2008 is going to be a banner year

i'm so excited and inspired for life right now, so i thought it would be a good time to plan out some of my resolutions for the year...

* plant and nurture a garden full of delicious vegetables that i then use to prepare delicious healthy meals
* along with that i want to get as self sufficient as possible. ie: start our food storage, grind my own wheat... you can use your imagination
* continue on my quest to learn the banjo and the guitar. for those of you who don't know, tyler and i had roberta order us a banjo, and we've been practicing at her house together. who knows, maybe we'll take our act on the road. sonny and cher meets john denver. but seriously, tyler is doing it for therapy on his right hand... isn't that great?
* get a serious start on making a documentary with rachel rennaker about marriage/divorce
* visit teach
* get out of debt
* get pregnant
* read lots of good books that will enrich my mind and soul
* maybe write a book of my own
* take a couple of credits of night classes at the college towards my b.s.
* lose 10 pounds.... but more than that, i want to be and feel healthy and in shape
* stop being intimidated of recipes that look "fancy" to me. try them and master them.
* maybe make up a couple recipes of my own
* be responsible
* keep an immaculate house
* get back the same kind of scriptural knowledge that i had on my mission
* be a really really good wife we'll see how all that goes. any good ideas for other resolutions?

what's on my mind right now

1. i wish that crazy people (like the woman sitting across from me in the library) would not talk in public... quit freaking everbody out, you know?
2. i am starving
3. i finally finally got past the first two pages of east of eden and it's really really good. i can't wait to get back to it.
4. do you ever feel like you're surrounded by incompetence... i do, and i think these people should be publicly recognized... where has all the customer service gone??? i'll tell you where- Ray's chevron in rexburg. i go there for gas without fail (even though it's more expensive) because they have squeaky clean 15 yr old boys running around pumping everyones gas and accepting their payments with a smile.
5. i just finished the peacegiver (kelly has been bugging me for forever to read it) and it is so good. everyone needs to read it. it is particularly good for, but not limited to, people who hate their spouses.
6. we just got two unexpected checks in the mail, one kinda big, as refunds from our mortgage companies of the duplex. woohoo
7. tyler has been waiting for EVER, impatiently, for this particular documentary to be sent by netflix. he kept thinking it was at the top of the queue (sp?) but then it wouldn't come. it finally came today and you have never seen anyone happier... then he took it out, and the dvd was cracked in half on one side.
...........what's on your mind right now??

greetings from jackson hole!

tyler and i are in jackson for the weekend celebrating our two year anniversary. very cozy. we are staying at the wyoming in, which i really like. very cozy atmosphere and a very delicious and extensive breakfast in the morning. this morning i had bacon egg and cheese quiche, bran muffin, and grapefruit juice. delish. we saw juno in the theatre this afternoon, so i finally got to see the first 20 minutes, and tyler finally got to see it in general. tyler wasn't a fan... he said that he thought it wasn't a particularly great message. i told him that i only took him to see it so that he'd get me pregnant. haha. after the movie we ate at a thai place that was so good. well that's all for now. have to get back to my honeymoon!
