Life goes on...

...and I am a bit overwhelmed by it sometimes.

I know I haven't posted in a long while. The last day of tax season Jeff (and other employees; like maybe a fifth to a quarter of the total employees) got laid off. So I've been proofreading resumes, etc. as he searches for a new job.

We've been doing all the normal stuff, and trying to catch up on what got left behind during tax season. Tomorrow we are going to drop the kids at my mom's while we go to the laundromat and do scads of laundry.

Bridget has been super-cranky the last few days. I have a sore throat and icky nose, I wonder if she does too?

We are still trying to find a dentist who will work on Emma's teeth. We've been trying for a year. This last open enrollment we switched to a different dental plan, we still can't find someone who will see her sooner than six months from now. One tooth is almost gone it's so decayed (she has very soft teeth. We take good care of them but when her adult teeth come in I'm going to have them sealed. She just has like no enamel for some reason.) We did finally get an appointment for the renal imaging she needs done. I don't know how she's going to do with that, it's a shot and then she has to lay still for at least half an hour while they do multiple five minute series of images. Hmmm. I don't know how they expect a five year old to lie still in a strange place while nervous for that long with no sedation... We'll do our best though.

I did some water aerobics in the spa today. The girls (well Emma and Bridey) were in with me and copied. They thought it was fun. The neighbor kids thought we were insane, but I don't care; they're kind of rude kids a lot of the time anyway...

I got an awesome stroller, carrycot, and European infant seat (which will not be used to transport a child, of course, but is fun for the kids to put their dolls in in the house) last week and it's really nice. And it cost very little-- especially compared to the price I looked up for it!

I am super stoked for my class next week. I think I am just going to have a fantastic time!

We had the girls' birthday party. I'll post an account and pics when I get them off the camera; my mom took the box it was in home with her and we haven't got it yet.

So that's life right now... Hope you reading this are all well. :)

Sorry to hear about Jeff's job - and just after all the hard work of tax season!

That is too bad about Jeff's job. I hope that he is able to find something soon!

lol Tell her that is the American Fork Mount Timp temple.

We also have a new Draper one, another new one west of the Jordan River (it's Mount Okur, but it's spelled different), the Provo one, the Bountiful one, the Salt lake one is the best one for pictures though. With the reflecting pool. I photographed a wedding there in January. Manti I think is the most gorgeous one though, personally. Looks more like a castle than a temple.

The tulips are usually there from about mid April to mid May. :) There are several more entries of tulips pictures coming through June 6th. Including the Provo and Manti temples. We didn't make it to Salt lake this year before the tulips were gone.

However, if she wants to see flowers...Thanksgiving Point Gardens is the place to go. Any tulip pictures that weren't at temples were outside the gates, at the gardens. If you ever do make it here in April or May, try to go to the Tulip Festival.
