It has been a whirlwind few days. Thursday evening we got a surprise visitor. Grandpa Wilson came by to meet his first “Wilson” grandson. Apparently he was in the neighborhood :) Friday was fairly relaxed by most standards. Matt took his Dad on a hike that came to an end only when I called to tell them that if they didn’t come home, he would never see two of his children again. I ended up going to bed at 8:30 that night.
Saturday I had the Halloween Party at church which I already reported on. After we got home I was up until 11 preparing my talk for the next day. On Sunday I really needed a nap but didn’t get one because every time I started to drift off, either something banged, or a child yelled, or Spencer needed nursed. I gave up after an hour of lying in bed. Yesterday I had a Relief Society meeting at my RS Pres. house. It was beautiful. Right on the water. Then I did what any sane over scheduled, sleep deprived young mother does. I auditioned for a play. That’s right. I dragged my family (Grandpa included) to the Grand on the last day of auditions and I tried out for A Christmas Carol. I gave a dry reading (which I blew) I sang Let it Snow (which I would have nailed if I hadn’t forgotten everything but the first verse) and I pretended to go through an imaginary door ( I ran up to a door that was stuck and banged and shook the knob, I finally got through and found a crying baby that needed to be held. I think I did really well on that part). I should find out either way by the end of the week.
