quite stressful. They keep saying ..."don't worry, this will all pass"...and I am just wondering when it will actually pass. Work has been absolutely ridiculous this last month. There was hardly any work, and when there was work it normally didn't last any longer than a week. However, I finally have a full schedule so I am hoping that will level out the whole stress factor. Halloween was good. Nothing too exciting went on over here. We just went down to Sandy to visit a friend who had surgery the day before. We considered it a good time. Then we had the wonderful happenings of the Election, and I was happy to say that I voted for my second time!! I do love having the privilege to vote!

One super exciting thing that has happened with us in the past month was that Dustin finally got a job that he has been wanting. He got a job on campus as a Support Tech for the CES Library systems. He was very excited because this job is in his area of studies. So, now he will actually having working experience in his major and not just a bunch of completed courses. Plus, it pays more than he was getting before--however, he can only work 20 hours max a week. Which was kind of disappointing but in the long run it will totally be worth it! He absolutely loves it, so I am glad he finally got a job that he can enjoy! :) He is also doing really well in his classes so things are going pretty peachy for him! Speaking of classes...I FINALLY registered for classes for next semester! I know I sound like a nerd, but I am so excited to get back into school and get things rollin again. It will just be so nice to know that I am actually moving forward, finally. I will be taking classes at the BYU Salt Lake Center. I also have one class with my sister and another class with my sister AND Dustin! So, I am excited about that. It will just be good to be back into the world of school, homework, studying, and tests. I say it now, I am sure I will regret saying this later.

So, have I ever mentioned how much I love this time of year? It is really the best time of year! I am so excited. We are heading down to Arizona for Thanksgiving! I didn't think we were going to be able to make it this year but it turns out we are! It will be good to be around family over the holidays. Plus, I am pretty sure they have a huge decked out dinner planned so I am really looking forward to that! Yummm! I love Thanksgiving! Then, two weeks after thanksgiving it's time to finally finally finally, go back home to the good ole' South! I have not been to Georgia since March, but it just seems to much longer than that. I am so excited to see all of my family again and to just be back in Georgia for a while. We will be there through New Years, so I am pretty sure it will be a good Holiday. My Mom is going into Surgery the 23rd. Right before Christmas, but hopefully she will be getting out of the Hospital by Christmas Day. I am just glad that I will get to be there for her for that last big part of treatment. She is doing really well, and it's really on downhill from here. Which makes me super happy and excited for her. :) Last weekend the whole family went up to the mountains for her and my sister's birthday. Last year they did the same thing except Dustin and I were there, so we were definitely missing them bad this year, so we are pretty stoked for Christmas. THEN, we get to take Ashlee, and Tabitha back to Utah with us. Well, in a sense. They are both moving out here and trying out the whole "Utah Scene". I think they will like it alot out here. It will be a long drive back. All three cars following eachother. Should be an adventure!

This is why I need to update more...so my posts aren't so dang long! Oh well..
