A local pickup truck to borrow for a couple of hours...

Do you have a truck we can borrow? We have a loveseat we want to get (it's FREEE!!!!!!) but the owners can't move it for us, and all we have is a little bitty Honda Civic....

Please let me know!
Hugs and Kisses!!


PS. A minivan with removable bench seats might work too...

Taylor the Latte Boy

One of my favorite Singers/Actresses Kristen Chenoweth, singing one of my favorite songs. I recently rediscovered it, and it makes me smile every time that I listen to it. Hope you enjoy it too!

Here are the lyrics too, in case you want them... ^_^

There's a boy who works at Starbucks
Who is very inspirational.
He is very inspirational because of many things.

I come in at 8:11, and he smiles and says, "How are you?"
When he smiles and says, "How are you?"
I could swear my heart grows wings!

So today at 8:11
I decided I should meet him
I decided I should meet him
In a proper formal way.

So today at 8:11 when he smiled and said "How are you?"
I said "Fine, and my name’s Kristin"
And he softly answered, "Hey."
And I said "My name is Kristen, and thank you for the extra foam…"

And he said his name was Taylor,
Which provides the inspiration for this poem:

Taylor the latte boy,
Bring me java, bring me joy!
Oh Taylor the latte boy,
I love him, I love him, I love him…

So I’d like to get my nerve up
To recite my poem musical.
He would like the fact it’s musical
Because he plays guitar.
So today at 8:11, Taylor told me he was playing
In a band down in the village in the basement of a bar.

And he smoothly flipped the lever to prepare my double latte,
But for me he made it triple! And he didn’t think I knew
But I saw him flip the lever, and for me he made it triple,
And I knew that triple latte meant that Taylor loved me too!
I said, "What time are you playing? And thank you for the extra skim…"
He said, "Keep the $3.55," because this triple latte was on him.

Taylor the latte boy,
Bring me java, bring me joy!
Oh Taylor the latte boy,
I love him, I love him, I love him…

I used to be the kind of girl who'd run when love rushed toward her.
But finally a voice whispered "Love can be yours, if you step up to the counter, and order."

Taylor, the latte boy
Bring me java, bring me joy
Oh Taylor the latte boy
I love him, I love him, I love him.

So many years my heart has waited,
Who’d have thought that love could be so caffeinated?
Taylor, the latte boy,
I love him, I love him, I love him.
I love him, I love him, I love him.

Why was I totally stupid and didn't take a shower as soon as I got home from hiking in Poison-Oak-infested Montana de Oro?

Why did I brush aside the knowledge that I am massively allergic to Poison Oak and should not touch anything until I had showered off and thrown my clothes in the laundry?

Why did I choose to sit on the couch for 45 minutes and eat and watch TV before cleaning up?

Why did I then sit on that couch after my shower probably transferring all the nasty oils back onto my body?

Why didn't I think of all of this before climbing into bed last night and probably transferring those nasty oils into my bed and all over me again?!?!?!?!?!

Why did I take a nap on said potentially infested couch?

Why did I not realize all of this until just a while ago when my arm started itching?

Which then of course set off itching on other places on my body, which gets me even more paranoid that I am covered in the nastiness....

Off to do laundry and hopefully get rid of the rest of it....

PS. I am still itchy...

Gala, Fuji, Red Delicious, Granny Smith....

...notice a trend?

We (and by we I mean Kyle) are going to be working with them. Well, One in particular.

Yup, that one.

We just accepted a job offer from them and after Kyle graduates in June we will be moving up to Cupertino so that he can begin working for Apple Inc.

It is a little bit of a bittersweet thing for us.

We have come to love San Luis Obispo county dearly, our relationship has grown here, we have had our first years of married life here, and we have gained some sweet friends.

But it also feels like we are finally "growing up" by moving, leaving behind the view of us that we are young college students, but rather we are a young couple just starting out in a career and life.

It will also be nice to be back in the Bay Area where we both grew up, me in Los Gatos and Kyle in Morgan Hill, and where our families both still live.

It will be nice to have old friends nearby again and to have family nearby when we start a family.

I will treasure these last few months we have here though, and it is nice to know that it will only be a 3 hour drive away!!!
