Brittny - 28 August 2009

High: Lexie came over tonight! (For those of you who don't know Lexie and I were best tech crew friends in YAs for my last two years of the group) It was so much fun to reminisce with her and talk about all the things she's doing now and all that we're doing now. You've got to love friends who can come over for dinner and you're still having fun talking and laughing and just enjoying each other's company 5 hours later. We finally had to force ourselves to stop talking so she could go home and get some sleep. It was soo much fun. Plus, Sam took a good nap while she was here, and I made us some really yummy food (BBQ chicken, potato salad, watermelon and cookies :)

Lows: Lexie and I were talking about some of the situations that face kids today. It's scary to think about the world that we're bringing Sam up into.

There are lots of dishes now to do because of the yummy food I made. Crap, I'd almost had them all cleaned up when I started making the food too :(

August 25th

High: I have found a new job that is solid and I am so grateful for the Holy Ghost and all that it does to help us make decisions that are within the Lord's will. Also being able to spend another birthday with Taylor only this time I could kiss her and eat her cake!!! I know this is a day late but better late then never right?

Low: Learning to go to sleep early again to be able to wake up at 5:30 to make it to work @ 7am.

Brittny - 25 August 2009

Low: Trying to get a project done for a client that was rather hot and bothered that it get done tonight. In a tool that I hate, but am apparently the "expert" from our company on it. Eww gross.

High: Taylor made cake for her birthday that I didn't get to have last night... but I got to have some today! It is incredible! I know this makes two days in a row that Taylor's cooking has been my high... but she's a really good cook, so you shouldn't be surprised.

Also, I got to ride on the scooter with Eric after dropping our car off to get maintenance done on it. It was only my third time on the scooter and it was more fun this time because I was not pregnant like I was the last two times. Plus, we went on the freeway, which was kinda fun to see the scooter get to go that fast!

Brittny - 24 August 2009

High: It was Taylor's birthday today! It was fun to get together with her today and celebrate her birthday. And she made really awesome chicken parmigiana for us. It probably should have been that I made dinner for her... but she's definitely the better chef so, oh well.

Low: Sam had a baby meltdown and we weren't able to go back to have some of the awesome looking cake that Taylor made. I'm still not quite sure what's up with him, but he hasn't slept much in several days. I think we might need to have a few days of just Sam and mom time so that he can get onto a schedule again. Luckily he is asleep now so that's a start!

Low: Feeling pretty sick :(

22 Aug 09

High: Attended a Spanish session at the temple this morning. Comprehended probably 18% or so.

Low: Can't remember the word for 'priesthood'. Sacredocio?

Low: Having to leave.

18 August 2009

High: I was able to jump right in to my new job, and I am loving it so far!

Low: We've bought multiple pieces of furniture from Wal-mart in an attempt to save money. Only one end table has actually been assembled, and we're making a ton of returns on everything else due to missing or broken pieces.

August 18, 2009

High: Having family coming up and spending sometime with us, as it is nice to get together and have fun. Also being able to spend time with Taylor to have new funny memories and just being with her.

Low: Not have any hours with work, kind of discouraging.

Brittny - 16 August 2009

Low: Today Eric and I changed wards for the fourth time since getting married, and my 10th ward that I've been in since high school. I don't do well with change. It seems like every time I start getting settled in a ward, it's time to move out of that ward :(

High: I really think I'm going to like our new ward. It's exciting to be in a real family ward again. Everyone was very friendly and I think we're going to enjoy our time here.

Also, Taylor made us some really yummy salmon tonight. I love eating fish and don't make it very often, so I get really excited when I do get a chance to eat it. Thanks Tate!


High - I get to go to Lagoon tomorrow.

Low- Itouch broken for half the day

15 August 2009 - Saturday with the family

Low: Felt pretty sick all day, and the headache was no fun to deal with.

High: With some encouragement from Brittny, I popped two Advil and went up to Park City with the rest of the family for some fun and games at the Park City ski resort. Had a blast jumping on bungee-corded trampolines, which I had done years ago, but I was still able to perform my triple back flips and double front flips like I used to. Also raced against Cody in the Alpine slide. Fun times all around.

High and Lows...August

LOW: Having Taylor not feeling well earlier this morning...

HIGH: Being able to go to the Salem 10th ward and hear one of my fellow missionaries give their homecoming talk...And more importantly being able to spend time with Taylor today!


Low: Brittny and Eric moved and we couldn't come and help them. It is hard to watch your kids work and need help and not be there to provide it.

High: Taylor and Ryan helped Brittny and Eric. Woohoo for family. Thanks Taylor and Ryan. Watching siblings grow up you sometimes you wonder if Heavenly Father just had a sense of humor when he put us all together because sometimes it felt like all we did was fight. Now it is rewarding to see you each support and serve one another. You are all great kids (adult kids) and I am really pleased that I can call all of you my family.
Love you all lots.

5 August 2009 - Eric

High: I felt like I got a lot done today. We looked at three places we could move into today, and we've narrowed the results down to two options: a condo or a house rental, both in west Orem.

Scary part of this high though is the fact that we just found out the house rental was a bogus scam by a Nigerian. Good thing we didn't pursue that option.

Low: I haven't been able to go work out in awhile, and I am really starting to feel the effects of it.

Ryan's High and Low -August 5th

High- Able to go to work today, even though I am not feeling 100%

Low-Not being able to spend time with Taylor...thats a big low.

Brittny - 04 August 2009

Low: I went to go work on some updates for work and the email has completely disappeared. It's not in my inbox, outbox, trash, spam... nothing, it's just gone. I have never in my 15 years as an internet user had an email disappear so completely without reason.

High: I got to talk to my dad for about an hour tonight while working on some stuff for the Theronyx website. I'm lucky to have such a great dad and I always enjoy getting to talk to him :)

August 4, 2009

Low: Ryan and I are both sick with some sort of stomach something.

High: We got to spend the day together!

Bigger High: I finally posted something for the high and low...something for the record books :P

August 3, 2009

For my first time with this whole high and low thing I am going to simple.

High: I can finally drive a car and got to drive to and from church yesterday. Plus mom let me drive on the freeway for the first time. Yes it is legal I passed my permit test on the 3rd time.

Low: I don't get to go to the Mormon Dodger night on Thursday and watch M. Russel Ballard throw the first pitch and Russel M. Nelsen catch it.

2 August 2009

High: Receiving an answer to prayers about China (see Brittny's post for the novel-length story)

Low: My insides wanted to be on my outsides and I was too sick for Church today.

Brittny - 02 August 2009

Low - Sam fought me through all of church. Eric was home sick this morning so it was just Sam and me. We bounced in the back through all of sacrament meeting, and then tried eating, bouncing, rocking etc in the Mother's Lounge. I finally gave up and went home (since I couldn't listen to Sunday School/Relief Society from the Mother's Lounge like I can with Sacrament Meeting). Of course, I put Sam in his carseat and drove halfway home... and he was out cold :P Just my luck.

High - Taylor and Ryan came over tonight and we made really yummy banana chocolate chip bread! My tummy is still happy thinking about it :) The recipe we used is here.
