Traffic for 2006 December 18 (entry 0)

[Comments] (3) You never can tell with Busy Bees: Busy lately. The weekend of Dec 9-10 Susie and I attended a primary breakfast with Santa, went to the temple, and attended a Christmas party wherein it was determined that Susie and I know each other better than any other couple present. This party also consisted of a white elephant gift exchange, wherein I received a belt hanger that I actually like. It's funny, because I always thought that white elephant meant wrapping up junk around the house, but it seemed that most of the couples went out and actually bought junk to wrap. And yet, the junk from around our house was the most fought-after gift of the entire party (a Williams Sonoma pumpkin bundt pan that we never used).

This week I spent slaving over the piano learning how to play a funky rendition of "Silent Night" for the ward choir. I doctored the music quite a bit, and it actually sounded ok. Not sure how the choir sounded; wasn't really paying attention.

Then we moved. Rachel and I, in 8 hours, moved everything from our old apartment to the new. We also cleared out our storage closet full of baby stuff into "Rachel's room." Saturday the missionaries and the EQ presidency came and helped us move the hutch, fridge, piano, couch, and bed. And they did a much better job than our $2K movers did when they moved us in! What a joke. I felt guilty for using the EQ when I never help with moves (I blame being primary, but who am I kidding?) so I got them all Jamba Juice gift cards. And we're taking the missionaries out to CPK tonight.

The new place. I felt very hesitant to unpack the sheet music and bookshelves, and for good reason. Last night our neighbor complained about the piano, so I moved it onto the wall by our bedroom so as not to disturb his idiot box time. And actually the place looks much better that way. Luckily the baby's room is on the outside, so he can't complain about that....

Yesterday, primary was very chill. We watched the Peanuts Christmas show, made Christmas cards, and ate rice krispie treats. The kids deserved an easy Sunday, and so did I. We find out Wed who our new class is for next year (apparently good help is hard to find and we are not being released, in spite of the beet).

Yesterday in sharing time the kids dressed up as BoM characters and we had to guess who they are. Parker, a three year old, yelled out "It's Captain Jack Sparrow." It wasn't; it was Samuel the Lamanite. And here I thought Samuel the Lamanite was a gingerbread man....

Finished Lost: Season 2 last night. Very interesting show.

Leave for UT Friday. For now: Back to work.

You should take down the mirrors. I can't believe your neighbor complained about your lovely piano playing!
