Help I Can't Breathe

Smiley from millan.net
Salt Lake City has the worst air quality in the whole country.  Ugh!  I look out the 19th floor window at work and can see the thick air that we have to breathe everyday.  Oh, it looks gross.  I pray for wind or a good storm to come through and get rid of it.  We are supposed to have rain tomorrow night - lets just hope it is enough to clear the air.
We have found a place to live.Smiley from millan.net  I once again am so thankful my Heavenly Father is taking care of me.  We saw this great place on the classified ads and went to take a look at it.  It was excited about it and then we came home.  All I could think about was all my friends I would be leaving from my ward and how this house was so not Mar friendly.  I didn't feel good about it.  Ralph and I spent a lot of time on our knees trying to get answers.  You see, good houses to rent fly off the market as fast as they are listed.  We know we have a little time to play with, but we just weren't sure we were going to find a better deal.  We talked to the owner and met him on Sunday.  At the start of our visit he told  us he does a criminal background check and a credit check on each renter.  By the end of the visit he was offerring us a two year lease without either check.  We filled out the application and told him we wanted to think about it a little longer.  He gave us 24 hours.  Long story short.  We sorted through the real reasons for conern and decided to go with it.  Mar - I am sorry you were the only con to renting this home!  Will Gary still let you come see me?

We are putting on a skit at work for a 2 hour meeting we have this week.  Hopefully, it will break up a very mundane meeting.  We made it through skit practice today.  I dont' ususally like to embarrass myself, but this is going to be a whopper.  I will be so glad when this is over. 

I finished another book today - Mortal Friends by Jane Hitchcock.  Not a bad mystery.  I thought I had it completely figured out, but I was way off.  Language - not too bad.  The plot didn't stay real close the the original murder mystery, but it had a lot of social intrigue.  A "girl" mystery book.  I call in chic brain candy.  I would recommend it for anyone needing a break from real life.

Well, I am off to practice lines and then take Riley for a walk.  He lives for his walks.  Doesn't matter what time of day - he LOVES to go.  It is a great payoff for me too.  It gets rid of the gas and it helps work "things" out.

Ta Ta for now!
