5 on Friday

The day is not over so it's not too late to get my 5 on Friday list, right?  It makes me happy to know so many love these posts!  

Here are the top 5 things that happened this week...

1.  The hubs and I went out tonight.  We saw "Arthur" and then went out for Indian food again.  I didn't moan quite as much through dinner this time!  After the movie I started crying.  I'm NOT a crier!  So it's a big deal if I do cry.  I have just felt so overwhelmed with some things happening in my life.  You are probably thinking to yourself why this is on the top 5 list!  Well, when we came home I walked into the family room and saw a GORGEOUS bouquet of flowers.  I was confused at first because I had been with the hubs all night long.  I opened the card and started bawling!  I could hardly read the card the tears were so thick.  They were from my BFF, Audrey!  She knew that I was having a hard week and brought me flowers.  I can't even express how much this meant to me.  She is my angel here on Earth.  I'm not even kidding.  

2.  I received my favorite things package this week.  Every time I use something Leah gave me I think of her.  Thanks again Leah!  I seriously LOVE everything.  She was so generous!  

3.  I got to see my Mom, Dad and sister all in one week!  I know I've said it before but it's so hard not to have family here in Utah.  I feel lonely so often because it just seems like everyone here in Utah has family around.  So it was really fun to see all of them this week.  I also got to see my cute nephew.  He loves his Aunt Tami!

4.  My daughter and I decided that this whole homeschooling thing is great but that she needs to be back at a regular school.  So today we went and registered her for Jr. High!  What the?  Jr. High?  Am I really that old?  Yes, sure enough I am.  But since everyone still thinks I'm only about 26 I don't mind!  I love the looks on their faces when I tell them that I'm closer to 40 than I am 30!  I'm excited for her.  She will have so much fun!  

5.  I went to a Youth Conference kick off!  I'm the YW president in our ward and I'm so excited for Youth Conference in July.  We are going to a ranch about 2 hours away.  There will be horseback riding, hiking, swimming, canoeing, and tons of other fun things to do there.  I even get to teach one of the classes!  

OK...here are the bottom (crappy) 5 for the week.

1.  Seriously Mother Nature!  Have I done something to make you mad?  I'll do anything to make it up to you!  Just stop this snow and I'll do it!  I'm ready for the warm, sunny days!  I want to play!

2.  It's just been a downer week for me.  I think we all feel like this from time to time.  I posted pictures on my private blog because sometimes a picture says it all.  Here are just a few of them...

 Have you ever been happy for someone yet sad for yourself at the same time?
 House work and laundry...please make it stop!  I'm overwhelmed.

 But I really WANT to cry!
I procrastinated big time on something and just felt like a big piece of poop because of it.  

3.  The company the hubs works for just got bought by a different company.  I really hate it when this happens.  We've had to switch insurance companies and pay days.  Well if that doesn't throw a wrench in your plans!  I need to get a prescription filled tomorrow but we don't have any info.  GREAT!  I've also been going to physical therapy all week on a "self paying" status.  We were also told that his vacation would be paid out but it didn't!  Oh man, this is NOT good.
4.  I honestly wish swearing in public was illegal.  I took the kids out for lunch today and two guys sat down right next to our table.  They swore through the whole meal.  This morning I went to pump gas and after I went inside to grab a drink.  There was an old man on his phone totally dropping the "f" bomb!  I hate it.  Where are these people's manners?  I have to admit that it was especially weird to hear an OLD man swearing like that.  Yea, gramps, you're cool!  NOT.

5.  I finished my book.  That's not the bad part!  I LOVED the book (The Forgotten Garden).  But now I'm stumped!  What do I read now?  I have so many to choose from.  I HATE making decisions.  So, any suggestions?  I really hate choosing.  

I hope you all had more ups than downs this week!

Also, the power point that Steve sent us all, I believe the policy numbers and contact info for the insurance are all in there! They went over them at Orientation... That should help, because it does count now!
