The last time I remember going skating was my freshman year of high school. (That would be 20 years ago folks.) It is possible that somewhere between then and when I graduated in 1992 I went again, but not that I recall.

The first hurtle, of course, was to ask for a size 11 in womens.
I know. It's bad. I made Peter do it. I think they just gave me a ten in mens.

We had so much fun! It took me a while to get back into the swing of it--at first I made the kids hold on to me. But eventually I got back into it and was whirling the girls around the rink. "Mom! You're going too fast!"

There were some kids there who obviously do this kind of thing pretty often. They were all in sync with the music and had dance steps, break dancing, etc. The music was mostly 80's Pop and such--
Hello" Thriller!"
No doubt we'll be doing this again.
Peter and I think we should dress up for "Disco Nite" on Saturdays so we can get a discount. We have the greatest pair of brown polyester pants we've used on many a Halloween for Peter that would be just perfect.

Women's Conference 2009

I know you all have busy lives. But really, Women's Conference?
It was

Can I just say that Julie Beck rocks?

Empty bucket? It's full.

How many people in my ward who live 15 minutes from campus went?
Only 1 that I know of-- me.
I'm telling you if it is too much to take two days for this incredible experience it is really a shame. Make your husband take those two days off of work. Pretend you don't have obligations to all the people you are responsible for for two days once a year. You will not regret it. I promise.
You will come home invigorated, you will feel spiritually armed, and you will have so much FUN.
Oh my. So much fun.
I'm making plans for next year already.
