"Go Blog about it!"

That's what Robert said to me yesterday when I called telling him I was feeling sick to my stomach. I think that's the 2010 version of

"here's a quarter call someone who cares"

What do you think?

Usually he's a little more sympathetic, but he was at work, where he is the

big boss man and it can't get out that he has a sensitive side.

So I forgave him,

But I won't forget.

About 14 years ago he made a snide comment about me becoming one dimensional, a comment that has bit him in the hind quarters more than once.

Robert forgets that I have a near perfect Instant Recall of all things said to me or heard by me.

I'm sure he'll regret ever saying, "go Blog about it."

Other than that the month has been great.

I started to teach seminary on the first day of February.

What is Seminary you ask?

Here is the official word from

Seminary provides weekday religious training for youth in public or private high schools and homeschools.

Each year we focus on one of the scriptures. This year we are studying the Book of Mormon, and while I admit, I was apprehensive at first at how I could manage the five am wake up call, teach high school age kids and get my kids to school on time, I'm happy to say I've been blessed.

With the blessing of teaching Seminary from 6:00-6:45 am each day I've been able to accomplish the following.

1. Keep my house cleaner than it has ever been, including (but not limited to) dishes being done the NIGHT before.

2.Get up early and not hate it- seriously, I wasn't a morning person. Even though some days REQUIRE a nap, I've not been unhappy with the early morning.

3. The kids only missed the bus once- miracle in itself.

4. The Kids have been very helpful in getting up with smiles and getting themselves into the shower.

5. I've really enjoyed the daily study and application.

So that's all I have to "blog about" today.

It's so amazing to become converted to Seminary and all that goes with it - I literally taught for 15 years, 19 classes (because in Reno I taught 2 each day) -- and I am SO not a morning person. (Well, OK, I am now but I sure wasn't!). I feel like the blessings are huge -- as you are discovering. And I know that you are wonderful -- those kids are so lucky to have you with them early in the a.m.

And I"m with you -- Robert will eat his words -- repeatedly. ha!

You are too funny! :) I know better than to call my hubby at work. I think I would have gotten worse than that. :) I hope you're feeling better! :)

LOL!! I can't believe he said that! I guess that he could have said, "why don't you go update your facebook status in place of that comment too"...but you know I'm just as addicted as you HAHAHA!

Way to go Kareena! Early morning seminary, and I know you do a great job! Lucky teens. I'm so proud of you. (and I secretly hope to never have to teach e.m.s. myself). I shared Robert's choice words to you, with my husband. There have been times when I'm talking to hubs on the phone and in saying "good-bye, I love you" and get just a good-bye because others may hear. ooh, not that. I'm glad you blog!

Yes, please go blog about it. I love your blog. Let's try again if possible. We will be in Texas in September to help out when the new baby arrives. Heidi had so much fun seeing you when she was there. I am ever so happy that your guys did have "fast feet"/ when they met the big snake. That is scary. I will have to tell you the story of my nephew when he was on a scout outing in the Sierra's
very funny and scary. love you
