The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

The good:

Last week Kent and I celebrated our "dating/engagement" anniversary.

August 7th, 2006- I was giving up on the idea of Kent and I dating exclusively and he surprised me by wrestling me to the floor and planting a wet one on me. The best part was when he sat back and said, "you are going to get me in trouble."

August 7th, 2007- I was giving up on the idea of Kent and I getting married and he surprised me by driving me out to the foothills and planting a ring on my finger.

August 7th, 2008- I was busy getting my 1st cavity drilled and filled, and Kent was home working on a new song for me and surprised me by taking me out to dinner. We joked that we should plan something "big" for the next year, like having a baby on the 7th!

August 7th, 2009- No baby yet, but Kent surprised me again with new earings, and a lovely letter in our journal. All this AFTER I was a bRaT to him ALL day!

The Bad:

Our Property Management company got completely shut down yesterday by the Department of Real Estate. Yesterday was a great day! Luckily we have a family friend who works for an AMAZING Real Estate Attorney who is helping us out.

The Ugly:

Kent and I had our 1st childbirth class on Monday. All of the classes in our area are booked, so we headed down to Casa Grande. There is a very colorful group of people having babies in the next few weeks :) I am SO glad that I don't have to live there or deliver at that hospital. Yikes! Out of about 20 couples there, about 6 of us were married. We made some good friends- the non-english speaking couples, the boyfriend with the top of his pants coming just above the knees, and then all the girls not practicing common sense at the ripe old age of 16.

Ouch! I'm being judgmental. I'll just stick with the term "colorful." :)

We can't believe we're only about 30 days away from D-Day. Woo-hoo!

Hang in there - she'll be here very soon. Sorry about the real estate company; hopefully the attorney can help you guys out with that.
Thinking of you both and wishing you the best these next few weeks!
