quick update! there's no time!

here's the quick update about me. i live in aurora. i am the primary chorister at church. it is stressful and overwhelming at times. but i'm already attached to the kids, so what are you going to do? i work at stacy's hallmark. hired as seasonal but i'm being kept at part time. i just got hired at target to be in their deli and bakery. i'm pretty excited about that. i'm not excited about the math i did on how many hours i'll be working! but then i did the math on how much money i'll be making and i am willing to deal with it. matt's about to have his birthday and i'm about to have a pampered chef dinner show. so i've been busy with planning a lot of things, including a trip back to texas. i can taste the 44oz blue raspberry icee from toot-n-totum right now! i got a digital camera so i've been taking a lot more pictures. sadly for you i post them all on facebook. i don't know who the "you" is i'm referring to. i don't even know why i'm keeping up with this. that's pretty much it. oh, and if i do know you and you're reading this and you have your own blog post a comment so i can find you!
that's my update. if you read it fast enough i bet it would be under a minute!

blah life update

as most of you know, matt and i live in aurora, colorado. we have been trying to move here for years and having it actually happen is awesome! being here is amazing. being around the new people, the mountains, and snow, it's all great! the downfall is it's so dang expensive! after months and months of job searching i have 2 "part time" jobs that sometimes add up to maybe 20 hours. it's really hard. i feel so much pressure. if i was pulling my weight with a full time job we wouldn't have these problems. other then money things are great! we love our ward, everyone's so friendly! matt is working in a pharmacy which he's been trying to do for years. our apartment is the nicest place we've ever lived and we get a discount off rent for matt being awesome. it started snowing somewhat regularly in the middle of october. i can't think of a single thing i don't like about this place. maybe by next year we'll be able to enjoy all the fun things. once i get a real job... and by "real" i mean 36-40 hours. i would take anything as long as i work that much. well, that's pretty much it. that's aurora. once i get a real job and we make more money then we can do fun things and my stories will be more entertaining.

how will they know?

i was recently called to be the primary chorister. it's a little overwhelming. This is a large primary and every other time i've been in primary i've had the extra money to spend on visual aids and such. and all those times i was only a teacher, never with the whole primary at once. with those two things put together and adding that this primary is 2-3 times larger then any other i've ever dealt with. i know this calling is meant for me. for a few weeks before i really felt like i should be in primary. so i don't doubt the call, just myself a little bit. this song is one of my favorites. i can't hear it without welling up. i feel like this might help me through the tough times of my calling. hopefully i will rise to the call and fulfill it.

How will they know, the ones for whom we care,
That God is love and with us ev’rywhere,
That life is good, with blessings all can share?
How will they know unless we teach them so?

How will they learn that, though they go astray,
God will forgive and help them find the way?
How will they feel the Spirit day by day?
How will they know unless we teach them so?

How will they grow in wisdom and delight?
How will they choose to follow what is right?
How can they trust the future will be bright?
How will they know unless we show them?

How will they live when they at last are grown?
What will they give to children of their own?
Will they reflect the values we have shown?
How will they know, as on through life they go?
How will they know unless we strive to teach them so?

what did you think of the song?

happy birthday

last week i turned 24. not sure what i was expecting. i know that people always say that as you get older your birthdays just aren't as much fun. i thought they meant after kids and stuff. but matt was working. we were busy. money is tight. you know, grown up problems. they make birthdays less fun. but no matter how fun or not they still happen. so here i am, 24. growing up on to the days when birthdays don't matter.
