Relay For Life

I am participating in Relay for Life. It is something that has always been near and dear to my heart... mostly because I truly believe that there will be a CURE one day VERY soon. I just know it. So, if raising money and spending a night out on a high school track brings us closer to that goal, I'll do it with a smile on my face!!

Anyhow, here's my personal donation page in case anyone feels so inclined!

Valentine's Day...

Valentine's Day... My husband swears it's a holiday invented by Hallmark to make money, but whatever. I saw this commercial the other day (don't remember the company) but it said that it's not a day to say I love you, but a day to say I love us. And, I do. "I love us, Jake." I love everything about us. I love that we are laid back (well, you are and I try to be). I love that we laugh at the same things and that when we go places we get annoyed by the same things. I love that we can complete each other's sentences and we are at times the "same person". I love that we can laugh at ourselves. I love that we have the same last name and that we share a home and a family. I love that we are a "we", an "us". I love that we never worry about what each other will think... because we normally already know. I love that we joke about anything and everything. I love that our home is filled with smiles and laughs and songs and dances and jokes. I love that we can spend all day being serious at work and come home and be total clowns. I love that we want the same things and that when we don't we are both willing to compromise. I love that our "us" makes me happy. 
I would not be who I am today without you, Jake... without us. I am blessed to share my life with you. I am blessed to be your wife. 

Happy Valentine's Day, Jake!
Happy Valentine's Day to the man who shares my future...

Jury Duty

Yuck. I am supposed to have jury duty next week and I really don't want to go. It's not that I mind jury duty- to be honest, I've never even had jury duty... but, I sent in a request to move the jury duty to the summer and it was denied. So, since I don't actually know if I have jury duty or not officially until the night before I now have to plan for three different things... 1. I have to plan for if I am in fact at school and don't have jury duty. 2. I have to plan for if I am not at school and do have jury duty and they aren't able to get me a sub. 3. I have to plan for if I am not at school and have jury duty and they do get me a sub. Fun, huh?
