Friday Fave Five!!!!

1. Mosiah 2:41 and 2 Nephi 5:27 (I may have to double check these references, but my quad isn't handy). BE HAPPY! Our RS challenged us all to read the Book of Mormon again over the next 6 months and gave us each a calendar. Loving the result of feeling happier, calmer, and more at peace, even amidst drama and stupidity.

2. Kiddo's "fun run" today. The elementary school put on a run. She didn't ask me if she could participate, just came home at the beginning of the week with a map and a note and said, "I turned in my slip, so I need to be at the school early on Friday." Yeah, early, like 7:45. She had fun and did great, and didn't seem too disappointed that she didn't win.

3. I've lost 5 pounds in the last 2 weeks. Thank you "Mama Mafia" and no soda!

4. The guys at PC Provo found a key logger on hubby's computer this week plus cleaned it, and they fixed my laptop when it had the Trojan a while back. Thanks Paul. (if you use them, give them my name so I get 15% off next time we do something stupid ...) And when he says "affordable," he means it. Both times it ran around $50.

5. Being where I am in life. No, things aren't perfect. No, all of our problems aren't fixed. No, we're not magically financially sound. We are, however, happy and so are our kids, and hubby has been reading his scriptures and Ensign, too. We're all going to try and get to church again on Sunday. Plus, I do like my job (even if they didn't acknowledge national MT week for weirdness), and I love my little family.

Whoa, wait a minute - 7:45 is EARLY to school? Our first bell rings at 7:45, late at 7:55. What time does she get out?

starts at 9:05, out at 3:30. they're changing to extended days next year, not sure when she'll start.

Holy cow - ours starts an hour and 10 minutes earlier and only gets out 15 minutes earlier.

I also noticed this week that Phineas and Ferb's claim of 105 days of summer vacation is fantasy. School starts 91 days from today (not sure if today on the calculator is Monday or Tuesday) and this year isn't even over until Thursday noon, so like 88 or 89 days. P&F get at least 2-1/2 extra weeks off.

I love Mosiah 2:41.... I have it cross referenced to Mosiah 2:22, check it out :)
