Random Facts

I now live my life in a perpetual state of hunger.

My awsomely-cool Guitar Hero game on my laptop has the song "Trogdor" by Strongbad. Macs could not get any cooler.

There are no Apartments for rent in Lehi.

The Academy Award Nominations are announced tomorrow.

This morning it was one degree. That is much too cold. Every time I go out in this weather, I get a headache, Thus, I wish I were in Tahiti.

I miss living with Krisling.

Tuesday I got up to say good-bye to my grandparents (who had stayed with us over the holiday and were flying home that day) and to go to work. It has been horribly cold lately so I went out a few minutes earlier than I usually do to warm up my car. I remember seeing the frost covering the car and thinking that if I really wanted the defroster to make a difference I should have started the car twenty minutes ago. Anyway, I went back outside ten minutes later and while I was closing the garage I glanced over at my car. Amazing!! My windows were all clear!! How wonderful! It was then I released that Drek's car was parked on the street and he was sitting in his front seat, finishing up a letter to me. This was amazing because 1) He would have to wake up way early to do that 2) It was so cold I don't know how he braved the morning and 3) I was really a brat the day before. So you can imagine how stunned I was to find that not only had he cleaned off my windows, but he had made me "the Hot Chocolate of Friendship" and written me a letter. It was so wonderful.
And I admit it, I was two minutes late to work. It was so worth it.

Jesus Wants Me For A Sunbeam

I finally have a church calling. I am now the primary teacher of seven very active three-year-olds. This group of children has never been in Sunday school before, they have always been in the nursery. Today was their first ever sunbeam class. It was trying to keep all of their attention, especially when my co-teacher seems to think that their attentions spans are twenty minutes, not three. But it worked out and I have the lesson next week so I think things will go somewhat smoother. The best part was during sharing time the teacher stood up to give her testimony and (true to form) started crying. She said "When I came in to church and heard your little voices I got all weepy." To which one of my sunbeams said very loudly: "Me too!" It was wonderful.

We're Back

And I'm back. apparently I missed a lot of national affairs: The death of President Ford and the hanging of Suddam.

But Mexico was well worth it. So much happened I'm debating wether or not to blog about the whole thing, just blog about pictures, or skip it altogether.
