4 Years

Yes it has been 4 years since Roy and I were married. Well 4 years and 2 days. We were married October 20, 2005 in the Salt Lake Temple. We have really enjoyed every moment so far and can't wait to enjoy the moments to come.

We have accomplished a lot together and also experinced a lot as well. We are a team and that is what makes marriage fun!

To celebrate our anniversary we headed out to the strip to eat dinner at the new Hard Rock Cafe. It was good, VERY LOUD, but fun. We then wen to the NY NY to get some ice cream and play the arcade games, and of course put a couple dollars into a slot machine... no winnings :(

It was fun to just be together, catch up and reminice on exciting moments we have shared together. One of our favorite moments was getting Molly. I can't believe how fast time flies and soon it will be 5 years and then 25 and then.......

Learning A Lot

Well I am learning a lot about how to get stains out of carpet and clothes. On Saturday Macie must have thought it would be fun to chew up a black pen. Well I didn't think it was very funny when I came home to a good sized spot of black ink on the really light carpet. Not in a spot where you can just put a rug over it. Roy immediately got online to look for ways to get it out. We tried all sorts of concoctions, but soon realized that rubbing alcohol worked the best. Yay for alcohol!!!
Then on Sunday night right before we had some friends over for dinner I noticed there were blood spots on the carpet. Molly had cut her lip on a rawhide chewie and dripped blood all through out the house. Luckily I knew that hydrogen peroxide gets blood out easily because Roy gets bloody noses all the time. Any way I quickly dumped some hydrogen peroxide on all the spots and broke out the carpet cleaner that has really come in handy since we have had it.
So now for all of you that have to get ink or blood out of something you know how!!!

Roy and I have been playing a lot of Yahtzee on the Wii. It is a little addicting... Actually Roy won't stop at night until he wins a game. I just had to brag little more about my amazing game of Yahtzee. I crushed him!!!

I know it is kind of pathetic that I blogged about this, but wouldn't you?

Bumps in the road of life

Well as many of you have probably heard, we have had a taste of the American dream and and felt a piece of the American reality. We had an offer on a perfect house accepted. Well as many of you know, money talks and someone else put in a higher offer and they accepted theirs after they accepted ours. RULES.... Apparently there are none in the game of buying a house. We have decided to put the brakes on this house thing for a while.

In the meantime we are trying to make our little apartment feel more homey. I got so excited about getting a home I started to neglect keeping up on house work and fixing things that needed fixed. Today we cleaned the carpets, loaded the kitchen with food and replaced our down comforter on our bed that had multiple holes in it. Which meant feathers were everywhere!!!!

We were almost done with all our chores for the day, all we needed was one last trip to the grocery store. On our way we took all the trash out, even the old laminator that had been sitting on the front porch for a month. We got in the Mustang and went to start her up.... Click click click... What??? Dead battery. We jumped it and took her to Auto zone. A few precious dollars and a new battery later we were finally off to the grocery store.

I am finally starting to recover from being sick. Many of you know that I don't get sick very often and when I do, I don't let it stop me from doing much. I had to take almost 3 days off work to recover from this one. I am positive I got sick from the germy kindergartners I teach on a daily basis. I am not really looking forward to going back to work. I am sure it will be a disaster in my classroom after 3 days of substitutes.

Well sorry to vent today, there really isn't anything exciting to write about. We are just crossing our fingers for something positive to happen anytime soon!!!
