It's like it says in regards to the title of my post.It's been a year of losing someone you love,a year of helping out your neighbor when they need it,a year of being sick & going through a scary fire & a year of doing fun things.Next year,who knows.It could be either a good or a bad one.I hope that it's a good one for me,but if it isn't I'll just have to make the best of it!Well,I'll post more tomorrow!

Boy,what a day it was today!I had a fun day yesterday,but today was a little different for me.I've got my turn at giving the lesson next week,so I need to prepare for it.The next lesson I'll be giving is the Christmas lesson.I love these kids.I know that next month we'll be going to the1-4 schedule for church.It'll be alot easier for me as well as the rest of them because then the kids will be well rested from the night before.I'll also be getting a whole new class as well.Well,I'll post more later or tomorrow!
Monday, November 26, 2012
Well,it's like it says in the title of this post that today was a busy day for me.4 loads of laundry got done as well as my bathroom being cleaned.So far,so good for that!Tomorrow's another busy day for me as well because I get to clean my room!Yippee!Afterwards,it'll be clean for another week.Well,I'll post more later!
Thursday, November 15, 2012
Well,it's like it says in my title that I need to work on my listening skills better than they are right now.My sister,Megan,pointed something out to me that I need to let someone else talk or speak for a change & that I need to listen to what they have to say in regards to making conversation.I think that's the best advice ever.I do need to listen to what someone else has to say for a change.I'm making a promise that I'll listen to what someone else has to say for a change.Well,I'll either blog or post more soon!
Monday, November 12, 2012
Well,it's like it says in the title of my post or blog that I'm trying to do good right now,but all I'm doing is bad things right now.I didn't really know that some websites were bad & just charge me money out of my account,but now I'm learning my lesson.If I can get my money back,I'll never go into those sites or websites again.I promise!I'll probably have to fill out a form to cancel or ask for my money back from those sites,but I'll be very lucky if I do.Well,I'll blog or post some more in the next day or two!
Sunday, November 11, 2012
Well,it's like the title of my post says,I did have a great day & it's because of my lesson that I taught to my primary kids about how we can forgive others.I included in my lesson a true story about me that my Mom wrote for me to give in church when I was 11 years old.It talks all about me & what had happened to me because I was teased when I was a little girl & how I got help for it.When the kids or boys that did tease me realized that they couldn't make me cry by teasing me,they would hit me & make me cry by hitting me.I gave that talk on a Sunday morning in church & there wasn't even a dry eye in the congregation.Afterwards,I got a phone call from someone who I attended church with who was a Mother to one of the boys or two of them who would tease me to say to me how much she loved my talk.Later that year,it got published in the October 1976 edition of The Friend magazine.I got a free copy in the mail when they had it ready for mailing or my grandmother had a subscription to it before she died.I read it & was so happy for it to be published in that magazine & I still am.My class sort of loved it when I had involved that story about me in regards to their lesson today.I love my class & would do anything for them.I even love my neighbor's kids as well.They're very sweet children & they love me as well even when I'm there helping them out.I'd never trade them for anything in the world because they're very nice neighbors & I'm actually talking about the Jacksons.They're the best neighbors that anyone could ever ask for.If I ever need anything,all I have to is just call them(even if it's a priesthood blessing).Last Sunday,I posted about my best friend & her family that live in Tooele,Utah.I called them last Monday night & I spoke to them & I told them how sorry I was to hear about their son,Cole & posted an entry into his guestbook.I meant every word that was said in the entry.Well,I'll post more in the next day or two,so be prepared!For all of those who are or have served in our wars,Happy Veteran's Day!
Thursday, November 8, 2012
Well,it's like I said in regards to the title of this post.It's been over a week since it was here.I saw alot of trick or treaters that night,but I was the one who passed out the candy.I mentioned in my last post that we ran out of candy before the night was over,so I told the rest of the trick or treaters that I'm sorry that we were out of candy,so I went inside & just locked the door & called it a night.Well,I'll post more either tomorrow night or the next!
Monday, November 5, 2012
Boy,what a month I had last month.First of all,I just found out that a friend(best)of mine that I know from when I had lived in Tooele,Utah had lost her youngest son to having seizures from an unknown source whom I had loved very much.His name was Cole Michael Reidling & he was only 9 years old & had passed away on October 24th.On halloween,I passed out the candy to the trick or treaters & had run out of candy before the night was over.But some exciting news to tell you & that is I had just upgraded my phone on Saturday.I went from a Samsung Intensity 2 to an iPhone 4 & am loving it!Well,I'll post again soon,so be prepared!
Thursday, October 11, 2012
Well,it's like the title of my post says "The Best Day Of Them All" right now is today.I had my sister send me a text for some things today & she was right on them.I souldn't be doing the things that I do as often as I do & am promising her right now that I won't do what I've been doing in regards to the internet anymore.If I need anything,I'll ask myself if I really need it & then say yes or no to it.But as far as today goes,I'm going to work & nothing but work(maybe I'll get my lesson done today as well).Well,I'll post or blog more tomorrow or the next.
Monday, October 1, 2012
Well,as I said for my title,today's a beautiful day!Not much planned for today except the library,baking a pie for my neighbors,laundry & cleaning.I know,in regards to doing or getting my laundry done it may sound quite boring,but to me,it's a twice a week thing to do.The kind of pie that I'm making is a pecan pie & the recipe was found online.I've not made one in a long time,but I'm following the recipe & just hoping for the best outcome.I've burned pies before & some I haven't,so I need to have a little patience with doing this.Well,I'll post more tomorrow!Until then,keep your curoisity open & just be excited for my next post!

Well,as you can tell from the title of my post of what I'm thankful for & that's my 4 oldest nieces right now because they just lost their Father last night.They're all very sad right now & I don't really blame them for being that way.When my Father passed away about 18 years ago,I was that way.To my nieces LeeAnne,Julee,Jennalee & Leslee,I'm so very sorry for the loss of your Father.I know how much all of you loved him & will miss him.Just say your prayers & he'll be right there for you.Well,I'll post more tomorrow or the next.

Wel,it's true!This was an easy day for me because I'm awake on only less than 8 hours of sleep.I'd usually be throwing fits right now but it wouldn't work for me,so I just ordered some things from Avon.Com today & that took care of it,besides emptying the dishwasher late!After I post,I'm off to sleepland for the night & then tomorrow I'll start the day anew.well,that's it for now.I'll post again later.

Well,I had the very best gift of all come to me tonight & that was calling my Aunt Nancy(my Dad's sister)& just talking to her to ler her know that I'm doing o.k.I'm not crying sad tears right now,but happy ones.It's been over 10 years since we spoke to each other & it was such a very good conversation,but she didn't call me.I called her.We spoke for over an hour & it was very good to hear her voice.It was my brother Mike's idea that I should call her & I did that just tonight.She's my favorite Aunt & nothing will stop me from loving her.Nothing at all.Over a week ago,I found out about my adopted cousin,Jodi & was asking about her & how she was doing.This is the very best gift I could ever ask for.Well,my family is the very best gift that I could ever ask for right now.If I didn't have my family,I wouldn't know where I'd be.Well,I'll post more tomorrow.
Friday, August 10, 2012
Well,today was just like any other day for me.Laundry,Dishes,etc.Maybe tomorrow will be different for me(maybe not).It's a wait & see period for now.I've been going onto Facebook lately & have been posting my pictures from my tablet whenever I can get the chance to do it.A week ago last Thursday,I did some artwork for my sister Megan & when she got home from work that evening,we put some vinyl flowers on the pictures that were painted over with white paint & hung them in the loft between 2 chairs on the wall & I've been getting some really good comments on Facebook about them & I'm very impressed with what I can do with just a little paint,some vinyl flowers & some time & patience.I never knew that I could really do something like that & what it could turn out to be.Who knows,this could be my little niche in life to do!I've just got to think about what I want to make & I'll be able to do it!This took me over 2 hours to make as well!My sister put a mirror between the 2 pictures & it still looks good!I'll blog or post more tomorrow!
Wednesday, August 8, 2012
Well,it's been a week since I blogged,so here goes.Today was just an ordinary day for me except I colored my hair to get rid of the or my gray hair.Yes,gray hair!!!I'm 48 years old & I've got gray hair until today.I'd say it's a big difference!!!I also did it because I definitely needed a change of pace.Gray hair?Hah!!!It's gone for now!!!Well,I'll blog more tomorrow for sure!!!
Wednesday, August 1, 2012
Well,today was an easy day for me.I got the recycling emptied as well as the dishwasher & ride my bike.I also went on Facebook the other night & I found out about one of my adopted cousins having stage 2 breast cancer & is undergoing chemotherapy.I wish her all the best that she'll be better soon & that it's in remission.A week ago last Sunday,I called one of my Dad's cousins named Martha Hatch & she was so glad to hear from me.It's been over 5 years since we've spoken & she mentioned that my favorite cousin,Cathy,was in town visiting friends & family.I told my Dad's cousin,Martha,that I was doing o.k.Boy,was she surprised to really hear from me & it was good to hear from her as well.Well,I'll either blog or post more later on tonight or tomorrow.
Sunday, July 29, 2012
Well,it's another Sunday that's done & over with!!!I had called my dear friend that I know that lives in Tooele this afternoon or evening,whom I haven't spoken to since before Christmas or Thanksgiving even to let her know that I was doing o.k.She's been my dear friend since 2007(July 14 or so).She always will be until she dies!!!She was there for me when my Mother had passed & if she needs me,I'll be there for her.I'm now thinking of that song that was the theme song for that TV show "Friends"that sung by the Rembrandts "I'll be there for you" & am thinking about what she does or did for me!Her name's Reeda Whitehouse & she's been the coolest person in my life & I in hers!We both have callings in the church in primary & are there for our primary kids!I wouldn't leave mine without saying"Goodbye"to them first!Well,I'll try to blog or post again tomorrow!
Friday, July 27, 2012
Well,another week's gone by & what a week it's been!!!I totally forgot to blog or post for the past week!I meant to,but have or had other things to do.I'm blogging or posting right now & am back helping my neighbor out with her kids doing activities or projects.I'm watching the opening ceremonies of the Olympics right now.The news was scheduled for being on right now,but it's coming on after the opening ceremonies of the Olympics.It's going to be on for 3 weeks,but it'll be worth it for the athletes & the countries they represent.I'm pulling for the United States right now,but no medals have been won yet.
Friday, July 20, 2012
Well,I just found out last night that a friend of mine,Cathy Ramsey's in the hospital right now & isn't doing well at all.She's also my sister's friend as well.She's got cancer & is wishing she didn't have it at all.Please,Cathy!Get well soon!You are loved by your husband & friends who all know you.Well,I'll blog or post more soon!!!!
Friday, July 13, 2012
Well,today was a different day for me.Besides going for a bike ride,my niece,Caeleigh is spending the night with us.I haven't really had the chance to see her for a couple of months,so she's over here for the night or weekend.I promised her a trip to the park when the weather got warmer,so I hope she wants to do that tomorrow.Well,I'll blog or post more tomorrow.Also,it rained today as well.
Thursday, July 12, 2012
Well,it's like I said.What a day I had today!It was a hot one!I got out to ride my bike & it was very windy outside & my bike got blown over,but I picked it up & rode it.No damage to it,of course.Now,it's to bed I go!I'll blog or post more tomorrow.
Wednesday, July 11, 2012
Well,today was a hot one!We hit 100 degrees today(maybe hotter)!Tomorrow's gonna be about the same as to in regards to it being hot.I don't really know in regards to temperature what we'll hit,but I or we're prepared a/c wise.I hadn't really had this in a long time,but I made me a root beer float in a glass today!It's very simple to make.Just go to the store & buy a container of ice cream & a bottle of root beer(or diet if you prefer it).Get a clean glass from the cupboard where you keep them & put it on the counter or butcher block.Get your bottle of root beer & the ice cream & put the ice cream in a glass(I put in 3 scoops).Then,pour the root beer over the ice cream & enjoy.This is a good(really)summer treat.You can do the root beer at room temperature if you want.I can also make cream soda floats as well.
Tuesday, July 10, 2012
Well,today's being called"The Most Fun Day Of All!!!"because it was my ward's activity day's Parent/Child activity.It was done like the Olympics,but it was Parent vs. Child.They had many different activities for the parents & children to do like toss the frisbee,noodle limbo,minute to win it stuff,water balloon volleyball & then afterwards,mini treats for everyone.Well,more to come tomorrow!Same time.Same blog or post.

Well,I got out on my bike today & went down to the library to return some things & check out some new ones.I just got done watching that movie called"The Great Gatsby" that written by F.Scott Fitzgerald.I thought it was written by Earnest Hemingway,but I'm wrong on that part.Well,I'll post or blog more later.
Sunday, July 1, 2012
Well,this is what I'm grateful for:My sister,My home & especially for my friends & my neighbors(especially The Jacksons:Coy,Gina,Katie,Ava,Josh & Olivia).They're the very best neighbors anyone could ever ask for.The day we had the fire out here,my neighbor Coy called me to see if I was o.k. & he asked if he could watch our house for us & I said "Please do!" We didn't want to come back here & have no house to return to because of the fire.They know that I'll do anything for them even if it means to do babysitting for them.I'd do it pro bono for them,just like I helped out my neighbors,The Powells,when Inndia,Alex & Ashton were alive.Whenever she needed me,I was there for her.If that's not what a good neighbor's for,I don't know who is!Well,I'll post again tomorrow.

Well,this is it!This the night life.The time where we bring out our party animal in us.I don't really party at times like this,but who knows.I just might.I recieved a text from my 2nd niece & she was asking me to go to the zoo & see the fireworks at Sugarhouse Park on the 4th of July.Fun,huh?I think so.I've not been to the zoo in about a year with my niece(2nd) & her kids.I'm definitely going to have fun on that day.I haven't seen my 1st great-nephew,Zane & his sisters,Emilee & Rylee.I'm spending the night as well.Well,I'll post some more tomorrow.
Well,it's like I said,today was a fun day for me.I helped my neighbor out with her kids & I read 3 stories to them,but they became bored & left to play with the toys.After a while,I came home to be with our cats(Maxwell,Mira,Nala & Brandy).Just before I had gone to help my neighbor out,I went for a walk & got out for some fresh air.What a day,huh?I think so.Well,it's late.I'll post again tomorrow.
Wednesday, June 27, 2012
Well,here it is!Another beautiful,hot day.It's going to be 90 degrees today.I'm sorry for not posting a blog last night,but I fell to illness to where I felt just awful.Today,I'm feeling much better,so I'll blog twice(this morning & this evening).I was texting with my sister,Megan & she was asking how I was feeling & I told her that I was feeling much better.I added into one of my messages sent back to her:"pain compared to no pain.No pain is better for me."She said in a text back to me:"Who likes to be in pain?"I said:"Nobody.That's for sure."I wasn't even acting like I was in pain.It just hit me when I least expected it to.So,I'm awake to another beautiful day.I'll just focus on that for today.Well,I'll post again later.
Monday, June 25, 2012
Well,I had fun just staying inside today,but hopefully I'll get outside tomorrow.I just lounged around the house & worked on things.I promise tomorrow will be better.I also stayed in where it was cool & I had a/c.All those working outside today,ouch from the sunburn.If you covered up,smart move.Maxwell's been sneezing for a few days,so the vet put him on antihistamines so he wont sneeze anymore.I hope he's doing a little better tomorrow.He was even sneezing in the hotel room that he was in last Friday night.Well,I'll post some more tomorrow.
Sunday, June 24, 2012
Well,today wasn't treating me fair or good at all.I wasn't well & so I stayed home from church,but I called my teaching partner to tell her that I wasn't feeling well.I got some rest(or alot of)& tomorrow's going to be a better day for me.I'm so very glad to be home now.Spending the night in a hotel room,well if I did it again,it'll be for my own good.Last Friday night,I called my brother before going out for dinner to tell him I was o.k.After I got back from going out for dinner,I called a friend of mine from Tooele & I told that I was doing o.k.& told her about the fire out here & I talked to her daughter as well.My friend has 3 children(2 boys & a girl).My friend's name from Tooele is:Amy Reidling.Her children's names are:Christian,Kendall & Cole.They're all very sweet & loving & caring as well.Well,I'll post some more tomorrow.I need the rest.
