|Sport's out there somewhere!|
I meant to post on Saturday, truly I did. The football game was awesome! Sport's team won 19 - 6. He did an excellent job knocking over a kid who had about 30 lbs on him. Then after the game I rushed home, picked up Crafty, and took her to an audition. She has been dying to be in a play for a couple of years now, but the timing just hasn't been right. I'm not sure it's right now either, but she really wants to do it, so we will make it work somehow.
After her auditions, we drove home, ate some lunch and headed out again for the store this time. I took Princess with me as a special treat because she actually passed her driver's written test on Friday! First time! I was so proud of her. Now she can drive on her learner's permit for six months before she gets her real license. So her treat was a trip to Sam's Club. (OK, I know I'm a loser, but she was excited...) We were grabbing groceries and stuff for Cub Scout Pack Meeting tomorrow.
|Me, waiting at the auditions.|
When we got home there was just a little time to get ready for Stake Conference. We had Elder M. Russell Ballard at our conference because they were changing our Stake Presidency. He is an excellent speaker. Then my sweetie, the Dog Walker, Teach, and I all went to the Village Inn for a late supper.
Sunday dawned bright and early and we dragged all the kids up and out the door for conference. We arrived almost an hour early, hoping to get a soft seat, but they were already taken. While we were waiting for the music to begin, the Dog Walker got up and made his way to the restroom. He came back a few minutes later and took his seat. I hardly paid any attention until my friend who was sitting several rows behind me sent me a text.
|Swimming or eating?|
I stepped into the hall and noticed that the stake clerk's office was open. These men had clearly faced this dilemma before and offered me a stapler...a missionary's best friend...
I sent my sweetie to the restroom with the Dog Walker and they re-emerged several minutes later with some success. I returned the stapler and we enjoyed the rest of the meeting. When it was over, the Dog Walker leaned over and complained, "The staples didn't work!" At that point I noticed they were pulling through the fabric. We got through the ordination with someone just walking close behind him at all times...sound like a story I told once before?
After that we drove home to prepare for my sweetie's birthday party. His birthday is really the 28th, but with that being pack meeting, we had to celebrate on Sunday. I still had a cake to make, food to prepare, and gifts to wrap.
All went well and he loved the Ipod I bought for him. But I was tired and I slipped off to bed without writing my post. (OK, maybe it really was my fault that I haven't updated you...)
Then I was planning to get on first thing this morning, but my sweetie decided to work home today since he had a dentist appointment this morning for a toothache he had been nursing all weekend. Unfortunately, his computer wasn't working so he had to use mine. Then the peaches on the porch began calling my name and we worked on those all morning. We finished with somewhere around 60 quarts. I still have a box of small ones left, but I'm thinking maybe some jam. I hope they will make it til Wednesday since I have to pull the rest of pack meeting together, including 144 cupcakes I have to make!
