Wow...a lot has happened since I last wrote....update...Dec 8th elder Rob went into the MTC....Dec 15th I had a Hysterectomy....Dec 28th Elder Rob left to his Kennewick Washington Mission...Jan 3rd started my new job as attendance secretary...(probably something I should have waited on since my recovery period is 6 weeks and it had only been 2 1/2 when I went back) It has been a long recovery and I don't suggest anyone ever doing it the way I have. Stick to the 6 weeks...I can now see the importance in that...my problem is I had to go back since it was a new job..and train my replacement as well. Things will all be ok, just need a little longer to recover due to it. It's been fun reading Elder Rob's letters and emails since he got to his mission. He is now in Hermisten Oregon, about 1/2 hr from Kennewick and loves his mission. I manage his finance's and I notice when he uses his debit card...hahahaha...he doesn't use it much, but occasionally they eat out or something at a fast food...LOL...my connection with my son right now. Sounds crazy, but I know he is doing good when I see them stop for a fun lunch once in a while. Two latest movies to watch are True Grit (of course never the same as good old John Wayne) and
Yogi Bear...haha...I liked them anyway. Back to work at the Genealogy Library...it's been fun working in the front lobby etc. I have found some information for a co-worker of mine about his father that he doesn't know and more names to take to the temple..which we better get doing soon! All in all...other than being ready, I mean REALLY ready for Spring...things are doing great at the Schroeder house!

It's late, everyone is in bed, where I should be but of course not able to sleep right now...I've just been thinking...things are going good here...everybody healthy (except a little recovery left on my part, and a cold for Gary) happy and content. Elder Rob is doing good, Staci and Trevor are doing good...(except maybe the little thing like her wallet getting taken from her car at the gym tonight)minor little bumps in the road...then I hear about a dear friend of mine...one who I used to be such great friends with growing up...ya know...thick and thin...that kind of stuff...one with whom recently, thanks to facebook, we have been able to reconnect and have some great girls afternoons out talking and laughing with another great friend, again rekindled friendship through facebook....I learned, through her daughter that she has been diagnosed with breast cancer....first stages so there will be a lumpectomy and some radiation involved....but a definite bump in her road....just worried about her and thinking...something new to add to my prayers...something new for her and her family to face....breast cancer..such a nasty invasive disease that intrudes on a world of women who don't deserve it, but who teach us what life is all about....hang in there Diana...you are one of the strong women of this world...and you can conquer this intruder as you have others.......
