Utah vs Houston

Ever since Jon created this blog for us I've been meaning to get on here and post something and also make it a little bit more... feminine? or maybe just not so plain.

Well here's the first post at least.

As I'm sure most of you know we did finally make it safely to Utah after spending an exciting day in Madisonville. We walked down "main street" that night to go to dinner and had a little trouble deciding between our 5 options. When we got back to our hotel room Jon spent the rest of the evening trying to figure out a way for us to go swimming since our swimming suits were packed away in our car, locked in a mechanics shop. He really didn't think skinny dipping would be too big of a deal since we were pretty sure we were the only ones in the hotel even though it was "the last available room in town". It struck me as funny that the only available room in town was a King Suite... oh well.

Utah is good. We're glad to be back around our families.

I've been amazed at how much faster running errands is in Utah compared to Houston. I was supposed to meet Jon at 2:oo for lunch one day and gave myself an hour and a half to run two errands. Which would have been cutting it close in Houston. As I left the house I was worried that I would have to call him and tell him I was running a little bit late. I was accounting for all of the crowds I would encounter in the stores. (I should preface this by saying that we never waited in line for less than a half hour to check out at walmart in Houston.) Needless to say it didn't take anywhere near that long so I decided to sift through all the baby clothes at Target and then finally gave up after a bit and sat in the parking lot at Jon's work for 45 minutes.

The baby is quite active and kicking right now, which might account for why it's almost 5 in the morning and I've been up for three hours. This has been a common occurence throughout this pregnancy but usually I feel at least a little bit tired.

My real problem is that I have too much energy right now. I have a case full of strawberries waiting for me in the kitchen to make into strawberry jam and thats what I would be doing right now if only everyone else woke up with a lot of energy at 2am.

That wouldn't be unreasonable... right?
