HAPPY LATE THANKSGIVING TO ALL!
I had a wonderful thanksgiving this year, Jacob's family was out of town so we spent it with my family and the food was delicious! i hope everyone else had the same! things have been pretty good w/ Jacob and I, money is tight and we are both working almost all the time, but we are finding ways to be close and we are still madly in love. I work 8am-6pm almost daily and Jacob works from 4pm-12:30am so we never really see each other on the weekdays and we defiantly don't see each other in the evenings, its hard and i miss him all the time, but thanks to our hard work i am proud to say that we have been able to pay off all of his dept within 5 months! i am excited for Christmas, all the decorations and family, i love to holiday spirit!

Today is my sisters birthday. I hope it was a really nice birthday for her.
Have you ever notice that when one thing falls apart, everything falls apart! Today Jacob called me and told me that his school un enrolled his from his class for a day late payment, then 15 min later he called me and told me that his computer was dead, like broken dead, then Larry tells me that he has to take the computer he was going to let us use back. oh well! like my mom says crying doesnt fix anything, so i wont. life has been so on and off, good then bad good then bad! its nice to have supportive friends and family! and at least i get to sleep in everyday.

Today in church I realized that September 11th passed me by and I didn’t even accolade it. Jacob asked me what the big deal was, I looked at him in disbelief and told him that I feel very strongly about the 11th average people became heroes that day, children lost parents, wife’s lost husbands, husbands lost wife’s, parents lost children and the list goes on. afterwards we all stood together as Americans, not democrats or republicans, not blacks or whites. But brothers and sister who had just faced a terrible blow! The world changed that day, b/c of September 11th so much has changed. I never want to become desensitized to what happened on that day, I never want a September to pass when I don’t think of it and at least acknowledge that it happened. i cried for those people! I cry for those people still! I LOVE

Jacob and I had a hard time getting out the door for church today, not b/c its so early in the morning (we had been going to 8:30 church and this week our ward started @ 11.) it was b/c I was having an emotional time, anyone who knows what’s going on w/ my family right now might understand, I woke up to a text from my brother in law and that put me in a foul mood w/ Jacob for some reason. I was being mean and nasty! But after my shower I dried my hair and wondered out to the kitchen where I had gotten another text from my brother in law, this one had a different effect then the first; I walked over to Jacob on the couch, wrapped myself in a blanket and broke down into tears! I cried for at least 15 min and told Jacob all the thoughts that had been in my mind but to painful to talk about up until then. Jacob did what any good husband would do, he held me close and told me he loved me. I just kind of feel a little overwhelmed and hurt.
Anyway Jacob and I got a calling in our ward today, we are now primary workers, for at least the next 5 months, I'm excited, and I like kids.

I feel like I really haven't had a moment to myself over the last 2 weeks, last week Andrea was in London so my mom and I were looking after Logan, and to add to that Joseph was in town w/ his wife and wonderfully rambunctious children. Logan was such a good boy and I loved meeting my sweet niece and nephew! Vincent and me became fast buddies. On Mon me and my mom took them to superstition mall so they could ride on the merry-go-round, then my mom took them shopping for a winter wardrobe and they got some great stuff! Then the day before they left I got a call @ my apt from my sister-in-law Dawn asking if there was anyway I could come over, apparently he lost a little blue balloon and he was so sad! he started crying and saying "I want Aunt Rachel!" yeah he won a place in my heart big time with that. Destinee was also cute and sweet, they called her Ducky for a nick name b/c she walked like a duck. After they left we thought all was well and that we would get back to life as usual but my family came to find out that Andrea is leaving on an extended vacation and leaving Larry and Logan here w/ us so now everyone is needing to reschedule their life's to meet Logan's needs and i will continue to have limited to no time to myself! anyway Logan is yelling at me so i better post this quick!

I cant believe its only tuesday! This week is going to be soooo long.
All my friends have situations going on in their lives and its so interesting to see how much we have grown, we went from having all this teenage drama to having adult problems, Jessica and i are both struggling w/ money, and Kaddy and B are struggling in their love life's. over all i'm really happy for Jessica right now though, she seems really happy in her relationship, the whole time she was here she didn't stop talking about Jordan. I talked to B for hours yesterday, we talked about what she wants in her life and what id like to see for her, we talked about her love life and mine. it was great, I love everything about that chick!
Andrea leaves for London today, and she basically said she wouldn't compensate me, so i'm going to do service and hope that the lord will bless me for it. Its hard to think that a mother could leave her child for 5 days and just think we should watch him out of love but I will, b/c i have nothing to gain from being as stubborn as her.
yesterday Jacob and I spent the evening at his parents house, I guess i spend so much time at my parents house that I never think about being home sick, but i can tell that jacob was missing the house he grew up in and his family. He was in such a good mood just hanging out over there. i love to see him happy. Its important to me when all the people i love are happy.

So I have big news today!
I had a whole girls weekend, it was great. Jessica and my cousin Caitlyn were in town, so I was able to spend a lot of time in the pool sun bathing and I was also able to go skinny dipping. I saw sex and the city and see all the girls again after it had been so long! Sat night/ sun morning I went home and couldn’t stop talking I wasn’t even pausing between words, Jacob just kept laughing at me cause I wouldn’t shut up!

I was so excited about my boys being back in school, stupid me! thinking that once school was back in they would go back to their old selves I was so WRONG they were good yesterday but C was quick to throw a fit today when he didn't get his way. AAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!! The only bright side is that this making him stay in his room till he writes a certain amount of sentences thing is starting to work fairly well, today's sentence was, I C. will earn the things I want by using my good manners and my kind words. Dillons bad attitude isn't much better. I think V knows that her inconstancy is so bad for them so she was hard core about the idea of me sticking to my word.
GIRLS NIGHT OUT!!!!!! Oh my goodness! so since Jacob doesn't get home till midnight its nice to keep myself entertained w/ family and friends but for like the last month the only people I have really spent time w/ is Jacob and my family. It was so nice to see the girls and talk about what is going on in their lives! Kaddy was super cool and chatty the way she only is w/ good friends plus she was in a super good mood since her loser roommate had just moved out, and B had just come from Dustin's house (of course) and me and Kaddy tried to convince her to start a blog called "Whats going on w/ B and Dustin now". I'm really curious all the time, are they together are they just friends? are they on speaking terms? are they in love? are they in like? are they in hate? WHATS GOING ON?!?!?! I guess that's my big question, but I know its over all none of my business.
Im getting really excited for Jessica to come visit! its going to be nice for everyone to get together. oh if anyone is looking for a babysitting job in Scottsdale let me know b/c i know someone who is looking for a nanny.

So my ward likes to introduce all the new couples by asking them to give a talk in church, so today was the Anderson's turn, I can honestly say i don't love speaking in church, I'm sure its more of a benefit to me then the people I spoke to. Jacob only took about 15 min putting his talk together , it took me like 3 days! It went well and I was happy to be the first speaker.
HURRAY! tomorrow is the first day of school so i'll be back to my normal schedule @ work, and the house is almost done being remodeled so i wont have people talking to me all the time and keeping me from getting stuff done. I also think that the boys will be warn out and more relaxed. If I were to make a thankful list I think "the start of the new school year" would be on it.
I want to be more spontaneous! maybe I can talk someone into going to the grand canyon w/ me, if you want to come let me know, maybe we could even ride a burro. I trimmed like 3 inches off my hair and I still have split ends, if anyone knows a good product or an ancient Indian cure for split ends please share your info cause I NEED it!

yesterday may have been one of the wost days iv ever had at my job. Connor has been acting horribly and treating everyone around him poorly. he turned 9 and i think he automatically became a teenager, hes been rude and flat out mean to his mom, brother, and me. Im not going to recap the whole story of yesterday for several reasons
1. it would take to long
2. I wont be able to get over it if i keep rehashing it
and 3. iv already told the story to several people and its starting to get old.
its just been a long stressful week and i don't know how Jessica did it on a regular basis b/c im telling you all i can think about is the weekend. I'm going to sit on my butt, eat till I cant breath and cheer for America while i watch the Olympics. i usually spend every sat doing a re clean of my apt so i can stand to be in it w/ out feeling like I'm going to die from the stress of my hectic mess and Victoria's hectic life. its just way to much for a completely unorganized person like me!!!!!!!
im so excite to spend time w/ Jacob! ugg! week end!

Jacob started a new job this week, he works 3:30 pm to 12am and this is the boys last week before school starts so they are out of camp this week, needless to say Jacob and I will be seeing very little of each other all week L, for example, Today I will be working 12 hours and its not so bad considering the boys are being good, but I’ll end up overnighting and I wont see Jacob till Fri. I hate being away from him for to long, when I was in tx I was so lonely w/ out him. I know it sounds lame, as if im not independent but iv done the whole alone thing and I much prefer the whole together thing. Honestly I think i'm in love. Getting married has been the best thing iv ever done. I have fun all the time and I’m never alone, I have never been so happy or felt so loved.
Its my bosses Birthday next week, if anyone has any ideas on what to get her let me know b/c the woman has literally everything!
Anyway I have 4 more official hours of work then I get to sleep in a bunk bed! Hurray for me!
