May Days

We never thought there would be a day when our lives would be enveloped by the following boring things: blinds, floor polish, topsoil, curtain rods, and sod. Every free second has been spent getting our house set up, but it's finally coming together (and we actually have really enjoyed it). It's fun to have our own space to care about and make our own.

Let's just say that curtains = hell on earth. We bought and returned curtains and curtain rods from about ten different stores until we finally found a winning combo. Hanging them was a whole different story. 

We also tried to save some money by doing blinds ourselves. After hours of blood, sweat, tears, and many a wall patching (and some help from family), we finally got it down. Last night, we ceremoniously hung the last one. We no longer live in a fish bowl! 

The warmer weather has slowly brought back our desire to run. It's been nice to have new turf to explore like the golf course, Jordan River Parkway, and lots of trails. 

We also like spending time outdoors with him.

Unfortunately, he's getting tired of only having a 3'X5' patch of grass to play on. This next week (let's be honest - it will probably take a few) we're going to attempt to put in our yard. I've actually had a lot of fun drumming up these plans, and I'm hoping that we can make it happen.

Tanya is in her last month of school for the year. She says it's flown by, but she's excited for some time off. She started and coaches the dance company at her school, and this past week they had their first performance at an assembly and it was a success!

I'm officially done with my first semester of Grad School. It's been a lot harder than I thought, but I'm learning a lot. This past week and a half we've been on break, which has been so nice. Only having to worry about work is so easy, and I (already) look forward to that being a thing in a short year and a half.
