Hooray! we have finally moved in to our own place! It feels so nice to have my own things out and the kids absolutely love having their toys! well we were going to buy a house but that didn't happen and I think it was actually a good thing since we are planning on moving next summer anyway. so we're living in a trailer now and it's not bad. It smelled a little funky at first but we shampooed the carpets and I cleaned EVERYTHING! It took a few days to get the place clean enough to start moving our things in from the storage unit but we finally did and now we only have a handful of things left to unpack! Ryker loves being able to crawl and explore the whole house and Jonah likes having his stuff out, like his costumes and pirate treasure, and swords all he ever wants to do is play, he always asks me "what can we do?" which really means what can we play. Luckily with all his toys I can just say go look in your room for something to do and he's busy for a long time! Moving is so much work! after living in a real house in San Antonio for a year I didn't realize how much stuff we had until we were unpacking and trying to figure out where to put everything in the trailer, but we got most of it put away some things are crowded in but it will do until we move again! It just feels so nice to have a place to call "home".
Michael and I met when he just got home from his mission and started dating soon after. My mom wasn't too happy with me dating an RM she said he would want to get married and I thought "yeah right" I guess mothers do know best! After casually dating for a while Michael went to Idaho but before he left he broke up with me:( I didn't know why but I was determined not to let it bother me. That night for single adult FHE we picked names from a hat to go on a date with I can't remember my would-be dates name but he had a Corvet and I was excited to ride in it. When I got home Michael called me, I had no idea why since we had just broken up, but I talked to him and told him that I had a date for the upcoming dance, he hung up on me. But he called back and apologized and said the thought of me dating someone else made him sick and he couldn't talk to me. then he asked if I would go to the dance with him if he came back. of course I said yes and he asked me not to date anyone else. I haven't even wanted to and we've been blissfully married for eight years and have been greatly blessed with 4 children, the highlights of my life.
