< Sabbath-day Silliness
When did I become "uncool"? >

[Comments] (2) Just Because: After Sacrament meeting today I was asked to meet with the EQ President for a Home Teaching PPI. I really don't think having PPI's in Sunday School is appropriate, but whatever. I also mentioned to him that I teach primary and one of our children has Down's Syndrome so I really ought to be there on time. He didn't seem to care.

I got lectured a little for not home teaching. Never mind the fact that I have never officially been given the calling. I don't even go to EQ. My companion did introduce himself to me, but he never told me who we actually teach. Anyway, I got berated nonetheless and was on my way back to Primary when the EQ President mentions that he needs my phone number. Why? Because he is my home teacher. And we haven't been home taught once in the seven months we have lived here. I gave him the number and reminded him that his counsellor has our number, as we are pretty decent friends. Grr.

That aside, I am quite happy today. Maybe it's because it is 75 degrees outside. Maybe it's because my CPA is over. Who knows. I just feel like listing off some of my happiness today:

I like my job. It's demanding, and working mandatory 55 hours through 4/15 isn't much fun, but the day goes by so quickly I can't even keep up. I like that in a job.

I love teaching Primary. The kids are so much fun, and tailoring the lesson to their needs helps me exercise my creative side a lot. And it gets me out of EQ.

I love our ward. To put it bluntly, BYU student wards suck. Family wards rock. Everyone has been so kind and welcoming to us. We are friends with a lot of the young couples, but also are pretty friendly with some of the older couples as well, including all the parents of our nursery/primary kids. It feels nice to be welcome.

We still don't have teevee hookup. I love it so much. It forces me to read, get outside and exercise, out to the beach. And I missed the stupid parade of the State of the Union. Nuff said.

I love going to Disneyland, even if the Rainforest Cafe doesn't honor our AP discount after 4 pm. The bananas foster was yum!

I love having a temple nearby.

I love playing the piano. Note to self: Play it more.

Most of all, I love my family. I love my sister's standing offer for Sunday dinners at her house. I love frequenting Bakersfield monthly to see my in-laws. I love my wife and look forward to expanding our own family one day, so I don't have to steal everybody else's kids forever.

That's about it.
