::Sigh:: :)

I decided you needed a good entry. :)

Really, not that much is new. We're busy- as young married couples tend to be. I'm still loving my job and i love the people that i work with. I miss some of my good friends in provo, but i'm often talking with them- even if it's mostly work. Many people ask what I do. I'm a supervisor at the DC office of Ancestry.Com. During the day, I make runs to the archives to exchange records and then help the team scan those records. Mostly, it's a lot of answering questions, fixing problems, having 1 on 1's, and making spreadsheets. I'm quite tired by the time i get home. i take the metro to and from work- which is actually quite awesome. I really do enjoy reading- but due to lack of time, i've been a slacker at it for- ummmm.. 5 years. So I read ever morning on the metro. I'm on my 3rd book since November. Plus I read 2 over the Christmas holiday. :)Sometimes i'll read the paper or something, but i prefer the news online anyway. When I get home from work, we usually have dinner and then I try to work out. Mondays- FHE, Tuesdays- Boy Scouts, 1st wed of the month- Missionaries for dinner, and 1ce a month- Ward temple night. We don't have many free nights. i'll start teaching the 7 turning 8 year old children in Primary this week and I'm super excited! What a great year- they will get baptized! :)

Matthew is busy too. He's so awesome. makes me breakfast, lunch, and dinner. he also cleans the house and runs most of the errands. If he didn't, we'd never have a free day because we'd be running all day saturday! i know that he loves me and that's why he does it. He's also finishing up his classes. Right now, he's taking a history class, and an english class. It'll be nice when that's all done with. He's also looking for something part-time to do. :)

This last weekend, we were able to go home to PA. It was a long weekend and we had a super great trip. It's what i wanted to do for my birthday :) We were going to go to nyc but decided it was to cold and would rather do it on a warmer day... While we were home, we ate at Savos- my favorite pizza place.We hung out with some friends and spent time with my family. What could be better..

Life is good. :)


happy 23rd

happy birthday to me. <3 posts to come soon.
