This morning I got up with my alarm, despite the fact that it's a Saturday, so that I could fit in a Spin class and some grocery shopping before coming back home for some family time. Once again, spinning never lets me down - what an awesome workout!
For those of you who only know me in this virtual context, you may not know that I'm a member of the LDS Church, (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, also known as the Mormons). This weekend is our semi-annual conference of the church, where our leaders speak to us from Salt Lake City and it's broadcast world wide so we can all listen to words of direction, advice, inspiration and spiritual uplift. Our family watches it on the internet, since we don't have TV. So this morning we watched the first part, then before the afternoon session began, we went to the park where we tried to teach Nicolas how to ride his bike without the training wheels. It didn't go well. Poor kid kept jumping off and saying, "It's too scehwy (scary)!" Oh, well. At least we were out enjoying our one day of 70 degree weather...it's supposed to rain tomorrow.
