Island Park

Friday, October 12, 2007

All of us are here sitting on the couch watching 'What Not to Wear.' Omai's making fun of the lady's laugh, Paige is trying to get her internet to work, Chelsea's giving Colley a bath, and dad just finished attempting to wash the windows. Turns out the windows can't get any cleaner. No one here really slept last night except probably my dad--he takes drugs so he didn't hear Colley's crying or Omai's snoring. I think Paige and Chelsea got the brunt of it because I'm somewhat accustomed to Omai's nightly noises. Colley will be sleeping in the bathroom tonight, Omai will be sleeping in the car, and Paige will be consuming some of dad's drugs. I think everyone will be very happy and well rested in the morning. Our plan is to go golfing today, but the temperature has to reach 40 degrees and the green has to be thawed. We are now making an attempt at breakfast and by 'we' I mean dad. I think he's the only one that has energy after last night's adventures. He's now threatening to turn the TV to something boring to get us off the couch. Good luck. We can take boredom any day.

We went to dinner on Friday with Angela and Lucas Sosa to Jason's Deli. We had a wonderful time becoming reaquainted with them and learning more about Lucas. He's from Argentina and they met in their single's ward. Angela's pregnant and will have her baby in May. How exciting! It seems like a lot of people are getting that itch for a baby or another baby. We are slightly in that category, but I think we'll wait for a bit. I'm actually excited to be a mommy, which is a huge contrast from a month ago when having a baby was the farthest thing from my mind. And now I can say "I'm righteous" according to Sister Beck. In conference she spoke about how every righteous woman wants to be a mother. I guess last month I wasn't righteous, but I've now changed my ways.

Too Late

Here I am at 12:35 AM and I can't sleep. Well, that's due to my three hour nap I took after work. No more naps for me I've decided. Omai had basketball practice tonight with the Brighton girls. It was a long one--about three hours. I'm very impressed with his coaching ability. He watched their games from Saturday and studied up on what he needed to coach them. He had them watch a couple plays from NCAA tourneys so they knew what they needed to do. He's so great and they are lucky to have them. We're still deciding if he's going to coach this season. I go both ways with it. I know he really loves it and the team and other coaches really need him. But then I think about how much time it will take and how it detracts from furthering his career in anything else he would want to do. But this is what makes him happy so I guess there's the answer. I will need to take up a hobby to fill my time when he's not around. There's only so clean a house can get. We are looking forward to a weekend up at Island Park, Idaho with my family. We are thinking of golfing while we're up there. That will be fun. Omai has been talking about Island Park since... ummm... last year. He's totally stoked. It'll be a good time.

Tonight I had the fantastic opportunity of coaching our Young Women's Volleyball game and, oh what a time it was. I hope I give my children at least a couple ounces of athletic ability. If not, they're taking up the harmonica.
