Julia: “Mary Ann, we’re trying to convince Eduardo that dating is fun.”

Mary Ann: “Oh, dating is fun. I’m not sure if you’d want to date these two, but dating is fun. These two are like roller coasters! And one of Shirley’s riders is gonna get de-railed. And Julia’s rider has had to get on and off fifteen times. Shirley’s ride is longer, but you fly off at the end.”

Latest News and Forthcoming Events!

Hello to family and friends!
First, I'd like to announce *officially* my first office job! I start on Monday as the accounting clerk for TLW Construction. I am very excited for this position and opportunity, but also pretty scared...although the controller above me and the rest of the office seem really laid back, accepting, and helpful. Hopefully I'll be able to pick everything up and take off with it running. Also, just as an intersting note, after I left the office for the first time, having just been extended the offer for the position from the controller, I received a call on my cell phone from Mr. Ted L. Williams (TLW) asking if I have an Uncle and Aunt named Richard and Linda Mackey. Apparently my new boss is my dad's brother's brother-in-law, or, my aunt's sister's husband. Not sure yet if that's a good or bad thing.
An extra plus about my new position is that I can earn 6 credits of my required business electives for ASU just because I work under a CPA. Is that not amazing? That means if I took my remaining four classes this fall semester I could graduate in December!....but, I'm just going to split it up. That would be too much for me at once.

Further announcements from the life of Shirley: it may be very likely that I will be moving into a house in Tempe come August, renting it with four other girls. This is very exciting for me, and am sure for Joe and Mary as well. One thing about moving into a house, though, is that you've got to have stuff to move in with. So, as my loved ones and dear appreciated friends, I ask that you be on the lookout for furniture and the likes that people might be trying to get rid of or will be selling within the next little bit. Please let me know if you know of anything or if anything comes up, and if you've got any trusted leads please follow them. I would be oh so incredibly grateful!

Have an enjoyable and relaxing rest of your weekend and a beautiful Sabbath. I love you all.

Love,
Shirley Elizabeth

You better believe that I rock. I'm pretty much pro now on a mountain bike. Give me any mountain or hill and I'll totally take it blindfolded on a unicycle.

I'm totally going on a mountain biking adventure today. Way super excited. Hope I don't die so I can make it to the family date night tomorrow.

It's coming....



So, geesh. I leave in TWO DAYS for EFY and am pretty terrified and pretty excited and terribly unprepared. But let's not think about that right now.


So update? Well, I'm currently dating Mike and we have tons of fun. Wanna know a secret? (*he's in love with and wants to marry me*)(I wouldn't think it a bad idea were there not a Tyson) Aside from that, Tyson comes home in THREE MONTHS. Mike knows. He's really hoping. Honestly, I'm really lost, but still committed to Tyson. Mike has kinda become something I never expected to come across, but as Tyson says, "I am not going to give up. I think I have been the most persistent of all. 14 weeks... 3 fast sundays... I do love you."
.
Also, I have started swimming! I started with my friend last week and yesterday swam an entire mile (which, for those of you who don't know, is 36 laps, and one lap is two lengths of the pool)! I would like to get better, but since I have a really hard time breathing it's going to take some time...but I'm okay with that.

So for those family that want to see pictures, I post pretty much everything on Facebook. Here's a link to the album of pics from a zoo trip Mike and I took Carter on:

Enjoy! I will update again, I promise. ...may be after EFY though (I'm doing three weeks)
