Double duty, crying, heartburn, blue l.e.d.s and a lack of bloggage...

double-duty:  So today and last night were a bit stressful.  I'll start with yesterday morning.  I got a call from Brother Rickson in my bishopric and was surprised to hear him ask me to give a talk in sacrament meeting.  I said yes and then told him that I was also teaching Gospel Doctrine... perhaps in hopes that he would retract his invite, but he didn't mention it and just carried on with the conversation!  Subtle-attempt-at-getting-out-of-speaking FAIL!  So last night I had to plan both my talk and my lesson.  I feel like neither was great because I didn't give either enough time to develop.  Oh well... the important thing is that I'm done with double-duty, and I didn't get booed out of my lesson or off the stand.
crying:  As I was leaving home yesterday I mentioned to my mom that the week ahead of me was going to be very tough.  "If ever there was going to be a week where I called home from school crying... this would be it."  I'm frankly very scared.  I don't know if I'm going to be able to get through all of it with the grades I want.  My GIS class as I mentioned a couple posts ago is NOT treating me well.  I'll live, but hopefully I'll be happy with the outcome.
heartburn:  I don't think I've ever experienced heartburn until the past few weeks.  It's not great.  I don't like it.  And I wish to voice my opinion that it should be stopped.  That is all.
blue l.e.d. christmas lights:  I know some of you have heard me rant about them before, but I really don't like the new l.e.d. Christmas lights that are blue.  People think I'm crazy when I say this, but they hurt my eyes.  Yesterday, as I helped my mom put up her new l.e.d. Christmas lights, I finally figured out why.  I like the colors of her lights, but the blue ones are different.  She and I went out to her sidewalk to look at the lights when they came on in the evening.  I noticed that when I looked directly at the bulbs of the blue ones (my mom has the large-style lights) they're all fuzzy and my eyes won't focus on them!  The other colors... my eyes can focus on them just fine.  (I like the green.)  But when I stared directly at the blue ones, they look all blurry!  So they've been messing with my eyes from a distance all this time that I've been complaining about them.  So there!  I'm NOT crazy!  (Provided ranting about Christmas lights doesn't qualify me for crazy.)
a lack of bloggage:  As mentioned before... this next week is going to be tough.  And unless I'm going to be shirking on my school-work, you should probably not see me on here for a while.  The semester ends next week.  Wish me luck!

k, see ya.


  1. HATE HATE HATE those blue lights. I'm totally with you, crazy or not.

  2. I thought the very same thing when I looked at Mom's lights. Also, get some Tums. I have to take them every freaking night. Good luck with school this week and finals! Once you get home, we'll have a mean game of Boggle (I guess Lin has already offered up her house as a gathering place).
