We ended up going to St. George Saturday to meet John and SueAnn. They were SO NICE to pack up a bunch of our boxes in the truck and meet us halfway so that we actually have some things to move in! That made for a full day of driving! The truck we drove only has a cassette player, and we only have the first 2 tapes of the Gordon B. Hinckley biography, so we listened to that twice on the way down. If I was getting sleepy, Scott rolled down the window and the snow came in to liven me up!
Dane and Korine had us over for dinner and an Oscars party last night! Our friends take SUCH good care of us. I can't wait until we have a place of our own and can begin to return the kindness! Scott is starting work on Wednesday, and yes, I am still searching. I've been a little busy finding a place to live and watching craigslist for mattresses and things, but hopefully I can focus more on getting a job! Our goal was to have a job and a place to live by March 5, which is the day we accepted the job offer, and signed the contract, so we are HAPPY and recognize the many blessings which are ours.
And in the meantime, we've been dog-sitting Joey. I never thought I would share my pillow with a puppy, or wake up to a dog licking my face. We take her out to go potty several times a day and bring her on outings so she can get out of the house. Wow. I've never met such a high-maintenance dog. Whenever Scott talks about wanting a dog I tell him "you got me!"
Lots of love!
