bad luck

so it would seem that since moving to california, our luck has gone down the hill... and then some.
i started feeling bad for myself last night after dropping my week old new blackberry into the toilet and having it officially die.  feeling bad that now cade has a brick of a phone with no camera because he is such a good husband that he gave me his nice phone.  then started feeling some more bad because he has gotten 3 tickets since we have gotten here to california, and i got my car towed (it costs 250 dollars to tow your car here. did you know that?)  and who knew that in order to be in california, if you drove with any license besides a california license, it cost you 350 dollars? yep not us.  so i had a tiny pity party until i realized i am so happy with my husband right now.  he cheers me up, he makes me laugh, he kisses me over and over just because i cant get enough, even though im sure he gets sick of it.  we have amazing scriptures that we read and learn from every night, and im lucky enough to have a really smart husband who can answer all of my questions about them.  and believe me i have a lot.  plus we have really great families who love us, and i get to go home and see mine soon.  and we are healthy and just happy.  so i told myself to stop complaining and to appreciate what i have, and guess what, it worked!
