Another June Update

The first bit of this past week was really crazy, then it slowed down, and today it was crazy again. Summer term classes started on Monday and I decided to take only one history class and then a religion class. Also on Monday I started a 370 page book for my history class. Alan took me on a date to go bowling--I beat him :D-- and later, in the evening, we went to his hockey game. Sadly his team didn't win, but he scored a sweet goal! Tuesday Alan left for Fort Lewis, Washington where he will be until July 20. Ugh. Wednesday I got to talk to him which was wonderful!

Wednesday and Thursday weren't crazy, just had work and school. My friend Emily and I went bowling after work on Thursday, this time I didn't break 100, but neither did Emily; I guess neither of us wanted to embarrass the other or something, haha! That was a lot of fun and I'm glad we went. Friday I had a quiz on that 370 page book in my history class. I think that I did pretty well on the quiz, but we'll see for sure on Monday. Friday night my friend Courtney and I went and got fruit smoothies and then went to the dollar theater (the ONLY place to see movies in theater). We saw "How to Train Your Dragon." I loved it! I thought that it was such a cute movie, and it was pretty humorous. I totally recommend it.

Today, Saturday, my parent's and Karen came down to drop off furniture from Grandma. Then they helped me to fix our vacuum and clean up the house a little bit. It was so wonderful to see them and it was so awesome of them to help me in the house. My family is wonderful! Too bad that days can't be longer because my in-laws went to the Manti pageant and I totally wish I could have gone with them. I've never been and it would have been wonderful to hang out with them.

My parent's couldn't stay and so now I'm sitting here alone watching Food Network (which is all I watch anymore) and trying to convince myself to do dishes. I'm a little bit lonely right now with my family and Alan gone, especially Alan. I have awesome friends and family that are here for me, but nothing beats having my husband around. I'm just a little lonely. He's only been gone since Tuesday, but it seems like forever since I've heard his voice or seen his face. SIgh, well enough of this self-pity, I'm off to do dishes and then watch a movie/go to bed.

No rest for the weary

Spring term is almost over; finals are next Wednesday and Thursday. I've decided that I really like the shortness of Spring term. Yeah you have a whole semester packed into half the time, but it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. I will probably end up with the same grade I would have gotten if I had taken the classes during a regular semester. I took two history classes which works out to 6 credits. Summer term, which starts next Monday, I'm taking two history classes again, but I'm going to add a religion class (Pearl of Great Price) in there also for a total of 8 credits. The maximum you can take for Spring or Summer term is 9 credits--that equates to about 18 credits during a regular semester--so I'm really going to be pushing myself. And then as soon as Summer term is over (August 11 and 12 are finals) I'll be starting two history Independent Study classes and then taking a religion course during Fall. So as I said, no rest for the weary. It's one of my goals to finish my undergraduate degree and by golly I will!

I'll mention what's happening with my baby for Kari's sake. The pregnancy is going fine, I'm more than half-way done now. We're keeping the gender a surprise, so I refer to the little one as just Baby. No, I'm not worried about what to buy for Baby, or what people are going to buy; green's my favorite color anyway and since Baby won't have a preference on color for some time yet it will work out perfectly. Haha! Alan still is really hoping for a boy; I'll admit I'd really like a boy also, but my gut (no pun intended) tells me that it's a girl. We'll just have to see in October! And no I don't have any pictures to share at this time. Alan and I are being really bad about documenting the pregnancy. I'll try to get some this week.

Still alive . . .

Yes, I know it's been DECADES since I last wrote. Okay, not decades, but it's been a long time.

This semester has been going well. I'm still working at the little store and going to classes. My last project is due next Friday. It's for my Family History class and what I have to do is write a biography for my grandmother. There are a couple of other things that comprise the project, but that's the main one. I need at least 7 pages of biography plus at least 30 hours of research. I also need to interview my grandma. I have barely 16 hours and I haven't done any of the other stuff. I'm a little nervous for getting this done, but I think that I can buckle down and do it.

Everything else is going well in my life. I'm about 4 months along right now. Oh yeah, that's right, I forgot to spread the good news on my blog. Alan and I are pregnant!!! :D As stated I'm about 4 months along right now, just entered my second trimester. I still can't believe that I'm actually pregnant. I've only had two bouts of morning sickness, both after 7 pm so I've been really blessed in that regard. The hunger and fatigue are both backing down, but I still have to eat at regular intervals and get at least 8 hours of sleep a night. So all in all, my pregnancy has been really easy so far. I am so grateful for that.

Well Conference just started so I'm out!
