Cravings are such a hassle! Especially when you don't have anything that you're craving! I guess that's why they call them cravings. I suppose if you DID have everything you craved, it wouldn't be a craving..right?

I've had so many cravings recently. They always come at the most random times too! Recently, I've wanted Rice Krispie Treats, chocolate chip cookies, and the worst one that keeps coming back and back and back again is.....Hershey Kisses. I just can't get them out of my mind! Other times it's donuts or some other type of chocolate. It's horrible! It's just a bunch of sweet stuff that I want! It's killing me!

I usually try to eat something healthy instead. I like to eat apples and carrots instead, so that's been helpful. Just have to make sure that I keep my stockpile up!

However, yesterday I had the hugest craving for some cheese. Not the yucky shredded cheese we get from Costco (the smell is not very pleasant to me right now), not the yucky fake cheese for sandwiches, but I really wanted some real, yummy, block cheese. And, I really wanted a yummy homemade ham sandwich. Luckily for me I had to go to the grocery store anyway to get a few things and since David was close to the house, he said he would pick us up and we could all go. I got my cheese, but as we were loading the car, I realized that we had forgotten to buy bread....a necessity for sandwiches, but David assured me we had enough bread for at least 2 sandwiches. I wasn't quite so sure. In the end, he was right. HOWEVER, I hadn't defrosted any of the lunch meat we had, so I didn't get my ham sandwich after all. Instead, I had a tomato and cheese sandwhich with a side of apple and carrots. It was the yummiest thing I had eaten all day!

I took the meat out to defrost last night thinking I would eat it for lunch today, but as lunch time rolled around, I didn't want the meat. HAHA! Go figure. Oh well. David will have to eat the meat. I'm sure he won't have any complaints about it either. is Mother's Day in Mexico. Very exciting! Except, I totally forgot, so I didn't get my mom anything. I guess a phone call will have to suffice for this year.

I don't think there is anything else that is exciting enough to report about. Oh! Except for the fact my grandparents got back from the mission today! Whoo-hoo!! We'll see if they'll actually stay put this time! This was mission number 4 for them and they are getting up there in their years!

Other than's been a pretty normal day!

Since it's been about 3 months since I last posted, changes have been happening all over the place!

Little David continues to grow, grow, grow! He's gotten 2 back molars in on top and has a few more coming in on the sides of his mouth. It really explains his personality recently. Poor little guy. I really wish teething wasn't such a painful experience! I even mentioned to David that I thought babies should be born with all their teeth, even if they would look weird. He said, "Well, that would make nursing really horrible." "BUT, I told him, "If they had teeth, they wouldn't need to nurse!" I'm for it! hee hee!

David is super swamped with work. He's working about 70 hour weeks. I really never see him. I always quote Saturday's Warrior when he happens to be home: "Even when he's here he's not here!" He's always on the computer doing his work stuff or he's always gone doing his work stuff. It's been hard for me, but I know that he's only doing it for us. He really is a hard worker and I truly appreciate the fact that he will do whatever he needs to do to support us. I really lucked out in marrying him.

As for me, I keep busy trying to keep up with little David and run a home. I recently started cooking again-real cooking, which I wasn't able to do for awhile since it made me so sick, so I know David is happy about that.

We're moving again in August, so I'm going through all of our things again, getting rid of more stuff. This is a positive thing about moving. I LOVE de-cluttering! But, I really need to be in the mood for it in order to be successful. Otherwise, I find myself putting things in the "keep" box that I know I really don't want or won't use, always thinking: Just in case!

The other day, I was busy doing dishes and cleaning up the house when I noticed that little David was being a little too quiet for my liking. I turned to see what he was doing and this is what I found:

He LOVES books-just like his parents. This is not something new. He will usually go and find a book to read and keep himself busy. I will usually take the extra 2 minutes to stop whatever I'm doing to read to him, unless there is something that I really want to finish before getting interrupted again. I love these special moments-moments where I'm reminded of what being a parent truly means and how lucky I am to be one. It's moments like these that make up for all those "wish we could move on from this" moments that I have.
