I actually just bought a book with the same title, it's my Christmas present to myself. I bought a bunch of textbooks--I think it was like 15--for just under $100. Yeah, that's right. I rock at life. And online shopping.
All week, but especially since Thursday, I've been trying so hard to write this talk I had for church today. It was supposed to be 15 minutes and I was a little worried. I knew I'd make it, but I wasn't sure by how much. But making it is making it, right? Well, I made it, that's for sure! I sat down and looked at the time....between 25 and 30 minutes! Oops! The High council man wasn't upset, he was the other speaker, and maybe he enjoyed not being the one that was supposed to fill time. But I had people laughing and smiling and a few people came up afterward and told me that they enjoyed it. That made me feel pretty dang good about myself.
Derek came to hear my talk too. He brought Kendra, who as much as I wanted to dislike (she stole my man! Even though he wasn't, I still could hope haha) her, I can't. She is cute and happy and polite and you can see that they like each other. And heaven knows I'm not going to mess up their happiness.
I miss having Cherie here when I'm at church. I sent her a crossword puzzle last night (yeah, I was taking a break from writing my talk, again) and she sent me one, but I forgot to print it off. But it's still not the same. I'm hoping to see her in April. I know it'll annoy CFR if I take a week off, especially in a time when everyone wants it, but I am a good worker. And I don't foresee any other breaks this year. Or maybe I just think I'm a bigger deal there than I know I am and they'll be okay! We'll see.
Anyway, that is all for now. I talked to Dad today, he seems to be doing okay and he hopes to be able to go home on Tuesday. I made him promise me he'd take it easy from here on out, but he said something about he'd try. But then I saw a car slide off the road so I had to get off the phone. Anyway, okay, now it is all done. Bye :D
