Life is unfair

In my family there is a tradition that I hate! Kidney stones. Yep. I am 27 and I have them. My first passing of these rocks of hell happened June of 2010. Prior to that I had several uti's. May I just say these are awful! Anyone that knows me well knows I drink water like it's going out of style. I have four bottles of supplements geared towards prevention of stones and uti's. I take these daily. I also take cranberry pills every other day. But still I get them. I have been advised to not eat chocolate, sugary foods, flours, processed foods, or pastas. So, I am a woman that loves chocolate. This makes life terribly unfair. So what can I eat? Fresh fruits and veggies and lean meats. I am fine with this except the chocolate part. :(
You know what else you must limit? Sex. Yep that's right this tradition takes all the fun out of a woman. No chocolate and no sex! Life is so unfair. Also, no drinking. Yep, as if sex and chocolate weren't enough..now you can't even drink. Haha! So, drink 'em if you got 'em! Eat up your chocolate and your lover! I'll just be biting on a bell pepper and swigging water all while being abstinent. Life is so unfair!

2 years and still going

Today marks my 2 year anniversary to my husband Nathan. I feel safe with him and that's only part of it. I look at pictures from our special day and I can't help but notice we have changed. Already in two years. We have grown into our promises to one another. We depend on each other and our plans for our continued life are just unfolding. Steady jobs and mature routines have really helped, but so has starting over in a city that we only know a handful of people.
Have you ever taken a college course or maybe even been to a seminar or bible study, where you are asked to put down in an order your priorities? Many people put down family, religion, jobs, exercise (okay maybe that's just me), friends, animals, material items. You get the idea. My question to myself was how do I rank these priorities in my life? How do you? And I compare my list to Nate's.

Ponder that.
