Mama's Update and Rambling

It's been a while since I just sat and blogged. This morning I have plenty of chores to do. But I don't have any pressing deadlines for the first time in weeks. So. I'm going to take a minute and just write. Hmmm? What to write about?:)

Well, there's a light at the end of this busy month's tunnel. I really hope that next December isn't so busy! But I won't count on it. There have been many wonderful moments this month too. If we could just find a way to poof the preparations for events into effect without having to do it ourselves, life would be so much calmer. I love all of the festivities. It's just the time leading up to it and cleaning up... uggg!

On Wednesday I had Young Women in Excellence. I am the first counselor in the YW presidency. Our president gave birth on Tuesday. So the night's event was turned over to me to lead. It was a lot of work. But thanks to all of the other leaders, it turned out really well!! The spirit was strong and the girls participated. We did a program by Jenny Phillips. The theme was "Light Keepers." The YW theme for 2009 is Be Thou an Example of the Believers. It should be a neat year. I'm starting to really get the hang of things in my calling. I don't feel like I'm floundering as much. So that makes it easier to contribute.

This month my house has most definitely been the most neglected element of life. Today I will catch up (I Hope!) and hopefully keep things up until we leave for SL on the 20th. Laundry is on the list too. It's hard having to take the laundry elsewhere to get it done:( Oh well...

Well, as I wrote in my last post, Leif got accepted to NAU. This is a very good thing because they have a BS program completely online so he can work and do school at the same time. A Must in our life right now. It's also nice to know the next few years are secure and planned.

Christmas shopping is pretty much done. It was fun. But I'm to the point that I feel anxiety each time we spend any money. However, the confirmed school loans help ease that anxiety a bit.

Well, I have put this day off way too long and rambled way too much. Time to face reality! Wish me luck!

I'm glad to hear that you're enjoying your calling and not feeling lost! I was called as a counselor in RS a month ago and I have no idea what I'm doing!
