they call it the top of the world


unfortunately… im not surprised that this blog ended as quickly 

 as it began. Although i’ve been working less here than I am use to working at home, it is more draining. Maybe its living and working in the same place, with the same people, or maybe its just being scheduled to work 13 hour days, and not working that much because I decided to pick up a shift. People come here for the location, not the job, and I think there has been some confusion with the management about this.  

apparently shooting guns is tooo mucchhh fuuuunn.


Emmy left last week, and Ginny left today. Uncle David and Lulu just got in and I am excited for them to have some time out of town, out of state, out of time zone.  

The weather has been pretty iffy the past couple days, about to start snowing again it seems. high 55, low 35 today. Winter is back I suppose, and although i’m not quite ready, it has to be nice for everyone else to come here out of the horrendous heat thats been happening this year. 

<i was all done with my blog when i realized it deleted the second half… lets see if i can remember what i said> 

Other than that not too much going on out here. I think one of my last blogs mentioned a phone interview with Yosemite.  It seemed like it went well enough, but our dates just didn’t seem to match up. Had a phone interview today with a job at a ski resort south of Lake Tahoe. Fortunately, the dates for this one seemed to match up better. I’m feeling like I should be offered the job, but I won’t know more until the beginning of next week. 

Ginny and I went riding yesterday morning. She rode Princess, and I was finally able to ride my little pony Tank. He isn’t too little, but he is just  little kid. We just went on a walk through the aspens, and he was perfect, obviously. 

TANK. my little pony ❤


Most of the wildflowers have died off, but there are some right now, (fireweed, that look similar to milkweed) that turn really beautiful shades of red after their blossoms die, and they are looking super pretty against the white of the aspens bark. 

other than that most exciting things would include my new sleeping bag, and lulu and uncle dave brought me the one thing I have been wanting and didnt tell anyone, outdoor friendly slippers. 

I couldnt ask for more.

its safe to say that pig wrestling is the funniest thing … ever! I have to admit that I was not sure this was the event for me.. but it is hilarious. We got there in time to watch the little kids wrestle with the cutest little pigs and stayed to watch out teams go. Thankfully out girls team was only 2 teams after our boys team because the weather started to take a turn for the worst.

The boys got the pig in the bucket in about 17 seconds, which i think brought them into possibly 4th place; and the girls weren’t able to get their pig in… not for lack of effort though.

nothing less than hilarious

Went to the Gros Ventre friday and went cliff jumping. Just a little cliff though maybe… 30 feet. still fun, but not the nervous butterflies because it wasnt too high.

We ended up having so much fun yesterday. I had the day off, but we waited for a few people to get off and we rented inner tubes and floated down the Snake River from South Park to Hoback Junction. There were a few spots where I hit the current wrong and actually started floating up-stream, but one of my friends brought his kayak which was helpful in bumperboating the inner tubes in the right direction when they got off track. 6 of us went, and it started to rain near the end, but I was too happy to be out on the water to be concerned with a little bit of rain. Makes me miss canoeing at home, but I know Business Time (my sturdy vessel), is in great hands.

Other than that just taking it easy until work today. This week is pay week, and I am thinking of treating myself to a new sleeping bag, because the one I have been using is just too big and too cold.

for all that are interested.. my interview with Yosemite just didn’t seem to go great. I am not overly concerned about it, but I will be hearing from her later this week. The timing and everything just didn’t seem to be matching up for what she needs so we will see.
