Happy Thursday

Hi All,

I am back at work and the boys are adjusting to being in Utah.......I can say I don't miss the humidity that was in Fla. :)) I am leaving this job on August 8th :(( (I really love this job) Gas has gotten so ridiculously priced driving from Logan to Ogden isn't working for me.

I have a new job as a Office manager and will start there on the 11th of Aug. I am excited about that as I feel this will be a great opportunity for me and I hope a great assest to their company as well. I really like the (Tom) he seems to be a nice guy and look forward to working with him and his wife along with the other employees there.

I have to share on Monday I came home from work and my yard was mowed the weeds pulled and the trash out no limbs or debries in the yard I was so impressed my boys did that for me. I guess they do love me LOL......

Saturday I am having a yard sale and what I don't sale will go to the "DI" Deseret Industries its like the Salvation Army or Goodwill. I am cleaning up and less is better for me. Plus I will have room for my sons stuff :)).

Have a blessed day,

4 Days to go

My son served in the area where the movie Batman filmed their shots of the Castle that they used. (ok tidbit info). I have 4 days left to see my son only 2 in a half to get ready for me to get the house in order and get packed for our trip to Florida. Yikes!
Something sweet to remember.......
Prophetic Passing
I imagine he's running to Marjorie now,
Yes, running, not waving his cane.
I see him embracing his father and mother
While they keep repeating his name. I see him now meeting his fore bearers,
Brother Brigham and Joseph are there.
Sweet reunion of prophets, united by service
That only such noble men share.
I see him embraced by the SaviorWhile Father says, "Good and well done.
So faithful in stalwart endurance, I welcome
My noble, most excellent son." I then hear the ripples of laughterAs he says the reception's just fine,
But he hopes that he'll get an assignment or two Since there's no need to waste any time.
I can hear his clear voice in the stillnessAt the close of this sweet Sabbath day,
Have faith and move forward — there's work to be done.
President Hinckley would want it that way.

Hi all,

They have the Cruisin weekend going on and my favorite band will be performing - STYX - yay! So I told my son about it in England and he told me to go for I deserved it. I have invited my 16yr old to go, but go figure he says if he can work, he wants to work? WOW!!

I never seem to be amazed by my kids. :)) I am going to take pics and send them to my sister as my brother in law loves old cars.... I might have to get them out here next year :))

I have been trying to get ready for my trip to Fla. I am doing so good that I actually got 1 load of laundry completed. UGH!! I better get on the ball or again I will be waiting til the last minute to finish everything.

See ya tomorrow!

Wednesday July 2, 2008

OK! :)) I just finished with emailing my son in England. He is so funny! Well he is excited about eating some American food like Red Lobster. We agreed that is a must in Florida (need Fresh seafood). He wants Popeyes - I am ready for that, its some awesome Fried Chicken. Bad news is there are no Popeye's in Northern Utah :(( Some of the list is Arby's and Krystals (no Krystals in the Northwest).

He is doing well, worrying a little about home, finding a job, school, etc.... I told him to relax, all will fall in to place. He will be eating dinner at David S. Baxters Home on Monday for Family Home Evening. In case no one knows who that is he is a Seventy in the LDS church and very spiritual man.

I am looking forward to all the stories when he gets home..... He wrote in one his emails as a reply about me getting the first HUG when he got off the plane. He said there was no question about it, I get the first hug, lol. He said I was his Sunshine and it is raining there today. I feel very blessed to have 2 wonderful sons that love me so much.

My youngest son just got a job (all his doing). He wants to have money to buy stuff in Fla for his brother, and of course him too! :) Other than chores, he is the best kid. LOL, I think that it is normal - most teenagers don't like to clean and do chores. I need to get some work done as I have a busy day at the office. Til tomorrow.

Have a Blessed day.

Hey all,

16 days til my youngest and I are at home and 17 for my missionary to be home!!

I am at work and trying to tie up some last minute things before I head to Florida. I am so excited! I find myself crying with happiness and joy that my boys will be together again, I will be with my family, and I get to see my missionary after 2 years! WOW! 2 years! I will be getting my email tomorrow and I will give a progress of how he is and whats he doing. I know he has a baptism or 2 set up for July and he has been dealing with the allergy season. He has hay fever. :(( I need to mow the lawn, get the weeds done, mop floors, and get the house in order. So much to do and so little time, LOL.

I will be displaying pics of England each day; pics Elder W. sent to me during his mission. I better get some work done here. Til tomorrow......

Have a Blessed Day!!
