We got to spend a night with Sean's grandparents and then a day and a half at Sean's home. That was a nice break from driving. And we did some fun things, of which I'll probably put on pictures later.
We arrived on Friday, after some annoying traffic made us a lot later than we expected. My brother helped us unload, but it was still beastly getting everything to the apartment, mostly because of the heat. People weren't kidding when they said it's hot here. Someone told me it's been record-breaking a few of these days. What perfect timing for us to arrive! I pretty sure I've been dehydrated for five days.
We're unpacking slowly, which is kinda nice, except I can't find things half the time. We've been learning the area a bit, though Sean's a little quicker than I. But I'm proud to say that today I deftly navigated (with the help of the GPS) around Houston to buy some of Sean's birthday presents. Which are now wrapped in newspaper and masking tape, both leftovers from packed boxes. Whatcha gonna do when you don't know where the tape or scissors or wrapping paper are?
A couple of weeks ago, a doctor working for Baylor asked me to come for an interview, so that's what I did this morning. And guess what- he offered me the job! And after talking with Sean, I accepted. Yay, I have a job! I'll be doing EEGs on mice to help figure out epilepsy. Holy handle, I can't tell you what a blessing it was to get this job so quickly, it's such a financial relief. And it seems like a fun place to work.
Alright, that's enough of the words, let's do some pictures. Pictures that are wholy unrelated to my above thoughts. The last weekend we were in Provo, Sean and I explored Provo's Fourth of July celebrations with Kyle and his girlfriend (hee hee!). For your viewing pleasure:
Outside of the little colonial area were a bunch of flags.
We went into the historic printing press and were really impressed with how much work it took to print... anything!
Look at all those individual letters that had to be put all together just to make a page. Just think of it!
