Sorry to take such a long time between posts. It’s been a busy week, albeit a very good one as well. I met with my bishop on Friday afternoon, and accepted a calling to be Relief Society pianist. I’m excited about it. I love playing piano, and love Relief Society, so it’s a plethora of good things all mixed together.

Joe and I went to church together yesterday morning, which was absolutely lovely. I bore my testimony for the first time in quite some time, and was set apart after the meetings. We then spent much of the day sharing scriptures, talking, etc. He pulled out one of his mission scrapbooks and was reminiscing about the high and low points of his mission. We also watched a documentary about The Screwtape Letters that was quite interesting.

Sorry to be so brief, but time is short. I’ll be back to update more shortly. Have a great day!

No, I haven’t died, fallen off the face of the earth, nor been buried in an avalanche of books that I need to finish reading/reviewing/whatever. I’ve just been busy. Joe and I were on the run all day Saturday–I got to go to a a friend’s daughter’s high school graduation, grocery shopping, lunch & movie with Joe, cleaning, putting up wallpaper border in our master bedroom, and assorted other things that escape me at the moment.

I seem to be in the minority regarding the new Indiana Jones movie. I must confess to liking it. Joe didn’t like it all that much, but when we got to the theatre on Saturday afternoon to find that there would be a 1-hour wait for the movie we wanted to see, he decided to take me to the Indiana Jones movie since I hadn’t yet seen it. Yes, it’s campy and silly, but I thought that was kind of the point of the series. Harrison Ford still looks good, and so does Shia LaBoeuf. So yeah. Funness.

After going to church yesterday, Joe and I spent the rest of the day hanging around the house, talking, napping, and getting him prepped for his trip. He left again this morning. I’ve got a few projects I’m hoping to finish around the house this week before he gets back home. And can you believe the bathroom (aka “the room formerly known as the big ugly”) still isn’t finished?!?!  Since my mother is coming for a few days in a couple of weeks, the bathroom really needs to get finished up. I can hang the wallpaper border with no trouble, but installing a toilet is a little beyond my skill set.

And despite its having been a full week since I gave up caffeine, I’m still having headaches every day. They’re getting less and less severe. Today’s is just bad enough to be annoying, and I think I’m going to take some Tylenol in a sec. I’ve been enjoying cherry-pomegranite juice diluted 1:1 with water in the evenings, to get a little variation from plain water. It’s been a little tough to endure these blasted hadaches, knowing that a mere half-cup or so of cola would make them go away, but I’m just determined, dang it! I don’t want to be dependent on the cola companies.

So have a good one, and I’ll try to get some book reviews up tomorrow or the next day. And remember, there is a giveaway coming up this week, too. Stay tuned for more details.
