Wow! I can't believe it's already March! I guess I spent most of January sick, and February blows by so quickly because it's so short . . . but March? And now we're halfway though no less. Goodness.
I realized this evening that I haven't blogged constantly for some time. Between spending 10 hour days at work, and trying to nuggle my cute husband at night I've gotten lost in enjoying my friends and families blogs, but totally bypassed my own. Now, with Rob off on a field trip to the Grand Canyon I figured I've got some time to jot a few things down.
First off, the world lost a great man on February 25th at 6:17 pm. Reid Nibley married my Aunt Nona just short of seven years ago, and although I didn't know him that well I looked up to him tremendously. He was an inspiring, sweet, kind man that made Nona light up. I've always looked to her for advice and she's always encouraged me to go on my next great adventure. I'm so happy she had him as a part of her life, even if it was for such a short time. He will be missed by me, his family, and the hundreds he taught over the years. Farewell Reid.
On a lighter note, my hair is getting really long! This is the longest it's been in about five years, and I'm actually still tolerating it. Rob told me the other day that it'd be cool if I wanted to get it cut short again like it was while we were dating, and I didn't feel compelled to go out RIGHT THEN and chop it off. It was a weird feeling.
Next, I can't make pancakes worth crap. Maybe I added too much water to the mix, or I'm cursed; maybe both. I've always had trouble getting pancakes to come out nice and fluffy like you would imagine them. Any suggestions?
Rob and I have been married for almost a year now. Our 11th monthaversary was last weekend, and we are so happy and absolutely loving being married. It's hard to imagine that one year ago I was picking up our wedding invitations and buying envelopes to send them out in. It was such a nice, sunny day. He makes me so happy. With him being away on a school field trip tonight will be our first night away from each other since being married. He's in Capitol Reef tonight, and will be at the Grand Canyon tomorrow. I've kept upbeat music on all day to try and keep my spirits up. I only wish he had cell phone reception out there so I could tell him goodnight and that I love him. I miss him so much!
Anyway. I better go get my bummies in bed. Goodnight.
