We are still alive....

Wow....I can't believe how long it has been since I last blogged. Sorry about that. And I am sorry to say that it won't be getting any better this month. We are about to move!!!!!!

My week is crazy. My Dad will fly in tomorrow morning and Mike is taking Wednesday and Thursday off. Wednesday we will finish up our packing (we have pretty much everything but our kitchen and our everyday items packed and sitting in our storage unit. Then Thursday we will pack the truck. Friday I will clean the apartment from top to bottom and then Saturday the landlord will to the walk through and then my Dad and Mike will be off. They should get to Birmingham on the 12th and Juliana and I will be flying in on the 13th. And my Dad will fly out on the 14th. And Mike will start school on the 19th. It has been crazy. And it just seem that this week and next will be the peak of our craziness. Anyway, I feel bad that I haven't been keeping thinks more up to date here but, really I have been so busy.

So, I am proud and a little embarrassed (ok actually a lot embarrassed) to say as of last Monday July 28th was it...I finished up my associates degree. I have been working so hard to get it all done and I did it. I have been working on it for about 11 years...that is so pathetic but it is a very big accomplishment for me and I am going to walk at the Weber State graduation in December. I just feel like I need to. So between getting things ready to move and school I haven't been able to be around like I wanted but, I hope that September I will start to find my new grove and I will be on here and my FHE board a lot more. (Sorry girls that I haven't gotten my FHE board going yet...I promise it will be one of the first things I work on.)

I hope all of you are having a great summer...next time I post I will be living in Alabama...Wow!!!!! This is just to strange.

I remember when you helped me move right after I had Bryanna and you had Juliana! You were such a big help to me! Wish i could come and help you right now!
And I think you are amazing to have finished up your degree!!! It is a very big accomplishment! You always said you were going to do it, and you did!! Way to go, and whenever you get things going for FHE, let me know, I want to help!

Yippee for you! No need to be embarrassed. You completed a very important goal you set for yourself.
And moving on top of it all??!! CRAZY! I am glad we get another week with you here. We'll have to do some serious partying!

Hey Natalie,

This is Britney Ericksen...I'm in your cousins ward...we were at the Breaking Dawn party...brown hair.

Anyway, I was just on Viewmont's blog and saw you!! I had no idea you went there! You are a year older than me (I went to Viewmont too), but Davey Ericksen is my hubby!

Small world! Anyway, are you done with your book? I wrote a whole post on my blog, if your board you can read!
