You can't leave footprints in the sands of time if you're sitting on your butt. And who wants to leave butt prints in the sands of time?

Awkward
-picking raspberries and being eaten alive by mosquitoes.
-doing a shimmy and shake in the above stated raspberry patch to get mosquitoes off of me and gracefully tipping over right into the middle of the patch.
-going into the bathroom stall sitting down and having the bathroom door swing open and the lady says don't mean to bother you but and proceeds to talk to me, really I'm trying to go potty and you are talking to me and have the door wide open do you not realize bathroom stalls have large cracks in them and nobody wants to see my bare butt!

Awesome
-my mom had surgery and it went well she is amazing!
-canning, canning, canning

Sleep oh how I miss you.....

This last week I have not went to bed until late every night because Ty has been cutting grain and have not gotten use to him being gone. But last night he was home at a decent time and still I was up until 11:30 while everyone slept what is with that? Then when I finally did crawl into bed I only slept for a few hours until all the neighborhood dogs went nuts (including ours). Finally went back to sleep when the dog jumps up on the bed and lays right on top of me licking himself I mean come on go do that in the living room or something ugh. oh and it does not end there about and hour after that I hear someone walking upstairs I go to investigate it is only miss M doing lord only knows. Crawl my tried butt back into bed and the dog proceeds to jump on and off of the bed several times come on make up you dang mind I'm trying to sleep here. Finally get back to sleep when one of the little men come in and ask if they can watch TV I throw in my towel at that point. I guess sleep will have to wait.

Sometimes I just want to scream....

I love my little town so very much but sometimes I wish people would be more excepting and less judgmental. I don't fit the cookie cutter person in this town well what they think is right, but you know what I like it that way. You can live your life the way you want to and I'll live mine the way I want to and it is okay I promise. Many of you know I'm not LDS and never will be but I'm so dang tired of being judged for it I'm a good person that does good things. Yes I have a glass of wine with dinner and so enjoy that and go shopping on Sundays. I know you don't agree with my choices but I'm fine with my choices. Why don't you worry about yourself and not me. One question why your trying to run my life who is running yours? I'm not saying your wrong in the way you live, it just not what I believe and yes let me clarify I do believe in god.

This ones for you ky

So yesterday my mom dropped the boys off at work to me before they came in to see me they checked out who was working at the front desk. We leave at get into the truck and ask me where is Kylee? I explained to them that she no longer worked there because she went back to school. They proceed to tell me oh mom we sure are going to miss Kylee being there. Well at least I'm not the only on that is still upset about the situation. Love you kyky!

Awkward
-drunk man hugging and kissing me on the forehead and not letting go oh man was that bad I could have pasted out just by the smell of beer on his breath.
-stepping on about 8 thorns at the same time talk about wanting to cry but do you think it would teach me to wear shoes outside nope.
-a lady asking me the same question over and over but just in different ways over the course of two days really do you think my answer is going to be different this time? I finally started screening my calls hate to do that but I had to get some work done besides answering the same question over and over.
-butt cracks and underwear.
-Jean shopping with a 12 year old just shot me next time. Skinny jeans really did you just pour yourself into those?
-men scratching themselves in public I mean come on at least make sure no ones looking or take yourself in a corner. We don't want to see that.
-kids that are excited to go back to school like that's going to last maybe a day or until they have to do homework.
