On Friday, after I got off work Josh, my mom and I were going down to Salt Lake to go to dinner with my aunts and us girls were going to see Twilight while Josh went down to Pleasant Grove to a Jazz party. When I got home Josh had big eyes and said that he got laid off! I had heard that Sunshine Terrace was going to be doing some lay offs but I never thought they would lay off my husband. He was so sad and just felt horrible. He kept telling me how sorry he was and I kept telling him it wasn't his fault. He didn't do anything to deserve it. I just felt sick to my stomach thinking how terrible it was to lay off people off right before the holidays. I felt so bad for Josh. So he decided not to go down to the Jazz party. I still decided to go down to see Twilight. I took my camera with me but was too upset to try to look happy in the pictures so I didn't take any.
Then on Saturday we had the results for Josh's Ultimate Loser competition. He has worked so hard for the past 8 weeks. I haven't seen him very much because when he wasn't at work he was at the gym. I just had a warm body next to me in bed each night and saw him early in the morning when I was going to work and he was going to the gym. He came in second in the competition, he was totally robbed. Josh was ahead of this other guy by over 4%, but the guy cheated and lost 25 lbs in one week! That is not medically safe, nor is it possible without cheating. I was so upset, I am still disappointed in the people in charge of the competition for allowing someone to win when you know they cheated. It's just not right. But everyone came up to Josh telling him what an inspiration he is. I'm so proud of him. He has done awesome and he looks so good!

We went down to Salt Lake after the results because Josh wanted to see his family since they haven't seen him while he's been losing this weight. We went and saw his cousin Suzanne's cute little girl, Brynn. Then we went to spend the rest of the day with Shannon, Arnold and the kids. We had so much fun with them. We went to the mall to get Josh some new clothes for his skinny little body. We went back to Shannon's to hang out and our little nephew came over. Tycen is so big, we haven't seen him since his birthday party in July. He is so cute, it was great to see him.

We went to my mom's for dinner on Sunday. Josh has been wanting her Spicy Cashew Chicken for a while now so she made it for him since he can eat what he wants now. It was fun to hang out with my mom and dad.
It was such a crappy weekend, I just thought you know what, we can't take much more! I know everything will be okay because I know God is always watching out for us and when one door closes another door opens. But it just sucks.
But on a lighter note.....
This movie was AWESOME!! I loved it. The characters were perfect and the chemistry and electricity between Bella and Edward was so romantic. Can't wait to see it again.
