oh what a morning

It all begins at 4:00 am when I wake up about ever 30 min. till I finally get out of bed at 7:45.
In the shower I have a little visitor (4 year old Kelty who I'm tending for the week).
The body aches from my nasty cold make me really debate whether I should go to class.
Knowing there will be a quiz I decide to brave the cold (both inside and out).
I turn on the car, get out at begin scraping.
Now that that's done I try opening my car door.
Somehow, someway the lock had gotten bumped so my car was running and I couldn't get inside.
I wait.
My sister shows up to watch the kids while I'm in class. I tell her to call Colonel Brandon and ask to borrow her car.
As I drive away with no paper, pen, book, or phone I realize I never explained what Amanda should actually say to The Colonel when she calls him.
I hope he won't be too upset that I just ruined his sleeping in day.
Making it to class just in time after parking illegally and running to class I take my quiz (after borrowing a pen and paper) and ace it (for once).
I thankfully see no ticket on my car and I drive home.
Oh what a morning.

This is what I wrote yesterday during my class...

My head is beating and I need to sleep. Wednesdays are not going to be fun--at all. I need food. It's 6:30 and I still have 20 minutes of class. Lame. I can't think. My professor collects spit in his mouth till it gets thick and white. It collects on his teeth, tongue, and the crevices of his lips. Gross. I just want to be home--with my food, diet coke, Colonel Brandon, and TV. I need to read Shakespeare and study Spanish. But I really don't want to. I can't believe it's only the second day of classes. I'm glad this class is only once a week. Wednesdays are now my least favorite day.

The end.

It's a new year

As I was catching up on reading others blogs I realized I needed to jump on the bandwagon of the 2010 reflection. Some highlights:

planning a wedding with Colonel Brandon in law school and me in...regular school?
getting married to my sweety in Logan
moving to Springville
buying decorations for the house throughout the year
tearing down wallpaper at my parents
relaxing on our honeymoon at Daniels Summit
finishing my first year in the English teaching program
Colonel Brandon finishing the first half of law school (it's all downhill from here right!)
taking several trips to Logan, some happy and some sad
saying farewell to Grandpa Emmett, we sure do miss you
meeting Grandma Ina
Dinners with family and friends
camping times two
fishing in Alaska
spending the night at several other homes watching kiddies while the parents vacation
getting away to St. George with Colonel Brandon
visiting the hospital way too often to see my dad
Thanksgiving with the Bastians
our first Christmas together at home
doing p90x (for one day)
buying a playstation
helping friends and family move
playing lots of new games

This is definitely a short list and Colonel Brandon could add a lot more, but here's just a few highlights. We had a fabulous Christmas and you can see some pictures
here from the Emmett Christmas party and the ski days following. The break was too short, but it's now time to be off to Spanish. Yikes!
