Today I reached the pinnacle of discomfort. After 8 hours of following my boss around taking pictures and video, as well as crawling on the floor trying to fix computers, I came home.

I immediately had a return of nausea. This was followed by heartburn, but before I could get some tums for relief, I threw up, causing me to pee my pants. I threw up so hard I got a bloody nose.

Today was not a good day in pregnancy land. Tomorrow had better improve....

Happy New Year!

So, this post is a looong time coming. I can only post on Daniel’s computer and he’s on it all the time. :) Anyway, so here’s what has been happening this month

We are LOVING our puppy Tonks. Thanks SO much to everyone who helped take care of her until we got into our new house. Your help is much appreciated. The cats don’t like her much, mostly because they don’t think it’s as much fun to be chased as it is for her to chase.

I got a new job. I’m pretty sure all of you know by now anyway, but I thought I’d explain what I’m going to be doing. I’ll be working for Jason Chaffetz as his Utah County office manager. What does that mean? It means answering phones, talking to constituents, working on cases, and meeting lots of fabulous people! I’m very excited about this opportunity and I hope to learn a lot. I am especially excited to get an office in the capitol building in Provo. That is such a gorgeous building. I am also going to Washington, DC for about a week for training. Apparently as an insider I get some pretty awesome tours. I’m VERY excited about that. I’ve always wanted to go to DC.

Daniel and I celebrated our first Christmas together, and it was wonderful. After being engaged for the past two Christmases, it’s about time I got to spend one married. Just kidding! Anyway, we got 2 tons of coal from my parents. (Nope, that’s not a joke. We’ll be using it to heat the house this winter.) We also got a bunch of movies, a new VCR/DVD player, clothes, books, and lots of candy.

In addition, Daniel and I also celebrated our first anniversary. I can’t believe we’ve been married a whole year. It’s been great though. And I’m excited for this next year. It’s going to be even better.

We’ve moved! We’re living in my parent’s house while they are in Washington, DC. This also means we’ve inherited 7.5 acres of land and two cats. It’s wonderful to have so much space. And guess what. No spiders.

Well, I think that will about do it for news! And, here are my resolutions.

 I’m going to work on magnifying my callings.
I’m going to spend more time catching up with old friends, and making new ones.
 We’re going to get out of debt and get ready to buy a house.
 I’m going to try to read one book a month. A week, if I can manage it.
I’m going to get to level 80 on WoW. (Come on, I had to have one fun one.)
