I'm Back

Yep, after a very long drive home from Denver I am back. The roads and weather were not fabulous, but we made it home with only one minor fender bender in the snow that was not our fault (no injuries and only a 20 minute delay). I don't think I will attempt to drive anywhere for a number of months, though.

Good news: I mailed my latest manuscript to the publisher. I wrapped it up right before we left for Denver. And since I did not have enough postage for it I brought it along until I could find a post office. In Albuquerque I was able to get postage at the airport post office, so off it went. I am hoping and praying it is well received. Is it lucky to have mailed it from Albuquerque? I hope so.

As for the trip, we stayed in a condo up in Keystone, Colorado. It was beautiful and conveniently located to the slopes. Not that we ski (being the Arizonans that we are), but we went tubing and had a blast. I did want to take the kids to the bunny slope, but there was just not enough time what with the hot tub in the condo ;-).

I promise I will addend this post later with pics of the trip, but I have to get back to work for now.

BTW, yesterday I posted on the ANWA blog. If you want a quick chuckle click here to read it (I promise it is funny).

Scripture of the Day: 1 Nephi 5:14-16


  1. Congrats for getting the new MS to the publisher. Is it another wonderful scripture or FHE help??

  2. No, it is a book about temples for LDS kids.

  3. I wondered what had happened to you. You were not only posting, but you also weren't publishing comments. I am glad you are back in town, and safe. I hope you had a nice time in Denver--and that you didn't freeze to death.

  4. I just went and read your story. Very funny! It also reminded me of my mother-in-law. She had a way of turning any negative about someone she was related to, into a positive. It was pretty funny at times to hear what she would come up with.

  5. Sounds awesome! I have a five-year-old who would soak it right up.


Comments are much appreciated!
