This is the shirt Ali wore to school the other day. Jon got it for her for Christmas... I knew the day would come, and I've decided to fight fewer battles with Ali (which is working, believe it or not) that she would want to wear it to school...I hope her teacher wasn't blinded... but I'm sure even he thought it was fitting for her!
So, I have had a little savings account for a while now. I wasn't sure what it was for, but it did contain part of the tax return from last year so I never thought of it as "my" money. I figured we'd spend it on vacation last year, but we didn't. I thought we could buy new furniture- but we didn't. Instead Jon turned to me one day and said- "you should buy a new computer with that money... you really need one!" That got the wheels turnin' I tell ya! He knew I was a Mac-snob- and he knew it wasn't going to be cheap- but he let me do it anyway, and I am in HEAVEN! I got the retina display- mostly for editing pictures. It's bigger than my last one too, but weighs less. The only issue I have now is that it has no CD drive! I didn't do as much research as I thought! I can honestly say though, there are ways around it, and I'm not sorry I got this one! Now, if I can just work out all the bugs, we'll be sittin' pretty!
Our ward got a new Primary Presidency today- it was bittersweet. I really loved the girls in the old one. They were organized, they put a lot of thought and work into everything they did and they loved the kids. They built me up, knowing that I wasn't sure I'd love my calling, and they've gotten me to a point where I don't hate it. We had a good thing going, and it's always hard to change. I've decided I need to be able to play the piano well enough that all I do on Sunday is go to church and play my heart out. That way I don't have to deal with all the other stuff. Not to say the new presidency isn't going to be great... I truly think they will be! But it's different. Sometimes different is good I guess.
Brett and I go to Hawaii!
