my goodness, thanksgiving was yesterday and it was ridiculously amazing! we watched end of the spear... (great movie btw....went thru a few tissues tho.) after watching that movie i felt SO blessed!! even the little things....like having a warm bed....
there is soo much we take for granted every day, and it's soo nice to have a day set aside to just sit back and be thankful for all of it. :)
plus....i think i gained 10 pounds....that was some good food...
hope u guyses thanksgiving was fantastic!
so this week my headphones got devoured by mice in my grandma's house.....
i was quite torn up about it and it took me a few long seconds to recover....
i came crying to my mommy and she put a band-aide on them but it didn't quite fix my problem....which was....
THE FACT THAT I WAS EXPECTED TO GO FOR HOURS AT A TIME WITHOUT MY LIFE SUPPORT. meaning....my precious iPod. *my precious*
we took an emergancy run to Best Buy where they could hook me up with some new stuff...
and so i got new PINK headphones that are way better than the original ones! (mostly because they're pink)
and so the good news is people....that you don't hafta be worried about me dying anytime soon....unless we have headphone-eating mice in our house too.....*paranoid face!*
wow. so my church went camping last night up in cave city. this is the second camping trip i've been on in my life....and the first one was terrible! yeah lots of rain....and uhh...lectures on my clothes, and why i shouldn't wear makeup, and how i need to suck it up and be more manly about camping.
anywho. so this trip was way better. camping was pretty fun...minus the rocky bed and the food and stuff...but it was fun bein around my friends this time. then we went canoeing......and that was TOTALLY not my cup-o-tea, lemme tell ya. we canoed seven miles...which i mean...isn't that bad if you actually have some mucsle. (ha). i got completely wiped about halfway thru the trip....and was about to punch josh off the face of the earth cuz he was being stupid....but that's ok...because it's josh and everybody loves josh. it was really cool being around nature for a long while tho....it doesn't take much to realize how great our God is!! anyways....then i realized that when i talked it wasn't working!! my voice is almost completely gone! (yes chase, i tried clearing my throat...and it really is gone this time... ;) ) plus i have the worst sore throat EVER! GAH!
basically....camping = fun.....canoeing = unfun
wow, so lots of stuff has been happening with me lately. not real interesting stuff tho. just the "normal" everyday stuff we call life....the type of stuff nobody in their right mind would post about cuz it's so freaking boring. lol. yeah that stuff. :)
things have been happening with my realationship with God too. i've been wanting to grow closer to him, and to feel his fullfilment in my life, you kno? i want that "warm fuzzy feeling" like everyday. but then i realize, hey, it's not all about "feelings", it's about faith. so i've really been trying to just give my "normal everyday" stuff up to him, and the crazy everything else stuff too. and so far, it seems to be working. :) i just want my whole life to revolve around him, and for all the distractions to just...ah...stop distracting me! listen to the song "My God's enough" on my playlist, it pretty much sums up what i'm feeling here. cuz i obviously am terrible at explaining it.
but then life smacks me in the face and i realize i'm growing up. sooo many of my friends kno what they want to do with their life, and i'm just sitting here "eenie miney moe-ing" thru my bazillion ideas. it's driving me crazy and i feel like i'm losing control of my life! which is good, cuz that's when Jesus steps in and says "lemme help with that." but you kno, i WANT to kno what's gonna happen with the rest of my life. i feel like i NEED to kno what i'm going to do RIGHT NOW. but God is sitting here trying to shove the idea into my thick skull that he's got it all planned out already. and i'll kno when the time comes. which is partly a relief, and partly a pain in the butt cuz everyone who knos me, knows i have the patience of a three month old puppy who has to go to the bathroom. (if that made any sense at all)
ANYWAYS!! sorry this was such a longnormous post. didn't mean for it to be. thanx for listening to my rambles. :-*
I GOT MY BRACES OFF!!!!!!!
