Random news

Well, I've been thinking every day what I can blog about but I don't feel like I have anything "special" to share.

I am absolutely LOVING work! I work with very friendly people who like to clean and organize nearly as much or as much as I do. My boss is always encouraging and I have so much fun seeing animals every day! One of the highlights of my day is my lunch time...and no, it's not because I get a break. I eat my lunch and then I go down to the kennel to see if any dogs need walks. So, I get exercise AND I get to have fun walking/jogging a dog or two at the same time.

Phil and I feel like we've found a good, solid church in our area. We went to one the first week I was here and it was a bit charismatic for us. We're not used to running, dancing and speaking in tongues. However, we went to a different church the past two Sundays and have enjoyed it.

We're loving every bit of our time here in CO. Well, that's about it for now.

Please leave a comment if you read my blog...I would LOVE to see who reads my blog. If you don't have a blogger account, then just sign it with annomynous and sign your name. :)

My Pretty Kitty

Last night I got some sweet pictures of my beautiful kitty, Puma. Yesterday, she decided to fall asleep right next to me on the couch. Isn't she sweet?



Day Trip to Grand Junction


Well, today Phil and I drove to Grand Junction. It was really a beautiful drive. I really just took pics of the scenery and the mountains. We ate dinner at a great place I would recommend. It was called Starvin' Arvin's. The food tasted great even though we didn't get exactly what we ordered since we had a brand new server.

By the way, I absolutely LOVE my new job. I had SO MUCH FUN with all of it. I can't wait to go back to work next week. I get to greet all of the animals, use the computer, organize and talk to people...all things that are right up my ally. I'm loving it. If you want to see where I work go to www.redhillvet.com. It's a very nice facility.

Enjoy the pics.








So, NOW do you see one of the reasons we moved to Colorado? Isn't it absolutely beautiful??? We LOVE it!

Guess What????

















I got a job!!!!
I will be working as a receptionist at a vet clinic/kennel/groomer. I am very excited about all aspects of this job. I will be working 10 hour days so I will only have to work 4 days a week. I applied for this job while still in CA but the office manager wanted to interview me in person so I went in today and before I left, he offered me the job. I am super excited about this and I hope it is everything I think it will be. I am looking forward to working with animals again. I begin on Wednesday of this week. I'll let you know how it goes after I begin.

Moved and Lovin' It


Well, I know it's been quite awhile since my last post. I found it difficult to update the blog without having my own computer to work on. I have officially arrived in CO and as the title states, I am loving it! I'll write more about the journey over here later, but for now, I just want to give a quick update and some pictures.

First of all, it has been such a blessing to be reunited with my sweet husband, Phil. One and a half months is a LONG time to be seperated. I know there are many around the world who live without their spouses for months or even years and I do not envy them one bit. We have really enjoyed our time back together and have beening having a fun time unpacking together as a team.

Phil had done a good amount of unpacking in the 2 weeks he had been here without me. (It was actually 1 week because he was in Oklahoma for the other one). However, there were still lots of boxes to unpack and things to organize. The most challenging part of unpacking for both of us is dealing with all of the paper the movers used to wrap EVERYTHING...and I mean EVERYTHING! We have it stacked in our livingroom and it has been packed down again and again. It is presently in 3 piles. We've torn down all the boxes and are storing them for our "someday" move into a house. We have yet to hang any pictures, towel bars etc, but those too will come. For now, it's beginning to feel a lot more like home. Anyways, here are some pics:










Paper & boxes

Lots to unload...almost done!

After picture. I have a scrapbook/craft/sewing area that I am SUPER excited about. I never had a place where I actually had room to work before. My sister and I have plans to make good use of this space when she moves out here.

Getting there!
