Dead

My blog fan base that is. It makes it hard to want to spend the time to post something when it seems like no one but me is reading. But then I remember that this is for posterity and not for my own self-fulfillment.

I have a calling! I teach the 11 year-olds. Which means, since the year is over half-way gone, I have very few kids. In fact, I will only have one in about two weeks and he is not a regular. I also have a partner teacher so maybe we will just sit and chat when no kids show up. Last week I taught and there was just one girl. She turns 12 in a week and a half so this Sunday is her last time in Primary.

Glen has only been able to play in church once but he plays again this Sunday. This Saturday, the stake is having an open house at the new stake center. I will be playing a cello duet and Glen will do something on the organ or piano. There will be booths set up explaining each of the auxiliaries (is that the right word?). I will also be assisting in the RS room because they need help setting up a quilt on a frame and then they need someone to help tie the quilt with visitors to the open house. It's going to be a busy day but hopefully we can help people in the community understand more about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

I have applied to BYU's general studies program. It is for people who went to BYU but left without a degree. I will be able to complete the rest of my degree online and get a bachelors degree. It will be nice to finally have a bachelors after eight years. But, I shouldn't speak too soon. The courses are expensive and if we are ever down on our luck, I will have to quit... again.
George is now kind of crawling. But mostly backwards. I was looking through his newborn pictures today. I can't wait for the next one. But I will.

Just letting you know...I'm a big fan of your blog! :) I feel so bad that you have been here so long and we still haven't gotten together. As I was typing up my "Girls night out" blog I couldn't help but think that the only person missing during that night was you. We are going up to SJ again (that is probably the problem) this weekend. If you can will you come over to lunchy on Monday? Just let me know what time, but better before 1pm as I watch my sisters kids. Talk to you soon.

Your fan base isn't dead. It's just mostly mute.

For the record...I read all of your posts! :) Love them! :)

I read all of your posts, I just rarely comment. My sister-in-law is doing the bachelor's in general studies. She really enjoys the courses and the fact that she is not rushed to get the coursework completed in a couple of months. Good luck with your new calling. Also, your baby sure is cute!

I think you'd be surprised to know all the 'blog stalkers' you have. People just can't be bothered to comment. We don't care THAT much. LOL. J/K. ;)

That said, don't do it for your readers, do it for the babe and for those future generations.

I'm still here. I'm barely getting mine caught up, so I got a little behind in reading everyone's blogs. George is growing too fast, he sure is a little cutie. I'm glad everything is going well and you're settling in to your new life. We miss having you around.

I love seeing all the pictures of George!! You are practically my oldest friend-- I mean we played in the mud when I was like 0 years old didn't we? Yep, that's right ZERO years old, and I love getting updates on your fam.
