General Conference is back again!

Well, we stayed up late watching Miraculous again. Page was worried about us, too. See, the original plan was to watch one episode while our mini pies thawed, eat the pies, come to the computer to update LJ and check email and stuff, and then go to bed. But...the next episode was Glaciator. We would have just watched it without interruption, but we had pies that were already thawed, so we had to go eat them so they wouldn't melt. Page, good kitty that she is, knew that after pie we go back to the computer. So when we decided to go back to watch TV instead, she went into the office and started meowing at us like, "What's the deal?" or like, "Come on, you have to do computer stuff so you can go to bed because you need to sleep, you silly unhealthy people!" We told her what was going on, and she joined us for Glaciator.

Anyway, today was the first day of General Conference! Tadah! This time they had the Women's Session, too, and it was a really good session. President Nelson gave a talk that was basically like look, we don't ordain men to the priesthood because they're more important, okay? And it was a lot of stuff that we felt had been said a lot and we wish it didn't have to keep being said, but if anybody can give a "women are awesome" talk that doesn't annoy me, it's President Nelson. And I realize my attitude about the whole thing is absolutely terrible, but...I don't know, I don't have any excuses. It's a good thing President Nelson is more loving than I am.

And then he made all the new temple announcements right there in the Women's Session. It used to be he'd save those for the very end of Conference. I think it was kind of a gift to the women, as a token of how much they appreciate us or something. I don't really know how to explain it.

The main thing that stood out to me overall from today's Conference sessions is that I need to step up and be more committed to the gospel. Like, I need to spend less time staring at silly mobile games and more time thinking of ways I can be helpful to people. It's not something I'm really used to, and we don't have a lot of people in our lives to be useful to, but there's always something! And the more I work on it, the easier it will be to find out what it is.

Today I'm thankful for three great sessions of General Conference, the love that was shown by all of the speakers, the adorable young choir that sang at the Women's Session, getting to watch Glaciator again, and Page being such a good kitty.
