Random updates


  • The other day I was pretty distracted coming out of the grocery store. I wheeled up to the car, hit the remote to unlock, opened the door.... and realized this was NOT my car. What a weird feeling! I thought, this person must have left their car unlocked. Then I noticed it was also a Hyundai. Hmmm.... I mentioned it to Helaman and he said he can unlock one of his friends' Hyundais. Seems like a huge glitch to me....
  • We really enjoyed watching the Olympics this year using DVR. Seeing 8 hours of coverage in 30 minutes is fabulous! You get to see all of the cool stuff with none of the commercials or athletes milling about. Congratulations to our neighbor, gold medalist Nastia Liukin, who trains less than a mile down the street. We would have gone to her parade, but it was too hot.
  • Helaman is done with his round the clock service at the hospital. He now is a med student moonlighting as a traveling dentist, visiting nursing homes to help out the elderly with dentures and tooth extraction. It's not as glamorous as he would like - but is any job?
  • Charlotte's favorite word is "car". It's pretty cute when she points out the cars in her videos, but when we're in a parking lot - watch out. Car? Car? Car? Car? Car? Car? Car?

We've been loving the Olympics as well minus DVR. Shawn Johnson lives right here next to us.

Well Michael Phelps lives right across the state border from us. I was definitely missing my DVR. The quality of commercials during the Olympics was very poor.

Nobody lives next to me. But coming home to 24 hours of Olympics from USA and NBC was a lot of work to watch. Fast-forward through handball, badminton, all the boat races, get to the volleyball, basketball, swimming, and track and field. DVR is the greatest.

I can't believe you were in Houston on Saturday too!!! I would have LOVED To see you. I bet we just barely missed each other. SAD! And, by the way, yes, DVR was ESSENTIAL during the Olympics!
