Oh, Spring.. Where are you?

Dear Cache Valley, Why are you snowing? Again? It's almost April and I would really like for it to be warm and beautiful for my birthday in 3 weeks. Okay? No snow. Not allowed. Rain is okay. I can do rain. But snow is too cold... Thanks! Love, Lindy Anyways, now that I'm done whining about the weather.. haha lately, I've been trying to learn to make new meals and branch out a little from our standard tacos and casseroles. So yesterday, I pulled out our brand new Crock Pot which I'd never even used before and made pulled pork sandwiches.. And it was a success!! Way easy. Don't know why I never did it before. I highly recommend a crock pot to anyone and everyone. It's magical. You just stick everything in it and forget about it! Then when it's time for dinner, it's all done! School and work have consumed our lives for the most part. I have tons of planning to do for my practicum teaching on Fridays [which I love!! The kids are adorable and so fun to be around], as well as tons of homework and finals prep in all my classes that it's a miracle we've got our heads above water still. But we do our best and that's what matters! Cameron is loving his accounting class. He's a genius when it comes to that kind of stuff and it all just 'clicks' in his head. I'm pretty darn proud of him :] He's the one that will be teaching our kids math, because I do not like numbers haha but that's okay! 4 more weeks of class, then finals week will be here. Summer is coming, I just have to keep telling myself that...

Well we are home from Florida and it was a whole lotta fun. We had all sorts of fun adventures and took over 350 pictures. I am sure the Florida stories and pictures will be posted soon!

Before we left for Florida we had some username issues with our aggiemail accounts and our blog. I was able to get it all straightened out..... but we found when we got home yesterday that ALL of the blog pictures were gone!! Blame it on google's changes to our aggiemail accounts!

I got my ring back yesterday :]
Everything is better now because of it.
Thank you Dave!

The future...

I've been on a little bit of a "post everything I can think of" kick lately. I'm not sure why and I apologize because now you get to read all my thoughts. But hey, this is like my journal in some ways and it's your choice to read or not :]

Yesterday, I turned in my application for the education program up here at USU.
Today, I had my group interview.
Now, I get to wait for 2 weeks until they get back to me.

I stink at waiting.
And I have no choice.
Maybe that will make me better at it.
I doubt it.

Anyways, now that's in and out of my hands, we get to celebrate!
With more homework...
And cupcakes and a little tiny bit less of a stressed out Lindy.

Cameron has been so good to put up with me lately. I've had so much homework and so much to do with this application and working 30 hours a week on top of it got me a little stressed out.

Okay, a lot stressed out.

My breakdowns because I don't think I can do it. My breakdown because I have so much homework and it's already 11:30 at night.
[We try to go to bed way early. I like sleep. Don't judge me.]
My breakdowns because it's already 8:30 and we haven't even started dinner yet. Then I feel like I'm a crappy wife. I can't even find time to keep my husband fed.
It's getting a little bit ridiculous.
Have you ever noticed how all your professors get together and make your big projects due and give mid-terms all on the same day?
I find it incredibly unfair.

I would like a little second to breathe. Okay? Let's coordinate breathing time so I don't explode. Deal?

Anyways, back to Cameron. He's the sweetest. When he can tell I'm having a hard time prioritizing and I'm getting overwhelmed, he always comes up behind me and rubs my shoulders, or gives me a hug and a smile. It helps me put it all back into perspective and remember that it's okay! No matter what happens with that upcoming test, or how late I have to stay up to finish a project, Cameron still loves me and he'll always sit beside me and hold my hand. Even when I act like a crazy person.

The moral of this story is: I'm a nut case under tons of stress. Cameron is the best husband ever to not only put up with me but do it with a smile on his face!

I love that boy :]

I miss my ring..

Once upon a time, this boy gave me a beautiful ring.
He promised to love me forever and take care of me always.
We got married and it was the best day of my life!

Now, that ring is being fixed.
The diamond about fell out
{okay, maybe I’m exaggerating a little but still.}
It’s been almost a week.

And I miss it.

The one I have on my finger now just doesn’t fit the same.
And it doesn’t mean the same either.
I mean, I know Cameron still loves me and I’m not even worried about that.
But I don’t get to look down at my hand and watch it sparkle right now.
I need it back.
This not having my ring thing is really throwing off my mojo.

Thankfully, I get it back tomorrow :]
