Time for complaining :)

Hmm I am re-discovering my body and my patterns that are so unhealthy. Every day after work it is lunch time and then time for Isaiah to take his nap. I should be getting stuff done around the house with the limited time I have at home however, I am so exhausted. I go to lay down and I just toss and turn the whole time. So I waste time and I am still tired. It's so frustrating!
Then I have always believed I had stomach ulcers that burn between my ribcage and have always had upper back strain. I am now realizing that they are related. If my stomach burns, my back hurts... or if my back hurts, my stomach burns. Hmmmm this is very confusing to me. I am stumped. I feel so unheathly right now!

Date Night/ Tragedy

Jake got Jazz tickets from his boss a while back and we had been planning on a date night for a while. While driving out to Salt Lake we discussed the difference places we wanted to eat and after going back and forth for a while Jake won and we went to PF Changs for dinner. Afterwards we walked to the Energy Solutions Arena to watch the game. We both realized it had been a while since either of us had been to something like that because of our hectic schedules and having Isaiah around so we were enjoying just the atmosphere of it. It was so nice to spend some quality time together! The Jazz were playing Atlanta. A few minutes into it, we heard of the tragic news up at Trolley Square that there was an 18 year old that went on a random shooting rampage killing at least 5 and then the police shot him. I was in shock just thinking about the people that had no idea this was going to happen and Jake and I even mentioned going to the Pub right there in Trolley Square that night. It was a bitter sweet night for us. I am so grateful that we were together and not involved in anyway but how awful for the families involved. My prayers are with them all.

Came across old picture..

I had totally forgot about what a fun day that was.. so many years ago. My sisters and I would love to plan a day to all get our hair done the same day from the same guy. I would miss school to spend the day with them. I think this is the first picture that made me realize I really do resemble them for once (we have different dads). I am just a shade darker :) These are good memories!

Bowling luck!

So on Saturday, Jake and I went bowling with his work. First of all, I haven't bowled in close to a full year... and our first game I got a 189! I blew Jake out of the water :) ha ha. It was pure luck, on the second round I lost all energy and got a 120... so maybe Jake and I should go bowling some more and I can give him a few lessons. HA!

I had to take a picture of this to rub it in for years to come.

The front room

Also this is the difference between the old front room (the sellers) to ours... the buyers! Same room, a month difference :)

From old to new

I wanted to show what a difference changing a few things can do for your home. This is the same room...The first picture is of the house when we looked at it to buy it. It was the sellers decor and stuff in there. When we got in, I knew I wanted my extra bedroom to be more inviting before Christmas.. so a weekend before, my husband and I threw on some paint and got a bed and new curtains. WHAT A DIFFERENCE.. we got a white piece of furniture that goes in there now that makes it look even better. I am proud of the small work and huge change!

Don't we all look forward to the weekend?

I am really excited to have a weekend here again, even though I really don't have plans. On the downside a big fear of mine happened and I woke up with a sore throat and Isaiah woke up early (meaning I think he may be sick as well). Not a great way to start out the weekend :) I just got finished telling myself a few nights ago that our family had gone a few months without getting sick.. then BAM it hit me upside the head. I should have knocked on wood. The last thing we want as parents is to see our children suffer with any type of cold or illness. I would MUCH rather be sick.. but it looks as though it will be at least Isaiah and I and hopefully we can not get the MAN of the house sick or else all hell will break loose! ha ha. Anyway I can just hope and pray to get through the weekend without getting too miserable where we can still enjoy each other and laugh a bit. I have had too many weekends without the laughing and it is definitely needed .... (and if I have enough energy to clean and organize) !!!
