Crazy Coloradans

Ok, I really don't think Coloradans is a word but that is ok. As some of you may or may not know I have started delivering newspapers. Nice huh! haha, there was a girl from my ward who had done it and we were at a play group and she was telling us all about it. You make about $800 - $1000 a month...the only downfall is that it is at 2:30 in the morning! haha But it only takes me about 2 1/2 hours to do it, so not to shabby. There is another gal from the ward who decided to do it too so it has been a fun/interesting adventure! (I am sure it will lead to many more interesting posts) Anyway, on to my story.

I was driving to work the other morning and I was stopped at a stop light and I look over at the car next to me and there was this LARGE black man sitting in a big nice orange colored hummer and he is waving and smiling at me, so I wave back and turn back to watch the light. Then I hear a honk and the man is rolling his window down. At this point I am thinking maybe something is wrong with my car, so I roll my window down. He yells over to me, "Hey! I am so and so (I don't remember his name, it was to early in the morning to remember much of anything. We will name him Joe) and I played for the Denver Bronco's for two years, now I play for Kansas City." Oh ok, and he feels the need to tell me this why? So I reply, "cool, go Bronco's." Joe then goes on, "what's your phone number?" haha, this guy is crazy!!! I just rolled out of bed and threw some clothes on, no make-up, hair is a rats nest and he is asking me for my number?! Either he is drunk and desperate or I must be a lot better looking than I think I am! haha so I just replied that, "Sorry, I am HAPPILY married." Joe says again, "come on what is your number?" To which I replied, "I am VERY happily married with a kid." Joe then says, "ya ya so I am." At this point I am just disgusted and I just said, "I am NOT giving you my number!" He then gives me a glare and ran through the red light.

What a bunch of crazy Coloradans! This and the crazy foot man?! I am not going to lie though it did make me feel pretty good. :) I then went to work and told a few fellow co-workers. One I work with asked me if I was going to tell Jeff (her husband is VERY jealous and she definitely wouldn't have told him) of course I was going to tell Jeff! I just told her, "heck yes I am, he is just going to say I still have game!" When I got home and Jeff woke up I told him my story and that is exactly what he said! haha I love Jeff!

SO, with this crazy job it has made me so grateful for all the blessings in my life. Do I NEED this job, not necessarily. It is nice to stock up our savings just in case we don't get our house rented out again. But, I am so grateful for a wonderful husband who provides for me and our family, who is driven to succeed, and who isn't a scumbag who asks for s numbers! Honestly I think this job may be not only to pad our savings account a little more, but for me to remember how blessed we really are and how grateful I am for the gospel in my life and for the good people it lets me associate with where ever we are!!!

I love the story Kim and you are crazy for waking up so early in the morning, I could not ever do that. Good for you though, I think it would feel pretty good to contribute financially a little. So when are you guys coming to Utah for a visit, we miss you three.

I'm not surprised at all you got game! You're gorgeous! Jarom and I LOVE it when people do that, it cracks us up and makes us proud of each other for still havin' the stuff. (=

Remember when that happened to me, you, and Mom at DI? That was funny. Anyways, I am anxiously awaiting your dance pictures. . .

Look at you Kim, getting hit on by professional athletes! That story made me laugh, that is too funny. My husband has nothing to worry about, because no one would be hitting on me at 2:30 a.m. if I had just rolled out of bed...it's pretty scary! :) So sad about your cruise! Bummer deal. Guess you'll just have to plan a trip to Puerto Rico next time!

Hilarious! Its always nice to get a confidence boost, even if it is a little creepy at the same time. We've only met a few weirdos here so far.

PS - I finally read your blog! And no, I haven't started one yet. We're kind of boring. :)
