Something New...

I'm actually going to be able to attend church tomorrow for the first time since the mass exodus incident. I'm actually pretty excited. Along with going to church for the first time in a long time I've been given a new calling. Since several people who are in my ward also read my blog I'll keep mum until after tomorrow, but I'm a little nervous. :S
We had one of our annual family reunions today. It was SO hot! I walked with my mom to the restrooms and when I got back my eyes were acting like I'd had the sun reflected into my eyes. It was SO weird. Usually though, when you get sun-reflection in your eyes it goes away within a few minutes....this didn't go away. I told my mom, and she said it was probably a migraine. Wha?? I mean, I had a weird migraine ONCE when I was in middle school, but I didn't think I got them. But sure enough, the weird vision thing eventually covered my whole right field of vision. I couldn't see anyone sitting on my right-hand side. So my mom jumped to get me some aspirin and a caffeinated soda. (I haven't had one of them FOREVER....) I have to admit though, I did thoroughly enjoy my Dr. Pepper knock-off. I LOVE that stuff!
Soon after downing the soda (within 5 minutes) I could see again, although I still had a head ache.
It feels like the head ache is on it's way back....blech! But I know what I can do! :) Only one boy does NOT enjoy it when mama drinks gives him a belly ache. Poor baby! :(
Jacob buried himself into my mom's armpit. I guess he didn't like the sun in his face. We found it highly amusing! :P
The family reunion was fun. Steve and I ended up with QUITE the stash. I got several pretty crochetted towels and hot pads, and Steve got a cool walking stick and some yummy syrup. And shocker....we spent more at the reunion than my parents! I may just faint! :P All in all, it was a long, hot, fun day.

I'm glad you had such a fun day. That's too bad about your headache, though. I hope it goes away soon. And good luck with your new calling. :)

I'm glad your reunion went well, except for the heat. When are you guys leaving for AZ?
