L is for the way he makes me Laugh- whether by being funny or tickling me to death

O is for my sometimes Overwhemling emotions that he deals with so well

V is for the way he puts up with my Vampire obsession, listening to me analyze and summarize the books, and dragging him to the midnight showings of the movies

E is for the Eternity that I cant wait to spend with him

"Love isnt something you just Fall into, Its something you Grow."

This has always been one of my favorite quotes, and it is so true. I am so happy and so in love with my wonderful husband and know that as we grow, our love will too.

I found this picture when I used to do the ward bulletin each week for sacrament meeting and I instantly fell in love with it!! I dont know what it is but I think its so cute and aside from the blonde hair like to think its Joel and I :)

HaPpY VaLeNtiNeS DaY!!!!

Doctor Shmoctor

So I went to the doctor yesterday because of my constant tiredness. I have had this since High School and I went to the Doctor in H.S. and they said it was because I had an abnormal Thyroid. Then they said they could fix it by taking 2 pills a day for the rest of ever. So I said mmm ill think about it and never went back. (I dont like meds)

So Joel finally convinced me that taking some thyroid pills would be better than being tired all of the time- so I went and got some tests done and went to the doctor. (Big step for me)

So the FIRST Doctor I went to got back my tests and says my thyroid is Normal. What the crap? Apparently my thyroid fixed itself in the last 3 years. Then he preceeds to tell me that he thinks I have narcolepsy. Yes, thats right, NARCOLEPSY. you know where you just randomly fall asleep and cant help it? I told him I didnt think I had that because I can control whether or not I fall asleep...and he pretty much just told me he was right. So then I am referred to a sleep specialist.
So after waiting a month to get in, I go to the specialist and I must say I am a little disappointed. He diagnosed me with "Idiopathic Hypersomnia", which he said basically means "we dont know why you're so tired." Stupid. So he wants me to come in and do an overnight/whole next day sleep study. Basically I lay in bed and they watch me sleep overnight and while I take naps. Now normally this would sound like a DREAM come true. But the fact that it will cost me like $400 AFTER my insurance...yeah not loving that so much.

So according to the abov diagram- that is my plan. I am going to fix myself for FREE and actually save some money- and hopefully some pounds. Joel and I have actually kind of started this already (eating healthy and exercise and no mcdonalds for me) and I have seen a difference in how tired I am. So im thinking if I get serious about this and really start to cut out ALL the crap I eat and exercise hard, I can fix it myself :)
Wish me luck!
