In a Rut

I need a new show to watch. My good friend Anna told me about FlashForward, which let me tell you is awesome, so I'm watching that. Unfortunately, however, this show is on the same night as ALL of my other shows. Which defeats the purpose. Dan and I are loving Community (thanks Blaire) and I love Grey's Anatomy and Dollhouse, but those are on Thursdays and Fridays. So, out of complete boredom, does anyone have any new cool shows that they watch that I can get in on? My favorites have all been canceled recently, i.e. Pushing Daisies, Chuck, and I am a girl who loves to watch her shows on her computer while doing homework. Help me out if you can!

P.s. This is a little incomplete, I am also OBSESSED with Glee.

We finally got to go home this last weekend. It was so much fun! I spent the whole day on Saturday hanging out with my mom and shopping. For Sunday my mom was asked to think of an experience to share about her mother in Relief Society. She was having a really hard time. Our lesson in RS was amazing and all about families and stuff and it just made me think about mine a little more. Everyone in my family brings something unique to the table and it just would not be the same without them. Also, it got me thinking about my mom and how thankful I am to have her. I couldn't have asked for a better teacher, role-model, and friend. So, because my mom had to think a lot about her mom, I thought a lot about her. She taught me etiquette, how to cook, how to clean, how to treat others, how to study, how to write, how to be loving, and the list goes on. I can't even describe how much love there was in our home growing up because of my mom and for that I will be eternally grateful. She is my best friend and the person I want to be the most like. She is my hero.

Mom- Mediator and Chores giver

Dad- Story reader and dishes-doer

Chris- Protector and Hugger

Jill- Peace maker and Ego booster

Justin- Comedian and Fight defuser

Lianne- Thoughtful and Forgiver of evils (mostly mine)

I am so thankful for my family. I can't believe how blessed I am. I won't even talk about Dan cause that would be WAY too mushy and gross.

So this last weekend was our fall break and General Conference. Needless to say, we were really excited about it. The plan was to go to Wichita and spend our long weekend at home with my parents. We were all REALLY excited about it. However, on Thursday I started feeling even more sick than usual, with a fever and everything, but I tried to blow it off. I felt even worse on Friday so Dan made me go to the doctor to see what was up. Low and behold, I had the swine flu. No joke. So, that sucked. Not only was I terribly sick but we couldn't go see my parents because I didn't want to get them sick. So so sad. Apparently because I have mono, my immune system is shot. Because of this I am more prone to get other viruses and infections. Fun right? My loving doctor told me this after we went in, and then added that it was really just a matter of time before I got the flu. Wow, thank you. That would have been nice to know. lol. Anyways, our weekend was just fine though, minus all the sickieness, because Dan really went out of his way to make it fun for me cause I was so bummed about not going home. He is seriously the best husband or man anyone could ask for. We are going home this weekend instead and I plan on not being sick then. Fingers crossed.

Other than that our life is pretty boring and we love it. Dan has been able to play basketball and soccer a lot the last couple of weeks so he's floating on cloud 9 right now. My brother, Justin, and his wife just had another beautiful baby girl named Camryn that I can't wait to meet! If she's anything like Elliette she'll be the most perfect baby of all time.

Oh, in case you were wondering, Dan is definitely not getting sick. We're pretty sure he's immune to the flu. And all other ailments. He's like superman.
