Jason and I celebrated out 9 year dating anniversary yesterday and our 4 year wedding anniversary today!! I can't believe it's been that long already!! We FINALLY got our central air hooked up for our "anniversary present". It's great! We have been just dieing here this last week! I can finally dress my kids again and they are not constantly soaked in sweat! Though I am becoming ever more skeptical that Venily is going to be able to attend preschool. :( We didn't have any money BEFORE all of our water problems and now we had to pay EVEN MORE to get our central air hooked up. I can't even think about it or I will start crying... I'm just going to hold on to the hope that maybe things will turn around! (P.S. To top it all off, our water problems are NOT completely fixed and probably never will be! I ruined a few more of the girls' clothes with my last wash!).
Today, for our anniversary, we went on our first date since Haven was born!!!! My mom watched both the girls (nobody but Jason and I have watched Haven yet)... and I was a little terrified, but about an hour before we left, I realized that I have not seen my camera in quite some time. So I started looking... through my diaper bag, on the counter, through my car... I couldn't find it any where and I just knew it was lost forever! So when my mom came to watch the girls I was a little preoccupied with that (and focusing on not throwing up, I was so upset) that I let them go pretty easily! We had free tickets and went and saw Eclipse!!!! ♥ I'm a HUGE fan of the books! The movie was okay, not great.... but I'd willingly watch it over again and again and again, LOL! :) Seeing the movie was a lot of fun! Jason and I were the ONLY ones in the whole theater and Jason was cracking me up the whole time about how he's soooo "Team Jacob". And how obviously hotter Jacob is than Edward, lol. And I came home to the best sight ever! Both my girls playing on the floor with their Grandma, completely cracking up!!!! :) Haven didn't have any problems at all and both girls were GREAT!! I was so happy, but then started getting this "where the Hell is my camera?" feeling back!
Both girls went straight down for their naps and Jason and I searched for like 4 more straight HOURS!!! I knew I had my camera Sunday night and it was only Thursday today. I retraced my steps a million times, looked EVERYWHERE and cleaned out the car, laundry, floor etc., etc. I wrote down a list of every place we had been in the last 3 days. I called 6 different places and asked them to look in their lost and found for my camera... no luck! I remembered that we went to a restaurant and Jason had asked me if I had my camera and I had said no (he had wanted to take a picture of Venily). So I was sure I must have lost my camera before then, but Jason decided to call that place anyway and told them to ask around and left our phone #. A few hours later, we got a call and THEY HAD FOUND IT!!!! I freaked out, I was so happy, lol! I soooo didn't think it was there and I hadn't left our phone # with any other place I had called, and I had been frantically searching for sooooo long, I was sure it was gone forever and nobody would ever know how to contact me if they HAD found it... and we have like less than $0 to ever buy a new one, so I was sooo sad about it.... I just couldn't believe we actually got a bit of luck! :) We went and picked it up right away and I am definitely a happy girl again! I have lost my wedding ring twice before and it was the same sort of thing (though my rings were even worse!). I just HATE that feeling more than anything! I wish it hadn't almost ruined our day, but I am so thankful now, it was almost worth it! I'm definitely putting my phone # on my camera and keeping a better eye on it from now on!! Ahhh, maybe our luck has actually turned around?! I hope!!
Anyway, I love Jason more than anything! We started dating the summer after my junior year of high school and have been inseparable ever since! And our wedding couldn't have been more perfect, everything just the way we wanted it to be!.... We were reminiscing the other day about when we first started dating and Jason was like "isn't it weird that we both rode by on my motorcycle the exact spot where we built our house?... Imagine if someone would have told us back then that 9 years from now, we'd be married, and have a house here with 2 kids!" LOL! And it's true, it's so crazy how life works out sometimes! One little decision can change your whole course forever!
I'm very happy with where we are now and hoping for more great things to come in the future!!! ♥
