 Dear Kids,

I guess you’ve all heard about the change in plans, and that Super Sunday is today instead of next week.  That’s because Doug and Anita Price are tied up with their stake conference next week, but today will work OK for them.  So today is a combination Farewell/Super Sunday, and it all starts at 10:30 am at John’s ward, 1365 East Center Street in Heber.  Aaron will be speaking.  Lunch is right afterward, at John’s house, and nobody needs to bring anything, because it’s all taken care of.  With all their special diets, it’s tricky.  Speaking of which, John has been on the Keto diet for three or four weeks now, and he’s lost 16 pounds.  I asked him what his goal was, and he said probably 50 pounds, because he just turned 50.  “50 for 50,” he said.

So next week will be book club, here at our house at 5 pm.  We’re reading Frindle.  I’ll be throwing out candy to the kids who answer the questions right (and there will even be questions geared to Tyler) and if all the circumstances are right, we might do s’mores afterwards in the back yard.  My fire pit has been unused for too long.

Yesterday afternoon Aaron was endowed in the Provo Temple, and it was a great event.  It was wonderful seeing so many family members there.  Dad and I have a special feeling for the Provo Temple because we were married there, and it’s going to be hard for us when they “rebuild” it.  While it’s closed, we’ll probably go to the Orem or the Taylorsville temple, but neither one of them is very convenient, and it will take time to build memories in either place.

I haven’t written anything about my piano classes for a long time.  We’re still going strong at the Heber senior center.  It’s going on 10 years that I’ve been doing it, and some of my ladies have been with me nearly from the start.   A couple have dropped out, but I’ve just had two new ladies join up, and I hope they’ll be with me for another ten years.  I really hope I can keep it going that long, but having cancer makes it iffy.

Speaking of which, I’ll be talking to my doctor tomorrow morning and I hope to have some answers about radiation.  I’m supposed to be thinking it over, but I’ll just let my team make the decision for me.  At any rate, I’m sure I’ll still be doing the chemo.  I’ll be wearing my pump from tomorrow until Wednesday, and I’ll feel icky until Thursday or Friday.  Onward and upward!

Hope you’re all doin’ great and lovin’ it!  Mom
