Happy Halloween!

September has come and gone...

...and October started with a bang. Not a good bang, but a bang.

October 2, my beloved Grandma Roma passed away (to me, it was rather unexpected - I thought she'd live longer than me) and she's in such a more beautiful place. I miss her more than she could know. Her funeral was beautiful and I'm so proud to be her granddaughter. I had the honor to give her life sketch/eulogy with my sister, Debbra, and I am in awe at her life she had. She was so funny, so determined, so mischevious, giving, and willing. I love her so much.

Earlier that week, I started my new position at the Jordan River Branch. It was a big adjustment, but it's been good. I enjoy the people I work with and the atmosphere of the branch. I just hope I can continue working hard to meet the expectations given to me!

Other news, the son of a gun who robbed us at Murray was caught. I will forever thank whoever the guy is who tipped the cops. Turns out, the same robber robbed a different Credit Union three weeks later and when those pictures came out, I KNEW it was the same guy. I wish he'd understand the stress and emotions he put us all through.

My wonderful baby brother has been out for over a year and is fully enjoying his mission experience. He has been so busy going back and forth between Germany and Austria and loving every minute of it. He's such a fantastic young man and a great missionary. I'm very grateful for him and the blessing he is to our family.

Rho (the sorority) has become a fun thing in my life. After a few awkward weeks, I finally feel like these girls have really become some great friends. We've had some fun activities, fun group dates with some terrific guys and lots of laughs. I'm happy about the decision KayCee and I had in joining and giving it a shot. I recommend it to anyone out there single and adventurous!

I have a feeling my 2009 will be turning around for a GREAT hit for 2010. I have some exciting plans coming up (no I'm not getting married, or pregnant) and I hope to be accomplishing them before the new year comes. We'll see!
