Do we really let this into our homes?

This actually made me sick. I couldn't finish it. This person is one of the most powerful people in our country. After watching, I immediately felt the need to read scripture particularly John 14:6. If you don't pray for our country already, I strongly encourage you to.

"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world." John 16:33

Things on Kaleb's mind.

Today, I got to spend the entire day with Kaleb. If you ever wondered what goes on in the mind of a 5 year old, just listen to one talk. Below listed are a few things Kaleb chose to enlighten me with.

1. If Mommy and Daddy don't stop kissing, they are gonna have ANOTHER kid... and they can't keep up with me, how are they going to keep up with 2 kids!(He was seriously concerned)

2. Alabama went to the BCS Sugar Bowl, and they lost because some guy wanted to play in the NFL. Also Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Florida, Tennessee, and Mississippi are in the SEC, and Florida beat Alabama in the Championship. But Roll Tide Anyway(this is verbatim).

3. Lee Tiffin is terrible. (I did not put that into his head.)

4. If we don't say the blessing, we will choke on our food.

5. When he goes into 1st grade, he can buy ice cream in the lunchroom. But he doesn't think his mommy will ever give him enough money for that.
~Immediately following this comment, I assured him that Aunt Carrie would make sure he had enough money for ice cream.

6. Nana does not know how to drive.

7. It is time for me to have children, before I get too old. :0/

8. She does not need to wear a bikini.-- About a girl at the pool, thankfully not to her face.

I laughed all day today. Kids are so brutally honest.

I don't think I've ever posted twice in one day... But I thought I would talk about my new favortie thing to do. Okay, it has been one of my favorite things for a while, but I recently took it to an entirely different level.
Last Thursday was my good buddy, John's birthday(He was 27). While shopping at Michael's one day I saw a guitar shaped cake pan, thought it was quite possibly the coolest thing ever. It was at that point that I decided to "conquer" the guitar cake. It was a little nerve racking, but actually ended up being pretty easy. Had a little assistance from Ali, Leah, G-Rider, and Ando... and together we pulled it off. Yay, Go Team!

Essay Tests... AHHH!!!

This morning, I had my final in geriatrics respiratory care. This class itself has been fairly easy. However at 10 a.m. this morning(June 15th), my opinion completely changed.

After a minor freak out in Sunday School(I didn't stay for church), I studied most of the afternoon. I felt pretty good about the knowledge I had on the subject, and proceeded to social activities. It is now 10:05 a.m, I am sitting in a classroom staring at a 93 question essay test. Yes, You heard me correctly. 93 Essay Questions. I don't think anyone would blame me for majorly geeking out. I starred at the paper(s) for a good 10 minutes before I mustered up the courage to attempt this thing. 2 hours later, I turn in my paper, hoping for a C.
Note: an average of a C is required to get out of the class.
What kind of professor gives a 93 question essay test? Seriously, why would you want to grade that?

I get my grade on Wednesday, I just hope I have a C. I feel like an A at this point will not happen. Oh well.

Some Semi-Interesting facts

Okay, probably only interesting to me.

  • Cars DO NOT interest me at all. Not even a little bit. I care that it runs, has gas, and the condition. That's all.
  • Donald Duck is banned in Finland, because he doesn't wear pants.
  • Asthma sucks.
  • Kermit the Frog is left-handed.
  • The average person falls asleep in seven minutes.
  • The average human eats 8 spiders in their lifetime at night.
  • Holding raw meat grosses me out. Like Alot.

Random injuries I have aquired in a weeks time

1. Broken toe on a recliner
Yeah, you heard me right. Hanging at a friends place on Saturday, I walked past his recliner(plaid recliner by the way), stubbed my toe on it. My toe is now purple, and completely immobile.

2. Severely bruised wrist
While reaching for a tube of mascara today, my hand got stuck under the passenger seat of my car. It required some serious twisting and yanking to get it out. To make matters worse I was driving on Greensprings, and a light was about to turn green at any moment. So, needless to say I was freaking out. My hand at this very moment is in fact red, swelling, and blue.

Makes me wonder what else I'm gonna get into this week.

Iguana Grill

So, a very close friend of mine (love you, Mer) will soon be 25 years old. She wanted to have mexican with her amazing friends... the resturaunt of her choice, The iguana Grill. Now, there are a LARGE number of invties, because well, we are just so awesome, everyone wants to be our friend. On Monday, I thought I would call the Iguana Grill and inquire about reservations, since we can't just walk in and ask for a table for 25. Cliff Notes version of the conversation with the "senorita" that answered the phone.

Senorita: Iguana Grill
Me: Yes, Mam... can you tell me to accept reservations, or do call ahead seating?
Senorita: Hola, Iguana Grill
Me: Do you take reservations?
Senorita: Si, what would you like to order?
Me: No, I don't want to order anything. I would like to make reservations.
Senorita: Hola, Iguana Grill.
Me: Reservaciones?
Senorita: Heh?
Me: Re-ser-va-tions?
Senorita: Heh?
Me: RESERVATIONS!!(I am in fact yelling.)
Senorita: Si, Uno Momento.

She then gave the phone to another Senorita whose english was a tiny bit better. A similar but not as long conversation. She did in fact take my reservation, thankfully.
