Urgent Matter

This little bugger was waiting for me at 9:41 pm last night in my bathroom. It is the only place he knew he could get me because he knew I wouldn't be alone anywhere else in the home except for the bathroom. This is an actual picture of the rodent. I am happy to say I survived this ordeal. I soon realized that he was the suicide bomber. He knew that he would be killed so that his friend (pictured below) would not be expected and could attack me later that evening. Yes it is true. That means there were two ginormous spiders waiting for me in my bathroom. Hopefully, you can learn from my mistakes, do not live in a home that has openings to the outside world. In case you didn't hear during the summer there were two live bumble bees waiting for me in my bathroom. Hopefully I will be alive for more posts later.

Running=Five Guys

so saturday i taught spin and went for a thirteen mile run with the sis. and what did i do after that???? i made a beautiful lunch filled with lean proteins, veggies and a half cup of brown rice. YEAH RIGHT!!!! i really went to five guys with billy and ate a hamburger and probably close to three serving of fried goodness (french fries). following that, off to the costco to shop and try every sample numerous times!! never before have they had candy samples at the costco. i figured if i visited the candy booth in five minute intervals and took a handful of candies explaining they were for my polygamist family in the cereal aisle the man in the hairnet would never notice i kept coming for more. kids, that is how you trick or treat. why must i kill myself off running up the canyon for two hours and intake the same amount of calories burned in 13 minutes? i guess i will never learn!

dear today,

why does it have to be the second day of parent teacher conference?

why have I already finished my huge bag of cheezits (9:17 a.m) that were to last until 8 tonight?

why do I have a parent insisting that Billy and I come over to their house next wednesday to tutor their failing daughter for six hours? and why did he give me her phone number to text her at night to go to bed and every morning telling her to get up and come to school. i do not remember ever having a child with this man and now having to be her mother.

why did i wake up to go to the gym at five? i am so tired i can't see straight.

why is the internet slow the days that i am here for thirteen hours?

why do i never remember my classroom is freezing and insist on wearing short sleeved shirts in october.

why can i not come up with the perfect halloween costume?

dear every other day of my life,

why do i love my job so much?!

why does billy know that him dancing in the kitchen after a long day makes me incredibly happy?

how the heck did i get billy?

why does my mom still do my laundry for me because she knows i hate doing laundry?

why did we get an amazing little house to live in that is dirt cheap? and why does our landlord continually pay for our heating/water bills?

why do i have amazing friends in my life that still like me even though i am married? ha

why am i so dang happy?

why am i so lucky to have the gospel in my life?

Fall Tradition

Every Fall I convince billy that we need to take a trip up the canyon to look at the leaves. At the end of our Sundance extravaganza this year he said, “that was pretty painless.” He always dreads this tradition but I know deep down he loves staring at dying trees with me. I wanted him to collect leaves and start a leaf journal but that was one step too far. This year we traded him going up the canyon (1 hour) for me watching the byu and angel game (5 hours). Fair trade=you decide.

I got thirsty.

Pondering the beauty of his surroundings.

I have been watching way to much “America’s Next Top Model.”

Rise and Shout the Cougars are Out

It is football season and you know what that means in Provo.... BBQ's, traffic, hot chocolate, tackles, sno-cones and BYU students unleashing their crazy side once a week. Yes a student was escorted from the stands by a police officer for throwing a paper airplane last night. Billy and I got all-sports passes this year (our third football season together I might add) with Danny, Shelly and a bunch of friends. Last night BYU played Utah State. Billy and I took the scooter and got parking ten feet from the stadium, it was amazing! The ride home was a little chilly but so worth it.

In other news Billy has been rocking school. He got a 100% on his physics and calculus midterms and a 96% on his electrical engineering and religions tests. The class average for his calculus test was 67%!!! He is clearly the smartest person I know! He also has been learning about how to program applications for the I-phone so if you have any good ideas on an app you would like let us know! I am still LOVING school. My students are the best. It is so fun to get to know their personalities and how they learn best. I have a job that I look forward to getting up in the morning to go to! I started drivers ed. also and I was worried I wouldn't like it but it turns out it is so fun, and we have only had one minor accident ha! Next week I will be having a gum graft so I will be on an all liquid/really soft food diet. Feel free to join me for a weekend filled of movies, milkshakes and pudding. Bye bye for now.
