Stuff that Sucks!

Moving to a new place, wether it be a new apartment, house, or cardboard box, holds a sort of magic. The floors are clean and YOU didn't even have to mop them! The corners are cobweb free and YOU weren't the one that had to sweep them out! Everything seems to work and life is perfect.... until you find all the problems that the previous owners hid so well. In our case, the bliss lasted about an hour.

This morning I woke up at 6am on the dot, just like I have for the past week. Not because I set my alarm for that time, but because the house is SO bright when the sun comes up that we wake up convinced it's noon and we've both missed work. I covered my head and rolled over because I refuse to wake up that early. Even if I can't sleep I lay in bed and force myself to stay there because i can't give my mother the satisfaction of knowing her early mornings may have rubbed off on me (they haven't). Anyway, I eventually did fall asleep and I woke up about 2 hours later. After I decided that I couldn't call in sick to work just because it was morning I rolled out of bed and headed to the shower. Once I stepped out of our room I was hit with a wave of 82 degree heat. (Yes, in our house) Because of course our landlord can't find the swamp cooler that is supposed to be hooked up to our window. So I'm already hating this day because 1) I woke up at 6am and 2) It's hotter in my living room than it is on the beaches of CA. So I'm getting in the shower right... and I turn on just the right amount of hot and cold and then I turn the middle nob that starts the shower and who would guess... it twists off into my hand. So I'm standing there with the shower nob in my hand and water is spurting out from the wall and the spout and I can't get it to stop but I really need a shower and I'm already gonna be late for work. Even Jack with all his mechanical experience couldn't get it to work. It was quite a morning! But no worries, calls have now been placed to the landlord to check and make sure that yes, they are coming over today to put in a new AC and they will send someone over asap to fix our shower.

So lucky us, for now we are living in a bright, 82 degree house that has no shower. Anyone want to come visit us?

New Stuff

Welcome to our blog! Jack and I never have enough time to call and catch up with all the people we want to so we thought we would start updating everyone here. Not that our lives are very exciting or anything, but some of you might possibly be interested in whats going on.

Life has been SO crazy lately. Jack and I both started new jobs a couple of months ago. Jack is now working at Nuskin Enterprises. He talks on the phone to very important people including President Bush's daughter... thats actually a true story (she was really stupid.) The company treats their employees very well and he gets to sit in an air conditioned office so that's fun for him. I am now working as a Receptionist at Clifford Motors. It's not the most exciting job but I enjoy working with people and it's fun to get out of the house. I also talk to extremely important people on the phone... including Thurl Bailey. Yep that's a true story to. Aren't you glad you are all friends with such cool people.

We also just moved to a new apartment! It was kind of a spur of the moment move. We had been thinking of moving to Orem for a couple of months now so I had just randomly been looking at the classifieds. I found one in our price range that we went and looked at and we fell in love with it, filled out an application, and rented it within a span of 24 hours. We hadn't planned on moving till August but the landlord wanted someone in there within the next week so we spent a stressful couple of days trying to get someone to rent our old place and trying to pack and clean. It all worked out though and we are now in a really nice 2 bedroom place that's minutes away from Jack's school so it works out much better for us.

I just celebrated my 22nd birthday on the 9th. I had a whole weekend of birthday celebrations so it was great. We started the festivities by having some much deserved girl time while Joan and I (just so all of you can be in the loop- Joan and Steve are our best friends here whom we do everything with so a lot of our updates will most likely include them) went and got pedicures. Then we all went to dinner and a movie. Then Sunday we headed back to Duchesne where my mom cooked me an amazing birthday dinner topped off with the best birthday cake ever! Monday was my actual birthday and Jack spoiled me way more than I deserved. He gave me a ton of amazing presents and then he surprised me and took me to the Rodizio Grill for dinner in Salt Lake. I have the best hubby ever! But now life is back to normal and I have to get used to being a 22 year old.

Jack is trying to get used to living with a 22 year old as well. He reminds me all the time that I'm old. Of course he will be 25 on his birthday and he's already sick about it. He's been staying busy with work and he's started writing political articles. You can read his writings at I'm always trying to think of a way to get his articles noticed. He really has a gift. If any of you have any ideas let us know. For now he's just enjoying his summer break from school. He's headed back in the fall and hopefully he'll be completely done with school in 2 years. Who knows what will happen after that but that's the tentative schedule as of now.

And there you have it, a quick update on the life and times of the Ady family. I really do plan on updating this a couple times a week (as long as something exciting happens) so check back every once in a while and then we won't feel so bad for not calling.
