As I guessed these past 2 weeks have been CRAZY! You can tell everyone is going a bit nuts.  This month has just been really hard.  REALLY hard!

I guess its time i say out loud, I started the month with a miscarriage.  Not the way I had planned on starting my new year.  Shortly after Derek's grandma was admitted to the hospital and passed away on 1/19/2012.  She is a awesome wonderful lady who will be missed!

The day of her funeral i started re-bleeding and had to go in for an ultrasound to make sure everything was okay.  LUCKILY i did not need a d&c. Doc just decided my body was struggling, but SHOULD right it self out in a month or so.  We will see.  Needless to say it was not a fun day for either of us. I think going in to the doc for the ultrasound might have been one of the hardest parts of everything.  Seeing all the happy pregnant moms made it really hit home what had happen.

Working both jobs back to back with a drive to SLC from Provo has been crazy nuts! I have been enjoying my new job, but i am SUPER excited for training to end so i can resume a more normal life again. 

My kiddos have been SUPER TROOPERS as they have had to spend a lot more time at baby sitters houses than normal.  Thankfully a bunch of days my sweet dad was able to pick them up early and play with them until we got home.  Can i just say i have THE BEST DAD EVER! He helped with my kids, bought me dinner, AND did my dishes and took out my trash when he was over. :) He knew how crazy my life was and just wanted to help. I sure love him!! My kids love him bunches as well. :)

I am excited for every thing that is to come.  Mostly i am looking forward to next week when life will calm down and I will be home more :) I think that i want to take the kiddos to a hotel next weekend so we can just relax and spend some good time together! :)

Here is to January ending and a new beginning for February!

crazy 2 weeks!

These next 2 weeks are going to be pure crazy! Its okay though.  I am really excited! I just started working for Steal Network! I am SO excited! I have already LOVED the first 2 days of training. :) I am still working at Prosper just you know doing both jobs. :) 
Its from home though so its not bad ;)!
the reason its SO crazy is because training is up in SLC.  So i am going from Prosper straight up to training in SLC.  My poor kiddos are living it up at sitters A LOT these next 2 weeks. :( But its for a GREAT reason! They are being good sports so far.  Lets hope they continue to be for the 8 more days i have. :)

So yeah, I am excited!!!!

the happenings

I pulled her out of preschool. I was not impressed with what she was learning. Not enough learning and too much playing for my taste, i don't want to pay for that! We are going to work with her at home. I was testing her the other day to see what letters she could write and what letters needed more work. When we got to "U" she dropped her pen looked up at me and said, "Mom! I can't write that letter! Its the stinking Ute letter!" lol Oh how i love my little girl! (don't worry she wrote the "stinking Ute" letter just fine after i reminded her its also in BYU)
Hopefully, I can help her enough at home. 

Is just continuing to be Abby.  She is growing up so fast its amazing to me! She is no longer my little toddler.  She is my big toddler!  She SURE has her opinions and wants them to be heard!
She LOVES babies/dollies.  She has lots and lots of babies, and loves to take care of them.  Its so cute to watch her be a little mommy!

This month i am doing good on my resolution! Read 5 chapters every day, yay! Well i am blogging right now so that knocks this week of my list. 
Oh so guess what, I am going to be starting a new job Friday. Its just on call so i am still going to work for Prosper. :) It's from home too, yay! I am excited, its for Steal Network. You know, babysteals and kidsteals. I am EXCITED! :)
Wish me luck to stay sane :) 

Is still working his job and enjoying it!!  Hes a great husband and father and I love him!! :)

new years resolution

This year I am going to make a few goals a month. Its so hard to do a bunch of goals a year for me. This month I have 2 goals.

1. Read 5 chapters of scripture a day
2. Blog once a week (this so counts as this week!)

Hopefully this will help me focus more on my goals and they will happen.

What are your goals?
