Wow. Have we been busy. I so need to begin writing in my book again. I’ve gotten to three chapters and 10,000 words and thought, wow, I’m really making some progress, but then life just got too hectic.I’ve been asked to become an ordinance worker at the temple (for those of you who may not know, I have been an office worker there for the past year). I am also knee-deep in camp fundraising and planning, and have asked to be a temporary Sunday school teacher for the CTR-5 class at church.
In planning the fundraiser for Girls Camp, I’ve learned that I really need to work at not procrastinating, especially when it involves other people’s plans, and also that even though I have procrastinated, Heavenly Father has still helped me pull it all together. It really is all coming together remarkably well after all the times I’ve put it off, and I am grateful for that.
I also realized this past week while working at the temple that I care more about what church members think of how I’m doing at my callings than what Heavenly Father thinks. I really need to shift my focus there and hopefully it will help me out a lot.
Collin also has three callings: ordinance worker, Elders Quorum Teacher, and Scouts Leader.
Work has been really hectic for Collin. It seems like every week he is on the pager shift at night or on late shift (he’s working 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. this week.) His job is also considering changing the work week to four 10-hour days. His off day would be Wednesday so he’s thinking if he has the option to keep his current schedule he will.
I’m currently obsessed with Mongolian beef. We went to PF Changs a few weekends ago and theirs is absolutely amazing. I got a recipe from a friend and need to try it soon!
I’ve also been on Weight Watchers again. This week is my 6th. I’ve lost a total of 8 pounds so far. Collin continues to tell me how proud of me he is, despite his bringing home three 1/2 –gallons of Blue Bell ice cream home last night because they were on sale!
Collin’s basketball league starts back Monday, the 14th. Luckily all the games will be at a high school that’s both close to our house and both our jobs. It should be fun and I’ve really missed some of the people we see at the games. I’ve been meaning to call them since October, but just keep putting it off.
Other than those updates, Collin and I are looking forward to visiting
