A Chance to be Heard!

I'm just gonna throw this out there:

a) I'm so over med school. I'm so tired of it. Kimball has 18 months left of school. i feel like I do when I'm 38 weeks pregnant...the torture of being so close yet so far away! Tonight we had a conversation that went a little something like this...

H: Don't you wish you had a job and they were handing out fat christmas bonuses?
K: The Dr. I'm rotating with is getting a $30,000.00 bonus
H: What kind of bonus do Med students get?
K: $200, debt

b) This house situation couldn't have come at a worse time. I'm am craving the feeling of a warm, comfortable, inviting home, that puts me in the christmas spirit. Instead I am packing up every trace of our personalities, we are living with the bare essentials.

c) My kids will not stop crying. I know they are feeling the stress of the moving situation...they just want a normal every day life again. We have arrived at the "wooden spoon" stage with Mya...for now its just a threat, but I hate it.

Amidst all this, I am reminded that there are so many people out there who have no money at all with no end in sight EVER. There are people out there who don't have homes to fill up with warm nice things for the holidays, some don't have homes at all. And even still there are families out there who's kids are sick, hurt, or not with them anymore. We are so blessed, even though the Holiday season started off with some pretty unpleasant things, and problems seem to be coming one right after the other, we are still immensely blessed by our loving Father in Heaven who has a plan for us. Thanks to everyone who has helped us during this. We have some of the greatest friends ever! We love you!

I just love you and your optimistic outlook on the situation. Everything will be alright.

sorry! hang in there, it'll be worth it. And Heavenly Father certainly is mindful of you, and has a plan for you. Don't despair.

See you tonight. I'll have a hot cup of mormon social beverage waiting :)

Our trials only make us stronger and mold us into the people we are. I try to keep that in mind. I would say the worst part would be the kids crying but that is just my opinion.
Love ya!

Again...This too shall pass.

But in the mean time... smile, keep your head up, and only worry about what you are in control over.

I am so sorry! Sometimes life just bites. I'm assuming this means you found a place to live? I would love to help out -- packing, cleaning, watching screaming kids (nothing would phase me, honest). Just let me know.

Here's a funny for you. My word verification is : dorklen

Bwa ha ha ha!

Just yesterday I was hysterical with all that's been going on in my life. Obviously I'm not alone in the struggles of young adulthood but it still sucks. You stay positive which motivates me to do the same. Good luck with everything. I'm here for you if you need anything...just from a distance.

Holly, just remember that you are TOO FAST FOR LOVE! That should make you feel all better. PS my word verification is spidexi. . wouldn't that make a good band name? Not as fantastic as The Origins of Marla, of course, but grand just the same.
