Andy's Getting Baptized!!

Well, as strange as it sounds, I have a kid that is getting baptized! Tomorrow is the big day for Andy! I am so proud of him and his desire to get baptized and make these covenants with the Lord. I was really worried about Andy while he was living with Z. He NEVER wanted to go to church and wasn't told he had to go, and when he visited us he would throw a fit so he wouldn't have to go (we still made him, don't you worry! lol). Now, Andy is super active in Scouts, he loves church and LOVES his teachers. I'm really proud of him. Bryant and I were talking the other day about what a strong spirit Andy has. He is one of those people who it's either black or white, you know? Andy is not a fence sitter at all. We can totally tell that Satan isn't thrilled with Andy getting baptized, everything that could happen this week, has! First, Andy's baptism was scheduled for 12 noon and on Monday morning I get a call saying that it's been changed to 8 am and that Andy wasn't the only one getting baptized. Super. I have the whole program planned and people coming in from out of town that won't be here until 10. That's not going to work. Go back to the PP and she says she'll talk to the Bish because 4 pm is now available. Super. That's late, but a little better. I tell people it's now at 4- only to get a call that 4 is too late because of ward Temple night our session is at 5 and the Bish won't be able to make it on time... ok... so 2? Ya, that'll work... Let's just pray there aren't anymore changes between now and 2pm tomorrow! lol. Last night we went and bought Andy a triple combination and a CTR ring. I was chit chatting with the man at the book store and told him we were going to write our testimonies in the BofM for Andy. The man says, "oh, that will be awesome. It will totally make him cry when he's on his mission". Mission? Wait! We still have 11 years! Only for the man to tell me it will fly by and we'll be reading his call before we know it! Super! lol. Anyway, the pic is the post card invitation we sent to our family for the baptism. Note the original time was noon! ;)

Everyday You Save My Life

This is Bryant and I want everyone to know I am married to the most beautiful woman in the world. We have been going through a lot and I know that I am lucky to have her in my life. To have the love of someone who sees in me more than I could ever see in myself.

There are two rascal Flatt's songs that if I had written and sung them couldn't say it better about how I feel. One is "our song" from our wedding. The other is a new song I heard just last night.

Allthough most of this is not in my own is my way of expressing how I feel and I couldn't say it better if I had written the words myself.

First our song. If anyone "knows" "our story" they understand why this song could have been written by me for my angel, and why it is "OUR SONG"!

Here are the lyrics

"Bless The Broken Road"

I set out on a narrow way many years ago
Hoping I would find true love along the broken road
But I got lost a time or two
Wiped my brow and kept pushing through
I couldn't see how every sign pointed straight to you

Every long lost dream led me to where you are
Others who broke my heart they were like Northern stars
Pointing me on my way into your loving arms
This much I know is true
That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you

I think about the years I spent just passing through
I'd like to have the time I lost and give it back to you
But you just smile and take my hand
You've been there you understand
It's all part of a grander plan that is coming true


Now I'm just rolling home
Into my lover's arms
This much I know is true
That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you

That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you.

This other song.... is even more intimate. It is like it could have been taken from a page in my journal or the numerous evenings lying in bed with her head on my should lately when I was trying to explain how I feel. I am not doing this so much for "everyone else" to see and think something, but so my angel knows how much she means to me "Everyday".

Here are the Lyrics.

Every Day
You could've bowed out gracefully
But you didn't
You knew enough to know
To leave well enough alone
But you wouldn't
I drive myself crazy
Tryin' to stay out of my own way
The messes that I make
But my secrets are so safe
The only one who gets me
Yeah, you get me
It's amazing to me

How every day
Every day, every day
You save my life

I come around all broken down and
crowded out
And you're comfort
Sometimes the place I go
Is so deep and dark and desperate
I don't know, I don't know

Repeat Chorus

Sometimes I swear, I don't know if
I'm comin' or goin'
But you always say something
without even knowin'
That I'm hangin' on to your words
With all of my might and it's alright
Yeah, I'm alright for one more night-
every day
Every day, every day, every day
Every day, every day
You save me, you save me, oh, oh, oh
Every day
Every, every, every day-

Every day you save my life

Autumn I love you... and especially even though I am far from perfect I am grateful that for some off reason you look on me with mercy and touch my life and make me want to live more everyday.

I love you.

Living Life because you love me,

If any of you have been keeping track like I have you would know it's been 5 months. It's been a long 5 months at that. For me at least. I wish that I could report that I went to the dr and did all that I could, but I didn't. I lost some weight, so that's good and the dr said he was proud of that. I took my BC everyday like a good little girl, and started on metformin. Anyways, my dr appointment was last Tuesday, the 5th. I was so super nervous and it totally doesn't help that I always end up waiting FOREVER at this dr (thank heaven they have tv's in the room). So, after my nearly hour wait the dr came in to chat it up. So, he looked at my blood work that we got done in November and then looked at me and said, "so you ready to start clomid?". I could not express my excitement! Clomid (clomiphene is the real name) is supposed to help you ovulate. So... the funny part, the dr gave me a schedule when to take it and when to do "it" lol. It was funny because you could tell he was a little uncomfortable telling me, which, hello! you are an OBGYN! Oh, well! So he tells me all the info, gives me the prescription and tells me good luck! The cutest thing is he says, "hopefully we'll see you in a few months to discuss where you'll deliver" Oh, too cute! :)
I left on cloud 9! I don't think it's a secret to anyone that I want a baby. For cryin out loud, Jess' mom told me that she asked her "crystal" if I were going to get pregnant this year and it said yes, then they narrowed it down to July, and I would have a girl. Can I tell you that I secretly hold that as hope? lol. Anyways, I guess it can take 4-6 months before you get pregnant (which would put me around July lol). He started me at a little higher dose than usual and upped my metformin. I am glad to get the process started and now just need to practice a tad bit of patience and we'll be in business. lol.
I know the day that I take that positive pregnancy test it will make it all worth it... let's just hope it'll be sooner than later! ;)

If you are looking at the time you are correct when you see that it's 3:54 AM. For the last few months I've been having the same flippen problem with my sleep. Every night I wake up at 3:17. At first I was like, ok there has to be an alarm set somewhere that is waking me... nope. So then I tried all of these relaxation tricks... nope. Then I tried talking myself into NOT waking up... worked for 2 nights. So... here I am. The weird thing is, I'm not that tired. Like, my body is getting used to waking up this stinkin early. Super. Sometimes Bryant will wake up if I get out of bed and he gets so irritated. It's funny. He's like, what are you thinking about? That's the thing... I'm not thinking about anything, but sleep. Usually I'll just lay in bed and try to go back to sleep. Today I went up and checked on the kids because Natali is sick.
Ya, so if anyone has ever had this happen to them and knows how to stop it... I would GREATLY appreciate your help!! :)
