A few years ago, while sitting in a sacrament meeting with mother, the lady that spoke made this comment....
A number of times we shoot ourselves in the foot and then we complain to the Lord He did not help stop the bleeding...
Mother was fast to point out these scriptures.
1 Timothy 5:7
7 And these things give in charge, that they may be blameless.
Doctrine and Covenants 58:2
2 For verily I say unto you, blessed is he that keepeth my commandments, whether in life or in death; and he that is faithful in tribulation, the reward of the same is greater in the kingdom of heaven.
Ok where and what am I trying to say here.
So if anyone wants to tell me what to do I will be more than open to what needs to be said...
Many of you know I opened my house up to the missionaries to come over to do there laundry on Mondays there P-day...
Well we have a set of missionaries that well I dont know if they dont get along or if they are lazy or if they are just ready to go home because lately.... they have been at my house more than I have.
I can come home they are there and I will leave for 2-3-4 hours and they are still there.
Now I dont mind if they come over and do there laundry or check there email on monday and stop by now and then on the week to say hi for a minute or get something to eat or drink... But there has got to be something....
is this making any sense...
I feel like I have shoot myself in the foot and now I am complaining to the Lord what do I do?

So It all came up tonight. The floors are all now cleaned... I cleaned everything... I still have to get the baseboards done and there is a white strip of wood going between the colors of blue.. but this is all the contractors doings...
So I have made some changes in my home... 1st thing I got changed was get my birthday present in stalled... its on the stand for now but it will be monted to the wall...
Now this door leads into the bathroom... i took out the corner cupboard and put in a wall to wall one and is now the new food pantry which was always on the wall across from the bathroom...
My china cupboard (the thing with the pink on it) is still the same place... but it has opened up that corner and looks great
The stand that the tv is on use to be on this wall next to the table... but I have opened that up...
NO MORE SHOES that is right the shoes are gone...
View from the back bedroom... this wall was the missionary wall... it will now house my window frames with pictures in them....
It is all coming together real nicely... give me time... Bedroom will be next!
I also cleaned (bleached down) the bathroom... Yeah I have had a busy day!
I am now waiting for the dry bedding to get out of the dyer so I can make my bed and go to BED!! And if you call me at 6 in the morning to sing happy birthday to me... I will get even with you!
Maybe I should also say that because the house has been in an up heave.... I had to move so much of it into my room... I have been living in this mess for the past month since the house has been un re-model and well It has happened I had it!
I know, I know, I know!
I can hear someone right now say to me "Scott Clean up your life"! I am so working on it. Yeah this is what I am living with right now... I am planning a big clean soon.

So I just helped I did not do much I helped my friend Sister Cottrell with doing the dinner.. OK she really did everything I just threw a salad together and helped serve the meal.
we had a nice salad, green beans, pork roast and a potato/butter nut squash dish. It was very nice. and oh so good.
now here is the funny part.
mormons are known world wide for... HAM, Funeral Potates and Green Jello with carrots in it.
So for Kelly to make such a wonderful meal this must have been a treat for this Sister from Utah.
Kelly got oh so many comments of how wonderful was..
again here is yet another funny part....
We heard the comment that, this was the first time they did not have rubbery chicken, or ham or funeral potatoes.
So maybe just maybe we need to look out side the box a little when it comes time to eat at a church activity. There are many many new recipes out there and we can explore with.
Good old Funeral Potatoes and HAM!

So it has been a month that I really dont want to re-live and well today is one of those days Yeah I write now instead of eatting...well I think I need to eat soon.
So here is another one of those WAKE up Scott and dont STRESS.
I am looking for a roommate again. Yeah my stress leave.. is high.. its not that I could not afford it but I like my play money. So I am looking I had someone coming in to look at the house and passed so that's life. (10 roommates comparied to 3) WOW. anyway I am stressing because I dont have anyone moving in February 1st. Keep fingers crossed and keep me in prayers that someone will need a room.
I know I have not been the best of friends to some of you. And I have not been the best brother to you like I should have been, and I know that sometimes I am so self centered its all about me and well I want to tell you I am sorry.
Life sometimes throws things at us to make us learn. It gives us a test to test us to see just how well we will handle things or learn from those mistakes or what ever it might be.
It seems to me that After the strom there comes a rainbow only if we are looking in the direction that the sun and the rain combines is.
Is that making any scence to what I am saying....
I was on a self center me me me thing today... Well here is how it all started... I have Tuesdays and Thursdays off for most of the time. It's my time I am sorry but if I want to lay in bed thats what I Want to do. Every Tuesday Susan thinks this is her time. She will text me about 9 am every Tuesday. Are we going to the movies? Ok if I have not told you about Susan she is 45 years old and Single and still lives off her father's dime... It makes me so mad... she can not hold a job and well I am not going into details.
Why is it that I cant have my Tuesdays to do what I want and not needing to worry about hurting her feelings when I say NO anyway..
Sometimes I just want to say GET A JOB! now I know this is very judgemental of me and I need to work on that.
But back to what I was working on... I feel sometimes its Scott will you do this or Scott will you do that and well when is it that I get to ask someone to do that or this... I am just not feeling very Christ-like. I think it also has to do with the house.. It has been a freakin mess for over a month now and I am not a happy camper... I hate it. I hate not having my life in order and everything in boxes and piled up all over the place I hate it.
I went to Costco today.. I needed to buy T-paper and Garbage bags and other little house hold things and this is where I turned bitter... I am the one who always buys this stuff with NO help and it makes me so freakin MAD.. BITTER barn here I am.
So sometimes I am to darn good natured and well yeah you can blame my Leitch parents for that. Its just that why do people just take it that I will do it and never mine what I think or care about.
See Self-Centered here. I am just in that pitty me mood.
ok I will up date you more later...

Now On Wednesday when I came home you might have thought I just hit the lottery which I can say I did not. But to me it feels wonderful... I also had to go to Target and buy new costers for the table and everything that will sit on my NEW floor.. Ready here it is....
You have not idea how excited I am about this... Now everything is getting repainted. Everything is going white for the first coat and then I will put the blues back on the wall..
