Love in the Air

How sweet! Andy and Sherilyn are officially dating. Isn't that cute!?! I think they make an adorable couple, personally. Yesterday was Andy's birthday, just a little tidbit of info for you.

Michael and Linda Schaub had their baby! And it was born on my birthday! Her name is Rachael Elizabeth. And Michael got to be there for it and everything. I think that's cute.

I'm leaving to go to Indiana tomorrow to visit my grandparents on Mom's side. Mamaw and Papaw do not have a computer so I won't be able to update until I get back, which will be Sunday. So see you guys Sunday!

Busy Bloggers

HEY! All you people out in bloggerdom! Am I the only one who updates at least once week? Maybe you people are too busy to post. That means you probably have all kinds of stuff you have been doing that you could tell the rest of us about. My life isn't overly exciting but I post!
Get to updating!

Sweet Seventeen?

Okey-doke. So do I feel older? Not really. I do feel a little wiser, more .... what is the word? Experienced? Oh well. Anyway, we did go to Bruster's last night and I got Birthday Cake ice cream as planned. My sinuses are actually much better today, btw. I got a turquoise watch that is water resistant, the "It's Time" Michael Buble cd, and an electric razor. Don't laugh. It's sooo much easier to shave with an electric one. (I'm sure everyone just loved that) jk. And Kyle says that he ordered something for me over the internet, but it won't be here for a couple more days. So I'm waiting on a mystery present. Today, we'll probably go out to eat to celebrate my birthday.
Last Friday, we went to Famous Dave's Barbecue, and our waiter kept asking us if we wanted dessert. He finally said that if it was anyone's birthday, we could get a free ice cream. I laughed and told him my birthday was a week from that day. He said that it was close enough and soon, there was a free ice cream sitting in front of me with a neat little sparkler in it. I think they're the only restaurant that does that. The waiter said that he liked that better than singing.
Some older guy sitting at the table in front of us asked me "25?"
I just laughed and shook my head. "26?" I shook my head. He guessed again. "21?"
"No," I said and laughed again.
"Is it a secret?" so I told him "17." He said "No one's that young. "
I guess he's been too old for too long.

Happy Birthday to Me!

Yay! It's my birthday today! I'm seventeen years old now. What an accomplishment! I feel older already! lol
Anyhoo, besides all that, I got to go to Ohio Youth Camp for a couple days. That was really great, and I got to see all these people who actually remembered me- amazing!-and I had a blast. We went out several times with different groups and joked around and watched everybody play games and laughed at Johnathan Glick and Ricky Bourne who are absolutely crazy. I got to see some of my old friends from youth camps gone by and got to hang out with some really cool people. The services were really awesome and the spirit of the Lord was really there. I'm so glad I got to go!
I'm doing better and haven't had any attacks for about a week now. My sinus infection is slowly starting to clear up, so keep praying for me! I know ice cream isn't the best thing for someone with sinus problems but we're getting Bruster's tonight for my birthday. Yay!

Ohio Youth Camp!

No dear readers, I did not suddenly get healed, although that would be kind of nice. My sinus is starting to clear up a little and I haven't had any more attacks, knock on wood. However, I'm not going up for the whole camp, just for today and tomorrow. This means that I will miss our sofball game, but after a long and hard decision, I decided to go to youth camp. (Then, next week I will miss the last softball game because I will be going to my grandparents' in Indiana that day to visit for almost a week.) Sherilyn, Emily, Kenny, and I are all going up to Ohio Youth Camp for a couple days. That will be an interesting trip. Well, Talk to ya later,

Well, There Goes That Idea!

No youth camp. This is kinda like deja vu. The second youth camp I will have missed this summer. However, life has not been totally boring so I can't really complain. I've gotten to play softball several times, watch a softball game, play volleyball, eat homemade ice cream, and last night was our youth get together at Titus and Cherie's. Tomorrow, we (my family) are going to go hear a bluegrass group. This Sunday, GBS quartet is coming. Next Tuesday, another softball game. Next Friday, my birthday! Yay! The next week, we're going to visit my grandparents in Indiana. So, really, there's a lot going on and I'm not bored. I do have allergies or sinus on top of these annoying attacks I've been having and today, I go again to the doctor's. So I need to end this post and go get ready.

This crazy thing won't let me put a title on here! I think that is very terrible of it, but alas, blogspot does what it wants and I have no control.
Well, I just happened to have another dizzy spell the other day, (great). I guess it isn't anxiety attacks. So I will hopefully go to a specialist sometime soon. I also think I have a doctor's appointment this Friday. Please pray! I want to go to Ohio youth camp sooo bad! I don't know if I will, since this happened again.
Tomorrow is the church's softball game! Yay! Last week, Kyle's team lost to Jamie's. The two Kenwood teams also played each other. The one team had an ufair advantage (I believe) over the other and won. I don't know who plays who tomorrow. After all, I am a sort of substitute and don't know these things. Kyle is on Matt and Tara's team, and it is uncertain as to whether they will show up because of something that happened with Matt's brother. Someone requested prayer for him yesterday in church and it sounded serious. That would be something else to remember to pray for.
I know this may sound ridiculous, but I love listening to the commentary for movies. I just listened to the commentary on Pride and Predjudice the other day and discovered the most interesting facts. The guys that play Mr. Darcy and Mr. Bingley are actually afraid of horses and didn't do any of the actual riding in the movie. I also found out that the guy who played Mr. Bingley had actually dated the girl who played Jane. I found out that the character Mary, was actually supposed to be in love with Mr. Collins. Also that the character of Mr. Darcy's cousin, the one that was engaged to him, was actually in love with Colonel Fitzwilliam. All these fascinating things from listening to the commentary. I found from listening to the commentary on the Apple Dumpling Gang that Don Knotts was afraid of heights and usually had stunt men to do his tricks for him. Shocking! And now you know the rest of the story!

My apologies for not updating sooner. It is not completely my fault. I had one of my spells again a couple weeks ago, along with having company, and the church picnic and other various things to keep me busy. I visited the doctor's office once again since he didn't figure out what was wrong with me last time I was there. I still don't know, but he is treating me with medicine for anxiety attacks.
The Hobe Sound Quartet came and really sounded better than I was expecting though they obviously couldn't outdo GBS male quartet. I along with several of our church friends and the quartet went to UDF after the service to get ice cream.
Speaking of quartets, GBS will be here in a couple of Sundays. The day after I will be leaving for Ohio Youth Camp if all goes well.
Not much going on in my life...... actually, it's been pretty fun. A couple outings, softball games, and a volleyball game at GBS. I've been reading more books-imagine that!-and I think I have found my favorite book. It's romance of course, but it is a really sweet story about acceptance and Christian attitude. It's called A Victorian Rose by Catherine Palmer, if anyone is interested.
I've also been feeding the Stetler's dogs while they are gone to Alabama Camp. I love those dogs! They love me too....probably just cuz I feed them! :)
Oh and Happy July 4th! It rained a lot here, but I managed to sit out on our back deck last night and watch a pretty good show. After a while though, it started raining again and I had to go back inside. Oh well! Well, just thought I'd update everybody since ya'll seemed so anxious to hear from me!
