kitties

Kittens. They're irresistible.

Today has been so eventful! And most of the events were done before one o'clock! But there are more to come! Whew.

The day started off with the first session of the 181st Semiannual General Conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I was going to link to the first two sessions, but apparently they're not on the web yet. But! when I went to get the not-ready link, I found out that there's a text version of the talk by President Uchtdorf that we mentioned last week! So here it is! I should probably point out that that talk is addressed to the women of the church (it still applies to everyone--that's just to provide some context). President Uchtdorf is such an amazing speaker. He gave another awesome talk this morning, but I can't link to it yet, as previously explained. The gist of it is that we may feel tiny and insignificant and like we mean nothing, but each one of us means everything to God. It was very encouraging.

Now let's use some cuts, so people don't have to read this whole long entry all at once (unless they want to).

And that's the long, unresolved tale of naming Mom's new cat. We may find out more when we join everyone for dessert tonight.

Today I'm thankful for getting to go grocery shopping, fun discussions about cat names, finally beating Final Fantasy XIII!, Deluxe Grahams being on sale, and another wonderful Saturday of General Conference.
