My family

I had a friend ask me about my family, so here are pictures of them. Above is most of my dad's family, with my grandparents Ruth and Don Zaelit at the top in the white shirts.
These are my mom and dad, Peggy and Matt.
Jennie is my adorable little sister.

A fun one of Jennie.My Grandma, Lenore Webb, and my parent's dog, Elroy.
Mom and Dad Brown, Julie and Kevin.
Grandma Ann and Grandpa Heber Brown.
Carissa and Tyler, Jared's older brother and his wife.
Jared's little sister, Megan, and her husband John and baby Thomas.
My adorable nephew Thomas.
Matt, one of Jared's younger twin brothers. Matt is funny and smart and very sweet.
Chris, the other twin, and baby Thomas. Chris is funny and knows how to fix anything.
My sisters, Megan Brown Hutchins, Jennie Zaelit, and Mandy Martin

Mandy is one of my best friends. This was at one of the non-alcoholic pina colada nights (NAPC) that the girls often threw. Mandy is currently serving a mission in California and will get home in February.
Oh, and my favorite picture of my parents:


I'm so tired. I'm sick of crying and sick of being tired. I hate that I can't even make it three hours without crying. Jared says he's so proud of me and making it through 2 hours and 53 minutes of church, and he says that I'm the best wife he could ever have. But sometimes I wonder - if I'm such a good wife, how come I didn't spend my time this weekend cleaning the kitchen or bathroom? Both of which seriously need it. I'm very glad that I have some doctor appointments this week. Hopefully I can find out what's wrong.

I am grateful!!!

I was reading on my friend Meg's blog the other day about how stressed she was and what did she do? She listed some of the things that made her grateful. I have been feeling very low lately, not necessarily stressed; but more depressed than anything else.

I am grateful for:
a loving husband who cooks and cleans for me.....a supportive mother who listens when I call to complain or cry.....a sister who can always make me laugh.....fallen leaves that I can crunch on the season.....loving friends who call to make sure that I'm okay.....books.....the Ensign.....scriptures.....when the weather gets cool enough to wear jackets and sweaters.....decorations for holidays.....a loving Heavenly Father who answers my prayers.....a loving Heavenly Father who doesn't answer my prayers the way I want him to.....Raven, Lily, and Milo the guinea students who love and teach me daily.....the color green.....being married to Jared.....the job and friends at nephew mother and father in Idaho who are always willing to listen and give dad in Utah who can fix anything, and can light up the room with his smile.....happiness.....
