Lately I've been in a funk. I've been lacking motivation and have been dependent on others to do stuff for me. I can't get a job? Mope about it and hope something comes up. I can't get pregnant? Do nothing and be jealous of those who have babies. Yesterday was kind of a wake-up call. The lesson in Relief Society was about trials and the bottom line is that everyone is going to have to deal with rough stuff and our attitude is what can make or break the blessing that Heavenly Father has given us (yes, trials are blessings!). I decided to start this week right. I read my scriptures at breakfast, worked out for 45 minutes, applied for like 10 jobs, went to Wal-Mart for some baby supplies (Basal thermometer, pregnancy tests, ovulation test tracker thing), went to the DMV (the last time for a long time I hope!), and tidied up/ran Roomba. Today, I took charge of my life. It feels good and I hope I can keep at it!

In other news, this came in the mail today...

A little piece of my soul died when I turned in my NC license last week, but at least I don't have to carry around the 8.5x11" piece of paper "transitional license" anymore. The guy at the DMV laughed at me when I used it earlier today.

Also, I am really digging this band, and this song especially. Canada got something right...
