This weekend was my 20th class reunion. It's hard to believe that I graduated from high school June 3, 1989! It is crazy! Last night was the dinner/dance/program at the Shilo Inn in Killeen, Tx. It started at 7pm. Dinner was really quite good considering it was prepared at the Shilo, but it better have been because it cost me $40! After dinner, the awards/games started. Lots of fun times, and lots of laughter. I wish I would have taken more pictures, but I didn't. The award for "Married Longest" went to me... 19 years 9 1/2 months, and the "Most Kids" went to me as well. When they started that award process, everyone started chanting my name. So embarrassing, but fun. Having Facebook is great that way because it's been fun catching up with people before and knowing what they were doing. Brett & Cindy went, and best "guy" bud, Rene was there with his new bride of 1 week. It was great seeing him again, and meeting Carol. I was hoping that Kenna would come, but it wasn't possible. Just listening to the 80's music was worth it, even though I listen to it a lot... but having it done there with all our classmates made it sound so much better!
On a sad note... Mariella was given to her uncle on Saturday morning. Mari has been very ill, and even hospitalized this past week. She is not doing well. Because she can't move, she is having a hard time coughing stuff out. Brett & Cindy were very upset, but they knew it was going to happen. They had hoped to adopted her. Things could change, but so far it's not looking that way.

Josh got his mission call today! He reports to the MTC on August 5th. Less then 2 months!
Funny that he got it today, because I was thinking how cool it would be if he did. You see, his Mimi, Aunt Hilary, cousins Meghan & Jannie, and his girlfriend, Amanda, are all here. I sent Kayley out to get the mail, and SHE RUNS back in, saying "I think Josh got his call!" I looked and sure enough... Elder Joshua Alan Miller. "QUICK!" I said... "go get Josh!" She runs out, and he about has a heart attack running back in the house. As he is coming in, I am trying to call Shawn at work (sorry, he has stepped out!), and my mom is trying to call my dad (not answering his phone). We are sitting in the living room, waiting. I call back Shawn, and he answers, but not my dad. We were going to wait... but Shawn had to go quick. So, we opened it, and all were excited. This is what Josh has been waiting for all his life! To serve a mission, no matter where! We have 6 weeks to get this son of mine ready to leave. I was hoping that Shawn & Josh could drive out, and I fly out to meet them there, and leave kids here, but kids really want to go. Maybe we need to rethink this. I will keep you posted with the Temple and Mission Farewell dates.

Sorry that the pictures are small. With this stupid dial-up, I am having tons of problems now. I have thought of calling AT&T again, and crying telling them that I really need wireless. I am so frustrated with dial-up because I am beginning to not have good access. I cannot get on Facebook anymore with the home computer, so when you see that I am on for a few days in a row, or only once a day, it's because I have 1) taken the computer to a local business to use their wireless or 2) I am in Killeen where my parents have wireless. I can get to my profile on Facebook, but I cannot post or add anything. This morning I was in Ashdown, so I made a brief stop and added the above pictures to my page from my sister's page, and then I accessed my profile after getting home and saved the pictures. It's so crazy. And so making me crazy!
My goal for this summer is to get this house in order. Since I cannot get on Facebook, and you can only post so much on Blogger, I have decided to start now. But not until I get off this morning... LOL!! I also went to the Bishop's Storehouse in Carrollton, Texas this past Thursday, and got a lot of food storage. I am going to be busy the next few weeks anyway getting things canned and mylar bag sealed. Shawn planted another garden this year, and just today we got our first stuff... some onions, yellow squash & zucchini.
My Relief Society Enrichment is this Saturday, and I am very nervous about it all. I have teachers who can't make it now, and I've heard a lot are going to be out of town. I have decided that next year I am doing the 4 Enrichments in February, May, September & December, hopefully all on the 1st Saturday of the month. I am so stressing out, it's not even funny. Plus it's my turn for the lesson on Sunday, which is no biggie, but I still need to get it written down. I am doing it on the "The Language of Formal Prayer" taken from a talk in the January 1976 Ensign, and another with the same title in the May 1993 Ensign. I hope it's good. I also have to get the newsletter typed up.
Lauren left today for Drum Major Camp. She was selected as 8th grade Drum Major, and is very excited about it. Her 3 day training is in Arkadelphia. She took Shawn's cell phone, so I am sure this week she is going to think she is way cool since it has texting...
Josh's mission papers were returned again because the blood-type was not entered. I mean, hello? Why did I pay a doctor to do even do this physical? Good thing President Platt is around. I also saw that the urine test was not written down, so I am sure it will be sent back for that too. Will I ever get this kid sent off? Stay tuned for the mission call! Hopefull it will be soon!
