i just don't have anything to blog about. did i ever really? there's not all that much to say about life here in des moines right now. damon spends his days and nights studying (he's home and not studying for under 2 hours a day, from 6:15 to 8 when Ellis goes to bed), it's hot, ellis and i are bored.
we took a road trip to texas.
sorry these are all blurry, i've become a lazy phone picture taker.
ellis shopping at the children's museum. a great place, though i think he would have appreciated it a little more maybe a little older.
ellis was pretty naughty the whole week and a half, i got a $200 inspection ticket, even though i'd driven my stupid car with no ac (which i got fixed in texas) down there in JUNE so i could get it inspected/ac fixed. don't they think i would have rather taken damon's breezy roomy car? well. they didn't care or drop the ticket. ellis and i shared a room the whole trip which meant a lot of sleepless nights and 1+ hour wake times in the middle of the night, horrible naps, and 2 very tired and annoyed Demars. so we came home early.
here at home? well... the house is a mess and i'm too tired to care. i assume i didn't fail my glucose test since my midwife hasn't called me back. i spend hours a day trolling craigslist and zillow *which by the way, is a crap website that steals information on foreclosures and labels them as rentals when they are NOT rentals* trying to find us a new home with a little more space but still in the ward boundaries and something we can afford.
buying the veggie trays for youth conference wednesday morning... i was doing my test at 2 so i couldn't eat any pizza, brownies, pineapple lemonade or even measly salad! or even a cracker with strawberry jam on it!
i'm ready for summer to be over.
here's to hoping the next blog post will be funner and more exciting! i do love the 4th of july, it being my favorite holiday and all. though, really, the 4th of july is made for Provo, i have yet to find another place that does it such justice.
