I'm Back!!!!!!!!!!!! Haha!!! :)

Howdy y'all!! I finally posted on my other blogs!!! I've been super busy this last week. Again the Missions Conference went great and I thank the evangelist for the preaching! I told you, I can't stop talking about it! =) Well, anyway.... here are a few more things to laugh at!! I have a lot left over!!!

If you have a glass eye, tap on it occasionally with your pen while talking to others.

Start each meal by conspicuously licking all your food, and announce that this is so no one will "swipe your grub."


Name your dog "Dog."

Insist on keeping your car windshield wipers running in all weather conditions "to keep them tuned up."

Reply to everything someone says with "that’s what you think."

Claim that you must always wear a bicycle helmet as part of your "astronaut training."

Follow a few paces behind someone, spraying everything they touch with a can of Lysol.

Make beeping noises when a large person backs up.

Do not add any inflection to the end of your sentences, producing awkward silences with the impression that you’ll be saying more any moment.

Adjust the tint on your TV so that all the people are green, and insist to others that you "like it that way."

Sew anti-theft detector strips into people’s backpacks.

Hide dairy products in inaccessible places.

What a Day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Howdy y'all!! Seeing as how I live like 15 minutes from Fort Hood, I heard alot about what happened yesterday! It didn't help that I was on post with my mom and brother, Josh! :) Haha! Perfect time to do to PE!! Well, I start off by telling you what happened to me yesterday! We decided not to go to the gym(for PE) that morning cause of Oreo's appointment! Praise the Lord that Oreo's blood sugar is 282! He's out of the "death valley" Haha! Anyway, We decided to go to the gym that afternoon after I finished school. We left here around one something and got to the post(Fort Hood) at two. We still can't figure out why the guards let all of us into the post! Well, anyway, we got to the gym and one of the workers there told us that there was a shooting and at that time there were only 7 dead. We did our workout, but I just hit a mile when all of the workers came into the room where we were and turned all the TVs to the News channel and turned them up for us to hear. I was at 1.68 miles when mom told me to hit cool down and get away from the window(I have to do two miles for PE)! We left the room and went to the lobby there and I asked mom if I could call dad. She gave me the phone and I called him. Little did I know that my dad came home early yesterday!!!!!!!!!!!! He got out early up in Indiana. We finally got to our van and, luckily, I brought my homework, or I'll never had finished it!!! I think the Lord put in my mind to bring my homework along! :) We got away from the gym because we thought that the lock-down was finished. A lock-down is when we are not allowed to leave or come in to the post. Well, we headed to the main gate, our radio on listening to the news. The deaths and injured were getting higher, sadly! We got to the main gate and just sat there! My mom soon had to use the restroom, so we headed to the place were my bros and dad get there hair cut at. We got to walk around and stretch. We soon tried to leave that place like 30 minutes later, but our battery went dead on the van! Thank the Lord that there was a guy in his truck going past us in that same parking lot! We got a jump from him! Anyway, we headed back to the main gate. When we did this, mom tried to call dad again, but just our luck, the phone went dead!!!!!!! Two hours later(I don't remember), mom had to use the restroom again. So Josh had to come to the front and drive if we moved forward. I thought that we'd never move forward!!!! Just after mom left, the lock-down was almost done, the all-clear was given. So Josh had to drive!!! At least, he knew how....I didn't!!! HAHA!!! We were nearing the gate and mom noticed that our gas was low! Praise the Lord that He made it last all the way to home! We got home and were re-united with our dad!!!!! After we ate, we finished my birthday presents and stuff! My Grandma Hamelund gave me a comforter(sent it home with dad) and Nathan gave me.................*drumroll*.....................a .22 long rifle....a gun to those who don't know what that is! :) Hehe! I am sooooooooo glad we're back home, but we weren't anywhere near danger, praise the Lord! Just remember to keep those who lost there loved ones and those who are injured in your prayers! That's all for now!

4. What is or would be 9's favorite book?
Ummmmmmmm, she wrote a book! I guess it would be a teaching book! :)

Neither! They're both Christians!!

6. For some reason, 5 is looking for a roommate. Should (s)he share a studio apartment with 9 or 10?
9 because Mandie is a girl and so is Laura...they're both in the old times, and it's still wrong for girls to share rooms with boys, if they're not married or bros and sis!

7. 2, 7, and 12 have dinner together. Where do they go, and what do they discuss?
Ummmm, they go to the Waltons house and eat there! They discuss Rebecca's poetry and Ephraim's job and wife!! I don't know!!

Scottie loses because Almanzo is a man, so he wins...of course because he's stronger!!

Missie would ask Sarah nicely for it back and Sarah would definitely give it back!! I don't think Sarah would have stolen it in the first place!

NO!!!!!!! I don't think anyone could!! :) Haha
