Working 7 days straight . . . not highly recommended

Today I am on day 6 . . . I have been lucky in my career not to work on Sundays. Today was an exception because of the holidays - I had too. I was able to go to church before I came, so that was good. I also got to talk in sacrament meeting, which is always a blast. They made me the concluding speaker . . . so I had a nice 15 minute chunk to fill. It turned out well . . . I spoke on gaining faith in Jesus Christ - through the scriptures, modern prophets, being a missionary, and praying. During my talk my work cell phone started ringing, I told the congregation that is probably work . . . I will wait to call them back after I am done - it got some laughs.

Merry Christmas!

Mama sent me some presents for Christmas. Usually I open them before Christmas morning (don't tell her), but this year I waited. Thanks Dad and Mom!

Josh's Triple Date

A week ago, three couples got together for dinner and ginger bread house making. It was a lot of fun!

If you are not Mormon, and need an explanation, let me know.

My finger is falling off

Last night at work, I got bitten by something. It left three needle size holes on one of my fingers on my right hand. It hurt, and swelled a little. This morning the joints on that finger were weird colors - red, purpler and black. Any have this before? Do you think I will survive? I have attached some photos for you to look at. Thanks for any insight to my bug bite dilemma.

My family loves me

I got a can of cranberry sauce from Amber this week -- it made me so happy. Guess what happened today? 2 more packages on my doorstep. Ginger sent me a package filled with stuffing, jello, gravy, and hot cocoa. Mama sent me a package with 2 more cans of cranberry sauce. Thanks so much! I love ya'll! I can't wait till we can have Thanksgiving all together again someday.

Pig's Feet for Christmas

Tonight at Institute we had our Christmas Party. We did white elephant gifts - I wrapped up PICKLED PIGS FEET. Everyone had to try it - even me! It's nasty.

I have the BEST sister!

I told everyone I missed having cranberry sauce in a can for Thanksgiving . . . guess what I had in the mail today? A CAN OF CRANBERRY SAUCE! It made me so happy. Thanks Amber!
