You can only have one hobby........

........if it's keeping a clean house!

For kicks, I was just reading some of my blog posts from a few years back. I've decided that I used to, but no longer have a personality. In it's place, there is a woman in desperate need of a haircut who has been crazy sick for weeks and spends all her days cleaning (bad word) and then having to leave the house with nowhere to go, so harassing my parents almost each and every day.

This needs to end. I am convinced that cleaning is very very bad for the soul (at least this one) and I am going crazy in such an empty house devoid of creative outlets. I can't wait until we can sell, buy, move, and be good and messy again. I am going to go nuts sewing and cooking and then not doing a good job of cleaning it up. You may think I'm joking, but that seriously sounds like heaven.

One weird side effect is that I think M really likes the order and cleanliness. If he could do a good job, I would let him do all the cleaning, he'd like it. Looks like he was sent to the wrong mother.

Check it out

This blog is something I look forward to reading- you should check out the post from today "Pharoah's Dream." It offers some really great insight and hope for us- and really affirms to me that our Prophets are there to help and guide us in a real and literal way.

I am posting this because I got tagged- it is the sixth picture in my sixth folder. It's E at 5 days old on a blanket the DH's assistant at work gave him.

I tag Whit and my MOM, because she needs to get her own blog.

Keep Trying, keep trying, don't give up, don't give up.......

For those of you who DON'T watch Yo-Gabba-Gabba (I know, you probably all do) my title is a song from that show.

Anyway, I am writing to ask: please continue to pass the word along about our house- the buyer we had was not able to get financing, so we are back to trying to sell.

We are trying to stay positive- but I doubt many people are out there in the snowstorms browsing the neighborhoods. We would really like to stay in the neighborhood, so it will be very sad if we lose the opportunity to buy the house we are under contract with. Please keep telling your friends!

Thanks for listening to that shameless plug. Now I'd better get to preparing for my enrichment presentation tonight. Wish me luck!

Happy Groundhog Day!

Another exciting Groundhog day at our house! The boys were curious as to who would ring our doorbell so early in the morning-- Sure enough, it was nobody, just some cool books that were left behind for them by the Great Groundhog.
And of course, a shout out to our Pops on his favorite holiday!
