Today was interesting. I made blueberry muffins this morning for PEC, but they came out burned. I need to put a thermometer in this oven as I think it is cooking too hot or something. Everything seems to come out in way less time than has been required in the past. They were still OK, but they smelled way better than they tasted.
Things went fairly well at church today, but it just seemed like a day for things to go wrong or at least for people to be on the edge. It seemed that we got into it about having a meeting. We were just trying to purpose an alternate meeting date and venue, but people started to take things personally. I guess I’ll go try this meeting this week and see what it is all about and maybe I can talk some sense into people that we should be having all of our necessary meetings on Sunday and not waste time driving around and meeting during the week. If we have too many meetings, let’s eliminate them, not hold them on different days. I can’t understand why anyone would propose taking the missionaries away from their prime time of meeting with investigators or members to talk about how we are going to do the work. Let’s just get out there and do it!
I had dinner with the missionaries and the Lee’s tonight. The Lee’s made some amazing steak, probably the best non restaurant steak I’ve ever had. I’m looking forward to the left overs tomorrow or later in the week. I think I may have to finish off Maegan’s leftovers in the fridge first, before they go bad. This is going to be a short week at the office with only going in two days.
I was talking with the Lee’s today about various things and we got to my dilemma that I need to get married before I turn thirty so I can continue to work in the temple. It seems like so long from now, but also seems so soon. It’s only three years away. Brother Lee said that when he was being released from his mission he was essentially told that they expected him to be married within six months. As crazy as I think that is, I almost understand it. I guess things have changed a lot since then, but yet we still have these written or unwritten rules about ages we need to be married by. Maybe that would also help with my Christmas spirit which I can tell is already getting tried.
