New Years forward

So this year for my new years resolution I decided it was time to finally give up my pop addiction. It has been a rough couple of weeks but I am doing it. Its funny how many times I have thought now is a great time for a Diet coke or Pepsi but those times are getting farther and farther apart. Thank goodness! My caffeine headache seems to be gone as well!

We have been cooped up in the house a lot with all the cold weather. You can only go to Mcdonalds and Carls Jr so many times before it gets old. :)
Owen is not doing preschool this spring we are keeping him home until kindergarten starts this fall. That will be interesting to say the least! He went into a new class in primary and luckily still had the same teacher. He loves her and she makes it easy for him to go to class every Sunday.

Jeremy's cousin Jeffrey and his wife Kelli have been staying with us for the past week or so. It has been so nice to have someone around to talk to! Jeremy has been working crazy overtime hours (84 last week) so having them around to hang out with and play with Owen is awesome!
It is funny how it worked out actually. Jeremy and I let them put most of their stuff under our house until they came back for school. -they are the couple that had their sweet baby pass away from sids just in October.- We had been waiting for them to call and tell us they were back in town and wanted to pick up stuff but the first few days of school had already come and gone and we hadn't heard from them. Owen and I had just finished saying our prayers for the night and in it we said : let us be open to help those who are need of our service. Well about 5 minutes later they called and said they were in town but the apartment wouldn't be ready until the 19th. I didn't even hesitate or ask Jeremy I just said come stay here! Funny how those things work out!

An update to that is they are expecting a second child to come into their family about the end of July! How exciting and wonderful for them to have that blessing again! A baby heals the most broken of hearts. I was a little nervous to have them stay because all of you who know me well know that I don't have the gift of saying the right things all the time. I was constantly thinking about what I would say before they got here and how careful I would be about certain topics. But after about only 5 min with them I realized they were both well on the way to what they call: moving forward not moving on just forward. They are both so strong and I am so glad to have them as part of our family.

Owen has been having a blast having live-in guests again! Every night when Jeffrey gets home from school or work Owen runs up and gives him a giant hug on the legs and says"i missed you!"
He has been so funny lately too! We went to church this past week and Owen was facing me when the bishop was releasing someone and asking for the ward to raise their hand in recognition. I did raise my hand and since Owen didn't see what was going on he just saw my hand raised up he quickly stepped forward and gave me a very loud high 5! The whole row behind us was laughing so hard! That kid makes me so happy!

I have yet to make a new appointment with the new transplant doctor. I called earlier this week and the receptionist was NOT nice. In fact as a first impression that was about the worst I have had in a long time. I really hope it is not how they whole office is or I am in trouble. Hopefully it was just a bad day for that girl and they will call me soon for an appointment. The whole referral thing drives me crazy considering I used to do that at the office I worked for. Its not that hard people.!!!
