Happy New Year's Eve!

Well, say good bye to 2007, everybody. The thought that it is never coming back really gets to me every year. I spend the rest of the day feeling depressed, although I'm supposed to feel happy.

My Aunt is still in New York, hopefully healing.

Tonight I am all alone, just me and my sickly family. Everyone is still sick! I'm pretty much better, though. I think I'm all healed, though I had to have a shot at the doctors today. That was the least from fun. Still can't move my arm much. I remember when I had my tetanus shot, my dad hugged me so hard right on that arm! I can't remember ever feeling so much pain from a shot ever in my life, until I got that tetanus.

But I digress..

Just wishing everyone a Happy New Year and hoping for you all that the new year brings you a fresh start in life. And that fresh start...should rock!

Life Is Beautiful

It doesn't seem like it has been so long since I have posted, but apparently so. I just can't seem to find the time in between coughs. I think that I have recovered, though. I just have to take care of my Mum and Dad now. What a shame... is beautiful. Admit, you know that it is. Something extremely sad has happened to someone really close: My Aunt.

Two people(dear to her, you know) have passed away all in this dreadful month of December. Her Aunt left suddenly after a few months following a surgery that was reported "fine". She merely didn't see it coming. She flew to New York in hopes of being with her parents and attending the funeral. She called this morning while we were driving in the car(reached by Mum's cell phone), and tells us that her Mother passed away. She certainly saw this one coming, but it still hurts you. Now she is flying back to New York early tomorrow for some catching up and what she needs to do. Please have her in your thoughts because she really needs love at the moment.

Have a Happy Last-Saturday-of-the-year!

Merry Day After Christmas!

I'm still sick, so is everyone else. But I think I'm making some progress. This morning Dad took me and himself out to a local restaurant/bakery to have a nice breakfast. It was rather soothing, for a change. We both agreed that it was absolutely lovely getting out of this house and getting into the fresh air atmosphere. We definitely needed it for sure. I felt somewhat better walking around, but then I reached my limit all too soon. I couldn't keep myself steady; he began complaining about the chilliness. That was about it : our journey's end : our time to come home.

Sorry this post is ending at such a weird spot. Must go and help Mum unpack now. She deserves as much help as she can get. Good night..

Merry Christmas?

Okay, well...I have never had a more "not-enjoyable" Christmas. I still feel so awful!! I'm still in bed, and I am coughing so much that I have back aches, and my throat is bleeding. Still dizzy when I walk, can't stay awake for too long. For some reason, I am starving all the time. Every time I eat something, I feel extremely hungry a little while later.

Mum took me to church this morning, which is traditional of course, but I could hardly handle myself! In a packed, tight area where I was constantly blowing my nose, coughing during prayers, and nearly collapsing in my chair. It was an awful experience. I could hardly concentrate.

I did get nice gifts, though. It was delightful, though money was quite tight this year.
Mum got me a gift card to a book store(I LOVE bookstores), and to Starbucks(Yes.....). Also, a matching set of ladybug stud earrings and a necklace.

Dad got me a croquet set(I haven't played before, but now we have a backyard!), and a professional badminton set(with a net and rackets and everything!). Both these activities came in a convenient carrying case.

This was very nice, though.

Did I mention everyone else is sick, too? My dad is sick and sore. So much, that Mum almost called emergency last night because of a really bad pain in his leg that was causing him to moan and yell.

Mum was fine, and all of a sudden she is sick. She is NEVER sick. She just doesn't get sick. It doesn't happen.

Please prayers for my family..which isn't looking too good.

I hope that everyone had a Merrier Christmas than me!

I'm back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Better then EVER!!!!!!!!!! I have so much news to give you! I am so excited! I cannot tell you how much I am bursting at the seams! Here is everything(eek!!!!) !!!

My Internet is back on two days earlier than it was supposed to be! Yes! I can finally, finally post.

Christmas is tomorrow! Whoohooo! After 365 days of waiting patiently.....

I have been awfully awfully sick since Thursday. Here's some evidence:
-My temperature went from 101 to 103 to 99 to 100 to 98 and I think something else, too.
-I was so dizzy over the weekend I felt as if I was going to collapse when we stood up.
-I have taken two liquid medications multiple times(I felt like barfing), and one pill.
-I went to the doctor and had all these measurements.
-My parents say I have never been this sick before.

Let's just say that I felt like dog food digested by a cat.

But..... On the bright side;


I know! I know! I have known since the start of December. I have been waiting for this moment where we are in the house to drop the bomb. Yes!!!!

The house is delightful.


I like it.


Merry Christmas! And a Happy New Year!

And belated Kwanzaa/Hanukkah. All that good stuff!!!!

Here is the mega problem of computer life:

-Internet is down on my laptop, I am using my Dad's computer because he just so happens to be in the kitchen.

-I will not be having Internet connection from the 21st until about a week's worth due to computer re locations at our home.....not fun.

-Also, I have had one test today, I will have one tomorrow, I am running a timed mile tomorrow, Project due Monday, Project AND test due on Tuesday. On top of it all, one of my best friend is having a birthday tomorrow(really Saturday, though.) This is the only good piece of news I bring you.

-I am upset, and please do not anger yourself because of my future lack of posts.
My next post might even be in 2008...

Missing my blog life:
Ellie. :(

Dorkier by the Minute.

Once again, I was being a geeky nerd-dork. Not really, but it sounded kind of cool. Anyways, I was sitting on the floor next to our coffee table. My dad has been sick lately and he was in the room. He coughed, sneezed, yawned..all that good stuff. When...all of the sudden...I sneezed.

Not just any sneeze, though! So strong, that my glasses flew straight off of my face!! It was unbelievable. I was like...woah...super sneezing strength equipped to sneeze the world away!

It was quite awkward when I looked up and saw a blurry figure called Dad is practically gagging himself to keep back snickers from watching my little "episode'. Quite interesting. Quite interesting, indeed.

Just thought I had to share that with you. comes Monday. Wish my luck with beginning the week!!!

Good luck to yours, too!

Sometimes I Frighten Myself.

Tal, you are absolutely right! Why go through life worrying about the things we dislike? Where is that going to lead us? Considering your poetic ways, I decided to write my own poem. Please respect the following words and refrain for comments I might not want to hear. Appreciated.

The tantalizing creature beckons to you.
Temptation becomes too captivating.
It smiles devilishly, capturing your every thoughts.
Sensational in its exotic ways.
Tension escalates until a sole choice is yours and yours only.
Will you answer to its desperate calls?
Has its grip gotten to such a challenging state?
I say yes; eat the tootsie roll!

I know, I know, stuuuuuuuuupid ending. I was really in the mood for tootsie rolls, so I wrote it down while I was eating one. I thought that I should go ahead and post it.

As for the title of this post, I reached a whole new level of weirdness.


Here we go..

I actually shampooed and conditioned my eyebrows.
Not while I was in the shower, but just a little while ago. I was talking to the mirror, and all of the sudden, I just had to groom my eyebrows! It was the most awkward thing that I ever did. I am okay with that, though. I AM UNIQUE!

Back, Finally,

Thanks for the wonderful comments. It feels for good to be back and posting. Homework has got me so stressed lately! I got my grades today, and I did excellent....except...for physical education. Darn it..... I hate that subject. I actually thought I was doing pretty good. whatever...

Top ten things I hate

10. A meal for dinner I dislike.
9. Missing a fav t.v. show or marathon.
8. Giving up a Friday for homework.
7. Giving up a Saturday for homework.
6. Reading Charles Dickens(not bad...just too confusing. same with Shakespeare).
5. Clipping my fingernails to short.
4. When I can't fall asleep.
3. Doing bad at school.
2. Physical education/people who are good at it.
1. Homework that is slowly killing me.

Other things i hate/dislike:

-This girl I know who is super good at physical education(yet still happens to be popular.)
-When I have a bloody nose for absolutely no reason.
-Setting the table .
-Waking up early on weekends.
-Homework on the weekends
-Studying for a super hard test.
-Writing and all of the sudden your pencil breaks.
-Writing and all of the sudden your pen explodes and all this ink splurts out.
-When your foot, back, or some other unreachable area starts to itch, tickle, etc.

More later....

Back on the House Hunt

Okay, so. We are back on the house hunt. We have seen multiple ads in the newspaper for things we would like to check out. We are already going over to see one later in the evening. Yay! Please please please be a good house!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Please....

On a completely different note.....

Today is Rachel's Birthday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy Birthday bestest friend!!!!

Okay, moving on, once again.

Have you heard of the Delany sisters? I just read the book "Having our Say" and it was tremendously great! I would recommend it to anyone mature enough to read it(I do not mean this offensively). They are two out of ten African children telling their story about the good life until segregation, feeling left out , fighting for their rights, and "living forever". Hope you check them out sometime.
