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 AMERICA AND I ALWAYS WILL!

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!
