I Find Myself the Subject of Strange Conversations

Seriously, I find myself not only in the midst of strange conversations, but the subject of some very interesting conversations.

At church yesterday, I skipped Sunday School. I know, bad, but the room was PACKED and the only chair was in the very front of the room. I would have been more of a distraction than a help by trying to get to that chair. So, instead I headed out to the hall and waited out my time on the couch. Next to me was the wife of one of the bishopric members. See, I didn't feel quite so bad about skipping Sunday School once I saw Sister E.

I started looking at a spread sheet I need to figure out for my correlation meeting on Tuesday and Sister E. is reading. Through the door walks Bro. F. Bro. F has his daughter and granddaughter with him. He stops to introduce us to his family. He gets to me and says, "This one here is a great catch." I just kind of laugh. Sister E. pops up and says, "She is a great catch. If I weren't married, I'd marry her." Ummm, OK super awkward! But then, Bro. F. says, "I would too." Bro. F's daughter piped up, "I won't tell mom you just said that."

Enter my very awkward laugh and really wanting to just get up and leave.

Sister E., however, was not finished. She said, "I have a son who is 29. He's not good enough for you though." And at that, I faked the excuse that I needed to go to the restroom.

Next time, I might just cause a ruckus and sit in that chair at the front of the classroom.

Never let it be said that to dream is a waste of one’s time. For dreams are our realities in waiting. In dreams, we plant the seeds of our future.

What Happens When the Power Goes Out

Sunday evening there was a freak storm that rolled through the valley. I was at the 'rents house with the kiddos. The power went out for about 4 hours. What do you do with a 6 year old and 3 year old when the power goes out for 4 hours?

How about having a shadow guessing contest! Well, that's what we did at least.

It's Quote Week

"Don't you quit. You keep walking. You keep trying.
There is help and happiness ahead.
Some blessings come soon, some come late, and some don't come until heaven.
But for those who embrace the gospel of Jesus Christ, they come.
It will be all right in the end.
Trust God and believe in good things to come."
-Jeffrey R. Holland

A Gripe

I have a bone to pick. You know who you are. You are that person that hijacks my Facebook posts. You know, the one where I post something because I think I'm being clever or funny. And then you turn MY post around to be all about YOU. Not cool, not cool at all.

And that is all. And please, don't hijack Faceboook posts. It's just not nice.

The End.

Quote of the Day

“You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing which you think you cannot do.”

I've been a little bit MIA the last couple of weeks, and for good reason. To catch you up on my exciting adventures, here's what I've been up to.

- Girls Camp. Enough said, right?
- In case that wasn't enough said, it rained.
- A lot.
- So much in fact that our cabin flooded.
- I had no internet, cell phone, or ipod for a week.
- I admit, it was kind of nice to unplug.
- There was one close encounter with a family of deer.
- But they ran away from me.
- Being with the Stake, rather than the Ward, does make Girls Camp a bit easier.
- Home for the weekend and on to an airplane.
- This time, to Phoenix.
- It's hot here.
- But I haven't seen outside in nearly 2 days now, so I'm actually chilly.
- They keep the air conditioner on overload here.
- Work conventions are always tiring.
- And yet, I'm still up at 5:30 a.m.
- I can't wait for Saturday. Seriously, Saturday.
- Then I can come home and sleep.
