first of all, shauna has a blog now which i am very proud of her for / excited about. check it out she is very talented.
also, i really liked kelly's post today about life being different than what you plan it out to be. soooo true. i never thought that i would be 26 with no kids. c'est la vie right? tyler and i made the mistake of actually getting our hopes up this month only to be double crushed. however it has sparked my mind to think about other options. so, i'm trying to get pregnant and that's what we want super bad, but in the mean time i guess i could bump up some "long term" goals that i have. like i think i might want to go back to school for one. i know that at some point i am supposed to finish and get a masters in social work, but i always pictured that way down the road when i had older kids. why not now? i told tyler about maybe wanting to go back and he said the only reason to go back would be to make more money. oh tyler... he's all about the benjamins.
thirdly, we watched "american mormon" last night, that funny documentary where they go around talking to people on the streets about what they think of mormons. totally reminded me of being on a mission, except the people were nicer. this one girl said that mormons didn't dance, that it was outlawed.... he looked at her and said "that sounds kinda like foot loose". i laughed so hard i spit my water on the carpet.
fourth, i am finally reading the princess academy and i really like it and i really like miri. like a lot. maybe i love her.... but i don't know cause i'm only half way through the book so far. i really want to write. that is my ultimate dream job is to write novels. it is so close to my heart and i am so scared of it... and because i'm scared i never just start writing... because what if i try to start writing and i discover that all my sentences are really long and run on and i don't know how to shorten them to an acceptable length?
lastly, brett's family came up for the long weekend and it was so fun and cozy. i love their kids so much, and they are so respectful and well behaved, it's unbelievable. except of course for the boogar that someone about ian's height left on the wall in the hallway. nobody's perfect.
