We did it!!

It took us 2 years and a lot of trials, but we have done it. Todd and I were sealed in the Temple on Wednesday March 25!!! It was very overwhelming and beautiful. We are so happy to know that we will be together forever and to be able to have Kayl with us forever. Thank you everyone for your support throughout these past years. We are glad to have you in our lives!!!

Todds new blog!

Todd made a blog last night. He is an amazing poet so he started a poetry blog. For the longest time we have wanted to get his poems published but have not had any money for it so we thought it would be better just to make a blog, then get some feedback so we can publish only the ones people think are really good. I'm biased and I love them all. The link to his blog is on the side of my blog. Leave comments and tell him what you think!!

They actually listened!

I used to get Strep Throat 2-3 times a year and whenever I would go to the doctors to get it checked out they kept telling me, "Oh, we'll take them out next time you get Strep."
Well, seven years later, I went to Dr. Pratte because I was scared that my Thyroid cycst had grown again and that they would need to take it out. He sent me back to Dr, Maturlo and she did a ultrasound on my neck and found that my cyst was still there but it was so small that it was not causing my choking or ability not to swallow. She was concerned because she didn't find anything so she looked in my mouth and found that my Tonsils were huge. She immediatly made an appointment for me to see Dr. Riddle.
On Monday, I went to his office. He gave me an exam and took one look at my tonsils and told me that they really needed to come out. The problem is that I am at very high risk for surgery due to the fact that I have Sleep Apnea. I'm terrified but I know that I'll be okay.
After I get my tonsils out on the 3 of April they will do a sleep study a month after to get the severity of the Apnea. If it is as bad as he thinks it is, I will have to wear a CPAP mask to bed every night. I'm just glad to be finally getting my tonsils out because whenever I get sick my Lymphnodes swell up and push my tonsils and makes it impossible for me to eat and breath.

Gone Private

As some people may have noticed I went private. Nancy, I know your sister likes to read my blog and so does your mom I would love for them to continue. If they want to let me know and I'll add them to the list. I'll need their e-mail addresses.

Love everyone but this is for the best.


*Disclaimer* There will be a little bad language in this post. I'm sorry.

Today, I go to work and I'm all excited because I really love my job. When I get there I clock in, request two days off, seat a customer and grab menus. Then my manager pulls me aside and tells me that she has had a few complaints from a server that I am not wearing deodorant and that I smell. WHAT!?!?! She then told me that she needed to send me home.

I take two showers a day, wear deodorant, and body spray. Who would be saying this about me? I then looked around Iggy's to see if I could spot anyone looking at me. That's when I saw that server who hates me and he was smiling all mean like and doing a little wave.

The reason why he hates me started about 2 weeks ago when he came up to the hostess stand and told me how to do my job. I told him to tell a manager and have the manager tell me because that is how I was trained. He got all butt hurt and walked off. I then told a manager what he had said and done and the manager told me that he would take care of it. I thought, Okay that's the end of that. Nope.

Last Friday was crazy busy like all Fridays are. I was running around bussing tables, and seating people as fast as I could. I was walking by his section and he steps in front of me and tells me not to seat his tables anymore because he wanted to go home. I told him that i couldn't do that and I tried to walk off. He stepped in front of me again and told me not to seat his tables and again I said I couldn't do that. Then it happened, in front of his customers he said to me "You are such an Asshole!" Then stepped on my foot and stormed off. I went straight to the manager and told her what had happened. She immediatly told him to do his sidework and then go to her office. I just went about doing my normal stuff and forgetting everything that had happened until today.

After she told me that she didn't want to send me home and that she was sorry I left Iggy's in tears knowing that I only have one shift this week because of him. He screwed me over. I feel so miserable right now. I am the nicest person at work and I only tell the managers if I need to. What he did was uncalled for and it made me so upset. I love my job and I don't want to quit but if this guy doesn't leave me alone I may have to so I don't go insane.

I'm sorry everyone, I just need to vent and I need advice. This is so hard on me.

Kayl is so close to walking it is crazy. We actually barley hold him up, he leads us. I just hope he starts doing it on his own soon.

Chocolate Hitler!!

Kayl is a chocolate nazi!! Really he is a chocolate Hitler!!

Another Spider Prank

Nancy's post about her teasing Rachel with a fake spider brought back a fantastic memory that I thought I would share with you.
Now, Sarah and I didn't always get along when we were younger and this particular day she had annoyed me so much that I was wanting to get revenge on her so bad. I know that Sarah is terrified of spiders and I had a huge rubber black and yellow spider in my hope chest. I waited until Sarah was halfway asleep and then I creeped into her bedroom and placed the spider ever so gently next to her head. I then proceeded out of her room.
I was in my room next door and I heard a huge scream about 2 minutes later. Sarah had woken up to a huge spider next to her head. I went in and took it back to my room. Ten minutes later she was halfway asleep again and this time a placed in on her chest. I left the room and she woke up 5 minutes later screaming. I got her two more times that night. Sad thing is, I have no idea where my spider is now.
