Blast From The Past

So here I am, sitting in at my parent's house in Iowa and waiting for my 10 year high school reunion to happen. I've been helping get the reunion together for a couple of months now. I haven't done much, just collecting money and making sure the proper people get paid! There was a pre-reunion bash last night at some bar called Tonic. It was pretty fun. I think that the most fun part was seeing my sister, Ruth, and her boyfriend, Tim. I haven't seen her in a while.
Since I have been here I have just been running around getting ready for the reunion and looking for lost things of mine in my parent's basement. I found letter and papers from my mission and old pictures!! I'm looking forward to looking through them and showing them to Jenn. I also found my old yearbooks that she'll get to look through and laugh at, I'm sure.
I am on a short break from school right now. It starts up again at the beginning of June. I'm taking 2 classes the first half of the summer and 1 the second. Great fun!
That's it for now! I promise to put pictures of the reunion and Iowa up on my next blog entry...

The First of What Could Be Many

Hello everyone, or just the one person, reading this! How are you? Seeing as how I'm going to have some more free time on my hands this summer than I did during the school year, I'm going to write all about what's going on in my life! Aren't you lucky!?
Right now I am trying to get rid of pink eye. I've been fighting with it, on and off, for about 2 months now. Ridiculous! That's all there is to it. I've been reduced to putting cotton balls, that are soaked in boiled salt water, on my eyelids for 5 minutes. Fun stuff! I was reading that fresh breast milk works wonders, but I don't have any of that so I am stuck with cotton balls drenched in salt water.
I have braces now! They are a pain in my booty. I tried the Invisalign thing. I wasn't very good at wearing them consistently and so I decided to go with something I have to keep on. They're supposed to be on for a year but I hear that they tell people a shorter time frame than what it really takes. So we'll see!
I've been Program Director at The Arc of Tempe for about 7 months now. It's been a fun, interesting, stressful experience! Overall, it's been great though. I love my job! I get paid to play, teach life-skills, and work with some great people. You should check out our website! It's,
That's all for now! I'll write more later this week, probably.
