late AGAIN?!?

This has bothered me for the longest time and I guess today I'm just in a venting mood. I HATE it when people are late. HATE HATE HATE it!! It drives me SO crazy. I would rather not go than be late. Even if its to something that doesn't matter if you're on time, like a social thing a someones house. Sorry if this offends you. I just don't understand how someone can be late to absolutely EVERYTHING!

My bosses both live less than 5 minutes away from work. Yet they can't seem to make it here before 9:30. They are up WAY before me and they don't have a baby to get ready either. It is rare when they arrive at work before me. I get here at 9. I'm not super early, but I'm not late either. When he makes an appointment for 3:00, he leaves the store at 3:00. Even if he isn't doing anything else to prevent him from going sooner. What does that say to the customer? I would feel like I'm not important enough for him to make an effort to get there on time. It is so stupid.

After about 10 minutes of waiting, I give up and think you aren't coming. I have better things to do than wait around for your lazy butt to show up at my door. Its one thing when its because something happened last minute, like a poopy diaper or something like that. But when you're late because you didn't feel like moving yet, that's just lazy.

I hate waiting around for people so I wouldn't want anyone to wait around for me.

a few random updates

Just a few things I fee like talking about....

first of all, I watch the Biggest Loser and I googled it yesterday and found this blog. I really like it. this girl is inspiring to me. I don't even know her.

Hayden has been sitting up by himself for a few weeks now. Its been nice. He just chills and plays with toys. Also Monday he turned 7 months!! It sure goes by fast.

One week from today is my last day of work.

1 week and 5 days until we are headed to Seattle.

Stupid me let Hayden play with my phone and of course it got full of drool so it died and I had to get a new one. It was BOGO so Paul got a new phone too.

Sorry no pictures yet (I'm at work)

Also Paul's family is coming tomorrow and I'm so excited! I haven't seen Kevin since our wedding and I'm so excited to see him. I just wish dad was coming too.

Happy Anniversary

Today is our 2 year anniversary. I'm going to tell you about our love story... (copying Taryn)
I first saw paul at church (singles ward) and thought to myself "yeah I would date him." The next weekend I was invited to go to the border to have a fun weekend in Tucson/Nogalas. So three girls and two boys went down there and stayed at one of the girls time shares (don't worry we had separate rooms!). We all went swimming and there was a lot of flirting. The next day we went to Mexico and we all were scared of the drunks so we all held hands with paul (except the other guy) and after a while the two other girls decided to let go leaving paul and I holding hands alone. UH!?!? crap what do I do? Well he is cute and I'm scared so I'm going to keep holding. :D The next day we held hands the whole way home :) We spent a lot of nights just talking until like 1 or 2 in the morning and got to know each other. 2 months later he proposed. It was so sweet.... We ate dinner and then he took me up the hill and told me a cute story... then fireworks started going off and I was like ok that was totally planned. So we walk to the edge. He had dug "Will you marry me?" into the dirt and had a few friends down there to fill it with gas and light it on fire. He got down on his knee and said Will you marry me? I said I don't know. After I prayed about it and a week later I said no. That's right. No. So we continued to be friends and hang out and in october he invited me to Germany for Christmas. I said yes and off we went. On New Years day he took me to a watch tower of a castle and proposed again. This time I said yes. On April 6 2007 we were sealed for time and all eternity.

Honeymoon in San Diego... this was a Sea World petting a dolphin.

January 18 2008 found out we were pregnant.... this picture is about 8 1/2 months along.

here's our sweet Hayden at 6 months!

My anniversary gift.... the most amazing card with the most perfect sweet message and beautiful tulips!
