April was Chelsea’s Wedding. I left early Friday morning and came back Monday. She had her wedding in Manti, in a temple with a rich and interesting history. Very beautiful. She had a reception in an Equestrian Center. I spent 8 hours Friday shoveling rock, cleaning windows and setting up. I got very little sleep that weekend.
I really missed Aaron. It was like half of me was missing, and it was the first time we had really been apart since we got married. I don’t know how military wives do it. I could barely stand 3 days, I don’t know if I could do a year or more.
May brought lots of showers. I don’t really like rain. Oh well. Nothing I can do about it. My allergies really started to bother me and I started remembering how much I hate mold. I have not had any major flare-ups, so Dave’s magic medicine is working really well. This time last year, my co-workers thought that Aaron was beating me, my eyes were so swollen. Sometimes I would get to work without being able to open one of my eyes, but so far this year I haven’t.
June brought vacation time. Mostly Aaron and I have just hung out at home. I took a bunch of 4 day weekends and I have had a lot of time just to relax. Which is good, because I have been buried the 3 days between weekends. Aaron has had to be in school on the Mondays, but I’ve been running errands. I am also learning to ice cakes. I am not very good at it.
Jay’s Birthday was last week and we went to his Baptism. It was great. I loved spending time with my sister and her family. I miss them a lot. I have been really baby hungry the last month. It really helped to be among family.
