So this weekend we did nothing, but it felt like we did everything. Friday we ran around and did errands all day, and Saturday we did the same. I mopped the kitchen floor, while Bryan and my dad went to Auto Zone to get his car some new spark plugs and then came home fixed it and then went back to Auto Zone to have them reset the computer. I guess to reset the computer in the car you are supposed to take it to the dealership, but Auto Zone was nice enough to reset it for us, even though they were not supposed to. Did I mention that my car is getting a new transmission in it? Yeah it is going to cost about 2 grand to have it fixed but the car it worth more than that and we could not get a car like mine for that amount of money. So we decided to go ahead with it. I have not had a car for over a week now. It is OK, but I am starting to get stir crazy. I even walked about a mile to the store and a mile back, just so I could get out of the house. I do not know how people do it with only one car. It is doable, but in the winter time I would not want to have to do it. At least it has been sunny here the past couple of days.

Then Saturday night we had my friend Dre and her husband over for dinner. Dre lived with my parents for a couple of months after she graduated college in December of 05. They had not met her husband. They only got married this past November. They are cute together and he makes her happy. It is good to see her happy! I wish they could have stayed longer and that we could have chatted more, but that is the way life goes...FAST!!

We watched the Prestige with them and if you have not seen this movie I would suggest you find it and watch it. An then watch it again! The second time was MUCH better and I understood a lot more of the movie! It is a GREAT movie and I think Bryan might even go out and buy it!

Then Sunday was a FAST day too. Bryan and I both had to give lessons. Mine was in YW and his was in Elders quorum. So my mother got to watch Kambria. I do not know what we would do without my family being around at church. It would be hard to have to teach holding a baby in your arms. Then we both had to give talks in Sacrament meeting too. it was on the topic of symbols within the church. It was a hard subject for me to talk about. Not your typical fasting, prayer, or even repentance talks. But it was good for both of us and I am GLAD it is done!

So on to the title of my post...Bryan got a phone call from his dad about 7pm last night that his sister Lisa's water broke!!!! So Bryan did not get the message until about 9pm so when he called his dad back they were just leaving their house to drive to Provo. She is about a month early, which is kind of scary. Bryan sent Lisa's phone a text message saying good luck and that she is in our prayers. She texted him back about 12am this morning that she was dilated to a 9 already and that it is crazy she is going to be a mom! We are excited for her. It is a little girl and they had the named Madalyn picked out. So Good Luck Lisa and we look forward to hearing more of the story!!!

Going down to one car has been interesting for us. We still haven't decided if we are going to fix the other. It's great that Kevin & I work so close together and almost the same hours. Summer is fine because Kevin rides his bike. I couldn't imagine being home though with no way out.

I hope all goes well for Lisa and the baby. Good luck getting the car fixed. I hate car repairs. We have put two transmissions in Alden's blazer in the last 18 months. I feel your pain!
