I smiled when I read her posts, wishing in my head that I knew her, that we were best friends. But unless I wrote a blog post to her, I wouldn't be able to contact her.
It only just occured to me to write her a blog post, after I logged on and saw that I had one follower less then yesterday.
Too late. Good bye Saira, I dearly hope someday that you find this, that you know why I never contacted you. I hope that your costume sewing continues to go well. Love you girl. I'm sorry.

So of course in my mind I had to tell the story of why the girls in the photo glare. They glare because their step father continuosly intrudes apon then. When he comes in, they stop what they are doing, glare at him, and don't go back to what they were doing until he leaves.
And yeah..I just happened to find a stuffed animal. -_-
VOTE ON THE POLLS!

"aha I'm home schooled, of course I don't!" hehe just kidding, thats not how it happened. I had decieded to skip speed skating because I wasn't feeling like 2 hours of brutal exercise. So we went out for Chinese food! And since we got the buffe, we figured we might as well try some new things...
Yes, it was really gross. I also tried fried zucini, which was too bad, and I tried some fish which was actually pretty good. I also tried this weird looking fruit, but...no. Ew. haha, but you should always try new food, because you could find a new favorite!
So now we move on to Saturday (today:) We went to our friends lovely home/house/farm to help move furniture, and to celebrate not one, not two, but three birthdays that are on the same day. The twins are turning two, and Anna is turning 8.

The first to go will be this lovely genuine leather trench. The special feature? The fasteners are keys!
And of course since she got it for a steal, you're going to get it dirt cheap.
There are more details on her blog, so head on over and check it out!

But seriously, I've had a fever for five days. *gasp* After throwing on my ugliest sweet pants (aoropostal) and my t-shirt, the only thing I have changed since Friday, is socks and underwear and ya know, that other thing girls wear. I skipped work on Saturday, I stayed home from church on Sunday, yesterday I skipped my IOTC class. I don't have anything planned for today except sucking on mints and reading the odyssey. Now before you get to thinking I'm smart, 1.I had to good odyssey because I still can't spell it. 2.As I read my mind is thinking about everything BUT the odyssey 3.I have to use cliff notes to make sense of it all (mostly because I'm usually not paying attention as I read) (BUNNY)
So because nothing is new with my outfits, I figure I'll blog spam you with some things I've been thinking about lately.
-At my church, all the children are home schooled. This often wards off visitors. People will say they thought about coming, but they would feel out of it because they don't home school. It is not required that they home school, and I myself, and my friends from church, have public school friends who are very near and dear to us. The truth is that not every family is cut out for home schooling, and its possible that God has not called some people to home school. But just because you don't home school, doesn't mean you shouldn't come to our church.
Actually if you think about it, the reason we don't have public/private schoolers at our church is because of the people who don't come for that reason. If they came we would. (This all makes sense in my head)
Meh well, I guess I'll never take a step out of my front door because everybody else in my neighborhood is public schooled.
But I guess, b+a=c, and a+b doesn't.
I'm really not trying to bash anyone. But I've just been thinking about all this lately. People may think that we are excluding them, but really they are excluding themselves.
I mean all the time, every where I am surrounded ONLY by public/private schoolers, do I feel out of place? Well of course not. Do I feel pressed to go home and sit in my room all day and never go anywhere? No, no I'm quite the social butterfly. But I'm also REALLY shy. Just ignore that contradiction. It makes sense when you know me personally.
See the thing about being home schooled:
I don't go to your school, so I'm not going to help with popularity
I'm not learning at the same pace as you, whether it be slower, or faster, so I can't really help you get good grades.
I can't go to school with you, and stand up to the school bullies for you. I can't help you deal with the mean girls.
But I can be there for you when you come home crying because your 'friends' ditched you. I can be there for you when the kids on the street are making fun of your report card. I can be there for you and show you how to throw some really good punches, and I can listen when you talk about how that girl really hurt you today, and assure you that the things she said aren't true.
Yeah, and I'm never going to stop telling you to watch your mouth.
And just as you ask me about if I wear pajamas to school, I'm going to bombard you with questions about your uniform, and the school dances.
Anyway, please pray for healing!

Today I woke up with a sore throat, an aching back, a head ache, and a cough.
I took some Ibuprofen, got dressed, brushed my teeth-also took some super tonic-homeopathic thing.
From 10-12ish I was at the library, doing school with my friend, and then eating lunch. From the library, we headed strait to a little town close to where I live for our home school co-op.
-visit with friends till mom is ready to go.
We stopped by taco bell and I got a chalupa. When we got home I got ready for speed skating, and then left. I ate my chalupa on the way to practice. After a 2 hour work out, I came home.
Writing this makes me think of the blessings I had today. I got to wake up in a warm house, in a comfy bed, with warm blankets. I had medicine available. I get to do school with one of my best friends and her family, and my family. I don't have to wake up at 5 to get ready to go to school. I have a good public library. I have teachers who care about my education, and want me to excel. I got to draw with crayons. I got to have some of my favorite food! I have skates. I'm not a vegetable. I have team mates who want to help me, and do. I have a helmet. I got to ride in a heated car. I got an A on my paper. :P
Of course there are many more, but I'm tired, and it would take me about forever to list all of my blessings.
Praise the Lord!
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

Today's outfit photos come 1. From my back yard and 2.from my bedroom. I took my photos quickly! Why? I was freezing my but off...need I say more?
heh, I remind myself of a little girl at my church (we had lots of fun playing together yesterday:)
Today is day 4 of Natasha's modest online fashion week thingy. :D It is also the third day in a row I've painted with my lovely water colors! I surprise myself with having a tiny bit of talent. Yesterday I painted the rivers clapping hands, and today I painted the mountains singing.
Psalm 98:8 Let the rivers clap their hands; Let the hills be joyful together before the Lord.
Some versions say hills be joyful, some talk about the mountains singing. Hill, mountain, POOHtato Patato. hehe. BOO!nana, Banana. Purple, Poiple. Personally, Poisonally. Bonjoir, Ola, Hello, Hey, What's up? How do you do?
Velvety Jacket: Christmas gift
Tights: Kohls~FREE~I do like promotional objects found in the mail...such as little cardboard $10.00 fake money. (Of course, those federal reserve notes are some pretty funny money too. Not that any of us are laughing.)
Shoes: Yard sale~$2.00~Mother's treat
Sorry, when I press enter it double spaces for some reason I do not know.
Hope you have a lovely day! L<3ved

On the roof. Look at that beautiful sky! It was so clear, I spotted the little dipper (one of the two constolations I know) when I arrived home from the IOTC (Institute on the Constitution) class. It made me want to grab my telecope and scan the mid-night sky.
A few of these photos, were not taken on the roof, but on the entrace to a trail that runs off the library propery. I would have also taken a photo with a lake in the back ground, but I noticed the sign that boldly declaired "PRIVATE LAKE NO TRESPASSING"
I feel so poetic and happy today, but its mingled with sadness. My sister and I have some very dear friends, one who just moved, and another who is planning to move at the end of this month, or the begining of next.
I very much enjoy being a weirdo.
