Compounds

First of all, I hate moving because it is so much stinkin' work! We've lived in 3 different apartments in Cedar City, but none of those moves were as hard as this one. Probably because we could just load up the car and take everything to the new place in 5 or 6 carloads. Now I have to consolidate everything to fit into an overpriced moving van. As if moving to another state in a week in a half weren't enough, I have to throw my high school 5 year reunion. I remember when I ran for senior class president and made it that my mom informed me I would be doing reunions for the rest of my life. I remember saying, "It's okay mom, I love parties!" What was wrong with me? This is such a hassle and I don't feel ready. Now I'm having some personal health problems that are just getting in the way of my crazy life. I found out I have an 8 cm ovarian cyst and that I had an early miscarriage. I don't have time for this!!! This is a little bit of a complaining post, but I really am so extremely blessed to have the help I do. I'm grateful for the priesthood in my home and that I have a worthy husband who can give me blessings. I'm grateful for my family and my in-laws who are always looking out for me and doing little acts of service. I'm grateful for friends who let me escape and have a fun filled with them (thanks Meg!). I really have been blessed more than I deserve. So the pains and trials compound, but so do the blessings. I think they come in packages and are meant to open our eyes to all that is wonderful in this life. Thank you all for your prayers and friendship. You will be missed!

July came flying didn't it! I can't believe we are moving in only a week and a half. Good luck with all the packing! I only have one more room to go and we will be completely packed!!! YAY! I never knew we owned so much junk!!! Hope everything goes well for you. Let us know if there is anything we can do to help!

Oh, we sure miss you guys! It makes me even MORE sad to know that you are moving away from the place next to our old place. I know that is probably silly. We are excited for your new adventures with pharmacy school though!!! I wish so badly I could be there for and with you now, to help and do whatever. You were there for me in one of my very stressful hard times! I hope you have someone like you were there for me! You are in our prayers! Good luck with everything!

Wow, sounds like life has been pretty crazy for you. Moving to another state is hard enough without all the other stuff you've had going on. I'm so sorry you've been having health problems too. Good luck with everything coming up!

(and i was jr. class president, but didn't run for sr. class prez for that one reason. i really can't imagine how much work that must be!!)
