Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope everyone has a very Happy Thanksgiving and enjoys the time with family! Today Jonathan and I are spending Thanksgiving with just the two of us. We celebrated last Sunday with my family and enjoyed the time there. I have to work a lot this week so we didn't really have time to drive to Dallas for today. It's kinda nice to be at home with just the two of us. We are going to decorate for Christmas, watch the Cowboy game, eat snack food, and just hang out together. It seems the last few months we haven't got to spend much time with each other so it's nice when a few days come along where both of us don't have to work. I'm loving my job but I'm ready for intern year to be over so I don't have to work as many nights/weekends. I know Jonathan is ready for that too. I feel really bad for him having to stay home by himself and the fact that we haven't really made friends here yet, nor have we found a church home. Ok, now for the things I'm thankful for this year:
1) Jonathan is in Temple with me
2) I have today off
3) My mom is healthy again
4) God has provided so many things for us this year
5) we are trying to start a family
6) Jonathan still has a job

Happy Thanksgiving!

Life is Full and Busy!

Life has been so busy lately it's not even funny. The month of November I am working the night shift in the ER which means I have to be at work at 6:55pm and get off at 7am. One of the major problems with this is that Jonathan doesn't get home from work until 6 or a little after. This leaves just enough time to eat dinner together and me to leave for work. Bummer. On Thursday Jonathan had 2 wisdom teeth removed and had off work on Friday. My mom and grandma came to visit on Saturday and stayed the night, they left this morning. It was nice to spend time with them. The last time I saw my mom she was still in the hospital about to be discharged. It was so nice to spend time with her like we used to. Shopping, cooking, talking, planning. I shared with her something that Jonathan are excited about but don't want to share with everyone yet. It's so great to be able to tell her secrets again, listen to her talk, and just know she is ok. One of the hardest parts of her being in the hospital and on the ventilator was that she couldn't talk. When she was on the ventilator it was almost like she wasn't even there. I could see her, but she couldn't talk, couldn't smile, couldn't laugh, couldn't acknowledge that we were there or that we had just told her we love her. Today I got to hug her, make her laugh, have real converstaions, and enjoy being with my mom. She is truly an amazing women. Life this week is going to be just as busy as last week.
