The Last Ten Months

Okay, yes, it has been quite a while since I've updated. It's mainly because I don't have internet access at my house, and am too lazy to drive to the nearest place that I do. Now I have the chance to do it, so I'm putting up another update.

Since my last post, I have gotten married. My husband and I were sealed in the Oakland Temple on July 1st, 2011.

We had our reception the next day and had a ring ceremony for family and close friends unable to attend the wedding. We had a laid back honeymoon at the coast, enjoying the cooler July weather. Jori and I have been married for nearly eight months now, and they have been the best months of my life, and I look forward to many more years with him.
When Jori moved in, he also brought with him his dog, Jake, an Australian Shephard/Black Lab mix. As most of you know, I have a cat, so we were a little worried about how they would get along. At first, Jake was scared of the cat and would be tearing through the house, trying to get away from her. After a while, they finally got to the point where they tolerated each other. Now though, we find them cuddling up with each other and being friendly, but once they notice us looking, it's back to ignoring each other.
As a Wedding present, my in-laws paid for a trip to Disneyland, so in September Jori and I got the chance to do that, and we had a blast. We stayed with my oldest sister and got to spend some time with her too while we were there.
In November, Jori and I had the opportunity to go to a Trans-Siberian Orchestra concert in Sacramento with my older sister and her friends. It. Was. Awesome! I totally want to go to the next one. They are so fun to watch. I can't imagine how hard it would be to be running across the stage while still playing.
Jori and I spent our first Thanksgiving with family, but we spent our first Christmas together. I made a small meal for us, which still lasted for a few days after, and I had my first try at making twice baked potatoes. Which are delicious! My mother-in-law gave me a box full of family recipes for a christmas present, which I have made a few dishes from, all of which are delicious, delicious!
Now finally we're in February. Jori and I just got back from another trip south to San Diego for his grandmother's 90th birthday. So I got to meet more in-laws, and get to know them. We had a lot of fun, and the day after the party, we went to the San Diego Zoo with Jori's Aunt and Uncle. So many animals! The best Zoo I've been to. My legs are still recuperating from walking up and down hills, and all around for eight hours.

Guess what!

I finally have something to post. I'm engaged! Jori and I are so excited. We are being sealed in the Oakland Temple July 1st. Yes, it's soon, but we've planned on getting married for a while. Plus, we had the date of the wedding before I got my ring. We were waiting to make it official once I had it. I absolutely love it! Definitely worth waiting for.

I've had an interesting week. First, on Saturday at work, I was cleaning a room and picked up a towel which happened to be covered in perfumed Talcum Powder. Not knowing this, I snapped it open and all the powder went all over the floor, me and into my lungs. Ten minutes later I couldn't even talk. After drinking a bunch of water, I told my boss what happened, finished work that day and went home. Next day, I go to church and after we sing the second hymn, I can't breathe. I tried to catch my breath but after the next hymn (which I had to play) I still couldn't breathe so Mom took me home and kept a close eye on me. I stayed downstairs where it was cold which helped the breathing. The Talcum Powder just tore up my throat and sinuses. THEN, Monday I didn't go to school because I knew I'd be completely out of breath after 20 steps or so. I went to the doctor, he said it wasn't so severe that I'd have to be hospitalized and was getting enough oxygen. Good news right? Well, the doc was feeling my throat when he says that my thyroid feels enlarged. The thyroid is pretty darn important so I go to the hospital to get a blood test and an ultrasound of my neck. Tuesday, I'm told by Mom that the Doctor called and said I had a BB size CYST on my thyroid. LUCKY ME! I guess the whole Talcum Powder thing was a blessing in disguise. The doctor said the cyst is nothing to worry about, but will be keeping an eye on it, just in case. I've realized, I'm only twenty, but I have the most health problems in my immediate family. Sigh.

Yes I know I haven't updated in a while. I've had quite the month. First school started, then my cat died, then I got a new kitty, then I had a killer chem test which I thought I failed, THEN I found out I barely passed, THEN my sister started bugging me about not updating. So I am now updating and yes, I do have pictures of the new kitten.

Her name is Whisper because her meow is so quiet. She purrs louder than she meows, it's kinda funny. I love her tabby stripes. She's part Siamese, but I don't know what the other is. I'm thinking Rag Doll. She's a real sweetie, and a total lap kitty. And, she enjoys watching the T.V., especially when we play games with colorful graphics.

I finally found a job! And I love it! I'm working at a local Hotel and store. On the first floor, they have what they call an Emporium and they sell the most gorgeous jewelry, soaps, clothes and other nick knacks. Oh, and I can't forget the truffles. They are soooo good. Yum. Anyway, the second floor is where the hotel rooms are. They are amazing! The theme for the rooms is basically Victorian. My favorite part of most of the rooms are the clawed tubs. Besides that, each and every room is unique and just beautiful. The whole place is just AWESOME! I love it!

Schools out!

I am done with my finals! Yay! They were super easy too. The only thing I had a difficult time with was the ten page Anthropology Essay that was due at the beginning of this month. Ugh, it fried my brain. I only got nine pages done before I had to print it out. I got an A- on it though! It was very well written.
There was a 5 page essay due for my Communications Final, which was sooooo much easier than the Anthropology one. For my Welding finals, I probably failed the lab final because my weld looked horrible. Of course I screwed it up on the day of the final, but never before when my grade wasn't relying on the first weld I did. Sigh. My teacher knows I can do better. The written final though was easy easy. And my art class had no final. Woot! Now it's time to find a summer job.

I finally finished the painting. I'm really happy how it turned out.
