Why My Kids Won’t Grow Up in Mississppi

I’ve been reading pages (and pages and pages) of histories that my parents are working. Momma is helping her mom write a history, and Daddy — a PROLIFIC writer — is finally compiling his thoughts and experiences. He’s barely out of college and is well over 157 pages. Today I read a segment Daddy wrote about the murder of the…

Crazy

Sold well over 1000 Be Strong cards *today*. Whoa. I’m not sure what happened, but I am now down to just about 400 left. That means I’ve nearly sold out in just 4 days. Guess I better reorder — again — even though I said this was the last reorder. I hope these cards are going to be useful for…

Mormon Boys to star in new TLC show

It’s not about Big Love — it’s about TOUGH LOVE. Hehehehe. http://www.nypost.com/p/blogs/popwrap/first_look_tlc_family_armor_PeN5BO… More Mormons on TV! We’re just quirky enough to be “reality” TV, but wholesome enough for Prime Time. Honestly, the show sounds boring to me. But so did Dirty Jobs, and that has turned out to be a gem. Mike Rowe is my boy. Wonder if he’s a…

A Testimony Based on Tender Mercies

I was sitting in Church on Sunday listening to a great talk — seems like it was LaRene’s — and it occurred to me that a weak testimony could be founded on ideas and understanding of the relationship they have with God on His tender mercies, instead of the gospel plan. When we first moved in, I noticed that people…

The webpage just keeps getting better and better! The new theme is now tweaked to suit my purpose, and I will say it looks very good. I’ve started adding the new products — now all that’s left is the bracelet kits and balloons. I got the charms up yesterday. (Man, that took forever.) I am delighted that it’s coming together.…

Wyoming Relief Society

A friend of mine forwarded this to me this week, and I had to chuckle. I wouldn’t be surprised at all if this picture was taken in the neighborhood I grew up in.

Asian medicine

You don’t say no to a Korean woman. Today I ended up at the acupuncturist taking part in activities that dh says “bring out the placebo effect like nothing else”. I am not a True Believer, but since it’s not terribly dangerous (and only costs $40 — AND you get a massage) I went. It’d be nice if being poked…

A sigh of release

Bishop told me in my PPI Sunday that I am about to be released in a couple of weeks. He even asked me for my ideas on who would make a good replacement. Huh? It was kind of weird. I almost wish he hadn’t told me, because now I’m having trouble focusing on the calling. I keep thinking about all…
