Well, everything is going well here these days. Today is the day that Eric should be able to register for the one class that he needs so that he can qualify for all the graphic design classes that he needs to take so that he can (eventually) graduate (Wa-Hoo!). This morning as I left, he was on-line, trying to get registered, and encountering some technical difficulties. I hate technical difficulties.
Tonight we have a thrilling evening planned. Eric is meeting with as many of the 14-18 year-old boys in our ward as he can get to come over, and they're going to plan out some of the service projects, scouting work, and recreation activities that they're going to be doing for the next few months. As for me, I'm going to attempt to price carpet shampoo rentals. Our carpet hasn't been deep cleaned in several years now, and it's probably time.
My biggest accomplishment of the day is that I voted. I'll admit that this is one election day that I won't be sorry to see end. In addition to all the controversy and noise about vouchers, the town that Eric and I live in (a bedroom community really) has been embroiled in what appears to be a dispute about growth, which is coming to a head as a dispute about water (as nearly as I can tell, anyway). There's probably no need to go into details, so I'll just say that the discussion has gotten quite ugly and unhappy from time to time.
And that's the story today. As I look over this post, it sounds a little on the discouraging side. I guess technical difficulties, carpet shampooing, and community discord don't make for rosy blog posts do they? All that notwithstanding, I stand by the first sentence I wrote. Everything is going well here these days. The sun is out, and there's not a cloud in the sky. I'm employed at a job that I enjoy, surrounded by friends and family that I love, and when I woke up this morning, I didn't have a single ache or pain anywhere in my marvelously efficient body. Not bad for a little girl from southern Utah.
Until next time,
