So last night I went on a late night walk with Andrew and we went on a nature path that ended up being a five mile walk. I wasn't originally planning on it being that long, but hey I was trying to be spontanious. So anyway, I was in my flipflops walking and it was dusk. It was just light enough to see the path, but dark enough to not be able to see any details. All of a sudden I was looking down and almost walked right into a snake! I stopped Andrew before he did too, and we just stood there looking at it. It was probably five to six feet long. If anyone knows me, then they know I am more terrified of snakes than anything else. Then it coiled up and started hissing at us. I have not been that scared in a long time. Immediately after, I took off as fast as I could and about 300 yards later I slowed down to see if Andrew was behind me. A few seconds later, he caught up to me. He told me that after I took off, the snake's tail started rattling and was getting ready to strike at him! We almost got bitten by a rattle snake!!! I was terrified the whole rest of the walk home (we still had 2.5 miles to go). I was so scared that another snake was going to jump out and bite my toes off. It also didn't help that after that, it got completely dark and we couldn't see hardly anything. It also didn't help that we saw like five more snakes squished on the side of the road. I couldn't stop thinking that we could have died. We were so lucky that all was okay. So, moral of the story...don't go on late night walks in the middle of nowhere in Idaho, because you might run into a rattle snake. FYI-I guess snakes like to go onto blacktop when it cools down at night. Scary huh?!!!
On Saturday I had my five year class reunion. It was nice to see some of my old classmates again and find out what they have been up to. I do wish there would have been a better turn out though. There were probably only forty people (including spouses) if that. It really was nice though. I can't believe how many people have kids already. I totally felt like the minority. Thanks to Julie Barnard for planning everything.
So I don't really have anything to blog about, but I just thought I would tell what I have been up to the last week. Um, well I have been working and not doing a whole lot else. Anyways, hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the summer.
For our fourth I had to work in the afternoon, but then we went to my dad's house for a family bbq and later went to the fireworks with them. The fireworks are always great and I am so thankful for such a wonderful, beautiful country to live in. Thank you forefathers for your persistance in demanding freedom. Oh-I hope everyone had a great holiday!!!
Andrew and I have been married since August 2007 and I can't believe how fast time has gone by. We have been richly rewarded with so many blessings. We are so thankful to be members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I am finally done with school now and we are both working. I am now a dental hygienist. YAY! I love my husband with all my heart and am so glad to have a husband who is also my best friend!
