Fumbling around in Feb

It's been a while since my last real posting.  Why you ask?  Well I am not really sure.  I have been asking myself the same darn question.  Self, why don't you have anything to say?  What have you been up to?  Anything interesting going on in that busy life of yours?  Nada, nunca, nonezo, nadamucho.  I truly could not think of anything to write on here.  I promise you that I don't sit at home all day and do nothing.  So I have been brainstorming.  I could give you the play by play of my daily wonderings, but who honestly wants to know that I wake up, eat oatmeal, debate whether or not to brush my overgrown knotted up hair...and the list goes on.  Here is what  I can tell you though.
-Biz and I are going to knock off #1 on my bucket list.  That's right.  We are going to Jackson Hole.  This summer.  I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am about this.  This is the place that I have been dying to go to. So we decided to start saving our pesos and to make it happen. Feel free to donate to the cause...just joking....kinda.  Did I mention that I will get to fly fish in the Snake River, ride four wheelers in the Grand Tetons and have a NCMO with a cowboy.  Okay, maybe not the last part.  But, I'm not saying I won't be thinking about it. (that's for you Allison McCarthy) These are actually all on this said bucket list so yay for us:)
-My work computer crashed on Sunday.  I thought life was over. (Ok, that was a lil dramatic)  I said several choice words and had to walk away. To my surprise, it was back late yesterday afternoon with a new outlook on life.  It knows what's good for it. 
-Yesterday I had one of the best sandwhiches in the whole universe.  Plus I was in super great company.  You know, just another sandwhich day with Biz the sandwich extraordinare...and Rosemary.  One of the original wizards (not meant in any sacreligious ways. Just a term of endearment).  We had some good talks.  A little too deep to put up on the ol blog. 
-I have been freaking out about the future. As in the economy and what not.  Well guess what?  I can't control it. So it's time to stop being a nervous nelly and move on. (Sorry this one was for me. I have to give myself lil pep talks now and again:)
-I can honestly say that I have been learning so much lately.  About what you ask?  Well I hate to be selfish, but I have mostly been learning about myself. A couple weeks ago, we had a meeting a church and it was so awesome. Seriously AWESOME. I can't even begin to tell you how cool it was.  I am normally pretty shy about this kind of stuff, but I will throw some stuff on the table here.  I learned about walking/operating in the Spirit which is pretty darn cool if you ask me.  Now all I need to do is actually attempt to live life this way.  Here is the kicker of what I learned.  We all have junk that we carry around.  If you are reading this and you think you don't have any junk, let me be the first to enlighten you.  YOU HAVE JUNK TOO.  Sorry. It's inevitable.  But, don't worry you do not have a case of chronic uniqueness.  Everybody else has it too, they are just concealing it well.  Here is something else that I picked up: If we get hurt, then we operate in self protection mode.  When operating in self protection, then we are apt to make inner vows (this is when you say "I will never do that" or "I will never do or say that to someone" etc..).  Inner vows can lead to bitterness/judgement.  (Which we may or may not be aware of)  Bitterness/Judgement leads to a hard heart.  Wow.  Pretty solid stuff right there.  So maybe this resonates with one of you.  I know that I am taking that one home. 
-For those of you who dislike my magic number posts-sorry, but they are going to keep coming. I will enlighten you sometime in the future.  But you will get it sooner rather than later. I hope.

Alright.  That's enough for today. I hope your week is going splendid:)
Love you long time,
