Today I cleaned off my desk. Ii know it doesn't sound big, but it is! I also gave my husband $60 I was saving because we didn't have enough cash in the bank and he is trying to take Lilli on a camping trip.
I grew up in Central Oregon. Our property was dotted by juniper trees. One lone pine tree stood in the neighbor's field. These trees needed deep roots to survive. For several years my parents planted various trees and had the kids water them all summer long. These little trees did not have deep roots. They… Continue reading Deeply Rooted Warrior Woman
To I let the sleeping teen sleep until noon! I'm telling you... this is a major act of kindness. However, studies do show that growing teens need sleep. Yet, tomorrow the sleeping in ends and we get going on having a productive summer!

Today has been a good day... although I've been distracted and not as on top of it as I need to be. I gave a man $2 to get a cup of coffee. He ask for 60 cents. It was worth seeing his face to give him the $2. I helped out at the… Continue reading #bethelight – Day 223

I did have one exception this past week when I went to dinner with my good friend. I ate Eggplant Parmesan. It was the… Continue reading This is Not a Diet
Today I put off things I was hoping to do for things other people needed me to do... I didn't finish my scripture study and I didn't finish the blog I worked on all day until midnight because I was interrupting myself too feed the missionaries, chat with family members when they were ready to… Continue reading #bethelight – Day 221
A few weeks ago I was helping a student pick a song for an audition for an upcoming musical at school. As I glanced through the many musical theatre anthologies, my eye fell on the song "I Believe" from The Book of Mormon, the Musical. So many of my friends love this musical.

Well... School is now over and we are racing into summer. Lillian got to go on a little road trip with Chad. He was in Oregon for a visit and drove to Idaho Falls for a wedding and back. Lilli went to help keep him awake. Other than being left at the mall during the… Continue reading Trucking into Summer
