The worst part about leaving to go somewhere - is after everything is packed, loaded in the car, ready to go - and you are sitting in the house waiting. Waiting for a simple package to come via FED-EX --- sooo we can LEAVE.

This said package has very important contents - contents that are worth waiting an EXTRA hour and half for. I have: gotten gas - gone to the store - packed everything - loaded the van - serviced one of my mom's machines - all in the name of waiting.

I do not know how much longer I can stand this. Patience is not a virtue that comes freely to me - I'm still working on obtaining that one. Although I am a little bit better at it now than I used to be. We are going to be late to the fantastic Hawaiian dinner my cousin's fiance's family are putting together ---

Mom is getting antzy - The poor Fed-Ex person is going to get it... if they ever show up.

Sorry Kevin - I think you might have to wait for your package.... two more weeks....

studying? who me?! uh huh - couldn't be!

You're waiting for someone to put you together
You're waiting for someone to push you away...
...there is always something more you wish he'd say.

So the problem with moving away from Rexburg is that you make new friends.

The problem with making new friends is that everyone has different types of schedules.

The problem with this is some are going to 'Professional School' (Med/Law...etc.) and have to take tests - which means - studying is very high on the time scale and playing very low for a few weeks/months.

Me on the other hand - I have four things my life is filled of -
  1. Work - If I do the math the ratio = 9.5/24 = hours I spend at work 5 days a week... (including car time)
  2. Church - fhe+church+activities+meetings+lesson prep = aprox. 12hrs a week (on teaching week)
  3. Sleep - 6 hours a day... fabulous!
  4. Playing - this is what I believe I spend the most time doing (outside of work). If I could get paid to do this -- I would be sooo rich! any chance I get - I will be playing... This is why it is such a tragedy that my friends have to be taking tests --- but good thing I have a few other friends. :) hee hee hee

Look, I don't want to wax philosophic, but I will say that if you're alive you've got to flap your arms and legs, you've got to jump around a lot, for life is the very opposite of death, and therefore you must at very least think noisy and colorfully, or you're not alive.
Mel Brooks
It is not length of life, but depth of life.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Music is moonlight in the gloomy night of life.
Jean Paul
Dream no small dreams for they have no power to move the hearts of men.

How am I supposed to breath without air?
Every day brings a chance for you to draw in a breath, kick off your shoes, and dance.

I like the hair washing on - just because we were talking about ways to be rejected the other day! My personal favorite: "I'm sorry - I have to rewind my DVD's" hee hee!
