This week at work was crazy and long. Let me paint a picture..let me lower the bar: it started off with me being in the truck with a guy who had B.O. on the first morning, before we had even driven down to southern Utah. This wasn't just any ordinary B.O...this was B.B.O, it was beyond B.O. It was alive and crawling around the truck. The kind that's pungent, stings the nostrils. It was terrible. I couldn't breathe, I couldn't sleep, I just had to sit there the entire 4 hours down with it. Plus, he was in our truck for the next 2 days also and it smelled even worse then. So that was the first half of the week. Then, we decided to go up to a site that was high up in the mountains on the day that it was supposed to storm. So we go up this dirt road with a big sign that says "don't drive when wet". That should have been a good enough warning. Anyways, it started to storm when we were up there..but not just storm....SNOW. Yes, it started snowing. And I only had shorts and a hoodie on. Everyone always yells at me to wear more clothes but I just can't make myself. I just think it should be warm so i wear clothes like it is. We were all dying. I couln't move my hands, I could barely think or use the scanning machines. It was like a blizzard. We got so wet and cold that we took the rest of the day off. And it was a nightmare getting back down the mountain. Then, I was cold and wet the next 2 days. Fun... Anyways, I'm just happy to be home for a long weekend. The End.

New Job

Last week was my first week back to work. We're working in the southern region of the state which is beautiful. Unlike what most of you might think, it was very cold. We are staying in trailors this year and just my luck, my trailor has no heat or Also, the toilets are gross, but that's another story. It has been no fun being away from home all week, but work is good. When i came home this weekend, Jess surprised me with the table we wanted from target. Our apartment looks great, and we really really want to stay after the summer. It's classy. So tomorrow, it's back to work...I'm not excited but I'm making good money. I can make it another week, then we have a long weekend. That's all for now.

California...(said in a way from the movie "The Wizard" which only BJ will get)

Jess had to come to the library here in town to finish up some Forest Service paperwork so here I am on the computer. We got married!!! aaaahhhh. Thanks to everyone again. California is beautiful but expensive. We're having a blast. Our place is amazing and very very classy. Can't wait to see everyone again, but that means that work is getting closer and closer. Blaaahhhh. Okay, we love y'all. See you soon...
