I had many brilliant thoughts as to what I should post about. I had a post all written up in my head. And I forgot. Everything. Not really typical of me, but something new happens all the time.

So what should I do? I probably just shouldn’t post.

This weekend looks like it’ll be good. We have some friends over. Ya’ll can look at pics on facebook if you have one. If you do have a facebook and haven’t added me as a friend yet, then now’s a good time to fix the problem! 🙂

Other than that… basically just remember about the giveaway and tell your friends!



Just a couple of pics

   My uncle loves his camera. I like it, too, actually! It’s nicer than my grandpa’s… but that’s beside the point! Anyhow… Uncle Brian sent me these pics that he took and I thought I’d share them with you. He must’ve had to use a LOT of patience! Otherwise the deer was rather friendly. =D

Book reviews coming!

Most of my traffic has to do with books. People wanting free books or book reviews. Now the free books I can’t help with, though I will suggest that you try – I don’t know how I ever lived without it! The books aren’t free, but it’s the next best thing.

Now with book reviews: I truly am going to get more done! I think that my top five searches that are landing people here are “Secret of the Golden Cowrie”, “Gloria Repp”, “Donna Lynn [or Donnalynn] Hess”, “Janet Aylmer”, and “Father’s Promise”. I will get these done soon, so please don’t give up hope! 

Thanks for your patience!

FINALLY I update

My life has been really busy lately, which I love. There’s only one problem that I can find with being so busy, and that is my neglecting those who read my blog. There really aren’t very many of you. Somehow I haven’t been able to gain any popularity here on wordpress. That’s okay — I’ll keep trying to be a faithful blogger. 

A couple of weeks ago I was in Kentucky. It really doesn’t seem like it’s been that long, but that’s the way things go. I went with my church’s quiz team to go to the Kentucky Invitational Quiz-off. Or KIQ-off. It was my first quiz tournament. 

We got up at 3:45 on Wednesday morning and met at the American Airlines ticket counter at 4:30. Early, but totally doable on my part. hehe I can go without sleep for awhile, so I survived until Sunday on very little sleep. 
The flights went pretty well. We flew from DIA to Dallas/Ft. Worth, then from D/FW to Louisville. (As a side note, have you ever heard locals pronounce Louisville? I still can’t say it the way they do! So yeah…) My camera got stolen by somebody in the D/FW airport, so that makes me mad, but I’ll be okay.

The quiz tournament went pretty well. It was my first time competing against people who weren’t from my church. Sadly, I only got 3 jumps the whole time we were there. And *ahem* I think that 2 of them were on the free question. =( I feel kinda bad about that… I mean, my plane ticket wasn’t exactly free or anything. So I should’ve helped the team more. The truth is, I tried for almost every jump from chapters 1-6. But I am so  slow! =( I’ll be working on that every chance I get, though.
We got 5th place out of… 12, I think.

Our flight home was on Sunday morning. EARLY Sunday morning. We got up at 4:30 am KY time, which is 2:30 CO time. When we got to the airport we went straight to church. Where I fell asleep during the service. I don’t usually do that, but I hadn’t slept at all on Tuesday, not very long on Wednesday, not at all on Thursday, slept well on Friday, and got a few hours of sleep Saturday night. I was zonked!

So… I’ve been writing on this a little bit at a time. In a family of 6, there’s always someone asking me to give the computer to them. GRRR… But I’m finally ready to post this. Sorry if any of it seems choppy. 

And… real quick (seeing that no one has asked for the computer yet)… I’ll give you an update on current stuff.

School is going really well… I might be caught up in math and science by Christmas! Three cheers for anatomy! It’s SO much better than chemistry! 
Piano is also going well. I’m glad to have a teacher again. Teaching yourself isn’t a good route to go. Especially if you get into your head that something is one way and it isn’t. LOL

So far as my camera situation goes, I’m going to get one off of eBay again, I think. My last one was a success and I saved over $200. Which is never a bad thing. I happen to be broke right now, but I have a few nice hardcover books to sell. They’re part of the World’s Best Reading series that I collect, but I don’t want these ones. (Language issues) I know that this sounds really selfish – it IS really selfish, but if ya’ll could pray that I get a good price from them, I’d appreciate it! I hope to post them on eBay this month. (But we’ll see how that goes.) 

Well, I need to get going. Breakfast is almost ready and I’m not dressed yet! =D  [BUT I got the computer to myself!!!!]
