And, a wrap-up of my week:
Chocolate Cake was a really good girl, but just like we promised ourselves, we didn't take her home. We didn't take one of the puppies either--because every once in a while, I do exhibit a smidge of self control.
But guess what? Jared randomly bought me a Garmin 305 after reading that post from earlier this week. It hasn't come in the mail yet, but when it does, I'll be sure to tell you all about it. Turns out you actually can buy love. Yay!
The work gods were coming at me from every possible angle this week. I was taking work calls at the dinner table, during my exercise class, while I was pooping--and I accidentally flushed. Excellent. The woman on the other end of the line was like, "Was that a toilet flushing?" And instead of making up some lame-o story about flushing a spider, I was like, "Yup. This phone call's getting so long that I couldn't hold it anymore."
Seminary is...um...early. Early but good. Just to refresh your memory, I'm teaching a religion class, to ten or twelve teenagers, out of my den, every morning at 6:05. Here's a picture of the classroom:
Oh gosh no. I totally don't miss that square footage. Not even a little bit.
I've only had to yell at the kids once so far, when I looked at that table and I fool you not, every single kid, except for one, was sleeping. It was so dramatic you guys. I took in a deep breath, I threw down my Scriptures, slammed my fist on the table and said, "YOU KNOW WHAT? I'M NOT ABOUT TO STAND HERE AND TALK TO MYSELF. SEMINARY CAN BE OKAY, OR SEMINARY CAN SUCK AND RIGHT NOW YOU'RE ALL MAKING IT SUCK! SO SNAP OUT OF IT!"
They did. They snapped out of it. It was fierce. And awesome.
Speaking of awesome, the kids are really awesome.
Hope you have an awesome weekend.
