Still going....

If you haven't figured it out yet, life for me is pretty crazy. It's really not even a balancing act. I sleep and work for the most part. I worked a night shift last night and got off about 0730 this morning. I was at the candy store by 1000. It wouldn't have been so bad if I hadn't fought with psych patients trying to communicate to other life forms in outer space for what seemed like most of the night. If it isn't one having delusional thoughts its another. I think one of the reasons I am enjoying mental health so much is because, like EMS, you never know what to expect. After I got off from the candy store tonight I went to the A Taste of Home cooking school. That was fun. I went with my old boss and afterwords we went to Mitchell's Truck Stop for breakfast. A crazy man talked to me for about an hour...or so it felt like an hour. I am beggining to think that there are a ton of people in this area who need to be in a psych facility. Before its over I will be convinced that everyone needs to be in a psych facility! That's my thought process for the day. Sleep good. I know I will.

Logan Utah

So, Charity is getting ready to fly home to TN tomorrow. I didn't want her to have to take a shuttle and I wanted to spend a little time with her before she left for home. I got both wishes when I decided to drive her down to Logan today. I must confess I had another motive that was selfish. I wanted to see the Logan Temple. I remember the first time I even saw a picture of the Logan Temple. I was in Young Women's and we were learning about temple marriage and of its importance.

The teacher brought mini pictures of all the temples around the world and let us pick the one we would like to be married in. In turn she let us take the picture of that temple home with us. I was in awe when I saw the picture of the Logan Temple. Something about it captivated me. I even scrapbooked my picture and wrote a caption under it that it would be the temple I would be married in. I had almost put that dream away until I saw it again today. Once again it captivated me. I fell in love with that temple all over again. I was sad that it was a Monday and the temple was closed. I will have to go again when it is open so I can go inside and more fully appreciate it. I don't know what it is about that temple in particular that grabs my attention but I do know that I want to always be worthy to enter such beautiful and breathtaking buildings. They are truly houses of our Lord and King!

I thought this would be a funny pic and all with me frowning a pointing out that there is still no ring on my left hand.

Sunshine and Windy Days

Could it be, is it even possible? Yes it is! The weather is actually nice in Idaho! Today has been the first, well what I'd consider the first, warm day of the year. It is perfect. The temperture is 66 degrees and the wind is blowing.

I went to church and was pleasantly surprised at the fact that I did not need a coat. The only problem is that the wind blowing doesn't go so well with girls wearing dresses. You see, you must be cautious to make sure your dress doesn't blow over your head. Those who have lived where the wind blows know these facts. After church, Charity and I rode our bicycles around the neighborhood. That was especially nice. Charity came inside and since I hadn't had enough of the sunshine I took Seth on a bike ride as well. It feels like forever since the since my skin has felt the sun rays hit it. I must confess that I love the Vitamin D. I feel so rejuvinated. Did I spell that right. Yeah, so maybe this site needs a spell check on everything posted. That is my spill for the day. I hope that we have many more days like this over the summer and that it doesn't snow here again for at least another seven months!

If I could change the world

If I could change the world...
The roads would never ice over.
People would be more open minded.
You could eat as much junk food as you'd like and never gain a pound.
There would be true equality among everyone.
We'd still have troubles but we'd be able to see all the positive things that come from them, even if the only thing we gained was the knowledge of what happiness verses sorrow is.
No girl would ever have to know what it is to have a broken heart.
Everyone would smile.
Every child would have good parents and no one would ever be abused in any form or fashion. Mothers would nourish their children and fathers would provide in every family.
No one would have to fight demeans from mental disorders.
Every time you felt the wind on your face or the sun shine on your skin you would appreciate it instead of wishing the wind wouldn't blow because you just spent an hour on your hair.
We could always smell wonderful things like freshly baked cookies, honeysuckle, or a bouquet of flowers and never loose appreciation for it.
More people would have positive outlooks on things and no one would be depressed.
Everyone who has ever felt alone whould know that they are not alone and be able to feel that unconditional love that someone, somewhere has for them.
Education would be offered to everyone in the world and it would be placed at an higher importance.
College would be free.
Every woman who has ever wanted to be a mother could be and have a great family. I hate how some women have children and neglect them while others have stable homes and try for years to have children or adopt and can't.
When it rains/snow we would stop and just soak in the beauty of it all and be grateful that we have the needed moisture for survival.

These are just a few spur of the moment thoughts. I am curious what you guys would do if you could change the world. I am sure that some of my thoughts could have a huge negative outcome but I like to think that none of them would. I really appreciate the beautiful world we live in and I am enjoying everything coming to life this spring. It is nice.

I'm Officially Upset!

So I bought an airline ticket tonight for me to fly home to TN and visit! I am super psyched about my trip. Amy and Mike decided to let Seth tag along. I am even more excited about this concept. So I try to book him a ticket on priceline and they told me that I couldn't add him on because that would be changing my ticket! I can't add him on by himself because he is a minor. I am so mad. So I have been on hold with the airline I am flying through for about 30 minutes. Talk about being mad! The results: I got a hold of Unitied Airlines and they told me to just book Seth as an adult and then call them and tell them he was a minor traveling with me. I am so glad that the lady on the phone was able to help me out! This whole concept is still super upsetting to me but at least it has a happy ending....Well I guess we will see about happy after I finish flying with a four year old.

Nails are officially Painted

Yesterday I was in a shopping mood. I went to Wal Mart to simply pic up the groceries needed to make hamburgers for dinner but it turned into a mini excursion. After I finished with groceries I decided that I needed some shampoo and conditioner. No biggy there. Then as I was passing past cosmetics I decided to browse to see if there were any good deals on mascara or eye liner...I'm almost out and was suddenly distracted when I discovered all the beautiful nail polish colors. Did you know that they are making nail poslish sticks now? You don't even have to dip the brush in the polish. You simply just push a button and the polish dispenses as needed. I though that these were pretty cool but they were like seven dollars a peice. I almost bought one...but then I thought, "Why buy one expensive one when I can buy three cheap ones?" So I settled for a orange, pink, and red nail polish!

I got home and felt the need to immediantly paint my nails. You see, it has been a super long time since I have painted my nails. I disposed of all my nail polished and nail polish remover about a year or so ago and I haven't messed with the stuff since. I went on this huge girl kick this week. I got my hair cut about a week or so ago (I love the new cut) and I am trying to do my make up and hair more often. Why not paint my nails too? I am usually so discouraged with nail paint because I am too impatient for it to dry and mess it up immediantly. This time my finger nails and toe nails were both painted successfully. I feel like I should get a ton more of grooming supplies. So I know this is my secong blog in one day but I just wanted to write about this exciting transformation. I am going to start looking like a rockstar at all times!

Leo's Place

So I am really new at this whole blog thing and I really don't know what to say. Today has been a pretty crazy day. I started out pretty...well let's just say I was in a grumpy mood. I woke up to go to work and found out that I didn't have to work so I got to go home. I was really excited about that because my older sister has been in town for a week now and I haven't had a day off since she has been here. Another perk was that I got to come home and go right back to bed. The great thing about that is that you wake up and realize that your makeup is already done and your hair just needs a quick fix. I watched a few more episodes of my favorite t.v. series, The Office, before the family headed off to Leo's Place. Leo's place is like a Chuck-E-Cheese want to be place. I had fun playing the games. The girls, well most of the girls, all got slap bracelets. The more courageouse teenage girls even got some boys phone numbers! We played laser tag, Amy sat out with Syndey, and it was a blast! Best fifteen minute workout of my life. It really wore me out! That's been my day thus far. I look forward writing more at a later time. As for now that is my life. This was actually an exciting day for me also. I enjoy my lameness though. I find it humorous a lot and hope you will too!
