Catch Up. If Blogger Will Let Me!
This new blogger has me pretty angry. I've been avoiding it because I lost a very long and detailed post last week, and because my time is so limited now-a-days, I boycotted the blog completely.But now I feel like we can try again. So much has happened! #1 turned 11 years old on the 21st. I've taught two amazing Gospel Doctrine lessons (and now I believe that Mosiah is probably my favorite book in the Book of Mormon). We've had a gajillion soccer games. There's been baby showers, Book Club, date nights, exercising in the mornings (again! With my daughters! Hooray!), eczema on the 2 year old (it's getting better), moving baby to his shared room with #5, date nights, laundry, ants in the kitchen (and ants in the bathroom), chronic bed wetting (not new), the elementary school fundraiser (a 5K! Where #1 ran it in 40 minutes --her first race, ever! Brandon also ran it (in under 32 minutes) and #3 ran the 1 mile), piano lessons, scrapes and bruises, rain, and watching a poor bird get run over by the car in front of me while driving (so sad!). I've also had a lot of things on my mind. Nothing new. Things like:*re-vamping chore responsibilities *Repentance *sleep I decided NOT to think about: *the upcoming election *the girls' room (oh. my. heck. How can two tweens be so messy!?) *the weeding I read some of the most amazing things: *MMM's series on the Whirpool of Spiritual Stupidity. It is fantastic. Seriously, so good. Read it! *Chantelle's continuing series on Learning to Submit. I honestly feel like she wrote it for me. I'm overwhelmed by it, to be honest. *The May 2012 Ensign! Of course, I haven't read all the April 2012 conference talks that dwell within it, but I have begun. Because it's a treasure trove, dear reader. Modern day revelation/counsel from Prophets, Seers, and Revelators. Pretty darn awesome, eh? Well, that's it for now. Nothing profound. Just catching up. I'll try to get back to all of my deep thoughtage soon, though. Because we all know that's why you come reading, right? Well, at least I can pretend... ;)
