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.

I love to read about your enthusiasm for missionary work. It is sometimes hard to share the gospel, but so important and rewarding. Good for you!

Your boys are all so cute! That little Porter is ADORABLE!!

Love you!

I love reading your blogs so keep on going. I have also lost my UMPH wit blogging and have other things going on.

What is going on with me? I just got a new job yesterday (tuesday) which I start tomorrow (thursday) at S&S here in Logan which is a company that builds rollercoasters and thrill rides all over the world, my first project is working on a new roller coaster project in Australie. I am excited. I am glad to hear you love San Diego

You are so positive. I love it. And your life really does sound amazing. Wish I could make it to the temple that often. I am very impressed!! :)
It is always nice to bring in a little extra something... good luck babysitting!

not much new here, we work, play, laugh, dance until max gets embarrassed, have spontaneousness concerts with the music in the kitchen, eat, clean and do it again the next day.

I still read! I've been to the SD temple once and it is beautiful! Great goal. Not much happening here. I am newly obsessed with remodeling/updating my house, although we have very little $, so it is all dreams. I teach singing lessons for extra money, a bit of help goes a long way, right? I've also given up on blogging, but mine is all recipes, what's exciting about that? If we move, we'll make a family blog. Maybe.
