While I'm On the Subject...

of the funniest websites of all time, I was just looking at textsfromlastnight.com and absolutely laughed out loud. I've posted about this site a while ago, but in case you missed it, basically people send in funny text messages they've received. The number is the parentheses is the area code it came from.

I can't stop laughing, really.

(870): You called information & said "connect me to johnny depp" when they told u it wasn't listed u said " try depp comma johnny he's expecting my call"

(541): my math teacher staples burger king applications to failed tests

My New Favorite Website

The People of Wal-Mart. You know them, you've all seen them. I know I've sent some of you funny pictures from Wal-Mart before, if you still have them, send them back to me...I need to submit them.

Here is a sample from the site. If you weren't going to go before, you will now.

So I Was Trying to Sleep

But the wheels are turning. I'm in a creative writing class this semester, and so far I hate it. I shouldn't hate it already, because I've only had two classes and haven't given it much of a chance, so I'll keep an open mind, but as of now, I hate it. When I thought about creative writing, I didn't think I would be writing poetry. I figured that this blog was a type of creative writing. I mean I get on here and talk about whatever I want. I know it's not formal, and it's not even good, but it's my own expression, that's how I see creative writing. I can't wrap my mind around the point of there being good and bad poetry, or right and wrong poetry. Isn't that up to the writer? Isn't it all our interpretation? I don't like creativity. I like facts. I like the date the war started and the date it ended. I like concrete facts. I do not like trying to pull emotion out of words that mean nothing to me, feelings I don't understand.

Joshua likes poetry, and even though I've never seen anything he's written (because he writes when he's mad at me), I'm pretty sure he's good at it. I've been asking him questions about poetry every ten minutes since the class started. I told him that I have nothing to write about. I've never been to war, I've never lost all of my belongings in a fire, I've never been heartbroken, I feel like I'm too happy to write good poetry. He told me to write about how I felt on our wedding day.

Which brings me to another topic...engaged females. I am absolutely not talking about any of my friends here, I'm talking about the rest of the world. My friends have it together, and understand life and marriage, other girls don't. That is why you're my friends, and they are not.

A girl I work with is in her best friend's wedding next month. I was looking at her best friends Facebook profile and in the little box where it says "Write something about yourself", she wrote "September 18 is going to be the best day of my life"...or something like that. I don't know if that's the right date or not, but it really doesn't matter. For her sake, and every other female getting married, I hope that your wedding is not the greatest day of your entire life. What a disappointment. I personally hope I haven't had my greatest day yet. I am saving that day for the birth of our children, their first words, or their graduation. I'm not saying that our wedding day wasn't a great day, because it was a wonderful day. I wouldn't change a thing, but the thing is, I don't know how I felt. I know I was happy, but I was so excited that everything was a blur, and then it was over.

If I had to pick the one day of my life so far that is the greatest day I've ever had, it would be the day after our wedding. May 17, 2009.

I can tell you exactly how I felt that day. It was wonderful. A different kind of wonderful than our wedding day. I feel like that Sunday went in slow motion, just so I could remember how perfect it was. I can remember how it felt to be called Mrs. for the first few times, how it felt to have my husband look at me...it was different than before, and how relaxed we instantly were. It was absolutely the best day of my life...except that we didn't really do anything special.

I know we got up to Nate knocking on our door, Josh took Nate over to his moms house to look for his missing belongings. I cleaned up the house a bit to get ready for everyone coming over to open gifts. Then everyone showed up, we had breakfast, sat and talked, and everyone left. We went to Sam's to get dog food so that they could be fed while we were gone. We came home and Chris and Jeremy came to get a hat that was left at our house, and we were locked out, so my dad had to come over to let us back in. Then he took Josh's tux back, and we packed and left for our honeymoon around six. It seems odd that there wasn't some big event to make it the greatest day around, but it was all the same.

If you want to help, I would greatly appreciate any advice anyone has about reading or writing poetry. I really could use all the help I can get. And if I can give anyone some advice, please don't count on your wedding being the best day of your whole life. It is only one day, and hopefully your marriage will be the rest of every day you're alive.

What matters is what life is like once you take off the fancy clothes, and live.

I Un-quit

So take that. In this previous post, I quit Facebook and scratched it off of my goal list. I however, got back on Facebook, so I am reverting the goal back to it's prior status of "incomplete".

Also, if you're keeping up with my 101 things to do in 1001 days, I just updated it, but mostly everything that has been updated there has been posted about here. Check it out if you're interested in my progress, or lack of progress.


You all know how important breakfast is for the entire day, right? I've said it here before. I love breakfast, but I have always hated orange juice. I could correct that, I've always hated plain orange juice, but orange juice with tequila in it is my favorite. :) I'm not even really sure why I tried it, but I tried plain orange juice a few weeks ago, and I love it. I drink it all the time now. I have a glass with breakfast, but don't worry, I haven't given up my coffee...gotta stay awake.

Anniversary Cake

This weekend my parents celebrated their 27th wedding anniversary. I didn't really know what to get them, so I made them this cake and then took them out for lunch. We had a good time, and the cake was awesome. :)

Love It

Megan invited me up to her lake this weekend for dinner. I really don't like driving on those lake roads, because they're so confusing, and usually not marked well...so I was really really concentrating on her directions on my way up there. I didn't notice all these trees until I was on my way home. I literally stopped my car in the middle of the road to take these pictures. I love them.

Saturday was a fun day. We went out to lunch with my parents for their wedding anniversary and then I went up to Megan's lake for dinner...and it was fabulous.

Unfortunately, I can't give any details about how any of this was made...because I don't have a clue. However, as soon as Megan gives me the link to her food blog I will post it so everyone can see. :)
You love me, Megan.

Wedding Weekend

We had Nick and Erika's wedding to go to this weekend. Apparently I am a failure and operating a camera, so all of my pictures really suck.

This is when Nick first saw her.

Mr. & Mrs. Jarrell :)

Nick's dance with his mother.

The cake. Yum. :)
Me and my super happy husband.

My Watchdog

I had to move my hammock the other day because the sun was shining on my reading spot. Joshua trimmed our trees, so I had to pull my hammock and share Amico's tree. Either I make him nervous, or he just wants me to pet him, but he can't relax while I'm out there. He watches me the entire time.

Joshua's No Good, Awful Bad Day

I tried to warn him.

We are trying to use my car as little as possible because I guess I'm in serious need of new tires. Joshua has been taking his motorcycle to work and I've been using his truck. Last Monday rain was predicted, so he took his truck and I used my car. No problem. It didn't rain a drop on Monday. Go figure. Tuesday was predicted to be sunny and clear all day long, so he took his motorcycle to work. At 3:00pm...precisely the time Josh was due to get out of work, this little thing popped up.

Josh works near the black dot to the north, and we live near the black dot to the south.

Needless to say, he was completely soaked when he got home. I felt so bad for him.

Joshua's Car

If you knew Josh in high school, you would know he had this car. I mean this exact car. I actually almost bet Josh $100 that this was his old car. He swears it isn't, I think someone bought it and fixed it up. I asked Josh's mom and she thinks his cousin still has the car...but what are the chances of there being two of these in Fort Wayne? I'm still not convinced.

William is 5!

I can't believe how fast time goes. My brother William turned 5 on Saturday, so I made his cake. He had a party at Chuckie Cheese (where else??). He loved his cake. We had to leave before they cut the cake, but my mom said there wasn't much left. It was funfetti (which is vanilla with sprinkles). It's Josh's favorite cake, and I made it because we had it in the cabinet and I didn't have time to go to the store. It's good though. :)
