There's a Talk for That

Having a rough week. I mean truly horrible. A lot of bad days, major expenses, stresses, setbacks, and the like. That's why I love the Mormon Messages on YouTube. No matter what you face or how overwhelmed you feel, there is a message meant for you that's free and will uplift the soul. Try finding an iphone app that can do that. (Actually, there might be one. Anyone know?)

One of my favorites from a dear former Apostle:

3 Years Strong

To my Samuel,

 I love you, best friend.
We've had 3 fantastic years of you and me.
I can't wait for little Alexis to join the fun.

We're planning a nice dinner to our favorite La Jolla Groves tonight and maybe a free night at Sundance this weekend if anything is open (love the perks of the job).

Dear Baby

Sorry for all the chocolate I eat. It's probably not good for you. I bet you wish you got more vegetables. You won't feel that way forever, so I should probably relish it while I can. Tell you what, I'll do that if you move the hand (or foot or elbow or whatever it is) away from my bladder.

Dog Days

This is a very random post.

Here we are in the last month of summer. How did that happen? Also, it has gotten very hot lately. Thank goodness it's not also very humid or the nights would be miserable.

Sam and I subbed for the 3 year-old class at church today and survived. It's funny that I was so worried about the lesson plan, when really it was 40 minutes of coloring with teaching the lesson of "Heavenly Father is happy when we learn to say 'I'm sorry' and 'I forgive'" in tiny doses. It applied well when a few colors were stolen from the crayon pile. They were pretty cute and surprisingly understanding. In 3 years it will be our baby running out of class to show us her drawings and the new Primary hymn she learned.

But right now she's moving into my sides and my ribs, and for the first time it's starting to hurt. I think she's finally running out of room.

I took a surprisingly comfortable 3 hour nap today. No shame.

Med school applications have me on edge lately and I'm not even the one applying! In so many ways, I'm just trying to get through this month.

Nothing like starting the "longest" trimester in the dog days of summer.
