Nothing to Say....

I sit here without much to say, but I'm avoiding loads of work that has piled up on my desk the last few days and I don't want to do any of it. Blogging about nothing sounds much more fun. Been kind of quiet around here. Parker and Bill participated in the Klondike, a sort of scout sport winter Olympics. I didn't get many details. It just involved a sled that they built a few weeks ago. Scouts are crazy. Who camps in the winter? Girls aren't that dumb.

I've had loopy, crazy dreams the last few weeks (thanks to a variety of medications I've been on for one reason or another). I can almost guarantee any of you reading this has had a crazy roll in at least one of them. I actually kind of enjoy the ride. It's weird to wake up and be in reality again. It's fun to find yourself on an estate in Arizona with an ocean view...that was the most recent. My dear friend, Tami, was in my dream a few nights ago. She died 10 years ago this week and I'm really missing her. She was in the backseat of my car (in the dream) and I couldn't believe I could just talk to her. It was really wonderful. I can't believe it's been 10 years. It doesn't seem like it could be that long.

All in all, life is good. Challenges are constant and daily these days, but I feel like I'm handling things o.k. Parker has not been in a great Asperger's phase, but we are finding some solutions. 5th grade seems to be a bit of a transition period for him and he isn't always dealing with it in the most appropriate way. Our home teachers came over tonight, and we were just shooting the breeze about stuff when Parker pipes up to say "Could we just get to the lesson now so this can be over?" Total honesty. Never a good thing. He is the Ying to my Yang when it comes to social situations.

Well...that's it. Not much else to say. I will try to find some more exciting activities to share on my blog soon. Have a happy week!

Oh man, we could probably all use a little more of Parker in us, especially involving Home Teachers! It was fun to get an update--I hope I haven't been too out of line in your dreams. And I'm glad you got to have sweet time with Tami, even in your dreams. It must have been sad to wake up from that one.

I can't believe it's been 10 years. What a tough year for our ward. I talk about Tami every chance I get with my Beehives. I always tell them they can make a differnce. And then I tell them about Tami and the impact she made on so many people.
