It's official!

I'm moving! I've been looking for jobs all over the country- and even outside of it in some circumstances and have come up completely empty.  It seems no one will hire me.  So, after a lot of thought, and consideration, I have put my name on this website and last night someone picked me! I can't believe it!

I am SOOOO excited about moving to Russia.  I know it sounds totally crazy and you will all think I'm a bit of a loon for doing it.  But, as a wise woman once said,

"Happiness in marriage is entirely a matter of chance. If the dispositions of the parties are ever so well known to each other, or ever so similar before-hand, it does not advance their felicity in the least. They always contrive to grow sufficiently unlike afterwards to have their share of vexation; and it is better to know as little as possible of the defects of the person with whom you are to pass your life.''

I have about a month to close up my affairs here and get things in order. I'll probably go to Idaho and see my family for some of that time and then leave straight from there.  I can't believe this is happening!  I haven't told anyone about it because I didn't want to feel judged, or hear the criticism that would surely come with it.

But just think of the opportunity! I'll be in a new place, learning a new language, seeing new things.  I'll be married! (weird) and have a chance to really share the gospel.  I know that things will work out for me. I have every reason to believe that he (all I know about him is that his name is Iosif -which I think is Russian for Joseph. See, what a good name!)  will accept the gospel. I imagin in a little over a year we will be sealed in this temple (Kyev, Ukraine).   I'm sure you're all thinking I'm off my rocker.  But you don't even know how excited I am!

What a great April Fools joke!! It's one of the best that I've ever heard about, you should feel proud.
Hey, I still have a present for you from Cami. What's your address so I can send it to you? Or do you just want me to take it to your parents' house?
You're such a goof! I miss ya, I'll have to come out and visit sometime.

((Enjoy your gospel-based mail order bride marriage and living in Russia!))

That's pretty clever :) I have to say, your blog is way too pretty to be by a "Bitter Harpy," and Geryn and I really like your music.

I'm reading this on April 2nd and thinking "WHAT?!" but I realized it had to be a joke when it came down to you marrying some man from Russia whom you don't even know---hahahahaaha!
