Well, life has pretty much been work...among other randoms.

Work is of course kinda stressful right now, since it's tax season. It is EXTRA stressful because our software has been having major issues, which has caused us to be way behind...which will probably mean more work for me towards the end of tax season...which stinks. But that's okay. It'll all work out.

This week I majorly did NOT follow diet. My body felt like crap. I was reminded of why I shouldn't eat gluten or sugar, and should focus on putting good things in my body. It's just really clear that what goes in my body affects how I feel!

I haven't been working out for MONTHS. I injured my foot and just stayed off it till it stopped hurting which was basically this week. So in order to work back up to activeness, I walked Dante yesterday and today. Clay joined me today. It is SO BITTER COLD. But it still feels good. My friend has been trying to get me to play basketball with her on Weds nights at the stake center with some other women...but I've always been a bit nervous. I finally decided- I just need to do it! Even if I look like a's gotta have some benefit! The only crappy part is it's at like...9pm!

I'm feeling a little down lately about babies...but you know...what's new?

We played Settlers of Catan for the first time with our friends and it was SO FUN! Have you ever played that game? Clay and I loved it, we can't wait to play again. It took like...a year to figure out how to get started and how to play and everything- but once we figured it out, it was way fun!

The highlight of my week is Bachelor on Mondays. I know that's pathetic but it's just such a wonderful way to start the week. Mondays suck so bad, so it's just a nice way to get through it. I've decided that if I were to do a pushup or a situp everytime the following happened, I'd be ripped:

1. Sean tells a girl, "I'm crazy about you"
2. Sean tells a girl "You are so special"
3. Someone talks about this journey that they are on
4. Someone talks about someone else not being here for the right reasons
5. Sean and a girl go on an adventurous, scary date and compare it to the trials and journey of love, and if they can overcome this, they can overcome ANYTHING!
6. Tierra gives death eyes to someone
7. Tierra fakes an injury
8. Tierra evil laughs
9. Chris harrison says, "Ladies"
10. Someone cries
11. Sean and a girl ONLY talk about how great of a connection they have and how they feel so good about their relationship....but we never see how that connection could possibly be since this is the only conversation they've ever had...over and over and over
12. Sean says, "This is the hardest decision I've ever had to make yet"
13. Someone says, "This is the perfect place to fall inlove"

I mean really...those things will all happen at least like...6 times. So talk about a great workout! Maybe I'll do it tomorrow and report how many I ended up doing.

That's pretty much all I can think of! Pretty boring. But I figured I better report something. Till next time!



oh my gosh i was in love with this blog. THe bachelor review... pahahah hilarious. you know I couldn't agree more. I think my favorite is how they talk about what a great connection they have even though we've never seen how they got that connection, or where or when it happened? haha. i love it. work sounds so stressful. It's like you have this SLOWW YR, and then bam crazy stress. I'm sorry about the baby blues. Working out- I can't believe you go out in that crazy cold weather! YOU ARE AMAZING! You are seriously one of hte most inspiring people in my life. i love you.

I think you are truly brave to go out into the cold to walk with Dante. I can't even walk much in sunny weather, so do it while you can, even if it is hard. I am so sorry about the baby blues, it must be so hard for you. We pray for you to be able to soon, but it isn't any fun waiting around. It is hard to have patience and wait upon the Lord. That is what we learned about today in all of our classes and Sacrament. Getting and having the spirit and listening for it. I love you so much Danielle and you are such a wonderful person, and I know it is probably the hardest thing you have to do, but we are all learning from this. Heavenly Father says there is a reason for all things, but sometimes it is hard to figure it all out. For the life of me I don't know what else you are supposed to do or know, as your grandmother I think YOU are PERFECT. Unfortunatly it is not within my power to be able to grant you what you want, I would if it were possible. Just remember how special and wonderful you are. Love you so much

I have such a love hate relationship with the bachelor.... Same old, same old--- but I can't look away. Thanks for the laugh!

Ok, bachelor. Seriously funny what you said. You are so righht. It is RIDICULOUS. He's kind of annoying. Bachelor's such a love hate. If I have nothing to do or are EXHAUSTED, then I love it. If not it basically means I'm ignoring my kids or being lazy and then I dont feel good afterwards. I feel depressed. It's just too much time for me, sometimes. You are SO RIGHT about the connection thing. It drives me CRAZY!!!! And how they all call him their boyfriend? Even the ones who haven't been on a date???

Sorry about the babies. I used to always say, "I know how you feel, I waited a long time too." I can't say that anymore. That line has passed a LONG time ago. I'm so sorry you have had to wait this long and have to just keep going. You will have your babies. You will love them. They will love you. It will be worth the heart ache to get there. I love you.

I'm so sorry about your diet!!! I've been wanting to talk to you about Scarlet's. We've totally been cheating on her diet and she's been doing awesome! I sort of wanted to test the waters, y'know. But maybe now we should back off again incase it IS making a difference and we're just making it harder for her body to fight back. I don't know. Yeah, I think that's what I'm gonna do.

Sorry about work. That is extra stinky. Hope it all resolves itself soon. I LOVE YOU!!!! Hang on to the happiness!!! Maybe get a blessing????

So sad about work! And eating, I could write a book about that! The baby part, it will come, but I know that doesn't help! I think we have down weeks and thankfully we finally pull out of them. I always have a harder time when it is stressful. Make sure you are doing the basics, scriptures and prayers, then you will at least have that help. Love you soooo much, wish we could see each other more often.

Hey Girl,
I don't know what happened but we never talked that day about Lyme. But hey if you have any great resources, sites, doctors ect, and have time to e-mail them to me, heatheraconger at gmail dot com then I can just forward the info to her. Also I was trying to go gluten and sugar free for tummy troubles and wanted to try some of your recipes but then I started looking through your recipes and jumped ship because I just want to make all of them, haha.
