General Conference and BYU Football




This weekend was a nice and relaxing one - there is something to be said for having real reasons to stay at home and watch TV. Friday night was football, and so far BYU has had a good season, providing our home with a happy Lars. I am not kidding when I say that Lars really takes these games to heart - heaven help us if the cougars lose, in fact I think Lars started letting his mood go when USU scored their first TD. USU was not going to win, but Lars was frustrated none the less. Our big discussion now is how he is going to get to Birmingham for the UofU BYU game on Nov. 22 considering that baby girl is being born on the 17th.... Stay tuned for that discussion....

Conference was great! I felt that there was an overall theme of finding Joy in the process. What do you all think? Perhaps that was what I needed to hear. I have had a number of professors and teachers say that if you will go into Genenral Conference with three things that are on your mind and then prayerfully listen, you will be uplifted and feel that your concernes/ thoughts are being addressed. This has always been proven true for me and I was crying (not a rare occurance lately) during many talks thankful for answers to my prayers. I especially loved Elder Wirthlin's talk Saturday afternoon - I laughed out loud a couple of times and can't wait to re-read it. Now if I were really blog savy I would provide a link for you to click on it and read it - but that's not me yet.

So now I am off to change a messy diaper and try to find Joy in the process.....

Lars can bring the boys and come up here for the game. Your mom will still be there. We'll entertain the boys while he watches the game with my friends. It's just an idea???

Call me and I'll talk you through adding a link. It's really easy, once someone points out how to do it.

The blog is lookin' good!

Sure makes for a great lazy weekend! I'll have to remember that tip for the next conference about keeping three things on my mind.
