I can't believe how quickly this last year has gone by, and mostly I can't believe that this was just a year ago. For those of you who may not know, this blog was actually started as a birthday present for Dane and made its premier exactly one year ago. I can honestly say it has been the best year of my life so far, and it is all thanks to him!
Thanks so much for being such a caring, loving, supportive hubsband, Dane. (p.s. contrary to popular belief, that spelling error was on purpose.) I love you.
So, I am pretty sure that almost everyone who reads this has already heard about the new Surf'n Slurp in town...or at least heard that Dane finally got a job! YEAH! We are so happy, for a number of reasons:
1. Of course the benefit of two paychecks coming in. 2. It is close, meaning Dane can ride his bike which is nice because it is basically his only form of transportation these days. 3. He gets to work with great people, and pretty much get's payed for socializing 4. He has something to help the long hours that I am gone pass. For example, it is not rare for me to get home from work around 10:30 or 11:00 at night, and I cannot tell you how happy it makes me to know that he is now going to be busily working just about that late as well--That might have sounded weird, but now he is not just waiting around with his lonely self waiting for me. Major bonus. 5. I think that there is something deep down in his husband self that makes Dane feel good to be able to be providing for our little family as well.
Anyway, it is just happiness all around! Oh, did I mention he is working at the Surf'n Slurp? It's the new cool place to go! It is just on about 3200 N Canyon Road in the parking lot of Day's Market on the way to Timpview High School. If any of you get a chance to stop by, this is what you may just see:
This is where you can place an order:
And pick-up: It's a pretty snazzy little hut, designed to look like a life-guard hut--They did a pretty good job huh? We are happy to have good jobs and to have the time we do have to spend together. Life is going well, we are busy, but really can't complain!
If you would have asked me when I was in high school what I wanted to be when I grew up, I would not have said--artist... I would have told you that I wanted to walk on the moon. That's right, until I was about 17 I had the dream of becoming an astronaut. It was real. I was seriously considering going to Utah State because I heard some rumor that apparently NASA "heavily recruits" their grads each year, for which I have no idea if it is even true. I loved every science and math class I had ever taken and was sure that the combination of the two would be the greatest discovery of mankind. But that all changed when I took physics. Enough said.
Anyway, my dream was re-awakened and somewhat relived today when I found this:
Just thought you all might enjoy the nerdy science entertainment.
