CA Fires!

I'm sure you've all heard about the CA fires. Adam and I are happy to say we are safe and still have a home. The fire burned 18 homes in our stake about 2 miles away. We feel so blessed to have stayed with my parents during our evacuation period. I am so happy we have family close by; I don't know what we would have done if we had no where to go. Rancho Bernardo is looking better everyday. The community is helping out a lot and cleaning up our beautiful town. Here are a couple pictures from the fire. These were taken yesterday about 2 miles from our home.

An update on the Lauper's!

I thought I would post a written entry to update everyone on what's going on with Adam and I. Adam is doing really well at HP. He is going on a business trip to WA this Sunday for a whole week!!!:( I wish I was going with him because I don't like being alone, but there's not much I can do. I will keep busy with Silo and my unfinished crafts:)
At the moment I have a couple crafts I am working on. I bought three large canvases because I am going to attempt to paint a picture for our living room. I don't really know what I'm doing, but my mom and sister are wonderful artists, so I'm hoping I inherited some of their skills! A couple other crafts I need to finish are my quilt (it's just about done, but I need to do the borders) and a picture board of Silo.
Well, I am still working at American Assets, but I am planning on going to school this coming January. Here is my situation...I want to get my Bachelors in Interior Design at San Diego State University, but there are complications. In order for me to get accepted at SDSU, I have to take 6 classes to enter into my desired major and a couple more generals that I didn't take at BYU-I. THe problem is that I must complete all these courses by Spring of 2008 in order to get in for Fall of 2008. 8 classes is about 24 credits, which is impossible to do in just one semester! This means I will not be admitted until Fall of 2009!!!!! So I called a counselor at SDSU and they told me to find a major that doesn't require many classes to transfer and then switch once I've been accepted. That is my plan right now. I am trying to find a major that doesn't require a lot, which will get me into the school. If anyone has any advice, please let me know. I need to be sneaky to pull this off, and trust me, I'm not good at sneaky!
