Yes, it has been quite a while. I apologize. I will just start by… writing… stuff… like usual. And hopefully I will start up my blogging routine again.
My little cousins were here allll weekend…. They came Friday and left yesterday afternoon. My Uncle Bruce is an equine specialist in Texas, and he comes to visit once a year now. Between Christmas and New Year’s Eve. He brought my three little cousins… Jake (9), Jade (7), and Jace (5). In case you’re wondering, yes we mix up their names all the time. But anyway, they exhausted us! Jake isn’t so bad, he is pretty calm and reserved. But Jade wanted to be with me every second, wanted me to do stuff with her, and I was just SO. TIRED. Apparently I am her favorite cousin, and trust me, it’s not much fun. And then Jace… oh Jace. The little monster. He is nuts! He just screams for no good reason, none at all, and tackles your feet, and throws things, and grrrrr. He can’t even just say “good night”. It’s “GOOOOOOOD. NIIIIGHHHTTT!!!!!”
They wanted me to build a zoo with them out of Duplos. But I didn’t WANT to. And so Jace kept bugging me until I built a cage for the crocodile. Or alligator. Or whatever, I dunno, it’s made out of plastic for Heaven’s sake!
So yeah yesterday was New Year’s Eve. Not that I need to tell you guys that… Erm, yeah, we did… Nothing. It was my Daddy’s birthday but we were all exhausted from the visit from the Little Munsters, so we did nothing. Just kind of hung around the house all day, or atleast we did, Daddy was out working, as always, he never stops. So I got to feeling a little sick, and decided to crash in front of the TV for a while, where I watched Tombstone. If you haven’t seen it, see it. It’s a little Hollywood-ized, not surprising, but still, good movie. Sad movie though. Funny, as a female, that the part I like the least is the romantic part where he falls in love with the actress Josephine…. That part bores me. Haha I like Doc, for some reason, I don’t know why, but I just like that guy! Okay, enough about Tombstone. So when that was over, we began to watch Gone In 60 Seconds. Another very good movie… It’s about this guy named Memphis (played by Nicholas Cage) who has to steal 50 cars in 3 days otherwise these bad dudes are gonna kill his little brother. It’s a good movie- Sara, you should see it.
And then I crashed about 10:15. With a bit of a sore throat… when I woke up this morning my throat hurt like heck. Watched TV a lot of the morning, just collapsed on the couch, half in existence, half not. And now… I am on here. Feeling sorry for myself and listening to my iPod. OH! I completely skipped Christmas… dang I hate it when I fall behind on my blog.
For Christmas, my grandparents (on my Mom’s side) came down. We call them Omi & Opa, because they are German (my Mom was born in Germany too, and my great-great-great grandparents were born in Germany on my Dad’s side, so I am a little German gal), and Omi is ‘grandma’ in German, and Opa is ‘grandpa’ in German. Yeah… It was okay. Stressful, I had a hard time, and it didn’t really feel like Christmas, but I don’t want to get into all that right now.
I got lots of stuff! In my stocking… I got lip gloss and perfume. Yeah… Now one of the lip stuff I got is Burt’s Bees, and it’s very lightly colored so I like it, but I got some other stuff that… Well it’s called “Pink Grapefruit”. And it smells like grapefruit… but in a lip gloss, grape fruit smells weird. Oh well… And the perfume. I am almost positive that came from my grandmother. I have never worn perfume and I wasn’t really planning on it anytime soon. It’s from “Dolce & Gabbana” or something like that. One smells kind of nice… It’s called Light Blue. The other one is called “The One”. What kind of name for perfume is that? “The One”? So you put it on and your soul mate just gravitates to you or something? Whatever… It smells bad anyway. Daddy says we can use it for trapping bait. I agree.
I also got a Promise Ring from my Daddy! For those of ya’ll who don’t know what it is, I will explain. You wear this Promise Ring on your wedding ring finger until the day you get married… It means you promise to wait until you get married, you wait for your husband. It’s really cool… This one says “TRUE LOVE WAITS” on it. I loooove it… Thanks Daddy! (Your dad is supposed to give it to the daughter, the mom is supposed to give it to the son.) I also got… candy! And yeah. Then on to the other presents. I got some nice shirts, some jeans, some socks, a pair of pajamas. I got FOUR CDs! Garth Brooks (The Ultimate Collection), Carrie Underwood (Carnival Ride), Jordin Sparks (self titled), and Montgomery Gentry (Some People Change). I got a DVD… Knight’s Tale! Another excellent movie. Clean and amusing, but not a chick flick.
And best of all… I got an iPod!!! I asked for an iPod Nano, 8 gig. That was as much room as I would need. Tyler went way on the other side of the scale, he asked for an iPod Classic 160 gig!!! I guess he wants to put a lot of movies on his… But we both got an iPod Classis 80 gigabite. That is a LOT of room. Wow. But now I can put movies on it! If I can ever figure out how… Anyway Tyler got a black one and I got a silver one. It took me two days to figure the stupid thing out… About 7 hours of nonstop frustration. I finally got it though! I had to register the iPod online, download songs on LimeWire, drag the songs from LimeWire over to a playlist on iTunes, plug in my iPod to the computer using the USB cord or whatever it I called, and then download the songs to my iPod! I have…. 110 songs on there now. And 24 pictures. Hehehe.
I had heard one song by this guy named Chris Daughtry on the radio, called “Over You”. So I downloaded it onto my iPod and I loooove it. So I decided to download more… Turns out that song they play on American Idol whenever they kick somebody off the show, he sings it! It’s called “Home”. I also loooove his song “All These Lives”. Wow. Good songs. *sigh* He has a spectacular voice, I am addicted to his voice and his songs. He was on American Idol actually, 2005 I think, but I am not sure. He got kicked off in the top 4, but should have stayed. Cause he is excellent! I seriously am addicted to “Over You” & “All These Lives”. Somebody help me! I am now a Chris Daughtry junkie. And I'm not even that into rock music!
Okay, anyways, yeah. So I am sick. Sara asked me on Facebook “what are your plans for New Years?” Well I am sick. So I guess hang out in my Blue Squirrels, sweat pants and baggy t-shirt soaking on throat lozenges and listening to my iPod.
Ya’ll enjoy your New Years. And remember to feel sorry for me. Much appreciated. =)
