On the MOVE...

We found out a few weeks ago that Jack was selected for a special training, in residence. He is very excited about being selected! The school is in Montgomery, Alabama.
This means... we're moving! We'll be leaving Utah sometime in July. We have rented a house there, in Prattville, about 10 miles from Montgomery. We will be there 1 year

I have given my notice at work, and will be there through the end of March. I'm sad to leave-- I have really loved my time at IKEA.

In mid-April we will be headed to San Diego for about a month, where Jack will attend an aqusistions class, and I will enjoy some time with my family. I have cousins that live in San Diego, LA, and the OC. My parents will also drive down for a visit) It will be nice to spend time with them, and to enjoy the beach, before we move. We'll return home the end of May, and have about a month to get our house SOLD.

Luckily, the movers care of the hardest part- packing up all our stuff, and moving it out there. We just have to drive out in our cars.
It's another adventure, and we can't wait!

Happy New Year!

We had a quiet evening at home New Years. We watched the ball drop in NYC, drank sparkling cider, and marvelled at Dick Clark's ever-young appearance.
On New Years Day we watched the Rose Parade on TV, then went snow shoeing in Weber canyon. The fresh snow was beautiful, and we had a great time! (Jack of course, is a marathoner, so I had a hard time keeping up with him.)

So, itAdd Image's the 11th today, and we finally took down our Christmas tree last night. It was a few weeks later this year, but we're always a little sad when it comes down.

I already miss the twinkling lights. I love their cheerful greeting as I stumble out of bed and am getting ready for work when it's still pitch black outside.

It's this time of year, after all the fun of the holidays, that I start dreaming of some nice tropical beach somewhere. I need sunshine in my life. Maybe it's time to plan another scuba trip...
