It is Sunday, and while I always seem to have time on sundays now that chris is never here- we usually don't have internet. We thought this was due to there being no wifi near by but it turns out our computers are just crap. Ben is here and his HP has given me the freedom to write in my public journal. Happy day.
So Long story short Ben is Chris' cousin and he's living with us for a bit. It is super fun to have someone around and chris is enjoying hanging out with his cousin. Ben has a super strict diet and feels really sick if he doesn't go by it so i have been learning to cook some new things. We eat veggies almost every night, dont eat pasta at all. Its making US more healthy!
I got a calling today! I am first counselor in the primary presidency!!! Since our ward doesn't really have a primary its completely focused on the nursery which is just about the greatest thing ever!!! I subbed today and had so much fun. It may help with the baby hungryness... or it could make it even worse. The latter is more likely.
Speaking of babies.... I am having surgery on wednesday. My endometriosis has gotten out of hand and is so painful. So I am having a laparscopy with fulgaration and chromotubation. Bascially they make 3 small incisions, burn all the endometriosis and lesions on my uterus and then shoot dye though my falopian tubes and everything to make sure its all clear. It is supposed to increase my chances of being able to get pregnant (having endometriosis makes it very difficult) which is great news. All and all i just feel really blessed to have been put into this situation. When I first moved to provo I had a choice between 2 jobs and one paid more and had better benefits but i had such a strong feeling to take the other job. Working in the OBGYN office that I am now has been such a benefit. The dr I am working for is doing the surgery and is writing off his entire cost, I wouldn't have gotten this figured out for at least a few years if I hadn't had such close participation in helping others do it. Sometimes the lords way isn't convenient, but it is always the BEST way. Like my husband spending 6-8 hours at church on sunday, not convenient but it has already been such a blessing.My husband just said "hey pay attention to me and watch a movie" so i better go... haha.

Married life is the greatest adventure!!!

So our downstairs neighbors are not active members of the church but seem to be more apt to service than we are... we need to work on this. We don't even know their names! But they potted us some herbs and they are growing like mad! I am going to make a nice pesto out of the basil but haven't figured out a good recipe for the cilantro. The oregano will be used in pretty much everything!! In return I made them some of the cabinet doors i made for our bathroom, which now have shiny silver nobs on them! And my landlord offered to pay me if I made some for the other 2 people in my complex as well. SCORE!

Chocolate bundt cake on a fast sunday.... this is the way to break your fast! Chris had a rough time yesterday. He was at church for about 8 hours and came home to break his fast (another roast- shout out to the Jensens for inspiring me to be more adventureous with my cooking) and then he had another meeting so I baked this while he was gone. He was pleasantly surprised to say the least. Poor kid was gonna pass out or something.

I now need to document the greatest date of my life. Chris got home from his last sunday meeting and we both needed some fun. I volunteered the lame "lets eat cake and watch a movie" but my husband still has some tricks up his sleeve. We made popcorn and watched jaws in our very own fort. I haven't made a fort in a least a decade! Who comes up with this stuff? It felt like we were camping! We snuggled and I almost took the entire tent down when i jumped at the scary parts. Without the shawdow of a doubt- this is the MANN for me.

You may not remember Jaws very well- which means you should watch it again!! It really is a great thriller!!! This is Chris' scared face... :)
