Random

I love me a random/one liner post. They are easy and quick!!!

So, it's been a month since I have lost posted (not including today), here are some updates:

I took a POPARD Course the week of July 10-14, and I really enjoyed it.

I also house sat that week, and it was great.

I joined Tupperware. I love their products.

Our garden is growing beautifully.

I have had two babysitting jobs this summer. God is good at providing me some money for the summer.

I went to the lake in Chase with a friend a few weeks ago, and loved it.

I went to my parents' twice this summer. This last time, I spent in our old B&B Cabin, and loved it.

I am still only reading magazines. I should probably read a book soon.

I am still watching too much tv. Ha!

B.C has been hit with a TON of fires! Thankfully, we haven't been put on evacuation alert, but there are some places near us that were. There are now two fires really close to us, and one fairly close to us. We are praying for rain.

I met up with a friend who I met off of FB. We had a great visit, and could have chatted on for hours.

I really should clean up our house. Like, for real.

I have been watching lots of movies lately. My favourite has been The Zookeeper's Wife.

That's the Reader's Digest version of my/our summer! Hope your summer has been amazing!

Yes, I do realize that this old blog has been lacking. Again. I have been busy doing courses, babysitting/respite, going to my parents' for a few days, and meeting with friends and family. I will try to do a quick update in the form of randoms and one liners, but for now, I thought I would do a short post about our anniversary! It is our TENTH!!! I cannot believe that we have lasted this long :) Ha! Seriously, I super proud of us for sticking it out, and I think that if we can do it, anyone can (**cough, cough** Brangelina, TomKat, Eva Longoria and Tony Parker, well, you get the idea).

To read what we did for our past anniversaries, you can read them in order:

Year 1

Year 2

Year 3

Year 4

Year 5

Year 6

Year 7

Year 8

Year 9

We have been through a lot. Infertility, financial woes, 4 diagnosises, 1 move, three cars three cats, 1 fish, 1 major hospital stay, countless trips, lots of anger and frustrations, loss of Church life (mostly Anker, but me as well), lots of Volunteer and ministry experiences, lots of new friends, loss of friends, death of 2 friends, death of 4 close older people in our church in town, lots of tears, even more laughter, three TVs, tons of cell phones, 6 job changes (me), 2 job changes (Anker), 3 MLM companies (me), countless computers and laptops, 1 year of school (me), 3 sibling weddings, 4 births of nieces and nephew, more friends' weddings, 2 cell phone carriers, 2 internet/cable carriers, debt, 1 student loan, and well, more things that I cannot remember :) Our marriage hasn't always been easy, but I am thankful that God gave us to each other. We are a funny little couple; we do things that "normal" couples do, but for the most part, it works for us. We actually went to bought each other gifts together...we have done that even for Christmas, and we actually kind of like it. We often eat separately, and will watch different shows on our own TVs, and sometimes even watch the same show on separate TVs (ok, that is weird), and I will go on my own holiday. Anker doesn't like going out and seeing people, so I will often go alone. I know he loves me, and I love him, even if our marriage isn't "conventional". We are thankful for the last 10 (11) years together, and we are hoping for many, many more!!!
