The best Prozak out there

I cancelled visiting teaching. I'm skipping enrichment. I'm not even going to the camp training meeting tomorrow - even though I'm in charge.

Sunday, you will not find us at church - and I'm taking the bishop with me. Nor shall we attend ward council or BYC.

We are going to the BEACH. Tonight.

I'm, like, smiling -

You have a good bunch of boys there. Enjoy the time, be aware of your body and don't ask too much of yourself - especially when you come home. Take it slow and smile!

This sounds like a great cure for the time being.

Wish I could come! Please take lots of pictures of you topless and in a tiny thong. That's what they all wear in Brazil, right?

Tchau!

Becky
When Jared was called to be Bishop the Stake Pres. said "Bishop you are not always going to be Bishop, but you will ALWAYS be a husband and father. Make sure you make adequate time in preserving those relationships with your family members because you do not want to make the mistake I did and realize one day like I did saying 'who are these people I have forgotten who they are'"
He then said "learn from my past mistakes. Make sure to find balance between all that is required of you and remember that there are those things that can be delegated and should be and then there are those things that obviously can not be delegated." Becky I am so glad you guys are taking off. Have a super duper blast, you soooo deserve it!

YAY for the beach. Sometimes the sun really does help. Definitely the relaxing time will.

Yay for you! Relax and enjoy for all of us who are stuck in a church for 3 hours (oh, I really meant for all of us who are really blessed to go for all three hours).
Oh, I like Kristina's idea.
