Arrived safe and sound

As you probably guessed, we made it back to Utah safe and sound last Wednesday. Pretty much we've just been unpacking and trying to figure out where to put things. We helped Mary and Gerry move some items out of the basement today and it's crazy how much space it opened up!

Jess started work on Monday and so far isn't too enamored of it. He'll enjoy it more when he actually gets to do some work and not just training. I guess his old boss from the other queue he was in saw Jesse in the building and told Jess he'd be more than welcome back on the Marriott team. Not sure if Jesse will end up sticking with Microsoft or go back to Marriott. I know he's still really hoping for at least one of the city jobs to come through.

I've been applying for jobs like crazy for the past couple weeks, and not a peep. Applied at a few more UofU jobs, and one with the county, and tomorrow will fill out paperwork for a school district job that sounds promising. Keep your fingers crossed!

On another note, I'm meeting up with mom and Vel tomorrow and I'm trying to figure out what I should have mom do to my hair. It's been 4 months since I've done anything (wouldn't go to anyone in Oregon, didn't want to pay!) and I'm trying to decide if I want to grow my hair out again or chop it really short again. I seem to swing back and forth between the two extremes. If I leave it at the chin length it's currently at, I may play around with some of those neat clip-on hair extensions in the funky colors. However, if I cut it really short, I won't have to do much with it, and I'm a fairly lazy individual when it comes to doing my hair. When my hair is long, it's very pretty when I curl or braid it, but usually I just throw it up in a sloppy bun/ponytail. At least when it's short it has its own style without much prodding from me. Who knows. I sent my mom and sis a couple photos, so they'll help me decide tomorrow.


  1. Happy to be back? I'll admit, I'm a little jealous. Houston is great, but I really miss Utah...

    Good luck finding a job!

  2. *sigh, I didn't even get to see you while you were in Oregon...

    I can't believe you are back in Utah.

    I've been trying to figure out something to do with my hair too, since my Mom is a hairdresser too. I totally go back and forth between the two extremes. I'm thinking it's time to go super-short again.

    Good luck with the job search. I'm doing the same currently (I was laid off three weeks ago). Thinking about moving myself to Austin, TX or something.
