Worked and Worked and Worked aaaand Worked

Our lives have been rolling on and on like the wagon wheels of the pioneer children; instead of walking and walking and walking aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand walking - we are WORKING!

Mr. Samwise has picked up his 3rd job with the beginning of Summer semester with the BYU OIT department and I couldn't be more grateful for everything he is doing for me and how diligent he is about providing for our family.

I had a job interview today and return tomorrow for a working interview where I will literally be in the office, learning on the job, and being put to the test. Here's to hoping it goes well.

But our jobs are not the only things we have been working at. I received my calling in our new family ward - I am the Primary Music Leader and about two weeks after I got called I was leading the kids in Sacrament Meeting for Father's Day and it was STRESSFUL! Don't get me wrong - those kids are extremely adorable and I love my calling, but it is work.

On top of it all - we wanted to finish the apartment - I wanted to decorate and Sam wanted to see the floor. So we compromised and he helped me with my projects including shelves, a table, and hanging of many items from my aprons to my mirror to my calendar. And then I followed suit when he motor boated through our back room and our apartment is so close to being done! I can't wait to post pictures and share our home.

Not everything in our lives is work however - we've had highs and we've had lows. The greatest high was when I caught my first fish and then the 3 after during an awesome FHE activity per request of Sam. The low has definitely the cold that I caught last week that has now transferred to my sweetheart.

On we go to healthier days and hopefully another job for Mrs. Rosie!

“The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
