to do:

a couple hours ago my husband no-schelantly asked, what are your plans for today???



my reply:



"to read all of the blogs i haven't read since devon was born over 5 months ago!"



thankfully he just laughed.



i'm ambitious sometimes but i need a BREAK from all of this productivity! 



my lovely mum has taken dallin and anna AGAIN to sleep over and play for 24 hours so you would think i would be wisely using my time by tying up all of the loose ends around my house in upheaval before some guys in the elders quorum come to help load the big trailer today before the baby wakes up but instead.....



.....i'm eating my delicious sourdough bread slathered with my favorite kerry gold butter, while listening to "journey" on someone's lovely blog music list, and enjoying all of the blogs i haven't read for the past 5.5 months when i was living under a rock!






while looking at all of your blogs for several hours since last night, i've laughed out loud, cried, been touched by the holy spirit and reminded that i need to be a nice mommy, even if i am a bit stressed out!






thank you!



(ps...thank goodness my mom found the time to come again to help a bit as well as the young woman from our ward whom i bought some cleaning help from in a camp auction. justin is here to help as well. thank goodness. )







(pss....i also fancied what it would be like to up and do what this lady did....but i don't think we're THAT daring!)



(psss while making the rounds, i learned that many of your blogs became private. i would LOVE to still read, so please send an invite!)

It's been a little over a year since we moved and we moved from Bakersfield to Riverton, Ut. Which is just 15 min south of Salt Lake. I'll send you a facebook message with my address and phone number so if you decided to stop on by just give me a call. We have enough room on the side of our house for a trailer. My parents crashed their for a month in their RV last summer and plugged into our house. We would love to see you.

Glad you had a moment to kick back and relax! I really have got to get back on the blogging bandwagon! I miss it. And I'm interested how you got your kids to start drinking the green drink?
I'm so glad I got to see you yesterday... I am really going to miss you! Oh, you know what's lame? I brought a few items to your house yesterday to return to you, but then left them in the car! I will get them to you before you leave. :)

Now I know why you missed my pregnancy! You have a lot on your plate right now, so you have a pass to not read anything I may or may not write for the next 5 months.

Elizabeth said...

I miss you too Julie. I'm glad for modern technology to help keep us in touch though :)

We're so excited for you to find roots NOT in a desert! Please keep blogging so we know what you're up to.

I too am a little envious of your current opportunity! I would love to have the funds, because I think I have the guts to relocate to another country for a year or so! Someday I'll test that theory! :) I also think it would be a fabulous adventure to be gypsies for awhile too! I think the baby would have to be a bit older for either! I would love to get Byron and Justin together (me & you too)! Call me, and we'll have you over for lunch any day! I think you'll be in town a bit longer!
