Alex gave his talk today in sacrament meeting. His talk was fine, then the Stake Relief Society president spoke. Her talk was okay, but just a tad long. Then our musical number - which was the song "Ofa 'i 'api" - which is Tongan for "Love at Home", sung by a trio of Polynesian gals from our ward. Lovely, and they sang the whole song. In Tongan.
Which put us a little late going into the 4th quarter high council speaker. Let's just say, he was a slow starter. I told my husband I was going to get up and leave at 10:15 (5 minutes after we SHOULD be done). He told me I wasn't. Turns out HE left at 10:00 to take Danny home (who was hacking up a lung). The high councilman went not 5, but 10 minutes over. I stayed in my seat the whole time. I refused to be dictated to by genetics. Frankly, the parenting class that we've been going to for the last eternity has had a positive effect on my patience. Compared to our class (which is supposed to be 1 1/2 hours - but often goes over) sacrament meeting seems downright short.
We have a youth fireside tonight - I hope it doesn't go over. After all, Sunday is my day of rest.
