This is an actual ad I cut out of our local paper. I couldn't help but laugh out loud and say to myself "Only In Utah." How rude can I be? I'm sure this Mindy Morgan was so happy that somebody found her scriptures, and what about Jean? A kind hearted person who took there time to run this ad in the paper.
On a side note, this is what we woke up to this morning. I so didn't want to go to church today and then this. I bucked it up and went anyway, but boy can I just say for the zillionth time..."I'm so freakin' sick of this weather."
I know you have all been thinking I have just dropped off the blog world...right? At least I have felt that way. My life has been so crazy lately. Running kids around to there various activities, running 2 business, actually running with this cool person, running to Idaho to see this sis, and a ton of other things that have been consuming all my time. I am hoping things will start to settle down a little...or not. I actually thrive off of this type of lifestyle, right? I do have some updates that will have to wait. Until later, y'all keep blogging away!
This week we have had some sad news in our family and it got me thinking again about all the things I should be grateful for. I have been meaning to do this for awhile. It is so easy for me to dwell on all the things that are going wrong in my life instead of all the blessings I have. So hear goes in no particular order... My wonderful husband who works so hard each and every day to provide for me and our family. I have NEVER had to worry about him not having the motivation to take care of us financially. My 5 healthy, beautiful, and smart kids. We have never had a kid in the hospital, stitches, or a broken bone.(Knock on wood.) A beautiful home in a beautiful neighborhood. The truthfulness of the Gospel. Living in the greatest country in the world and enjoying all of its FREEDOMS! Brothers and Sisters who I consider my BFF's. I like all their spouses a lot too. There are countless things I am grateful for. Just having the opportunity to spell them out makes me GRATEFUL.
Last night our great friends & neighbors called us at about 8 pm asking if Trent & I wanted to go get sushi with them. At first this sounded totally spontaneous and something I had never done before. After a REALLY bad week I was totally up to it. We ordered 3 different kinds of sushi : Las Vegas Roll, Mars, & Rainbow. Those 3 names alone should have been my first clue that I wasn't going to like it, but I had to try...and I did. Trent forced me to take a taste of the wusabi which just about blew me away. If you have never tried that stuff...stay away. To say the least I did not enjoy my sushi experience. I don't think I could ever talk myself into trying it again. I do have to say that the company was awesome and I have really been enjoying hanging out with our new best friends.
My kids all nagged me to death until I set them up with their own blogs. Now I know what you are thinking...WHY? And I apologize in advance to any of you(mostly relatives) who may get strange comments on your blogs from time to time. A couple of good things may or may not come of this. 1. They will get bored of the whole thing and move on soon. 2. I will get to read the deep thoughts of my 4 older children. Who knows, maybe we will start something. In the meantime I hope this doesn't ruin any ones blogging mojo.
