So, we went camping over the weekend. It was pretty dang fun. And we are wanting to go again. We have the beach trip coming up soon! I'm pretty excited for that. And I've been reading like a fiend and losing weight as much as possible. I'm up to 12 lbs. That's pretty good, but I want to lose at least 20 before the trip. We'll see if I can manage that. It's coming up soon. Anyway, I'm feeling ill and need to eat before I go to work for 5 hours. Cheers.

So, my poor husband got his hand cut open by an idiot at work. My husband, Brady, washes windows on campus, anything 10 feet high or higher, and a co-worker decided to throw a window scraper, the kind with a razor blade on the end of it, and it cut a huge gash on the top of Brady's hand, as well as the knuckles on the opposite hand. Now he can barely even move them and can't do anything for probably a week. Not to mention the week of work he'll miss because of it. That guy should give us his paycheck. I mean, times are tight this summer, so we need to work every hour we can and now Brady will be out of commission for a week. This sucks. I hate when we suffer for the stupidity of others. OH well, I just feel really bad for him. On a lighter note, we went to IKEA and got some great new furniture! Happy day. And my sister's official wedding date is January 2nd!

Church is always an interesting experience. So, I'm in a ward that is mostly young married couples without any kids, and so people move in and out all the time. Usually we don't really make a fuss when people leave, but today, one of the counselors of the Bishopric is moving on, or just getting a new calling, who really knows? But we had a twenty minute tribute to him and his family, which is fine, I'll miss him but I think it's not a very good thing to do. It was almost like saying that his calling made him better or more important than the rest of the ward. The fact that others didn't get the same courtesy just makes everyone else feel less important to the Bishop and rest of the ward. But oh well. It doesn't really matter. Just annoying and probably not a good thing to do. Just thought I'd write about it.

Well, I guess it was inevitable that I would start my own blog. I mean, practically everyone is doing it. But that brings up the question of what I think is important enough to write down. What thoughts and musings of mine will anyone want to read? Maybe I'll just write what is going on in my life right now, for lack of a better topic. My sister is engaged. And I couldn't be more happy for her. I'm so excited to be a bridesmaid. I've never been one before. I've been a bride, which was great. It's unfortunate that you only get to wear the dress once. It was so beautiful. But now it's my turn to be in the background, which I think I will like almost as much as getting married myself. I grew up in Paradise, in northern California and it's pretty much on fire right now. I'm afraid my parents will lose their home and that would really be bad. But it looks like the fire will stay away, but who knows? We'll just have to wait and see. Fire seems like a horrible way to go. Out of all the natural disasters people seem to be more afraid of earthquakes, tornadoes, and hurricanes than fire. But with any of those three happen, there are some things left over. A house may be toppled but at least there is wood left and other things that can be used again. Not with fire. Once a fire burns your house, it's gone. There's nothing you can do but wipe it away and start over. Nothing left... Well, that's my thoughts for right now. Until next time.
