I'm going to the Storehouse. And I'm not happy about it. I appreciate all the support and advice, but when it comes down to it, our ward only has this assignment three times a year, and other people will suffer if we don't fulfill it, and I'm the only one who's willing to make it happen. The end. I'll try and post something uplifting soon. :)
**UPDATE to the Update (Aug 23)**
I went; thanks to my awesome Laurel advisor and Sim's preschool teacher for watching the kiddos. I took my one Young Woman and we went. And it wasn't too bad - I enjoyed the one-on-one time with my young woman and we were able to perform service. The poor girl dropped a jar of spaghetti sauce and it broke and spilled on her brand-new shoes :( but she was a trooper. And my kids were good overall while I was gone. I think the blessings are definitely there from going - I just hope I didn't set a precedent of doing whatever everyone else doesn't do... Anyway, thanks again for the support and encouragement!
