Our work at the Bishop's Storehouse has slowed down quite a bit since Christmas.  This is a good thing for one reason because that means that maybe people are working and not needing help.  But it's also a bad thing, because now we are just sitting around getting fatter.  I've been trying to figure out some things we can do to pass the time, and Thursday I came up with the idea that I could walk laps in the warehouse, so I did 6 laps before I had to come back in and help with some orders.  Today I mentioned it to another lady who is a misisonary there and she told me about a pedometer app that I could download on my cell phone.  I downloaded it and we did almost a mile today.  We zig-zag up and down all the aisles to make it longer.  Thursday I was just going around and around and it was making me dizzy.  :0+  My pedometer app counts my steps as well as tells me how far I 've walked and tells me how many calories I've burned, which today was sure not nearly enough.  It beats sitting......

The Republican Party is such a farce right now.  The main goal should be banding together to defeat Obama in the next election.  Instead we have candidates behaving like spoiled children who are mad because they didn't "win the game".  Problem is, instead of taking their marbles and going home, they are trying to stay in the game by stamping their feet and just crying harder. Why, if you were truly concerned about the Republican party beating Obama would you , instead of realizing you can't win because your numbers are too low, attack another fellow Republican?  Shouldn't you do the honorable thing - like Michelle Bachman - and bow out and put your support behind one who does have higher statistics?  The other thing I can't understand is why no one in the Republican party can stop Newt Gingrich from acting like the boy who didn't get picked to play on the team and is throwing a tempter tantrum.  Someone please stop him before he competely destroys the entire Republican Party!

I have decided that I will never be bored, and indeed I never am.  I have so many craft projects going and so many more waiting to be done that I will probably never do some of them.  I'm a person that can never just sit and watch tv, so I am usually doing some kind of needlework, or doing something on my laptop, or even doing a crossword puzzle while I'm watching tv. 

I always have big ideas when Christmas is coming, but after the last 2 years of trying to get one idea of a craft project done for Christmas, and failing for 2 years, I have finally come to the conclusion that I can NEVER count on doing a craft at any time after November 1st, and maybe even October 1st.  So one of my New Year's Resolutions is to do these craft projects now and actually finish them!  We'll see if I get them done.  I need to though, because I have many more ideas waiting.....
