My new favorite thing to eat is cocoa flavored almonds, from Sam's Club. So good. It is supposed to be keeping me away from chocolate, but I'm not sure if eating 30 a day is accomplishing much good.
I keep getting a dumb charlie horse-type cramp in my right foot. It is really annoying. I don't know if it is from running up all of the insane hills in my neighborhood, walking on wood floors all day in my bare feet, not eating enough bananas, or just getting the aches and pains that come with approaching 30.
I spent a total of about 2 1/2 hours mowing our lawn and pulling weeds the last two days. Today the dandelions have already emerged. Ahhhhh! Weeds are so annoying.
Cloey is turning four tomorrow. Talk about growing like a weed. It seems like just yesterday I was in labor for 72 hours, not progressing but in a lot of pain. I just don't know if I ever would've had any children if I'd lived in the days before patossin (sp?).
Yesterday Katelund didn't have school. So we went to a playgroup at the park in the morning and then a dollar movie in the afternoon. We had a lot of fun. The majority of Kate's new friends are boys. There must be something in the water here b/c her kindergarten and primary class are majority boys. In fact, in kindergarten there are only 7 girls out of 20. I'm really hoping there is something in the water I'll be drinking because I'm getting so baby hungry for a little boy. My year mark is almost up (the doctor said I had to wait a year to let my body recover).
My mom just bought an airline ticket to come and see us and our new house. I'm so excited!!!! She is also going to drive to Columbia, SC with me to go to Time Out for Women. I can hardly wait. It is also an extra incentive to get the rest of the boxes unpacked in the basement.
I'm sure most of you are familiar with this quote by Joseph Smith, but I heard it the other day on my podcast and it just gave me chills all over. I've been thinking about it ever since.
"...the standard of truth has been erected; No unhallowed hand can stop the work from progressing; persecutions may rage, mobs may combine, armies may assemble, calumny may defame, but the truth of God will go forth boldly, nobly, and independent, till it has penetrated every continent, visited every clime, swept every country, and sounded in every ear, till the purposes of God shall be accomplished, and the great Jehovah shall say the work is done."
