It's a Miracle

OkAY, can't believe it, but a miracle happened, yes they found my lap top at the DO. Okay I am calm. Anyway, I cut nine inches off of my hair and dyed it yesterday... whoa! I think it is a drastic change. I would post pictures, but I hate pictures of myself.

Colby is finishing up the last steps in the hiring "process" of becoming a cop. This has been the most intense couple of months for us. I don't think I have ever prayed so much in my life. The scariest thing is I know it is only the beginning, I will continue to pray 25 times a day (or more) for the rest of my life. One thing is for sure, I have become close to my Heavenly Father.

Please keep us in your prayers as Colby continues to go through this process. Hope all is well for everyone.

Freakin' Out!

Over the weekend I noticed that my laptop was missing. I prayed all weekend for a miracle and woke up first thing this morning to call the DO. No luck. No one turned in my laptop and I have to go in and see my princpal today. I am really upset and thought for sure someone seen it and turned it in. My last night of school was Thursday night and I remember loading my stuff in it, but I can't remember if I rolled it out to the car. Anyhow, it is gone and I am trying to remain calm and positive! I can't wait for work to start and I can get my life back in order. Please pray that someone saw it and is going to turn it in.

Turning 30!

Well, yes I am 30 years old now, and I can say that I don't feel any different. I think that everyone pays too much attention to age. It wasn't that big of deal, and it just gave me an excuse to buy myself something. With that being said, I finally bought Bare Minerals. I am not sure if anyone else uses it, but I have been curious about it and had my face done Friday night. I was so impressed, that I bought the kit. I have been experimenting with it, so my makeup has been just a little freakish! My friend Bethany even noticed and said that my face looked different. I took it in a positive way because if anyone knows Bethany, she would have told me I looked weird. I like it a lot and it is really easy to use. I hate powder, and never use powder, so I was a little hesitant. Anyway, if you have wondered about it, call me and I can give you the low down on the product! Talk to you later!

School is supposed to be out for SUMMER!

Ok, so I am trying so hard not to be negative. My friend Rejili lectured me for hours about having a positve attitude, but I have to tell you how much I am so feakin' sick of school. I haven't had a summer off since 2003. Yeah, think about how long ago that was. I have been in school and enrolled in every semester including summer since January of 2004. This is really becoming a sickening thing. (Is sickening a word? That is why I teach math :)
Having a positive attitude does work (in addition to prayers). Colby passed his polygraph yesterday for the Phoenix Police Department. We are so excited... not sure what the next step is, but we are already focusing on the Police Academy (Rejili, we are picturing it in our heads). Please keep us in your prayers and thoughts.
Anyway, this is my last day being twenty something. I told Colby that he has one more day to enjoy with his 29 year old wife, because tomorrow he is married to an old hag. I can't believe that I am the big 30, and to top it off I am going to the dentist to get 3 crowns put on... wow I am freakin' old.
But, on a positive note, I hear that 30 is the new 20. Right? Well look out 30's because I rocked my 20's! I had 4 kids, got a bachelors and started grad school. I will begin my 30's by graduating with a Masters, I am kind of scarying myself. I am new to this blog thing, but I think it is starting to make me a little conceited. Ha!

Girls camp 2008

I just got back from girls camp late Sunday night. Wow, what an experience. I was entertained all weekend by Edna, Jaqui, Nikkel, Jackie Lee, Becky, Tobie, and Cindy. We were quite the crew. We had a blast staying up late and laughing until our guts hurt. I don't think that I have ever laughed the way I did this past weekend. Edna was so hystarical. One of the best quotes from her this weekend after someone told her that she was going to hell, "I have to, that is where all of my friends and family are going to be." She was so funny. We did a lot of reminiscing with each other, we made some confessions too, right Tobie? We not only had fun, but I was feed spiritually. The sacrament meeting was absolutely amazing. I will never forget the spirit that was there that morning, it makes me teary eyed just thinking about it.
