I'm feeling a bit LOST

Well, it's back. I'm still not sure where the writers are going with what used to be my favorite show, but obviously, they realize that they turned off a lot of fans in their fall disaster "mini series" of the ABC show LOST. I don't see Juliette in this photo, so it makes me wonder what will be happening to her in the near future.

Tonight's episode was odd to me how the recap went out of its way to avoid any reference to Libby, or Ana Lucia, whom I could not stand, thank goodness, and the married couple, the black woman and white husband, and the brother and sister, Shannon and what's-his-name, and Michael and his son. Eko made a brief appearance, but he had no lines. ABC emphasized that they will be airing 16 episodes without reruns, again, trying to regain the excitement for their one-upon-a-time hit show. It seems like they were trying to get that loving feeling back from the first season. How many times are we going to see the recap of how their story began? I think we've got it now.

What else am I LOST about? I've been juggling about a million little things, from helping out a couple of people this week, to my PC business, to my church volunteer service, to school volunteer work, to Cub Scout service, to carpooling, to taking my son to minor doctor appointments, to maintaining the family with groceries, meals, and so forth.

As far as the blog updates, I am trying to figure out if I'm going to bother with using my new camera, which I cannot seem to find a good, quick turnaround time from the time I snap a photo, to the time I can beg my husband to upload it onto my computer. I have the old camera figured out, but the new one is different. I am so close-minded with any changes in technology! Thank goodness my husband is an expert with electronics, but I rely on him too much. Gosh, my kids could probably figure it out better than I could.

The point is that I wish I would be adding more than one post a week, but it's just not happening. In my life, as I am trying to gracefully glide over the lake as a beautiful, elegant swan, my feet are paddling like mad beneath the surface, to keep going.

To add to my frustration, my right shoulder has been hurting again, which has been rather irritating. And last, but not least, I baked a Chocolate Chip Pecan Pie tonight, and consumed a big, fat slice. That ought to really show up on the scale tomorrow! It certainly tasted good though. I actually made four pies in all, to deliver as birthday gifts to friends. While I was sabotaging my good eating habits, at least I was serving others. That was my justification, apparently.

Sounds like you are kinf of stressed- I think you deserved that slice of pie!

Lost is such a wierd show. I have to watch it yet I have nothing to really say about it because honestly I have no idea whats going on.

I didn't watch the recap thing last night but the new episode was same as always- introducing new information and new characters and without the tiniest bit of what any of it means. I guess we know that Juliette (and all the "others") came on the island to work in experimental medicine... although why is she the only doctor if that is why all the others are there?
I LOVE LOST STILL! But I know, I'm a little lost too. I hate how they just get me all worked up and anxious just to tease me and leave me hanging again. Oh well :)

Kelly - I can completely relate to how you feel! Paddling like crazy beneath the surface is me...every day! It's very challenging to juggle everything but you do a wonderful job and are an amazing woman! :)

Sounds like you are burning way more calories than a silly piece of pie. Every so often you have to give in to sweets, or else you will give up all together. You always amaze me Kelly with all that you can accomplish!

Amazing commentary on Lost, and dead on too. You nailed it. Tom wants to give up on the show and I am still intrigued, even though I make fun of almost every line uttered on the show. I need to get hooked on another show. I have been trying out American Idol and have had second thoughts about it. I feel kind of guilty laughing at all of the talentless goofballs on the show. Tom refuses to watch it, so that's no fun. Maybe I will start watching the Office with Madison, Morgan and Nathaniel.
You do need to start floating or you will sink, and not because of the slice of pie you ate.
Thanks for entertaining me today.

Fun with Ninnies and Nini

Our family got to attend the monthly stake temple day at the Taipei temple on Saturday.   Lindsey and Christopher did their temple work, then waited outside on the beautiful grounds and at the chapel next door until we were finished with our session. After that, we enjoyed hamburgers at a place we heard about called California Grill, then did some exploring.
Lindsey arrived last week from Rexburg, completing 32 credit hours and her first year of college at Brigham Young University-Idaho. We are so glad to have her home with us!  She will be with us until she starts school again in September and will be taking two classes online in the meantime.  In addition to Lindsey's arrival, we've been blessed to have the company of 7-year-old Nini (her real name is Yeh Min-Yu) with us this week.  She's so darling and we love having her around too.  It's kind of funny that when Lindsey was a little toddler and she could not say her name well, she called herself Ninnies.  So we h…

Book of Mormon Stories Pool Party!

Hopefully this title, Book of Mormon Stories Pool Party, does not sound irreverent, because as an Activity Days leader, I felt compelled to come up with a fun end-of-the-summer event that is also uplifting, and after all, who doesn't love a splash in the pool on a hot day in August?  My current church calling, or official role that I volunteer for, allows me to plan two activities each month for girls ages 8 to 11, that will encourage them to learn and live the gospel, serve others, and use the talents Heavenly Father has given them, to learn to do many good things.  This year's seminary course of study for high school students is The Book of Mormon, and since I am a huge fan of this inspired book of scripture, I came up with this idea to have each girl show up to my house with a written summary of one of her favorite stories from within its many pages, and share it with the rest of the girls, while outside in our swimsuits near our backyard swimming pool!  As each girl shares…

Class of 2030 first day of school

First day of kindergarten was a huge hit!
The only thing that went wrong, other than arriving to school a few hours late due to our flight from Denver and no sleep the night before from seeing the 2017 American solar eclipse in Casper, Wyoming, was losing two small, black buttons from his brand new blue and gray plaid Hurley shirt.
My little boy started kindergarten and I'm so excited for the freedom it will give me while he's away at school, but especially I'm glad for the fun times he will have in learning and being with new friends.  He was so ready and excited!  I didn't know any of the kindergarten teachers at the school, but after meeting Mrs. C, I'm so glad we got her!  Her body language and introduction to Isaac were so sweet and made him feel safe, loved and welcome.
I ordered this fun and festive balloon from ATXBubbles and they delivered it to our front door.  Isaac loved his after school surprise.
He picked out this backpack because the inside says &quo…
