My name is Lauren, and I live in the bubble. I am wife to Marshall, the biggest BYU fan in the world; and mother to Carly, our big girl, and Wes, our wild man, and Calvin, our new addition. I graduated BYU with a degree in Social Work, and I went forth to serve at LDS Family Services. I like scrapbooking and going out to eat at nice restaurants. I am fascinated by new cleaning products at the grocery store, so I have to shop in wide circles around the perimeter to avoid the temptation to buy. I love chocolate.

fireman's widow

so with marshall gone so much, i am finding that i have started talking to myself. now, this can be healthy in some cases, such as in therapy or working through particularly difficult crosswords. but in my case i find that i am starting to make comments to the open air about my drive home, what to have for dinner, or funny commercials on tv. i am just so used to having him around. i am a lonely, lonely girl. i call my mom 3 times a day, and when she started ignoring my calls, i began calling my dad at work because he always answers his office line. aaaahhhh!!!

so i decided to start a blog. russ does it (though not often). star does it. bryant does it. gabe does it. it must be a healthier outlet than talking to myself.

Lauren you are a silly girl. Why don't you just come over? Or call us? Or both? Next time you have the urge to talk to the wall, pick up the phone. I know you know the number.

Lauren, I'd say just keep on talking. Don't fret about it! If talking outloud occasionally can solve a crossword puzzle, just imagine the kinds of world problems you could solve if you kept talking outloud all the time. (Just don't send me your bill from the mental hospital in a few months, k?)

Call me up to play Settlers! For sure I will come right over. In fact, I might just come over anyway and join you in talking to your wall with you. I think my wall is giving me the silent treatment.
