Our New HOME

It's official we now live in Salmon, Idaho! Sterling got the job at the hospital and he's loving his job. He loves the people he works with and he was so excited to tell me yesterday that he started 2 IV's. We found a house to rent. It has 2 bedrooms...full bath....garage and yard! Oh we also have a deck and porch. The house needs some work. The backyard has weeds a mile high. The inside smelled like smoke/dirty...ster rented a carpet cleaner and that really helped with the smell. We want to do some painting to add some life and color to the house. Other than those things its great. We have so much room to spread out! We're not sure how we fit into our first little apartment. This house is atleast 2 times bigger! 

I also found a job in town. I'm working at the best fine dinning restaurant Salmon has to offer! I got the job like 3 days after we moved here. They just called and asked if i still wanted the job and then asked me to work that night. I'm still on the market for a day job but its so hard here to find a job. I thought Rexburg was hard....its like ten times harder here. In Rexburg you couldn't get your feet into any of the businesses but here in Salmon there are no businesses. There's nothing here but the river and some government jobs. Its a tough world and i pray that i will find something or else i will go crazy! I have a few leads so i hope one of them will work out!

Life is good though. We have a great ward. They are all so friendly and love us because we are young! Not to many young couples move here. I just can't image moving and not having the church to help you adjust to your new home. Just going to church each week has helped me so much in this town. Just knowing that i have people who believe what i believe, who have the same morals and who know life's purpose. It really helps. The Church is just so wonderful. My puppy has also helped me alot! Who knew a dog could keep you company. I love my dog and really when Ster is gone all day and i'm stuck at home Jackson makes me not lonely. Its weird! I never thought a dog could do that,but really he does. I love my pup! We are so happy to finally have a job and a home! Life is good!

How exciting! Moving is always a scary thing, and it really does help a lot to move into a welcoming ward. I'm glad you guys are enjoying everything so far!
