So much to post, so little time

I have been away from my computer for 3 whole days! In those days I had constant thoughts of things to blog about. They were all really witty and great, I promise. Too bad I can't remember most of them:(
I did have some thoughts. Controversial thoughts. Most may not agree with but I have to say it. But first my disclaimer....
This is our blog, well mostly mine since Josh never posts anymore. If you don't like what I write, don't read it anymore. It doesn't hurt me in the least if you stop reading. But if you do continue to read, please, please, don't send me an email disagreeing with my opinion. Write it on your blog, where I can chose to read it or not. Don't write comments that I will just delete after I read them. To each their own, that is why I have this outlet.
Onward. Last week Josh's step-grandfather died. They have only been married a couple years and we were just terrible at getting to know him and spending time with him. So as I relay part of this story I am certain I have facts and info wrong. But that isn't really the point. I'll get to the point. So Josh's step-grandpa, Hans, was as I understood it, pretty good friends with President Dieter F. Uchtdorf, of the LDS First Presidency. I guess some years back Hans was his personal pilot. Spent 5 hours a day in a plane with him. I think that would make you friends. Anyways, Hans passed away and at the viewing on Thursday night President Uchtdorf was there. He said he really wanted to speak at Hans' funeral (I guess they had asked him) but he couldn't because he had to be at Larry H. Millers funeral that same day. That upset me. I understand Mr. Miller is a big guy in Utah (in more way than one) but I HATE the politics that go with the Church. Because such a famous Mormon died you can't be at your friends funeral. I hope your mother doesn't die the same day as Marie Osmond (she is obviously my favorite famous Mormon). It just bugged me super bad. And on that note, I also hate that part of my tithing goes to pay tuition for students at BYU. That bugs me pretty bad also. Now that I have said my share of dislikes about my religion, I will leave you with that. Have a good day :)
