He came crawling through his doggy door, with his nose down, to my feet where he rolled over, apologizing for what he did. "No, you better go back outside." I told him. He slowly turned around, crawled back outside, and resumed his original position until the rest of the family came home.
Yes, he was one bad puppy. But his behavior cracks me up. He knows he was bad and he was so sorry. He always is. He wants to be good. He just can't help himself. I can understand that. I want to be good, too. And most of the time I am. But like everyone, I have weaknesses. His just happens to be the kitchen garbage.

Currently Computerless: My cord to my computer got caught in the hinge of the hide-a-bed at my parents' house and I discovered the damage that had been done when I was getting set to settle in front of a movie and work on a project. Project didn't get done. And I am out a computer until I can get a new cord. Bummer.
Currently Keyless: Keeping track of my keys is a daily objective for me. This last weekend my last original disappeared somewhere along the Provo river. It is really a mystery because I had it hooked on good and tight. Fortunately, I do have a couple of spares. FYI: It doesn't help to keep your spare key in your car.

We saw lots of signs on our recent road trip. This one was my favorite. Any thoughts as to why…?
Imagine you are on a road trip, and in no hurry to get to your destination, so you are stopping at random geological and historical sites along the way. You see this one. You’ve never heard of Adam-ondi-ahman, so you decide to check it out. You arrive and you ask the nice couples working there, “So, what historical event happened here?” Their reply, “Well…um…it’s kinda where history began.”
I thought it was amusing.=)

This little lady joined our family on Sunday. We are so excited to have her and can’t imagine life without her. Grace May Hintze. Or already better known as Gracie or sweet heart or precious.
Now, I have two loves of my life and the joy just keeps on growing.

I'd like to take this opportunity to brag about my sister. She is the greatest. Especially when it comes to smarts, serving, humor, friends, standards, singing...She has been especially amazing in her roll as Rose in the MidvaleArts’ production of Bye Bye Birdie.
I've gone to the show twice and both times I sit there in awe as she lights up the stage with her no fear, bring on the world attitude while she brings to life Rose’s character. She took this character and made it her own. Watching my sister on stage is one of the surreal experiences where I find myself thinking, "Is that really my little sister?" Siblings can surprise you like that. You think you them so well—after all you did grow up together, play together, fought together, worked things out together—then you see them do something incredible, like dance and sing out on stage, and you realize how blessed you are to be forever connected to them. I am over and over again reminded of that blessing.
PS. Yes, her hair is really that dark and mine is really that light.

I can now add Mt. Rushmore (and South Dakota) to the places I’ve been. Check. A few people had somewhat talked it down for me and told me not to expect much. But when I got there I was not disappointed. I thought it was spectacular. And I lost my heart in the black hills and blue skies of Dakota. (two oldies, but goodies.)

I would have more pictures but I was driving and my mom wouldn’t let me take pictures while we were winding through Bighorn. Tomorrow: Yellowstone.
