Less than 3 weeks

Crunch time is coming in.

Angela caught a ride to Claremont a week and a half ago to attend my conference presentation and help me get all of my things back to Utah. I couldn't have done it without her. While I was attending most of the conference, Angela stayed in my apartment packing up all of my things and cleaning up--which I guess she owed me, since I have helped her move and clean on a couple other occasions. On Sunday, we packed up my car and a rental van, and set off on our ten hour return drive back to Utah.

This last week has been super busy, but productive. Even though I've got my seminar almost every day and Ang has school three days of the week, we have been able to get a lot of things accomplished. We finally fixed and registered my car, figured out how I am going to look at the wedding, renewed my drivers license, had a nice dinner with my fellow seminarians and their families, finally took our engagement photos, and a few other things.

The best part of the week though was a surprise birthday party Angela threw for me Thursday night. After looking for some of my wedding-day clothes, we went back to where Angela is staying and there were all of my closest friends to celebrate my big 3-0. Wow I'm old. I can't say it was a total surprise, as Ang apprently isn't the best at hiding this sort of thing, but I was surprised by how many of my close friends were there. It was great.

We should hopefully be getting some of our engagement photos back today so we can design our invitations and get them out soon. Getting them into the mail will be a huge relief.

It's great to be back with Angela permanently this time. I hated only getting to see her for a week or less at a time.

Today marks our negative one month wedding anniversary.

I'm still in California after having just finished my semester, and am trying to pack as well as write a paper which I'm presenting at a conference this weekend--all before Angela  arrives here tomorrow to help me get all of my things back to Utah on Sunday. With as busy as things have been for me these past couple weeks, they are only going to get busier when we get back. Angela is still in school three days a week and I begin a seminar at BYU on Tuesday which will occupy four days a week for me. Between all of that we still need to get our engagement photos and invitations sent out, find me a suit, register for gifts, get a marriage certificate and a dozen other things that we have yet to do--as well as a myriad of other things that I must do upon moving back to Utah.

Luckily, I've got a great special someone do to this all with. It's going to be great not having this 600 mile divde separating us anymore.
