What a busy month already! I had a lecture on the first and had lunch with Andrea. That night was Face to Face with Doug and Erica. Amazing show! I wish I had listened to a little more face to face before the show, but I still loved it. The Nile feels like it hasn't changed at all. I felt like that insecure little high schooler while I stood in line, more than 10 years later. Gotta love that! :)
On the third, Brittanae, PJ and I went tubing down the salt river. So relaxing! It was really flowing too, so that was nice. The fourth was nice and quiet. Kar came home from Showlow and we ended up getting a small storm. Tuesday night we had the biggest dust storm I've ever seen in my life. Of course I got stuck in it. I called mom and dad on my way home, and mom asked if I would pull over and wait out "this dust storm that just hit us." I was just getting onto 10 from work and wanted to get as close to Gilbert as I could. As I passed 40th street, I thought "Damn, I should have listened to my mom." I somehow made it onto 60 (going about 25 mph), and exited at Mill. I pulled into Tom's BBQ parking lot off Baseline and Mill and sat for 30 minutes. Overall, I left the parking garage at work at 733 and got home at 901. So gross.
I worked yesterday. Weekends can be so different than weekdays. The unit just feels different. I think it's because there aren't as many people coming in and out. Today, mom and dad came out and met Kar and I for breakfast at Joes. They came over after breakfast and Dad and I ran to Home Depot for a new thermostat and some other little things. We got back and Kar and Dad put together a new wardrobe for the extra bedroom. Mom and I cleaned the laundry room, changed the air filters (so so so so gross), took the dogs for a ride, and just got things picked up and put together. The wardrobe took forever to put together but Kar and Dad did it and it looks great. We did a quick run to Goodwill, Big Lots, Sam's Club and Walmart. I started the attack on my room and am proud of myself for getting as much done as I did. Although, I cannot wait for Thursday so I can keep my momentum going, hopefully!
