In a groove....

Well, after a week and a half of frantically trying to get on top of tax season, I hit my groove today! I got up at 7:00 and washed 2 batches of clothes, folded 2 more batches and loaded the dishwasher, all before 9:00! Then I breezed right through 8 tax returns today and put together my ward newsletter tonight. I am printing it out right now, so I am killing time. I love when I get on top of things like this. I am Woman Hear Me Roar! I wish I could be like this all the time! I would get so much done!

Well I went and got my hair done on Thursday, instead of Wednesday! Wednesday was not a good day, and I had a hard time dealing with everything. But luckily, my hair gal, Marie Gardner was very understanding and we did it the next day! I haven't taken a picture yet, but I will try tomorrow! I like it, it is getting closer to the color I want, which is dark ash blonde with very blonde streaks in it. I also had her cut about another inch off it! But now I feel like a new woman, which is probably why I have been so productive the last couple of days! Thanks Marie!

One of the reasons Wednesday was not good? Well I have this friend Mischelle that I ran around with in high school (back in the dark ages). I introduced her to my mom's cousin, Tony and they eventually got married and had 4 children. The oldest, Russ, was born in 1976, during our Senior year. Well last weekend, he took his own life. It was almost as bad as if it had been my own child. My heart hurts for them. I held this child, took care of him, loved his little towhead! He was 33 and the father of 3 children. Words cannot explain how we have felt the past few days. We aren't supposed to outlive our children.

Well on to happier things! I have some pictures to show you.

Awesome, right? Well I didn't take them. Have you ever been to the National Geographic Magazine Web site? It is truly awesome. I subscribe to the magazine, always have (the magazine still comes to the Scott children, even though Chelsea is the last and 16!) and they send me an email each month with a link to their latest wallpapers that you can download for free! They are pictures from the magazine and from an internet column called the Daily 10, and they are breathtaking! These are only a sample; a Cheetah in the Serenghettie, butterflies in Mexico and a bee pollenating a hugh sunflower in Nebraska! Anyways, if you enjoy good photography, look them up, I have a link at the side of my page!
Okay I have rambled enough! Happy Superbowl Sunday and go Cardinals (I am a sucker for the underdog!)
