we're prayerfully trying to make a decision and this is one of the hardest things i've had to figure out in my life. i don't want to hear negativity about what we decide. people in california tell us to move back and people in utah tell us to stay here. i've heard ALL of the reasons why, i understand what is involved cost wise, school and residency wise and happiness wise with both. this is something we've been considering for the past 5 months, so i don't want anyone's negativity telling us that we CAN'T do it, because people do it every gosh dang day.

p.s. thanks for the comments and support :) i appreciate all of the wonderful friends and family who are willing to support us in whatever we decide.

we've had a few roadblocks in our lives since we've been married, so you'd think we'd be used to it, right? i mean, there was the time we decided to move to the mountain to live a peaceful life and work the land, and then our house flooded on christmas day. then we lived below david's parents and ended up moving out months sooner than we expected. we lived in a cute little green house in the villas and when we decided that moving to utah was a great decision had to deal with our insane landlady writing us nasty emails.

then we made it to utah. we were excited! well, 3 semesters into byu night school they still hadn't accepted david into byu.

then we had a huge decision on our hands. stay in utah or move back to california? they both had their pros and cons but ultimately we decided to stay here where we had good jobs and we actually just got ut drivers licenses last week. david and i would go to uvu. we have been planning on moving to orem to be closer to school and even want to get a puppy.

yesterday david tells me that uvu doesn't offer a civil engineering degree which is what he wants.


this morning we looked at eachother as we headed out the door for work and both said 'what should we do?' we honestly have no idea. if we stay here david will probably have to go to u of u. that means a drive to salt lake a few times a week. and possibly moving there, which would mean new jobs. this is when california starts looking good again. i am so stressed.

i read a lot of blogs. today i read one that belongs to a family that i grew up knowing in yorba linda. they posted a letter they got from their son who is on a mission. it's strange to read his words when i haven't seen him since he was in primary, but the end of his letter was one of the greatest things i've read.

I'm so happy that you are happy. Life is good isn’t it? The Gospel makes everything brighter, I love it.

my testimony of missions and what they can do for individuals and families grows every day :)
