Today was a good day. My sickness is finally clearing up. I went to all my church meetings, first time this year. It was great to see my ward friends finally. I did go last week, but it was stake conference. Elder Perry (the apostle) came and spoke to us. It was an awesome experience. I had to leave stake conference early because of my coughing fits. I'll tell you that my sickness was a doozey! It was the longest cold I've ever had! I also developed a sinus infection. I did go to a doctor, because I was afraid I might have pneumonia. I just a BAD cold. I came down with my cold mid December, and still am having quite a cough. I've decided I'm good enough to return to society. I'm so grateful for the good health I do have. You sure do learn to appreciate your health more when it's gone.
I went to Utah Dec. 17th and didn't return until the first Sunday of Jan. My older sister, Shasta, blessed her baby that day, and we left right after the blessing to hurry home to San Diego before the bad traffic hit. We didn't beat it, we were right in the middle, and it ended up taking 14 hours to get home. My dad rode home with us so he could stay a couple of weeks in the beautiful weather. It was great having him here and I think he enjoyed it, even though we didn't have cable. He struggled at first not being able to watch the news. But he would call home and have one of my sisters put the phone next to the 5 o'clock news.
It was really nice going back to Cedar. It was the first time I'd been back since we moved. I was able to see all of my family (minus one brother-in-law in Montana). Also a lot of my cousins and aunts and uncles, many of whom I haven't seen in years. I got my braces off while I was in utah. I eat lots of apples now and chew gum again. Jer and I were able to go snowboarding with some of our best friends, the Christians.
I hate that I'm so far behind again. I don't like playing catch up. I'm just going to call that post good, even though it's not half of what I wanted to write. I think I'll go check on your blog now.
