How can it be February already?

I've been a terrible blogger. Lately, I've felt like the days are passing super quickly and I don't have time for anything "extra". Sorry, blog reader. Maybe if my readership increased enough, I could quit my job and become a full-time blogger. Ha! Now if only I could think of something interesting to say, right?

So what have we been busy with? Hmmm.

1. I had a birthday. I spent the day in the airport (more on that later). Otherwise, it was a nice day. We actually celebrated the "big day" when I got back to Houston (more on that later, too).

2. I spent a week in beautiful, frigidly cold Michigan. Michigan wouldn't have been my first choice for a sales meeting in January, but that is why I am just an engineer. In all, it was actually a very enjoyable week; I met a lot of people who I work with now and many who I will be working with in the future. I definitely made a good choice to make the jump to ClydeUnion. It's a very exciting place to work!

3. Speaking of work, I've been doing a lot of it. There was no "honeymoon" period... once I started, they threw me in the deep end (I'm not compaining, it's actually very exciting.).

4. We're busy with the Young Men & Young Women's program at church. I've taken on Personal Progress, and am working to complete the program right along with the girls. It's been fun and challenging as I try to inspire them to work on their projects. On Wednesday nights we have activities and this weekend we start stake basketball.

5. We've attended the temple several times in the past few weeks, including a youth baptism trip and a session with the Johnson family as Tyler prepares to serve as a missionary in Arizona. We are so glad to have a temple so close to us here in Houston. It really is a blessing for our family.

6. When I got back from Michigan, we celebrated my birthday with a delicious dinner at Texas Land & Cattle restaurant. Yum!

7. We won free tickets to see the Harlem Globetrotters at the Toyota Center on Friday. Dan was looking forward to seeing them, after watching them so much as a kid. I think the reality was a little disappointing. We left at half-time.

8. Last Saturday I attended Stake Women's Conference, which was excellent. The guest speakers/singers were from the group Heartsong.

9. Dan has not been feeling well. He stayed home from work yesterday in an attempt to get more rest and start feeling better.

10. We hosted a small Superbowl party on Sunday night. Go Saints!

All that and no photos! I promise it won't be very long before I post again. Enjoy your Tuesday!
