i'm not quite sure where the time has gone. it's been just over eleven months since justin proposed. and here we are, january of 2011 and we're married. everyone keeps asking, "how's married life?" i know it's different, but it all just feels the same. i'm just happy. i've got a bit of the blues from no longer planning a wedding, but i hear that's normal. there was so much stress, craziness and excitment in the last year. i guess i should just enjoy the road ahead of me.
with it being winter, i think justin and i are getting a bit of cabin fever. i'll catch myself in any room thinking, "what could i do to change this room?" this time of year, hgtv seems to be on the tv more for us so i've always got these crazy ideas. i hope our new budgeting will work and we can slowly start to make some changes to this house. i keep telling justin we need to sit and make a video to send to the new hgtv'd show so we can get our dream patio! we plan on re-doing that this spring. i've got my fingers crossed that the big semi-truck will show up in front of our house so we can use our deck money on new floors for the kitchen/mudroom/bathroom. :) something good has to happen to us right? not that we haven't had good in our lives, i just think we're still a little bitter from the vacation and clark getting sick thing during the wedding...
which reminds me, we still are waiting on our insurance money. it seems to be a battle. the travel agent said she sent all the paperwork in just for them to turn around and say something wasn't right. so, we're behind another six weeks i guess. people ask, "when are you going to go on your honeymoon?" good question. we can't book until we get that money back. we spent quite a chunk of change on that vacation and don't just have that money sitting around. so we have to get it back before we can book again. but thank God we decided to go through a travel agent so we're getting all this help and we were smart enough to actually get insurance.
i'm extremely bored tonight. i can only watch so much tv before i go insane. i need to read. i need to find books that hold my interest. i don't want to keep reading twilight over and over until i'm sick of it. i attempted to re-read them but it took too long the second time through so i gave up. i'll give it a while before i pick them up again. maybe i'll want to read them as quickly as i did the first time again. i still say those were two of the best weeks of my life reading those books. i've never held such interest in books before. i'm on the search for the next great read! (not that edward could be replaced (; )
so, for a quick catch up, yes my little clarky is doing just fine. he's as feisty as ever. so feisty i'm thinking of getting a trainer to come to the house. i'm tired of getting attacked everytime i wear slippers. by the time winter is over and he's used to them he'll just get mad at me for switching over to flip flops and there's another fight with him. it's a constant battle with this dog. my grandma told me, "i think you should just get rid of that dog." i said, "i think i'm a little too attached at this point, grandma." she says, "no, you'd get over it." haha that coming from a lady who's not too fond of dogs. she loved butch when he was old and moved about as fast as her, and bruno grew on her when he got older and calm as well. clark and buster (mom's dog) are just a little too crazy for her. they're too crazy for me too when they are together. but hey, they're brothers. what else would you expect? my favorite thing to do is wake up in the morning, put on my coffee, and grab a spot on the couch under a blanket with clark. he may be viscious and crazy when people are around and when he's awake and hyper. but my cuddle time with him is the best, and i wouldn't trade it for the world. he's my baby.
speaking of baby, my brother's wife, kara, is due in a month. february 17th to be exact. grandma would be tickled pink if they had the baby that day seeing as how it's her birthday. it will be another little girl for them. i sometimes forget she's pregnant because it's gone so quick. i guess we've had a lot on our plate this last year though. justin's sister rosena is also pregnant. she had her first appointment today so i think she's still somewhere in that first trimester. i'm excited to have more nieces or possible another nephew around soon.
well, i hope to update this more often. i've always got so many thoughts, and this is a good way to get it out. i hope to have some beautiful wedding pics posted soon as well!
