One Adventure After Another

This past Tuesday George went back to school. Yes, it's that time again! Ah! *sniff* He's growing up so fast. haha. Just kidding. He is graduating this semester with his Bachelors! I am so pleased with his efforts to do well in school. I married an amazing man. :)
Last Saturday we went on a triple date up AF Canyon to Forest Lake. I had been up there before but not in a long time. I forgot how scary the trail is! It's more for jeeps...not four wheelers...
We made it up to the Lake soon enough after me screaming and cringing more than half the time. On the way down George and I got to ride in the razor. It was WAY more fun and less scary in that thing. But George sang (more liked screamed) church hymns with me at the top of our lungs to make me feel better. haha. I wish I had gotten a picture of the trail we were on! It was CRAZY!
When we got to the main road it started to POUR and I couldn't see and water was literally flowing off my face and pelting us (which was bad because I was trying to drive the thing). We had planned to have a picnic, but oh-well. haha.
We had a good time anyway!

With George in school again I told him I want to be more involved in school this year. I want to attend concerts and games and dances and activities. I mean, why not? We are young and it would be cheep because George is either free or discounted! This week there's a foam dance...hope we can go!!!

Life moves fast in this house, but it's full of fun lovin' and happy faces (most the time).
Here's some pic's of us. :) George was very gracious and let me have my fair share of driving. He couldn't go too crazy with me in it, so I let him take the thing for a spin alone. Haha. He is such a boy. I love it. :)

This was us after we were soaked. We survived!!! haha

Out with the Old, In with the New...

Lately there has been a lot of change going about here at the Stewart residence. Crazy change. Not that it's change that will blow your mind, but just because I feel like my life is CRAZY! I can't slow down for two seconds. I can't believe it's already AUGUST! Man...we gotta get out of here and do something fun before school starts....ugh.

For one, I cut my hair just above my shoulders at a long A-line. I like it, although the change was pretty drastic since I have not cut my hair that short....ever. But it feels good. I feel like I'm starting to find myself again.

Secondly...I got a job!!! Yay! I am now the Head Assistant at Dr. Robert L. Tayler's office in South Ogden (he's and Endodontist. Which is a dentist who specializes in Root Canal Therapy). It is the first job in my life that has ever challenged my intellect and skills. Which I like, but I also come home every day stressed out and want to cry because I feel like I'm doing a horrible job. But that's just because I'm a perfectionist and I can be hard on myself. I just keep reminding myself that I didn't have a lot of experience with root canals in school and that every office is different and that I am a human being....someone who is full off trial and error. Which is good. Right?

Also....George and I decided we wanted to see if we could move out of our tiny apartment. Yesterday while cleaning out our closet I got frustrated to tears because I'm sick of being in a place with no room for our stuff. I only have one closet, people. For everything. It's quite crowded...but we aren't going to be able to move. Everything is SO expensive. We only pay like, 545/mon plus utilities. Can't complain there.

Behold...the spacious closet.

So, as I was getting down on myself and complaining about all these things yesterday I had to stop and remind myself that I have more than I can even be thankful for. George and I have been so blessed. So the least I can do is muddle through it with a smile on my face. I least I have the man of my dreams muddling through it with me, right?

I guess that's the beauty of being "first married." You have crappy jobs, you have miracles happen each month and you are somehow able to pay the bills, sometimes for dinner you eat ramen....all week..., you spread out as much as possible in a tiny little apartment, and you hope for the best. Especially when it seems all odds are against you.

PLUS: I desperately need a hobby....a cheap one...any ideas???

So, today I'm grateful for apartments with AC and a fridge with food. Even if there is only ramen in my pantry. And for a husband who loves me, even when I cry over closets.

I need to blog more often. But my thoughts aren't as creative as they used to be and my life isn't all that exciting... I feel like I was a grape and now I'm a prune... I need to re-juice.
