LDS, Married, & Gay

I got this link off of Karissa's blog- (thanks for sharing), but I find it very interesting and it has made me think of my own beliefs and feelings on this subject.  Being LDS myself, and knowing (and loving) many people in my life who are homosexual- it has brought new light to the subject.  I am still pondering on all of it- but thought I'd better record it for future reference as well as share with all of you.  Hope it doesn't offend or persuade any of you- just thought it important and interesting. :-)

I know that I haven't posted any pictures in my posts as of late, but I just really haven't taken the time to upload any recent ones.  Sorry to those of you who look forward to that.  However, as I have mentioned before, I enjoy using this blog as a sort of journal, and that is the purpose that this post is going to serve- so feel free to skip if you would like. :-)
There has been so much going on lately, not necessarily in my individual life, just around me it feels like.  I have had some pretty intense, profound feelings in the past couple of months.  What I am beginning to recognize is that these feelings as are maybe more of promptings.  I feel like a crazy person sometimes even thinking that, but I seriously cannot fight it back.  A few of these promptings I have not acted upon, and end up wishing I had- and the reasons for which I should have are clear as day!!  I don't feel like I need to or should mention who or what these promptings involve- for one, there are just too many and for another- I feel like it is pretty personal. 
I also feel very grateful and blessed to be experiencing this.  Heck- it could very easily be all in my own head, and while sometimes I feel like it is, I also have a hard time believing that.  I dunno- just wanted to get it out.

Funny thing boredom is... I just had knee surgery, and man is this laying around doing nothing business killing me.  So I have decided to babble yet again on my blog.  While I hope you enjoy reading, this blog is mostly for my family and I so that we can remember feelings, events and life.  So hopefully you don't find boredom while reading :-)  Not much is new in our lives.  We are still living in Cory's parents basement, and it is working out just fine.  Although I would MUCH rather be in our own place, we just aren't sure where our lives will be taking us right now.  Tenley is now 18 months old.   She had her well baby check just the other day, and she is healthy and smart.  She is getting such an attitude, and I can just feel those terrible two's coming on. 

We are selling our trailer that we bought to live in in Nevada.  So if anyone is interested, PLEASE let me know.  Also, I am considering selling my wedding dress and prom dress, any takers??  Ugh, seriously the things that cross my mind while laying around.....  Anyway, seems to be that even blogging is finding boredom. :-(

We're Home......

Turns out the 6 month to 1 year job that we thought Cory had in Nevada has been cut dramatically short.  We found out a few days after Christmas that Cory was going to be laid off and thus transferred back to Utah.  He already has a new job with another company here in Utah, doing the same apprenticeship program, but man has this thrown us for a loop. 
We made so many life changes to go out to Nevada, and come to find out it was for a very short period of time.  I find myself feeling very stressed, frustrated, grateful (to be home), among many other emotions.  For now we will be staying with Cory's parents because everything is still up in the air as to how long we will be in Utah for, which is probably what stresses me out the most.  I am a very big planner, and not having a plan really makes me on edge- ugh.  I just keep telling myself that everything will work itself out, and try not to stress about it.  I am very blessed to have an amazing family, amazing friends, and a very loving and supportive Heavenly Father to help me get through it all. 
Tenley is still growing like a little weed and she is starting to get four molars- yes, not just one or even two- but four all at the same time- poor girl!!  She is a jabber box and can speak so very well.  Love her to pieces. 

With the new year now in full swing, I have still not written down my goals.  I feel like I have so many floating around in my head, I just need to get them down.  Hopefully this year will be as great as the last, and we will be able to encounter some new adventures.  Welcome 2012- so much for the end of the world you crazy people!!!!!
