Unfunnished Post

There are dark forces at work here, I tell you.

While I feed the baby I like to peruse Pinterest. Lately I have been seeing a lot of pins about scripture study, and I have been pondering the counsel given by President Nelson in our last General Conference to gain and become comfortable with personal revelation. So with those two things on my mind, Pinterest has been amazing with inspiration and motivation...

...Except finding time to read and study is next to impossible. I don't know how people do it, quite honestly. I keep trying different times of the day, and I am as of yet, unsuccessful.

Tonight I had just gotten Kip down. It was 7:30 and everyone was with Jeffrey, and so the house was quiet. He was sick today so when he got home from work he just crashed. The kids piled around him on the bed and watched his birthday present which just arrived yesterday. Avatar: The Last Air Bender. It was peaceful so I decided I was going to attempt scripture study again.

Not even half way through my prayer, Vince was out trying to talk to me and wanting to play. I soldiered on and attempted to do some actual studying. I wanted to learn more about the word "heritage" from a scriptural standpoint. Except Vince wanted to play "The Floor is Lava" with me, and kept trying to climb on the table and walk around. And then Beth came out, and then it was like an avalanche of children, all spilling out of Jeffrey's vicinity. And so I put my scriptures aside, fully intending to come back to them when bedtime was finished.

....

....

I can confidently say that tonight was the most difficult bedtime I have ever had the displeasure of encountering. Vince just didn't want to go down. And Beth came up with every stall under the son. After a little while, Keith came to talk to me and opened up about some of his fears. He is terrified of death, apparently. It baffeles me where he got that because death has never bothered me. I mean, I am sort of excited for it, because then my head will finally stop hurting! Just kidding. Sort of not kidding.
