New Temple

We went to the Draper Temple open house this week for Young Womens. It was a good time. I drove the Behemoth filled with 1 other leader, Alyssa, and some hyper girls. I hadn't felt old until that night. They wanted to listen to some good music on the radio. I don't know why they weren't interested in watching some Baby Einstein on the DVD player??? Anyway, they would change the station often to find the good songs. And I hadn't hardly heard of any of them! Am I that much out of the real world? I guess when your days are filled with diapers, Super Why, Mickey Mouse Club, toys, cleaning, cooking, and kid stuff you really do become detached from the real world (which isn't all bad). But I did feel old and uncool. Oh well, maybe I am.

To get back to the activity, the temple was so beautiful. And it felt so good to go into a temple. It has been quite a long time since Trent and I have gone. It made me remember how much I love the feeling in the temple and how important it is in our lives. Trent and I will be going together soon. I think we need the break from kids and we definitely need the spiritual upliftment that comes with attending the temple. If any of you haven't gone to the open house I would recommend it. I really loved it.

I know what you mean about feeling old and uncool. I am the second Counselor in YW in my ward and I feel that way often. We are going to the open house for our combined activity next month. I'm excited. It takes me back to the days of the Bountiful Temple open house and us as youth going to help out up there. Good times!

Just becasue you don't listen to that main stream music does not mean your not cool, besides, who isn't cool when they are riding in the notorious behemoth??!!

If you are uncool, then I'm totally a nerd! Uh, maybe don't respond to that, I KNOW my sisters already will! Oh well, I don't feel THAT out of touch. OK, nevermind I'm digging myself deeper! AAAHHH!

I'm glad you got to go. I'll go next week. I hear you on the uncool, out-of-it, old feeling. I feel that way. I can't believe how old we are getting. They are starting to play music on the oldies station that came out within our lifetime. I love to hear that you have these thoughts too.
