“Get your filthy paws off of me!” A nice little saying from a Kim Possible episode. I didn’t see the episode but I heard quite a funny story about it from Bob M.

I don’t really have much to say today. Candace is still sick and she’s at home sleeping.

Mady didn’t go to sleep till three pm today and that drove me bonkers!

I’m reading Clear and Present Danger by Tom Clancy. I had no idea how much he cusses! It’s almost as bad as Stephen King.

My stomach is growling really loud right now and that is very bad because I am at the library. I think the person beside me thinks that I’m flagalating! Yikes!

Javier gets cable tonight and I am sooooo excited. I’ll get to watch Dora the Explorer and all that. I think Javier should get a xanga site. Don’t you? I don’t know when he would write in it because he has no time.

Well I guess that’s it for now. Maybe I’ll write more later. I love you ALL


“The Magical Mr. Mistofolees!”   Quite possibly the best part of CATS is when that magnificent cat comes out and does his number! Wonderful. You should see his before picture…….So that’s my quote for today. I was debating on putting Dance in the River but Candy(who is sick) and I are watching.

So much to talk about CIY……
I’ll start on Saturday because that’s what day it really started for me. Adam, me and Candy woke up at eight and left for Javiers to help him with his moving. We finished around eleven thirty am and we went to pick up the Expeditions and took them to his Catherine St. home. We then packed some more and Javier left to go to his bro’s wedding. Kate had come over by then, so had John but he had to go to work, but anywho…..we went back to Poinciana to take Kate’s van back and to pick up our stuff. So we got Kate and picked up Andrew, grabbed all our bags and took Candace to work. Kate, Andrew, me and Adam went out to eat at UNO’s where I spilt Kate’s coke on me and then we went shopping for my sandals. After that we went back to the Catherine St. home and waited for mom and dad to pick up the truck. John came over with Candy later at twelve thirty and then everyone went to bed.
     The next morning we all woke up at five thirty because Javier said that he would be at the house at six. He had all the keys to the SUV’s so we had to wait for him. He didn’t get there till almost six thirty. We made it to the church uneventfully; I drove the U-Haul!

Well everyone piled into the vehicles and we left. I had all girls and Nils! It rocked! Awesome trip for me. Woodstock was interesting. I don’t know why they thought we were awesome?!?

Monday was pretty groovy. First day usually is. Aaron Pelsue band was good. We sang Everlasting Love that night and that was great. I thought very highly of the band then.

Tuesday: not bad. Worship and Encounter time was great. This year rocks way more than last year(for more reasons than everyone knows!) I am so psyched to be there. Is this the day the massive flood comes? Well if it is you all know about it so I wont explain. If you don’t know; email me!

Wednesday. I think this is the day of the flood but anywho…..I didn’t go to elective today because we had our general session and I went to lunch with Javier and Anna. I like the Phil Chalmers guy. Didn’t totally agree with everything.(If I have my days mixed up…who cares!)

Thursday was a fun day. We went to Applebees as a whole group. We had to sit in the smoking section. That sucked because there were some people there smoking. I have realized by this point that Anna and I have quite a deal in common. I had noooooo idea. Strange. “I love lamp!”

Friday was a sleepy day. Right after lunch I hit the sack. Javier told me to be up by supper which was at five. So I was up and ready at five. I call Javier two or three times and he is not ready…..he’s still sleeping! So at SIX pm he comes over and picks up all our stuff and we go to Arbys. I’m actually kinda tired. We go to worship and have an awesome time watching Javier imitate Aaron dancing. His time was another re-enactment of worship. We then all go to Dairy Queen where stupid Holly get’s a blizzard; which she knows will make her sick.

Early Saturday morning would find me calling Javier that I have to go to the bathroom because of that blasted blizzard(sorry Ryan D.). So we all stop and then we all go. At four am I call Javier again and tell him that I have to go to sleep so we pull over at a rest area and park where the trucks park. We take an hour power nap and I feel great again. Stephanie switched spots with Kate and I make her talk to me. Everytime I start blinking I yelled at Steph “talk to me!” We made it. I think the funniest part was when we pulled over at the toll booth and went to the bathroom and Javier tried to leave without Keli! That was funny.
Once we got back to the church, me, Javier, Candy, Adam, John and my mom and Joanne had to wait for everyone to leave and then we had to take the trailer back. And then we had to go all the way past Celebration to take the trucks back. We got there and then they had to go to fill the trucks up with gas. We waited for what seemed like an eternity for them to get back and then our truck went to Wendy’s to eat. After that Candy and I, who were sitting up front fell asleep sporadically! Adam and John, who were in back, I’m sure fell asleep. Once we got home I made my bed with my dirty, smelly sheets and I fell asleep. This was about one pm. Then I woke up around eleven thirty and I had to go to the bathroom. I went directly to sleep and woke up at eight am on Sunday am!!!!!    That’s eighteen hours of sleep! Is that not awesome?

Now I’m watching CATS with Candy who is still sick.
I’m going to work tomorrow so I can’t wait to see Mady again. She looks so big to me now. It’s crazy how big they get so fast and she’s not even mine. I love her!
I love you all (and I mean it!)



Today’s quote I feel has to go back to “Aicha.” “She moves, she moves like a breeze!”

 Today really flew by for me. I was watching Mady and it was like three o’clock before I realized it. Javier walked in the door and sat down and I was like “are you home?” He was like yeah, it’s three and I was like wow! It was interesting for me because usually the days drag on and on. Not that Mady is not the best and most wonderfulest little girl.

CIY is only a week from Sunday. Can you believe it? I cannot. I’m excited and nervous because last year was like a bummer year for me. I didn’t have fun(not that I was there for me but you get it) and I didn’t really learn anything. I guess I’m just good at complaining so……I guess you have to put up with it. So there.

I just got an email from Andres. He said that he can’t come to CIY because his company is definately going to Sweden. He leaves on the sixteenth or something. Anywho…..that sucks because I was really hoping on seeing him. Bummer big time!! So I guess we’ll see when he can come down. Somewhere in the back of my head it says “oh he doesn’t really want to come down here……he’s just dragging you along.” And then I think “what does that get him?” I mean it’s not like it’s helping him being over there. Is it? Am I being blind to this whole thing? I don’t know. But I do know that I love him and I can’t stop.

I just read “Secret Window, Secret Garden,” by Stephen King. It’s what the movie with Johnny Depp is based on. And let me tell you if you saw the movie DON’T read the book. It stunk. Maybe it’s just that I can’t grasp Mr. King’s writing. I just don’t like to read fake stuff. (I know books are all made up but this is just bizzarre stuff he writes about!) I have to believe that this could happen and I kinda can but than again I kinda can’t…..so there.




“The best day of your life will start with a morning.”  Something I read in some magazine!

   Can you believe it’s Tuesday already. Wow. The weekend went fast. There was soooo much going on. Dad came down on Friday so we all scrambled to clean the house. I took the couch out of my room and “retired” it to the garage. For those of you who had seen it (think SuperBowl party ’04) it was definately time for it to go bye-bye!
   This past Sunday I totally tuned out Mark while he was preaching. I have been disagreeing with him more and more in his sermons so this week while he was preaching I wrote down all the verses I had memorized from years past. As it turns out, it’s not that many. Well I know alot(heehee) I just don’t know where there found. I guess I should read my bible while Mark teaches?! Does anybody else disagree with some things Mark says? I know that not everybody is going to agree or disagree with him at times. I’m just rambling!
   We cooked out on Sunday with Adams grill. The first thing out of Adams mouth is that he has to scrape off the FIESTA part of the grill because it’s a spanish word and we can’t have anything to do with them.
   After I took Candy to work at five and got everything loaded up in our cool new cooler and into the truck we took off for Kissimmee lake front. We got there around seven thirty and after we unloaded all our baggage, and believe me we had baggage!, mom and I went walking around. There wasn’t nearly as many booth’s as last year and we were truly dissapointed!
   It started raining while we were walking and mom and I didn’t really care because we weren’t going to melt. While were walking some guy asks us if we want to buy his umbrella for five bucks. Weirdo! And then a security guard talks to us about how we’ve gotten wet. (Here’s your sign!) Anywho… were like yeah, heehee. When we get back to our space which is now occupied by wimps hiding under a tarp!!!! I realize that our shirts have gotten so wet that moms shirt is showing through! She has this shirt on that has diagonals on is in different colors and white is right where her chest is and you can see through it. I was like “ah ha, that’s why everyone was talking to us!”
   Not that I ever had a doubt in my mind but the firework display showed me how stupid Florida really is!! They had the fireworks too close to the people and the ash and some fire was raining down on us!! Not cool! Mom jumps up and stands behind us in case we have to run for it.(I dont’ know why!) It was funny watching people run and scream…..heehee!

Well I guess that’s all I have to say about that!!     Oh guess what….not that your actually guessing anything…..I dyed my hair orange. Not all of it but streaks of it. I think it looks cool. It’s a bit bright but it’ll go down after I wash it! Well I love You ALL
