What should we write about

The problem with being a slacker blogger is that when the time comes to blog again after a year and a half there are too many things to write about. We could write about me getting into Dental Hygiene school, Todd changing majors to Industrial Design, going to San Francisco, going to Disneyland, going to Oregon (twice), buying a new car, winning a $100 Macey's gift card, deciding to move to Oregon for the summer, or just regular day to day stuff I guess. So not much has really even happened. I suppose the most pertinent subject is our decision to leave Provo for the summer.

We've lived in this house for almost 2 and a half years, basically since we've been married. It has been awesome, and considering the circumstances under which we found it, it has been a huge blessing. We did live somewhere else before here after we got married - it was for about 2 months and it ended when the people we shared a house with knocked on our door and just said "Sorry". Sorry for what? We were being kicked out because the house was not technically a duplex and we had an eviction notice saying that we had two weeks to find a new place of residence. Living in Provo, that is not an easy thing to accomplish. However, this place quickly fell into our laps and we have loved it ever since.

So here we are at the end of this semester/time of our lives and we are packing up our house and putting it into storage as we leave this house and ward and venture into a new environment for a few months in Oregon. It definitely is exciting, but somewhat sad to think about the good times Lisa and I have had here. There is a picture my mom has hanging in her house, I believe it is from Martha Stewart, and I feel like it captures the way I feel about leaving here.

I'm just glad you returned to blogging, even if you couldn't decide what the best thing to blog about was. Welcome back!
