It has been so loooooong!!

It has been about a month and half since I last posted about computer problems. I guess when it rains it does it in buckets! Life has been a bucket of rain lately. Nothing bad just a big crazy bucket of rain. So, we had computer problems and then.........we had internet problems. Then we went out of town for two weeks only to come back to a new calling in church. Ward camp director. I still teach relief society but now have this and I was so excited! I had just a few weeks to get ready because camp was coming up. Lucky for me the previous camp director was on top of things and I did not have to much to worry about. I say to much because there was still so much do. Crazy!, but not as crazy as the week before I left for camp. I was trying to get my house ready and the kids because my mother-in-law was coming to watch them. Dave could not take work off because he was leaving the week after for Young Men's camp. My dear mother-in-law came for three days and I wanted it to be as painless as possible! So......I'm getting ready, getting ready and our air-conditioner goes out. So bad in almost 100 degree heat. While they are fixing that a huge, and I mean huge (almost 4 gallons of water came out of our ceiling) leak starts in our ceiling. It ended up being a totally different problem from the air problem. All of this and I leave the next day for camp. AHHHHHH!!!! My mother-in-law braves what she knows is going on here and still comes. I leave, have a great time at camp (no bears, there has been a problem in that area) come home to a fixed air-conditioner, and fixed leak. Thank you Lois (my mother-in-law)!!!!!!! So, I am home and catching up with life and hopefully this week will be as uneventful as possible!

What a crazy time! I can't believe you only had a week to get ready! I think camp is so hard on young moms, way to go! And now I hope that your house stays intact!

You are my hero...mostly because one of the callings that I might have to think about before giving a resounding yes would be camp director...I bet the girls love you and you made it awesome!!! Glad you are back in the blogging world!
