"How Many Babies Will You Have?"

So the big update is that Michigan is more of a funny ha ha entertaining adventure than anything. The best part would be the funny comments my niece or nephews make to me. For example, yesterday, out of nowhere, my four-year-old niece asked me, "Aunt Sara, when you get married, how many babies will you have?"

I was speechless for about two seconds. Then the conversation proceeded as follows:

"I don't know. I guess we will have to see."

"You can only have one baby."

"One? But I would like my babies to have brothers and sisters."

"No, only one. Well, you could have two. Two babies inside your tummy and then the two babies would make twins."

So funny when I figured out that she meant how many babies am I going to have inside my tummy when I get pregers. Such a weird thought... But I think it comes from the fact that her mom is expecting a baby in February. So the whole pregnancy thing and women having babies is definitely on her mind.

Across Country

Well, sort of across the country. I traveled through about seven states: Utah, Wyoming, Nebraska, Iowa, Illiniois, Indiana, and Michigan.

I set out one morning in my beautiful Subaru Impreza.
I drove and drove and drove some more until I got to the great state of Wyoming. This was the place I was looking forward to the least. There just isn't much there. However, every once in a while I would see an awesome-looking rock. . . . And then I would pass it.

In the photo below, you can see wind mills on the hill off in the distance. I did enjoy that part.
 I then drove and drove and drove some more until I got to Nebraska. There isn't a lot in Nebraska either. But at least the speed limit was 75 most of the way.
After a good rest in North Platte, Nebraska, in a funny smelling hotel, I drove and drove and drove some more until I got to Iowa. This place had some interesting crevices in the land. Can't really see it in the photo below, tough.
I kept driving and drove and drove and drove some more, occasionally stopping for gas or to use the restroom, until I made it to Illinois. Did you know that when you first get to Illinois, you don't see much. It is mostly farm country. I didn't see much city until my last day of driving, after spending the night in a more up-scale hotel that still smelled funny. I think it's because of the smoking. I hate the lingering smell of tobacco.
 And then I drove and drove and drove some more until I passed Indiana in the blink of an eye and drove into Michigan. This picture is a little blurry, probably because it was raining.
So, that is where I am. And that is the great adventure I went on this last week. I made it safely to Michigan and to a warm bed that did not smell funny.

Although, I should point out that I did stay in non-smoking rooms, but the lobby sure did smell yucky.

So, now I am enjoying the fresh, humid Michigan air and waiting for some work from the company I have contracted with. La la la la la. (Twiddle thumbs.)

I'm Back, Like a TV Show after a Long Summer

So, Jujube, a long, long time ago, taught me the importance of letters. So... here is another post filled with important letters. Enjoy!

Dear blog,
I am terribly sorry I have neglected you. But you will be pleased to know that now that my grandpa's book is finished (and I mean completely finished) I have more time to devote to you and my new blog: I might even write my book. I am liking this idea more and more.So, in short, I will be seeing your much more frequently... I  hope.

Dear Salt Lake,
Why do you hate me so. Commuting to you is killing my sleep schedule. And what happened to meeting cute guys on the bus? How come everyone is married? How come I always fall asleep while riding the bus and wouldn't notice a cute guy if he were even sitting next to me?
I'm thinking a change is in order. We shall see.

Dear house,
I love you. Even if you don't have a fireplace. You are getting more beautiful all the time. Do you like the new coffee table I got you. Pretty, huh? The only problem would be the people jumping around upstairs. Are they training for the Olympics?
A very satisfied occupant

Dear body,
I know, I need to take better care of you. You scream for exercise. Well, I have a treat for you.The clubhouse has a treadmill. Yay!
