The Past Week

Last Friday morning Brandon and his dad flew to Dallas to meet up with B's cousin for their second annual OU/Texas Football game trip. They had a great time, OU won, they played golf, they went to the biggest state fair they've ever seen, they ate at his favorite Mexican restaurant, they stayed in a nice hotel.
Here on Friday Jonah and I had my brother Adam come visit. Adam is working long days in Salt Lake this month, he lives in Arizona. His poor wife and kids are missing him badly. Adam slept over and we had a fun evening and a great day just playing Wii Golf and tickling Jonah.
Saturday afternoon Jonah and I took our first trip into Ikea with "auntie" Jen, my best friend. The store was enjoyable but I was disturbed by the single route you must take which ensures you spend too much time in the store, see every item, and cannot exit quickly. Isn't that a fire hazard?? After Jonah went to bed, Jen and I made cheese fondue and then I headed to a wedding reception where I knew almost no one but quite enjoyed the band. Then we sleptover at Jen's and had fun eating muffins and hanging out the next morning.
Early Sunday afternoon Jo and I met up with aunt Andy, her dog, and G-ma Linda's dog, Cody. We let the dogs play while we chatted before heading back home. We drove thru Park City on the way home just to enjoy the changing leaves and snow on the mountains better. Brandon got home about an hour after us.
Monday and Tuesday I had some sort of stomach virus and was feeling very ill. Tuesday I spent most of the day watching Season 2 of The Office online.
Yesterday I was hired as a substitute teacher for Wasatch High School and also for the Pre-K classes. I told them I would only be available on Fridays (the day they need subs the most). So now I have two weeks to find a Friday babysitter! I'm excited to start and to be back into the world of teaching.
Well, that's all for now, sorry I'm too lazy to post pictures at the moment.

So much fun stuff going on! Lucky. Subbing on Fridays sounds so great! What a nice little change of venue.

How fun that your brother visited you, and that you had a great sleepover with your best friend! :D

How unfun that your tummy was sick. :(

I'm excited for you that you'll be substitute teaching! What a contrast...high school and pre-K! :)

What a fun and exciting week!!! I have never been to Ikea...I feel like I am the only one who hasn't, but I am ok with that.

I love Ikea...but there isn't one in Tucson and we never make it to the one in Chandler.

I've thought about substituting. Maybe I'll try it next year when J is in school full-time.
