A few things

Just a heads up: the next paragraph may be somewhat creepy. Don't read it if you are uncomfortable with funerals and such.

Over the weekend, Dustin's parents were telling us about a new thing in funerals and such. You know how everyoine is going green? Well apparently you can now have a green funeral. I have to say the idea appeals to me. I am probably a bit morbid in the fact that I think about such things all the time. I already know I want my funeral to feel like a celebration, and not a sad affair. For a long time when I was younger, I wanted to be cremated. And have my ashes scattered over the pacific somewhere. I have decided now that I would like to have a green funeral. They bury you in a biodegradable casket, and instead of being embalmed, you are frozen. Eventually you decompose like people used to long long ago. Sorry if that creeped you out. It doesn't bother me. Much.

You may ask why it came up at all in conversation. Well, sometimes such things just do. Dustin's Aunts father passed away last week, and so we went to his viewing last night. I don't like such things. Dustin wanted to go, and so I supported him. He does stuff that he doesn't want to do all the time, just for me. He's pretty awesome.

Anyway. My car is fixed, and runs much better. Dustin is so good with cars and such. The starter turned out to be bad. So we got a new starter on Saturday, and Dustin put it in on Saturday. It was such a beautiful day. Dustin opened the garage and I put a bunch of storage into it. I have quite a bit more room in my closets in the house now. The back room is almost empty. Sort of. Saturday was such a productive day. The sun was shining, the air wasn't too dirty, and it was almost warm. Miaya and Moose played outside while Dustin and I were working on our projects. We let Moose be outside with us, and she didn't bolt. We were pretty excited. I can take her to do her business without a leash, and that is progress. :D

We drove to Whistle Wok to "test my car" after fixing it. Not really. We just love Whistle Wok, so we went to American Fork just to get some good Chinese food. Yum. Miaya was being naughty. I wanted to take a pic of her shenanigans, and she hid from me. I laughed and laughed.

Miriam and Daniel are now in New Mexico. They left on Friday. I just got off the phone with her, and they'll get the internet next week. Awesome. I am so excited for them, and hope New Mexico is amazing. That's a place I've always wanted to go.

I went shopping with Melisa yesterday, and I found some GREAT jeans at Old Navy for $13.99. I love them so much. Oh, and for those of you in the area, Shade Clothing is having a sale this week somewhere in Pleasant Grove. The address in on the website, I think. I love their shirts, and so I am going. woo hoo. Okay.

The Superbowl was on Sunday. I really really wanted the Cardinal's to win. They didn't. But it was an awesome game, wasn't it? That fourth quarter had me on the edge of my seat. Great game. Miaya played with her cousin Paige. They had a blast.

I tell daniel the details of my funeral randomly all the time he hates it and says he will just die first to avoid it. I don't go to funerals anymore. They make me depressed for days. I go if its someone close but I really avoid them if I am pregnant. Piliote's funeral scared me for life
