I've been asked recently what I am doing in my new job as office manager/secretary at Holladay Cottonwood Mortuary so here goes.

I do normal things like answer the phones but what's different about working at a mortuary is the typing of programs, obituaries and submitting the latter to the paper. I may have to scan a photo and put it on these items. I close out files and make sure all the paperwork is completed. There are other things that will come up. I will also be working on reports for the general manager but I haven't been given those assignments yet.

I'm very happy that I have this job and look forward to it being a wonderful experience!

Whitney's November 2010 Visit

It was so nice to have Whitney for 3 days. It was short but she made the most of it. Thursday we had a girl's night out. Whitney took Jessica, Hailie, Natalie and I to the $1 movie to see "Despicable Me." It was a LOT of fun. The show was great but better than that were the girls. Hailie could tell her mom what she enjoyed about it and I was picking popcorn out of Natalie's onesie. Jessica said she picked out more the next morning. Ha, ha! They suffered no ill effects. Wow--can they eat popcorn. Whitney and I took some photos! Enjoy!

Ashley and Luke

Here are my daughter-in law, Ashley and my first grandson, Luke David Lambson, son of David and Ashley. He's a cutie! I stole this from Ashley's blog because I don't live near them and can't take a photo of my own!

We had our ward Halloween party Saturday evening. It was pouring rain when I picked up Jessica, Hailie and Natalie. Hailie, the Lady Bug and Natalie, the Pumpkin Fairy joined us for Chili and cornbread, apple cider and doughnuts. Then ward members chose a classroom to distribute goodies from and the spooks and princesses paraded around the building asking for treats. The Lady Bug received her share and was very pleased about it. It was a wonderful evening. It's always fun when I get to spend time with my grandchildren. I heard Luke was a bumble bee and hope to see photos soon! Happy Halloween!!

It's been about 3 weeks since I started my restricted diet and I've been able to fit into some of my clothes that were very tight previously. I don't know for sure since I don't own a scale, but I think I've lost about 20 pounds.

I also took a walk today and some photos in the park. We had a pretty good fall rain this morning so I decided to take a few pics.

I don't have a photo for this but just an update on my health. I've finally gotten a diagnosis that I believe is accurate. Since 2001, just after my father passed away and my then husband began to opening express his desire for a life different than I had hoped, I began to have painful symptoms that I thought were unrelated. Over the years, I've tried all kinds of pills and gone to many doctors. I finally saw a urologist who says I have cystitis. It's a chronic disease that causes the nerves in the bladder to be ultra sensitive. It is very painful and hard to deal with. I've had one heprin treatment but currently, even with my insurance, I am unable to afford the other 5 weekly treatments. I am on a strict non-acidic diet which is very BORING! The positive side effect is that I have been losing weight and am able to comfortable wear clothing I haven't been able to get into. I hope to start feeling much better soon but know it will take patience.

Thanks to Adam and Jessica for a great birthday party honoring Natalie Grace and her first birthday! They came to my house and brought a yummy dinner. Natty ate a whole piece of cake in record time. She's SO funny! Enjoy the pics!

I had a great weekend with all of my grandchildren visiting. David, Ashley and Luke were able to come down for one day and we had a nice time. As usual, Hailie and Natalie were wonderful!

Today is Murray High's Homecoming Dance and Taylor is going. He's off playing laser tag with his group of 7 couples now and I went to pick up the wrist corsage. The salesperson there gave me this red rose for doing the "dirty work." Pretty good!

The Dummy Scream

Hey what up! T-Bizzle's in the house! I got a sick video of a hanging dummy in the kitchen. Mom is the victim and it cracks me up. I didn't think I would have to convince mom to look in the kitchen but it worked. I have many ideas for pranks with this new dummy that I have been awarded with from the girl I am taking to the Homecoming dance. Word.
