So Ave is off for his first day of the high school tryouts and I am nervous enough for the both of us. He has been playing soccer since he was in kindergarten and he loves it and he's really good but you just never know. So the next few days I will have a pit in my stomach and hoping hoping hoping that he makes it. How do you prepare for something like this? It is a dreary, rainy day and I have watched 3 episodes of this supermodel show so that should tell you how productive of a day I have had. Seth scrapped the wood floor really badly this morning so I decided to try one of those markers to fill it in with and then I kept seeing more and more scratches so I kept colring them in and I am just noticing with the light hitting it differently this afternoon that it made it look even worse so Steve is going to kill me. I was just trying to make it better and I ended up making it worse, that seems to happen to me alot. Especially when I talk, I put my foot in my mouth so many times that I am not surprised that I don't have many friends. I try to hard to be right and make myself sound smart.is the problem I think. I used to be smart but now that I have teenagers in the house and a husband who knows everything I second guess everything. All I want to do is be right sometimes, like what if I put the extra cabinet in the laundry room and it does look stupid and close in the whole room? I am looking at it as a person who is only 5'5" and Steve is 6'3" so could he be right and then I will end up hating it and wanting to take it all down? I always have these great ideas in my own head but following through I chicken out. The lesson we had at church on Sunday was all about having faith without fear. I realized that I have lived my life with fear, fear of failing, of not being as good as somebody else. It really has stopped me from accomplishing very much in my life. I have had so many opportunities and I have not done with them what I should have. WOW where did all that come from? ... cabinets in the laundry room to faith versus fear. yeah I really need to get of the house :) Well off to make something that will appease the boys hunger and pick up Ave from tryouts. Keep him and me in your prayers or we both might have a nervous breakdown!!!

Ask me if I am happy? Really... I actually had a good sleep last night(which is a huge thing for me since I am a total insomniac) and I even got to sleep in. Sounds great so far right? Well around 8 Steve came in and woke me up, I have to admit I was a little annoyed, and he asks me in a very loud voice "Did you notice that I was up all night throwing up?" Now is that the way to start the morning? So we appear to have the stomach flu going around. Now the worst part is that Steve can have no contact with Seth. I am not sure why he thinks that is fair since anytime I am sick not only do I have to take care of Seth all day, I am expected to do all of my regular daytime stuff too. I guess its my punishment for taking a break yesterday and going out on my own. It's gotta be a mothers curse I suppose. I am contemplating keeping every one home from church so that if it does go through anybody else we can't be blamed. Sigh... I really did have a good sleep, maybe God knew that I needed to have some stored up strength for the next few days. Wish us luck!

Okay so I have decided to enter the world of blogs... again. I don't quite remember why I stopped last time but I think it was because it really is open to the whole internet world. But things are sooo boring with my life that I find myself reading through random peoples blogs and searching KSL (local news and classifieds) that I thought maybe this would be a little productive since I struggle with sitting down and writing a journal. I am not going to post pictures but those of you who read this and want to see my fabulous family and the trouble we get into every once in a while you have access to my facebook so that takes care of that! I am off for a date tonight with Steve and one of his college friends to see Vantage Point ? ... not excited about the movie but I really like Laura and Mason (and Steve) so I will enjoy myself. Its nice to have adult conversation every once in a while. My vocabulary consists of no, no, stop it, get down and please please have a nap and no :) Thats what its like having a very 'determined' 2 year old in the house. I have been having fun with Mama Smith getting her out of the house to shop for wedding stuff (Steve's youngest sister is getting married at the end of the month) If I didn't have Mama here I don't think I would make it, she is a nice reprieve from the boredom. I always complain that I have no friends and that I am always praying for one but when I get out of my selfish moods (which really isn't often... some things never change) I realize I have a wonderful relationship with my mother-in-law so my my prayers have been answered. I appreciate her so much. It's crazy how things can always be changing in our lives but the need to have friends never goes away. Okay I really need to get out of my PJs and get ready for my date night! I do love my Fridays! Its been a greay, cold day and I have cleaned out my fridge, organized toys, did some minor dusting and laundry and kitchen and all that fun stuff... not!! So now that it is almost 3:30 in the afternoon I better get ready!
