I'm such a slacker, I totally forget to post blogs on here...I figure no one reads them any more..oh well. It gives me an outlet when I need one and that's great.

Mondays this month my single's ward gets to do Family Home Evening for the two rest homes in our stake. Can I tell you that's a crazy experience! I got to do the one on Monday this week. I love the people dearly the first home there was a lady and she had no teeth, and kept crying out "HELP ME!" She was quiet when I started singing, but then when I stopped she'd yell again. "HELP ME!" She scared me to death! The second home was fun too, the lady that said the opening prayer was backwards...she kept saying, "God Bless Me" haha it was funny. Then there was this cute guy who smiles a lot, and when it came time to sing, he'd sing so loud the one lady next to him covered her ears. It was all I could do to keep from laughing. I know that there are older people in the world, someday my parents might be these people in this home. My hope is that if that happens someone will be nice enough to visit with my parents the way I tried to visit with these amazing people.

Valentine's Day -

It's funny, I've never been a huge fan of Valentine's Day. I just can't get into it...there's something not right about it...maybe it's the commercialization of it. I'm not a fan of that at all.

Work -

I was promoted at work last week, and start my new position on the 3rd of March. I'm really excited. New opportunities will come my way, and I can't wait. It's definitely going to be awesome.

Home -

I purchased an alarm system so if someone breaks into my home they alarm will sound and alert my neighbors. They are loud alarms, I had one go off on me just to hear it. It was louder than the smoke alarm.

Temple -

I finally decided with the help of my Father in Heaven that it was time to take out my endowments. I know the church encourages us to wait until the time is right, but I felt a sense of urgency and knew that I needed to go through. So, on February 7th I took out my endowments. All I can really say is, that it was beautiful and amazing. Words cannot fully describe the experience and I am humbled that the Lord felt I was ready to do this.

Well, that's it for me right now...

Take care!
