Honey Crisp Apples

Last year Aaron discovered Honey Crisp Apples.  They are easily my favorite apple...super crisp and juicy....never mushy and they are sweet, but not too sweet.  They are back in the grocery stores and I couldn't be happier....

Who needs Cable?

We don't have cable.  We do have Netflix and we recently signed up to try Huluplus.  I like Netflix because of the whole no commercial thing and being able to watch episodes of my favorite shows anytime I want to (which is usually late at night before I go to work and after kids are in bed).  But, Netflix doesn't have recent episodes and some of the movie choices are pretty lame.  So, now we have Huluplus.  I don't like the commercials and it seems that it has a hard time loading sometimes...maybe our internet isn't fast enough?  But I have discovered some fun shows...some of my favs are (some are on netflix and some are on hulu and some are on both).  I LOVE to watch Bones, Grimm, Warehouse 13, Once Upon a Time, The Office, and Modern Family.  I also LOVE Downton Abbey....I like watching the real forensic type documentaries.  I think if I could go back in time I might like to go into forensic type work of some's truly fascinating to me. Anyway, I love being able to stream in what I want to watch, when I want to watch it.  I can't even tell you the last time I watched the news...I have an app for that :-)  What would we do without technology?  I may have to watch Revolution to find out.
 What are some of your favorites shows?  (If anyone still reads my blog :)

Some Stuff

*We are gearing up for the opening night of The Hunchback of Notre Dame.  If you live in the Licoln area and would like some good inexpensive entertainment come to North Star Oct 4-5 at 7pm or Oct 6th at 230pm.  This will be the first year I don't have a kid onstage!  Megan is the assistant stage manager and Matthew is doing tech.  I know so many of the kids and there are many new ones I'm looking forward to it.  I know both of my kids have had a great time preparing and the set is looking AMAZING!

*My life has been consumed with organizing all the meals the parents are serving the kids each night as they have late rehearsals.  We fed them for the first night last night and now just 8 to go.  Although I love being involved I do stress out about it....SURPRISE!  I always think "I should of taken some time off work for this" and once again, I'm thinking that...

*Aaron is busy with work and his calling at church.  He is now a High Priest and is one of the assistants to the High Priest Group Leader.  I have done my duty by pointing out that he is now officially old, believe me, I take that job quite seriously.  (tee hee).   

* Josh is really liking being in college and he is quite sure that he knows everything now.  He doesn't need to listen to his parents anymore.  I'm so glad we raised such a smart child. 

*Zack is taking a year off school and working full time.  He's still in Utah and I miss him so much.  He's working at Americas Best Contacts and Eyeglasses in Midvale.  So, if you need glasses go and visit him. 

*My house is the biggest mess and I just can't seem to keep up with it at all!  I'm having the hardest time right now with working....I just want to be a stay at home mom.  As far as work goes my job is interesting and I see things I never ever thought I'd see (working as a registrar in the ER overnight).  Sometimes it's funny and sometimes it's sad, sometimes it's boring and sometimes I'm in panic mode for hours.  But my heart belongs at home with my family.  I know I'm not the best mom I can be when I'm working and I have much guilt over that. 

*We recently introduced Hannah and Joe to one of our favorite movies, RAT RACE.  We all LOVE that movie!!  Hannah told me all about the guy with the marble stuck to his tongue and how he found a girl who had a marble stuck to her tongue too.  I love the innocence and let her think they were marbles and not piercings.  I had a complete hysterical (lack of sleep) laughing attack when Joe told me about the scene where the guy tells the bus driver about his wife having a baby.  (If you haven't seen RAT RACE, you should!). 

*I'm planning a trip to Utah in March.  I will be bringing Josh and his girlfriend Tori with me and hopefully bringing Zack back to stay with us in Nebraska for a few days.  I'm looking forward to it!  

Well, there's an update to what we've been up to lately.  I was reading through my blog the other day and I'm so glad I have so much "written" down.  I've been slacking in my blogging lately and reading past entries made me want to do better!
