It has been quite a month. I first had the flu, then pneumonia, and then hives. The pneumonia and hives were during finals week, which didn't help with studying and taking my exams. We then went to Green River with the Bowthorpe family. It was my first camping experience with them. It is one that I will not forget anytime soon. We saw some great history and geology. We visited Thompson Canyon were I spent a day last summer mapping. We proceeded to the San Rafael Swell. It was my first time going to the swell. It was pretty amazing. I didn't realize all of the hummocky and trough cross-bedding in the Navajo Sandstone. On Sunday it decided it wanted to rain, hard. Everything and everyone was soaked. We had lunch at Bret and Erica's that day.
On Friday April 29th I bought my new Toyota Tacoma from work. It is an 2001 mineral silver (BMW color equivalent) color. I have had a lot of people ask me if they can have it. At the same time it is sad to see the Jeep go. It is like saying good bye to an old friend. I picked it up from work Friday night and it was like an old glove. It just fit right. The Jeep and I had about 80,000 miles together over the last 5 years.
We had a family yard sale on Saturday. It was cold, but a lot of fun. Some people were great to work with, while the first ladies who showed up were rude, and inconsiderate. I am amazed at some of the comments people make. Do they not have a filter, or realize that their thoughts are being heard by others, as they open their mouths? It was good to de-junk the clutter from our lives.
