Today I woke up and it would be an ordinary Sunday. But it's been one surprising day. First I came home from church early today because the snow was coming in good where I live.
This evening, about twenty or thirty minutes ago, my family learned that Gordon B. Hinkley, the prophet of my church, passed away. It's really odd when someone you know, but not
personally, dies. At least for me. I don't feel like crying, or really sad, just awed that they have left this earth for a different mission. I'll never forget him. He was a wonderful, lovely, funny old man.

Not doing so well on my resolution. I'm doing better at doing other things, but I got bored of my "morning routine". So yeah, that's me. :)We got our trampoline up this week. We got one for Christmas. It has a net around it so you won't fall out as easy. This is what it looks like. It's pretty fun. My brothers like it.

Heh, it's eight days into 2008. I've decided on a resolutions this year. While right now I'm not doing so good at my resolution to spend less time on the computer at the moment, I've been doing better on other things. I'll list them out and add my progress of eight days. Just because it looks nice when you list them. :)
- Less time on internet/computer - I do okay with this one until about 2:00pm.
- Getting up earlier - I've been waking myself at 8:00am with my alarm clock. It's only an hour difference from my original wake up hour of 9:00am, but I feel better about myself doing this. I've also decided to do an AM Yoga tape we have. The male instructor is dressed in a Speedo, which makes me glad that yoga requires you to close your eyes. ;) Then I read my scripture and take a shower.
- Working on my Church duties (callings, visiting teaching) - I'm still working on that, but I'm going to trying and play to practice the piano for Sunday. Doing temple name extraction work (this requires the computer and conflicts with goal 1). I'm also going to try to call my visiting teaching partener and the people I'm suppose to visit regularly.
- Working on driving/getting job/writing stories, etc. - I'm still working on those, too. I'll have to work on a plan for improving on these goals. (writing stories also conflicts with goal 1)
