Two weeks?!

Wow, it's been a long time since I've posted anything. For those of you who follow my blog religiously, my apologies that there hasn't been anything sparkly and new to read or look at on here. If I had known that life would be so crazy, I would have tried to rest up so I could face it head on.

Things that have happened in the last two weeks:

* My little brother got his mission call! Our first elder in the family will be reporting on July 1 to the MTC to prepare to serve in the San Juan Puerto Rico East Mission, Spanish-speaking. My question is, when did he get this old?! Weren't we just teasing him about turning into a girl once he turned 12? Wasn't he just learning how to drive (and putting big dents in the garage door)? We're all excited for him. The coolest part is that Rachel was headed out for a spring break trip to Puerto Rico the very same day he got the call.

* Isabelle, my niece, turned one! Whoa, was it a year ago that I was coming off the plane after 30 hours of traveling only to be heading up to the hospital to see her a couple days after she was born? Indeed. She's adorable. We celebrated on her birthday (also St. Patrick's Day) by eating pancakes and eggs...things on her 'approved' list of foods. It worked out great because Matt got his call that day, so we celebrated it all!

* I found someone to rent one of the rooms in my condo. One down, one to go. But hey, we got the painting and everything in the smaller room finished... It's going to be a weird transition time for me as I'm trying to get contracts signed and post listings online for my place. I guess I'm not in a huge hurry to move up to Salt Lake, but it'd be nice not to have to commute for too long. So, it's shameless plug time: if you know of anyone interested in renting a master bedroom/bathroom suite with a walk-out patio in Provo for $375 a month + 1/3 utilities, point them in my direction. Here's my KSL ad.

* We had a Pi (Pie) party. In case you've never heard of this, on March 14th, it's Pi day...because it's 3/14...and pi is 3.14... I know, it's a bit of a stretch, but any excuse to have a party where we make food, right? And it was fairly amazing. Nine homemade pies graced our table, and people came and gobbled them up. I ate pie for the next three days, and actually, come to think of it, there is still some left in the fridge. (Remember my resolution to clean out the fridge on a regular basis? I'm struggling...)

Add to all of this a few more fun projects I've been doing: furniture shopping, making a wedding cake (it'll be done tomorrow...I'll post pictures), guitar lessons, reading a serial killer novel (it's fiction...when I finish it, I'll blog more...), apartment hunting (thank you to all of you who are keeping your eyes and ears open for me!), finishing a baby quilt, driving friends/family to the airport, AND getting sick amidst it's no wonder that I haven't been sleeping well.

And since the title of this post is "Two weeks?!", that reminds last day of my current job will be this Friday. It's so weird...I don't know when it will sink in, but right now it's this surreal dreamlike state where I know things will change, but it hasn't all been solidified. A weird limbo, really, but not a bad one. I feel like I should be more broken up or anxiety-ridden. My boss wants me to dump my brain into a bunch of memos, but it's more difficult than that. Luckily, the people who will be pinch hitting for the company are former employees, and I think they'll both do a fabulous job filling in. If not, that's what emails and cell phones are for, right?

And do you know what happens two weeks from today? My birthday.

My goodness, I remember when you did all that traveling and then met your niece. That's been a year?!
And I just have to say, your Pi Party was divine!!! So delicious. It makes me wonder about this wedding cake you mention--dying to see pix!
