Charlie, my youngest son, got his mission call last Friday. He’s going to Viña Del Mar, Chili. When he gets back that will leave me and my daughter as the only ones who don’t speak Spanish. It’s not like I’m not trying, but for some reason, I don’t seem to be making much progress. ¡Es tan duro para mi para aprender Español! Well okay, I’ve learned a little bit.

We had a great Thanksgiving. Several relatives like my fried turkey so I ended up frying 5 of them over the course of the holidays.

My daughter-in-law managed to acquire nine tickets to The Blue Man Group on Friday. We were sitting in $100 seats! The show was very entertaining, surprisingly enough.

Since my daughter-in-law is now on track break from school, I’ll be riding with my son for the next three weeks. That means advantages and disadvantages. Since he gets out before I do and I get out an hour before my daughter-in-law I’ll probably be getting home about an hour earlier than normal. But since my son starts an hour before I do I’ll be getting up earlier, not fun…

My second son has a phone interview with Sierra Vista. If he gets the job, it’s possible he’ll be riding with us too. This could get interesting!

We’ve been building a house for my in-laws. It’s almost finished. The main house is done, but we need to finish the two bedrooms and the master bath. I was trying to spray texture yesterday and it wasn’t going well. I did notice the air compressor was running too much but I couldn’t really check it, because I would have had to go through the living room and track wallboard compound on the carpet. It turns out the pressure regulator was leaking air which didn’t just cause the compressor to run too much, but also caused 80 psi instead of 20 to be fed to the texture gun. Well duh, no wonder it wasn’t working right!
