Hey. Hi. How's it going?
Yeah, I used to hang out around this blog a lot.
Not so much anymore.
Summer keeps my hands busy. And mom and dad can hardly wait for school to start again...
Actually, it's been nice. I like my little punks. They crack me up more often than they make me cry. They stretch me. Teach me patience. All that good stuff.
Like today. The sweet Spirit keeps whispering to me, "It will all be for thy good."
If you say so...
You know that whole "enduring to the end," business. Do you have to do it with a positive attitude?
Awww, good times. Good laughs.
I've really enjoyed our move here to Arizona. This is our 3rd summer here.
The friends I have made...what can I say? They're incredible. Some of the most incredible people I've ever met. I can't imagine not knowing them. They're kind, non-judgmental, patient and forgiving. They're hilarious. They're genuine. I'm so grateful for the few hours a month I get to spend with them. Ha!
We went to Utah for 3 weeks.
Brett and I reverted back to childhood and decided to run away. And since we're adults with "means", we ran away to Chicago. Brett grew up and decided he actually had to work on this hiatus. Something about it being a "business trip", blah blah blah. But it turns out I'm an adventurous little scally wag.
I had a total blast sight seeing on my own.
I spent 7 hours at the Natural History Museum. Saw maybe a 1/4 of everything.
Got lost in downtown Chicago. Ended up at the Navy Pier. Laughed like a 2 year old on the rides.
Thought the human statue was a real statue. Got scared by the human statue. Laughed like a 2 year old.
Ate some delicious food. Met a random stranger named Pat. Talked to her for an hour about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Failed to have a Book of Mormon on hand. So sad.
So yeah, we've been busy, but we're also having fun...ish.
After all, it is going to be 117 degrees today. Too hot to have fun. Just squirt me with the hose and we'll call it a day.
