Sometimes saying nothing is the best thing for everyone involved. Take last week for instance. I was sitting in RS and the sweet lady conducting was also in charge of the lesson. Her lesson was a video which she planned to show us on a large screen TV that is to be checked out from the library.
Here's where it gets interesting. This sweet lady didn't get to the library in time to get the large screen TV. The only TV left was a TV the size of a postage stamp (her words). The large screen TV was checked out by the Bishopric.
Rewind to sacrament meeting.
The only member of the Bishopric stands up and excuses the Bishop and Second Councilor as they are both out of town visiting family. The First Councilor is the only member of the Bishopric in the building.
Fast forward to the present.
The sweet RS Councilor who is conducting/teaching/setting up the TV begins a monologue as she sets up said postage stamp (her words) TV.
Her: I'm so sorry sisters that we are stuck with this TV. The Bishopric has the other one. They got to it first. We are stuck with this one. I hope you all can see it because the Bishopric has the large screen TV.
Me (thinking to myself): What the what? (just kidding! I just stole that from Shelle. It will keep me from using bad words....especially in church). Did she just say "the Bishopric"?
Her: I'm so sorry sisters with the delay. I'm so glad we had Bro. X here to help us fix this TV otherwise we would be in trouble because the Bishopric has the other larger TV.
Me (thinking to myself): Seriously, did she just say "the Bishopric" again?!?! My hubby is the only one here today....he IS "the Bishopric" today!
Sister A to Sister B: You know my sister says that women in the Church are repressed.
Me: (Biting my tongue until I tasted blood.)
Her: Ok sisters, I think we got this all figured out. I hope you can all see this because the Bishopric has the other large TV.
ALRIGHT! I was going to investigate "what the what" "the Bishopric" was doing with the large screen TV.
I marched down to the High Priest room. No "Bishopric". I was pointed in the direction of the Priesthood room. I opened the door and through a series of sign language motions managed to get "the Bishopric" to the door.
I asked "the Bishopric" aka the hubby, what the large TV was being used for and was told that the YM/YW were in a joint meeting and were using it.
I returned to my seat to watch the life of Joseph Smith on the postage stamp TV to the sounds of sighs and humphs because Sister A couldn't see the screen. I guess she was feeling repressed today.
During the video on Joseph Smith I visualized myself standing up from my seat and setting the class straight on the whole TV situation.
I knew it was time to leave.
Some things are better left unsaid. Do you hear anyone speaking? I don't!
This is our family right now. We have one son who is in Madagascar serving a mission. He has 5 months left. Our other son pictured here is a senior. Our time with him is winding down. This blog is for these men in my life. I love them with all of my heart! They mean more to me than words can describe....sometimes I am speechless (in a bad way too). That is all part of life. At the end of the day we love each other for each other, good, bad and not so pretty!
I am the mother of two awesome boys! One has recently returned from a mission for our church in Madagascar. Soon to be a Freshman in college.
The other is a Freshman in college and will be venturing out on a mission in the next year.
They have both brought me a lot of happiness and made me laugh! I am so blessed to have them in my life! They have had to go through things in life that some would feel are not fair, but they have not complained. They go through life with a smile on their face. They are a great example to me.
I am also the wife of an amazing man!!! Seriously! He does it all! He complains even less than my boys!!! I could not ask for a better companion than him. He is a great example to his sons. He works hard all week long, comes home and begins his work on our home and then continues to serve at our church. Yet, I do not feel neglected. He is there when I need him. He brings me lunch every day at work, he helps out at home, he loves me for me....what more can a woman ask for? Yep, I got him!!!
Can he be serious? Nope!
Our freshman....in college.
The Hubby (and his pal)
His only flaw....he doesn't know how to smile...hahahaha
OUR FAVORITE THINGS......
In the summer we LOVE to go to Lake Powell with my sister and her family. We have a blast there! There is never a dull moment whether it be from the kids, storms, bats or giant mice. We are constantly entertained by something or someone! Here are a few of my favorite memories.....
The Balloon Launcher
Many items were launched in 2005. Grapes, rotten tomatoes, live fireworks. ( I was the target for the fireworks.)
It was higher than it looked, especially for a scaredy cat like me. And by the way, I told Drew I was jumping, but didn't. He did!
My favorite place to be on a hot day! With one of my favorite nephews! (When he's in a good mood that is!)
A fun past time...watching others get their butt kicked on the molecule! Oh yeah!!!
Yep...the ride of my life....it hurt!
Bracing for the Storm
B-I-L and Hubby being pelted by the rain. The toys had to be secured!
The Many Faces of Hubby
Ok...he doesn't have many faces, in fact it's like pulling teeth to get a real smile out of him, so this makes this shot great!
