What is going to keep me going............

So, I've decided that maybe my life isn't really pointless. It DOES feel that way. But I'm going to do my BEST to not think like that. Have any of you seen the video of President Uchdorf titled "Create"? If not, go here.

Love it.

I've kinda decided that I can do anything:). I can create music, art, literature (blog at least), furniture, tax liability, tax refund (HA- sorry. I am a dork and thought that would be a funny one), love, whatever. So....I guess I will choose to live my life trying to create. Along with loving my husband, family, and friends of course.

I have so many things I want to create right now. I'll just list some o' them:

  • cute tote bags
  • saweet coasters
  • handy cloth napkins
  • cutesy table runner
  • classy pillows
  • sassy guitar strap
Like my ability to use adjectives?

Also, one thing I have been meaning to learn is..."Party in the USA" on the guitar. What inspired me? Why...Andy Bernard of course! Did you guys watch that episode where they sang a song about dunder miflin and sabre to the tune of Party in the USA? Well...it inspired me:)

Today a client yelled at me. When I didn't do anything wrong. She came behind my desk, stood by my chair, and told me off. And you wanna know what made it ONE HUNDRED times worse? But at the same time ONE HUNDRED times easier to giggle at? I'll tell you. She smelled like poop. I'm not joking...or speaking metaphorically. She literally....smelled.like.poop. Ahhh...the life of an accountant:) Ha, just joking. That's the first time that's ever happened.

K. Time for lost- PEACE!

OHhhhhhh I wish I could watch Lost, but that would entale going to my inlaws. I'm sorry you've been so depressed, adn I hope you weren't calling me today to vent, when I did all the talking. I laughed so much at your USA song- the Andy Benard inspiration- I love that song though! I wish I lived by you so we could make all these things together! The poop- soooooo funny, I read it to Mike- love it.

I can't believe she smelled like POOP???? ukky I can't stand the smell of poop. Funny story I am happy you are thinking more postive. I loved that talk by Pres U it is really good. I think you can create anything you really want to you are sooo creative. Good luck with the tax clients, could you fire her as a client? I know that is what people do sometimes. I love you Hugs and Kisses grams

ok. we need to get crafty during the week and not just on the weekend. we should take the two hours we use to watch the bachelor and spend it doing some of our projects. we could just do a small project or part of a big project. what do ya think? cause i've been coming up with projects left and right also and we need to get them done....

oh. and maybe the lady pooped her pants and she was angry and took it out on you. i pet that's what happened. you should have asked her.

Wonderful blog. I'm so excited to see you guys tonight. I have seen that video and love it as well. When we create we are doing what God does. When we take matter disorganized and organize it we are becoming like God--our ultimate goal. I love you. Miss you. Wish you weren't with poopy clients all day, and were with me creating!

I loved that video! It is amazing what the church is doing now. I loved your blog! I am grateful for all the talents I have been given also, what a blessing that is. I love the idea of creating, that is why I love to sew, paint and garden. Loved the poopy client! I'm so sorry that you got yelled at, but grateful the Lord gave you a way out! I am loving lost!!! I need to talk to you about it, Amy and Mike and I had a great hash and rehahsh about it. loved talking to you on the phone! Miss you and love you!!!

That is one of my all time very favorite talks- up there with a couple on the Atonement and the one on the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon, all from Elder Holland. So great! Hooray for creating. And hooray that you have The Hunger Games in the sidebar. :) Have a lovely day.
