Well, a few things have happened in the last couple weeks that I guess could be labeled "blog-worthy". 2 weeks ago Clinton and I were extended the calling of...nursery workers! I told Clinton this calling was his fault because he's not comfortable around children--so the Lord is providing him an opportunity to become comfortable. I was released from my two other callings and am looking forward to the treats and play time during church hours.:) The funny thing about this new calling is that one of Clinton's really good friends at school and his wife (my co-worker) are our partners in nursery. We will be teaching the same group! We just can't get away from each other!;) We're both really happy about it actually. We get along really well and this way the burden of working in nursery won't seem so bad!
We had a birthday in our house this last week...Clinton turned 29! He celebrated his birthday by studying for his finals :( Yipee!...however, I did see him for about an hour on his birthday and we enjoyed some Golden Double-Stuffed Oreos (his favorite). I prefer the regular, non-double-stuffed myself, but this way he gets extra innerds...I always scrape out the center and just dunk the cookie part (unless of course they are the original Oreos and then I can't help but eat the whole thing.) The day after his birthday all of our friends got together at Buffalo Wild Wings for supper. It was really nice to see him relax and enjoy a dinner out with friends. After dinner we went to DQ for $1.99 small blizzards (one of his friends bought his...I thought that was really nice), I picked up my glasses and then we went home and he returned to his studies. Not the most exciting birthday ever, however, I think amongst all the chaos he still felt loved and appreciated. Happy Birthday H.B.!! You are so wonderful and smart and I am so blessed to have you in my life. Thank you for working so hard to achieve your dreams and for working so hard to provide a wonderful future for our family. Thank you for making me laugh every day and for helping me to become a better person. I love you so much!
Update: I FINALLY got my eyes taken care of and can see again!!! I've had my prescription changed a couple of times now, but last Saturday I met with the eye doctor and had my eyes checked and was given the "O.K." to get contacts again and was told my eye had healed completely! I picked my contact up yesterday and it is soooo nice to be able to see again! I forgot how clear my vision used to be. Both my glasses and my contacts are fairly similar in prescription, so it will be easy for me to switch back and forth. I also upgraded to the shatter-resistant lenses to help protect my eye more. Grand total for eye exam, glasses and contact lens...$316! I just threw up in my mouth a little bit. Oh my, I hadn't realized it was that much (swallowing bile)...however, to make myself feel better, I haven't had to make any purchases for my vision in almost three years, and before that it was five years...so (stomach churning)...I guess I feel better? On top of that, I get to pay for a new shell in a couple of weeks! Yikes! I am so grateful for a good job.
Summer has Summed here in Wisconsin. It is hot and humid outside. It is currently 87 degrees outside with 55% humidity...blech! I know, I know. It will only get worse. However, let's just say that I am so thankful we have air conditioning! I've never really had to live in humidity before, last summer was pretty decent here, so we'll see how I do.
I was trying to think if there was anything else I had to write about and I can't think of anything other than I had a video I wanted to share. We were over at a friends' house a couple weeks ago and we watched this youtube video. I laughed so hard! It is one of those Japanese prank shows. I have NO IDEA how they get away with some of this stuff, but my personal favorite is "driving the porcelain train". The quality of the video is terrible, but oh-so-funny! Enjoy!
