Lost TItle: Christmas 2011

Christmas was really great this year! Last year it was a little off for some reason but not this time! A few things were different on Christmas Eve because we usually go to service at our church and then to my grandpas house. But since Christmas was on a Sunday they didn't have Christmas Eve service since we would be going on Christmas. Also we went to my aunts house instead of my grandpas because he and my grandma K are having their kitchen remodeled. At first I was kind of mad that the tradition was broken but it turned out fine.

My aunt J and uncle P just bought a new house and it is HUGE! So there was plenty of room for everyone and the food was great as usual. I got some giftcards and money but the most fun was watching the two babies (15 and 6 months) open their mountains of gifts. It was adorable.

When we got home we went right to bed, I always get really excited for Christmas morning, no matter how old I get. I had a hard time sleeping because around that time I was dealing with some acid reflux. So I slept in kind of late form tossing and turning all night. Opening gifts with my parents and sisters was so nice. I received some very thoughtful gifts and enjoyed giving the ones I'd bought for them even more.

My older sister M and I had to teach Sunday school so we had to get ready for church a bit early. After church headed to my dad's side of the family, at my uncle and aunt M. I love hanging out with my family so much! I'm a lot closer to my dad's side so I felt super comfortable. We have a made gift exchange with them every year and I bound a book of short stories. I ended up with my sisters gift, a homemade calender which is now proudly displayed in my room :)

Later on my aunt had us do something new, we all wrote down what we predicted or hoped for in the new year, next Christmas we will read them aloud to see if any of them have come true. We weren't supposed to tell anyone what we wrote but since this is an anonymous blog I will divulge a bit of information. I wrote that I hoped everything would go well as far as going away to college.

We'll see!

Lost TItle: My Day of Living H-E Double Hockey Stick

December 16th was a day that will forever go down in history.

Ha, not really but it did stink! I. Got. The. Stomach. Flu.

Now you must understand that I am a MAJOR germ freak. I wash my hands all the time and purell is constant. But I somehow managed to catch it. Probably from babysitting, I have concluded.

I have never felt so terrible in my whole life. NO relief EVER. From 9:30 in the morning until 10:00 at night I was suffering. It was awful. I just kept thinking about people who feel 10 times worse from chemotherapy or other things.

So there it is. My worst day.

There Are Worse Things Then

Pimples on your chin 

Getting a D on your English exam


Having to eat at a unfavored restaurant before the formal dance


Getting woken up by the TV because your room is right below it


There Are Worse Things Then


Not getting any new clothes at the mall


Running into an enemy 

Uncomfortable seats at the movie theater


Thing the guy at the chicken place forgetting to put lettuce and tomatos on your sandwhich


And then realizing that you had someone elses and he actually got it right

These are all things that I caught myself complaining about today...but even if you multiply it all by ten I know that I have a great life compared to others and I thank God every night for blessing me with so many things that I don't deserve.

Lost TItles

I am a very bad blogger. Perhaps I am not even cut out for blogging in the first place. I keep thinking that I should just delete it and be done with it  but then I feel bad. I want to keep blogging but I'm not a very committed person at times.

A lot has gone on for the month and a half that I was on my blogging hiatus. There are a lot of things I could have written about, that's for sure. Here are a few lost titles (I saw this on another blog and thought it was a fun idea):


My Day of Living H-E Double Hockey Stick

Christmas 2011

Great Movies I Saw Over Break


My College Anxiety

2011 In Review


The Secret Life of My Best Friend


How My Patience Ran Out (Possibly Forever)


Exam Week Woes


Hello First Cold of 2012

SO...I think I'm going to get up to speed by covering all of these topics. I'm gonna keep on blogging! Thanks to everyone who reads, you are very patient.
