nothing to blog about

it’s been over 2 months. i know. i just always want to blog about the same thing. but i can’t. it’s depressing and too personal. no point in being mrs. depresso of the century. so i thought i’d grace you with a quick little update to hold you over for the next few months (or perhaps sooner). that is if anyone even still reads my blog?


-had old roomies visit for another roomies wedding (SO FUN!!!!)CIMG3855

-sold our van and the camry :(


-bought a 2003 toyota corolla which is very enjoyable excellent indeed

-had an enjoyable thanksgiving with ry’s fam


-got my wisdom teeth out…still recovering

-became a licensed social worker. that’s right. i’m now Jacquie Bedke, LSW. CRAZY!

-started my first social work job. i work at a partial care. i basically teach social skills to children ages 4-8 w/mental health problems (and plenty of other issues). it has been EXHAUSTING and i came home in tears for weeks. but it’s becoming very rewarding. it feels good to be a positive role model for kids who don’t have one.  i heart “my kids”.

-had a great Christmas with ry’s fam. we were spoiled by both our families!!


-celebrated our 3 year anniversary. it’s hard to believe it’s been 3 years. it’s gone by so fast! but it just keeps getting better and better. love you babe!

-oh and work, work, work.


-celebrated the new year with some excellent fort and snowman building. cuddled for about 72 hrs straight. it was great!

-work, work, work and work. oh and sleep. and paperwork. fun!

-ry went to vegas for work, or should i say fun??

-decided 95% of the people we know are pregnant.

-been sick about every week. it comes with working with kids i guess. it’s a constant roller coaster of sickness. feeling good monday. by friday i’m on my death bed. recover over the weekend with movies and sleep. repeat.

So to my dear friends, who i’ve so rudely neglected (you know you’re out there)…

i officially have no social life. i wake up, work, do paperwork and lesson planning, spend an hour with the hubby, sleep and repeat the next day. i think of you…i promise. daily. and i wish i would just pick up the phone and call and chat or plan a date, but i admit defeat. i have no energy. barely enough to be up this late. forgive me! and maybe one day (soon, i hope!) we can resume our friendship like normal human beings. as for now, i must be a workaholic. i must.

Jac - I am so proud of you and your strength to keep pushing forward. Just remember I am here for you whenever you need me! Keep working hard and good things come to those that wait! I have to keep telling myself that everyday.

First your hair is getting SUPER long and looks amazing!
Second yay for having a rewarding job, but it sounds exhausting! I hate the work/sleep/work some more combo it can get soo overwhelming.
Third I love you and I can't believe you've been married 3 years.. time goes way to fast!! and apparently we are all getting old.

Heather said...

Enjoyable excellent- I love that you still use it :) So good to see an update from you! I miss you so. And I love you & I think you are fabulous times 50. *HUGS*

Poulsen Family said...

Dear Long, Lost, Workaholic Friend,
I miss you. So glad you brought your blog up to speed with your life.
You are only partially to blame for our long over due conversation. I think to call you but then pass the idea off because I assume you're working- awful me!
Lets do lunch next week to celebrate your Birthday (I know you have to have time to eat).
Loves :)

I loved being filled in on your life these past few months-and wow you've been busy! Are you working at a partial care in Rexburg? I used to do PSR at one there, maybe it's the same one. You are a trooper!! And amazing! And you look great by the way! I hope you can get some much needed rest, stop getting sick (try Airborne?) and that you are doing well!

The Noalls said...

I did PSR in Idaho Falls and Blackfoot, and I can TOTALLY relate with coming home in tears more often than not. I only lasted two months in that job. I am so impressed that you're pushing through it! GOOD JOB! :)

Lindsey said...

I am glad you are to the point where you love your kids...even if they get you sick! YAY!!!

72 straight hours of cuddling makes me very envious!

Haley and Jon said...

I check your blog! Don't give up. I am glad you are feeling better about you job. It has to be so emotionally draining! You can make it.

The Gardners said...

Jack pack . . . I love you! The end.

The Bradshaws-- said...

Jacquie, I think 95% of the people I know are pregnant too...wierd! I hope you are doing alright, I have been meaning to give you a call but keep procrastinating.

The Musson Family said...

I love reading your blog. So don't stop updating when you have time. Hang in there girl it will get better. Keep up the good work. We are so happy you are starting to like your job. I love you and miss you tons. And I can see by the response, others love you too.

The Musson Family said...

Jared, Brittany & Ethan said...

it has been too long and from the sound of your last've been pretty busy!!! we should get together soon, maybe in IF. i could always use an excuse to get out of the house!!

Kapri said...

I read your blog! And I'm not pregnant! I remember when I was working full time I did not want to talk to anyone when I got home! SO we need to get together Saturdays! I love you and miss you!

Aunt Hama said...

It's really good to hear from you. I love the pics included. You look fabulous! I'm sorry you can't blog about the things near and dear to your heart. I'm listening.

Natalie Warner said...

Aw Jacquie! Work is good, right? Right. Sounds like you need a break. Andy and I have a guest room. Come to SLC and stay a weekend and go to the Brian Reagan concert or something else fun. Come hang out with us. Get your mind off of work and...the other.... So sorry you continue to struggle with that. You're amazing! Keep having faith. I love you and miss you. Can't believe we didn't hang out while I lived so dang close. Hang in there. And seriously, come play with us for a weekend.

Emily said...

Hey Jaquie. Of course I remember you. How funny that you found us. I'm so glad you did. Thanks for your sweet comment. I hope you guys are hanging in there. I have thought about you guys these past few months. I wish the very best for your family. It will be fun to keep up with how you guys are doing. Keep in touch.

Emily said...

And sorry I misspelled your name.

Mare and Bri said...

You are funny and sound much like me. Ah the hum drum of life sure isn't always fun to blog about. And yes I dare say 98% of people we know are pregnant. I think I can name 5 people who are not pregnant or didn't just have a baby. Makes you crazy just being around all the hormones! Anyways keep posting cause we are still reading and INTERESTED in your life!

Kara & Levi said...

Where are you working?? Do you love it? Or hate it?? Haha. How the heck are you!? We really should get together or something. You're only a half hour away!
