Sandcastles

A week or so ago Chad, Will, and I went to the beach with the intent to build a sandcastle. I ended up talking to my mom on the phone the whole time and Chad and Will eventually gave up as the water came closer and closer to their sandcastle. They claimed they quit because the water was ruining it, but I think it was most likely because they were getting drenched!

We plan on buying some tools to help us so that the next time we build a sandcastle we'll be pro! (The shovel in the picture we stole (with permission I might add) from a little boy!)

Weechee = Weird

While packing for our move to California Chad and I got bored and started playing with Weechee. The result: she ended up chasing a laser for almost an hour. Here is just a quick video of her playing with the laser.

Pay attention to how she goes at the laser with her front paws. :)

Also, last night Chad went to TacoBell and got a bunch of tacos and burritos. We had one taco leftover and neither of us wanted to eat it. We ended up opening up the taco and letting Weechee have at it. No joke, she seriously ate the entire thing! (Everything but the taco shell.) Here is proof:

Life Thus Far

So Chad and I are about a week into our new jobs. I am the Office Manager for the LA area and I am in charge of auditing, scanning, and dealing with paperwork for corporate, bugging sales reps and techs to get their job done, and pretty much everything else that goes along with working in an office. The first few days were really busy. (The office wasn't set up and I had to get the fax, internet, and phone working and I know NOTHING about technology. It was a blast.) However, things have settled down and now I am in the office from about 8:30-1:30/2ish most days. Some days I even get out earlier than that! Hoowah!

Chad is a sales rep and has made 3 sales so far. Not bad for being out a week. The average first-year sales rep only gets 5 sales his first month. So to have 3 in a week is great! We're hoping to eventually get 2-3 sales a day later on. :) He works 11:30-8:30/9ish Monday-Friday and 9-5 on Saturday; essentially our schedules do not match up very well. The only time we have to really go out and play/see the area is on Saturday night. Last Sunday morning Chad and I went for a walk on Venice Beach. It isn't the nicest beach in the area, but when you haven't seen a beach in years anything is good! Here are some pictures from our adventure:
