This has been my March, so far-
That's the Bad...
. . .the Good is that we Finally got a new, beautiful computer that runs at the speed of light. With a beautiful new monitor. (Our old one was a 10 year-old beast). And I will do my best to keep it from getting all messed up again.
The Missoula Children's Theater
This is an organization that travels all over the world organizing local grade school children and getting them ready to perform (in ONE week!) updated adaptations of fairy tales. Super fun story of Hansel and Gretel, and what a great experience for the kids. Noelle posted about it here in her 'Weekend Wafts of Wackiness' post.
. . .the Good is that both Issac and Noelle got parts in the play. More good is that I had quiet evenings the week that they were at practice. Gone from 8 am to 7:30 pm. aaaahhhhh.
Isaac, standing, first person on the left
Noelle, kneeling, second from the right.
My Sick Friend
. . . the Bad is that Noelle didn't get the lead! (To her, the lead was the Witch, in Hansel and Gretel). But she still had a great time and would do it again in a minute. More bad is that I really did miss them!...and it was also good that one of her best friends got to be Gretel!
Casey & Tami
These two are one of the cutest couples ever! They just got married about a week ago. Tami is a good friend of ours; have known her since she was in preschool. Casey is the super crazy brother of friends (and neighbors) of ours.
. . . the Good is that they are from two really great families.
. . . more good - they were married in the temple. They had a great reception. What a fun party it was!
. . . the Bad is that uuhhhh ummmm, well, I can't think of any bad! (But that's good!)
The Home in Kellogg
The one that we remodeled. Bought it almost 2 years ago.
. . . the Good is that we finally have someone who wants to BUY it!!! Wooo Hooo!
. . . the Bad is that we finally have someone who wants to buy it After we dropped the price like a rock, like, to less than what we have into it. But we ARE grateful, for sure!
. . .and the other bad is that we have to wait and see if the buyers will qualify for a loan. And these days, the deck is stacked not in our favor, if you know what I mean.
SO - We Need Your Prayers! For Real! Thank you so much. . .
My Sick Friend
My friend called me yesterday.
. . . the very Bad is that she told me, in a nutshell, that she would have her son call me later if she had a mini-stroke. The back story on that is she had had one just before giving birth to her second child, and was in danger of having another during the pregnancy and birth of her last child. So it was wise to have someone be alerted when exhibiting symptoms, since her husband was several hours away at the time. So after calling my husband to give her a blessing, I went over and sat with her until her husband arrived home.
. . . the Good is that by the time I got there, she felt well enough to chat, and chat we did! We had some great girl-bonding time, uninterrupted only by the occasional phone call and text! (Gotta luv those cell phones).
Tanner made this cute foam block necklace for me at preschool on Thursday.
. . . the Good is that he asked me to wear it yesterday, which I happily did. (He said "I made this for you, mommy, cuz I love you so much". How could I not wear it?!)
. . . he also put it on me this morning, and I left it on all day. (I wasn't planning on going anywhere too public)
. . . the Bad is, well, I'm kinda worried that he will ask me to wear it tomorrow.
Well, I'd better go and pick out my outfit. . .
