Have I mentioned on here lately how much I love my job? It's challenging, overwhelming, difficult, and even stressful but I really like it. There is just so much to learn that I often don't know where to start on the projects that I am given.
In other news, Alison and I got new callings a little while back. She is a ward missionary and I have been called as a counselor in the Sunday School Presidency. Neither of us have had callings anything like the ones that we've got now, but we're both excited for the challenge and the chance to serve.
Last week I bought a Black & Decker battery powered edger. I bought it for $100 and it came with 2 18 volt batteries. Each battery lasted about 20 minutes - which should be good enough for our yard. I used both batteries up because the yard hadn't been edged in over a month and I had to learn how to edge (considering I've only edged once or twice - and both times were in the 90's). I recommend it for people with small yards - as long as you're not expecting too much.
The best news of all is that football season starts in just 24 days - just a little over 3 weeks away! We'll know immediately whether or not the Utes will be any good (assuming that the Wolverines are ready to play). I won't make any bets but I expect they'll be alright.
