odds and ends

I don't like reading blogs with a lot of text.  If you don't either, stop reading now and I won't feel bad.  There are a few people that will read what I write no matter what.  This is for them.
  • I still haven't found my camera and I'm really sad about it.  And confused, frankly.  I only keep it in maybe 3 places and it isn't in any of those places it should be.  Or the places it shouldn't be.  I've looked.  Hence more writing, less pictures.  And by less I mean none.

  • I've been sick for a few weeks, but only I-feel-crummy-and-tired-and-don't-feel-like-doing-anything-but-I-can-still-go-to-work-and-get-the-job-done-sick.  It's not a fun kind of sick to be because people don't always take you seriously if you aren't throwing up.  And it's the kind of sick you feel bad complaining about because you know there are all those people with cancer, pregnancy, or some other serious physical condition that probably feel way worse than you do and they endure it like champs.  I promise I really have a bug, but it'll pass and I may be on the upswing even now.  I'm in my 3rd day of feeling normal-ish (!!!).  That will make my roommate happy.  She claims she gets unusually crafty when I'm not up and around and its wearing her out.  But the house looks lovely with all the new wall hangings.  Someone else will also be very happy when I am well so we can get back to more interesting activities than watching me grumpily lie on a couch after work.

  • Halloween was fun.  Or rather, the weekend before Halloween.  We dressed up as Jessie and Woody from Toy Story for a regional YSA dance and dang, we looked good.  Actual Halloween?  I spent the evening lying on a couch with a migraine while he did homework.  Party animals.

  • My little brother Scott received his assignment to serve as a missionary for our Church for 2 years.  He is heading to the New Hampshire Manchester mission.  He reports to the Missionary Training Center in Provo, Utah, on December 7.  Yay for missionaries!

  • My high school alma mater had a stellar cross country season this fall.  The boys' team placed 1st at the 5A Idaho State Cross Country Championships for the first time ever!  Then the girls' team placed 2nd, edged out of 1st place by a mere 4 points, which is a heartbreakingly-slim margin, believe me.  Word is the girls team has no seniors and only one junior, so it looks like the team will stay strong for the next few years and likely win it all next year.  The last time girls won 1st at state was my senior season (and very last xc race, awesomely) in 2004.  Go Vikings!
