10 on Tuesday

1. I've been MIA because I've been working on our taxes. They're a bit more complicated this year because we're renting out our house in Lethbridge. Not anything really hard, just more forms to fill out and tax mumbo jumbo to decipher. So several 1am nights, and Sean taking a second look at things and we finally got our taxes done and filed! And we get a sweet return too. Last year that's going to happen ;-)

2. The kids have spring break this week. Really weird that it's not coinciding with Easter, but oh well. We've run away to Lethbridge for the week, and Sean is frantically finishing up two projects in a quiet house.

3. Since we've moved into Grandma's house for the week and already ate all the buns, we got up early this morning and made more Grandma buns.Nothing better than fresh hot Grandma Buns!

Mixing the dough

notice Maggie sneaking a taste

guess she doesn't like the taste of flour

rolling out the buns

The dough's good!


4. I read this article last night. What a great reminder of how blessed I am, and how I can improve personally. I sure love you Sean!

5. In 12 more days Sean and I will be leaving for Mexico. I CAN'T WAIT!!!!

6. I decided to put both Kaden and Anise in soccer this year. Anise has soccer the same night as Kaden has cubs, so hopefully things don't get too crazy that night.

7. Sometimes I randomly buy a bouquet of flowers. I like having fresh flowers in the house. I think it makes the house happier and brighter.

8. Sean has officially been accepted as a locum in the Lethbridge Emergency Department! Wahooo!

9. I'm trying really hard to live in the present and enjoy it. Which is hard because Sean is so close to being done residency, which means we are so close to moving back to Lethbridge, which means we are so close to having our house back. But I need to enjoy the time we have left in Calgary, because there really are a lot of great things about being there. And even if there wasn't, it's where my husband is, and I would much rather be wherever he is.

10. I'm looking forward to General Conference this weekend. I'm always amazed at how many of the talks are written specifically for me. Truly inspired.
