Mail

I got my mail keys today. Now I really feel like a homeowner. At least there was only good news in the mailbox today when I went to get it including a check from escrow for about $1000! That will help pay for a small fraction of some of the things I have bought recently. I was expecting the refund since they overcharge you for everything; I just wasn’t expecting it so quickly. I figured it had to still be a few weeks off.

Work went fairly well today although it was a little too quiet for my taste. The shop smells like wood from all the new pallet shelving, which was actually a nice smell. I went to a new dry cleaners today, Green Cleaners, down the street from the shop and dropped off some ties that I have some incidents involving chocolate with recently. I guess we’ll find out on Wednesday or Thursday if they were able to recover them.

I went to FHE tonight for the first time in a few months or so it seems. I stopped going when they pushed the time back to 8 as I figured that was just too late or too long to stay in Murrieta. Now that I live here, and only five minutes away, I can’t really complain much about something starting at 8. I doubt I would have done anything more productive at home anyway. We just watched a video and then talked about it. I was thinking about how quickly people changed from praising Jesus to wanting him to be crucified. I wonder if the slippery slope really happens that quickly to some of us today. Could I go from A to B that quickly?

I spent some time ordering stuff from ldscatalog this evening for the house. I’ll have to go get frames for the proclamations and pictures of the first presidency and quorum. I still can’t find any good temple art – can someone point me in the right direction? I really love the picture (painting) of the Rexburg temple in President Mattson’s office at the Church. I don’t know if it would really work above the fire place (I think it is the wrong orientation) although I am sure I could find it a home in the house nonetheless.

I also got some letters written to Tara and Stephanie and got some errands done today. I got the rest of the ceiling fans for tomorrow at Lowe’s, returned the kitchen lamp to Target and bought a few things on my list, including a birthday card for Susan. It is going to be really strange to be putting that in the mail to her instead of just giving it to her or leaving it at the house. I updated my address with Netflix and that was about as far as I got. I can only being to imagine the nightmare of changing addresses ahead of me. The worst part is when you are ordering something and you can’t figure out if you have updated the address for the credit card you are using yet.

Well, I should probably get to bed, so good night to all!
