Happy Anniversary to us!

Today is Tyler & my 7th anniversary. I am so grateful to the man who has enriched my life with all kinds of happiness and who continually takes care of me and loves me each and every day. I am sad that we aren't together on this anniversary - but my heart grows fonder of him each hour we are apart. He is my rock, my counselor, my example. Even now he is in OH taking care of everything: unpacking from our 2 week trip, caring for Anna, and preparing to go back to school. He is a wonderful man that I am grateful to call my husband. I love you, Honey Bunny!

All is progressing with my Dad. He is doing better each day. Last night I was able to spend some one-on-one time with him, which was nice. I think he's very surprised to be having any health problems whatsoever, especially with his heart, but I think he's dealing with it as best he can. The current update is that he should be coming home on monday. We'll wait and see what his doctor says today.

I withdrew from classes and feel at peace concerning it. I'm planning to work when I return home and hope I'll be able to make a dent in our school loan debt. Currently I'm thinking of substitute teaching until I find something more suitable for me. I like how flexible of a schedule I can have with substitute teaching, so it's very appealing to me in that way, although I'm not sure on the pay per day. I'm also considering the idea of returning to infertility treatments on-base. Since I would be going in for labwork every other day - a flexible job would be necessary to accomodate this.

Thank you all for your words of support and encouragement for my dad and also for me! I feel very blessed to have such devoted friends. Thank you.

Happy anniversary! You guys are an amazing couple. We sure love you!

So glad to hear your dad is doing better. What a relief!

Is this a permanent school withdrawl or just this semester? You are getting a job, huh. I just talked to a girl in our ward today who worked from home for a year. I'm contacting the guy tomorrow to see if I can do it too. It sounds nice. And we really need the money!

Dear Jill,

I'm so sorry about your dad, and that you had to withdraw from school. I hadn't checked your blog in a few days, so it's pretty incredible all that has happened. I'm so glad he is doing better. I hope you are able to come home soon.


Love, Kathey
