Our Lives Are Made in These Small Hours

I've got a lot of people to be praying for this week. Makes you realize that life is precious. It really is. Treasure the people you love. And keep in touch with them to let them know you love them. I'm thinking of you, G-ma, Ashley, Mike, Lisa C.'s mom. I'm definitely keeping all of you and your loved ones in my prayers. I know, you're probably all shocked that I started out with something not-sarcastic or non-light-hearted, but this is important to remember, so there goes my shout-out.

In other news, I am way excited . . . in fact, most likely entirely too excited . . . about a certain building that has been under construction close by my place. I've been wondering what exactly is going to be put there where people are building and such, but yesterday, turning onto 8th north, I saw the sign! (sing it with me, "i opened up my eyes . . .") And it was a . . . -drumroll-


For those of you not indoctrinated into the glory that is WinCo, let me shed some light. It is a low-price supermarket that is way awesome. That is very little light, and doesn't begin to describe how mucho bueno it is, but it is a great and wonderful option for low-price grocery shoppers who don't want to deal with the insanity that is the Orem Wal-Mart. There are several WinCos in Oregon, which is how I know what it is in the first place. Oh, the times I tagged along with Mom when she took her trips to Costco and WinCo. So I'm uber-pumped that there's one being built about a minute away from where I live. Yes, the simple pleasures. When does it open, when does it open?!?!?

Stake conference this weekend. It's gonna be good. And I'm going to hope and pray that the stake choir does well. -crosses fingers- Let's do Jenny proud, guys!
