Holidays

It's been nice b/c for the first time since I graduated from USU, I have not had to work for 2 weeks straight.  There are no distractions, such as moving across the nation, traveling to conferences or to visit family and friends.  We have been schmucks and waking up after 10 AM everyday.  Dennis is enjoying his time with mom and dad and being able to play with his bounty from Christmas day.  The interesting thing about Dennis is seeing how his attention span is growing.  He loves to have friends over and see others do things and learn from watching their actions.  He is such a little explorer and is now mimicking our ever behavior from telling him he is in trouble, to tones used in speech or pointing at Aulie etc.

Anyway, we have taken on more water in the basement again and have been pressuring our landlord a bit to take action.  We are expecting more mixed rain and snow tomorrow, so we have gotten some pallets so I can raise our boxes up and out of the way of the water.  The sad thing is that our landlord laid vinyl down on the concrete taking all the water.  Also, we learned that about 5-6 years past a tree fell on the house and ruptured the foundation, that was not disclosed in our rental lease and according to our provisions and expectations.  We're dealing with things and we'll see where things are going.  Real Estate isn't that bad out here and there are a few things that we should consider chasing as it is a great price.

All things considered, it isn't too bad out here.  The mentality is horrible, and they aren't willing to embrace new and better things, even if they will look you in the eye and tell you they want the better, but the concept of change is so frightening to these good Christians.  Someone needs to tell them that the whole concept of Christianity is all about 'change' in and effort to become eligible to attain the promises of Christianity.

Broken thoughts above...stuck in draft, published now!!!
