My husband was in the military...he likes his clothes ironed...he likes them done the right way...hense, I do a lot of ironing. I also had a father who was in the military...he liked his clothes ironed...he liked them done right...hense, I did a lot of ironing growing up. When I would iron my dad's fireman shirts (He was on the fire department) and if I didn't get them just  right, I would have to do them over until I got them right. Doug is not that picky, but he does like them to look nice. I like him to look nice. I hadn't been able to keep up on the ironing lately and I decided on Saturday I would start to get caught up. Today, Tuesday, I finally finished. I think it was 34 shirts and 5 pants. In the middle of it this morning my iron died, so I ran to the store and got a new one. It was so nice. I didn't realize how bad the old one had gotten. Anyway, enough of my rambling. I just wanted to toot my horn that I got the ironing done and I am going to try to keep up with it.
Also, I am decorating for Halloween and I will soon post some pictures. It is so fun. Off to my Tuesday night meetings. TaTa.

October 2010 General Conference

Well, it is October already and General Conference for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints just got done. Wow, it was amazing. I loved all the talks and I am going to strive to change a few things in my life to become a better person and be closer to my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. As I was listening to President Monson's closing talk today I started thinking of a picture I have of him. My Grandparents went on a mission to Grand Prairie, Alberta, Canada in the 1960 to help build a church there. President Monson, then Elder Monson made a visit there and this picture was taken. My Grandpa Howard is the man in the tan shirt and pants, third from the left and Elder Monson is second from the right. How grateful I am to have been able to listen to a prophets voice today and to have had the wonderful Grandfather that I had.
