Love Being Pregnant, Hate Being Pregnant

Well, well, well, what a month! So excited to be pregnant again but I have been SOOOO nauseated, heart-burned, and sleepless for almost a month and it is killing me! I decided to go ahead and finish school and get my degree because I really wanted to finish something for once in my life, the right way. So, my plan is to get my Associates degree in Accounting in May, have the Baby in September and then see how things go from there. While social work is something I really want to pursue, I may put it off until both kids are in school. Besides, I can't really help other peoples kids until I get mine on the right track, right? Anyway, I am working part-time just to help with the bills and then when the baby comes I will probably stay home for a few months and take care of the kids. We still go to church, but Justin has kinda lost some enthusiasm for it. We did have the missionaries over a few weeks ago and watched the story of Joseph Smith, and it was really neat. I even learned stuff that I didn't know! It's funny, because although I went to church throughout my ehole childhood, I don't know that I ever really paid attention. Everything I am reading about now sounds familiar, but yet new to me. Weird. Anyway, Ryan still won't go to Primary by himself-completely shy around everyone there-which is odd because he is so social most of the time. I am sure in time he will warm up to everyone. I find it funny almost every Sunday, someone in Gospel Doctrine tells me that he can go to Sunbeams, and I am like, I know, I tried, he is just not comfortable enough to go in there alone. Anyway, just trying to get through each day, hopefully the next day is better than today.

Christmas with The Canadians and Kentuckians

We had a great Christmas this year, as Tonnia and Andrew and the kids got to come down from Canada and Kathy and Rob and their kids came down from Kentucky! Our house was completely packed with a total of 14 people on Christmas including Justin's Mom and Sister! While overwhelming at times, we had alot of good laughs and a good time with family. That is really all there is to live for, to be with your family and enjoy the time we have together!! We also found out while Tonnia and Kathy were here that I am pregnant!!! I am trying not to get too excited yet, because it is really early, and I just had a miscarriage 3 months ago, but we are praying for a little girl!! If not this time around, we will give it one more shot!! I have also made some changes in my life that will hopefully be for the better. I have decided to pursue a degree in social work as opposed to accounting, because it feels like a better opportunity for me. So, along with this goal I have to decided to take online classes and be a stay at home mom for awhile. I hope we can make it work because it feels like the right decision. Anyway, lots of new changes this year but we are looking forward to the future!!!
