Back to School

Well, guess it's back to the old grindstone. School starts tomorrow. Yay. Get up early. Wear ugly uniform. Hope you look as good as you possibly can in the horrendous thing. Hope your hair does not fall down. Try to survive the scariest two subjects in high school - Physics and Trig/Pre- cal. Try to graduate at the top of the class with better competition.
That's just my view of things. I went to GBS today to get registered, and got to see a lot of my friends that I made last year. I'm definitely going to be busy this year, but the nice part is the fun. The friends that you can laugh and joke with. Yeah, so maybe school's not loads of fun ( I mean, I'm hardly skipping around the house), but friends get you through.
So, my real main goal this year? Not stressing. That is the main thing. Apparently, some of this sickness I've had this summer, if not all of it, is stress related.
I will now start getting up at 6:00, at least. I will wear my ugly uniforms. I will take Physics. But I will not stress. I hope.

Sleepy and Sedated

Hey everybody! Guess what I got to do today? I had a procedure done. It has a long funny name, but it's also called an upper GI which is so much easier to pronounce. So this procedure is where they put me to sleep with an IV and take a flexible scope through my mouth, down the esophagus, and into my stomach and small intestine. Actually, it's nowhere near as scary as it seems. I just had the best sleep I've had in weeks! It's a very simple process, and it was over very quickly. I got to sleep through the whole thing. Then after I came to, we came home, and I went to sleep. The doctor seems to think I'll be sleepy all day. I actually feel a little energized right now. I've been in a goofy mood all morning. And all I've had since 5:30 last night were two donut sticks that Mom gave me when I came to after the procedure. I had to be there at 6:15 this morning! No one should hae to be forced to wake up at such an ungodly hour and not be allowed to eat breakfast. That's cruelty! But anyway..... there is some type of something wrong in my stomach and I'll have to go back later this month. At least that's what I think. I was half asleep when they told Mom this. She knows the details - I don't. Just to let ya'll know, I'm doin good!

End Of Terror Reign!

Oh boy! Yesterday was the last day for VBS! Ok, I really do love the kids, and they love me.... but it is so nice to get a break from it. Especially since I didn't have any help for my team the last two days. I am tired! There is also only so much I can do with my ankle being this way, so I couldn't run with the kids. I actually had probably the best group of kids this year. They were pretty well behaved for the most part.
I have made a change on my blog to where people can now post comments, even if they're not bloggers. I would appreciate no anonymous comments though. Here's the way to post a comment if you don't have a blog or a website, but you don't want to post as anonymous. You can comment as a person with a website, just don't put the name of a website down. That way you don't have to post as anonymous and sign your name at the bottom of the comment.

Two Posts In One Day!

There comes a time when all children of all ages begin to panic. Every one of them dreads it. It sneaks up on you when you aren't ready for it. It is (drumroll please>>insert scary music<<)......
The end of the summer and the beginning of the school year! >>insert shriek of terror<<< AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!
Well, as much as we all hate to see it coming, school is fast approaching. Just a week and a half left of freedom. Or something like that. Actually, I guess it's not really that bad. This just happens to be my last year of high school - I'm a senior. Which means the Senior jean days, the Junior/Senior banquet, and Senior trip. It also means I have to keep my grades as absolutely high as possible so I can make Valdictorian, and I have to decide what I will major in for college next year! It also means I'll get to see all my friends from school again, and drama will start again, too! Also, some friends of mine will be coming to GBS for college, Gretchen Pickett and Amber Cutler, both of whom have already asked me to stay a night with them in the dorm. That'll be lots of fun. So it has it's good and bad sides to it. So the question is........
It sneaks up on everyone. None of us are immune. Are YOU ready?

The Old Crip Has Caught Up!

Whoa! So sorry for my delay in writing, but with my leg as it is, going down the stairs to get to the computer isn't always an fun thing. Okay, so for those of you who haven't heard the story of my ankle, I'll fill you in. As I said in my last post, I went to Indiana to see my grandparents. We had gone to my aunt's house for supper Thursday night. I had been outside playing with my little second cousins, and later they went inside. It was after nine o'clock and dark, but I could see just fine. They had soccer goals set up in their yard and I started dribbling the ball down and missed a shot. Then I turned and went the other way, determined to make the shot this time. I did. But painfully so. My body turned sideways and as I landed I heard this popping noise. By the time I hit the ground I was in pain. They took me to the ER and I was diagnosed with a severely sprained ankle. I was on crutches for a while, and I'm still wearing my foot brace. The swelling made my foot and ankle look as if I had taken a fat person's foot and attatched it to my leg. It also turned blue, yellow, and several pretty shades of purple. But the swelling and the discoloration is going away, and it looks much better.
This week is Vacation Bible School, and also the Boone County Fair. The little girls in my group (the 9-10 yr. olds) really love me, so I feel like I'm in the right spot. Thankfully, I had help last night and so did Ezra, otherwise it would have been kinda scary. We don't have as many helpers this year so Sherilyn, Ezra and I were supposed to be in charge of two different groups. That's not easy, especially considering that they are the two oldest groups.
Well, now I have caught up with posting!
