Our First Visitors

It's May 1st, 2005! My God! Time flys when you're lovin' life!
Loving our lives in Sunny Arizona! I don't think people really understand how good it feels to know you are going to wake up to a sunny day, everyday. Yeah, summer will suck with all the heat but it beats one winter in Utah.

Work is going really well. I enjoy everyone I work with. There are those few weirdos that have voices like fingernails on a chalkboard and those that complain constantly but otherwise everyone is awesome. I have a lot of down time which I enjoy most of the time. If I get too bored I go to and play Jewel Quest.

Last weekend Shane and Jessie came down to visit us and go to a Nascar race at PIR. It was a lot more fun than I ever would have guessed. The cars go sooo fast! It's so different in real life than on TV. A monsoon dropped by just before the race and we got soaked. But it was still really fun. Nascar fans are an oddity that I don't think I can explain. Such a wide variety of weirdos, but we did see George Lucas! And some famous retired racecar driver, don't remember his name.

We went Frisbee Golfing that Sunday, had a lot of fun and enjoyed the park. Mazzy was sooo warn out, she napped almost constantly for the next two days.

Went back to work feeling like I needed a vacation from the busy weekend we had. Five minutes before I left for lunch I was informed that we didn't get a lunch for the whole week because half our department would be in training! I was so pissed and so angry and so having a bad day. But I got over it the next day while I was eating the catered lunch they brought us. But I was sure glad to have the week over to begin my relaxing weekend.

We went to Petsmart today and bought a crate for Mazzy. Since Jory is going to be looking for a job now, we have to get her used to being in a crate while we are gone. She has serious separation anxiety! We set it up tonight and put in a toy and a pig ear. She seemed pretty weary of it at first but after we gave her a treat for goig pee on the pad, she took her treat in the crate and ate it there. So I think this is going to work! Once Jory starts working, I'll probably come home on my lunches to check in on her and let her out to pee.

Mazzy is so cute, we've had so much fun with her! GranSandy sent her a package with a new toy and Famous Dave's BBQ Sauce for us! She loves her toy and we play catch with it all the time now. Thankfully we have a Famous Dave's across the street practically but we were still very thankful for the sauce. You can never have enough FD's bbq sauce in the house.

We've had some offers on the house, but nothing has panned out yet. Selling a house in a different state is not something I would suggest. It's very stressful even though we don't have much to do with it. The first offer was laughable, and well the second was just as laughable.
We shouldn't have even countered the first offer, we should have told them to go to hell.
We're having problems with our builder, he's stopping real estate agents and telling them he can build our exact house for $10,000 cheaper than our asking price. Go ahead and build a house with Highmark and then they will see what we've had to put up with. They such and build horrible homes that fall apart. I can't wait to sell our house so we can start the verbal attack on Highmark! Everyone will hear about what a dirty little company they are.
I can't wait!!!

Anyway, it's my weekend and I don't want to think about that right now. Tomorrow we're going to check out another Frisbee Golf park up in Fountain Hills, I think. I'll write and let you know how it was.
