happy birthday to my mom

today is my mom's birthday... and incidentally it is also the anniversary of my baptism 20 years ago. i miss my mom, but i am not sad today. it is a deliciously cozy day. cloudy and on and off rainy. it has been amazing rainy/thunder/lightning weather the last couple of days and i am in heaven. i love love it. there is almost nothing i love more in this world than a thunder and lightning storm.
i feel so happy. you might think this is strange considering that i am on day 3 of low carb, but i am.
also i had an awesome birthday. we went to six flags, stayed the night at a cool hotel in berkeley, and went to san francisco the next day. i am officially 28. 28 feels good.
btw- i had to cancel my doc appt., but it's all good... more on that later.
i am also so excited for the holidays (including halloween). can't wait.
family: just so you're aware of our intentions, we will be in utah for thanksgiving and idaho for christmas. can't wait.
also, ashley boice... you have a sweet minivan now... there are no excuses for you guys to not be here. we miss you. remember, cream cheese is not a carb, so we're good to go. Oh!! i just realized that i can have stuffed mushrooms on my diet. yesssss.
sorry i'm rambling right now. there is more to blog, but i gots to get ready for work.

I was having a horrible day (I read it right after what happened at school WIth rob)I posted to my blog and saw on the side bar that you had posted...it made my day. I think we are going to call you guys today and see if we can make it work for this weekend.
