Time of the Year!

This is my favorite time of the year. For many reasons of course...but view the pictures below to see why.
Broc and I started dating this time two years ago. This has been the best two years of my life. The happiest two years of my life. The beginning of our relationship was fast. Heck. Our whole relationship was fast, but I wouldn't have it any other way. I love you Broc Jenkins!

Not enough time.

Can I please just take a moment to vent.
9-5 jobs...are the worse.
It is too hard to find time to go to school! If I could, I would find a new job..but I don't want to take that risk.
Why can't Dixie State have more online classes.
Being a young adult working,married,student..isn't all it is cracked up to be.
If it is cracked up to be anything...

Weekend Fun.

Well, I can't believe the weekend is over. The week seems to go by so slow and the weekend is too fast. This weekend was pretty good. Broc took off on Friday to go on a campout with the Scouts. I took that 24 hours to CLEAN! It seems that when Broc is home I can never clean. On Saturday I had a meeting at work and came home to relax. A few hours later Broc came home! After getting cleaned up we just went to run some errands. April, a good friend from college...(best roommate ever) was in town and came by.
After wards we went out with some of my old work friends and their hubbys. It was really fun to go on a group date. We went to Red Robin at 7:30 and ended up staying until 10:30 or so just chatting. Saturday was also Broc's Dads birthday.
Over all, it was a good weekend. I am ready for the new year to come...mainly Summer...

Funny story.

Broc's grandparents sent out a funny email to me today. Here it is.

Mammogram - this is priceless!

A Day Without A Smile Is A Waste

While conducting some business at the Court House, I overheard alady, who had been arrested for assaulting a Mammogram Technician,say, "Your Honor, I'm guilty but.....there were extenuating circumstances." The female Judge said, sarcastically, "I'd certainly like tohear those extenuating circumstances." I did too, so I listened as thelady told her story. "Your Honor, I had a mammogram appointment, which I actually kept. I was met by this perky little clipboard carrier smiling fromear to ear and she tilted her head to one side and crooned, "Hi! I'mBelinda! All I need you to do is step into this room right here, stripto the waist, then slip on this gown. Everything clear ? " I'm thinking, "Belinda, try decaf. This ain't rocket science."Belinda then skipped away to prepare the chamber of horrors.. With the right side finished, Belinda flipped me (literally) tothe left and said, "Hmmmm. Can you stand on your tippy toes and leanin a tad so we can get everything ? " " Fine ", I answered. I was freezing, bruised, and out of air, so why not use theremaining circulation in my legs and neck to finish me off? My bodywas in a holding pattern that defied gravity (with my other breast wedgedbetween those two 4 inch pieces of square glass) when I heard and felta zap! Complete darkness, the power was off!
Belinda said, "Uh-oh, maintenance is working, bet they hit asnag." Then she headed for the door. "Excuse me! You're not leaving me in this vise alone are you?" I shouted. Belinda kept going and said, "Oh, you fussy puppy...the door'swide open so you'll have the emergency hall lights. I'll be rightback." Before I could shout NOOOO! She disappeared. And that's exactlyhow Bubba and Earl, "maintenance men Extraordinaire" foundme...half-naked with part of me dangling from the Jaws of Life and theother part smashed between glass! After exchanging a polite Hi, how's it going type greeting,Bubba (or possibly Earl) asked, to my utter disbelief, if I knew thepower was off. Trying to disguise my hysteria, I replied with as muchcalmness as possible, "Uh, yes, I did but thanks anyway." "OK, you take care now" Bubba replied and waved good-bye asthough I'd been standing in the line at the grocery store.
Two hours later, Belinda breezes in wearing a sheepish grin.Making no attempt to suppress her amusement, she said, "Oh I am sooosorry! The power came back on and I totally forgot about you! Andsilly me, I went to lunch. Are we upset ? " And that, Your Honor, is exactly how her head ended up betweenthe clamps...." The judge could hardly contain her laughter as she said " Case Dismissed ! "

No title. Just rambling.

I love fall. Maybe more now than when I was back home. When I see the leaves change colors, I think back to fall in Kentucky. Perfect weather.
Things have been going pretty good. I have been working a little more it seems and Broc seems to be traveling a little bit more. I am getting very excited for school next semester because I just want to finish! I have taken an interest in physical therapy. Nursing...seems great, but it's not just for me.
I've been dealing with the miscarriage pretty well. I had my post op appointment and everything is back to normal.
It gets a little hard when people bring new babies in to work and I have to deal with them.
It gets a little hard when I see ultrasounds of babies. I know it will happen again. I can't wait for that day. :)
I am always so grateful during this month.
I am grateful to be a member of the true church.
I am grateful that I am healthy
I am grateful for my eternal family
I am grateful to have a nice home
I am grateful to have a good job
I am grateful for every little thing in my life.
I love my life and wouldn't want it any other way.

I am so proud of Broc! He was called to the Young Men's a boy scout leader!
He is looking forward to serving in the Young Mens, and I know that he will be a great leader to these boys!
