Okay sorry I have been such a slacker recently! It has been a little crazy around here with my job and the new car! At work I have been running around like a mad woman and then not getting off until 6pm. So that means that dinner gets put on the back burner and poor hubby has to help me think of something quick and healthy, hah good luck! But he does a good job! I actually haven't felt like eating much recently though, the metformin the doctor has me on hasn't been doing much except make me feel pretty sick. I am think I need to call him and tell him that it has stopped working like it is supposed to, oh joy! So maybe he will up the dosage, eeek, or just change the medicine, which may be a good thing. Sorry if I am being really whiney today I just am feeling kinda down. Missing home, my family and the warmth. Missing my thin body, hating the fact that being insulin resistant makes you think about everything you take into your body.
I guess I need to look on the bright side though! I am healthy, my family is healthy, we all have strong testimonies of the gospel, and we will be welcoming a wonderful new little nephew here in a couple days!!! Yay! The tall guy and I found a cute little onesie, jumper type thing that will be so adorable that we need to send to him. I can't wait to see the picture of the cute little guy, I just wish I could be there to see him. It is amazing how much you appreciate your family when you are so far away from them. I am sorry for all the Idahoans that love this potato filled land, but I cannot stand it and I am ready to be done with it. The tall guy is going to Seattle in a couple weeks for an internship expedition for a couple days to see what internship opportunities may be out there when he is finished and I will be here by myself. It is actually a little scary because it will be the first time since we have been married that he will be gone for about a week. I will be okay though:o) I have work to keep me busy. So guys if you hear from me alot that week that is why, hehe! I won't have anyone else to talk to! Anyways I will stop rambling and complaining to you! I love you all!

I feel your pain....its tough being so far away from everyone, but soon it will be over and at least we can all look forward to that. I'm also not so sure what everyone sees here in Virginia, its pretty to visit, but I just wouldn't want to call it home indefinitely.

As soon as we have pictures we will send them out so everyone can see the new addition to our family. Which should be easy since mom will be here and she is way good at capturing everything on film!

We love you and hope the tall guy finds some good job opportunities. Its too bad that while he is in Seattle you couldn't come here.

I really wish that I could go out while he is in Seattle that would be so much fun! But alas someone needs to work so we can pay the bills! hehe :o)

When My guy left to go trucking for the first time wehad only been married for weeks and I thought i would die!! I have never been good at sleeping away from home and I was SCARED every single night. But, when I made it thorough the "trauma"(hehe) I felt so much stronger. I was amazed that I kept my cool (most of the time) and was in the end greatfull for the experience.

Oh bean, i do miss ya. You know you need to make potato salad out of all those potatoes! (you know the lemonade theory?)

I love your new colors! We will be close to you soon in May. Then we'll give real hugs all around. Call your doctor and tell him you want to quit practicing medicne and it's time to get serious with it.

Call me.

Dear sweet one!
Life happens one day after the next. I don't really know the answer. So I'm not going to pretend to say that I do. I meet all of these elderly folk in my work. Most of them raised their kids, sent them off to college or out into the world to make their own families. So families are all spread out across the country. It's a heart breaker. So here's the advise, for what it's worth. Cherish every moment. And there are great moments between the best ones. Sure the best are when we are all together. Sometimes we fight, sometimes we love. But they are the best. But inbetween those great moments are some very very good ones, they're just harder to see because we're too busy trying to remember the great ones! Regardless of distance - thousands of miles, regardless of hardship - the cold, the loneliness, the money diet, etc., we still have a connection. A connection that IS great - that is worth all of the difficult times. This will never be torn apart. In fact it grows stronger. With every new husband/son in law (new sons!), with every new child that comes into our circle, we grow stronger and even more connected. Our hands hold each other, we embrace each other over the distance. Some day those distances will be between stars. In even more difficult situations. Will be ready to remember the connection? Will be able to hold on to the circle? We will.

Love you always - across the divide,
Your dad

Oh the joys of met. BLECH! Do you have PCOS-- it's my first thought when I read this. :) All I can say about met is that I hate it as well. :)

I absolutely love the colors. Honestly this is one of my very favorite that I have ever seen.

Secondly, I wanted to say, I can't find the darn cherry kitkats! HOW RUDE. *sniff*.

I've spent most of my married life, alone. My husband travels for work, and is gone for long periods of time. Well, not so much anymore, but, for years and years in the beginning.

Those first few times he was gone, I was kind of left looking around, thinking... "NOW WHAT?"

It's nice that you have work to keep you company.

We would of course, L-O-V-E, to hear more from you. Read a book, bring in take out, relax in the tub.

It will be fun.

It's great to visit here.
