So my recent trip to DI has been a great one!
Let me start with what has been happening recently …
I've been wanting a cat. We can't have a cat. So I've been feeding the strays. Oops :P. There are four of them and pictures are to come.
Ok ok ok, so let me defend myself. Cats ARE the pets #1 as a transmitter for disease and parasites. ESPECIALLY feral cats. You want to know why? Their DIET! They eat rats and mice … need I say more? So lately, the tenants of Mainstreet station have been complaining about the feral cats. They are concerned about them pooping in the playground (Legitimate concern). BUT nobody is willing to do anything about it! So I've been feeding them, hopefully to reduce their parasite load. Then once they become friendly, and feel comfortable around humans, I'll try to find them good homes that will take them in and hopefully spend some money giving them shots and spayed/neutered. If we don't do anything about them, they'll just reproduce and end up in the pound and stay in a little box until they are gassed. So … in my efforts to help these cats get used to me, I've made them a little bed for the winter.
This is what my DI trip was for. I got a THICK wool blanket (about the size of a saddle blanket) and folded it in 4ths. Under that, I put a thin fleece blanket folded in 6ths. All for 6 dollars! I actually tilted a flat cart-like thing we have on our porch over the bed so they have some wind protection. =) The little Siamese kitten has been sleeping there since I put it in! Too cute.
Now here comes the best part of my trip!
MOVIES!!! Each for $2!!!!
Pretty much the most AWESOME purchase!!
Oh yeah, and I got a neck pillow (You know, the little U shaped pillows for travel?!) Memory foam …. Wait for it …. $3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
$20 total. MAN I love DI!

This was Aaron's "PCAT Love". I had one of these by the bed every morning leading up to the PCAT. We find out the results in a month! On the last day, I gave him a massage. I was on my knees for about an hour and ended up twisting my knee and messing up my ligaments .... oops. But Aaron's tesion dissappeared.
When he came home, this was on the door with a SKOR bar. =) He enjoyed that.
She told me the other day that Riley (the little boy) asked for "Aaron" (Which means Brittany) and that he wanted to play "The umbrella game." It's where we hide under the umbrella and sing "I like to look for rainbows, whenever there is rain" and squirt the umbrella with water and watch it drip down.

This was today's gift. I put the bear right next to his alarm clock (his phone).
He gave a little giggle, put his phone on snooze and went RIGHT back to sleep. Ha ha

I love our room and I actually open the blinds now because I love it so much!
This is the view to the North
Check out that PLUME! This was the only "edge" we could see. It was as far North, East, and West we could see.

Here is our entire collection of books. Those sad excuses for bags are from when I separated all of Aaron's coins by book and put them in little makeshift paper bags.
Separating the quarters ...
With our leftover quarters, we went and got icecream!!!
Here is our progress! We did all this in about 2 hours! It was fun though.

First off, we signed our project 52 contract. Go here to see the contract. We added our own little rules too: No phones or computers unless needed for the date and no more than $20 a month. Our first date was a game night with a friend from back home that I haven't seen in a while. We set her up with one of Aaron's old roommates. It was really fun. We even got creative and made our own version of Uno! We made up some new cards using the blank cards in our decks.
The pirates let you switch hands with another player of your choice. The old maid is just that, the old maid. It's unplayable, so If you get stuck with it, you can never play it and lose. But you can swich hands using the pirate, and with our blood uno rules =). We had lots of fun.
We'll keep you updated on our other project 52 dates! I'm so excited to regularly date my husband!

So here's our update. Thursday morning, our car didn't start. We assumed it was the battery (seeing as how we only drive it to campus and back, poor car) so we got our neighbor to jump it for us. While the engine was running, he heard a subtle clanking. It was our timing chain. Uh oh. He recommended a great auto shop, they've been great. I've had so many problems with mechanics here in Rexburg. We're so grateful to live so close to a trustworthy man that knows his cars. We're also grateful we got me a bike last fall. It's come in handy. We're biking everywhere now. It's a great workout! It's also been a great humility work out. It's hard for us to ask for help, so this is good for us to practice! I just hope we'll be able to help them when they need it.
On a side note, school is going great for us. Aaron's got some tough classes, but he is an O-chem lab assistant and he loves it! He was so excited! This will be so good for him, it'll give him a chance to review his O-chem for his PCAT (and get paid for it). I only have 12 credits this semester. The tests are a little hard, but that's about the extent of my schooling. I have about 7 required camping trips this semester. I know, me camping?!?! But I go! I'm still working it all out though. We bought a foam pad and Aaron had taught me to set up his tent. I've almost mastered his mummy bag … both times it's unzipped all the way (and the zipper unhooked) in the middle of the night due to the fact that I can't zip it all the way up :P I thought I broke it. Oh, and I forgot to mention that it's too small for me. Ha ha. We'll have to get a sleeping bag for me so that Aaron and I can camp together in Yellowstone this semester!
More is to come, but this is our crazy life so far!
We love you guys!
