What a day!

Yesterday was an interesting Sunday. Not bad, just interesting.

It started out with an FHE meeting, where everything that came out of my mouth was shot down by the co-chair. I wasn't sure if I was just being sensitive or not, but then 3 other people that were in that meeting came up to me and asked me how I was doing since I was verbally attacked. She may not have meant to come across that way.... but that is how me and the majority of the people in the room felt. We all left a little frightened to have a difference of opinion.

Next I went to help out my mom with my sister's kids while my sister and my brother in law are in Europe (I'm totally jealous). I first had to talk my niece Reanne into not being so upset and to get a dress on and convince her to go to church. Once we got to church, it went pretty smooth.

I got invited to dinner. This is not rare or weird in itself. I accepted the dinner invitation. You probably are wondering *I thought she was on the HCG diet and could hardly eat anything*. This is still true. So why did I accept the dinner invitation? It was an HCG meal from an HCG recipe cookbook. There were two other people there also on the diet. I never thought I would be invited to an HCG dinner, seriously, never crossed my mind. That is why it was weird. Kind of awesome at the same time, but weird.

I went to ward prayer. Also not an unusual event, but we were required to bring one of our shoes for a guy in the ward to take. Our shoe would be picked by a guy in the ward and they will do some sort of service for us this week. This is a nice gesture, but does this require us to give up a shoe? I feel like there could be another way to accomplish this.

I went to a birthday party for a girl I never thought I would like or be friends with. But the other week, we talked and decided we were friends, so I was invited to her birthday party... so I went. Just did not expect it.

Oh, and how could I forget the Sunday drive with Jessica & Tina. Just a little drive around town to make sure things were okay with Jessica's car. As we are driving along, we see this....

That pretty much sums up the interesting day I was having. We sure got a good laugh though. I don't think the guy appreciated us taking a picture, or the fact that we kind of followed him, but we had a good time. That counts for something right?

Last, I had a great chat with my good friends Karen C & Karen M who were sitting outside on the doorstep. So nice that it is finally getting warm enough to do that. We had a great chat (which I always do with them) and had some good laughs and then Nate and Isaac joined in the conversation. The night ended with this conversation....

Me- "I don't want to go to work tomorrow."

Isaac- "Yeah, I haven't seen you there in a while."

Me- "It's because I'm on a diet."

Isaac- "Oh, so you don't eat anymore?"

Me- "Pretty much."

To us, this conversation made perfect sense. Everyone else just started laughing and didn't know what the heck we were talking about. It took me a while to catch on why we didn't make sense. In case you are wondering, Isaac and I don't work together. However, he works in a building next to me and we occasionally see each other in the East Bay Cafe on the Novell campus.

And that was the end of my interesting day.

Doorstep chats on warm summer nights was one of my favorite things about Provo life...it's just not quite the same when you're married and all your neighbors just stay inside :)

I think I need an HCG diet dinner group every night. Or a personal chef. I think that is what it would take to succeed.
Sweet picture. Poor guy.
