Heee's Baaaack!

Harry the Javelina is back! Brian was working and Harry stopped by the say hi. Well not really...he just eats. All of the wildlife is a nice change up for Brian while he's working and staring out the window.

I really wished we had more exciting news to share with you. We are like the people who have kids and that is all they have to talk about...exact it's all about the wild animals. I am staying busy between work and school and trying to figure out future travel plans. Brian is swamped with work. Aren't we exciting!!

I did get to talk with my sweet friend Chez yesterday for a brief moment. She is in Austin busy with work, a puppy and being a wife. I am so thankful that I have the best friends in the world who I may not get to talk to for two months at a time but when we finally connect it feels like there is no space nor distance between use. Man, I love that girl! Thanks Chez for continuing to be one of my favorite friends!

the snake

Brian has a great view from his office. He saw this little guy (as in over 4 ft long and 3 inches in diameter) slithering around in front of his office.

Last night we had a church picnic. I had volunteered to bring turkey burgers, all the condiments and a dessert. I had not thought about it being 4 pm on a saturday afternoon in the middle of July in TUCSON!!! It was 108 degrees...Brian was not a happy camper. We stayed for about an hour and then left...too hot. We came home, took a quick shower and then went up to the movie theater to see Harry Potter!!

I really enjoyed it. Brian was a little bummed because so much detail from the book was left out.

That's all I've got for now!

Veeves loves bug spray...I just try to avoid the bugs...

With the monsoons rolling through bugs are coming out to play in full force. Last night we were cleaning out Brian's car and the june bugs were every where. They kept flying in my hair and running into my leg. Dingy creatures really! We also have had some new visitors.
The Palo Verde beetle

And are good friend the trantula

They don't really bother us but they are big, nasty and I don't want them to touch me. We went to bed around 10:15 pm last night and I woke up at 10:56 pm (I looked at the alarm clock) screaming. Like seriously, jumped out of the bed, startled Brian screaming. I had a VIVID dream that there was a trantula crawling on our bed right by my face. It was entirely too real of a dream. Brian and I moved all the covered, he looked under the bed, then he laughed at me...go figure. That was a crazy moment.

Lyndsey found a job prospect in Tucson. The U of A has a position available in the theater department. She hasn't applied for it yet nor has she spoken with anyone on at the University...but wouldn't that be CRAZY if she got a job in Tucson. I thought that was pretty exciting!

Brian and I are planning a trip to go visit Veeves in October or November of 2010! I have a year-ish to start saving my pennies! I can't wait!!!!

Here is a fabulous picture of Brian and I having way too much fun with the camera during our 4th of July Extravaganza at the Dycus family home!!
