Hectic Times

Everythings crazy!  Jessica and I are going nuts!  Ok, not quite, but things are definitely busy around here.  Jessica is really going a million miles an hour trying to get caught up at her job as a middle school teacher.  Seeing as how she started a week into the semester, she is trying to set up her room that would have been setup in the summer, plan lessons that would have all ready been planned, and trying to stay sane through it all.

I’m trying to help her in whatever ways he can as well as fitting in time for his writing.  Writing is such an involved process that it can be overwhelming, but I know I can do it.  I just always have to remember that it is my first time, and mistakes are ok.  I really do enjoy it, and that’s what I need to focus on.

By the way, some new house pictures are up.  Keep checking back often as we’ll put new ones up.


New House Pictures

Well, we’ve successfully created our first Google Picasa Web Album.  It is, of course, for our new home pictures!  Anyway, you will always see a link to the album on the right (see the picture of dirt?) that will send you to the album where you can see all of our pictures.

Our newest pictures are of our dirt that is grated and ready to go.  You can also find the floorplan for our house as well as one of a cute looking dog and funny looking guy.  Enjoy!

What’s new with us

This is our family newsletter submission for the month.  It will update you on our struggles and our triumphs.  You know, things of that nature.

Its us in the hottest and windiest of states.  Ok, maybe not _the_ hottest, but probably more so than any of you!  Not that I’m glad for that because believe you me, its not pleasant.  The air conditioner in the house hasn’t been able to keep up with the heat, so the afternoons get up to about 79 in the house, and we’re ready for it to cool down.  I don’t know if we said this last month, but we’re staying in Jessica’s parents’ house until our house gets built.  What’s that you say?  You didn’t know we were building a house?  Yep, we are.  It hasn’t been started yet, but our loan has been approved, and right now we’re in the selection stage getting everything squared away with how its going to end up.

We’re outta here

Well, we’re outta here.  Adam got a job in Oklahoma at Lopez foods as a computer programmer.  We’ve thought about it, prayed about it, even debated it (almost heatedly) and we’ve decided that this is the right thing for us to do right now.

So right now, we are starting to pack things up and get ready to leave.  I have resigned my post as an English teacher at Olympus High School, which made me quite sad; but I’ll be okay.  My principal was really good to me and very understanding.
Adam has also left his job with Dan, and he has been great during this whole process.  We are so grateful for all that Dan did to help us right out of school.  Adam had a job to go to that he learned a great deal from.  It was an invaluable experience.  Thanks Dan!

Thank you to everyone here who made our life in Utah as pleasant as it could be.  We have loved our time here, but sadly, it is time to move on to something different.  We’d love to hear from you if you are here sometime before the 20th, since that is when we are leaving. 

So adieu for now!  Please stay in touch with us if you are not already!


After much work and sleepiness, the we finally have some pictures up of Lucy (our miniature Schnauzer) and our Vegas ’06 vacation!  This blog is only a temporary holding place for them, however, until our web site is up and running. 

For those of you who are new (basically everybody because we just sent out an email inviting you), you can feel free to browse the rest of this blog, comment on any of the posts, and come back every now and then to see what’s new.  Thanks!

Adam and Jessica were married in the Idaho Falls LDS temple on June 5, 2004 and have been living happily ever after since.  They currently live in the Oklahoma City area where Adam works as a software developer and Jessica is teaching technology at Deer Creek Middle School.  They started this blog (and site) to have a place to store their opinions, rants, raves, and all such things as seemeth them good.  Enjoy!
