A Quickie

1. Keith gets sworn in tomorrow. This really IS the last thing that has to happen. The fees are paid, and this will make it truly official. I still can't believe it.

2. Keith's Mom and my Dad were able to make it to town for the ceremony. It's nice to have family in town, if only for a little while. It makes life a little less lonely.

3. I got my iPod shuffle in the mail today. Oh. My. Goodness! It is TINY, and when I say tiny I mean, TINY. Minuscule even. It's SO cute! Too bad I am giving it to Keith, I even got it engraved for free.

4. We got our new callings. Keith is the Deacons advisor, and I am the visiting teaching coordinator. That's right, I am the person in charge of creating all the pairs of sisters, and yes, I don't know anyone in the ward. And yes, the whole system needs redone. This should be interesting.

5. I am officially signed up for my vacation from work. 3 weeks off. I don't think I will know what to do with myself. Hopefully something fun. At least I have the 4th of July off this year, it will be the first time in 3 years. Woo hoo!

6. I am not afraid to admit that the close of all my favorite TV shows for the summer has me a little saddened. I love a good escape at the end of the day, plus it keeps me going when work gets slow.

7. The nice weather is still holding out, but I know (and am fearing) what is coming next. HOT. TEXAS. SUMMER. Have I mentioned before how much I hate the summertime? I have? Too bad. Cause I HATE it.

8. I got to hold a teensy baby this week. So very teensy. I don't care who you are, holding that baby girl would make you want one of your very own. I am no exception.

9. Natalie didn't join her ballet class early enough to make it into the recital, and for this I am glad. Why? Because the dang thing is on a Sunday. We have had small issues with keeping the Sabbath pop up here and there, but as the kids get older we know it is going to be more and more of a problem. So we took a stand, no more nothing on Sunday. Nada. Because we don't want to have to explain why such-and-such is kinda ok to do, when this-and-that isn't. I have a feeling it will be rough.

10. Lastly, I am slowly coming out of a funk. Blogging and otherwise. I just haven't been feeling myself, I have been missing my family and friends (again). I am hoping that having some distractions here will help me not to be thinking about all the other things that have been making me so sad.

So proud of Keith! Have a great time tomorrow. Your Dad should be there now, we had a good dinner with him and your Aunt last night. We'll be thinking of all of you tomorrow!

I'm sorry you've been down, sweets. I know its been hard for you being on your own so much, what with your move and with Keith working so hard for the Bar. Sending hugs your way!

How can you be sad when you can look at me and think about how things could have been (or might be when you got old) if you were a BOY. See how glad you should be just because you're a girl. Love. Dad

Shannon said...

Thanks Jenny for the hugs! When are you gonna come and visit all of us? Don't make me come down there again, LOLOLOL!

And Dad you are such a goof. I am glad you are here though, having extended family around does make life more bearable during rough spots. It's nice to have Keith done too, he is all ours at night, at least for now!

All the season finales have me a little down, too.

And I've been wanting to come see you, and your new house, but I can't manage to keep myself healthy. Someday!
