We're finally in our new house. It was a really long weekend. We still have a lot to do and I'm really stressed out because Sugar Daddy is leaving to go out of town for a couple of days. We don't quite have the house kid proofed yet. Big Apple is having way too much fun on the stairs and Frog likes to open the front door and go to play outside. I'm going tomorrow to buy a gate (or two) and a deadbolt or something for the front door.

In other news, Elder Bednar was at our Stake Conference this weekend. I went to a meeting with him this morning for new members and those that are investigating the church. I'm neither, but SD is the Ward Mission Leader and was playing the piano at the meeting so I tagged along. I sat in the front row (it was in the Primary room) so I was super close to E. Bednar. I'm writing down my spiritual experiences in a not so public place but I thought I'd share some of the funnier aspects of this morning.

1. Both of the General Authorities wore two rings. I'm wondering if this is a pre-requisite for the job or, if once you have the calling, you feel pressure to live up to the two ring standard.

2. I was close enough to see that E. Bednar's ring was from BYU and he graduated in 1980.

3. He was very well groomed and had no visible nose hair. *I can't believe I just wrote this*

Blogging may be sparse in the next couple of days as we're trying to dig ourselves out from under the boxes. I already have a couple of funny stories about our first few days here but I'm too tired to write about them at the moment. Just wanted to check in!

    Thanks for the update. I'm glad to know you are right side up (more or less). Good luck with the child-proofing. When is Lisa coming?

    I'm so jealous. SO JEALOUS!!! We went to an open house today for a bargain basement house that is listed at 698K. It's small and weird and is boxed in by apartment buildings on every side. It did have nice hardwood floors and granit countertops though. Does U of Nebraska have any openings for Engineers with Masters degrees who don't want to write papers or travel?


  3. Janet-Lisa's here right now. But she can only stay until tomorrow and SD doesn't come back until Wed night.

    Catherine- I'll check into the job market here for you! :) I'm counting my blessings that we were able to get this house (for considerably less than 698K---good old Nebraska for ya) and now I just hope we'll be here for a long time. We've moved 6 times in the last 8 years. Yuck!

  4. Just keep thinking May 26, May 26, May 26...

  5. Oh Mary, you're right! Breckenridge here we come!
