I keep getting e-mails with everyone asking how Morgan's new job is going and I realized I might have forgotten to post about it. *blush*

He's really keeping busy at BMW of Murray (the same place he worked three years ago) and it's a nice change. More work equals more money and we can always use that. They are so busy they're even thinking about putting the techs on in shifts (three 13 hour days on and four days off) to get all the work done. Appointments are being scheduled for five weeks out right now and it's nuts! The new building is going up in Pleasant Grove, just a bit south of Salt Lake City, and being built as we speak. I think they're going to have it open in Oct/Nov and they want Morgan to work down there.

Right now we're renting an apartment in Sandy so we're almost halfway between the two workplaces. In about a year we'll know for sure which shop he'll be in and look at buying a house probably. All in all, things are going well for us in Utah. At some point, when I can bear to leave Miss Emma with someone else, I'll look at trying to find some work teaching at one of the community colleges but I haven't really decided when that will be.

Our house in Cheyenne is scheduled to close on the 14th of July and I'm counting down the days. The people who are buying it are being such pains in the tushie that Morgan and I are getting ready to pull our hair out. First it was having to do a home warranty, paint the garage and parts of the house, come back and clean more stuff and now, get this, they're complaining about the ants in the back yard and (she says) the basement. *rolling my eyes* Please. I've never seen ants in the basement, at least not more than the occasional one. Anyway, Dad's our realtor and being so patient about it all. It'll all happen just fine but until then they're just being pains.

Time Together

This morning Emma and I are going to music time at the library and I think she'll really enjoy it since she seems to like music so much. It's been a pretty crazy week and we could use a little fun time together. Here's a picture of her and me at Liz's graduation in May. Such a cutie!

Fun Times

On our recent trip to New Mexico Emma had a lot of fun playing with her Grandpa O. Just look at that silly smile!

Alive and Well, Happy Fourth!

Hi, it's Lisa.

We're all alive and well now in Salt Lake City (Sandy, actually) getting settled in. So far we've been visiting some old haunts, finding new ones and unpacking. With Miss Emma going to bed at 7:30 there hasn't been much time during the week for wild times but our first weekend we went hiking with the dogs. This past weekend we had to come back to Cheyenne to get the last of our stuff from the house and paint the house, too. Fun fun! Of course, we know Morgan and power tools so he thought the paint sprayer was pretty cool and I'm just thankful he didn't try to paint more than the house. *phew* Though we do have some odd blue leaves in random places thanks to Brian. hhmmmm...

This week I'm actually in Cheyenne with Emma and Dad since Bea's mother passed away and she needed to go back to Iowa. Dad just isn't doing well and I'm glad we have time to spend together and that I can be here to help him. For those of you that don't know, my Dad has been diagnosed with ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis or Lou Gereg's Disease (spelling??)) and each day is a little harder than the one before.

Tonight we watched the fireworks from the front porch but it was so gusty and chilly Dad went to bed before they were over and I got a nasty headache from the wind blowing in my ears. Eeack. Anyway, I really should be off to bed, just wanted to catch ya all up on what's been going on in our world. :)
