-Shalene Poulsen-

When I left High School in 10th grade I went traveling with my parents on a job called Historical Collectors Menus. I went to Washington to the Ocean, to Vernal Utah to the Dinosaur Quarry, to Oregon, to Montana.

After a the year came up, my parents health started to plummet. We ended the job and I finished up Seminary. I didn't graduate but I did the best I could to learn about every place we went. I found out I learned more on the traveling then I did in school.

In 2005-06 I got a job at the D.I. in Rexburg. I worked there from October to the end of June. Through the time of working at the D.I. I was saving up money because my father was going through Chemo treatments. He had a tumor between his stomach and spine.
At the end of June I left to go to Utah to be with my parents. My father was in the L.D.S Hospital about to go through radiation treatments. I was the only one in the family that wasn't pregnant or had little children. So I left the D.I and went down to be with them.
My Father was transferred to the Madison Hospital in October of 06 because the L.D.S hospital could do no more for him. I found out later on that they cured the cancer but his liver was failing. He passed away on November 19th 06.

My mother and I could not keep the house, so we had to move to my grandparents house in Ammon. We stayed there until April 07 where I stayed and mom went back to Ammon with her parents. I went to the singles branch there for almost a year and a half. When I met Tim.

Tim is from Montana and has just turned 31 on December 31st lol :D. We dated every day except one for 2 1/2 weeks. On July 26 he asked me to marry him. We were married in the Rexburg Temple on October 11 2008. We currently live in the Gladstone Apartments. Tim is going to School and working at the D.I until school is done. We may be moving but not sure where.

I am currently a stay at home wife. I keep my self busy with sewing, writing, cleaning the apartment, and playing on the computer. I love to be home. I am currently saving up money to go to school so I can finally get my G.E.D "shh, don't tell anyone" ;) So I can get my degree to become a seamstress. I write on the side and have almost finished my first manuscript. We are happy and loving the fact that we are both similar in many ways. Which is what I was looking for. :D

I am currently making a blog, pictures and information to come soon, check my blog.

Sounds like you've been up to alot! Congrats on your wedding, and good luck in getting back to school. That would be cool to be a seamstress, though I don't know the first thing about how to be one! Sorry to hear about your Dad.
