Welcome to my digital writing journal, or mydigitalclutter. What started as a family blog almost two years ago has morphed into my writing therapy. This is where I do a lot of free writing, mostly about my life with my family and the things that catch my interest. While nowhere even close to perfect, in each post I like to see how my writing is changing with time and practice. Most posts are left unedited for this reason, so if you don't mind, take the journey with me.

Now that the obsession has waned...

Yes, now that the obsession over reading the Twilight series has waned, I think that I need to get caught up on my housework, get ready for a job interview on Friday (Yippee!) and do a couple of digi layouts.  I spent a good portion of the weekend getting caught up on some of the things that I've been putting off while reading.  I still need to scrub the kids bathroom, but that may wait until later this evening.  I have to get the stomach to get all the toothpaste off the cabinets.  Of course no one did it.  I don't go in there very often, unless I'm helping the kids with something, so I didn't notice the blue smears all over the side of the sink cabinet until they were dry.  Yeah me.  I get to clean it up.  I can only think of Nigel, but I can't rule Abbie out either.  No one is 'fessing up, and they are both acting innocent.   Did someone else do it while sleepwalking in our house??? 

I am so excited with the happenings the week in our life!  Dan has a job interview with another department on campus at the U.  He has worked in the office of Information technology for almost 9 years now.  His latest assignment has been with ISO, the Information Security Office.  He has been a little disenchanted with it, as they were one of the last groups to be informed about the loss of information from the hospital a couple of months back.  Shouldn't they have been the first???  Anyway, a guy that he knows on campus, sent him a link to a job he had in his department and Dan applied.  The talk is that he is a shoe-in, but we'll wait and see.  I just want him to be happy and challenged at his job, not ornery about all the issues that they are facing.

Dan isn't the only one with an interview!  I have one too!!!!  Now, I did just get to Weber State last November, but my immediate supervisor left to take on the Associate Registrar position, leaving his position vacant in July.  After Dan and I talked about it, I decided to go ahead and apply, regardless of wether I get the position or not.  First and foremost I need to keep myself out there for other opportunities that come up.  If I get it, great!  It will be nice to keep doing what I'm doing, but have a broader scope. 

Well, I completed a couple of scrapbook pages today while it rained and hailed and was an absolutely fantastic morning for curling up on the sofa.  I am kind of behind on what I have wanted to accomplish.  So I've worked and got a couple of pages done from our annual excursion to the Box Elder County Fair & Rodeo.  We've gone almost every year that I can remember.  They have this hamburger stand that we eat at.  For some reason it is the best and I crave these hamburgers all year.  I'm not much of a meat eater, but for this, I'll make an exception!  I saw them bringing in bushels of tomatoes to put on them, straight from the farm.  No wonder they taste so good!  Yummy!  My mouth is watering just thinking about them!

I should also mention that I did my very first batch of canned tomatoes on Saturday!!  All my tomato plants have produced, but most all the tomatoes are split.  I just chunked them all up, put them in glass jars and processed them.  It totally reminds me of my mom and her canning all the years that I was growing up.  It was actually a lot of fun.  Now, if the wind and hail didn't ruin my peaches......

Hey good job on your tomatoes. Yes, most of mine are split too..and I am so mad. This guy at work brings in these perfect delicious tomatoes every day, and it makes me sad to think of my ugly tomatoes. The wind did a number on my plants!!! I hope for better luck next year! Cute scrappy pages - as always! Let me know if you get the job... Love ya
