Today (well actually 2 days ago was today when I started this post) 9 years ago my family was sealed for all time and eternity in the Spokane Temple...Bryon and I both took out our endowments together and following the session we knelt together as a family around the alter, Mom, Dad, Keith, Bryon, Joette, and me holding hands, and embracing a moment we had been waiting for a long time to happen...wow what a beautiful day that was...
So...my mom is really sick...the worse sick she's been...now what?
I did something really crazy. I volunteered to sing a solo in church. I've been doing a lot of daring stuff lately...just because I want to. I used to perform all the time when I was younger but like I told Joette yesterday in the car- it has taken me almost 5 years of marriage/being a mom to figure parts of me out again...well anyway-I think I did alright even though I was a little nervous- these two recent return missionaries in our ward who happen to speak that sunday were funny- one who lives across the street from us said I need to open my windows more often and sing to the whole neighborhood and the other guy insisted we start a band- We would be called the W.T.- the abbreviations for our dinky little city we live in- he even had a gang sign for the W.T.- I love this kind of humor.
Joette is here for a week. It has been so amazing to listen to her play my piano...I feel like I have come home. We have had fun so far...Mckenzie loves her- follows her around everywhere. We went on a really cool walk today along the river...and talked about life and love...and then we waded our feet in the water for a second or so...got to love those chacos.
We celebrated Julia's b-day on Sunday. fun fun joy joy
I saw a shooting star this morning on my paper route...and a skunk!! I walked 10 feet in front of it before I noticed it! It scared me to death. His tail was straight up in the air and I booked it...you guys know how dramatic I can be sometimes so I seriously was freaked out for a couple minutes. I don't like delivering papers in the dark sometimes-
Those of you who know me quite well are aware of my sudden freak outs of startlments...Joette had a good take on me today. She said I am in deep thought often and so anything out of the ordinary kind of sets me off...I kind of agree with her.
