Life is a test. We are not present on earth to just exist; we are here to learn. Life is a lesson. Love one another unconditionally. Love thyself unconditionally. We spend our whole lives learning to do this. Some succeed and some never have a clue. I'm trying. Love my fellow man. Don't react and don't always have to be right. This is one I'll have to work on for the rest of my life. Appreciate each day and recognize positive and negative as a part of life's experiences. Look around me and see life at it's best. The joys of living come as you strive to achieve your dreams. Its the quality of each day that is important, not the distant dream once achieved. Teach and nurture my children. You can never give them too much love. -Randa Jex 1/1/94

Okay scratch what I said yesterday about the granite. We have decided we like but don't love that granite sample so we are heading to Monroe this evening to pick our slab from the distributor. There are 4 others that have more depth that we are interested in. I think it is cool that you get to choose the exact one that you get.

Well the dreams have started. Right before we got married I started having dreams about any and every wedding logistic. In the past 3 nights my dreams have ranged from the best technique to paint the drawers and bead board, how I will decorate the bar for Christmas, and last night was by far my favorite. I dreamed that we unwrapped the stove (pictured in the post below) to find that it was 6ft tall by 18 inches wide. Instead of having 6 burners it had 2 griddles and it was nasty like it had been used. We tried returning it but we couldn't so we had to build the cabinets around this awkwardly large unit and I had to use a ladder to cook. Oh man- I gotta start drinking before bed to mitigate my wild dreams.
