So it is almost midnight-once again I can't are some of the questions that keep rolling around in my brain...

1. Why doesn't counting sheep work anymore?
2. Why are gophers ruining my backyard?
3. Why have I gained 10 lbs since Christmas?
4. Why can't I spend the summer in Hawaii in a beach house with my kids?
5. Why don't my parents live closer?
6. Why am I sugar dependent (see #3)?
7. Why won't spring just come and stay?
8. Why is there only 6 more weeks of school?
9. Why do I keep pretending that American Idol is interesting this year?
10. Why have the Labit family and the ER become such good friends (see Michaela's blog ?

I can't imagine why I can't sleep...

Oh, while I'm up, here are some pics from Michael's big bash...

Happy Birthday honey, I'm glad one of us can sleep.

Elvis has left the building...

Doctors can be wrong...the magnet was diagnosed on Wednesday as still being in the stomach...on Friday it was in the big white porcelain bowl...if there is something to be said about Will, he is regular...

Happy Spring

It's been a wonderful conference weekend. It always feels like spring after the sweet messages of hope and you think the temple was emphasized enough???

We also had some added excitement...check out Will's emergency room visit here / and here
