Truths of Life

Truths of Life

Saw this on my friends blog and was literally crying I was laughing so hard! Totally brightened my day and I hope it does yours too!

1. I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.

2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

3. I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.

4. There is great need for a sarcasm font.

5. How the heck are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

6. Was learning cursive really necessary?

7. Map Quest really needs to start their directions on #5. I'm prettysure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

8. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.

9. I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.

10. Bad decisions make good stories.

11. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren't going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.

12. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blue Ray? I don't want to have to restart my collection...again.

13. I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page research paper that I swear I did not make any changes to.

14. "Do not machine wash or tumble dry" means I will never wash this - ever.

15. I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello? Hello? Dang it!), but when I immediately call back, it rings nine times and goes to voicemail. What did you do after I didn't answer? Drop the phone and runaway?

16. I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not seeing anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste.

17. I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.

18. I think the freezer deserves a light as well.

19. Sometimes, I'll watch a movie that I watched when I was younger and suddenly realize I had no idea what the heck was going on when I first saw it.

20. I would rather try to carry 10 plastic grocery bags in each hand than take 2 trips to bring my groceries in.

21. The only time I look forward to a red light is when I'm trying to finish a text.

22. I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.

23. How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear or understand a word they said?

24. I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up to prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers and sisters!

25. Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty, and you can wear them forever.

26. There's no worse feeling than that millisecond you're sure you are going to die after leaning your chair back a little too far..

27. Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is.

28. Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, finding their cell phone, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey - but I'd bet my behind everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time!

Feelin' Like Grown Ups

So, pretty much the last time we posted was when we were moving from Yorba Linda up to are a few quick life updates:

Jess is working for a Chiropractor and learning all about the body. We are both enjoying the free adjustments and learning how to live a life free of subluxations ;)

We are on a co-ed soccer team and are obviously dominating. We are playing with some of Mike's friends from Rocklin and this season Eric, Rob and Cindy are playing with us, so it's really fun. We have pictures somewhere, so we'll find them and post when we get a chance (not likely to happen).

We lived with Gregg and Pat for a few months and had a good time hanging out with the fam. Jess and Kyle really hit it off and would stay up til 2am talking and giggling downstairs. After almost 8 months of living with the parental units (almost half of our married life), we decided to find a place of our own. 

We really like living in Rocklin, and have made some good friends in the ward, so we found a nice little apartment just around the corner from Gregg and Pat and so we get to stay in the ward!

We are slowly decorating and liking being 'on our own' more and more everyday.

Before....with our amazing $25 overstuffed chair

Gregg and Pat let us borrow a lovely flowered couch until we could get our own.

And they let us borrow their card table.

But then, we went to the RC Willey Labor Day  sale and found some amazing doorbuster specials, like this table.

And this couch and ottoman!!

We've found that the ottoman is the perfect place to store our Tennis rackets.
It's all coming together.
