1. Clay and I have gotten in a rut of just kinda watching tv and that's it. We've made a goal to DO more stuff together. Play games, adventures, spending time with friends, etc. We are young! No kids! Finally feeling a bit better! Time to live.
2. Clay's liver and kidney's are struggling a lot. He's been on a LOT of antibiotics for over 2 years and it seems to have finally caught up with him. We will be doing things to try and help detoxify and help boost them back up but in the meantime, if you are willing to pray for him...it'd be great! He's actually suffering quite a bit with some pain because of it and is unable to take his pills until he's feeling better. So please pray for my husbands liver and kidneys!
3. My sister showed me how to make yogurt, and I made yogurt again, and I'm obsessed. I love it.
4. I've read/heard the President is likely to use his executive power to ban assault rifles and high volume clips among other things. I used to think a lot like many people and though, "GOOD! We don't need those guns! There's no reason!" But then after reading, talking, hearing more thoughts from lots of different people...I thought a lot about it and decided...actually? There was a reason the forefathers made an amendment specifically for the right to bear arms. The government has SO much power. It's getting more each and every day. It's important that we have the ability to protect ourselves from the government. Even though an assault rifle probably wouldn't stand a chance next to all the machinery the government has in its hands. Point is, guns don't kill people and commit crimes. People do. Bottom line. If we take away guns we may as well take away cars, alcohol, knifes, fire, water, hands, poison, and everything else in this life. If someone wants to commit a crime, they will find a way. I also just feel that the PEOPLE should have every right that the GOVERNMENT has. There are too many things happening these days that are taking away rights from the people, and building up the strength of the government. It's not good.
5. Despite lots of craziness, and stresses, life is good. House, food, cars, clothes, water, family, God, Christ, Holy Ghost. What more do you really need?
6. I have basically not done my goals at all. It's okay. I am still hoping to be doing them. But I am definitely re-evaluating what's most important.
7. I made 100% quinoa flour waffles yesterday. They were great! The recipe claimed you can freeze them and then pop them in the toaster later. I'm excited to try it.
8. I am going to try and make more new recipes. I'm hopeful I could make a new recipe per week. But that sounds intimidating. We'll see.
That's all for now! I could also tell you about the time I said in Sunday school that I thought marijuana should be legalized...and how at the relief society activity last night I talked to my table all about the documentary, "The business of being born", and the controversies of epidural, hospitals, etc...but I'm afraid to make even more people think I'm a crazy Oregonian girl. Seriously, I often start talking...and then my brain is like, "WHAT ARE YOU DOING- ABORT! ABORT MISSION!" cause I see the faces on those around me and see that they simply aren't interested and therefore think I'm a bit psycho. I can also get a bit passionate about things...it's in my Arnold blood...and so that sometimes doesn't help the situation!
