what's new?

hey friends, it's me, kristi. i miss my desire to blog. i miss reading about what's new in your world. everyone who reads this has to leave a comment and tell me whats going on in your life (that is if anyone reads this anymore).

i'll tell you a bit of what i'm up to lately. i started babysitting last month. i watch two extra kids, one just turned two and his sister is six. i make good money, but i do sacrifice a lot. i miss napping with hyrum and quiet moment and home cooked meals. but all in all i'm grateful for the opportunity to be a stay at home mom and make money on the side.

i decided to make it to the temple at least twice a month. i realized that someday when the temple isn't as close to me, i'm going to be really upset with myself for not getting to the temple more often. so this morning i woke up at 5:00 am and did the 5:30 session. tuesday's the only day of the week they do early morning at the san diego temple.

i love living in san diego. i don't ever want to leave. i just wish i had more family and a few of my utah friends here as well. life is great. i love being a mom. i love being a ward missionary. i love the gospel of Jesus Christ. i love my Heavenly Father.

that last paragraph might have been a little uncharacteristic of me, but i read an article about women who stalk mormon blogs (a positive article). anyway i realized i need to use my blog to be an instrument for missionary work. i have a bit of work to do to be more lds bloggish. that article is what inspired me to blog today.
