Home at last

The trip to Illinois and Iowa went great. We were gone about a week. The temple was beautiful as usual. We got to see quite a few people in Iowa which was nice. I didn't make it to my HS reunion but really...that was fine. Spending time with family is more important. I drove home a week ago today and when I got here the car was gone. I just figured Wayne was at work but when Buzz didn't come to greet me at the door I knew something was amiss. I called Wayne on his cell phone and found out he and Buzz were in Georgia. Some surprise!! I was kinda bummed and my daughters both suggested flying there one way and then riding back with Wayne and Buzz. Then Don and Donna called making the same suggestion so I decided to do it. So I was home less than 12 hours and then flew out again. We had a great time visiting our friends (even if we did just play cards) and drove home on Wednesday. I have been busy getting everything caught up here at home which is not an easy task. I have lots to do still. I have some pictures on my phone but I'm not sure how to get them off. When I figure that out then I will post some.

On the road

Well not quite yet but very shortly. Things have changed here but I won't go into much detail. Michael and Rachel (my niece) carpooled here and arrived on Saturday evening. We spent a few days just hanging out but now it is time for me to start on another trip. Today we are going to the Oquirrh Mountain Utah temple open house. I will then leave to go to Denver. I will spend the night there and then it will be on to Wichita. I will spend the night there (and hopefully be able to see my granddaughters play ball) and then it will be on to Bentonville. I will spend the night there at my mother-in-laws house and then go up to Nauvoo. Then I will go to that temple with my brother-in-law and his family (they are going for the first time...SOOO exciting). This weekend is also my 30th high school reunion in Hudson IA so I am going to try to make it for some of the festivities there. I'm not sure how long we will stay in Iowa...that is up to my mother-in-law but we might stay a few days and then head back to Arkansas. Then I will finally be able to go home after 2 months...yeah.

I got a prepaid cell phone so if you need the number just call Michael or Julie.

Nothing better than...

Going to the temple!!! Today is Julie's birthday and we went to the Mount Timpanogos temple. A sweet neighbor watched the kids. Tonight we are going out to eat and then renting a movie for here.

Yes...I am still in Utah. Yes...I am lending her the support that she needs (I hope). No...I don't know when I will be returning home to Texas.

I enjoy reading everyone's posts even though I haven't commented at all.
