Waiting at the airport!

Well, I unexpectedly ended up going to one of my best friend's wedding. Well, it's tomorrow morning. I am in Phoenix right now waiting to board. We were about to board but then they said that there was a maintenance issue with the plane, so now I'm stuck sitting on the floor waiting for the plane to either be fixed or for them to switch planes...ugggghhh. Sometimes I hate flying. It's even more annoying when there's nobody with me. So, I thought I would complain to whoever looks at my blog today. Well, I don't want to be on the internet for too long because this is an unsecured network (I don't really know what that means, but I'm not going to take any chances on something happening to my new laptop) Oh yea, remind me later to tell you about the drama with my new laptop. Thanks! Talk to you later! Hope everything is going well with you!

!!!!!!!WARNING!!!!!!!!

WELL, I REALLY DON'T KNOW WHAT TO SAY. WE HAVE SORT OF BEEN BAD. WELL, NOT REALLY. LET ME JUST EXPLAIN. AT CHURCH, WE HAVE BEEN AVOIDING THE BISHOPRIC TRYING NOT TO GET THE CALLING. WE KNEW IT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN AT SOME POINT BUT IT'S KIND OF NICE BEING ABLE TO GO TO ALL OF THE MEETINGS WITHOUT ANY RESPONSIBILITY. ANYWAY, IT HAPPENED. TODAY, WE WERE EATING DINNER AND WE GET A KNOCK ON THE DOOR. GUESS WHO IT WAS, THE FIRST COUNSELOR. HE DIDN'T HAVE OUR NUMBER, SO HE JUST HAD TO SHOW UP. AS SOON AS I SAW HIS FACE, I KNEW WHAT HE WAS THERE FOR. WELL, HE SAID AT FIRST THAT PART OF THE REASON HE WAS THERE WAS TO GET OUR NUMBER, BECAUSE HE DIDN'T HAVE IT. THE SECOND REASON HE WAS THERE WAS TO, GIVE US A CALLING...BIG SURPRISE, HUH!?! ANYWAY, WE ARE IN THE NURSERY TOGETHER. NOW, AS MUCH AS I LOVED MY CALLING IN THE PRIMARY AND SEEING THE KIDS EACH WEEK, I WAS REALLY HOPING THAT I WOULDN'T GET A CALLING IN THE NURSERY/PRIMARY BECAUSE I WAS WANTING TO HAVE TIME TO MEET PEOPLE IN MY NEW WARD. IT ALWAYS SEEMS SO HARD TO MEET PEOPLE WHEN YOU'RE IN THE PRIMARY. BUT I AM EXCITED TO WORK SO CLOSELY WITH KIDS. JOSH IS EXCITED TO PLAY WITH THE TOYS...HE EVEN ASKED THE FIRST COUNSELOR (I DON'T REMEMBER HIS NAME) TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY STILL HAD "PLAY TIME".

I MUST SAY, THE MAJORITY OF OUR MARRIAGE WE HAVE BEEN IN THE PRIMARY TOGETHER. EITHER THE LORD THINKS WE NEED TO BE WITH EACHOTHER MORE OFTEN, OR HE'S GETTING US READY FOR KIDS...LOT OF KIDS. WELL, WHATEVER THE REASON IS, IT'S SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN, RIGHT? WELL, I JUST THOUGHT I WOULD LET EVERYONE KNOW WHAT OUR NEW CALLING WAS.

WE ARE EXCITED ABOUT MEETING NEW KIDS!

So I need your help!

Well, I have really been hating my new job!!!! I really just don't like the atmosphere. Anyway, I was posting my washer and dryer on Craigslist (which I already sold, just in case you were wondering) and I decided to look up jobs. I found a lady that was looking for someone to do her housework/occasional babysitting for $20 an hour. I was really interested, so I emailed her.

Anyway, I met with her today, and she has such a cute family and she was so sweet, so I am even more attached to the thought of getting/having this job. Please pray that this will work out for me.

There will be so many benefits from it. Do you want to know what they are?

  1. I will have more time with my husband, which doesn't happen too often. We usually have the opposite hours, which means we see each other every Sunday and that's pretty much it.
  2. I will have the time to focus on my school work which would be great! Practicing on my machine=graduating school faster, which we all know would be nice.
  3. I will have time to cook! Which I really like to do if I'm not rushed. And I'm sure Josh would appreciate not coming home and eating frozen pizzas every night!
  4. I will get to be around kids, which I love. They have a 4 year old little girl named Abigail and then 16 month twin girls named Celeste and Caroline! They are so cute.
  5. I will get home at a decent hour.
  6. I will get to work in an environment that isn't all about alcohol sales.
  7. I won't have to be around people that are dealing drugs at work...they think I don't know, but I'm not stupid.
  8. I will get to go to the church activities like enrichment night and anything else they throw our way. I don't have a calling yet, but when I get one, I will actually be able to have one that requires time outside of church too, which would be exciting!

These are a few reasons why I really hope it works out! Please pray for it to work out the way it's supposed to! Thank you so much!

Really!?! Sometimes I just LOVE being a girl ;)




So, I pretty much had my most embarassing moment today. Well, I don't really know if it would be considered that embarassing, it's more of just a funny story today. Either way, here it goes:




So, I'm standing at a table today greeting them. I say, "hello, my name is Brooke. I will be taking care of you today." Now, I am saying that while I am reaching in my pocket so I can get my pen out to write down their drink order. Little did I know what was going to happen next. I pull out a pen, and what flies out of my pocket...yes, you guessed it! A TAMPON. Now, this is not any ordinary tampon. I always carry a tampon in my apron just in case I need it, or someone else needs it. I buy those "travel size" ones so that I don't have to have a huge one in my pocket. Well, the ones that I have are in a green wrapper, and the tampon itself is also green. Well, it wouldn't have been so embarassing if it would have come out in the wrapper, but the stupid tampon decided it would be funny to jump out of my pocket without a wrapper on...how does that happen? How does a tampon just all of a sudden decide to unwrap, and then on top of that, jump out of your pocket?




Anyway, I thought you guys would get a hoot out of that. You'll probably also get a hoot out of me saying "get a hoot". Hope everyone's doing well!


P.S. What does it say when I open up the tampax website?
TAMPAX-MADE TO GO UNNOTICED.
Really? because I will beg to differ!

I got tagged...thanks Tonia!

3 Joys:
My husband
The Gospel
Teancum...my cat...even though he has been missing for the last week and a half...I am soooooo sad, but when he's around, he brings me and Josh so much joy. He's like our kid...I miss him.

3 Fears:
Just like Tonia, becoming a widow
Spiders
Not being able to start a family.

3 Obsessions/Collections:
Skirts
Pots (Josh and I have a collection of them from different parts of the world.)
Decorating my house

3 Surprising Facts:
So, I'm pretty much the exact opposite of Tonia with this one, but I only shave my legs once a week, on Sunday morning, since I am going to be wearing a skirt. My poor husband.
Josh and I knew each other for two weeks before we said I love you, and then we were engaged 2 months later, and then married 6 months after that!
I love melting chocolate chips in the microwave and then eating it with a spoon...am I weird?

Okay, Camie, Erin, and Tracie, go!
