Harry Potter and Other Updates

Well, I know I suck at updating I have gotten yelled at for this (figuratively because it was a message) and I am going to try to repent and do better. I am going to see the new Harry Potter movie tonight at 12:15 which is going to be exciting I think. I talked to my friend Chelsea who said she liked it and would recommend it. Even though she hasn't read the books and I have (several times) so she might feel different about it than I will, it is a good sign. I have liked all the movies so far, so I think this one will be enjoyable as well. Yay!

In other news (I love typing that, I feel like a newscaster!) I have been super busy at work lately. I have had a few long hard days which sucks because I come home with sore feet and stinking of monkey but I am usually too tired to try to shower. I do because I stink like monkey's but I have enjoyed less of my showers lately. Which is sad 'cause I usually enjoy showering. Oh well. Also, it sucks working for almost 12 hours in one day when I don't really get compensated for it (I am on salary). Blech!!

Other than that, work is going well. I am learning lots every day and I think they are glad to have me there. I am going to work my first weekend alone this next weekend though so we will see how it goes. But before that I get three days off which is nice.

One thing I did on my last days off was paint a picture. I will post a pic on here but it isn't going to be very good since I had to take it with my phone because my camera software is not on my new computer yet and I think it will be a while before I upload it since I am pretty sure it is in Utah. But this is the pic I took with my phone. So anyway, this is not a very good painting but since it is the first thing I have painted since I was twelve, and even then that was watercolor and this is acrylic I think it is pretty good. I am going to keep painting and hopefully improve, but that is what I did so far.

I haven't been knitting at all lately, which sucks, but I am planning on working on it soon. I have a couple of things that I want to make sure that I finish before I go to Utah in August, so I guess that means I should get working on it! I do have a few days off, so that is actually perfect.

Speaking of going to Utah in August, my best friend is getting married! Christina (there are pictures of here on here) is engaged to Matt Munyan and they are really good together. They are getting married on August 18th in the Manti temple in Utah. I am really happy for them and I am way excited to be there for it and to visit everyone in Utah. Mind you, it is going to be the shortest visit ever so I am going to have to go back some other time when I can actually take time and see everyone that I want to see. I miss all my friends in Utah :( But I am having a great time in Oregon. I love it here so far and things are going well (although lately it has been ridiculously hot and I don't have air conditioning).

Also, my brother and his girlfriend who are pregnant (which I mentioned a few posts ago) are now promised to each other too (I am not sure if that is the right terminology but whatever). Jessie's grandma gave JR a ring to give to Jessie as a sort of promise ring (I think he will want to pick out his own engagement ring for her) which is really cool. I always thought it would be better to get an heirloom ring from a guy than something he or I picked out. Anyway, that is cool news I thought. Congrats to them! I am way excited to be an Auntie and I think it is officially going to be in January sometime (I think on the 8th but I am not positive).

That is it for now. I will try to update more often .... but we will see how it goes. Maybe I will start paying for internet and then that will make it easier to update.

hi hi hi! even though i talked to you just yesterday, I really enjoyed your post and update. Nice work, cap'n.

I don't know if I could handle smelling like monkey butt you gotta do what you gotta do.

Also, that's awesome Christina is getting married! After the drama last time, I hope she's really really happy.

Your picture is good! You should team up with marcus on the artistry of things. You can paint them after he sculpts...how fun would that be?

Miss you tons!
