this post is so overdue that i myself am having a hard time remembering what we did this month? pictures have jogged my memory, and a full calendar of work schedules promptly reminded me.
the biggest thing happening in october was payton’s mission farewell. he is now in yakima, washington doing his mission thing. before he left i took some mission pics of him, which both he and tyler made fun of, but i like them. also, my mom kept all the printed copies on her kitchen table as a shrine to my brother, so it definitely was not done in vain.
also, diana came to visit me from florida! it was so great to be a tour guide of sorts in salt lake, although it gives me anxiety. i was just happy she came when temps were still in the 50s and you could see the mountains sans inversion. we got in many fall activities while eating nothing fun because she was on whole30.
wow there’s a lot of leaves in this post.
and then it was halloween! diana went to halloween crossfit with me, and our “pocahontas and john smith” costume quickly morphed into something more of a farmer and an indian. whoops. for a family party i dressed up as a psychic only to enter the party to find no one but myself and the tiny children had dressed up… and then for real halloween i stole hospital gowns from work and we went as psych patients to our trunk or treat. it was all very entertaining.
the rest of the month was just general real life. tyler and i tried to spend a little time together, even if that just meant a trip to costco, between work days and nights. we narrowed in on our search for home purchase, we both got new cars and sold our old ones, and i studied feverishly for the GRE. and i baked, allegedly.
and there were a couple good views, on the way to work and while giving flu shots, and visits with good friends
and onward to november.
