New hair cut and new computer

Okay, I know I mentioned my new hair cut a few weeks ago, but I just finally took some pictures. I like it alot, but this isn't the greatest picture.

Well, we finally got our new computer. It has the Vista operating system and that will take some getting used to, but it's not too bad. Here's a picture of the computer.

Notice the separate keypad on the right hand side. That's nice. It's a 17" screen. Well, I'm off to a Stampin' Up party. I'll write more later.

Okay. Why is it raining outside? We've had nothing but chilly temperatures and light snow for the past 1 1/2 weeks and now all of a sudden it's raining. It started last night and kept on right through the night. It's still raining and 38 degrees. Is this a warming trend you ask? I highly doubt it. It's Bethel and warming trends really don't happen here. I'm sure it will be chilly and snowing by the weekend again. Although it will be really nice if it didn't.

On another note, my computer was in Anchorage yesterday, so hopefully it makes the cargo plane today and I'll have it tomorrow! It's wishful thinking but it could happen. Alrighty then. I'm going to get to work and I'll keep you all updated as things happen!

Computer and Pictures

Well, I added a few pictures to my Epson Photo Album. Follow the link on the right hand side. I also received an email from Dell this morning. Our computer was shipped yesterday (2nd Day air), so hopefully we will receive it by the end of the week. Yes, even though it was shipped 2nd day (and we paid 2nd day air prices!), we won't receive it till the end of the week. There's even the possibility of it not arriving until early next week, but I don't want to jinx it.

What does all of this mean? It mean that I won't have to take my slow work computer home to try to do anything anymore! Yeah.

Okay, I need to get back to work. Later~

PS. If any of you have pictures you want to email me send them to

The Promised wedding Pictures

Okay here's a few of the wedding pictures that I promised I would post. These are some of the ones that Eric's mom and sister took. I have the "professional" ones back from my sister, but until we get our new laptop I don't think I will be able to post any of those. The laptop I'm currently using is an older one that I use at work and it can be pretty slow. Enough blabber, here's a few for you to look at.

This has actually has to be one of my favorite pictures.

Okay, hopefully that satisfies some of you and I'll post more later.

So, what do you want to know?

Today was a busy day. I went to the local Saturday market to check out the crafts of the native. They have some beautiful crafts, but I still have a hard time paying the prices for some of the things. They have some beautiful grass weaved baskets and mukluks (skin/fur boots). After a little time there, I got together with another girl here who does some scrapbooking and we spent the afternoon making a few pages. Tonight I spent the evening at a going away party for the Refuge manager where Eric works. We had a wonderful potluck (Bethel is good for those!) and then there was a roast of the manager. That was well worth the trip to the party. Now I'm home watching some TV and updating my blog.

As far as the weather goes I don't think we've gotten above 30 in the past week. We've had snow on the ground since then also. This is what we woke up to last Saturday. This is the view from our dining room window looking down on our driveway.
I just realized that I had the following picture on the camera from Jimmie Joe's (Eric's dad) b-day party. This is the beaver hat (I would put down the Yup'ik name but I'm not sure how to spell it) that we er, I made for him.
Well, I'm going to sign off for the night, but I promise I'll post some wedding pictures tomorrow.

Waking Up to Snow

Well, this morning Eric and I woke up to snow. Not just a sprinkling of snow, snow that covers the ground and doesn't go away. Our high today is only 28. Hopefully we will get a little warm-up. I would add a picture but I don't want to be adding any more software to my work laptop if I don't need to. I took a few and hopefully I can post them later. I'm hoping our new laptop will be here in the next couple of weeks. Well, I better go. Later ~ Amy

Snow Anyone?

Well, we had our first official snow fall on Friday. Nothing stuck around but it's official, winter is just around the corner. As far as work goes, I am still waiting for the Department of Education to get their butt in gear and get our grant award to us. We can't do anything with the budget until we get the award to know how much they are giving us. So I'm pretty much working for free right now. Our business office says they will be able to back pay me, but I hope I don't have to wait too long for it.

Eric is doing good at work also. He flies out next Saturday for 3 weeks of training in West Virginia. The Fish and Wildlife Service has a huge training center out their and requires new employees to attend training out there. I think he's going out today with one of the guys from work to look for something. Maybe bear and caribou?

On a side note, I cut my hair. Not super short, but they did take about 3-4 inches which is alot for me. I'll try to get a picture posted soon. Well, I'll write more later. ~Amy

Well, I've been Mrs. Eric Wald for officially 2 1/2 weeks. It doesn't seem that different yet, but maybe that's because I'm still signing alot of things with Gronke still. I'm waiting for the Official copies of the marriage license arrive before I can change alot of the paperwork. Here's a collage that my photographer/sister put together.
Well, I better get going. I'm using my work computer to do this because my laptop crashed on me. Eric and I are looking at getting a new one but for the time being posting may be limited.
