From Busy to Busier

A few months ago, I thought that life had gotten kind of... boring. Maybe boring is the wrong word. It was just the same thing, every day; we had settled into a predictable routine. Well, as predictable as you can get with a crazy 2-year-old. And that whole hospital thing wasn't exactly boring. But, you know.

Anyway, then school started (for Adam and I) and I suddenly found myself busy with driving, his homework, my homework, spending time with Grace, extra laundry, extra errands, volunteering in his classroom, and getting everything done around the house. I was busy; but it was a good busy. You know? Enough to keep me going all day, but nothing that got me too stressed.

Then, I got called into the Bishop's office.

I'm the new 2nd counselor in the Relief Society in our ward. Which after I picked my jaw off of the ground, I realized I was excited about. If I could just give all of the sisters back a fraction of the love that they have given me, I'd be happy. I'm excited for the opportunity to get to know everyone, and serve, and I know how much I will grow.

But, seriously, I've only been in for a bit, and it's craziness. Meetings, and planning, and Super Saturday is coming up, which I'm completely in charge of now, and agh! I had no idea how much went into running Relief Society. That on top of everything else... wow. I. Am. Stressed.

So, I know how much our out-of-town family loves my blog. Okay, maybe not so much the blog, but I know you like the pictures of Adam and Grace. :) I'm going to do my best to keep posting a few times a week like I normally do, but forgive me for being M.I.A. once in a while.

Maybe Mike will write on it for me... now THAT could be interesting.


You guys know I would never give him the password, right? Otherwise he'd be giving out strange Dutch oven recipes that involved peanut butter and barbecue sauce.

We can not have that happening.

And he really would do it.

He's so lucky I didn't find out about his strange cooking skills before we got married. Seriously.

That's exciting! It should be very rewarding.

AND We tried to warn you about Mike's food habits.
