- This whole U.S. Census thing has me worried. Allan and I will not be counted. In the 2000 Census we were in living in Canada and not counted. (Fortunately for us, in 1990 we didn't move to Canada until August, so we were still living in the U.S. and counted for that census.) I keep imagining that in 100 years when someone is researching us for their genealogy and don't find us on the 2000 or 2010 Census they will just assume WE WERE DEAD in 2000. You see I cannot find my dad or my grandfather on the 1920 Census and now I'm beginning to wonder if they were living in a foreign country??? I am glad to know my children will be counted.
- A week ago on 24 I laughed when Hastings was getting ready to compliment Chloe and she stopped him and said, "I'm not very good with praise", and I had to chuckle thinking that will never be said by me because although it usually makes me uncomfortable, deep down "I LOVE praise". I'm a little concerned because knowing that praise makes me feel good, makes me wonder if I'm a little narcissistic???
- Did anyone see the article about the New Jersey woman, who I think is living in the UK, who wants to weigh 1000 pounds. Why would anyone want to do that to their body???
- When I see commercials that talk about reducing the signs of aging they mention they can take 5 years off of your life--BIG DEAL. But the kicker is they preface their commercial by saying, "If you are in your 40's or 50's"--WHAT ABOUT THE REST OF US. Do they think it's too late for us????
Sidenote #2:Last night, Allan set apart Sister S., young lady who is going to serve in the St. Louis Mission. She was given such a beautiful blessing. She is an amazing young lady and will make a fabulous missionary.
