So Blessed



Had some ups and downs this week but we are ending it with all ups. The health insurance problem is solved, because Josh's old boss gave him an offer too good to refuse. He's going to beat his current salary, pay for all his gas, normal health insurance, a car to use, and pay for us to relocate 2 hours north. So we're moving in a few weeks!
My clogged milk duct... turns out I've paid ahead to my O.B. so any postpartum visits are paid for. So I was still able to go get an antibiotic, and I'm feeling quite swell. Also, my friend Katie is letting me borrow her Medela, and it is FREAKING AWESOME. I have a manual that doesnt work for me at all but I love that Medela. Thank you Katie! You are such an awesome friend and I'll miss living only 4 miles away!
Next blessing (Is this #7? I dunno, I've lost count) A new volleyball club approached Josh and asked if he wanted to coach the 17 year old girls. He coached a team earlier this year and it was a friggin' blast. The girls are awesome and we get to go to fun tournaments in Vegas, Denver, and Southern California (shoutout to all our friends and family in those areas!), hopefully I can be a chaperone again this year. Plus, it's a little extra income so that's nice!

Since I am able to pump now, I was able to leave Kaius with my mom tonight and Josh and I went to the temple. It was my first time away from him, and boy did I miss him!!

Kaius now sleeps 5 or 5 1/2 hours at night, then feeds, then sleeps 2-3 more ours. Sleep is heavenly!

Oh, and I finally started reading Nie Nie after seeing her on Oprah...I keep having this urge to call Josh "Mr. Brecheisen" on my blog.

So cute! And congrats on the job, that is GREAT! Love good health insurance :) And I found Nie Nie last year right after the crash...and stayed up for like 3 days reading the whole blog. I have been reading her sisters while Nie was in a coma and then kept reading both of them once she was back to blogging. Love their blogs :)

I can't believe I find out from your BLOG that you're moving. LAME O! hahha... but that is way exciting for Josh... you'll have to call and give me details! And we'll have to hang out before you move!

How wonderful...I am so happy for all those blessings. You deserve it, Carly. I can't wait until Lauren is done with Volleyball so she will have some time to be able to get more of Josh's coaching tips. She wants to really work hard off-season and come back super awesome next year. He helped her so much in that short time!! He will be a fantastic coach!!!! Jerry was really impressed with him. You are a fabulous couple. See you next week :)
