You Move! Again, for the seventh time in seven years. And you take steps backward from the goals you have already reached.
House - Check!
Fenced back yard for puppies-Check!
Good Jobs for both of us- Check!
Living by/closer to family-Check!
Ward we love-Check!
I could keep going but I think you get my drift. Only problem...no kids. And no matter what we do it seems that the children keep getting further and further away. And everyone we know keeps getting more and more.
I just went through a year of emotional, hormonal torture. And now 2 surgeries; one very intense, reconstructive surgery. My Dr. called it the blue plate special because I got it ALL! Top them all off on the last 5 years of pain and saddness of trying for a baby and you can kind of get my drift. (Just so you know, you have to have been trying for a baby for more then 2 years to even consider yourself 'having trouble getting pregnant' 3 plus and you're infertile. Trying for a few months to a year doesn't count)
So what do all of our prayers and wishes come to? Living back home with my parents. Sure its so we can save money. But when you tell people that your living with your parents what do they automatically assume? Well I'll leave that one up to you.
Adoptions and In vitro fertilization are so expensive. But the way I see it, its like in high school when some kids are given a car when they turn 16. They didn't earn it and there for don't fully appreciate it. Its the kids that work hard and save every penny for their very own car that love it more then anything else because they earned it.
Having a baby isn't a right, it isn't something that should be taken for granted. Having a baby is a very precious, very important job that God gives you. It drives me crazy when people complain about their children. He won't stop crying, she gets into everything, Why can't I have a calm baby. SHUT UP! You have a child, and its hard. But you better love every single minute of it because you were given that wonderful gift, be grateful!
I know this is what we should be doing, and I know it will all work out in the end. Thats what makes it so hard, I trust God knows what he is doing. Even though I keep asking him for Ice Cream Cones, he keeps handing out Porcupines. But who knows. Maybe one day I'll need a porcupine.
Now if you didn't heed my warning and read this anyway. Don't think to badly of me please. Your life may be pretty much perfect and I know mine isn't, so please don't judge me.

So, these next three aren't in order, but they go together so nicely (sorry, but the bunny is sideways)
Joey is... well we all know him, he is a bit out there some times, in a good way! He decided for his marketing for work he would dress up as the current holiday character.
For Joey boys birthday, we set off for the lovely (and exciting I might add) Lava Hot Springs. To bad we came in April when the town is still hibernating. Only four shops were open and two restaurants. And the hot springs of course, but they are open all year round. Thank goodness one of the open shops was an ice cream parlor, we went every night. Square scoops, whats more awesome then that!
This was our hotel. It was very nice and I would recommend staying here for a couple, not a family. Their bathtubs are bigger then most kiddie swimming pools. I could swim in ours! Took forever to fill up though.
For Kimberly and Brent's second(or is it third?) anniversary they came up to visit us! We took them to the historic town of Idaho City. I'd never been there before and it reminded me of Pioneer Village at Lagoon, only not inside an amusement park. It smelled like it too.
For appetizers and dessert we went to Barbacoa! I LOVE THIS PLACE!! Um...sorry for shouting, I just really like this restaurant . Way to expensive to go to for anything other then a special occasion, but its so delicious!
Now for more recent activities. Jill and her two adorable daughters came for a visit! I loved every single minute and now my house is much to quiet. Yes Jill, I enjoyed the noise. Lanea really bonded with Roxy on this trip, she was in Roxy's kennel more often then not, with Roxy. It was so sweet.
So that was April-July. I know July isn't over yet, and there is more yet to come. Roxy girl is preggers and will be having puppies in August. Joey and I are still fighting the no children problem and I'm scheduled for surgery (small surgery) in August. Kimberly will be having her baby the first of August and Lacey will be having hers at the end of August. So August will be VERY crazy and full of babies, but thats why it will be fun.

I can't tell you how much I love this movie! I'll be honest, the costumes are scanty, the songs suggestive and the acting is cheesy, but its all so Captivating!! I love the singing! and the costumes. I know they look like sluts but come on, I'm sure you wish you could dance like that too and get away with that out fit!
I've never been a big fan of Cher's but I've always loved Christina Aguilera, her voice, oh my gosh! I got it on Netflix about a month again when Joey was in Vegas for work and watched it 3 times that week. It has been in my head ever sense.
Now for 'Allysen-is-the-greatest-even-though-she's-crazy-and-extremely-moody-and-tends-to-cry-always-but-shes-still-pretty-and-she'll-be-off-the-drugs-soon' Day, Joey bought it for me!!! Silly Joey, you'll have those songs stuck in your head just like me soon. Only they will be driving him crazy instead of entertaining him. Oh well, I love it!!
