So busy

Life has been so busy lately. I took a new job at work and have been working tons. Its been fun and interesting all at the same time, but I sure hope it calms down some. We have this huge training issue that is government mandated so we have to make sure everyone gets trained and on time. Man some people just drag their feet, I can't believe that some just don't want to do their jobs. So frustrating.
Life at the singles ward is good, they are some really great kids. We go to the temple twice a month with them. Once for endowments the other for baptisms, it really great to go with them, to see their dedication, and feel of their testimonies. We had a fun Halloween party with them here Saturday night. Haylee really enjoyed them, she was a little shy but then she came around. Uncle Aaron and Aunt Kimmie were here to, she really loves them.
We went to Colorado for a super short visit, but it was good to see Brett and Brittany and Calan. Calan is getting so big and we so miss them. Flight benefits are great, we flew out Friday night and flew back Saturday night had to leave Saturday about 3 hours earlier because they delayed the later flight and we weren't sure if they might cancel the flight.

I spoke with a cousin last week, and learned alot about my maternal grandmother. Her name which I knew was Eva Gertrude Wells. She did not like Gertrude and so she went by Eva G.

She had been married before she married my grandfather Floyd Kyllo. I knew that, she had a daughter Lois Jean, I knew that too. I always knew that my Aunt Lois was 12 1/2 years older that my mother. My grandmother was an nurse and one day she came home because she had spilt something on her uniform and found my Aunt Lois under the sink and her husband no where to be found. She pack my Aunt Lois up and moved from Wisconsin to Washington. I was quite suprised that in the 30's she would do that. I asked my cousin why Washington and she said that she had a friend who had family there. I always knew that I had very strong willed and determined women in my family but I have a much greater respect for my grandmother. I wonder what she felt and was thinking taking a small child across the country be herself. All of my grandmothers family is in Wisconsin or Minnesota. My grandmother died when I was 2 months old. My mother was just 18 and my Aunt Karen was just 14. I know that my mother always missed her mother. I wish I could have known her. I am thankful for the knowelege of her that I have and for the memories that are shared with us.
