601. that's how many times this blog has been visited.Well since I put that little counter thingy on it. I don't know how to tell how many are repeats, accidental misses, weirdos from school, etc, but that's pretty dang cool. 300 more views is a 1000. Who'da thunk that it'd be seen that many times? I feel kinda wowed.

Today I am supposed to go to Kansas and the general feeling of ugh is starting to plague me. I should have spent the past hour getting ready, however, I haven't. My car isn't cleaned out, my bag isn't packed, dogs aren't put up, etc. I haven't even done the simplest thing of putting in my contacts. That's how awesomely lazy I am right now. Its not like I don't want to do, its more of I don't want to drive. I want everything to be a lot closer. I'm worried about my dogs. I just don't want to have to find out that I have to do laundry. I don't know which books to take. I'm tired. There's a list of things that are stopping me from getting started. None of them really valid. I guess its the main thought of going there really means summer is about to end for me.

It is a bazillion degrees outside. By a bazillion I really mean 82 that feels like 88 with humidity at 72%. That means you can drink the air. Or be suffocated by it. I wanted to go out and get my horse and ride around a bit, however, I don't want to die from being outside. I love summer heat, I hate humidity. It ruins everything for sure.
This weekend I am going to Kansas! Yay Kansas! I get to go see my mom and family over there and go yard sale-ing and thrifting. Plus its just the last chance to get out of Missouri before I leave to go back to school. Hopefully, I'll still have my car to drive in. Supposedly, my father ordered a new engine for my car and it is supposed to be in today. Which means it would be getting fixed this week. But no one really knows if he really did order it or if he even set up the appointment at the car fixing shop. Guess we'll have to wait and see.
Last night was my last night at work. It was pretty fun. Frickin' butter!

The mood I'm in now is something even "Little Shop of Horrors" can't fix. Or "Pirates of Penzance". Or any Gilbert and Sullivan. Or "Grease", "Footloose", "Rent", "Wicked" or "Oklahoma". "Fiddler on the roof" either.

I feel like bulleting this...
- I worked 8-3 today. And I go back in at 6 till probably 9 or 10. All because I'm a nice person and willing to take the extra hours.
- Fever blister. It sucks. And makes me feel super unattractive.
- Its hot outside. Smothering, could cook a meatloaf outside hot.
- Forgot to chill the Gatorade. And water. And coke.
- My dog looks like a dork cause he has to have fake nails. :)

If I loved you less, I might be able to talk about it more. -Jane Austen
Sometimes that's how I feel about my relationship with God. That I cannot speak about Him and relationship to Him because I might love Him too much. If you love something too much its like you don't want to share him with anyone. Every now and again it gets shared, but not often enough.
If that makes me a terrible person, so be it. I want to share, but its super awkward. I am not eloquent when I speak. I stutter, stumble and can't find the right words. Which is really ironic considering I want to be a missionary. Or believe I want to be. Surprisingly I can speak a lot better in a different language, weird I know. But who knows what the next year, five, ten years hold for me? I don't know the future anymore than I know who is going to win the lotto or walk into the store I work at. Maybe I'll be a missionary, maybe a musician, maybe an artist, counselor, groomer, paper pusher, who knows. I do know that I love my God just a little too much and should probably release my tight hold on Him a little so I can talk about Him more.

From the inspiration of DC Cupcakes and friend Ryan Nosay, I'm going to try my hand at some cupcakes. I'm pretty good at the normal cakes, but miniatures are slightly more scary. Hopefully, I'll be able to make these angelfood ones with strawberry buttercream frosting and either chocolate garnish or fondant flowers. Let's hope that they turn out okay because I would really like to take some to Salina when I go.
In other news, a few of my pictures have been looked at for a gallery.
Will and Grace is still a great show.

Today was mildly productive. Managed to read and finish two books and rearrange my room. Also just found out that I just de-fung shui'ed my room which I'm sure will just destroy the flow of energy and completely throw off the yin and yang. Oh well just darn it. If it doesn't work, I'll just move it back the way it was.
Currently, I am obsessed with mild trash drama shows. Secret life of the American Teenager, Teen Mom, Ellen (which isn't real trash, but still highly addictive), Obsessed, Hoarders, etc. No idea why but they just draw me in and I have to keep watching just to see what happens and why. But I can't turn them off or pass by if I have a few hours to spare watching them. I should get addicted to the history channel, that way I can learn something.
well, this blog is getting dull. so i'm going to go finish my laundry and get a giant bowl of ice cream. yay ice cream!

It never ceases to amaze me how long time takes and how short it feels. I now sit three weeks away from going back to North Carolina. It seems like an eternity, but at the same time the knowledge is there that by the time I get there my summer will have seemed to flown by. Like every summer, most of the things I wanted to do haven't been done. Hopefully soon I can get some of the things done. More than likely won't happen because I really enjoy not doing things on my days off. Hopefully I'll be able to get at least one thing done. That's sending a box out that has been wanting to be sent for at least a month now. Tomorrow a letter will finally be sent. Hopefully enjoyed too!
Well, its now 11. And old me is saying I need to go to bed.
I got asked if I was 16 today. second time this week.

Today was another long day at work. I got to leave an hour early because I've been racking too many hours up. Then I got to come home and clean out the fridge, mow the lawn, and fix the fence for the horses. My dad helped me, sorta, with the fence. He ended up being late, which means I did most of the work.
i'm typing in blue because i'm not exactly happy right now. guess you can call it sad.
i'm going to go read "The Man Who Loved Jane Austen." Its a good book.

Well, my mini vacation was great and relaxing. I didn't see a whole lot of people like I hoped I would. Everyone had a silly rehearsal up in a town that was too far for me to go to. But it was nice just hanging out with my friend and not worrying about family stuff or work, just chilling. Unfortuently, I go back today. For nine hours. In five days I'm getting in 41 hours- before clock in/out time. Its crazy. And mostly because there's this annual picnic in town (that i never go to) so everyone else wants off. Cool by me, just means more hours which means more money.

Today I get to go down to Waynesville for the weekend! Yay! I'm so excited to go and see my friends and hang out. Oh, Waynesville is where I graduated from high school and is the one place I've lived the longest. Though I did live in four different houses while there....
I'm going to go see friends!!! Yay!!!

I just got done doing fireworks with my Grandpa. This is the second year that its been just us (me) doing them. This year there was one that was particularly neat. I had gone out in my pre-picked spot and set up this firework that was supposed to be a pretty little fountain. Well, I lit it and ran as fast as I could back to the porch, but somewhere along the way it must have tipped over because the entire thing went off! I caught just the end when it was all red and sparky and neat. Apparently, it looked like one of those movie scenes where the hero is running away from the bombs. My grandpa had a great time with that and couldn't stop laughing for a while. I had another one that was a seal that should have sparked, screamed and rolled across the ground. It didn't. It sat there and I worked on it for a while...but alas that stupid pink seal just sat there. Darn seal. So much fun running and lighting and running and ooing and ahhing!!! :)

Third Friday in a row I've covered for someone else. I don't really mind, but I think they should just go ahead and schedule me on Fridays. It makes it so much easier. The biggest thing that happened at work was a guy asked me what I wanted to do with my life (an old guy. he was totally grey.) I said, "Missionary." Which prompted the "Where?" Which always comes the "Germany is where I want to serve." Then he said, after shaking his head, "You need to go to Africa, so you can know real need and better appreciate everything you have here." I didn't say anything, cause frankly I didn't want to start the whole, need is everywhere, just because you can't see it doesn't mean it isn't there. And then the not all need is purely physical. Some need is mental, emotional and spiritual. He went off muttering how I didn't know anything about need and needed to appreciate everything I had especially my job and home, etc. I really love people, sometimes.
