So when the new year rolled around I decided to set some goals- super original, I know. One of them was that I was going to do a better job keeping up on the blog. I even thought up some really witty things to post about the New Year/my new commitment to blogging.
Sure enough, all of those witty thoughts in my head were pushed aside by more banal preoccupations. Like cooking dinner. And sleeping. Oh and the ever important and ever growing amount of laundry that needs to be done.
And then it hit me----> New Year=/= New You. The magazines lie, people. The New Year does not magically mean a clean slate. Those piles of laundry from Dec 31 roll over to Jan 1 (and sometimes to Feb 1, if we're being honest with ourselves). And you know what? I'm glad. I like my life. In fact, 99.99% of the time I love it.
So this is my ode to the New Year, and the old me. Still procrastinating, still doing the usual tasks. But hey, I did post to the blog. And its only February... wow, I'm impressing myself already.

Is it just me, or are IT guys looked upon as the Witch Doctors of our age? No one outside of the tech community is exactly sure what they do, but we all know that when something goes wrong, we better call them ASAP, otherwise our computer may spontaneously combust. To help remove some of the mysticism that surrounds what Sam, and all other IT people do 80% of the time when they solve our computer problems, here is a handy-dandy flow chart. Enjoy!

Twas the first day of September, when with my new spouse,
We started a blog, with the click of a mouse.
The settings were chosen and saved with care,
In hopes that our readers soon would be there.
Finally recovered from being recently wed,
With visions of wedding plans gone from our heads,
And time to do more than just live for a nap,
We settled on blogging, so here's a recap...
When as Freshmen in the dorms of BYU we met,
We figured a fellow Californian was a pretty safe bet.
So away from the Morris Center we went with a flash,
Figuring "real food" was definitely worth the real cash.
Then some time later, when push came to shove,
We realized "What the heck, we've fallen in love!"
Then Sam was called to Chile on a mission,
And our relationship was put on hold for a 2 year intermission.
So Sam preached the good word and fought the Patagonian chill,
While Jessica kept in touch through Anne and Bill.
Then last August Sam returned and no longer were we parted,
And back to Utah we went, right where it all started.
From Utah to Oregon with a view of the ocean,
Sam took Jessica so he could declare his undying love and devotion.
But Jessica wouldn't walk slow enough so he could get on one knee,
So he proposed as together they looked at the sea.
Jessica said "Yes" and Oh my! What chaos ensued,
With all the planning, there was so much to do.
But together we conquered the dress, registry and flowers,
With help from so many and millions of man hours.
On July 30th in the Sacramento Temple we were married,
And made it through the reception only slightly harried.
With our beloved friends and family we celebrated,
Now sealed for time and all eternity, we're elated!
So together here in Provo we live and we work,
And finally we have internet (now that's a perk!)
Updated we'll keep you as we see how this all goes,
Each day is a new adventure, as you all know.
Hopefully as you keep up with our blog you can see,
How beautiful we consider each moment to be.
And now as this reaches a full terabyte,
Let us simply say-
"Happy Blogging to all and to all a good night!"
