A seven letter word that I am not liking too much! I am going to make this short and to the point...I don't like biology. Never will. This college course is going to be the death of me! Hence why there is no way I could ever become a doctor and anything else that requires you to take ten million biology, anatomy, or chemistry classes. I will be happy if I pass this class with something higher than a C this semester...hard for me to swallow when in the past I have been an A student...oh well! Too much stress doesn't do the body good. What doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger (and makes me realize I never want to take a science class again!)

The End!

It's Tax Season! I am trying to convince my husband (or maybe we are trying to convince each other) that some of our tax return should fund a vacation to here...

on one of these...

Happy Friday!

Blessings of the Temple...

Last night my mom, dad, Cory, Jenny, myself, and John all went to the Salt Lake Temple to do an endowment session. Our night started out at The Lion House Pantry. It's a quick eat, but so good! Every time I go to Salt Lake Temple it's a must! Before we headed over to the temple my mom pulled out the family cards we needed to do work for...I shuffled through the cards and pulled out a family member by the name of Nellie Smith :) She was from Wisconsin and born in 1885. I know after doing her work she was probably very happy! It was such a fun night. I absolutely love going to the temple with my family. This is definitely something that needs to happen more often. I am so grateful for the temples and for the knowledge that someday I will get to be with all of my family for all eternity!

So, today I had this orientation thing at the hospital because I am going to be helping out with some billing...I guess you could say it's like a second job, but not really :) It's five hours a week and really good pay...extra money that can be spent on vacations, clothes, or buying my husband something really nice! ha ha so anyway...back to what I got on here to blog about. I thought this orientation was going to last until three, but I actually got out and one. I got home and well, gave the doctors a call, something I should have done months ago...but I've been extremely NERVOUS! I guess you can say John and I have been trying to have children and aren't having much success. When I was 16 years old I was diagnosed with endometriosis and a severe case of ovarian cysts. I remember the doctor telling me, "if you were old enough I would tell you to have children right now". Now sorry to through in all the fun womanly parts into this post, but I got a laperoscopy done and right ovary wasn't functioning. It had been damaged by all the stuff going on inside of me. Sad enough to say...the doctor told me that getting pregnant when I was older would be a challenge...Just what you want to here, right?! For some reason in the back of my head I tried to ignore that fact and now that we are trying and wanting children, those words are haunting me in my sleep...seriously though! I try to be funny and make joke of this situation, but it's not easy I'm not going to lie. It's what I think about 24/7 and it makes me cry thinking that there is even a slight possibility I won't be able to have my own children. So, before I decide to jump to any conclusions, I made an appt. with a doctor that my sister-in-law recommended. ( a big step for me) I thought I wasn't going to have to involve a doctor to tell me how to get pregnancy, but I thought wrong...Can March 1st come soon enough??? That is when I will go meet with Dr. Spencer and we will try to figure out what to do next. I'm NERVOUS...This appt. will probably consist of setting up a time for surgery (Lapo again) that way they can see what going on in there...if there is more damage or blockage (sorry for the openness, hopefully no one gets completely grossed out by this)

Though I am having a rough time with this right now...I know it's all going to work out. I am trying to be positive, not stress, and be patient with my Heavenly Father and myself. I love my husband and can't thank him enough for being here for me. It's been rough and hopefully something that will pay off in the end. So...MARCH 1st! BRING IT ON! :)

Happy V-Day!

Happy Valentine's Day

Well, tomorrow is Valentine's Day and I am not sure I will have time to get on here, so why I've got some free time tonight I wanted to let John know how much I love him and appreciate him. Things have been a little difficult for me lately and I know I am not the easiest one to deal with all the time, but he has been there for me day and night. I am so lucky to be married to someone who is so amazing. He makes me smile every day and I am so grateful for that. Happy Valentine's Day John! I love you so much and can't thank you enough for all you do for me.

For Valentine's, we are getting take out (not sure's a surprise) my only recommendation is that we get chocolate covered strawberries. Than we will probably watch a movie...nothing big, just a night to relax and snuggle :) my fav! Tuesday, we are going with my parents and Cory and Jenny to the SLC temple to do an endowment session.

P.S.- It's our 2 year anniversary in 2 weeks!

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!

Thought for today...

"Patience is waiting. Not passively waiting. That is laziness. But to keep going when the going is hard and slow - that is patience."

This Quote sure makes me giggle...I don't know about all of you, but when I am trying to be patient and wait for things, I wait passively :) So I am trying to be better with this and when I wait for things, I want to wait optimistically instead.

Happy 1st Birthday Charlie!

So, first off I would like to give a shout out for the Green Bay Packers! Last nights Superbowl was first we wondered if it was going to be a clean sweep, but both teams made it very entertaining to watch. The commercials were favorite was the Volkswagen one with the little Darth Vader kid...SO CUTE! Go ahead and see for yourself if you missed it...

So, what I actually got on here to blog about...It's my cute dogs birthday today! Charlie is one year old! and looking as cute as ever. I know people think it's weird that I blog about my dog...but John and I love this little guy so much! He was our Easter present last year and ever since that day, it was the best decision we have made. Believe it or not, he has prepared us for children (early mornings, potty training, going to the doctors, late nights, wanting to play at two in the morning, and most importantly...he makes us so happy) Happy birthday buddy! We love you so much and are so glad we have you in our family :) Here's to many more years to come!
