Die, all happy people, die! (Emily)

Sometimes it feels like everyone's life is better than your own. I would like to tell myself that I have fallen captive to "the grass is always greener on the other side" mindset and my life isn't actually that bad but I know that I am right. No one has a life that stinks as much as mine! And don't try to argue with me because I will kick you in the shins. Moving on... when I look out the window, what do I see? Popcorn popping! Well, not exactly. But I do see beautiful weather and people outside enjoying it. I hear about everyone's amazing vacations, the rockin' time they had at the pool, or how their job makes them oh-so happy. I am not going to take it any longer! I talked to Sam about how I was feeling and we decided to set goals of things we would do here in Colorado before the summer is over. So here is what we came up with...

1. Rockies game
2. Elitch Gardens
3. skydiving
4. go to the pool at least 3 times a week
5. run 3 times a week
6. play catch once a week
7. read more books
8. plan our honeymoon
9. get a job for the Fall
10. go to the temple once a week
11. go golfing 3 more times
12. Garden of the Gods
13. try to wake up before noon
14. stop leaving clothes in the washer
15. go on walks late at night

Some of these things sound lame, but I am happy with small things too (clothes not smelling like mildew would be great). The end of this summer is going to be fan-freakin'-tastic!

So to the rest of you who feel like you have the stinkiest life ever, change it. Make a list. And then do everything on it. I love the feeling of accomplishment. Let me know how you do. If you have any ideas for Sam and me, let us know!
