Ya, weird, I'm "faculty"...anyways, we had a fun little talent show in the middle of the day to celebrate the end of 3rd quarter. I sang my tradition money-making "14G" in front of the entire school. The icing on the top was some of my boys in the crowd holding "MILLAR" signs. Cute, but sorry boys, no extra credit.

I love being a Foods teacher because I get to sew cute aprons to wear at work! These are my favorites lately. Its too bad that the "Flirty Aprons" kiosks at the mall are so successful, else I might have a pretty good business set up in sewing and selling these. We'll see, maybe I'll get so bored this summer that I'll try sewing and selling them anyways.

And...it looks like we're doing another show! Hurray! Me and Jason auditioned for "Thoroughly Modern Millie" at the Scera, and both got in as "Moderns", and I'll be a tap-dancing "Stenographer"! We'll get lots of stage time, incredible costumes, and the dancing is going to be fabulous--pull out those tap shoes, sister! And what a bonus that I have 3 sisters from my Nauvoo mission also in the cast. What a fun show, and even funner to be able to do with your spouse! This will be my first non-lead role in over 8 and a half years, and Jason's first non-lead role, ever, so we've both been a little spoiled over the years :) But this'll be so fun and stress-free! I can't wait to be a dancing chorus girl again! Everyone come see it running every night except Sundays and Wednesdays April 24th-May 9th! Call the Scera for the best seats! Its going to be stellar!

So our milk kept going bad after 3-4 days, and we kept thinking, "Darn milk! Bad again, how about that", until we realized it was probably our fridge losing power, although it was on the coldest possible setting, and that probably half of everything else in the fridge was sour by that point as well. So we moved what was left up to our freezer, which is a little colder, but still doesn't freeze anything on the shelf. Glory be, our landlady is sending a new fridge this morning! New appliances! How fun! Though it might take awhile to get used to not grabbing the milk out of the freezer.

So we climbed the Y yesterday--my first time! I know, I know, its about time, now being alumni and everything?! Well, there's a first time for everything! I had no idea it was over 100 years old! Apparently (after reading up on it on wikipedia), the plan was to spell "BYU", so they started with the "Y", but after 6 hours of a line of students hauling up lime, sand, and rocks, they postponed the other two letters, and just never finished!
