Busy, Busy, Busy

I know it's been a while since my last blog so I thought I'd let you all now exactly what I've been up to while on my track break! This track break has been a busy one, even if I didn't go on a trips. Well first off, I had my LASIK surgery last Thursday! YEAH! The doctor said that everything went really well! My aunt Kim took me to the doctor's office where they gave me Vallium (which Kim said I'm not any fun on 'cause it didn't really affect me in any way). Then the doctor took me back and had me sit in a chair. Kim got to stand outside the room and watch through the door and she saw everything on a tv screen. I had to put on a surgical cap and then they gave me a teddy bear to hold. (I wanted a picture with it but they pretty much get you in and get you out) But good thing I had it 'cause I'm pretty sure I squeezed it to death! The only pain came from the thingy magig that they put in your eye to hold it wide open. Good thing it didn't take too long! They also gave me some pretty awesome sunglasses and goggles to wear while sleeping and lets just say I am pretty good at putting eye drops! But after all that, I am happy to report that I can see 20/20!! YIPPEE
Well, I also went to the Draper Temple Open House. It was yet another beautiful temple of the Lord. I especially love all the murals in the rooms. I can't believe we have 12 temples here in Utah. (There iwll be 13 when the Oquirrah Mountain one is finished!) Other than that, I've been doing a lot of scrapbooking and stitching. I made this one for Kristi's Birthday. (It's an updated version of one I made for her like 6 years ago! I also made something for Terra's Birthday but since she can't open it for a few weeks here it is wrapped!
And I even made a quilt! My roommate asked who it was for and I am proud to say that it is for....myself! Yes it is the first thing I've made that has all been for myself! The front is a patchwork and with a flower applique which took like forever! And I think it turned out great! I can't wait to do another one!
