Feeling Down

people like to post mean things about me on facebook but they fail to recognize how that affects the people they are talking about or maybe their intentions are to hurt those people...either way, their not worth keeping in my life.

Joys of being a homeowner

I was cleaning my house last night after work because we have some family coming to stay with us in a couple of days and I opened the door to the furnace room only to find this:

This is a picture of our furnace surrounded by water.  It doesn't look as bad as it actually is in this picture because on the other side of the furnace is more water and it is being absorbed into the dry wall. 

You can see the bottom of the dry wall is wet.

Declan is working out of town again so I was a little stressed when I found it and didn't know what to do.  I sent some pictures to Declan and he works with a guy that used to work with furnaces and he said that he will stop by in Thursday to see what's wrong.  Hopefully it's nothing too serious or nothing too expensive.  Yay for being a home owner...

Bear Lake

For Independence Day me, Declan and his family went up to Bear Lake like we usually do every year but this year was a little different.  The water was so high this year that there isn't really any beach left.  We got to Bear Lake Friday night to set up camp and was planning on finding a some sort of a beach on Saturday for us to hang out on.

When Saturday came we were going to go to the North Beach which is the Idaho side and is a state park but when we got there to launch the boat they were going to charge $22 to launch and they also didn't allow dogs on the beach which sucked for us because we had 3 with us. We planned to drive around the lake to try to find another beach and as we were driving the wheel on the boat trailer almost came off. We had to fix the wheel so Declan and his dad took the boat to a repair shop to get it fixed while Declan's sister and I went back to our camp to lay out and get a tan. They got the boat fixed after a couple of hours but the day was pretty much over so we grilled hot dogs and hamburgers at our camp. On Sunday we launched the boat (at the Utah Marina) and found a little beach that we hung out on pretty much the whole day while getting sunburned.  We even made a dutch oven dinner on the beach that was delicious. Later that night we hung out at our camp and watched the fireworks around the camp fire.

The little rocky beach
Nice and cooked

 On Monday we were planning on going to the beach again but it was not good weather so we packed up camp and planned on going home. On the way home we stopped in Centerville and ate lunch at Chilis with Declan's family. We drove the rest of the way home and unloaded the truck and unpacked and then I ended the day getting a pedicure with Declan's mom, aunt and sister while Declan rested his sunburned body at home on the couch.
