Books books books and yet I miss place the ones I need

We are beginning to have piles of books on every surface.  I need to find one to send to Heather and yet that is the one I can't find.  Heather I promise to keep looking and will send it then.

I think the problem is that all the stuff for the graduation party is in the house and that is a lot of stuff, here is a small list:  300 bags of Doritios, plates, napkins, plastic wear, cups, 8 24 count of pop, only 2 cases of water so far, yard signs and other decorations, large photo mounting sheets and then the other stuff that needs a home.  We are having walking tacos or tacos in a bag for the party.  What a mess and we have the new ceiling fan(in the box still) in that room also until we move it upstairs to mount at the top of the stairs that are still not there.  Screaming now.............

JT is funny

Spring is here at last.
He looked out in the yard before we mowed and happily reported that the lawn was even blooming and how pretty it looked.  Too bad it was the dandelions and purple flowers that grow from the creeping charlie.  It is good to know that someone appreciates the weeds in the yard.

A Peters's Hat trick

Yesterday we had ward conference and they announce that the boys were each a quorum president of their quo arm.  I had to think about it for a minute, I think I've been asleep during my life again.

Gunnar sang in Relief Society and then again at Seminary graduation.  Zeke played the piano, he is getting quite full of himself.  He told Gunnar he needed a break from practice and then Gunnar could use the time to work on his pitches.

Qatar wearing Grandpa's pants

Qatar had on a pair of linen looking cargo pants at church and I noticed a label on the side pocket and it was like the one above.  I said "Where did you get those pants?"  I didn't recognize them.  He said. "They are grandpa's pants"  "What?"  "Zeke said they are his."   I laughed that yes the label did say est. in 1967, but I still did not think there were grandpas pants.
This is the rest of the story.  Zeke found the pants in Gunnar's out grown stuff and wore then for a play because they reminded him of grandpa pants.  So he told this to Qatar and Qatar took it literally.  Qatar is blonde, at least in the summer time that is.

Tired and I need a vacation

Actually I'm more tired then stressed.  A bit stresses the other day.  Three people explained how to print from my computer to the office printer and I could not figure it out.  Finally I went to the tech service room and told them I had no printers to choose from and was it me(doing something wrong?)  No yeah!  Printers had not been installed so he explained how to do that and then I printed.  Yeah!!!!!  Paper packets needed for next week.  Whew...Megan was going to help me out otherwise.

Deca International in Orlando 2011

Gunnar on his way to Orlando.  His team mates parents had plans in the cities so they drove the two up for the night and then to the airport in the morning.  They had fun and went to Universal Studios and loved the Harry Potter world part.
Competition went well and they made it into the top 20 out of over 120 teams.  The second round wasn't as good with a question of security and travel.
 Top 20 metal and t-shirt.
They came home after 5 days in the sun feeling pretty good about the competition.  This was Gunnar first year in DECA and he did amazing.

Busy, Busy, Busy

Cenny coughed the whole weekend at Paiges and so on Monday she went to the DR. with grandma and I went to work to pay for the weekend and the DR.  She has pneumonia and her asthma is worse right now.  Poor girl, poor Paige I know what it is like to have Cenny cough all night, I woke up Monday thinking she was dead because she didn't wake me up with coughing.  Tussin saved us.

Thoughts

When Christ walked on the water to the ship during the storm, I thought about Peter.  He wanted to be with Christ so we asked to come to him and of course Christ said come and so Peter did.  As long as he kept his eyes on the Lord he was fine, it was only after he took his eyes from Christ and started to see the water and the wind did he fail.  He took his mind and his sight from the ultimate prize and that was when he started to sink.  If he had kept his eye on Christ he would have been fine.
 
    I think this is for all of us.  If we keep our eyes on the Lord we will keep our selves on the right track, it is only when we take our eyes and mind to other things that we lose our way.  Its not easy, but it is like driving.  We always look ahead when we drive.  If we only saw what was right in front of us we wouldn't be ready for turns or hazards in the road.  We look ahead to the Lord and to where we want to be in the future.  Keeping our eyes there  will keep us stay safe and helps us see know the hazards ahead.

  Just something I was thinking about.

Stinky house

  The stairs going up started to have a funny smell last week, I cleaned the bathrooms after the boys did to be sure it wasn't just dirty bathroom smell coming down the stairs.  The smell did not get better so I thought broken sewer pipe and I googled how to tell.  Peppermint oil down the drains and I didn't smell peppermint in the hall or the stairs.  I bleached everything in the bathrooms and could smell bleach, but the whole house smelled like bleach.   I got home from work on Wednesday and the smell about knocked me out.  Gunnar had just gotten home from Orlando so I told him to tell me about it while we walked around smelling for the source.

   Not in the basement, not in the attic, not anywhere I could pin point.  I knew the stairs were the starting point so I went to Gunnar's attic space and looked around, the smell wasn't there.  I glanced down and there was a fuzzy tail so I grabbed a bag and pulled out a dead squirrel and then the smell hit me and I almost threw-up.  I had found the source.  He was facing the stairs and there must me a down draft at that area that pulled the smell away from the attic space.  Stinky stinky, with the windows open all over the house we may get the smell out soon.  YUCK!!!!!
