A Little Sad

Surprise! I'm moving. We all are. Marriages are a good thing, right? I wish them luck, but I will miss my roomies! More than I can even express. I hate this new adventure, but I guess everything happens for a reason. Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together. I will miss late nights talking as we sit on the kitchen counters. The spot by the stairs. Piling on the bed to all watch a movie or talk about far fetched plans, dreams, and ridiculous things. Canoeing trips, Park City retreats, concerts, Idaho trips, the occasional party, Boggle and Sequence. Tiffany scaring me in the dark hallway. Mitzi's blow dryer as my alarm clock. Driving and singing in the car with Kimberly. Playing the guitar with Shanley. I feel like my little family is being split apart. Like we're orphans being sent to different parents. It makes me really sad and my eyes just keep leaking. A lot. Good thing we have plans already to hang out, but somehow it's just not the same. Girls, I love your guts and will miss living with you more than you'll ever know! I heart you!

It's kind of been a crappy week. Things just have been out of whack. But today, as I was watching the news, I watched them report about the devastation in Haiti. They showed a primary school that was as flat as a pancake. 700 students were inside, and there was no activity or movement. They are all considered dead. I started bawling right then and there. Things could be worse, always. Things are just things, and money is worthless. I am seriously blessed beyond belief.

Dear 2010

I hate you. You've been nothing but stressful. Full of resolutions, unexpected expenses, doctor visits, car repairs, broken parts, moving worries, and now a smashed laptop screen. And that's in 12 days. Go back where you came from.
I know, right?! What does it make me want to do? I know! I'll put it in a box. Then I'll put that box in another box. Then I'll mail it to myself, and when it arrives, muaahahahaaa, I'll smash it with a hammer! Warranty should cover that, right?

Nine days. It's been nine days since I've had any carbonated or caffeinated beverage. Today was a little difficult, but then I read an article online at Apparently, forty-eight percent of soda fountains (the best kind of soda) are contaminated with fecal matter. I'm miraculously cured from wanting soda. And that was even before they mentioned E. coli and meningitis. Cured.

Good Goal!

So, the other night, which just happened to be Dec. 31, my roomies and I were at dinner and were chatting about our resolutions for the year. This is kind of how part of our conversation went:
Me: My goal is to only hit the snooze button once. Okay, maybe twice.
Them: Maybe you should just go to bed earlier.
Me: Yeah! Okay, so I'll be in bed every night before one.
Them: We are proud of you! That's a good goal!
Me: (Feeling all goalish) Hey, I should make it eleven!
Them: *Laughing, laughing, laughing* Are you kidding yourself? Let's be realistic!

So, here's what my goals are for this year, at least to start. I'm going to add more goals as I go along. Baby steps! I'm going to go to bed before one, and I've given up drinking soda. Hey, it's been six whole days! Yeah, my class laughed at me, but I'm going to do it. I figure both of these goals go together. The later I stay up, the more I want a soda the next day. So, if I get to bed earlier, then the less I'll want a soda. It's working so far. Stay tuned.
