The little wire shelf in the process of being unloaded. And that box at the bottom? Filled with items that didn't fit on the shelf (and it's sitting on top of another box with the same problem!).
My new white cupboard being loaded with pantry goods. I will need another shelf, maybe two to really use it to it's fullest potential, but this is working out just fine for now ;)
Trying to get a poke at the cookie dough on the tray.
Marin having her milk and cookie after lunch. She wasn't very interested in lunch of course, but we made it through.
Lastly, I would like to have a few words regarding the recent news coverage of Prop 8. *sigh*, I wish things didn't have to be so complicated. A lot of people get so darn hot and bothered about this subject, and understandably so. It's religion vs. liberal thinking. First off, let me be clear that in our home, we are conservative Mormons. I don't feel like I need to justify that. Secondly, I don't see why people can't just agree to disagree!!! I would like to point out that although I may not support the idea of gay relationships, I DO recognize that America was founded on the principle of separation of church and state, and I enjoy my right to worship as I may because of this. Banning gay marriages is (in true fact) a violation of this original concept. The concept that drew frustrated Protestants from their homes in England to travel to America. This same concept applies to gay marriage. In the end, I know the outcome of Prop 8. Gay marriage will be approved and people will continue their lives as before. I just thank the Lord that a vote hasn't been issued determining whether or not I can have an eternal sealing ceremony in my religion. Boundaries must be respected on both sides, and while I don't agree, I don't have to. We all have our choice and we must decide where we stand. What I DO wish would change is the blind hostility and anger towards both Gays and Mormons. Neither are bad people. We are all humans trying to coexist and anger will only make us sad in the end. We all need to hold fast to the values we embrace, but respect our fellow men and live peacefully, after all, who am I to judge my brother, when I walk imperfectly?
