Just Life

I have been very brief in writing lately.  Shame on me!  There is so much going on here.  I think of all these things I'm going to blog about during a typical day, but none of them end up getting written.  So, today, I'm ending my silence.  Sad thing is, I really have nothing of importance to write about.  Please bear with me.

Our little L is crawling.  Not in the traditional sense.  At this point, it's the combat crawl.  She's also starting the sounds required to learn to speak English--"BaaBaa" and as of today, "MaaMaa."  It's all very exciting.

I want to upload a video of G and his dancing thing at the middle school, but I don't know how.  Ugh!  Usually I mess around with things until I've got it figured out, but I honestly can't see any links to doing it.  If you know how, would you please enlighten me?

I finished my Introduction to Family Processes class and have ventured into statistics, which so far, I'm enjoying completely--much to my surprise.  Not nearly as hard as I thought it was going to be.  It just has a bad rep.  I'm still working on my children's literature class too and have been reading like a fiend.  Just started The Whipping Boy with A today.  He and I finished Ramona's World yesterday.  DJ and I are reading A View From the Cherry Tree and B and I are reading Where the Red Fern Grows.  I also finished So Far from the Bamboo Grove and The Witch of Blackbird Pond this past week.

So, you can ask if my house nad children are still surviving me?  Amazingly, the kids seem to be doing well.  The house...hmm.  Well, I could do better.

Z and I got to participate in the Not So Newlywed game at the ward activity last night.  We were booted off the island, I guess you could say.  We, at almost 18 years, were the newly-est wed of the crew, so that 's my excuse as to why we came in last.  It's not my fault that he didn't know that his favorite amusement park ride is the bumper cars--the ride he takes the kids on every summer during the family reunion; he's not the amusement park kind of guy--that's my job.  Give me the ride, I'll take it!  The activity was great fun!

Q is sitting here playing piano while I type.  It's lovely.  I got her two books for Christmas, and it seems that she can't get enough of them.  She loves to play Broadway hits.

Two of our boys are suffering from asthma stuff again.  Seems to never end.

All in all, life is good.  I can't say I'm not getting nervous about all the earthquakes around the world right now.  We have a friend serving a mission in Concepcion, Chile, and are happy to know that he's okay.

This coming week, I'm going to make time for blogging.  It's so therapeutic, and I may even do more than throw a link at you with a short comment attached.  Just wait and see...

Always look forward to your updates. If you want some help with the video thing, feel free to ask. You can do it a few different ways depending on how you want to set things up, from hosting it someplace like photobucket or youtube and posting a link, or even just embedding the video right on blogger.

I'd quip that I provide consulting services for chocolate, but I have to weigh-in to stay on lifetime, so maybe I shouldn't say that :)
