A whole year!

I can't even believe that we have been married a year! Wow how time flies when you are trying to figure out what you are going to do with your life. You know the quote "Life is what happens when you are busy making plans"? Well that is how I feel things are going. Ben started school last week and it seems to be going really well. If only I didn't have to deal with all the financialaid run-a-round I have had to be dealing with. Thomas id growing like a week and has started sitting up, eating rice cereal and bitter biscuits, and screaming because his teeth are coming in. And Ben and I will be getting sealed in the Temple this Saturday. I am having a hard time because most of the family won't be there. I will have Mandy and Elizabeth and Allen. And that is all the family that is coming.  We are sad that Amy and Jake ended up having to leave earlier then expected and Brady has a big convention he has to be at. I wish I had put the call out sooner and then maybe some of the extended family could have come but alas I don't feel like I can get on the ball at all. We are also supposed to be moving into our new apartment on Wednesday and I feel like I am trapped in a tornado of emotions as we also try to help Matt with is issues. He is doing really well and has started a new job but has now been kicked out of his apartment and will have to find a new place again. All this makes me feel like saying we will just wait a little bit and then more family can be here and I can feel more.............prepared. But then Ben puts his arms around me and reminds me that this is for our little family and that we need to do this now, life can change in a blink of an eye (as we all know so well) and we need to be an eternal family. My husband is a great man and I am so thankful every day for him. Well I know this has been a little scrambled but considering that is how I am feeling right now so I guess that is okay.

Meggie... I'm so sad we won't be there!!! I tried calling this weekend (for a few minutes on Saturday I was all freaked out cause I thought THAT was the day you were getting sealed... Then I calmed down when I realized I was a week early...) but you didn't answer.

I'm glad Ben's school is going well. Really it will all be worth the hassle and frustration and stress you are going through. IT WILL!! Please, please, please give Thomas a hug for me!! Love you lots!!

Megan-
Your husband must be a "gem" if he is calm and ready to enter the temple. He's right about not worrying if family will be there :) We'll be there in spirit cousin! (Congratulations!!)
