This past weekend I was finally able to make it back to the Promised Land (Rupert) in almost 5 months! Friday evening I rolled into town just in time to attend my cousin Karee's
bridal shower. She is getting married on FRIDAY! craziness! Its still strange to me to grow up and see everyone doing grown up
things when I still think we should all be little kids.
Saturday morning I helped my dad with a few things around the farm,
as we drove out to the field to pick up his truck my car decided she was done.
After some detective work my dad figured it was the fuel pump.
I couldn't help but thank my lucky stars that 'Daphne' didn't decide
to pull that trick while I was driving to work on a busy
Utah road or out on I-15 the day before!
I had Rodeo plans for Saturday night, and oh how it made my heart smile! There is just something about hometown rodeos.. Running into friends you haven't seen for years, the sites and smells from childhood, and of course fair food!!! I have discovered recently that sugar makes my belly none too happy which may be a blessing so I didn't eat anything too sweet but I did enjoy some yummy dinner: chicken pita style! The Rodeo was all that I wanted it to be and when they announced cowboys from UT, I almost felt like my two worlds were colliding. I love my small town roots and my heart will always be there, however, I love, love being in the city and especially in Orem...It really has become my home- away from home.
I figured I would have to call in absent to work on Monday morning and spend Monday getting my car fixed. But to my surprise when I got home from the Rodeo there sat Daphne in the front yard all better! My wonderful brother and my cousin who is a mechanic sacrified their evening to fixing my car for me! Thanks guys.. Life Savers!
Monday morning though when I was getting ready to head back to Utah and to work my car wouldn't start...again!!!! This time it was the battery so my dad jumped my car, we drove into town to buy a new battery... Needless to say I felt like I had to buy a whole new car over the weekend, But I'm still counting my blessings that all the problems happened while I was home and could easily be taken care of.
