I’ll be going to the Christmas fair with mom, my sister, and a friend of there’s tomorrow. I think we’re supposed to meet the lady around 11 tomorrow morning, not sure how long we’ll be there. Why I said yes to this, I have no idea. Oh well, maybe I’ll actually start my Christmas shopping, (which I haven’t done yet.) I just hope we won’t be spending all day there, because usually I get tired of it after about 2-3 hours.

I walked 30 minutes on the tredmill today. When I used to go to the Y with mom, we used to do a half hour on the tredmill, and the other half hour was strength training. I can’t believe it’s been 2 years since wikileaks started releasing cables! 2 years ago yesterday, (that is.) A lot has happened in the last 2 years, and although they’ve gone by fast, they’ve also gone by really slow, (as in there’s been a lot of waiting for things.)

Did you buy anything online during Cyber Monday? Did you get a deal? I didn’t buy anything online on Monday, or black Friday either. If I do any shopping, I usually do do it online. It doesn’t really matter if it’s Cybre Monday or black Friday, I stil buy a lot of my stuff online. I usually only go to the store a couple times near the end of the month, to get stocking stuff, or stuff for someone I don’t have a gift for. Via That’s my answer.

I went to her house to waok on her tredmill, and I’m going to start doing this on a regular basis. Because I offered to buy it from her and she said no, but she’ll take me to her house to use it. Yeah, I’m still up and I probably should be in bed, (lol.) I like staying up late, and getting up early for some reason, (although I didn’t get to sleep until like 1 or 2 last night, even though I got to bed around 12.) Hopefully that won’t happen again tonight though, because it wasn’t much fun. Oh yeah, I was able to walk on the tredmill for like 20 minutes, which is close to what we used to do at the Y, (a half hour.) I think I’ll get there fairly soon.

Lol, for skipping the newsletter that is. I couldn’t decide on whether I should do it or not, (I didn’t have any links ready at all, and I had a major headache yesterday,) so I decided to skip it for this weekend. I’ll get back to doing it next week though, (and hopefully I’ll be more prepared.) Mom, my sister, my dad, and my sister’s boyfriend went to get their trees today, while I was at church. Nothing much else went on today, and actually I wasn’t sure if I should skip the newsletter all this week. I couldn’t really decide, so finally I was just like oh well, it’s after 8… whatever.)

We only have one service at church tomorrow morning, at 10:00. So when I called mom, and she asked if I wanted to go with them to cut down their Christmas tree at a friend of my sister’s boyfriend’s property at like 10 in the morning, I said no, both because I want to go to church tomorrow, and because I get to decorate my own Christmas tree!For those who don’t know, I have one of those fake, prelit trees that goes up every year, and comes down, (without any cutting to have to worry about, of course.) In past years we’ve gone to the tree lot, (like at WalMart or something,) but this year they’re actually going to cut the tree down. We used to do that when we were little, we would take a trip into the woods with a group of friends, and all come home with Christmas trees.
Friday, November 23, 2012
My mom and my sister probably did at some point, but I didn’t. Because I never usually do, (although I’d lie to once, just for fun.) I have ordered stuff online on Black Friday before, but I didn’t this year though. My mom paid me $150 of the $600 they owe me yesterday, and dad said he was going to give me some more money next week. I’m not sure when I’ll start my Christmas shopping, probably sometime in the next couple weeks or so. I think I already know what I’m getting my sister and my niece, I just need to figure out stuff for my mom, dad, and grandma.

I forgot to post when I got back from my parent’s house earlier. I’m about to go to bed, so I just wanted to say that I hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving! Ours went well, I ended up uploading a picture to Facebook while I was at my parent’s house, (I was using my 3G data, and my Bluetooth keyboard,) and it took forever! We didn’t have any weird incidents with turkey, (like we have in years past,) so I’d say things went fairly well. We ate around 4, which is when we usually eat, (mom put the turkey in sometime between 12 and 1.)

Have you ever been to the Macy’s Day parade? No I haven’t, but I’d like to get there someday, along with the NewYears eve ball drop. I do watch the parade every year though, and I’ll be watching it tomorrow, or as much as I can before I have to leave for my parent’s. Via that’s my answerI’m not sure what time I’ll be leaving tomorrow, but it will probably be around 12 or so, (hopefully.)
Tuesday, November 20, 2012
My mom started work yesterday, she works part time for the hospital here, and I’m not really sure of everything she does. Part of it is going to imaging centers, (where they do scans and such,) and observing tests, so they know what to order, (I’m assuming she’s talking about prescriptions.) I asked her if she had to work on Thursday, (because, you know, starting a job is weird because sometimes you have to work all the holidays,) and she said no, she has Thursday and Friday off. In fact, can we just skip tomorrow and get right to Thursday? I’m looking forward to it very much! My grandma won’t be here this year, (she has different plans,) so it will be just us.
Sunday, November 18, 2012
So first I decided I was going to skip this post, then I changed my mind and decided against skipping it. I only did this after spending way too much time on Reddit, and realizing that I should probably get myself to bed so I don’t oversleep tomorrow morning. I didn’t send out my newsletter until like 6:30 tonight, because I ended up falling asleep after TWiT was over, then I woke up and was like crap, I still have to do the newsletter! Yay for procrastination I guess, but I like doing it around that time, as long as I don’t do what I did tonight, (lol!)

Not the title or the label that is, but the body of the post. Because I had to go to the question site to find a question, copy and paste it in, then type my answer. That was all in there when I hit “publish” last night, but somehow it wasn’t there today. I’m not really sure why that happened, because I didn’t need to go back and fix the post or anything, but that’s what I had to do today. I never had anything like that happen with the old interface, (sure, there were times I accidentally hit “save” instead of “publish,” but that doesn’t seemm to be an option. If I would have hit “revert to draft,” everything would have disappeared. Of course only the body of the post was missing. Bleh, I’m not really a huge fan of the new Blogger.

Are you participating in a Secret Santa or holiday gift exchange this year? I’m actually participating in a couple of them this year. The one with my family, (of course,) and the white elephant gift exchange for the healing rooms Christmas party. I suggested that we draw names in our family once, (because even though mom complains about Christmas being too expensive every year, she goes overboard all the time,) but they didn’t like my suggestion. I wanted to participated in the Reddit secret santa, but maybe next year. Via That’s my answer

I also got to eat fried chicken, rice, potato salad, and deviled eggs. My friend let me walk on her tredmill, I was on there for about 20 minutes before I was like I probably should get off now. Her boyfriend decided to try to teach me how to play guitar, but uh… I lack a lot of skill in that department. We got there around 3:30, and it must have taken her about an hour to cut my hair. Then we took turns with the tredmill while her boyfriend was cooking, of course we ate after that obviously. I brought my phone so she could take after pictures of my hair, I wouldn’t let her take before pictures, as they wouldn’t be worth posting.

I finally sent my Christmas list out today. I wanted to write: “I’m finally sending out this ridiculous thing! Oh and since I loaned my parents $600 for their property taxes, I won’t be starting my shopping until next month!” But I decided not to write that because well… the list went out to my momm, my grandma, and my sister. I’m just glad to get it sent out! Tomorrow, I’ll be going over to my friend’s house, so she can cut my hair. I think we’re going to do it around dinner time, and her and her boyfriend will be having me over for dinner.
Tuesday, November 13, 2012
I need to ad one more thing to my Christmas list before I send it out. The problem is, I can’t think of what that one more thing should be. I don’t usually have this much trouble making lists, but it’s different with this one. I can think of lots of things to put on the list, but I’m 99.9% sure I won’t get them, so that’s why I’m only sending 10 things instead of 20 this time. I know this, because I’ve put them on the list in the past, and not gotten them. But last year, I didn’t put a phone on the list, (even though I wanted one,) and I got a phone. When I told mom I wasn’t going to send a list she said, “you’re hard to buy for.” I obviously think it’s the other way around, she’s hard to buy for, because she never makes a list. I make a list, and I’m still “hard to buy for?” that doesn’t make any sense to me, but OK.

I prayed for like 3 people in the healing rooms today. What I also managed to do is deliver my testimony like a speech for the first time! I did have someone there to prompt me, just in case I got lost, but it flowed way more like a speech this time than it usually does. I told everyone that I won’t have it so easy next time, (lol, I’ll actually have to prepare a lesson,) instead of just altering something that was already written and using it.
Sunday, November 11, 2012
I’ll be sharing my testimony at healing rooms tomorrow morning, before our monthly lunchon. I sent it to the lady who helps runt the healing rooms, and asked her to print it. I talked to her yesterday, and she said she did, so that’s good. She also said she could ask me questions if I want, (and that’s probably what I’ll have her do, because I’m still not ready to deliver it like a speech.) I got a ride to church today from a couple from healing rooms, if it wasn’t for them taking me to church, I wouldn’t have had a ride. I’ve been able to go to church at least 4, (and maybe 5,) Sundays straight since I stopped riding the bus.
Friday, November 9, 2012
I’ve been attempting to type my testimony into a 750 words entry, so that the process of transcription can speed things up. I’ve done this with various speeches before, and it seemed to work, so I was attempting it with this one. Half way through, 750 words decided that it would like to slow everything down by forever though, making it hard to type. So I decided to finish the second half tomorrow, in a second 750 words entry. I think I’ve figured out why my CenturyLink transactions aren’t going through, (these are the only ones being declined,) these are the payments to Verizon. In short, their online system is an epic failure, and it isn’t receiving the correct information from my bank. It seemed to go through over the phone though, so hopefully it actually will.

I have to share my testimony at healing rooms on Monday. We were going to do it at the lunchon, but it’s too loud, and not all that easy to do things like that in the restaurant. The problem is, I keep forgetting that I need to prepare for this. I think I know why, and you can thank a certain person, who decided to change the way I deal with speeches and treat the whole thing like an interview, for that one. Now I’ve gotten myself into this habbit, and it’s a hard one to break. When I was first asked to share my testimony, this person wanted it done within 2-3 weeks, which by normal standards would have probably been fine. The last big speech I gave, (besides my grandpa’s eulogy,) was my graduation speech at OSB, and I took a month to write it, and a month to practice it, and get it just right. I wrote the testimony, and within a couple weeks, I was sharing it for the first time, while it was still not fully revised, (I’m still making revisions to this day.) I’m not talking about revisions for errors and such, those are pretty much long gone, (and delt with in the first revisions,) but things that make it sound better as a speech. I used to actually enjoy writing, practicing, and delivering speeches, but I don’t really like where this has gone. Of course one could argue, (as my friend does,) that we don’t call it a “speech,” we call it a “testimony,” fine, what I’m saying is that I used to enjoy the acts of preparation and delivery in general, but now, since I don’t really have all that much time, (I was just asked to do this instead of my lesson a couple weeks ago, it’s kind of like, “let’s hurry up and do this already!”

What is your smartphone of choice? I use an iPhone, not because I’m a huge Apple fan, but because that’s probably the most accessible one, and that’s the one I got for Christmas last year. Don’t get me wrong, I was extremely excited to get it as a Christmas Gift! But that doesn’t mean I’m going to switch to everything Apple either. Via That’s my answer.

Tonight was interesting. The election itself only lasted about 4 hours, (from the time polls started closing until the time we had a winner,) and 4 years ago I seem to remember it lasting like 2 hours. It took 2 hours for the speeches to start though, and I decided to wait for those. The president just got done speaking, thus the blog post at 11 at night. I’ve been awake since like 6 this morning, I’m ready to go to bed! Grocery shopping went well today, except for the fact that my pharmacy failed to give me one of my prescriptions.
Monday, November 5, 2012
Healing rooms was slow today, only 2 people came in for prayer. We had different leaders today, so that was interesting. I’m not sure if the director and his wife will be back next week or not, if not the people who led this week will lead again next week. When I got home, I looked at my phone to realize I missed a call from my mother. Mom doesn’t usually call me unless she has a computer question, we’re going somewhere, or we’re planning what to get someone for birthday/Christmas/holiday of the month. While I was on the phone with mom, my sister was calling me, which was even more unusual. Although my sister did butt dial me on accident a couple weeks ago, (and I thought that might be what it was, but it turned out she was calling to guilt trip me for saying no to my dad about the $600 yesterday, and I’m sure that’s why mom was calling too, (although she didn’t mention it at first.) When I confronted my sister, and told her I knew what she was doing, she said: “I’m not calling to guilt trip you.” lol! I think i know better, am I that devoid of reason that I’d thinkk you were just calling to lecture me for fun?

At 8:30 this morning, someone knocked on my door to tell me the bus was here. The problem is that I don’t ride the bus anymore, and haven’t for like 4 weeks, (I thought after 3, they’d take me off the list.) I yelled through the door that I was going to second service, but she didn’t hear me and was like, is there anyone home? I didn’t want to open the door but I had to because she wouldn’t stop. I opened the door and told her I’d be going to second service, and she had no idea what I was talking about. I had to repeat it twice, which was weird, because I was very obviously not ready to go to first service, and here I was standing at the door in what I normally wear around the house. I talked to someone who rides the bus when I was at church, and he said they just asked someone outside who said she lived here. Whether or not she actually did, or whether they sent a random stranger from the street to knock on doors until she found me, (she said she didn’t know me, not that I know everyone in the complex,) is ridiculous, especially if you consider that they probably waited around 15 to 20 minutes. Why could I never get them to wait when I rode the bus? It makes absolutely no sense whatsoever! I got a call from my dad this afternoon, which was weird because dad never calls me unless we’re going somewhere or there’s some kind of emergency. He said, “I have an important question to ask you.” He proceeded to ask if he could borrow $600, and I said no. When are my parent’s going to learn to stop calling and asking me for money? Yeah, I could have give him the $600, but I haven’t paid my bills for this month yet, so I’d be pretty low by the end. Not only that, but I’d find it pretty hard to aford Christmas presents next month if I gave him the money!
Saturday, November 3, 2012
A different person is picking me up for church tomorrow, but she called eme earlier today and told me she couldn’t bring me home, because she has something to do after church. I called a couple that also goes to the healing rooms, and they’ll be taking me home. I didn’t send out the newsletter today, because it wasn’t ready, I need to get more links ready. I’ll probably do that tomorrow morning before church.
Friday, November 2, 2012
Not much went on here today. I was going to go to healing rooms tomorrow morning, but it had to be canceled. The director’s wife’s mom had a stroke yesterday, she passed away. They’re going to California to be with the family. One of the ladies that helps run it will probably be picking me up for Sunday church, or at least that’s the plan right now. I’m hoping she won’t call me and tell me she can’t pick me up at the last minute.
