Pleasant surprise

Well as most of you know my brother Chad and his family are moving to Japan with the Air Force and last Thursday I was pleasantly surprised when I got a call from my Brother and he said their plane was being diverted to Anchorage and that meant I got to hang out with them. I was so excited. Then the next day their plane didn't leave until 2pm and I don't work on Fridays so we went to Target and the mall and had lunch. I had so much fun. I really enjoyed the time we got to spend together because I won't be seeing them til next September when the boys turn 8 and 12. I miss you much and love you more. It was a pleasant surprise that made my weekend!

Okay I have officially started school on the weekends. So far I as I quote "I know you can feel overwhelmed, and I know you can fell underwhelmed but can you ever just feel whelmed?" I think I feel all of the above. I am enjoying classes and I am meeting new friends. I am actually learning more about the computer which I am excited and all. Things are going great as I try to hit the books and learn something new. Wish me luck.

What to do?

Okay girls, I need some advice. For those who ever were single in their life think back when you got depressed because you didn't have a date on Friday and there were really no "guys" to date you. When you got in those depressed state of mind what did you do to get out of them? I am getting so tired of being single and doing life by my self I have no idea what to do. I am depressed at least for the moment and I am ready to give up I don't want to do single life any more. I have no idea how to get out of this slump. I read the scriptures and pray and do all the ABC's of the Gospel that are supposed to make you happy but it is not helping. I have even got blessings from friends and I have even asked other single sisters what they do. I am at a lost and hope I can get out of this downward cycle I seem to be in every once in awhile. I just want to be happy.

What are you passoinate about?

Okay, I was given some homework from a friend of mine about what motivates us to change. He told me I should find out what I am passionate about in life. So I have been thinking and I really don't know exactly what I am passionate about besides the moon....and how does that make you change? So I figured I would ask those who read my blog what they are passionate about and that would jog my short term memory into remembering what I am passionate about.

This whole thing about change has been on my mind for a bit. Have you ever been in the same situation over and over and over again and you end up with the same conclusion? Well that is my life in general. I am tired of being in the same situation over and over and over again so I need to change my conclusion and the only way to do that is to do something differently. So in order to do that I have to change in reaction to life and change the situation even if it very difficult to do. I must try and try again till I get the result I want. Wish me luck! And thank you for sharing with me what you are passionate about!

Okay I went to Time Out for Women. I loved it. I was spiritually filled and was over flowing with the spirit. I really enjoyed spending time with other women listening to speakers such as Brad Wilcox, Sherry Dew, and many more. We were able to listen to the music and testimony of Hillary Weeks. I would encourage all women to go if T.O.F.W. is offered near where you live. It was very powerful and uplifting. I cannot say enough just go!

I am sick

Okay I am sick of being sick. I got sick two weeks ago. The whole head cold but I can't afford to miss work cuz I don't have any sick leave. So I went home got a blessing and went to bed. I was feeling lots better. I then went down to Soldotna for Labor Day weekend and I got sick again. With ears, nose and throat thing going on. So I went to Freddy's to pick up some medicine. Well I was going to ask the pharmacist there what they would recommend taking. So I was waiting and there was this person that walked up to the counter where a worker was station just about to take me the customer but they were there just socializing so my patience ran thin and I left realizing that we have a pharmacist in our family. Ali, she knows everything about what to take when one gets sick. So I called and to my rescue I was able to get what I needed. Thank you Ali. So you would think it is all over. When I went back to work and opened the sudafed there was a pill that was already out of the package so I had to go back and ex-change the sudafed. Either way I do feel a lot better.

Bad hair day

Hello, Well I couldn't wait much longer to get my hair cut cuz I my hair was getting too long to do anything with. So I decided to go to Trend Setter's (a hair cutting school) because I didn't have a lot of money to spend. So I told them how I wanted my hair cut and I was going to get some highlights cuz I wanted to hide my gray hairs. So what went wrong? You might say by the time I was done I looked like a leopard to say the least. I was so shocked I couldn't even tell them. So by the time I got home I walked in and started crying. I hated my new leopard look. I could handle the short hair cuz I know it will grow out. So my friend Julie called and I told her of my hair troubles. She said come on over and we will figure it out. I was ready to shave my hair again to start all over. She told me to call them and see what my options were. So I did Julie even came with me for moral support (thanx Julie) Well I ended up having them color all my hair back to my natural color and I received my money back for the color. I was happy not so much with the hair cut but that they colored it back and I don't look like a leopard anymore.

So now I am just waiting for my hair to grow out and hopefully that won't take all that long. I am not sure if I will go there again but it is the cheapest place to get hair cut and highlights or color. I will definitely bring in a picture next time if I go back. So my bad hair day turned out to be okay. I went to dinner with my room ates and that cheered me up. Thank you!!!!!!

I am being punished

So I want to apologize for my last blog I think I am getting punished I woke up today with a total head cold. Ears draining, nose draining in the back of my throat etc. Total head cold. So I got up and went to work slept for an hour and a half and still felt like crap. So I told work I need to go home and get better. They let me (thank you). So I came home called my Home Teachers to get a blessing and then went to bed. I was so cold and I put on those soft so soft socks and had a Mexican blanket, a soft so soft blanket and a down comforter and I was still freezing. I was finally able to fall asleep. My home teachers came over at 5:30 to give me a blessing. I am now feeling a lot better. I will get plenty of sleep tonight and have faith that I will be able to go to work tomorrow. I will try not to be so

Jealous of me.....

Okay, everyone not living in Alaska around October is way jealous of those who do. Yes we get what is called a Permanent Fund each October. This year we hear it is to be 2 grand. Then to top it off this year our Governor Sarah Palin is giving Alaska residents a stipend of 12 hundred dollars to help off set our high energy bills. So I am stoked. Wouldn't you be? You are jealous!!!! I get about three grand to do with what I want....oh what girls can buy lol. Either way I will be responsible and purchase a camera since I lost the last one then I will split the rest in half and put on half towards my bills and then the rest I will put in my savings to live on in case of an emergency...... you never know when that will happen hopefully never.


So, I have been spending all this time trying to get my transcripts together so I can meet with Wayland Baptist to get my Bachelors in Human Services. Let me tell you I can't handle dealing with stupid people. UAA was the worst and I live in Anchorage. They offer anything on-line it is like they are replacing customer service with the computer. So I ended up physically going to UAA to ask for my transcripts. So I ordered them around the same time I ordered two from Utah and one from California. So UAA came 2nd to last. Go figure the closest takes the longest.

So I have a meeting Weds. morning to meet with an academic advisor. I am way excited. They said I could start classes this month like in two days but as you know I don't like to be rushed in things so I declined to start in two days and will meet with them to find out how long it will take for me to get what I want. (as if I haven't waited long enough) I also want to know how much it will cost me cuz I can't afford to go unless I get Financial Aide all the way. So wish me luck!!!! I will need it.

I am way scared to go back to school. My short term memory never connects long enough for me to remember what the teacher is saying more or less to study and retain. Any advice for retaining what I read and or listen to? I will need prayers. Thanx ahead of time.

Okay I am not getting married but yesterday as I was taking breaks between cleaning I was watching movies....well for some odd reason I was inspired on how I want my wedding reception to be. I figured I would share and see if you had anything to offer.... first off it won't be in a church cuz I want lighted candles.. I want a large full moon hanging from the ceiling illuminated that really looks like a moon. I want stars ( x-mas lights) with black back ground so we can be inside but feel like we are outside. I want trees, rocks, and waterfalls surrounding the edges as if we were in the middle of Alaska. For table clothes I want cobalt blue and then a shear silver lining over , I am not sure about the center pieces, any suggestions?, but they will have candles. For some reason I am getting very excited about this new insight I received. I have always wanted to get married on the moon so why not bring the moon to my wedding....... I CAN'T WAIT!


Okay, Yesterday (sat) I had a wild hair where I went on a cleaning spree. Go figure if I ever get that way when I am visiting your home just let me clean. It is therapeutic for me on many levels. I cleaned the kitchen, both bathrooms, vacuumed and cleaned my room, at the end of the day I wanted to take a bath to relax all the muscles I used to clean and go figure I couldn't get the stopper to work to stop the water from going down the drain. I was sad cuz I love taking baths! But I now can feel the spirit cuz my home is clean yippeee!

The Mummy

with humor Okay, I went to see the movie The Mummy. I loved it. It had action and it was hilarious!!! I almost peed my pants. There were some funny lines which due to my short term memory lost I can't remember them at all but it was worth the time and money. If you liked the other Mummy movies you will like this one. I thought the others were funny the only thing I wish they did actually two things I wish they did was... first use the same wife in all of them.... second they needed to use the line and I quote "Not another mummy I hate mummies" Brendan Frasier. They didn't use it in this movie but used that quote in the other two go figure they can't stay consistently. Go see it.....
