181st Semiannual General Conference – Pre-conference notes

I can’t believe 6 months have gone by already. I haven’t even posted anything since the last General Conference. Yikes! Well, even though I’ve been a slacker on the blog, I’m still going to do my notes as usual.

Heading into this Conference, I haven’t heard any “rumours”, and there hasn’t been much talk that I’ve read on the Internet. I have no predictions myself. I’m going into it with an open mind, and I’m looking forward to receiving some direction. Getting through 10 hours of conference can be difficult, but it is always worth it.

One of my sons had a sleep over last night. This morning I was telling them that we had to get him home before General Conference started. Earlier we watched part of last night’s Star Wars The Clone Wars which had General Grievous in it. My 3-year-old daughter asked who General Conference was. I told her it was General Grievous’ friend, and she looked amazed, and asked if General Conference was from Star Wars 🙂

I’m pretty sure we are going to watch all 4 general sessions from home. In the past we’ve still gone to watch the first Sunday session at Church. We’ll see how it goes this time watching it at home with the kids. We generally have them watch half an hour of each session, and they watch the entire first Sunday session. Hopefully they won’t be too distracted at home.

The only other thing that is a little different this time will be the food after the priesthood session. Normally my Dad and I go out afterward. Since conference ends at 10 pm, it makes for a late night. This time my brother-in-law is also here, and we’ve decided to go out for dinner instead, so we’re going out to an all-you-can-eat Chinese buffet in between the Saturday afternoon and Priesthood sessions. It should be good.

Enjoy the conference!
