13 years ago today it was Open house at Deseret Towers (BYU Dorms.) This meant the girls could go to the boys dorm rooms for a few hours or the boys could go to the girls. I decided that this week I would visit with some guys I had met the week before. They had invited me to watch "Sliders"with them that night. One of those guys is still a very good friend of ours. I went to the boys' dorm a little early and thought I would go and visit this Tim Stanley guy who I had met a few days ago. He seemed very nice. I checked the map to see where he was living and it turned out to be the room I had met the boys in the week before. For some reason he wasn't there that time.
I went with my friends, they gave me emotional support and it seemed more like we were just roaming the halls and less like I was coming just to see him. He seemed happy to see me but then he excused himself to go get his laundry. My friends left too. I was kind of relieved. I looked at his music collection and saw a lot of my favorite music. He wasn't gone long. When he came back I asked if I could look at his music collection. That got the conversation going. Already we had something in common. Talking to him was so incredible. It was so easy and he was so interesting. Even better he seemed to find me interesting. I left an hour and a half later on cloud 9. There was chemistry and there was no denying it. That night in my journal I wrote about our meeting: "It was magic!" A year and a day later we were married. The magic and chemistry we enjoy together still amaze me.

What brought this sadness upon my poor little boy? Sam was playing with Joe's Magnetix (Magnetic building toys.) He was getting really frustrated when they wouldn't stick together because he was putting the wrong ends together. He was trying to make a long string of them at first and that sometimes worked, sometimes didn't and it was making him "kind of T-Od!"
Then he was putting them on their ends and trying to pick them up. Some of them of course picked up and others that had the wrong end up were just pushed over. I showed him how you have to use the right ends together or they push apart instead of sticking together. Unfortunatly he was frustrated when I left again to do more dishes and wanted me to continue to"fix it". Yeah I wish I had that much power over the laws of physics.
Poor guy. This world can be a frustrating place with all it's laws and rules! I don't know if he could be a scientist really, he gets way too emotionally involved. Sounds like the makings of great mad scientist though.

Adulthood means getting to stay up when you want to (and when you don't) spending your money on stupid things you can't afford, taking a lunch hour and eating at your favorite resturaunt (once in a while), having your own place your parents don't tell you to clean up all the time, etc etc.
