The boys went to New York to watch a couple of the Yankees games. Joe took them for their birthdays. It was nice and quiet here for a couple days. What did I do? I cleaned the carpets--woohoo! They did not like the filthy dirty subways. They were not impressed with New York in any way shape or form as far as they told me. I wasn't either and I wasn't there very long when I went. I didn't think I would sleep very well with Joe gone because usually I don't but surprisingly enough I slept pretty well. Setting the alarm every night probably helped.

I can't believe Tim will be home in 82 days. I hope his head wound doesn't get infected. Why does he always hit his head?

I can't believe it has been so long since I have blogged. WOW What a busy summer. One more trip to go so far. We have our annual trip to the cabin this weekend. I hope all my kids except Tim of course will be there. I also can't believe that Tim only has a few weeks left wow how tiime flies. Somethimes I feel I don't have control any more but did I ever? I babysat my grandkids this weekend it was fun. I did have lots of help with the 3 girls here to do things for them. Life is short and full of lots of events.

Can you believe this

THOMAS: ... Obama is 'we are above that now.' We're not just parochial, we're not just chauvinistic, we're not just provincial. We stand for something - I mean in a way Obama's standing above the country, above - above the world, he's sort of God. He's-
THOMAS: He's going to bring all different sides together.

Good grief! Isn't that something. Comparing Obama to God! How ludicrous is that? What kind of God fearing people have we become? I could not believe this and to think that people still worship this anti-Christ! Yes, I believe he is an anti-Christ, maybe not the anti-Christ but one. To think that someone would rather meet him than President Monsen is just beyond my comprehension. I can't even talk anymore. I am flabberghasted.

tims letter

I got this letter from Tim this morning. He is doing so well. He is on his 4th Island and said he will probably stay there til the end. Mindelo is on that Island and I have heard of that city. I love what missions to for our children and for others children.

I received a letter from a member that lives is Fogo and is now a mini missionary. Let me translate what he wrote to me word for word.

His name is Jony and he said "Elder Wyson, how is the mission going over there? Here everyone asks about you. They say "where is that funny elder?". It is with much pride that I am writing you to thank you for the help you gave me when you were here with Elder Cruzinho and Elder Nascimento. Principaly you gave me lots of strength and encouragment to prepare my mission papers, your advice strengthened my testimony. I remember when you told me that I was only being tested because my mission papers were taking a long time to finish. You are a really cool, relaxed and way loving with people. Now, I want to give you some advice. Don't worry about what people say about you. You are valiant for the cause of Christ. Your are a server chosen to teach his words. Then he left the scripture 3 Nephi 5:13."

And that is what he said. You guys can take it for how you want but I have my own way of taking it and that man has a special place in my heart. I don't always see my success as I have said before. No maybe I am not AP or ZL, but you know what they don't get to teach as much as I do. So maybe that is why I haven't be called to those positions because my mouth, my teachings ,and my attitude with people helps bring people to the gospel and to Jesus Christ better than the next. I really don't care about those positions. I know is that I love the Savior more than anyone in the world because through him I can love someone. This church is true. I love being a missionary. I am not saying I don't get trunky and think about home sometimes, but it passes and I keep working. That is life as a missionary I love this work and the other stuff can wait until later. I love you all

Tim got a letter this day. This is a picture a Lady missionary put on her blog about mail day.

I love this one

Bringing America Together. The election is over. It is time to repair friendships with the other party. Governor Sarah Palin is doing her part to do just that.The rest of the world cannot understand how, after bitter election campaigns, American politicians can kiss and make-up.For instance, Gov. Palin has invited, to her great state of Alaska, the men who defeated her, Barack Obama and Joe Biden. She has set up a moose hunting trip for their enjoyment and hired three prominent experts in their field to assist them.Dick Cheney will lead them on the hunt, Ted Kennedy will drive them back to their cabins each evening, and Bill Clinton will entertain their wives and daughters.What a lady! That Sarah is such a sport and thinks and thinks of everything!

I haven't written for a while.  I can't wait until Obama is out.  How could someone still want to support him.  He is making a mess of this country.  He has not done one good thing.  Good grief he can't even talk without his teleprompter.  He makes fun of the handicap on the tonight show.  What president of the United States goes on the tonight show?????!!!!!!!!  He is at a ballgame drinking beer, what an example.  His wife takes down the pictures of George Washington so she can have parties in that room.  He is practicing bowling while the country is falling apart.  He gives money to the AIG and what did they do with it?  ha! While we are steaming over that he goes and prints billions of more dollars!  He is an idiot!!!!!!!  There will be no place in history for people to remember the good he has done because he hasn't done any!!!!!!  Because of him companies have to cancel health insurance for their employees.  I think they should have done stem cell research on him.  Maybe they still can.  He doesn't have a soul!  He is going against everything in the constitution.  He is an anti-American.  He wants to ruin this country so he can be king.  Enough my blood pressure is to high.

I can't believe that Tim will be home in 296 days. Wow how time flies. Maybe I will be done with Bobby's scrapbook by them. LOL. Christina and Sabrina were in a fashion show the other night. It was fantabulous. All the girls did such a fantastic job. They were all beautiful. Christina said that the above dress made her feel like a princess. She can just dream because I am not spending 420 on a prom dress and it isn't white for a wedding dress. lol Sabrina chose all short dresses. She doesn't wear heals very often but bought these. Probably for the etiquette dinner at school on Friday also. She needs to learn to dress like a girl more because she looks cute.

I just came back from St George where I have spent the weekend scrapbooking.  I have not scrapbooked since last year at this same event.  Kick me in the bum.  I got through 1 more year of Bobs book.  It is so boring  nothing new.  heehee  Boys books aren't as fun as girls.  I am going to have my kids over once a month to do scrapbooking so we will do it.  I think Jenna will love it.  She is very creative.  I just have to get her pictures to scrap.  



I got 20 pages done.  I think they were pretty good too.  I would love to be all caught up.  I won the big prize.  I won a family portrait photo shoot.  They ask the manager for the Holiday Inn to be the judge for this contest.  The question was "Who has the most outrageous photo on thier cell phone or camera?"  I won.  I have a picture from Hawaii on it.  My boys, Joey, Chris and Bobby were posing standing by the jacuzzi with their new speedos on.  I called them all and thanked them.  Thanks again boys. LOL  Most of the women refused to look.  Now Sarah B .  I don't know if that was worse than the one you put on your blog of Tyler in that tight grey thing! HEEHEE
It was very fun to bad it can't last longer.

Iwent to Florida for a week with my sister-in-law and bro-in-law. We had a great time. The asked us a couple days before we decided to go. It was all last minute,but we do most of what we do at the last minute. We flew to Tampa and went to St John's and the dog races. The races were so much fun. The dogs are so fast. The dog named Obama hurt his leg a quarter of the way through and turned around and went back with his tail between his legs. Sounds like he has the right name. Then we went to the Everglades. It was awesome, one of my favorites. There were alligators beside the road everywhere. We road a air boat and went on a sorta tour of the everglades and saw the most beautiful birds and more alligators. We moved on to Key Largo and went scuba diving, it was beautiful, the fish were everywhere and so many different kinds. I left some of my breakfast in the ocean. I decided that when I resurface I need to purge my stomach for some reason, I have been told that some people do that. We went to Key West the most southern part of the US and wow only 90 miles from Cuba. Guess we should have swam there...NOT! We stayed at Cocoa Beach but I didn't find Jeannie in a bottle on the beach. I didn't even find the bottle. I guess I am showing my age. Kennedy Space center was awesome. There was a shuttle on the launch pad waiting patiently to lift off-weather permitting. It would have been great to see that. Then off to Busch Gardens and roller coaster rides for 8 hours. It is the only place I have been where you have a zoo and rides in the same place. We did lots more and had a wonderful time with great company. I will treasure this vacation. Thanks Liz for the invite.
