Red Heifer

We had a great institute lesson tonight, as we always do. We talked about the red heifer in Numbers 19 for the most part. I really liked how we compared ourselves to the Jews and exploring how much we really are Jews with just a bit more truth and authority.

I had this massive headache this afternoon at the office and had to just come home and take a nap. I was going to go shopping with the girls tonight, but by the time I got to the point where I felt like I could go out again there wasn’t enough time to make it worthwhile. And, I’m not sure that I was ready for all that energy with my head still hurting. I’m sure it has had something to do with my weird sleep schedule this week and I think I’ve been getting a cold or fighting one off.

Ready for the Weekend

I nearly didn’t go to work this morning. I don’t know if it was just cause I got to sleep too late last night, ate too much, have just been exhausted or what. I just didn’t feel very good. I thought maybe I could work from home for a few hours this morning, covering phones and working on stuff and then take the afternoon off before working an install tonight. Then I thought that I should just go in and come home at lunch. It’s a good thing I went in as I was busy almost all of the day. I didn’t get to leave early, and in fact, I ended up leaving late, even with the install tonight.

The install went well and it was kid of fun to get out and do stuff like that. It would have been better had I not already worked 60 hours this week, but I probably should try and get out with the guys more often to get a better sense of what is going on. We just installed a few speakers and a 37″ LCD, it really wasn’t much work. We should try and get more of those jobs and keep getting around.

I came home and then Alison came over shortly thereafter. We made pasta and finally ate dinner around 10:15. No wonder I’m not feeling well, I’m eating at all the wrong times!

I’m not sure what this weekend has in store, but I’m looking forward to it. Even building cleanup tomorrow morning. I’m thinking about riding my bike over there.

Teaching Plans

It amazes me how no matter how much I think I’m going to get home at a reasonable hour it never happens! I should have been home by 9, but ended up staying after a Sunday School meeting and talking with Brother Rodriguez, Marissa and Stephanie for over an hour and now it is almost 11! We had a good meeting tonight and are going to work on meeting more regularly in the future. I guess i will be teaching a quarterly teacher improvement class and maybe we’ll run a teaching the gospel class over the summer to thin out our numbers in gospel doctrine. We’re going to try to start taking attendance in Sunday School to see who is sticking around and how our numbers are really looking. I just need to figure out when I’m going to teach this said class and what in the world I’m going to teach. I’ve got some thoughts, but they need more pondering.

I found out on Sunday that Brother Kowallis and I had the exact same sickness on the exact same time frame, or at least it appears that way. We both got sick early Tuesday morning, were feeling better on Wednesday and then got sicker again on Thursday with similar symptoms. I was presuming I picked it up from NAMM, but I don’t think enough time would have passed for me to get it anywhere else. Unless we both got it from the temple somehow on Saturday. I don’t even know if he went then, I’m just reaching for ideas.

I got caught up on a lot of things today at work which was great. I’m hoping tomorrow I can start working on undertaking some new projects I have been wanting to start on for a while now. We went shopping at Costco this evening where I was able to get some more of the good picture frames, but still can’t find any of the multi frames which I’d really like to get my hands on. I may have to venture outside of Costco for my framing business, but I just like the products they have so much I don’t want to have to find quality but reasonable products elsewhere.

Tara made it through the MTC and had an absolutely wonderful time there. I’m anxious to hear more about how things are going for her now that she is settled into Florida.

Starting to Feel Better

I think I’m starting to feel better. I actually made it through a whole long day and I’m still standing, well, was until I sat down to start writing. Yeah, anyway, I still feel exhausted, but I’m hoping I will be back to my weird self shortly. I really don’t have much to report from today. All went well at work.

As I was headed home this evening I decided to return some calls from the past few days. I had some voicemails from when I was sick and I managed to leave my cell phone in my car today at work so I had a few calls from today to return. That led me to stopping at the GT on my way home tonight instead of going tomorrow night and taking the next step of our plan to rule the world.

I didn’t make it to FHE tonight. I’m starting to think I’m on the verge of being inactive. Maybe February will be a better month for me! I think I’m going to bed now since my brain went there about an hour ago.

Garth Brooks

OK, so I’m definitely a few days behind and it is definitely way beyond my bedtime, especially for this week. Apparently I pushed myself way too hard last week and I have been paying for it this week. I woke up in the middle of the night Tuesday sick, spent the whole day in bed almost two weak to move and slept through most of the day and all of the night without a problem. I was good enough to move Wednesday, but still not great and then things got worse again on Thursday. I made sure to get to bed, try and get lots of rest and prayed that I would be better for the concert today. Something in the plan certainly worked because I pulled through today actually feeling pretty good considering I thought last night I was going to visit a doctor this morning and thought I was on the brink of death.

The concert was great. Christina, Tara, Andrea and Mandi and I ended up going and meeting Ryan and Lindsay and Nathaniel and Erica there. We all had a great time. I left my cameras at home, so I’m hoping that Mandi got some good pictures to share. The floor seats (floor 1 row 6) were great and Garth did a great job packing a bunch of songs and surprises into the tour hour show. Andrea said she saw me on the video screen a few times, so I guess that means I made it onto national television as well. I’ll have to keep my eyes out for a rebroadcast or a recording someone has to see this for myself.

Now, it’s time for sleep so that hopefully I am recovered enough to do something again tomorrow.
