Hmmm . . .

Same old things going on in my life. Trying to get used to my new place. Taking care of a challenging but adorable baby man. He's getting so smart. He peed in my bed the other day, yuck!Even yuckier, he got a little poo poo on my blanket, too. But he's still adorable. I went to a scrapbooking thing and I had so much fun. I forgot how much I love scrapbooking, I haven't done it in so long because I didn't want to take all of my stuff out of the box. I really don't have room for it right now. We went to a BBQ and that was pretty cool. We are getting to know some more people and I really want to be more comfortable here. You know, the other day, I started getting serious anxiety over going to the grocery store. Being thrown into this new environment hasn't been easy, but I sure hope it doesn't effect my health. I have to give a talk in church in a couple of weeks. That's something else to get nervous about. No big, after it's over, more people in the ward will know who I am, and I consider that a plus. Maybe with the holidays coming soon, things will start to get more interesting. I hate the movie "The Little Mermaid" just so you know. Went to visit my parents this weekend. That's fun.

My New Ward

I hate my new ward. Its all crap. Okay, it hasn't been completely horrible, but I'm so bored and I haven't really gotten to know anybody yet. I don't even know who the Relief Society president is. I went to a few Relief Society activities, and they were okay. I went to the book club, which I was so looking forward to. It was the first meeting and I'm the only person there who isn't a grandmother. They ladies are pretty cool but our first book is The Bishops Bride, and so far I'm in chapter four and I think its the lamest book in history. So I'm kinda disappointed about that. I'm not an out-going person so making friends is always a challenge. In this new place, where I don't know anybody and I can get lost in these busy streets just trying to go to the store, I've been feeling lonely. Ephraim has been learning a lot and has also been getting into a lot of trouble. He's learning to do Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes. He's become addicted to watching movies, he'll even pull out the DVD he wants and hands it to you to put it on. I'm going to have to do something about that. But being stuck in this apartment doesn't leave him with a lot of options. I've taken him to the park, but it's been so warm this week I didn't want to go out much. What's a bored mom to do?
