Alright, so I might have lied...
I didn't get the post up.
In fact I haven't posted in a really long time.
I apologize.
Life happened.
And.... When I say "I'm gonna post such and such at such and such a time", I make myself really, really not want to do it.
So, suffice it to say, the seminar was really, really cool and enlightening.
Now I'm going to go do... Life Things... :P

All right...

I admit it. I lied. But I had actual real life responsibilities to do today, well, yesterday I guess. (The word "Responsibilities" has far too many "I"s... It's trying too hard.) Anyways, I'll probably get it up sometime on Monday. I'm working on it, but its LONG-ish.
I wish y'all goodnight, and good riddanc.... Yea, just "Goodnight". Forget the other one... :D

For all of y'all who wait with bated breath for me to post something here or on facebook. For those who wait for me to put up something profound or deep. For the two or three people who actually read my blog. I make you a promise. Sometime before Sunday is over, there will be a deep, thought-provoking, hopefully interesting post making an appearance here... Mostly because so far, this weekend has been the most challenging and thought-provoking I've ever experienced, and I want to share with the world wide interwebs. We've (My two brothers and I) been going to the Bill Gothard basic seminar. This man is an amazing speaker and I cannot even imagine myself as pure and un-self-centered as he is. It seems like He has the entire Bible memorized and can quote it at will. Anyways, I'll explain more later, 'cuz I've gotta get to bed so I can get up and be alert tomorrow. G'nite random interwebs! :D

Donut Sticks

When you're this small (About three) and you go to sleep for your nap, and you wake up and can't find anyone in the house... You're first automatic thought is that your family has ceased existing.

I hate oatmeal creme pies.

I love donut sticks.


AM. PER. SAND. Favorite typographical symbol ever. Mainly for the name... AM. PER. SAND.

I have some funny's... I hafta show y'all... I apologize. :P

I really loved the Church service this morning.
It amazed me. I am all refreshed and my heart is singing.

I have started playing Howrse again... I played for a while but then I stopped... Go see this: or this: if you wanna see my old account. Anyways, I just wanted to show you some pictures of my stuff on there. So here:

They have updated the site a lot... It's very cool now, (not that it wasn't before, it's just cooler now.) they have new Companions for
your horses. This is the cat. He is very cute. :P

They also have the coolest coats now, too. This one is called "peacock" surprisingly enough.

I really love howrse.
*GASP* I love Dr. Who!!! Wanna see? Too bad! You're gonna!

I love coffee too!!

I have Discovered that I really don't like callous people. Or underhanded people.

I also Discovered that most of my friends think I'm a rabbit. Hey! Maybe that's why I can jump so high... Oh, wait. I can't jump high. Never mind.

I told my mum today that it was okay because: "She's a big-wig too!".

My mom's coworkers are trying to get a cheerleading squad together.
Now I understand you're supposed to support your loved ones, but I had to tell her that I refused to join the squad. :P

OH! My mom got the coolest thing ever for her birthday. It's the first season of "Five Mile Creek" on DVD!! FUN FUN FUN!!!

I would put up pictures of my burn, but I don't know how to get them from my phone to my laptop. It's mostly better, just a little raw and tight. It's all pulled up and puckered. It'll be an awesome scar someday!

Anyways, G'nite!!

My Brudder

So, I had this problem... My computer would not connect to the internet. And my one brother was busy with work and my other brothers were far away in another state. So there was no help for it.
Then, my internet guru brother came back and spent like an hour fixing it. He is awesomest. :D Thank you internet guru brother!!!
So now my internet works. ZONINO!!
And I felt like I should blog because I haven't in a while. *GASP* All of my siblings are going/have gone on vacation. Except LRT1 and Cavagan and Cherrynoble... Hmm, ok I lied. Only two of them. But one went to Alabama and the other one is going to Branson, Missouri.
Tat and I found a dog last night... It was a german shepherd. We called her owner, but he didn't answer so we left a message and brought her home. The dude called back today and asked if he could come get her. Of course we said yes so he came and picked her up. He was a nice dude. So, goodbye overnight dog. Her name was Lokie. She was a sweetheart.
Here is a video... Have fun with it.

Thursday, July 21, 2011


I was suddenly and unexpectedly hit with a bout of INVIGORATION just now. (Read that word and imagine me waving my arms wildly. Just ask the dogs if you can't imagine that. They saw it several times.) I was just minding my own busyness reading Hyperbole and a half (If you haven't heard of that, go here: ) when all of the sudden I got up. It was odd. I then proceeded to "clean all the things!"
I started the laundry, the dishwasher, put away some stuff off the counter, straightened the living room, cleaned the front room, Played with the dogs who were feeling slightly dejected and ignored, wiped the cabinets in the kitchen, cleaned up the mess that is the result of babysitting and then decided I should blog.
So, I'm blogging.
OH!! I have an awesome brother who got a new motorcycle today! Woohoo for him. And me, 'cuz he gives me rides all the time. Twice in as many hours!!
I keep trying to put things that I think are funny, then I realize they aren't really, I'm just tired. So my blog post is not going to be amusing. Sorry.
OH!! I'm a genius. Just wanted to be sure you knew that. No, really what that was leading up to is that I fixed my broken internets all by myself. (Actually that's not quite true. Sis helped but I was going to do it anyway before she even said that. So I win.)
This post seems oddly boring. No pictures. No fun sayings. No quotes. No music. Just words. I apologize for not being entertaining. For those of you (No I'm not hinting at any one person.) who only read picture books, this post is obviously not for you.
My phone (It's not really a phone.) is nearly dead. Not as in "it's dying please help it!", but more along the lines of it's running out of power.
My lower back is seriously messed up.
One time when I was between the ages of 10 and 14 I was jumping on the trampoline and I decided it would be a good idea for me to jump off of the trampoline. From the very middle. I didn't quite make it. I landed on the metal bar with my tail bone. I discovered I couldn't breathe. I discovered that I couldn't move without considerable pain. I also discovered that probably wasn't such a good idea...
I laid on my belly on the couch for about three days in wretched pain and every time I moved my breath would catch. Then I was all better. (Probably not really, but I was young and reckless.)
Fast-forward several years. I was in a car crash. Very few injuries. A sore thumb, a sore neck, that was all. We decided to go to the chiropractor. (Aren't you proud of me? I spelled that word right the first time!) He decided to do some x-rays to see what he needed to fix. He told us that the third? vertebrae in my neck was knocked to the side and would need to be worked back into place. All well and good up to this point. He then proceeded to tell us that three of my lowest vertebrae were so crunched and fused together that it was one of the worst he had seen. And he couldn't do much to fix it because it wouldn't be covered with the insurance we had. So he did the best he could until I left. My back was slightly better for about two months.
I am now to the point where I can't relax my lower back without severe pain and absolutely no breathing at all. The point of this long, rambling, senseless couple of paragraphs is that my lower back is really messed up. And it hurts.
I've been babysitting! I babysat on Wednesday and on Thursday. I adore babysitting. Especially when the kids are some of the cutest and most well-behaved kids I know.
I really do love babysitting. But if one of the children I was babysitting said that word with that inflection one more time... I was going to seriously burst out laughing at the most inopportune time. "Whatever" is the number one cutest exclamation ever coming from a six year old.
Playing Dutch Blitz and someone lays a card where you were going to lay a card... "Whatever!"
Sister does something incredibly silly (And cute)... "Whatever!"
Brother sits on your foot on the hammock... "Whatever!"
And not like the roll your eyes "whatever", or even the kind of mean and nasty "whatever". Just the cutest and most innocent "Whatever!" you can think of.
Ouch. I just busted my lip.
It's like one in the morning... My invigoration is gone. My eyelids are incredibly attracted to one another. I think I'll go to bed.

(P.S. My back hurts.)

Me, in a nutshell

Artist: Little Big Town

Song: Boondocks

Album: The Road to Here

I feel no shame
I'm proud of where I came from
I was born and raised in the boondocks
One thing I know
No matter where I go
I keep my heart and soul in the boondocks

And I can feel
That muddy water running through my veins
And I can hear that lullaby of a midnight train
It sings to me and it sounds familiar


And I can taste
That honeysuckle and it's still so sweet
When it grows wild
On the banks down at old camp creek
Yeah, and it calls to me like a warm wind blowing


It's where I learned about living
It's where I learned about love
It's where I learned about working hard
And having a little was just enough

It's where I learned about Jesus
And knowing where I stand
You can take it or leave it, this is me
This is who I am

Give me a tin roof
A front porch and a gravel road
And that's home to me
It feels like home to me


I keep my heart and soul in the boondocks

You get a line, I'll get a pole
We'll go fishing in the crawfish hole
Five-card poker on a Saturday night
Church on Sunday morning

You get a line, I'll get a pole
We'll go fishing in the crawfish hole
(Down in the boondocks)
Five-card poker on a Saturday night
Church on Sunday morning

Say a little prayer for me

Revival in the Church

Whew, I have a feeling this will be a long one... We have already had three services of our revival Friday night, Saturday night and Sunday morning, I will attempt a brief summery of each one. Or whatever popped out at me and I happen to remember... :)

The music leader is one Marcus Whitworth, he is amazing by the way! Our evangelist is one Rev. Larry Hunter, who is also amazing!

Friday evening I didn't take many notes but I will put what I remember. The text was Luke 15:1-32 paying special attention to verses 8-10.
The candle in this passage represents the Holy Spirit.
Faith ^ without works is dead, but your works alone cannot get you into Heaven.
The broom she uses represents works.
And here is a quote that really stuck out to me: "I might be a cracked vessel, but if I have the Holy Spirit, the Lord can shine through the cracks!"

Saturday evening Rev. Larry was going so fast all I got were a bunch of quotes... So this'll be eclectic.
Enthusiasm with Vision becomes FUN!!
Sometimes the "curses" of this life become blessings.
Sometimes the Church goes through a "Sifting of the Saints".
When you become usable God will use you.
God made us, so He is our manufacturer, right? Well, The Manufacturer has made a users manual for His creation! It's called the BIBLE!!
God allows us to be sifted.
Where do good people run when they are being sifted by the world and the devil? To GOD!!
When you're being sifted you don't have to jump the pews with joy, just HOLD STEADY! Stay in the middle of the straight and narrow!
In every problem you've ever had or ever will have, there are always five loaves and two fishes.
All we go through will be worth it all, but also for eternity.
There's nothing worse than missing out on Heaven. Because it will be for eternity.
And eternity is a long time... Let me try to tell you how long.
If you had a little sparrow take a grain of sand from here to the moon until you had all of the Earth on the moon, eternity will have just barely begun.
If you had a steel ball as big as the Earth and had a regular house fly walk around the middle of it until the ball was worn into two pieces, eternity would have just barely begun.

Sunday morning.
Bro. Marcus totally blew a Shofar this morning! How awesome is that?!?!
Three reasons the sin problem can be absolved:
1.The very nature of God.
2. The very nature of man.
3. The very nature of sin.
The real problem is man's resistance!
Ten excuses of man:
1. "I HAFTA sin!"
You don't have to sin anymore, Jesus paid the price, you are no longer bound by the chains of sin.
2. They rationalize the existence of Heaven and Hell.
He has gone to prepare a place for us in Heaven, He doesn't want us to go to Hell.
3. "I'm just too bad!", or "I've gone too far!"
God's grace is more than adequate to cleanse even the worst stain.
4. "I'ts just my nature/personality!"
God can change your personality and suppress your inherent sin nature.
5. "I'm not ready yet." I want to live my way for just a little longer.
The end is coming, Jesus will return soon.
6. "I can't live it, I just can't live it!"
God can control your sinful nature so you can live it!
7. "It costs too much to go with God"
It will be worth it all in the end, so sell out and go with God.
8. "I've got plenty of time."
God is calling out and you don't have much time.
9. "I think I'm alright."
Thinking is not enough, you need to know that you know that you know that you know!

And by the way, I am really loving the music this weekend!

I borrowed this (with permission) from my best friend Brit...

Mad=Crazy, not angry...

Dear Readers, (Non-Madders)
Us mad people like to hit things... It gives us a mad rush. If you are not mad then you do not understand what I'm talking about. You would most likely look down on me because I'm really mad. Its hard being mad, we have to mold ourselves to look like you so that you won't burn us at the stake... You Non-Madders who think you're so smart believe we mad people don't know we're mad. I, a very mad person, have news for you... We know. we know that eating dog food is not the "norm". We know it and we like it very much.
So please leave us to our hitting things, our talking to ourselves, our rolling eyes, our drooling, and our eating of dog food.
If we are not hitting you or breaking your Non-Madder laws, please look the other way and mind your own beeswax.
Thank you for your understanding,
Your mad friend...

Boyfriends… and getting married.

Wednesday at Church I was talking to my bff Britt and I saw a fairy ring out in the yard, so I was like “Oh look, a fairy ring!” And Britt was all “Okay, you’re gonna hafta explain that to me ‘cuz I have no idea what you’re talkin’ about…” (Actually, she probably didn’t use that many contractions.) So I explained what a fairy ring was and she jumped in it and said “I wish I had a cute Christian boyfriend!” with a very odd scrunched up face. So I jumped in and said “Ooh, me too!”

Last class… very bittersweet…

I am in love with and want to marry the printer/fax machine at my mom’s work. It is AMAZING!! And, after we get married, we can adopt the label printer out of her desk drawer…

Yum, and other things...

I made some yummy chicken and dumplings for supper today... I think they were the best dumplings I've made in a really long time.
Life goes by fast... I noticed this recently:
It feels like just a little while ago that I started teaching a class on wednesday nights, and now this wednesday is my last class.
I'm 17!! I really can't believe that...
My cousin is getting her drivers license soon... CRAZY!

I'm starting an exercise program thing, something that will be good for both the dogs and for me. Here's hoping I stick to it. :)

I recently discovered the "playlist" option on youtube... My playlist already has more than fifty songs on it. And its a very eclectic collection... Katy Perry, Savage Garden, Josh Turner, Lady Antebellum, Snow Patrol, Tim Mcgraw, The Band Perry, Mike Tompkins and many more! And I'm starting a Christian Collection, which will include: Acappella, Guy Penrod, Bill and Gloria Gaither, and lots of others that my brain refuses to think of right now... :)

My Mudder...

So I heard today was like, a day for mom's or something? Well, if it is, I want to dedicate this post to my mum.

"Hey mom?"
"I just wanted to thank you."
"What for?"
"For being my mom."
"Um, thanks?"
"Well, I saw... (Insert random crazy thing I happened to see that day.) and I am just so glad you're my mom and I wasn't raised like that."

True story. This has happened so many times that I can't even count them.

Kiddens, Teaching a class and MESSY animals...

I had four boys in my class tonight... the most I've had in more than a month... My superior teacher lady says the boys misbehave during worship time... I haven't had a problem with them yet. They obey me "to a T", and oh, my goodness!!! I am SO proud of them! They ALL have the Bible verse memorized and this is only the second night we've had this one. (Romans 10:9, if anyone is interested.)

When we got home from Church tonight my dumb (Bless her lil' ol' heart.) dog had, umm... urinated... on the carpet. Wonderful thing to come home to, huh?

Today, I became an Aunt X3! My third nephew, how cool is that?!?!?
His name is Cedric Azariah, and he was 7 pounds 4 ounces, and he was born at about 4:03.

I have one of the most adorable kittens in the world in my lap at the moment...

The Office... Ch.2


They all come into work, against their better judgment.
There were no smiles, not really...

The fake smiles pasted on their faces gave them away...
They were scared, frightened out of their minds.

They all believed the lie, they even perpetuated the lie, the multiple lies, the endless lies.

As they went about their business, once again felling very relieved that my Mum came in to work today, they noticed something...
The environment of fear and guilt had escalated since Monday...

My mom asks for time off, this weekend...
Everyone is starting to dislike my mom, but it's their fault.
They won't tell her, no one will tell her!!

As they wondered around, attempting to do their assigned duties, they knew...
They knew, that when the weekend came, the lies...
Oh, the lies would begin the short trip off the pier into the bottomless ocean of truth.

(Stay tuned for more...)

The Office... Ch.1


There's something going on at the office...
No one will admit it, but its creeping slowly and surely.
They all go about their business like nothings wrong.

The short looks when they think nobodies looking,
The reticence of them, quiet and collected,
No one really acts like that...

They all sigh when my mum's around,
She scares off the impending doom.
They sigh with relief, then turn, so she doesn't see them.

She doesn't know...
They know she doesn't know, yet they don't tell her.
Why? Why? WHY?!?!?
Why don't they tell her?!?!?
She could save them, she sends them away, but if she knew, if only she knew...

As each employee leaves the office, they heave a sigh...
Finally, away, home, safety!
They relax as they walk to the car...
Digging in their purse for their keys, head bent, hands full...

They hear a noise, and jerk their head up...
They look, nothing.
They look again, once more, nothing.

They search frantically for the car keys...
They look once more...
They see a shimmery reflection...
They quickly get in the car, start it, and leave...

(No, not the office you're thinking of.)
(This was brought on by me volunteering at my mom's work. No, her fellow employees don't really act like this.)
