being lame: a mathematical representation

[note: this graph represents the number of interesting blog topics and not necessarily the excitingness of each one. So don't worry, I found getting married to be very exciting... I just don't have anything fun to write about after the fact. Also note: graph not to scale!]

So... to fill in for the lack of blogposts that represents that flatline on the right of the graph:

Joseph is teaching early morning seminary for Tucson High School, working 25 hours a week, and going to school full time. And he is the ward mission leader. I am working as a case manager at Cope and... that's it. I also, after 4 months of marriage, finally decided that it was time for me to start cooking dinners this week. [Joseph has been doing it up til now, despite his crazy schedule. I'm a nice wife, aren't I?] And I made some curtains for our bedroom. So that is our life.

I will try to blog more about our random happenings because who wants to hear about how everything is going good and has been for a really long time blah blah blah--booorrr-ring, right? So stay tuned. I'm gonna go make some mischief so I will have something to write about...

Fried brain, among other things

So I haven't blogged in awhile... and I even have things of interest in our lives to talk about. But I'll save that for when I have more brain power. For now, a little public service announcement for you:

Check your appliance cords to be sure they are not frayed/have wires exposed before you use them.

I was curling my hair on sunday before church and my curling iron exploded in my hand. Literally. Sparks shooting out, everything. I was absolutely terrified. It gave me a tiiiiiiiny little electric burn/exit wound on my thumb (looks more like a mole).

I knew it would happen some day, I should have been more prepared. That curling iron was the cheapest of the cheap and I've had it for about 7 years (the off button doesn't even work and, as you can see, it's held together with althletic tape) so this event was a long time coming. I guess that could be another PSA for you: quit being so cheap.

Anyways, I'm rambling. This is a blog about a very momentous occasion: my first electric burn. As an adult, that is. [As a kid I had a lot of trial and error experiences with metal objects and electric currents, but those are other stories for another day]

In conclusion, here's a random Tucson pic for you:

Just driving home from work. You know. No big deal.
