I've been a little reflective today, not sure why, just one of those days...
I started reading back in my journal and thinking about the last couple years and where my life is going etc. Most things I wouldn't change for the world, but there are a few things that I regret the way they turned out.
The biggest one is last year's labor day wedding thing. As I read through that I thought about how Britney still holds a grudge about it and it deeply saddened me. Reading it I still feel that what I said was completely honest from my point of view and feel totally justified in having said it. It helped me get my frustrations in the open and move on. I've been over it for almost a year now and really feel sorry for the whole thing. I'm really sad that because of it Dominic lost a friend. I'm absolutely heartbroken that she still thinks I said those things to purposely hurt her and make people hate her. I'm not that person. I truly, genuinely, loved Britney and was glad Dominic could be friends with her still, and I hate that I unintentionaly ruined all that. It makes me sick. I feel horrible that I made her feel that she could no longer be friends with Dom.
It's got me in a really depressed mood.
I don't know why I am so darn emotional today. I just feel like curling up in a ball and crying about something that I can't change.

On the bright side, my friend Maryann is coming over tomorrow. That should cheer me up. She is blessed with bring absolutely amazing and wonderful and I always feel better after seeing her.

My kid is super cute. He walks so well now, and he's getting so close to turning a year old it's scary! It doesn't seem like it's been that long. He sure has grown.

I made a cake!

I am very proud of the birthday cake I just made for Dominic and feel like sharing it, so I shall!

It is so cool in person! The dragon is standing on a bunch of plastic gold coins, and the "gems" are actually a cool set of dice I found for him. The blood around the dead body is raspberry filling!
Anyway... I thought it was cool!
I never get on here. I am like a little ghost.
Anyway. We took Ryan to the Library on saturday and he had a blast.
He fell down the stairs at Grammy's house on Sunday.
He ate super glue.
Did I mention he is a troublemaker.

In other news we got called to be primary teachers. We are team teaching with the lady upstairs. We are going to switch off every other week.

I have a dishwasher.

My washing machine still doesn't work.

My kid has two teeth.

Oh yeah, and he's walking.

Darn Kid.
Behold... My Future
  I will marry Dominic.  
  After a wild honeymoon, We will settle down in Salt Lake City in our fabulous House.  
  We will have 4 kid(s) together.  
  Our family will zoom around in a Red Mini-Van.
  I will spend my days as a Mom, and live happily ever after.  
whats your future

Pedestrians Don't Matter

So, I live in the most inconvient spot to be a pedestrian in the whole salt lake area right now. 
I live on 800 E.
900 E. and 1100 E. to the east are both closed to pedestrian access. They are the only ways over since the freeway runs right there.
700 E. and 500 E. to the west are both closed to pedestrian access. They too are the only ways north because of the freeway.
Therefore a trip that once was ten blocks round trip is now 30 blocks. Way to turn a little over a mile trip into nearly four miles. I have to walk almost four freaking miles to get to the freaking grocery store! You try doing that in this heat with a nine month old! Are you freaking kidding me? What the heck were you thinking?
And why is it that you have to close it to pedestrians, but you can still let motorists through? They have air conditioning and vehicles that travel more miles an hour than my little legs can carry me. Why do you choose to inconveinence those who walk everywhere more? 
So... Just cleaned out my camera and thought I would post some pictures of Ryan. These are from when he was about four months old, but they are so cute! I just had to share! I love my kid!

Ryan just stood! all by himself!!!! In the middle of the room!!!! Not holding on to anything!!! And he did it for about 25 seconds!!!
Yeah! I'm excited now! Not sure why, that just means he'll be walking soon and causing even more terror...
