[Comments] (6) yada yada yada: Wow. I've been meaning to update for a while now, yada yada yada, it's been a month. Here are the highlights:

For the Fourth of July, we flew JetBlue to Utah. Our teevees were malfunctioning half of the time. But the extra leg room on JetBlue is nice. While in Utah we stayed at Justin's condo in Park City. The pool in the Racquetball Court is pretty cool. It has a water slide and these jets in the pool that shoot you around the pool through these islands, etc. It's kinda like a ride. Logan and I tried to walk against the current and you seriously cannot. It was fun. There is also a rock climbing wall at the condo now. Though it is not very tall, it's pretty tough. Of course, it is also scary because we do not have belay equipment. Yada yada yada Hannah calls that place "Atlantica" now. Because there were so many of us, I, Susie, Erin, Logan, Ember, James, and Hannah slept on the floor downstairs. It was good times.

We also went and visited Grandma June, who was having a very bittersweet day. She went to visit the doctor, yada yada yada, she's not dieing.

We also went to the cabin and had multiple treasure hunts. Susie and I also got up very early and hiked Timp Cave and did the tour. It's a very strenuous hike, yada yada yada there were only five people in our group.

Back at home, we've enjoyed the last of Disneyland. We took Tyler with us one last time before they move to Canada. He thinks the driver on the Casey Jr. Train was very good. And he loves the Winnie-the-Pooh ride. We ate at the Blue Bayou with him (the restaurant in Pirates of the Carribean) and he was so confused that it got dark so quickly. He really thought we were outside. He kept asking me if the stores were closed now. Anyway, when we got back outside and saw the sun he finally realized we were not eating outside. He wouldn't sit still during lunch yada yada yada Susie spilled ranch dressing all over herself. We bribed him out of the park at the end of the day with a Jamba Juice.

Rachel went to Serbia yada yada yada we have a cat. I'm thinkin' she'll be our first and last.

And last but not least: Tomorrow's my 26th birthday yada yada yada I get to come to work!

[Comments] (2) Moving on: One of my coworkers is moving back to Utah. And he's getting a raise to do so. A friend of mine and Susie's just bought a house in Plano, TX, and will be moving shortly. And yet another friend of ours is moving to Arizona. The exodus begins.

Though I'm sad they are leaving for greener pastures (pun fully intended), I'm also happy. Their ability to leave empowers me. Their success at finding decent/good jobs in a smaller market that still supports a one-income home with more than two children gives me hope. My day will come! Until then, I'm stuck with the 405 freeway, a one-bedroom apartment with no cable and no air conditioning, and an indoor cat that thinks our nice, expensive couch is a scratching pole.
