I have lately been enjoying differences between Matt and me. Here are a few:
  • Matt starts writing an "s" by starting at the bottom. I start at the top.
  • Matt faces the water when taking a shower. I turn my back on it.
  • Matt swears by Macs. I prefer a PC. (Although, I admit that I am one day away from purchasing a Mac. My preferable PCs don't last past three years, while Matt's Mac is going on five. The cost savings are just too darn convincing.)
  • Matt likes to stretch before doing exercise. I always prefer stretching afterward.
  • Matt maintains order by throwing away (stuffing in the closet). I indulge in saving and organizing. (Okay, so I indulge in organizing--I do think I save too many things that just aren't that necessary.)
  • Matt actually likes the crawl space in our house. I pile up stuff outside of it for him to put in it, since I don't necessarily enjoy "crawling" around in our storage room.

Summer 2009

I graduated from high school 10 years ago! I actually really liked my high school cohort and was looking forward to going to my reunion last weekend, but ended up having to work all Saturday to get ready for a big presentation last week for work.

Yesterday, though, I swore off doing any T-Splines work for the first Saturday in memory and made a nice batch of cinnamon rolls, the kind that takes 5 hours to make, start to finish. This was very relaxing and they tasted divine.

Other things we've been up to lately:

Tricia bakes, too! Here she is making Rainbow Cake.

Before the Lavender Days 5K in Mona, UT, with my brother- and sister-in-law.

My grown-up baby sister's prom. We felt some satisfaction in seeing her dressed up for the date after spending days prom dress shopping with her. Pretty fun.
