Election Helps

With the Presidential election just a few days away, I'm still a little on the fence about which candidate I should choose. Both McCain and Obama have good ideas on how to fix problems and I've always thought of myself as more of an independent than a Republican or Democrat. I just want whoever will do the best job to be elected.

To help me decide who will do the best job, i found a really great comparison of the candidates policies, their voting records and whether or not analysts think their plans will work or not. I really like how i got the whole picture about each topic/plan and what the ramifications of each would be. If you have some time, take a look and decide for yourself at

Whatever you do, make sure you get out and vote on November 4th!

Remember too that there are more choices than just the two big candidates (I think there might be 8 or so). Most everyone has a favorite when thinking of McCain or Obama, and it's normal to think that one you like the least must be crazy for espousing the positions that he does.
This poses a problem when considering any other candidates. Going on the assumption that the majority of America is sane, and that the majority of America is going to vote for either McCain or Obama, and that the majority of America thinks the other half of that duo is crazy (making them both crazy), then I think I can assume that any other candidates must be certifiably insane. Since I don't feel like voting for crazy or insane, here are my top choices for a write-in candidate:


Whoever this is, he's got the right attitude.
2. SUPERMAN Wouldn't that be awsome?
3. The number 53. It's prime.

YAY for Chris, the smartest man alive!!!

This is Chris, and that nasty picture is now gone.
It took 6 tries before I passed that stupid test btw.

As some of you may know, Chris has been working towards obtaining his certification as an Environmental Health Scientist so he could do food inspections, hazmat stuff, air quality oversight, swimming pools, onsite wastewater, meth houses inspection & containment and a whole lotta other stuff. We really needed him to pass this test so he could stay with the Health Department in Logan, as things with mosquito abatement are coming to an end. However, this certification is recognized nationally as well, so we would be able to move and he could stay in the same career.

Well today we got a call from one of Chris' bosses that an envelope from NEHA had come to the office and we were super nervous to check it out. We just got back and the news. . . is. . . AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!

Chris passed the test and our future is looking bright - hooray! He only needs to pass the test on Utah codes and laws, but compared to what he has just gone through, it is supposed to be a walk in the park.

I am sure that Heavenly Father answered our prayers and responded to our failthfulness. He knows the struggles we face and will stretch us only as far as we can go to grow and then comes the reward for our efforts. We are so thankful and blessed.

I am employed!

Hooray for me, I have a new job. Well actually it's the same job that I had in college taking in bound calls for an automotive accessory company. It's not super exciting or glamorous but it's full time and i get the weekends off, so i think it'll be ok.

I had training this week and I also had the most horrible flu in recorded history. I won't give you all the lovely details, but i will say that Chris took very good care of me thorugh the chills and the fever and even the yucky things. He is soooo good to me and now I get to take care of him becasue he has a cold :) Good thing it's conference weekend so we can recuperate together.
