Index cards

I have index cards because they're great for writing things on. When I'm holding an index card and a great pen, I can't help but write something down. They pull thoughts out of my head and immortalize them. That's good!

But I don't like to throw away index cards. Every index card has a thought or list or plan on it, and that came from my head! If I throw it away, I might as well have never written it down in the first place. I just can't get myself to throw them away. Maybe I should sell my computer for more index cards and index card organizing containers. I'll keep my journal on index cards. I'll do my homework on index cards. I'll put a stamp on one if I need to write to someone. My great grandchildren will find large plastic boxes full of indexed index cards. They'll never be able to read them all. My secrets are safe!

Things that made me ecstatic

1. Having Council Bluffs come back to Provo, and choosing an "unprecedented" theme for everything we do. I remember the "self-evident" theme, Gavin's "Max Power" theme, and we even had a blogging theme for a while. They all affected everything we did. "Unprecedented" will be a good one while it lasts.

2. Driving from Arizona to Provo with Kyle and Becca, and passing three speed traps that were being watched by mannequins in police cars. One of them was Miss Jenny's sister, probably Miss Sally or something. Evidence:

now THAT'S unprecedented.

Things that made me happy

1. Being at home and kickin' it with awesome people.

2. My sisters are all moms, and I'm learning stuff about being a parent, and how precious those little kids are. What makes me happy is knowing that God loved all of us enough to send his only begotten Son down to Earth, to be mocked and crucified, so that we could all return to His presence, for a big ol' family reunion not unlike this Christmas break.

3. My mom, who is the nicest mom in the entire world. Anyone who knows her knows that if you but glance at a $3000 ming vase in a display case, she'll get it for you because she thinks you'll like it. If you're happy, it makes her happy. And that makes me happy.

4. Playing sit-down tag with my niece Hannah. I didn't think it was possible. And it was her idea.

5. An acoustic cover of Outkast's Hey Ya.

6. My dad gave me a blessing. Sweet beans 'n' molasses!

7. I got an accordion for Christmas.

9. My brother talked about things he wishes he could teach our nieces. We have 6 of them, and they play and fight and laugh together, and it's fun. But he, like me, was frustrated at wanting really badly to teach them some really basic and important things, things that grown-ups take a long time to learn.

1. Things aren't important.
2. Being better than other people in any way isn't important.
3. Being nice to people IS important.

I think he meant to say more things, but just those three speak volumes.

10. We also have 2 baby nephews. For some reason, doing something silly and making a baby smile makes me feel like a million dollars.

11. There. That's ten.
