  • I still need to write thank you notes from our wedding. That's what you're supposed to do, right? Jeff's mom asked me about it a couple of times. But then we had to move and then school started and then we moved again and then school started again and then life happened. I guess I should get on that. Where do you get thank you cards for wedding gifts? What are they even supposed to be like? I have no idea.
  • I h8 winter and snow but today was beautiful. It didn't feel that cold to me and the snow piled up on the branches looked picture perfect.
  • Speaking of picture perfect, I'm taking three studio art classes this semester plus three other "normal" classes. Which means: I'm in class for 22 hours a week. According to that whole "do two hours of homework for every hour you're in class" I should be doing 44 hours of homework a week. That's 66 hours a week of school stuff. Like that's gonna happen.
  • I'm obsessed with The Big Bang Theory. I want to live across the hall from Sheldon and Leonard but that would mean I have to be Penny. I don't want to be Penny. I want to be Amy, married to Jeff.
  • I actually have NO IDEA where Jeff is right now. I thought he already got out of class and that he works at 5 tonight but maybe I was mistaken.
  • Our new apartment is AWESOME. I think it's twice the size of our last one. Which isn't hard. But I love it even if it's doesn't have windows that face the outside.
  • English majors are chatty. At least my English class is.
  • Jeff surprised me with breakfast in bed this morning. I sure do love Belgian waffles and our Belgian waffle maker that we got for Christmas.
  • Hockey is a big part of Jeff's life now. Which means home alone time is a big part of my life now. Actually that's been a big part of my life since we got married. Our schedules conflict. I think that's normal, though. I think I'm getting used to it.
  • I still want a bunny.
  • Sometimes I really miss my Grandpa. I think this is normal. I'm not for sure, though. He's the first person who've I've been close to that's died.
  • There's this dripping noise that happens outside of our window that I hate.
  • I wrote letters to friends on missions. Lost my stamps, though.


  1. I haven't sent out thank you cards yet either. we're actually just sending out thank you post-cards. less postage, and well less writing. It has been 5 months, if i didn't want to write them then, I sure don't want to now, horrible I know, but you're right.. life happens.

  2. I'm pretty sure you can get wedding thank you cards anywhere. or you can just cutesy normal thank you cards! I hate writing them though, they're a pain.

    I love The Big Bang theory too! I love it so much. I've watched season 3 and 4 on tv and been catching up on 1 and 2 on dvd. I watched all of season 1 and half of season 2 yesterday alone haha.

  3. It is so totally normal to miss your grandpa. It's been such a short time since he died. My former young women president told me that when I feel like crying because I miss my mom that I just need to do it. It's been 17+ years since she's gone and some days I miss her terribly. The grief process is different for everyone and you take the time you need. It's all good!

  4. Vista Print is a good place for thank you's tons for cheap...possibly even free.....I have tons left over from our wedding haha you want 'em...they are very pink lol
