Updates Galore

Well, 2011 is nearly half way over and I haven't done a great job of keeping this updated this year. Maybe that's because we haven't had much to report so I'll try to provide a brief summary of what's up in the Hart House.

1. We haven't been able to travel. Turns out, being unemployed hampers our ability to vacation. This has been a challenge for me and I eagerly await getting back to my travels. We are currently trying to convince my dad to plan a McCall, ID family vacation so that we can go river rafting, jet skiing, biking and golfing. We are also planning to take a nice long vacation after Jeremy finishes school and before he starts his job.

2. Speaking of jobs...we have one! Well we've actually had one for a really long time it's just that now we are more public about it because it is closer. Jeremy has a job offer from Deloitte to do IT Auditing in Kansas City starting in September.

3. So Kansas City. That's right we're moving to Tornado Alley. The Great Midwest! Dorothy, Toto, BBQ, Noodling...yep all of it! That will be us in a few short months. We're really excited and happy to have this opportunity. We don't yet know what the plan is for dealing with our condo but I'm sure we'll get it figured out soon, at least I keep praying for a miracle and I think it's on its way.

4. Running. We are currently 85% done with training for a half-marathon. I have no idea why we are doing this. We are running in the Utah Valley Marathon on June 11 and I am terrified. Hopefully I don't die. I just may though. Jeremy may have to carry me on his back to get me to finish. I know, I am weak and it isn't even a full marathon but I am really bad at running.

5. If it ever stops raining here we plan to do a lot of mountain biking this summer before we move. Has it always rained like this in Utah? It is getting really depressing.


  1. Congrats! Almost everyone I've never lived in the midwest, unless Texas counts, but I've never heard anyone complain about anything except their lack of mountains and abundance of tornados. I guess that means you will have to take up road biking or storm chasing or something else exciting. Way to be brave and do a half-marathon. I am not even brave enough for a 10k.

  2. Yay! Updates! It was so good to see you guys during our brief trip. I'm excited for all of the things that you are looking forward to - traveling, jobs, moving, running and EVERYTHING else. Love you!

  3. First of all I think all those tornados are a good eason to STAY here! Second of all....YOU AND JER ARE TRAINING FOR A HALF????????? So WERE Jason and I! I use the word were becuase we were suppose to run Monday in the Capitol Hill half but it was cancled. (very good thing for me because I need more time to train. I am SOOOOOOOOOO bad at running and I've been having trouble with my knees). We should run together.

    P.S. the soccer game Saturday was COLD and very rainy...thanks for all that rain! ;-)

    P.S.S We can't wait to get together for dinner

  4. Thanks for the updates. I wish you the best in the midwest. I think you will love it. Congrats to your brother; he is awesome. I am sorry to hear about your Grandma. She sounds really cool. I never knew she was from Cardston--we were friends with someone from Cardston.
