I guess I have been distracted with all of the internet channels used to communicate. I feel like I've been cheating on my blog with Facebook. Sorry, blog, to neglect you. I don't even really like Facebook that much, and I think of you the whole time I'm there.

Time marches on, and it is so gradual sometimes that I don't even notice it. I am done with spring semester only to hop into summer semester next Monday. Then up to the U of U in the fall. If you can call August the fall. I am very schooled out. But it's just beginning. I only hope that my acting classes will be better that English 2010 (argument essays are what I imagine hell to be) I think that's another reason I haven't written in here- I am so tired of writing. And to think I almost became an English major. What was this brain thinking? Actually, that is the problem... it can't do that so well...

The biggest news since last I wrote is that we got our yard installed. After almost three years of mud and weeds, we are now officially a house. I gave a talk in sacrament meeting a couple of Sundays ago that was all about weeds. I have become very familiar with them in this town. I bought my first tree today to plant. It's a flowering cherry and it doesn't really go with the exterior of my house, but I don't care. It's so beautiful. I seriously got all teary when I saw it. I knew it had to be mine. Trees are scarce where I am, and seven years ago when we moved here I was struck with urgency to plant some trees. It's been a long wait. I pray it doesn't die.

Gratitude for Today
1/ I am grateful for a clean bathroom
2/I am grateful I can see. (see #5)
3/I am grateful I got my Mother's Day gifts all figured out. It's always so hard to know what to get.
4/I'm grateful for my treadmill.
5/I'm grateful Rex can see. It wasn't the case last week when he sprayed crap in his eyes, and for one day I knew what it would be like to have a blind hubby. It sure would change things, and I am glad his sight returned. Scary. There is so much to be grateful for.
