Howdy. We took some more pictures of our house on Friday. I added them to my photo album. Just click up there and you can see all of them to date. It's really coming along! How exciting!
I am thinking about building a sand volleyball court. Fun! I want to have a party out there on May 15th to celebrate my finally graduating (and hopefully being done with school for a while). It's going to be a camp out and super fun.
I saw Jennifer's house last night. It was so pretty. And Big! All these people I know have these huge houses and I don't even have A house yet. I am so far behind everyone else my age. Which again is me comparing myself to everyone else. And that's a joy buster (from our women's retreat message). I need to stop doing that. I am doing what I can for now. I will be ready to move into the real world soon enough. For now, I will enjoy having fun and not being an adult. I will rebel against that for a while!! I can't wait for my party! :)
Hope you guys like the pictures. I slipped a cool one in there. Guess which one it is ;)

This is the gang at Janie's birthday party at Hardrock. To all those who didn't go... you missed a fun night!

My favorite song of the moment is Ginny Owens "If you want me to". I think it's great. I don't know how to get it on here, so I will just suggest it to everyone. Or I can email it to ya.
I am so frustrated with class. *Warning: gripe area* We turned in our third tape tonight and got our feedback from our second tape also tonight. On my feedback she is saying what I need to do with my third tape. Ok... if I turned it in tonight, how could I have done what she asked? Grr. AND... I thought I did so good on the second tape. I was so proud and just knew that I would make a really good score (perhaps an A?!?). But no. I got even lower than my first tape. How is that possible? It doesn't even make sense. So now I get to go in for short periods of time each day to interview people so that I can have a second session with them to tape. This will be for my last tape. I probably failed tape number 3. It ended early and I didn't give homework or close it very good at all. Ugh. I want to be done.
Ok. Done with that. I don't feel better, but at least everyone will know why I'm grumpy :)
I get to go see Taking Lives with my friend Becky tomorrow. Woohoo. Something fun and relaxing. Then it's to granny's for her birthday party. I hope we play pin the tail on the donkey. Then off to Jennifer Copeland's house with Travis for a housewarming party. Fun times. I hope everyone has a fun weekend like me!
Little Bam got a shave and a bath. She is the cutest dog I have ever seen. I just want to squeeze her.
I saw Nightmare on Elm Street for the first time the other night. I never watched them as a child. I was too scared that I would never be able to sleep. It wasn't so bad. There are scarier movies now adays. I'm sure that was the worst back in the days of old. The scariest movie for me is probably Darkness Falls. I slept in the living room with the light on for 3 days. I was house sitting that week. The second would be Mothman Prophecies. I remember holding Helen in the theatre and then not sleeping that night. I was house sitting that week too. I always see scary movies when I'm house sitting. What is your scariest movie?

I found my pimp name. What's yours? You will have to excuse the language on the site... apparently playas only talk in bad words. :)
On another note, I went to hear a speaker in Corsicana tonight. Dr. James Sutton talked about raising kids to the elementary school parents and teachers. I think it was great! I hope those parents paid attention. Kids today have it tough. They need their parents. They need to feel that love and support to make it through the day with all the crazy things that go on. Dr. Sutton did a great job. I think all parents should listen to him or read his book or something. I also won a $50 gift certificate to Wal Mart while I was there! Woo hoo. I don't even go to the school and I won! :)
Have I mentioned I finished the bathroom? Maybe I will take pics. I'm so proud. (tear)
Cory is back in chemo today. I need to get up there to visit him. The bad thing is, I procrastinated on my tape and tape critique so much I have to get those done before class tomorrow. I am making my tape today and can hopefully spend the 3 hours it takes to do the extra work tonight. That way I can visit him before class tomorrow. He is in there for 5 days this round.

I just got back from our women's retreat. It was so much fun. We learned about JOY. I got some great ideas and we had a great speaker. I am going to bring more joy in my life. Spiritual joy. Big plans.
We were told that we are not supposed to compare ourselves to others. This is a big joy buster. I think that is one of my problems. I am always comparing myself to others. I need to stop doing that. Something for me to work on.
We had our second softball game last night. We lost again. We only had 4 guys show up. I even had Travis sub for us last night. He almost had to play in his docs before another teammember loaned him some cleats. I think if we had everyone out there and started playing as a team that we could start winning! We also need to practice our batting. I know I need to! I need to head to a batting cage this week or next.
I'm starting on my room this week. I am moving my bed out (it broke) and bringing the futon in. So I will be sleeping on a futon until we move. Fun!

Now I'm off to have some fun. :)
Have a great weekend everyone!
Today I leave for the women's retreat. I am glad it's finally here. I want to relax and learn about JOY. (that's our theme for the week). I can't remember our bible verse right now, but I am sure I will remember it after! I can't wait.
I also finished the bathtub and shower. It's looks so good. I might be getting a bit obsessed with the cleaning. I don't want anyone to take a shower now or use the sink or the toilet (we do not have the doodie protection on ours now) or walk on the floor. I have to go in and clean it every day to keep it pretty. Any dirt I see is attacked with the Magic Sponge. I love that thing. I get to paint the door and floorboards today and then I will be DONE with the bathroom. (except for all the obsessive cleaning I will continue to do) Party in the bathroom! Who wants to come and admire my work :)

Last night we saw the Dallas Orchestra sing Elijah. It was like a Bible Study :) It was really impressive. And the Myerson is really neat looking.
I think I might finish the bathroom today! I'm excited. I didn't any sub jobs for some reason. It's a catch-22. I want to work so I have money, but I hate subbing so I am glad when I don't get called. I never know how to feel. Yesterday was nice. I subbed for Amanda's dance class and we just watched Moulin Rouge. It was fun. That is the first time I have subbed where they didn't have work. That's how it should be with a sub!! She knows how to do it :)
We got half a fence delivered to the land. Woo hoo. Now we just have to put it up. Then I can start getting dogs. I want lots of them!! I love dogs. We also got our toilets delivered. They are good ones. They have silent flush, a soft seat (meaning it won't slam down) and a protector so the doodie won't stick to it! That is awesome!

How do closets acquire so much dust? I have gone to cleaning out one of them and have had allergies ever since. I need to poke around there with the vaccuum and fix it. I don't understand where dust comes from and why I have so much of it.
I saw the Secret Window with John the other day. I was so excited, thinking it would be really great. Turns out it wasn't. It wrapped it up way to fast and it was scary freaky like I thought it would be. Kinda boring, really.
I have been fascianted with DID lately. For those of you who are not Counselors, or familiar with the DSM IV, that is Dissociative Identity Disorder (aka Multiple Personalities). I am reading a book on it right now about a lady who tortured, stabbed, and stalked herself. It's fascinating. We are just getting to the counseling sessions and going to find out why. I can't wait!
I get to go see my Becky perform at the Myerson. She is in the Dallas Symphony Chior (or Orchestra - something like that). It will be fun. I haven't seen her in probably a year and a half! Woo hoo.
Well, lately I have been so tired. I have a 3 page list and am running around like a crazy. I did go to Office Depot and get so many things for free with a mail in rebate. I just have to fill them out and mail them in. It was fun! I did a lot of shopping that day, but spent just a little money! Gotta love that. :)

I have been cleaning out my closet. I found pictures and notes from back when I was in 7th grade! My gosh. And cabbage patch kids and Strawberry Shortcakes. I can't believe it! As I read through some of my notes, I realized that I get mad too easy. I'm not sure why. I think it has something to do with my insecurity and wanting people to like me. If I think that they don't or that they don't want to be with me or have wronged me in any way, I get upset. Well, everyone has their issues, right? :)
We play our second game tonight. I hope it isn't rained out. We might even have 5 whole girls show up to play! I hope so. I would really like to play without being all stressed out about having a team together. Any girls around Rowlett wanna play?

Helen and I went to see Cory last night at the hospital. He seemed to cheer right up. We talked about doodie most of the night. It was fun.
Rascal Flatts is playing this weekend in Waco. I want to go! I'm sure I will end up cleaning out my closet (but not like Eminem) I am also printing off cd labels for all the cds I have made the past few days. Fun.
Hope everyone has a great weekend.
You know what else I wonder... what it feels like to be shot.
I'm ready for baseball season to be open!!

You're The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy!
by Douglas Adams
Considered by many to be one of the funniest people around, you are
quite an entertainer. You've also traveled to the far reaches of what you deem possible,
often confused and unsure of yourself. Life continues to jostle you around like a marble,
but it's shown you so much of the world that you don't care. Wacky adventures continue to
lie ahead. Your favorite number is 42.
Take the Book Quiz
at the Blue Pyramid.
We lost our first softball game yesterday. Big time! 18-1. But, that happens when none of the girls show up to play. We have a whole 4 girls on our roster. We have to have 5 girls to play. Anybody want to join a good softball team. We are THE GOOD TEAM. It will be fun. We need a few more girls to sign up. Soon. I enlisted an old friend from high school that was there watching her husband play (poor girl, didn't know that would happen when she came to say hi)
We saw Shane & Shane in concert on Saturday. They also had Shaun (forget last name) and Ginny Owens. It was a great concert. I need to buy some cds now! :)
Does anybody ever wonder how many people choke on their food while driving. I wonder how many accidents are from people choking on food. Probably not many, but I bet it has happened. Especially since everyone eats on the run nowadays. Just weird stuff to wonder about.

Jessica Simpson is coming to Dallas! I love her. I did just hear that when she went to MA that there was a riot thing and they had to cancel it. I hope we don't get crazy like they did. Us Texans, we know how to control ourselves :) I can't wait!! And I want her first season.
Felicity is coming out with the third season!! It won't be out until July 20th (I think) but they are finally releasing it. I think it is a total of 5 seasons. I hope they don't stop releasing it.
I just got back from Shreveport. I didnt win a whole lot. I love the Adams family machine. I put in 5 and won 30 before we had to leave. It was great. I think I just broke even. It was fun. I love going out there.
Happy Friday everyone!
1. ...your first grade teacher's name? She is the only teacher I can't remember. I hated her. She was mean.

4. ...your favorite breakfast cereal? Cocoa Crispees, Grape Nuts, Corn Pops, I love cereal
5. ...your favorite thing to do after school? Take a nap

Speaking of weddings... the comic strip Cathy is now engaged. I have read her books for years. Her struggles to meet a man, lose weight, and get herself organized. It was me! And now she is engaged?!? Just because the author is engaged/married, she has to make her comic strip the same way? I don't like it!! It's not right.
My job in getting ready to put the house on the market (one job of many) is to paint mine & Timmy's bathroom. Travis and I spent several hours taping it up so it will be ready to go later this week. Not so fun, but at least that part it done. It's exciting to know we are getting close.
I am also going to put new pictures up here as soon as Tim gives me the darned disc.
Our softball game was postponed. The first one of the season and it was rained out. Boo. Then again, I hadn't called anyone on the team yet, so I guess it was good. We would have had 4 people show up. Not enough for a team :)
