I Should Be Exercising...


It's no secret that I love to exercise but lately I seem to lack the gusto to go. The weather here in Iowa has been rainy, rainy, humid and rainy. With dark skies and wet pavement it makes me just want to stay inside under a blanket all day. But then at the end of the day comes the guiltiness of being lazy.

So I should be exercising right now but I am finding things to do to put it off until I can't anymore. Thus, the blog post. It should keep me from hitting the gym for about another 15 minutes...

The reason our blog hasn't been updated for awhile is that nothing much has happened. We did drive from Reno, NV to Des Moines, IA and I thought I would have a ton to blog about. It turns out the sagebrush and antelope of Wyoming can lull anyone to sleep and Nebraska, though beautiful, is flat and pretty much the same thing over and over again.

Des Moines is breathtaking, lush and green. The only thing I don't like about it is that I don't know where anything is. Usually I use the mountains to realize what's North and South but here everything is pretty flat and there are so many trees you can't see anything. At least we're breathing good, oxygenated air.

On our way from Reno to Des Moines we stopped in Rupert and Logan to say hi to our families quick. We miss them so much. In Rupert we were able to stop by our lot and see that the foundation for our house has been poured. EXCITING!

Originally our house was going to be finishing by Novemeber 1st, but with interest rates rising our house's deadline has been pushed up. We should be first time homeowners by Septemeber...CRAZY. We are both so excited to have a home of our own and for the opportunity we will have to live in Rupert.

Well, I guess it's off to the gym. Don't get me wrong, I am grateful for the opportunity and time I have to exercise it's just that this murky weather makes me lazy! Until next time...

I can't believe your house will be done by September! That is so exciting! How soon will you move back to Rupert? I am very jealous! We want a house of our own again but it won't happen until Nick finishes school and we figure out where we'll be living. Lets for sure get together when you're back in town! Hopefully we won't be so lame now that I'm not sick and prego anymore! The new restraunts are The Beehive Grill and Elements. We've tried Beehive Grill, it's pretty good! They brew their own root beer and make gelato-yum! I've heard Elements is pretty good, but haven't tried it yet. It sounds like you and Gar are making good memories together! We miss you guys!!!
