Officially A Barista!

Well, it is 1:33 a.m. here in good ole Denver - can't sleep. I started my new job tonight and I think I tasted too many kinds of coffee - that or I inhaled too many espresso grinds as I was cleaning the "It really does do everything AND make coffee!" machine. This glorious machine, which they call an espresso maker, makes creating those gormet drinks everyone is so addicted to a piece of cake. "Would you like one shot or two of espresso?" is the common question. "Soy, nonfat, whole, or 2% milk?" One also has their choice of flavored syrups in both regular and the no carb/no sugar variety. "Okay then, let me just press a button, swirl some milk, squirt some flavor and I think we are on our way!" My goodness! Has a cup of joe ever been so complicated? I think not!

Luckily, I happen to work for an amazing boss. Jeff is the most laid back and genuinely kind boss I think I have EVER worked under. He has really set up a great shop in Fluid and has something that I think will really take off. He and his wife have the most beautiful 4 month old daughter I think I have ever seen and her pictures plastered up all over near the register make me smile like you wouldn't believe and really make me miss my two younger brothers, Quinten and Walker.

It is hard to believe that Chris will be finishing up his first week already with Mark Young Construction. They have kept him in the office all week working on bids and learning the company. I know he is just itching to get out into the field where the sun is shining and the dirt is flying! Everyday he comes home with his snazzy new laptop and blueprints and it hits me just how much we have both grown up. When did we really become a Mr. and Mrs.? Whoa. Chris is so good at what he does and I truly admire his unwavering dedication and work ethic. He is an excellent role model for any young person - or seasoned person, for that matter - entering the job market.

I got my first official letter from Sky Vista inviting me to the inaugural all-staff get-together. I am really excited to meet the rest of the staff members and get to know those whom I will be working with. From the sounds of it, they can get pretty roudy - deathmatch ping-pong anyone? Should be fun. :) I was also informed of when I get to do my AP Biology training. I am sooooooo excited about that. Official nerdome here I come!!!

I really appreciate those of you who are commenting on the blog. It is such a nice way to hear from you and find out what is going on in your lives. Keep writing so we can keep in touch!!! :) For those of you who may not have gotten our new address here in Denver, here it is:

Chris and Meghan Daniel
1955 Pennsylvania St. #4128
Denver, CO 80203

You can also email us at or (I'm sure you can guess which address belongs to which person.) We don't have a new phone number yet, but will soon.

Well, Jack is zonked out with all 4 paws in the air, Chris hasn't moved in hours and I'm sure none of you are awake either. Time for me to give that sleeping thing a try.

Sweet dreams to you all!
