Today it is a balmy 49 degrees. Literally crazy hot for my brood! They had to go out and sit in the snow to cool off.
I stayed home from church with a sick Sophia today (I think she got glutened plus has a touch of a stomach bug--together it does not make a very nice combo)(poor darling). It was to be my last day as Primary President in my branch. It's a little bittersweet to be released, as it always is. I really loved working with the kids--they are all my little friends, and I will miss teaching them.
And now I am without a calling. I'm sure not for very long, though.
I really enjoyed the General Women's Meeting last night. And it was really fun to have both Bria and Chloe with me to watch it! While Sophia slept this morning, I made some printable spiritual help wanted signs based on Sister Burton's talk. I am counting it as my church for the day. (You can find them HERE.) Loved that talk. Loved them all. And the music. And everything. I was spiritually filled, and I sure needed it!
The opera is coming along nicely. We open in less than two weeks. The audio will be streamed live over the internet, so let me know if you'd like a link and I'll email it to you. I'll probably post it on my Facebook page, too, so look for it if we are friends.
Speaking of Facebook friends, if we are friends I've probably annoyed you with this enough, but I entered a photo of my cutie puppy Puccini into a little contest on a total whim and she ended up as a finalist. As of yesterday she was in the lead, and there are two more days of voting. What will I win? A year's supply of cleaning products! You know I need them, so go VOTE HERE! (It's quick, I promise.)
I'm hoping that this lovely weather begins to melt the snow more quickly because I am done with it. I nearly killed myself falling on the ice earlier this week. Thankfully, I didn't die, but I am fairly sure I gave myself whiplash and possibly even a mild concussion. It was pretty fun.
Despite being overwhelmed with life, I have to admit, I have it pretty darn good. Look at my lovely children cooling off in the snow! I have a wonderful husband who helps me so much, a cute dog who is capable of buying me cleaning supplies, a great job, a roof over my head, and the gospel of Jesus Christ. Who could ask for anything more?
