Just Some Thoughts

I'm down to three days of classes and then finals week of year number four. I'm getting to the end, just a lot slower than most people. One big research paper and four tests. That's not too bad, especially since two of the tests are PE tests! Piece of cake. I think if I leave my cell phone off tonight, tomorrow, and Thursday, I should be able to conquer the research paper without any distractions... Well except my ability to focus for long periods of time doesn't exist, thus I'm blogging.
I've found so many things to keep me busy. Sometimes I think too many things. Family Home Evening is going to drive me to drink some days. Last night we had our last big tri-ward activity. So much work was put into it and I was exhausted by the end. I just hope those who came enjoyed themselves. Next week is our last big ward activity. We're doing some dutch oven and just hangin out. I'm not gonna lie, I'm pretty excited that it's almost summer and thus we'll have less stressful activites. The one thing that discourages me the most about the work I put into FHE is the lack of participation. Our church leaders have told us how important Family Home Evening is, right? So why do so many single adults make everything else a priority on Monday nights? We try so hard to make our ward feel more united and more like a family.

All I can do is laugh. When I got to work today, I knew to expect something for what I did. I walked in the office and my office door was closed with the light off, which is very strange considering the copier is in there and everyone else had been at work for three hours. So I cautiously opened the door to see what was going on. All my office supplies, my mouse, phone, and chair were saran-wrapped. I just laughed. It got even better when I realized my keyboard had bee replaced by a piece of paper with a picture of my keyboard with the following note: "Ransom- You must repair the damage that you have done if you ever want to see this again!" Well I couldn't do any work without a keyboard, so I just unwrapped all my stuff and then asked what I had to do to get my keyboard back. The nice people I work with requested frostys from Wendy's. A little while later, a manager came in and asked me if that picture on the front door was my engagement picture. I was so confused, then I realized there was a picture of my face on a big body with the ugliest dress. (The second pic) They had put this picture up all over the office. It was sooooo funny. I haven't laughed that hard in so long!
