the end of two

Today is the last day of our first two years.  <3

To celebrate that we have spent the day drinking hot cocoa and watching it snow. <3

That's right, it's snowing! I couldn't be happier! <3

Whatever you think, I didn't wait

I was thinking today about David serving his mission. It was a rough two years for me, I won't lie. In the end I changed a lot and some of it for the good and some of it for the not so good. The reason I was thinking about this was because I ran across a "waiting" blog. It made me rather...angry? Well, not really angry but kind of angry/annoyed. The whole idea of setting your life aside for two years is still a baffling thought to me.

"But Chelsey, I thought you waited?"

Whatever you think, I didn't wait.

I told him I wouldn't. Did I write him? Yes. Did I love him? Yes. Did I miss him? Yes. But I didn't wait.

Waiting as defined here states the verb as "to remain inactive or in a state of repose, as until something expected happens ."

If you know me at all I know nothing of the word repose in my life. I don't wait. I am THE MOST impatient person on this planet.

I know that the Lord wanted us to be together but I also know that the Lord does not want anyone to sit idly by on anything we do at any time.

My advice? Don't wait, live your life. If you are meant to be the Lord will make it happen. Three months before David came home I realized via prayer that we were meant to be. I still didn't wait. Waiting is the lamest of all verbs.

insurance insurance insurance!!!

In the past three weeks I've:

-Had a gross wart (under my wedding ring!) removed
        That turned into a blister
           popped WHILE interpreting....
              became an open wound
                 still is a huge wound
                      wound cleaner $10, Vicodin $5 (yeah it hurt that bad)
                      I still can't wear my ring. Does that mean I'm single?

-Had pink eye
        haven't been able to wear contacts for two weeks.
            infected a coworker
               did you know anti-biotics for this cost $35   ?   
                  Dumb children don't know how to wash themselves.....

-Had TWO, not one, TWO spider bites on my legs
           That turned into an infection
                 which turned into the most painful thing ever, aka can't walk
                      which turned into the THIRD trip to the doctor in under two weeks
                          Anti-biotics $15
                               I am now done with 10 days of two pills twice a day
                                  And did I mention one of them got worse? WAY worse?
                                      So coming this week I'll be headed to the doccy for trip #4.

What is the silver lining in all of this?

I'm Double Insured.
God Bless America for that!
I've only had to pay for medicine. Not even copays or deductables. If I did....woah, I'd be broke.
Thank you Federal Way Public Schools.
Thank you David Jarvis and Richards Pipe.
