"Vege" Day

“You pile up enough tomorrows and you’ll find you’ve collected nothing but a lot of empty yesterday’s . I don’t know about you, but I’d like to make today worth remembering”
-“Oh, so would I…”- Quoted from The Music Man

I whole heartedly agree!!!! I’ve definitely been making anything but empty yesterday’s at least this month.
So Maria and I are currently lounging here watching The Music Man. Today has turned into our “vege” day. You know the day you try to impersonate…. well mimic…. a vegetable such as a couch potato. It’s been a busy couple of weeks… even month…. for both of us. And being busy has been fabulous, but there comes a point where the thought of doing one more thing just makes you want to collapse. That one final thing that turned into the “straw that broke the camel’s back” or that caused Dee to collapse onto the couch around 1 am and say blow it was the thought of leaving before 8am to go hike to Iron Bog Lake. And apparently I’m not the only one that said to blow it. Maria my roommate collapsed on the couch at the same time as I did. Out of exhaustion!!
And when 8am rolled around- out of guilt somewhat, I suppose, since I had been so gung ho about the idea until last night- I texted first Matt who was supposed to go with us- and found out that he was sluffing to sleep as well, and then checked with Emerson to make sure we weren’t going to be sending him off alone into the wilderness- and low and behold he wasn’t planning on going either in fact he hadn’t made it back from working the week in Island Park. He was still sleeping… oopps!!.
So now here we rest watching The Music Man. And I’m going to try to give you a quick update of what I’ve been up to lately. – It’s been nearly a month since I’ve posted last- Unfortunately my internet keeps cutting out too so I doubt I’ll be able to get all my pictures up. (if any… ) but here’s how I’ve been making the “todays” of July worth remembering.
-4th of July weekend typical 4th celebrations plus my roommate and I went to Crater’s of the Moon and did some hiking, up cinder cones and across lava fields etc.
- My friends convinced me to sing karaoke at Applebee’s after FHE
-Survived an audit at work- Not a pleasant week while they were there, nor were the weeks leading up to it
-Walked the greenbelt a few times
-Walked to Taco Time from my townhouse and back with Maria (we figure it was probably close to 4 miles after we were done)
-My mom broke her ankle so I’ve been trying to help out at home and with my grandparents when time and work allow me too
-Was one of the people in charge of a trip to Casper, Wyoming with a group from my YSA branch- we stopped at Independence Rock, Martin’s Cove, crossed the Sweetwater River Pulling a handcart etc. and came back with around 25 mosquito/ horse fly bites
-Had a massive waterfight with some friends followed by a movie night, and had we not had to be responsible and be to work by 8 the next morning we would have gone hot tubbin’ at midnight.
-Had a stake Pioneer Day Celebration followed by Snow cones with friends
-Had a couple of cousins and several friends get married, which unfortunately I was only able to make it to one of them
-Finally hung the pictures that having been laying in our living room waiting to be hung since we moved in two months ago.
-Deep cleaned the kitchen counters and floors and the basement bathroom
-Add in 40 hour work weeks (with the exception of the couple days I took off for the branch trip and a family wedding) Institute on Thursdays, FHE on Mondays, Munch and Mingle, and Break the Fast and whatever other branch activities came up in the month and I’ve been an extremely busy girl.
Here’s to an exciting August and tomorrows to come.
