Dumb, Dumb, and Gummer

No, you read the title right, I didn't misspell Dumber. Here is the story about Gum, and why you shouldn't leave it in you pant pockets.

Today I was doing our laundry. I had the thought of checking my pant pockets but I ignored that thought. I moved the clothes from the washer to the dryer and found two barettes, that is all! After the clothes were all done being dryed, Cris opened the dryer and there was gum EVERYWHERE! One place we were lucky is it didn't get on ANY clothes. Of course, Cris was a little upset so I went in there to see what all the hoopla was about. I should have taken pictures but I didn't. It really was everywhere. I started washing with a cloth, to no avail. Nothing was working. I decided to google it and found this: There are a lot of ideas on there but they mostly entail a dryer sheet, water, and some sort of cleaner. I took a dryer sheet, wet it, and turned the dryer on for about 5 minutes. Then I tried to wash it out with the cloth . . . didn't work. I went and got some bathroom cleaner . . . didn't work. I got out my Orange Clean, wet cloth, and dryer sheet, the gum washed right out. So, if you find yourself in a bind . . . just google it!

As for yesterday, I have to appologize. I was definately on a downer. When Cris came home he helped me out imensley and made all the bad go away. We had tickle fights, watched tv, had an easy dinner, and Cris just let me vent as much as I needed.

Today I was able to go to the temple. I really needed the uplifting I got there. I love the peace and serenity that is there. It was the first time in a very long time that I was able to just feel calm and not worry about anything that was going on around me. I had this overwhelming feeling that Heavenly Father loved me and that I am doing a good job, I just need to work on things a little bit more.

It snowed here today and news has it that I should wake up to 3-6 inches of snow. It is OCTOBER, HELLO! I hope we don't get that much but if we do, it will be fun I guess! I really hate that there is no such thing as fall or spring in Utah, it is either extreme COLD, or extreme HOT!

Don't you love it when the DH comes home and makes everything better? I love it when they do that! I'm glad you are feeling better. I do know how those days are when everything seems to be going against you. The Temple is a wonderful place for making it all go away! I love the Gospel!

By the way, I tagged you!

That's funny about the gum :) Not fun to clean up though. Glad you could have a better day and go to the temple too. I can't believe you have snow! It was a beautiful weekend here! Crazy Utah :)
