In less than 24 hours, a great thing will happen! I will finally have a husband back at home for more than a week! I can hardly stand to wait, it has been so long since I last saw Tom...I mean, yes I see him every day, for a few minutes here and there, but I don't really see him. And Sundays are always so busy with church, callings and naps of course!

I think tomorrow is going to be a long day waiting for Tom to finish with his everyone please pray for him!

Snow Day

This is not from today, but this is what I wish we were doing...instead Tom is studying! :(
Today is a snow the roads are closed. Today, I will be stuck inside all day, when I really needed to go to the store to get some groceries for dinner. Instead we will have to have something else. Today, I will be taking a nap (well, I do that most days)...Today, I need to find a babysitter.

My thoughts today, turn to my Mother. I love my Mom with all my heart! I wish I was in Idaho Falls, to give her my support today...all days really, but especially today! I am feeling kind of homesick, wanting to see my family, and play games...not cook dinner, but call my Mom and ask whats for dinner and tell her I'll be over in 5. Luckily we will have family here for the next two weeks so that will be nice. We're going to do lots of fun things....

*Going to the Olympic Training Center

*Hopefully going to the Colorado Springs Zoo

*Going to Casa Bonita (supposedly a great restaraunt here)

*Going to the US Mint

*Going to Old Chicago
*Playing LOTS and LOTS of games!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This Friday, the day after tomorrow, Tom's parents will be here til Tuesday. Then on Monday night my little sister Alexis flies in to spend almost a week. We will have a 4 day break and then my Grandparents will be here for just over a week! I'm so excited!

I am addicted to the show Desperate's ridiculous really. I saw a friend on FaceBook say how good it was, and I decided I had LOTS of alone time, with Tom always studying that I would try it out. I have finished almost 4 seasons in less than a month! It's really crazy, but it's so good, and it gives me something to do. Which is good....

Anyways, I feel like I've gone on forever, so now I will go. Miss everyone tons! Hope to see everyone soon!

Peanut Butter

Yesterday, I was busy making dinner and Elli was getting in the way, we have a VERY small kitchen, so I decided to give her some celery and peanut butter. She finished it all, and LOVED it, but was a bit messy! At least she enjoyed it!

A great friend...

Once in a while a great friend comes along in life. I have a great friend, a best friend, a once in a lifetime friend in my friend Mara! Today I got to have a lovely chat with this great friend, and even though we are a long ways apart, it's like no time has passed since we last talked, and we can share our innermost thoughts, and there are no judgements passed, just respect for the other person and what they are going through. So, a blog post, to my once in a lifetime friend Mara! You're the best!

Zoo lights...

Unfortunately I can not get my zoo lights pictures uploaded to my computer, so that will have to wait for another time....
