My Government- Actually working backwards?

As most of you know Ray and I are patiently waiting for the government to let us know when we can get married. We have a receipt number that they kindly gave us when they received our application. This doesn't actually mean they are processing anything, just that they received it. However, with this number I am able to go to their website and track what dates they are currently working on.

Yesterday while checking things out I had quite the shock. When I checked the website on August 3rd of this month they were processing March 6th's applications (ours is July 10th). However yesterday when I checked, as of August 25th they were processing February 23rd.

Could someone please explain to me how this is possible? Can it be true that our government has actually started working in reverse? Say it isn't so!!

Hopefully this is just some sort of typo that will quickly be corrected so we can actually know where they are in processing these things.

Don't worry that when I called their hotline that the woman there told me she had "no information" about it, but that she had already received a few calls regarding this same thing and would let her superviser know. What a comfort indeed.

Sisters, Soccer and Oh yeah......BECKHAM!

Sydnee Nicole will soon be leaving us to head to the St. G for some sweet college action. Because this is the case, she and I decided to have a last hurrah at the Real Salt Lake vs. Real Madrid soccer game held at Rice Eccles stadium on Saturday night.

The reason we were so keen initially could be summed up in one word...... Beckham. Lest any of you need a reference please feast your eyes on the picture to your left.

So obviously we knew immediately that we would have a good time. Sydnee borrowed some binoculars from H.B. because as she said, "a good stalker always brings their own equipment." She then proceeded to ogle him with her binoculars for most of the game.

Clearly I wasn't expecting to get much more out of this game then a fun night with my sister(which it really was). Surprisingly I found I had more fun than expected. The thing is, I actually got into game itself. I just really found myself being entertained in plenty of ways that had nothing to do with Beckham.

In fact I liked it so much I might even consider myself a fledgling fan.

So many things have combined to bring me to this moment that I feel I can't let it pass with out a few shout outs.

First to David Beckham- Dave, thanks for being so hot. It was this hotness that sucked me into the sport in the first place.


Second to Dave Checketts and Sandy city- Guys, thanks for coming to a not so official (but we all have high hopes) agreement that will allow my love for this sport to develop.

Missing Ray

Today Ray has been gone for 2 weeks and although we have been apart before it's much harder this time around than it's ever been.

Ray and Lindsay at the Lodon Bridge (our attempt at a self portrait with the disposable camera)

When we went down to Bullhead City, AZ and St. George in May we bought a disposable camera and snapped a few Photo's. I just had them developed and picked them up this week when I was out and about and it made me miss him all the more

That same trip we went out and hiked at Zions and had mucho fun. Here is Ray striking a very dashing pose.
