The Good: Joseph's sister is here with her kids visiting from New York. They will be here a month sharing our home. We are excited to spend time with them!
The Bad: Our checking account has been hacked into and someone is on a spending spree quickly draining our account. The account has been frozen, and hopefully our bank will get it sorted out and reimburse our account. Nerve-racking. Maddening. (Dating & Escort Services in Minnesota? Pleeeze!)
The Ugly: I had an obsession with the sun as a teenager and young adult. Picture this: I used to lay out for hours on top of aluminum foil with shortening and baby oil smeared into my skin. Last week, I went to the dermatologist to have him check out a suspicious sun spot. As a consequence for my follies, I came out having 9 pre-cancerous sun spots frozen off. (Pretty picture, see?)
Finally: Today is the anniversary of the martyrdom of the Prophet Joseph Smith. I know that he was a prophet of God, called to restore the true and living Church of Jesus Christ back to the earth today. Millions shall see Brother Joseph again!
I am honored to be married to my husband extraordinaire Joseph, for 15 years. Our joy is full (most days) because we are blessed to have these children in our family: Joshua (12yrs), Emma (10 yrs), Caleb (7yrs), and Elizabeth (5 yrs.). I enjoy camping with my family, cooking, reading, playing and teaching the violin and blogging. Our story began over 15 years ago at Ricks College. We have moved 9 times in 14 years, but have come full circle to the city where we were married and sealed in the LDS temple.
