Today my wife and I are heading to Grand Junction along with my brother and his wife to do some shopping, eat lunch, and see Harry Potter. From all the reviews it seems the movie might not be all that is it cracked up to be. I struggle with the newer movies anyways as they try to fit a ginormous book into a 2-3 hour movie- it just can't be done right! I am sure you will get my review (okay, I am completely positive that you will) so be watching for that.
I noticed that on-line, one of my two grades has appeared for my Master's Classes. I received an "A" from my 6210-Leading Schools class and I wish the other teacher would hurry up as I need to get my grades submitted to the district for reimbursement. What with the increased interest rate, things are going to be a bit tight until we get our van paid off (actually they are going to be impossibly close to killing our budget). But, we shall see. I guess I could not be so lazy and actually get a summer job like my father had to do!
I forgot to mention in all the craziness of the last few days that on Tuesday, we headed to my sister's house and spent the night. The next morning we headed to the county pool. The kiddie section is SO fun. A water slide, a lazy river, a playground flowing with water! The only problem is my shoulders got fried! I even used sunscreen! Oh well. I was a lot of fun to visit my sister and her family and just get out of town for a while!
Last night was the Elder's Quorum social that I was in charge of (along with my two counselors). It turned out all right, I guess. We had a few families show up, not nearly as many I would have liked to have seen, but I did enjoy visiting with those that showed up. I guess in the long run it doesn't really matter as that activity killed our E.Q. budget for the rest of the year.
I am getting excited and nervous and worried and anxious for Monday. It is exciting to see a new baby join the world, but all that it goes through to get here (that alone testifies that there is a God) and the worry of if it is healthy. It reminds me of when I was teaching in Alpine and my wife was pregnant with our third child. I was taking a summer science class and the teacher was going on and on about all the defects a baby can be born with. The odds are pretty high. That was a long stressful pregnancy for me as I worried for about 6 months if our baby would be healthy. Anyone that knows me, knows that I have to have something to fuss over and stress about. Luckily, with the way my life runs, there is never a shortage of things to worry about.
Well, I best be off and get ready to head out of town. I guess taking a shower more than once every 2-3 days would be in everyone's best interest. (Well, at least in mine if I want my wife to sit by me ever again!)
