I can't believe it's been two weeks since I last posted. I could say the old standby "Wow, it's been busy but I'm sure my little handful of readers are tired of hearing that. So, I'll just say....I'm baacckkkk....LOL
Let's see, what has been going on. Let's start with a quote from Blake. I really like those. Coming home one day he was firing away question after question. Hardly taking a breath in between. So, I made the comment "Sheesh Blake, you sure do ask a l0t of questions" and he said "Duh mom, I'm a kid, I have a lot to learn" Well, he's got me there. :o)
I was lucky enough to go to a sealing Saturday morning of a sweet couple in our ward to their adopted baby. Of course I cried as I sat there seeing myself kneeling with my family in a couple of months. We have set the date. We will be sealed together for time and eternity on October 11, 2008. Tim is having his temple classes and we are trying hard to keep the adversary at bay. I thought it was tough before I went to the temple but WOW does a certain someone not want this to happen. I am doing my best to do all the simple things, such as prayer, scripture study, family home evening etc. I will leave the rest up to the Lord. He knows how much we want this and I know we will make it. Our friends are from Utah are going to come. They will have then seen this thing come full circle. From them teaching me, baptizing me, being at my first temple trip, Tim's baptism and now our sealing. It's going to be an amazing day.
Speaking of the gospel, I am starting to figure out that the one thing you can always count on in this church is change. I'm not so good with the change but I'm trying. So many families are moving out of our ward. They say the want to be closer to their families but I just say they are traitors. No, I get the need to be close to family. But some of these people have been in my ward since I joined and I love them dearly. I'm thankful for the Internet so we can keep in touch.
My calling is keeping me pretty busy. With so many people moving out it's hard to keep all the callings filled. Today, we had 2/3's of our teachers gone. Part of that is summer and part of it is people moving. It will get better once we get some of these filled and settle in a bit more.
There is more to update you on but I need to get going. I promise to not let so much time pass before I make it back again.
**Update** After reading this I have decided the title can be two fold: I have been away "too long"and this post is "too long" LOL
**Update part 2** I can't believe I forgot to wish my sweet hubby Happy Birthday. His birthday was on 8/8/08. He is 19 if you ask him but if you are into reality he is 37 years young. Happy Birthday my honey. I lerrvvv you and I lerrvv that dumb dog.
**Update part 3** I've been gone awhile, cut me some slack. I bought Tim ROCK BAND for his b-day and have been totally rocking out. Turns out I'm a rock star and I didn't even know it. Tim is a guitar savant or something. I love the Wii.
