The last 8 days have been filled with firsts for me. So let's start with the first first:
1-Eli and I participated in our first Easter egg hunt last Thursday. I haven't done that since I was a small child. More importantly, Eli ENJOYED an organized activity.
2-We went to the horse races with the Spencers. I had never been before and it was so fun. I had no idea that there were so many intricate details involved in betting, breeding, racing and gambling away your money-there's five bucks I'll never see again.
3-I spoke in Sacrament meeting on Easter. It was the most relaxing Sacrament meeting of my life; I told the bishop that I would be happy to just sit up on the stand whenever he liked.
4-Number four is the real reason for this post so I am going to CAPITALIZE EVERYTHING FOR EMPHASIS AND USE LOTS OF EXCLAMATION POINTS!!!!!!!!!!!! TO GET YOUR ATTENTION:
I GOT INTO LAW SCHOOL. AND I GOT A SCHOLARSHIP. OH MY GOSH. If you know me at all, you understand that this has been a dream of mine since before I was born. Not sure what we are going to decide yet but I am very happy, excited, scared and nervous. We would appreciate it if you could all keep us in your prayers while we sort through all of the details and try to decide whether or not I am going to do this.
5-On Monday, I participated in a blood study at the hospital. I sat there for 2 hours while they put three ivs in me and drew blood. And I got 200.00 for it-which unfortunately seems like a lot less money than I thought it did before I knew that I got into law school.
On Tuesday, read the aforementioned post: went to Dancing with the Stars and passed out.
So let's see, just to recap: horse races, got into law school, fainted, went to Dancing with the Stars. Never done any of those things in 25 years; did them all this last week. I wonder what next week holds.
