I guess I'll update

Wow...I am so behind on this whole blogging thing... I'll try to catch you all up on what's been going on in the life of Jacob and myself...

Jacob was out of town all weekend. This was his first year to attend the annual "Man Weekend" trip...although I find the whole idea of "no women, children or pets" to be absurd, Jacob said he had a blast! I myself had a pretty good time too.

My first night alone was Luke's first night of puppy training courses. He was AWFUL...he needs lots of work..but i'll keep you all posted on the progress of that... I couldn't of made it through class #1 without the help of my mom!

I spent the first night at my parents house and I must say although I love sharing a bed with my wonderful husband it was nice to sleep and not have to worry about anything, no listen to sleep talking, snoring or sleep walking...no extra dogs in the bed...just me! It was great. The second night my sweet mom came over and we spent the night here at my house. We watched girly movies, played cards, ate a Biti Pie,  a blizzard, The Plaza, a sopapilla, and apple turnovers...Needless to say it was a very healthy unhealthy weekend.... but it was fun!!!!

Jacob finally got back into town and we took all of Sunday to rest and recover, Jake was exhausted and I made him a yummy enchilada dinner to welcome him home! Then he woke up this morning sick. He had a small fever all day and rested in bed off and on. I think he is feeling a little better now and I'm glad!!! Hopefully tomorrow will be better.

Our weekend was fast paced and fun! I enjoyed the time by myself with my parents...turns out after all these years they are pretty cool people!! :) I am very thankful for them!! And it sounds like Jacob had a lot of fun too...maybe to much fun if you ask me! But we were thankful for our weekend experiences and glad to be back together in our home with our puppies! Hope you all have a great week!

Here's the deal...

    Every family has it's own share of struggles....issues....skeleton's in the closet if you will. Our family is no exception to this rule. Jacob and I have had a rough relationship with the Reinbold side of the family for over a year now. Back before we were even engaged this went sour, honestly Jacob and I don't know what really happened. But things have been said and done that have made our situation to far gone. We have prayed unceasingly about this situation and we have done our part to meet, talk, and share our feelings. However hearts are not ready to have a relationship. We serve a mighty and big God who can fix ANY situation, however right now we feel like we've been told to be still.
   Jacob and I rest very easy at night knowing that we've forgiven (for our own sake and our walk with the Lord) and that we as Christians have to stop and rest. Marriage is hard, especially the first year of marriage, especially when you are so young. We are so proud of where we are in life. Married, house, dogs, school, jobs...we are doing great, but at this point of our lives we need to be filled with support and love. It seems like the blog (before going private) turned into a source for people to keep unnecessary tabs on us, it turned into a source of gossip and even lies came from it.
   That was never the point of the blog. I think it's such a great idea to have a blog. It documents all the fun and exciting and even the hard times in life. It captures photos and videos of where we are at this time in our lives and it's something  that we can have forever. We can come back and show our kids someday the pictures of us when we were their age, we can look back at our experience of buying our first home. It is precious to me and something that I don't want to be taken advantage of. I hope each of you who reads our blog remembers why we have it. I hope you are encouraged by our stories, testimonies, and life events.
   Jacob and I are not giving up. We are still praying and working hard to restore the relationship that was once there..hopefully you all can join with us to pray for our families. All our families; because I know I am not the only one who has a rift...it's a season in our lives that we are looking forward to moving past. Until then.....we'll be praying....
_thanks for supporting us_


Also--On a lighter note, I have already heard from some of you about having problems logging in. It says something about a password being incorrect. We are going to remain private for a while- but we might eventually change the URL address and make it open again- Sorry if it's inconvenient right now. We will email notify each of you who requested to continue reading  whenever we decide to change something. Thanks for reading!
Have a happy Monday.

Going Private

I have a fellow blogger buddy who decided to take her profile private...I find that to be a very good idea, especially considering who has been reading our blog.

From now on if you want to continue reading the Reinbold Family blog you have to send me your email address and I will add you to the list of people allowed to read the blog.

This will go in effect Monday morning, so between now and Monday morning you can comment to this post and tell me your email address or you can email me directly Maci4109@yahoo.com to be allowed access to our blog.

Please keep in mind that this blog was never meant to be a source of gossip or things that were untrue. I think this will help the wondering eyes of those of you who should have better things to do, than check up on myself and Jacob--- maybe now you all can be focused on your job instead of mine and Jacob's blog. If there are any questions I would LOVE to answer them....

**Don't forget to send me your email address!
