I suppose I must be in a negative disposition. Because I'm doing an awful lot of complaining! And it's all about the most unimportant things! But I'm bothered, and so I write.

Another thing I completely have no respect for: poor grammar! I admit, a lot of times I'll think a word and begin to write it. But, it I don't know the correct spelling I decide to opt for a synonym. (*ahem* baby kangaroo tribbiani) but spelling isn't so much the issue, unless it's a very common word. I really cannot stand it when people use "their", "they're", and "there" mixed up! Same with "your" and "you're" or "then" and "than". Now I could explain the grammatical rules of each of these, but if you don't know them by now, you probably won't ever know them! To me it seems so simple. It's ingrained in you from grades 3 through college! You're required to take English classes every year in school. No exception. I just don't understand. It seriously lowers my opinion of a persons intelligence when I notice that. Now, one time is excusable. Maybe twice. But most people I know who make this error do it every time without fail. That is sad. And at my time of life, most people I'm talking about are out of college. Come on America! Get your smart on!

Now I admit, a lot of times the one grammatical error I myself make us with apostraphes. I'm not sure when it's supposed to be plural or possessive. I know how to do conjunctions no problem, but I can never remember when an apostrophe is needed when it's possessive or when it goes after the "s" like for "Jesus'". Make sense? That confuses me. Again, I just yet to sidestep those generally when writing.

In other news, I am finally started to feel sad that my friend, Danielle, is pregnant and I am not. I am so happy for her and cannot wait to play with that little baby boy! And sometimes it doesn't seem like that long until it's our turn! But then I think about the fact that once we get pregnant it will take nine whole months before the baby is actually here for us to hold and play with! That makes it so much longer! Maybe I'll try to convince Matt to push our start date up another few months! I don't think he'll go for it. I agree, three years is good. But if you wait for that then it's basically four years before baby! I think baby right at three years sound just about perfect! I don't think he'll go for that idea though. Sigh. I can be patient. One more year. (which is very exciting!)

Ummm... I totally just realized that our lease begins this next week! Yay! I'm going to try to pack up as much as possible so I can move a couple carloads over before we leave for California! Then when we get back hopefully we can get everything else taken care of in just a couple of days! Maybe even one day if all goes well. I am sooooo ready to move! It will be a wonderful day!

God is so good.
