Out of luck

So far this week, I've learned that I can only ask for so much. I'll admit, I'm a little jealous of James' job. Since he got his new position last year he's got to go to some cool places. Virginia, I think, California a couple times, Ohio, Wisconsin,and Indiana. We are still planning the trip to England and I got to go with him to Ohio. I was so happy to see my family there! But now, he's probably going to go to Korea too! Within the next month!! Oh how I yearn to go! I got online and found the Seoul, Korea temple. He'll probably be in that area. It's so beautiful! And the buildings there are so amazing! I want to go. But alas, I'm out of luck. I can't go on all the trips. I wish S&S would send me with him on each of them. If they would just pay my plane ticket too, I'd cover everything else. But I guess that's a pipe dream. I'm so excited for these experiences for him. Still a bit jealous.

I finally completed my reading of the Twilight saga!! I'm very happy, but sad at the same time. I just didn't want it to end. I guess I'll just have to find something new. I really enjoyed it. I'm glad that it took me a long time to read it. I was able to read about a chapter or so a day and didn't neglect my loving husband too much. I'm so grateful for our true eternal relationship. I could not ask for a more loving, kind and gentle companion. He will always be my "Edward!"

Time Out For Women

I went to my very first Time Out For Women conference yesterday. I've made a new friend at church. Her name is Cory McKee. She is so super cute! She came from a little town by Vernal, UT, and is so excited to be here in Logan now. There's civilization here! I really enjoy having her here as well. she is such a good example to me. she has such a strong testimony of the gospel and is not afraid to share it. I love that. I think I used to be that way, but I'm a little more shy now.

Anyway, the speakers were amazing. The conference was about finding joy and happiness in our lives. I'm a pretty happy person. Life is good! I took some notes, but I don't have them right by me. This was not talked about at all in the conference, but I think I'm going to do much better to write in a journal. I think it would be something that would make me happy. So we will see. I'm sure going to try it though. We were also uplifted with the musical talents of Kenneth Cope. It was just wonderful.

Even though it was such a wonderful, uplifting experience I was glad to come home. I missed my James. He's my favorite and I just wanted to be with him.

This is Cory and me once we found a place to sit.

This was the stage and some of the speakers.

Cory's AMAZING!! She wouldn't leave until she got pictures with the presenters.

This me with Sharon G Larsen. She is the author of "All Rain, No Mud." That book helped lighten my days during my divorce. Just uplifted me. Too bad I didn't realize was I was getting into. I would have brought it with me for her to sign!

I just don't feel like it!

So I've been neglecting the blog. I'm bad. I've indulged myself into Breaking Dawn. I'm really enjoying myself. So I haven't felt like blogging. And I'm a really slow reader. I like to read it slow and take it all in. I'm only getting through about 1 or 2 chapters a day. It's what I do with my free time. So, until I'm finished. . . see ya! (I'll get there quick)
