OUR NEW NIECE!

Yesterday I got a text from my sister-in-law Carolyn saying she was in the hospital. I was hesitant whether we should go up because I didn't know if it was going to be a false alarm! Well I'm so glad we went because Carolyn did perfect timing! We arrived around 7:30 and the nurse said she was in labor and to wait in the waiting room, so we went to wait and I got to see all the babies. Then I got a text from Abi saying the baby was born! The nurse said if she would have sneezed or coughed the baby would have came out! SO LUCKY! We got to meet Hailey Brooke Soto! Mommy and baby are doing well! Carolyn didn't even look or seem like she just had a baby! We are so glad we got to be there and share some laughs with them!

Why is it so difficult?

I'm trying to manage my time but I feel like I'm failing. It's so hard and especially with my personality that strives on being the best. Right now my schedule is:

Monday-Work
Tuesday-School
Wednesday-School and Work
Friday- Work
Saturday- Work

And at the sametime I'm trying to be a great student, a better wife and fulfil my wifely duties, fullfilling my church calling,trying to control my immune system, hoping that I don't have Rhematoid Arthritis (which I should find out soon!), and taking care of Chloe.

It might not seem like a lot but I feel very overwhelmed. I think mostly its because I talk to people who either 1. Their parents pay for everything like school, car, etc. 2. I want to go out and play, but when I do I feel guilty and think I should be studying.

I guess writing this post isn't helping me with my time since in a few minutes I will be taking a midterm and then an hour after that another one=)

Home Alone!

So Scott had to go to a class for work this weekend. He was only gone from Friday 6pm- Saturday 8pm so I would call that in total a day? lol. Basically it was my first night alone and sleeping by myself in 6 months. I'm not going to lie I don't do good by myself, I get anxiety sometimes and I hate to admit that I'm afraid of the dark. I must be growing up though because I totally had so much fun doing nothing! I watched wife swap and super nanny, and played on the computer. When it came time for bed I arranged all the pillows around me (maybe I shouldn't be admitting this lol), slept with my glasses on, cell phone in one hand, and the night light on). After about 2 hours I realized I was fine and took off my glasses threw the pillows off, and grabbed Chloe to come lay with me. We had a perfect night to ourselves! I can't say Chloe had the greatest time, I bugged her the whole time...I call it pay back b/c she does that to me =)

Couple weeks ago...


We had my sister-in-laws baby shower. Everything worked out and was very cute. I'm glad I got to contribute on that special day!
We also had a wonderful opportunity to go to Conference. We went to the Saturday after noon session, there was I able to see my friend Dani (haven't seen her in months!). It was such a spiritual weekend. We then went over to see where some of the Fisher's were buried in Utah and met up with my father-in-laws cousin, Sherry. We had such a great weekend and we feel so blessed!
