A Quote from Nathan

Today Nate told me, "I have been wearing my jacket all day and it is awesome." I think that quote says it all. Both Nate and I love fall and cool temperatures and obviously, we love jackets. Welcome Fall.

Nate has been sick on and off this week. Which is unusual, because he is rarely sick. Everyone knows that I work at the hospital, I care for sick people for a living, and I'd like to think that I am reasonably good at my job. Why doesn't that translate to the home setting? I do take care of Nate when he is sick but sometimes I am not as compassionate as I could be. Today I asked him if I could send him a bill? What was I thinking? I can't believe I said that! Any suggestions of how to be a better caretaker for Nate? Hopefully he gets feeling better soon, I don't like seeing him in pain.

Our Best Bites

Just found this great recipe site last night. Many people know that I am a pretty picky eater and this site actually has tons of recipes I really want to try. As the temperatures get cooler I enjoy cooking more and more. One of my goals for the year was to become a better baker and there are some great baking recipes that I am going try this weekend. Nate will be so excited!

Patience: One of My Missing Virtues

I have zero patience. Honestly, I should be super patient. I've been given plenty of opportunities to learn and cultivate patience, especially with all of our fertility issues, but I just haven't grasped the concept. I'm waiting for the Sear's repair man to come take a look at our washer and dryer. Nothing is wrong with them, it is just the yearly free check up that Sear's provides. I'm grateful that they are coming, I just hate to wait. Oh well, they said they would be here between 8-12, so just under 2 hours to go.

A Saturday Afternoon

With hesitation I realize that my Saturday afternoons have changed. BYU football is back. I do have to give my husband some credit, he only follows BYU football and Jazz basketball. It could be worse. So since I am going to be married to Nate forever, I am trying to learn to like watching sports. We went to the in-law's house to watch the game with everyone and we had a blast.

first game of the season means:

a super excited husband

the cutest nephew for some entertainment
(P.S. Keith, thank you for letting me play with you when I got bored, which was often. You are so much fun. Tell your mom that I missed her. Congrats on the new teeth!)

a lot of people were on the edge of their seat

and a lot of excited fans when BYU won!!!

Hope everyone else enjoyed the game. How many more games are left this season?
