Things have picked up speed, considerably

Three big things to hit in this post, and then I really need to head to the mall to look for shoes for my sister's wedding...

  1. I passed my criminal background check with flying colors. I have to go into the University on Monday to fill out all the new employee paperwork and get my direct deposit set-up. Earlier this afternoon I talked to my boss, B, and I'm hitting the ground running. He has a big "field day" (where we put on various demonstrations for local agricultural producers) on the 18th and is horribly behind. I've already got a list about a mile long of things to do.
  2. We signed the purchase contract on our Utah house last week. Closing date is tentatively set for the 11th. Meaning we should have money in hand that day.
  3. I found a great house yesterday that just came on the market on Wednesday. It's a newer home, built in 1997 in a quiet little cul-de-sac of a subdivision on the west side of town. The location is fantastic--a nice subdivision on the outskirts of town (our backyard looks onto an alfalfa field), C can still see the mountains although much more distantly than in Utah, at most an eight minute commute for C into work, a 5 minute commute from the interstate entrance/exit, a ten minute drive from Idaho Falls airport--the best of all things possible for location. It's got a nice fenced in yard for the dogs and 75% more square footage than our old house. And the best part, is that it's OURS! We put in an offer this morning and it's been accepted already.

Well heck you guys have been busy...

Regarding number 1... I knew you'd pass with flying colors... I think you may have even less speeding tickets than I do ;)

Regarding number 2- woohoo yeah it's about time.

Regarding number 3 - pictures? Seriously pictures?

Congratulations on all 3!

Sami ~ This girl has NO speeding tickets. Can honestly say that I've only been pulled over once in my life. Damn Brown City cops!

Okay you suck... seriously only once and only one ticket? I'd like that kind of luck... however my luck is having a cop as a husband and well... a lead foot in regards to the gas pedal... the two don't like one another. Enough said :)

hey - I remember getting pulled over once by officer Dan on your behalf... had to get you home by a certain time??? :D

Those were the days... much simpler time.

Yay for work - maybe it'll help the days go by a little faster for you. Congrats on the house! It's beautiful. Nice to be able to check even more things off the "to do" list before your little bean arrives.
