July 2009....

Well once again, I find myself procrastinating updating my blog. I could use the excuse that I was soooo busy, but the truth of the matter is I've been READING entirely too much (thanks to anita stansfield) and working hard on my farm town farm (ha!). Needless to say, we have had some exciting things happen this month.

July 10-18th we were traveling to Utah and Arizona and it was a lot of fun. Jake got all of his school shopping done in Utah and was able to spend some well needed time with his family. From Utah, Jake went back to NE to work 65+ hours a week and I went to AZ with Jake's family. I will say this much it was very nice to get away. On top of spending time with the in-laws, I got to see my great friend Suzanne who has an adorable 1 month old baby boy.

The most memorable part of this trip was my flight home from the Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix. I was running a little late, and got to the airport 40 minutes before my flight left. I really thought people only ran through the airport in movies, but somehow I WAS THE ONE RUNNING! Callie was in one hand and my bag was in the other. She started out giggling and then proceeded to say "owe, Owe, OWE!" With the help of some wonderful people we made it to our terminal 10 minutes before the flight left. However, when we arrived at Denver we had to wait another 3 hours for the carseat because it was late checked. I learned a great lesson that day. ARRIVE AT THE AIRPORT EARLY!

Other than the trip, the month has been pretty uneventful. I have spend a lot of time relaxing because I have been having sciatic never pain. I finally went to the chirpractor and basically he said there wasn't a whole lot I could do. If I'm sitting down I'm not in pain. If I work I am. I only hope that going back to work won't be too uncomfortable.

Well I am sure I have missed a ton, but until next time...
