Idaho genealogist Amy Crooks has had a lousy couple of weeks. She and her husband each suffered injuries, she screwed up their checking account, her son was caught flashing his underpants at a girl at school, and yesterday she came close to burning down her house.
But, despite all this, she hasn't lost sight of what's important in life.
When I told my husband the story last night he couldn't help but laugh. He asked me "well why didn't you just let it burn?" My response was "I really could care less about this house, but what I couldn't bare to loose [sic] is all my research, the old photos of our ancestors I have collected, things I have from both of my grandmothers, and more."
