So, I'm walking down the busiest street in Logan, freezin my butt off and talking to my mom at the same time! I had just gotten out of my last class of the day and I wanted to tell her all about the cool things I'd learned in Humanities just a few minutes earlier! So I'm being chatty Natty and all the sudden some A hole in a hot rod mexi ride loudy lays on his muffler and blows past me. It was so loud it didn't stop for 30 seconds sending my mother into SHEER PANIC MODE!!! No lie I am still very much on the line and she is SCREAMING my name and shedding tears all at once. For some reason (can't figure out why) the call was dropped. So for 5 minutes I try to call her back and I get nothing, the line is busy. So I wait a few more and call her back. She was sobbing! She thought the loud noise in the background was a horn blaring and that I had just gotten into an accident. So she had managed to call my dad, and was about to call my roommate when I called. She was so upset she lectured me on talking on the phone and driving, (even though she knew I was WALKING back to my car) and that she couldn't talk on the phone anymore because she felt sick to her stomach!

Now this being said I love her to death! I really really do, but I am begging the Lord NOT to make me turn out as paranoid and dramatic as her!!! As I'm writing this I realize she would kill me if she knew I was even retelling this story! So this is between us! She's a great and talented women who I can truly say is my dear friend! But holy hell women!!! CALM DOWN!! :)

*This really made my day! I'm still laughing!!

9 words women use

1: FINE: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.
2. FIVE MINUTES: If she is getting dressed this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given 5 more minutes to watch the game before helping out around the house.
3. NOTHING: This is the calm before the storm. This means something and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in fine.
4. GO AHEAD: This is a dare, not permission. DON'T DO IT!
5. LOUD SIGH: This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing.
6. THAT'S OKAY: This is one of the most dangerous statements a woman can make to a man. Thats ok means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.
7. THANKS: A woman is thanking you, do not question, or faint. Just say you're welcome. (I want to add in a clause here this is true, unless she says thanks a lot- that is PURE sarcasm and she is not thanking you at all. DO NOT say you're welcome that will bring on a whatever!
8.WHATEVER: is a womans way of saying to Hell with you!
9. DON"T WORRY ABOUT IT, I GOT IT: another dangerous statement meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking, 'whats wrong.' For the womans response refer to #3.

I find this SO SO SO true! It made my day!

cowboys and indians

What happened to the good old days, when all people had to worry about was whether their cows and chickens were fed. I should have been born in those years, I would be perfectly content riding my horse up and down fence lines to check cows and watch them calve. Life is so much more complicated and dramatic these days. I'm quite sick of it! (so much for my positive thinking)

Positive Thinking!

Since I have been so sick that it hurts to watch movies and it hurts to read a book and most definitely hurts to do homework, not to mention sleeping is almost completely out of the question. Therefore, haven't done much of anything besides sit and stare at the wall, and think. Bad idea for me to be thinking this much. So this morning I woke up with a 103 temp at 5. I had to wake my roomie up to give me sponge bath... very awkward moment. We were unsuccessful in getting it back down. So it is about 2 when I'm finally starting to feel like my fever is breaking and lo and behold it has! So I flipped my sheets over in an attempt to make the germs go away because there is no way i'm going to the laundry mat. I got into the shower, and brushed my teeth and I'm feeling like a brand new me.... and then I think to myself.... you know there is one really good thing about being sick right now.... since I have no appetite today can be day 2 of my diet! YES!!!

Here's the thing, I've been running consistently now for almost 2 years. After completing my first marathon just a month ago, I'm having serious motivation problems. No the wedding is not enough for me. Sam loves me no matter what I look like. But the problem is that I have to do this for me. You would think, that it would get easier for me and that if I already know that I need to go running for me to feel good about myself then it should be much easier! haha thats funny! cuz its not! Nope, not at all!! So I am trying to do better this week! Trying very hard. With work, and homework, and school, I feel busy enough. But I need this for myself! ugh... out to run....

Girls Weekend

It was fun to see my family this weekend! Its tradition for all the Holmes sisters, cousins, and nieces once they are married or turn 18 get together once a year and go shopping and out to dinner in Salt Lake, that was this weekend! It was nice to see everyone and I got a little birthday lovin' a little early and it felt nice to have people around me that care so much! They LOVED my hair! Couldn't get enough of how pretty it is now!! It made me feel very ..... well...... pretty! Anyway, good weekend, thanks all!

I think that some life experiences you're suppose to have, but man wouldn't it be great if we could just surpass them all!? Ok like last week I spent 3 hours for 3 nights studying for my animal science exam and I got the results back to day.... I got a C! This is where I stop caring altogether about school! When I feel like I'm doing my best and my best just isn't good enough! So school isn't my friend at the moment! Then I find out I gotta find a place for Sam and I to live, not to mention Jack (Sam's boss) doesn't "feel like playing in the water".... EVERY DAY!!!! So he hasn't had any work... so I'm poor, trying to get good grades to pass this semester, working almost 5 days a week, and planning a wedding, with NO money! and its definitely not Sam's fault I just wish that money wasn't always an issue! But it always will be and I realize this....

So on a better note... well.... more like funnier... so Wrangler was sleeping with me last night. My roommate Jules also has a little puppy and so they were both chillin in my bed while I was completely out of it... and at one AM I wake up and realize that KY is still in my bed! NOT HAPPY!!! (he isn't potty trained and does his buziness wherever) So I yell for Jules, no answer, get up go to her room, not there, look outside car is here but she's not. So I take the thing to the bathroom and get back to bed. Two hours later she walks in my door and says.... what do you mean where am I? I've been here the entire night! So, needless to say, I'm blind and that is the fun thing that started my crazy day off!!! :) I still love ya though Jules!

Hopefully this weekend will be a good de-stresser for me! :) I hope!

The waiting

I think God knows I have some issues with patience. I'm not a fan! I'm ready for my classes to be over so I can just put this semester behind me and try to do a better job next, I'm ready for thanksgiving, and most definitely Christmas. Not to mention the wedding. My head is swarming with stresses of everyday life along with upcoming events. I think my focus on school has pretty much gone out the window. Today in math I was doodling invitations on my "note taking" paper. hahaha so much for that hour and half! I told Sam about the blog and he said "oh that's great babe, as long as I don't have to participate!" I just laughed that is so very typical! I'll get used to this though right?!?!? (This meaning living with a male again.)

New to this

So Kim convinced me to create a blog instead of writing some papers! haha just kidding! I am choosing to do so! So since Sam and I are technically not family yet there really isn't much to say! We are kinda lame like that! But I will say that the very first picture on our blog is going to be of my dog because he is our kid! I know to some (mother) that is disgusting and pathetic but he has been my companion for over a year now and he holds a very special place in my heart! So mom its ok if you never wanna come visit us because you know he'll probably sleep with us sometimes I still love you... but the dog stays! :) Besides that who could say no to something so stinkin cute!!!???? I know, I know, all of sam's in-laws and sisters can say holy cow I'm starting to feel bad for the kid but don't hold it against me! :)
