asdf (translation: I didn't feel like labeling this)

Howdy, folks! Hope everybody's had a wonderful week. Mine was good. Interesting. uneventful. Ordinary. Whatever. 
Yesterday was interesting. We babysat all day. Three kids, two different families. Very unusual. I'd give you details, but I can't for the life of me remember.
Today was pretty good. I cleaned out the car, cleaned the bathroom and cut the grass this morning. This afternoon was a big youth rally that a bunch of area churches put together at the local middle school. It was fantastic. There was a terrific dance group, a couple of great singing groups, and an amazing worship band. We had a blast. It was me, Joy, Haley, and a few others. Just us girls, except for my dad and Pastor Jon. They were our 'chaperones' for the evening, along with Ms. Carol. Mr. John had to work.
Then after we finished there (around 7:45) we headed straight to the church for band practice.
So it's been one long day. I need to turn in.
Good night, all!

Quick Note

Hey, guys!! Just a quick note to say hi. Today is pretty uneventful, except for the obvious, studying for Bible Bee. We're watching one of Anne's friends and her little sister today. 
I also wanted to suggest that you check out I can't really explain it, so you'll have to check out the website. 
Have a great day!

Today (Updated)

Hey!! I hope you all had a wonderful day. I know I sure did. 
I wound up with not only two boys, but two girls as well. A five-year-old and a three-year-old. We had a fantastic time. They were all great, and the baby is absolutely precious. 
But, boy, am I tired! Four children all day long can really take their toll on you. 
So I'm going to go ahead and close. I still have to figure out what I'm wearing tomorrow.


Hey, guys. Just a quick note to let you know what I'm doing today. I've got a babysitting gig. The mom should be here in about an hour to pick me up. I think it goes 'til about four o'clock. I'm watching two little boys, one's three and the other's almost one. It should be interesting, to say the least. Wish me luck!

A blog to check out

Hey, folks!! Yes, I know, fourth post in one day. I'm really on a roll. I have another blog y'all need to check out. Check out
It's a blog all about homeschooling and homeschoolers. Ohhh, I suppose I'd better be perfectly honest and tell you that It's another of my blogs, created under a fake name on another Google account. I'm Cerinthe. But that doesn't make a difference. Check it out and let me know what you think!!!


Hey, guys. I should probably explain the two very odd pictures at the bottom of the page. They're both in memory of our Apples to Apples game Wednesday night. If you've ever played that game, you know that random conversations are bound to happen. The waffles are pretty self-explanatory. The green card was 'Special', somebody laid 'Waffles', and we all tried to decide whether or not waffles are special. From thence came the quote, "They're all waffle-ey and stuff". 
The feather thing came when it was my turn to judge. The green card was 'Crooked', somebody laid 'Feathers'. I thought it was a good one, others disagreed. It became a debate. 
Since then, Joy and I have decided that the term "Crooked Feathers" means a meaningless or stupid argument. 
So I decided to post those pics. Sorry. I'm random. 


Hey!! Just a couple of quick updates, and a little bit of news. 
1) I finally picked a murder mystery for my sweet 16. "A Dead Man's Chest" is the name of it. Check out for a taste of what we'll be doing. :)
2) We're going on Vacation!! (Imagine that in a sing-song-ey, I'm excited kind of tone.) Not much of one, but September 13-15 we're going to Williamsburg for some fun. Mom looked back on our summer the other day and realized that we hadn't had any fun this summer. So when everybody else is starting school, we're headed away to enjoy ourselves.
3) Bible Bee is less than a month away!! Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!! (panic and terror). I have upwards of 1,000 verses to memorize, six pages of trivia to learn, and six books of the Bible to know inside and out. Wish me luck!! 
4) Spring is coming for a visit!! In September, her and her family are coming down. I can't wait!!!
Okay, I think that's everything. Thanks for listening!
Have a great day!

I'm back!!!!!!!!!

Well, everybody, I'm back!!! I'm sorry about that. I was going through something, and I kind of couldn't blog without talking about it. It's far from over, but I think I can handle it now.
I can't hope to fill you in on everything that's happened since I've been gone, but I can try.
Voice of Truth, the worship band from my old church, have gotten back together. My dad was lead guitarist. The band has been getting together every Thursday night back at the barn at my neighbor's. That's been enjoyable. Joy went with me night before last. We had a really good time. 
Wednesday night, most of the youth group came over to my house for food and games. We played some Catch-phrase and some Apples to Apples. We had a grand old time. Lots of silliness and fun. Joy actually practically moved in this week. She stayed Wednesday night and Thursday night. We had a blast. We always have fun when we're together.
Today I'm babysitting while Mom and Dad go grocery shopping. 
Something I caught myself saying today: "Okay, Thing 1, Thing 2, and Thing 3. I'm going to the bathroom. If the living room isn't spotless when I come out, all three of you are staying in your rooms until Mom and Dad get home."
Sounds harsh? Not really. I'd been trying for ten minutes to get them to clean up their mess, and then I turn around and the boys are on Riley's bed wrestling and Anne is walking around aimlessly singing, "He could be the one, he could be the one, he could be the o-o-o-o-one." 
No, she's not in love. We'd just finished watching that episode of Hannah Montana, and we all have that stupid song in our head. What's really weird is hearing your seven-year-old brother walk through the house singing, "He could be the one." over and over again. I begged him to please please change the lyrics. Sing, "She could be the one" if you have to sing Hannah Montana at all. Then Anne started singing it that way. I just can't win for loosing. 
Well, Mom and Dad should be home pretty soon. After that we might go to the church this afternoon. Other than that I don't know. 
Y'all have a good day!!

Bizarre Moment

The pastor's boys are at my house. Carie's future husband is marrying
my cat. Don't ask me why. Boys are so weird.
