Come on Utah

When we first moved to Utah people laughed. We heard all sorts of funny things like, "Oh you are going to live in the bubble" "the mother ship" "the homeland"..."Why would you do that"
We laughed and our response was pretty much always the same. We go where we feel the Lord wants us to be. Joe and I had been very prayerful in picking Utah. A place that I for one had never even considered moving to. But, we are here still.
And now 2 pieces of advise for Utah in general. Because it really is a great place to live.
1- We need the drivers to stop singing primary songs and drive already!
2- Stop allowing high school students to edit the copy on the news!
I swear that is the only explanation for quotes like these...
* said while holding a ball of snow "This was falling out of the sky this morning"
* While standing in front of someones house that had just exploded, I swear there was NO MORE HOUSE behind this reporter, two people died!! " It was a bad day for someone out here in (I can't remember the city)"
* And of course We need to know anything that involves the church!! I am not kidding sometimes that is nice and sometimes it is just plain silly. "what does the lds church have to say about .... new crossing guards, the new liquor laws, the state of the roads in Utah ect... I mean somethings just (please I am not coming down on the church) are none of there concern. And I think they have more important things to worry about both in the news room and at church headquarters.

*BUT this one Takes the cake. And I quote!! "It's amazing (amazing??) when the warm air moves in the snow melts" (*what*)

People make fun of us enough, can we please stop giving them the ammunition. Utah is a great place to be, since I have been here I have had people open doors for me and my kids. I have not been to the store once where someone has not helped me unload my cart. My neighbors (even the scary looking ones) are all very nice people. But, we have got to stop helping people make fun of us!

Can I get an "AMEN!"?

Hilarious. True. Did I say Hilarious?

I say AMEN too. It drives me nuts that the news people want the churches take on everything. The church really doesn't care or want to comment on everything so why do they keep asking them to.

See there really is no place like home. And I am talking about my home. I said if you moved to Utah you might get more stupid! At least you haven't started doing that.
