A whole month, Elf-like, and Theievery

What the what? How can it have possibly been a whole month since the last post? Wow.

I have been keeping busy converting files over to the correct form in anticipation of strike offs later this month. This is so very exciting and very scary. I can't wait for the company's launch so I can really see where this path is going.

In other news, my mom is awesome! You know when you are SUPER busy Whether it's kids, work, kids, laundry, meals, being a good friend, fulfilling your calling, or whatever and you think to yourself, "If ONLY I had two of me to take care of the laundry and upkeep of the house!" Well, that is what my mom has been giving me.

I always apologize to her because I tend to get zoned into the design/work world trying to hurry and get things finished and then she makes a small noise and I realize there is another human my home..with me (this happens when all the children are at school. Clearly, it would be impossible for such silence if they were home). But she LOVES it. She likes that I forget about her while she is being like this secret little elf making my life, so, so, SOOOOOO much easier.

The other thing is my mom is a super organizer. I did not get that gene. It's always so wonderful to walk into a space mom has worked her magic on!

Thank you, Mom. It has made all the difference this past week!

Also, Sunday night we accidentally left the garage door open all night long and someone robbed us. They took a GPS, car phone chargers, some pocket change, MY chap stick (I'm totally mad about that one), Kevin's business cards (Weird), a drill, something that goes with the drill, a handful of papers from one of the glove boxes, Keys to places other than our house, and a check book. The check book is the one that hurts. We've had to convert all our accounts and pay rolls and everything else about our life. ANNOYING!

Kevin thought he found our GPS on KSL classifies, but the guy sold it before we could check it out to see if it had the same serial number as our stolen one. Bummer!

The good news is they kept their thievery to the garage. They easily could have entered our home and I am just so very grateful they didn't!

You are most welcome and it's makes me happy I can do it.

Your mom is exceedingly awesome...and about the right height for an elf! (Ha ha - love you April!)

That is a big bummer about the garage. I'm glad it wasn't anything worse!

Once when Alex and I were on vacation, mom cleaned our entire house! It definitely was magical!

What are they going to do with your used chap stick? Maybe on of the thieves was a girl?
