Busy Busy Busy!

This week has and will continue to be insanely busy.
For those of you who don't know, I got called to be over the young women. I'm a miamaid advisor. Yep, over girls I'm only four and five years older than. Yesterday I went to mutual (the presidency is missing a secretary, so they invite me to come to everything, right now there's just the president, two counselors, and me), and we were discussing plans and such, and the bishop walks in to talk to one of the girls who just had a birthday, and asks "Who's the new Laurel you have tonight?"
Why, that would be the one you called and set apart on Sunday. Yikes! That was pretty crazy. But I am a LOT closer to the Laurel's age than to the leaders...
Justin and I also got asked to sing in church on Sunday, a duet. I've never sung in church where people can distinctly make out my voice. I'm good at blending and being a strong lead for others to follow, but a duet? I'm a little nervous, but I think it will be okay.
Yesterday I finally got new tires on my car! Now I don't have to be afraid every time I drive to work that I'll be late because of a blow out! That's always nice to have peace of mind :)
This afternoon I get to go to the MVD (I'm only working 10-2, random I know), to get a new license with my new name. We tried to go on my day off last week, but we went right after going to Social Security, and apparently it takes 24 hours to go through the system. That would have been nice for SS to tell us before we waited in line at the MVD. D'oh!
Right now I'm trying to work on the lesson I'll be giving on Sunday, and, well, as you can see I've gotten distracted. I just felt bad that I haven't blogged in forever.
I'm also SUPER excited for the new Harry Potter movie! Can't wait to see it! My parents got me a shirt from their CA trip, it's from the Monterey Bay Aquarium, it has an otter with a lightning bolt scar and round glasses, and says "Hairy Otter" it's super cute!
Anyway, I should get back to my busy life. Thanks for reading!

On the whole new license thing... they can't just use your old picture since it is attached to a different name. My old picture was way cute... my new picture? Yea... about that... yay hat head? Since you're super cute all the time it shouldn't matter, but I thought I'd give my sage advice when I could :)

Church stuff sounds super busy! Is it because you are in a new ward? At least you're keeping busy :)

Mostly it's because of the new ward I'm in, mostly old people, so any young people who come in get known really quickly, get callings and asked to sing and talk and all that, because we have the energy to still :)

Thanks for the sage advice, I look really pink in my new picture, kind of odd?

That is a really cute shirt. We saw HP yesterday. When you do see it you will need to post something on your blog about it

I am glad you finally have new tires. I miss seeing everyday. Life has been really busy for both of us.
