random thought of the night [Aug. 14th, 2005|11:32 pm]
makkie_torn
When there are 2 windows right by each other, on open & one closed, why does the fly keep flying into the closed one instead flying out the open one?
In the silliness of this question, I decided that there are people like that too. Some keep trying to get through the hard way when there's another door God has grasiously opened for us. Mayhaps we don't see it or just decide to ignore it...yea, random thought...it all came about b/c of a noisy fly in our living room that was doing the exact thing.

Crazy me [Jul. 29th, 2005|11:47 pm]

Random poll for the day...Am I totally crazy for leaving everything I know? Some people have said that I must have a lot of courage to do this, or that I'm in for a great adventure. Does anyone remember the Kellie who was afraid of everything and wouldn't dare to risk anything? I do, and frankly, I'm scared. I hate things that make me want to question my faith, but I'm not going down that road, I know it's not the right one.

Busy day [Jul. 29th, 2005|10:07 pm]

Today was a pretty good day, yesterday too. Somewhat bittersweet; I said, "See ya later" to my friends here. Not good bye b/c I'll be home again and that sounds all too formal. Yesterday I stopped in on Julie and the girls and had a nice chat with them. Went out to do some shopping, then me and Steffunnie went to see Batman Begins. It was a very good movie, Scarecrow was freaky, but Christian Bale made up for that :) Before the movie we saw a preview for The Brothers Grimm; look it up online, it looks really fun; Matt Daemon and Heath Ledger (swoon) are the brothers. I was informed that it was supposed to be out today, but they pushed the date back to next month...gggrrrr the poopyheads! Now I have to wait for the DVD :-P
Today I got a manicure...ooohhhh pretty nails. Then I met Ryan for coffee. That was a great time (Thanks Ryan), catching up and whatnot. A little later Kate came over. We went out for ice cream...mmmmm........ getting in all of my fixes before I leave; going to somewhere that has no restaurants.
Tomorrow I need to make one last trip to the post office...ooohhh, good news! Some of my boxes are there already! Yay! Tomorrow is a family dinner; Grandma & Grandpa are coming over, and though Teresa is heading to Connecticut, Peter is still coming; I'm happy about that. Kimmy & Don are going to be here too...double yay. Sunday is going to be for last minute packing (not really a lot) and relaxing I think. There's really nothing left to do besides clean my room :)
Yea, that's about all for now. Have a great night everyone. Take care & God bless

So, my friend who I talked about a couple posts back...her brother passed away on Tuesday. Please pray for her and her family in this hard time. I cannot begin to know how they feel, but I do know that God will take care of them. Please pray for their strength and comfort.

Ok, so I've been playing with my digital camera (much fun!) And I took a picture of my painting the other day - I painted 2 - one for each of my sisters for their birthdays (I gave it to them early, so I can post it here without worrying about them seeing it :)  .......la la la, I guess I won't be posting it b/c I don't know how ...I think it needs to be from a website..grrr...anyone know how to do pictures from a diital camera let me know; thanks :)

I've been packing too, ugh...my suitcase isn't big enough and is going to weigh too much as well.  I think I will unpack some of it in Anchorage and then ship that to myself in a box....I can take 50lbs from here to Anchorage, but only 40 to the village...go figure; I just hope my backpack doesn't grow too much *sigh*

Happier note - I might get together with Ryan tonight, I get to see Steffunnie tomorrow (along with Batman Begins!), and Kate on Friday!  I'm really happy about this all.

 

Time to figure out the suitcase situation :-P

So, I'm leaving in a week....I really need to start packing, mayhaps tomorrow. Tonight I'll take some time to clean up my room so I have a place for a suitcase :) It was quite an eventful weekend....Saturday I met Amanda Sue and her folks and sold Little Red :( But she has a very nice "captain" now, as Aynslynn would say :) And I no longer have to worry about the price or gas and car insurance...bonus :) Sunday we all helped Teresa and Peter move; it was really hot, and it took a while, but it kinda didn't seem like it. Their new place is nice, I think it was a good move for them. Today Becca came over and we went on a picinc :) and then went to see The March of the Penguins, double :) It was a very good movie and very informative as well - I now know even more about penguins! Tomorrow I'm going out for lunch with Ma and Baba - not sure where yet. Thursday I'm going out with Steffunnie and still have to find time to get with Julie and the girls, Ryan, and Kate if she returns my call ;( ggrrr
Well, not sure what else....time to clean up some. G'night
