Got All the Time in the World


Ugh.  A few weeks ago I berated my SIL for not having a blog. ‘It’s a great way to keep family and friends updated on important family events!’ I said.  She whined about the time it would take.  I countered with saying how you could whip out a post in ten minutes and you don’t even need to upload pictures or use cute/colorful fonts (though who doesn’t appreciate that?!)  Then I realized that I have been the most slackerish of slackers lately and those ‘ten minute’ posts  I swore upon haven’t been happening on my end because I have felt so busy. 
We had a sacrament meeting talk today about prioritizing our time and one of the points was that some people base their self-worth on how long their to-do list is.  So I am resolving to not brag about how busy I am. Or to whine about it.  Because either way,  we all have the same 24 hours in a day and are the stewards of how that time is spent.
So yeah.  I’m bringing back the blog.  Look at me now!  Updating you all on the fact that my fam is watching The Wizard of Oz (we have amended our Sunday viewing options to include musicals—genius on my part since we’ve exhausted our library of VeggieTales. Also musicals take twice as long to watch and make me feel like my kids are getting cultured!) We just said farewell to our wonderful weekend guests (former neighbors) and there are some wet snow clothes drying in our laundry room.  First big snow fall and Ethan couldn’t resist running out there in his Sunday shoes…..
I do have one more meeting to go to tonight, but I also skipped one this afternoon. See how I’m the master of my schedule already?
Hope this update was worth the wait. Sorry no pix or fun fonts. Next time, I promise.

I'm counting on those cute fonts... I'll be uber impressed since I never have figured out how to do that :)

I think everybody had the lesson today on to-do lists! Glad to see more posts! I love your posts and seeing all the kids!

Yes, you better get back regular blogging. I have to have blogs to read every day while I eat my lunch. When I don't have blogs to read I just play word twist. See how I use my time.
I can't wait to see cute fonts on your next post.

You are tearin' it up with your 1 post per month. Yay...(imagine this in your so called colorful fun fonts for emphasis).

ha! I hope your sister-in-law reads this wonderful post. If we all have time to study the scriptures, then we have time to blog, right?

Wow, you sound busy without even having to itemize what it is you are busy doing! I'm all for musicals. I should come over and sing along to them to add a dimension to the fun.
