I know everyone feels like they have so much to do and not enough time to do it but I really don't think I have time to do what I want to do or maybe I don't manage my time very wisely? it seems like my house always needs to be cleaned and I always have papers to file and put away, not to mention the 2 months worth of things I need to file that are in a huge manila envelope from when we lived with my brother-in-law, and taking care of someone who is always hungry, tired, poopy or just bored and needs to be entertained. Halloween is coming up and I need to make Ryker's costume, still! I've been dying to try to make some bread but I just haven't found the time maybe soon I hope! I don't mean to complain so much but I have just been feeling a little overwhelmed and need to vent so don't read too much into it, you don't really need to read it if you don't want to, I'm just getting everything out! I think I might be just a little sleep deprived, Michael's schedule is very long, he goes to school most morning's and then works late in the day on into the night and doesn't get home most nights until 10:30 or 11 pm and usually I stay awake so I can see him but then I get up with Jonah at 6:30 and get him off to school. So I don't start my days very refreshed and I haven't been sleeping very well anyway I just can't get comfortable! but I'm so excited for Halloween Jonah's costume just arrived today! and then in a few more weeks Ryker will be turning one! I can't believe it! I'm so happy to be a mommy! That's the one thing that I would describe myself as I can't wait to have more but I need to work on managing my time and being organized so I can do more fun mommy things like go to the park! But I'm glad that I can make our home nice and make yummy home cooked meals everyday for my family that always make me feel like I accomplished something, even if all you can see from it is dirty dishes to clean up and toys scattered through the house to put away, I'm very grateful for my family and for the blessings my Heavenly Father has given us. I'm also grateful for our trials (like learning to manage time) and the opportunity to grow from them!
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.
