some pics from the hike. we didn't make it to the very top. but we were close. i stepped over a snake. saw some beautiful views. i like hiking. it's very cool. the coolest hike i have ever been on was the one i did on kauai with brianne. i still think about it. i told david--this hike reminds me of that one. except when you looked around you saw lush green trees, sheer cliffs and miles of ocean. so except for that it was the same. except for that cool crocodile tree. i'm pretty sure they didn't have that one there.

ok--it's official. i now work for uhaul. i knew my non-violent, anti-crank taking, non-alcoholic, anti-shoplifting personality would be a good match. i am now the official prescott, az uhaul storage manager. my new boss seems very nice. while he interviewed me this morning he was telling me part of my job required a personality that could work alone. DUDE--hire me now. i was meant to be here. plus i pretty much work while the girls are in school. no weekends. BENEFITS. people--i get a 401K. i know--it will only have $2 in it. but it's mine. and before you know it--that $2 will turn into ONE MILLION pesos. maybe.

it really is an answer to prayer. craig (my new boss) kept telling me during the interview that he didn't know why, but he just felt i was the right person for the job. seriously--he said it like 3 times. in fact he hired me on the spot and when i walked out of that office there were two other people waiting to get interviewed. so i felt good. so good that i went out and got wendy's for lunch. and they gave me fries. I ATE EVERY LAST FRY.

lastly, some funny kid things. carson and i were in the car today and she was telling me how in her science class she sometimes 'dozes off' while the teacher is giving instructions. would this be the class that you are getting a C in? yep. do you think that maybe you should try NOT to doze off during the "instruction" part. yeah--it's just so boring. like my teacher is giving the instructions and i am dozing and all of a sudden it's a quiz. then she says "i doze off in math too." and then the lightbulb goes off--oh, i'm getting a C in there too. do you think we can put an end to the dozing problem? well, i doodle in language arts. grade? C. 'nuff said.

i actually did a digi layout. i have been lacking in creativity lately and this was an attempt to jump back in. i know. looks like i was dozing...L

I am so happy for you. The hike looks gorgeous mom! Plus the digi scrap is way cool. Oh Carson, I love her. She needs to get some sleep, she's like her momma.

I love the Crocodile tree and you are very brave walking over that snake. Good luck in the world of employment. I hope it is a good match for you and your family.
