catch up

Yes.  I have been a lousy blogger.  No.  I don't promise to get better, because let's face it--that is nothing more than an empty promise at this point.

Thinks have been moving along ever here in my life.  Maybe not moving along exactly how I would choose... but they have been moving along.

Tanner and I had our 2 year anniversary.  We didn't do anything big, but it was nice.  We went to dinner, a movie, and out for frozen yougurt afterwards.  It's crazy how time flies!  We've been married for 2 years and together for 3.  It doesn't seem like it's been that long.  3 years seems like less time than it used to.  I could go on and on about how wonderful Tanner is and how much I love him, but I won't.  Just know that I am so happy to have him in my life and to be his wife <3

We are settling into our new house.  I have been painting and decorating and making it feel like mine.  I like owning a house.  It helps me feel accomplished and independent.  The bad news is that 4 weeks ago some b@*%(#7 broke into our house.  We didn't take a whole lot: Gregron (my laptop of 4 years) and ny brand new ipod touch.  I have been trying to be greatful that he didn't take more, yet I can't seem to get past the fact that someone felt like it was okay to walk into my house, and take my things.  He did, however, leave his ID card on our bed, spit in our garbage can, and leave a beer can.  I thought with all that evidence the cops could have caught him by now, but they haven't.

In my younger years I wrote this list of things I wanted to do with my life: 
                 
                 1) go to beauty school
                 2) graduate high school
                 3) spend a semester abroad
                 4) go to college
                 5) get married
                 6) start a family
                 7) own a car
                 8) teach for a year of two

The good news is it's 7/8 of the way done.  The bad news is that I feel like I don't have as much direction as I have in the past.  My mom told me that I just need to focus on the kids of mother and wife I want to be and set goals for those things.  But that's tricky for me.  Those kinds of goals don't seem as measurable to me and I like to see results that are solid, black and white, yes or no.    So here is to my next phase of life; one with different kinds of goals.

I think you have accomplished lots!! I know me saying that though won't change the way you view it all. I am so sorry someone broke in though. I'd use a Bible swear word or two but I'm sure you've already thought them. Happy Anniversary late!
