Quite a Mouthful!

Hello all my lovely friends and family! Things have been happening so quickly in my life these days, I feel somewhat guilty for not writing more to help keep everyone up to date. There is a lot of ground to cover today, so let's hit the ground running! I will try to be better in the future so my blogs will be more frequent and shorter/sweeter; but for now, bear with me as I get you up to speed!

Snowbird wasn't very busy and they are based on a seniority booking system, with me the low-man on the totem pole. I had to go on-call during my shifts, but I had to call in every hour to see if I had a massage and drive all the way up (no matter the weather conditions), even for one massage. It didn't seem worth it to me and since my monetary means at this point in my life allow me the opportunity to move, Carpe Diem! As most of you know, I have been wanting to move to San Diego ever since I went to Corps School there in 1996! It's about time I pursue that dream, don't you agree?

I am now unemployed (YIKES!) and counting down the hours until I climb into my Tacoma and embark on the next chapter of adventure in my life. Leaving is bittersweet; it has been good to be with mom, Becca and Jared, Monica, and little Crystal too. I can't forget Aunt Karen and Grandma and Grandpa Mellot, Vic and Carolyn, and the list goes on and on. It's so nice to have your family so close to you and I am afraid I did not take advantage of those opportunities this time around, I am sorry about that.

On a lighter note, I did take advantage of the powder while it was here (although I was hoping for another good dump before I left*pout*, I might go snowboarding in Jackson Hole, but I am not sure if I want to take my snowboard and gear with me when I move).
At any rate, I AM SO PROUD OF ME!!! I went up to the Canyons all by myself to go snowboarding! I took some pretty hard falls; my last run down, the first time I went, I fell into a pretty hard faceplant and bruised my nose and forehead!I decided to get back on the horse and two days later I went
back for more punishment! I had the BEST day ever! I only went down black diamonds, I didn't fall as hard or as much, it was a gorgeous day, and I even got asked out by an extremely sexy 22 year-old! I had such a good time! I hope that when I come back to get Luna, there will be some good snow, because I will still have my season's pass!
*The Pictures are a before and after Snowboarding! YIKES!! I look too old for this crap!*

*Deep Breath* Phew! Don't worry, we're almost done!

Well, it is here! Moving day! Oh moving day! How I love and hate you all at the same time!

I am too excited! To give everyone an idea of my grandiose itinerary: I will be heading out of Orem this coming Sunday, January 18 and heading up to Jackson Hole, Wyoming for a quick tour of, from what I hear, that beautiful city. Then, on to Seattle where I shall enjoy the wonderful company of my illustrious cousin, Alexis LaFlamme. I will be attending her 33rd birthday party! Can you believe we are all getting so old?! What a ride! I might see my friend Zack too, if he can fit me into his busy schedule.

After Seattle, I will be continuing my journey on down to Chico, California, to see my very dear friend Wendy Daye Anderson, whom I haven't seen in almost SIX years, and all her little ones!!

The plan from there, my friend Amy will fly to Chico and drive down to Santa Ana (via San Francisco and a super fun road trip) with me, where I will be staying with Amy and her husband until I find my own place in San Diego! What fun!

Well, today is my packing day and I shouldn't procrastinate that!! I love you all!
