Happy New Year everyone. I hope that 2010 is a good year for you. I had a busy New Year's Day as I worked my phone job from 3-6 and it was really busy. Looking forward to a brighter and happier new year.
I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas. I can't believe that it is just 4 days away. Joseph graduated from the Utah College of Massage Therapy on Dec. 18. It was a nice ceremony. My nephew, Rod and his family were there. We went to Sizzlers for dinner afterwards. Our ward Christmas dinner was the next night, and Travis helped me a lot with that. Joseph and Sara were able to attend with us. Have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year.
I hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I know we did. We had Jerry, Kathleen, Amy, Wesley, Samantha, Joseph. Sara, Rachel (Sara's sister), Travis and I here for dinner. We played games, ate, watched a movie and ate some more. Sara works at Kohl's and had to be there are 3:30 on black Friday, and Joseph is still at Inkley's and had to be there at 6:00, which is a lot more reasonalbe than 3:30. I hope all of you have a very Merry Christmas. I have my house all decorated and some shopping done.
Well, I have been bad about keeping up my blog page. I just tried to change the background with no luck. I have had an uneventful summer, except that my car broke down and I am driving a much older car now. I did have a nice visit from my friends Janet and Denny Maher the first part of June. It had been many years since I had seen them. Allen and family were also here to visit along with Karalee's Mom, Sheila. We got a new bishop a few months ago. Otherwise, life has been the same. It has been almost 3 years now since Nyals passed away and it sure is lonely without him. I hope everyone has a great holiday season.
Well, I am sluffing off writing on my blog again, and again, I blame it on Face Book, after all, it couldn't be my fault (:. Joseph and Sara's car broke down last Thursday, and they just had it towed to a junk yard. Joseph bought a bike, and they will be using bikes and public transportation to get around, and I pick them up to come over here and do laundry and grocery shopping. Joseph, Sara, and I went down to Orem the first of the month for Kelli Trousdale's wedding reception. She was in our ward in CA, so we were able to see a few friends from there. Had a great time, and Kelli was a beautiful bride. My Father in-law will be 93 on June 4, and he is still doing pretty well for being on his own. I've been doing OK. I go to card making classes once a month, which is a lot of fun for me. Have enjoyed planting flowers in my yard. I'm glad I have Travis to mow the lawn and do other yard work. Hopefully, it won't be too long before I post again.
I've been so into Facebook that I keep forgetting to change my blog and write new things. Hopefully, we are now getting and keeping the warm weather. We have had a lot of snow and rain lately. My grass is nice and green. I'm so glad that Allen and Karalee's niece is doing well and will make a full recovery from her accident. Joseph and Sara are excited to see her family next weekend. Her sister, Annie, is going thru the Salt Lake Temple for the first time. I'm finally healed from the fall I took, but now my sciatica is back so I have to deal with that, but it could be worse. Joseph is now going to massage therapy school and he gives great massages. In June, Sara will be going to dental assistance school at night and will still teach pre-school during the day. May 2 is National Scrapbook Day and will be taking classes at my favorite scrapbook store. That night, will be going to a wedding reception down in Orem for a family that was in our ward in CA. Their oldest daughter, Kelli, is getting married, so that will be great seeing them again. I hope everyone has had a good April and had a good Easter.
So far, March has been a month full of fun events, except for one. On the 14th, I was going to a friends, missed a step and down I went on the hard concrete. My right leg is really bruised and I skinned my elbow, but I am healing. I was able to attend the dedication of the Draper Temple at out Stake Center, and it was really spiritual. Joseph celebrated his 25th birthday on the 23rd. Our Relief Society birthday was really fun as we had a service auction, and I am going to my old wards RS birthday tomorrow. I'm really enjoying making cards now, and I am going to a card making class again tonight at my favorite scrapbook store. We had temps in the 70's the first of the month and it snowed again on Monday. I'm really tired of winter, too gloomy.
