I caught her singing while reading her semi shredded Monica magazine. There is a little lizard in there that looks like a dinosaur, which explains the growling.
Last Friday, Jake and I went on our monthly date. We went dancing. There is a place in town that has a dance with a live band on the first Friday of the month. I'd had this date on our calendar for at least a couple months, so even when we had to purchase a new choke AC airhandler, we were still determined to go and join some fun friends there. We had a blast. We have a pretty good handle on basic swing and a few of the other dances (though we could stand to learn a lot more), but we tried our hand at the tango a couple of times and pretended like we knew how to Lindy. The band never announced a Lindy Hop, but the song said we could try. We remembered some steps between the two of us and commenced jumping, turning, and sweating. I was beaming. There is no other word. I don't think my smile could have gotten any bigger. I usually have a nice time with my husband whenever we go out together, but there is something about having an open floor, good music, and no cares if anyone else sees you being a total spaz with your husband. Beaming. That was such a good date.
General Conference was fantastic. What a lift. I'm excited for the Conference Ensign to come so I can go through the words again.
So, my dad called me this morning to make sure we were alright since our city was on the news in Utah regarding tornado weather. I didn't realize it had gotten that bad. There was a warning set for last night while I was at the youth activity (Bishopric Challenge -go Mia Maids!), but it was just rain at that point. At about 3AM this morning the lightening and rain woke Jake and me up, but I was mainly annoyed that it wouldn't quiet down so I could sleep. I didn't want to get Tessa up to hunker down in the bathroom. I'm not a real clear thinker when I'm tired. It didn't get awful where we are, thank heavens.
Other than that, I taught a class this week, had a friend in town on business, barbecues, Biggest Loser viewing, jogging, Chat n Chocolate duo, Tiny Tots Tunes luncheon, creeped out by polygies in Texas, AC guys over 3 times (we now have a French drain outside ooh la la), tub doctor over once, etc., etc.
Her hair has no weight (my fault) besides growing forward (Dad's fault.) This is just water from me finishing the ponies in her hair.The Office is back on tonight!
