Thinking

Today was pretty busy at work and I got stuck working the whole day. I guess it was good I took a lunch break. I was kind of forced to since there is essentially nothing in the house to eat. I didn’t make anything so there are no leftovers for tomorrow either!

We had FHE at the Pugmire’s tonight. I like having FHE in a home so much better than at the stake center. Todd gave a quick lesson on being careful of what we think. I know this to be true for our thoughts become our actions and it only grows from there. I hope I can learn to better control my thoughts.

Kenny helped me out with home teaching tonight as we visited Chris.

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!

New Light of Day

What a day. The new First Presidency was announced this morning. I watched the press conference at work and was pleased with the call of Elder Uchtdorf and am interested to see where this will take us. The press conference was good and kept me thinking for a while. For the record, the rain was gone and it was a beautiful day here in Southern California.

We hung a bunch of pictures in my office today so it finally looks like we have moved in. I have a few frames left to fill, but will need to go through some more pictures to get more variety. I got through a lot of email today because it was fairly quiet and can actually see all that is left on one screen!

Stacy taught a good lesson tonight at FHE on compassion. I could come up with some great things to write, but I need to get to sleep.

I went to the Dowden’s after FHE to take Diana the chocolate doughnut holes I forgot to bring yesterday. I knew I wasn’t going to be able to stay for just a few minutes, and it was 10 o’clock before I left.

I think I need to be in the office in the morning, so I had better get myself to bed. I’m ready for the new light.
