April Showers Bring May Flowers; What do May Flowers Bring?

As April draws to a close, I breathe a sigh of relief that I've gotten through another month without any major catastrophes. It's been a good month: birthdays, parties, friends, family, moving. Some things have been stressful, but all around everything has been going well. The worst day for me this month was probably last Thursday, about which I have already posted. What an awful day. The effects of the pepper stuck with me a bit and messed up my system for the next day and a half or so, but not so much that I couldn't do anything. Good thing, too, considering I moved out of Windgate that same afternoon. Yep, got home and immediately loaded up the car, cleaned the bathroom, and got going.

Esther and I moved into our new place on Saturday, and I will say that I never want to move anywhere without Kelly Swan's help, considering he and his tools were extremely convenient. Jeremie, Steve, Chris, and Becky helped us transport, but Kelly was our slave for a couple of hours after the others left. -forgive me a cruel chuckle, heh heh- In all honesty, though, he really was great in helping us out. There was a heck of a lot of stuff left by the previous tenants, so we had to pile that all up and get it out of there because we had no desire to keep things that no one was coming back for. It took us awhile to really get it all put in one spot and out our door (it wasn't gone until yesterday, being tuesday), but it's finally done and we're pretty much all settled! We keep on remembering little things that we need (food items, mostly), but that's not a big hassle (except when we realized last night that neither of us had procured pepper while making dinner--oops). It's a nice little corner of the world, and I'm excited that we have a backyard. And the exciting news is that Becky will move in with us after she graduates in August! So the three of us just can't get rid of each other, which is fine with me. I love my gals.

My parents are coming down to Utah to visit next weekend, and I'm excited to see them. I'll have to drive up to Salt Lake and Ogden (at separate times), but that's all right. They don't have a lot of reason to come down to Provo from there, but if they do, I'll be happy to show them my new digs. They were just in . . . Nebraska, I'm pretty certain . . . last weekend for the National convention that Mom played the piano in (so cool, my mom rocks), and so it seems that they're keeping themselves busy. I'm still trying to figure out when I can go home for a visit, because that would definitely be a trip worth taking.
