I'm leaving, on a jet plane...

(to the tune of John Denver's song...)

Well, our bags are packed, we're ready to go

We're sitting here in the airport

We're getting so excited we could cry

But we have to wait

It's not quite time

And so we'll sit

And have a good time

But really we just want to be on board

Cause we're going on a jet plane

We know when we'll back again

Oh babe we wish you were here

There are rides ahead

That are waiting for us

Like Splash and Soarin 

And food galore

And yet here we sit just waiting for this stupid plane

Come on, guys

Let us board the plane

We just want to get to Disneyland

Right now

Would be so nice

But really, we just want to go

Our patience isn't very great

Oh, please

Is it our turn??

I hope you all have a great week

I know I will :D

(boyfriend is supposed to do a post or two while I'm gone, so hopefully that will happen so you can hear from him)

Buried under a mountain of paper work...

I knew you were wondering, so I popped in to tell you something

I'm still not done with my paper

I think I'm too much of a perfectionist...

Back to my hiding place I go

Oh, and my new favorite Pandora station?

Solo Piano Radio

Soooo soothing and relaxing...

Okay, seriously

Anyone want to write a paper for me?

That's the kind of day it's been for me

Not an awful day, just a day that very much needed chocolate and caffeine

In other news, Boyfriend and I went and met the newest baby of the family today

My brother and his wife had a beautiful baby girl yesterday

Baby Olivia

And let's just say they are doing a good job at keeping the tradition of cute babies in our family


Have I told you recently how amazing Boyfriend is??

Here, I have an example for you:

He left me that on my desktop the other day

Isn't he adorable? :)

Alright, I have to go conquer a paper now that hopefully I'll be able to turn in tomorrow

It's due next week, but I'll be gone next week

My sister Becca and I are going to Disneyland!! 


We're going for her birthday

And I'm pretty much stoked

Okay, enough babbling and distracting myself

Off to the paper I go

It's chocolate!! How could I not know????

I protested homework tonight

Does that make me evil?

We had to read this document for my History class 

It was a famous sermon some dude gave

(I don't remember, and I'm too lazy to pull out the book....remember? protesting?)

I read it, and it went straight over my head

So far over my head it probably went into another galaxy

And when I got to class I just figured everyone else had a similar experience

I will tell you this, I did not walk away feeling like the smartest girl in the class

How is that every other person that spoke had something insightful to say?

And not me?

I'm not that dumb...

At least I didn't think so

It probably didn't help that I kept getting distracted by Boyfriend...and other things....

At work today, I was ringing up a customer with some chicken feed and she looked at me and said

"How are you?"

I don't think I sounded very convincing (maybe cause there was a sigh somewhere in there) when I said I was good and asked her how she was

She just laughed and said she had had a similar kind of day

As she was leaving she said "I hope you have a better day"

"I hope you do too ma'am"

"Just grin and bear it, that's what we do!!"

And it's not like I had had horrible customers all day, but the fact that someone asked me how I was, and meant it sincerely, brightened up my day a little bit

And then the very next customer was giving us a hard time because we didn't have Pepsi drinks available

We commiserated with each other for a little while about it, and as he left he said "I apologize that you have to work in these horrible circumstances"

That brightened up my day even more

Umm...did you know that today was National Chocolate Day???????????

I did not know this

I am deeply ashamed with myself

I did have chocolate ice cream today, but it doesn't really count towards that since I didn't even know it was  today....

So I think Boyfriend and I will have to celebrate tomorrow instead

But next year??

It's totally going on the calenders

Shut up

It's been over a week since I last posted?

Then why do I feel like it was just two days ago?



Have any of you tried out the new blogger layout yet??

I actually really like it

It feels...cleaner to me...

I've been writing tags all morning

We're growing some pansies for a special order and it's not one that we typically grow, so we don't have the tags

Hence I've been writing them

135 for each variety

And there are 3 varieties

Fun for me?

I really didn't have any purpose for this

Except to tell you that my week flew by and I have no clue where it went

I'll share a picture with you

My niece Sami is learning how to cook

She loves to be in the kitchen helping anyone...it doesn't really matter who

So the other day I came home from work and saw this:

I asked Mama Smurf what it was, and she told me it was chili

Sami had made it

Doesn't that just looks scrumptious?? 

You know when you write a word over and over it starts to look weird?


That is the one of the words I've been writing over and over again

And it's starting to look funny

Like the second 'e' doesn't belong





I had to look it up on the internet a few minutes ago just to make sure I was still writing it correctly

That the spelling of it hadn't all of the sudden changed since I started writing these tags

It hasn't, don't worry

It's still center

Okay, I'm going to stop rambling now and go finish my tags

My goal of the day? To catch up on blogs tonight

Hope you're all doing well

Blue center

...that is how you spell the color blue, right? 

I need a nap...

No dark chocolate please


Is like a box of chocolates

You never know what you're gonna get

And that's what life has felt like this week

All crazy and out of whack

I'm way behind on blogs

I've received emails from friends that I have yet to respond to...

(sorry friends!! I'll get there!!)

I started school this week, so that just adds to the madness

I'm only taking one class (I plan to sign up for a couple more later on)

But I also took a year off, so I have to transition back to school life and that ain't gonna be pretty

I'm trying to push through so that I can get into the stuff that I want to study

And then there's Boyfriend...

My wonderful, amazing Boyfriend

(remind me to show you the list he wrote last night...super cute)

He also needs my attention, and yet he's very patient when I can't give it to him

There's my puzzle....

Remember my puzzle?

(I would link to one of the posts with it, but I'm in too much of a hurry)

I still have to finish that

Plus the cross-stitch that I started for Papa Smurf last year...

I stopped working on that to finish the puzzle...

And then I stopped working on the puzzle cause it got ridiculous

And I only have one sister that will work on it with me


One of these nights you wanna have a puzzle fiesta??


I won't hate you if you don't...

And Boyfriend and I spent all day yesterday in the kitchen baking

But we didn't finish one of the projects, so we have to go do that now

Which means I have to go

I just wanted to stop in and say hi

And say that I miss you

And I shall slowly catch up on your blogs

And just so you know?

If you step on black, you'll turn into an ogre

And if you step on blue, you'll turn into a ninja elephant

My niece informed me of that yesterday

So...you might want to be careful :)

It makes me wonder though

If you stepped on a black square with blue polka-dots...

Would you turn into a half ogre half elephant ninja?
