What happened today (at the hospital) and Weight Watchers

Today at the hospital (around 12:00) Donnie came up to me and touched my back and messed with my hair and asked me when I was going to lunch. I told him that I was going to have subway and that I was going to take it home to eat it. He said ok. He then hugged me and I tried so hard not to cry. Tears were running down my face and I prayed to God that he would help me and he did. A lady (that I work with) distracted me by showing me a article in a magazine. After I went and got subway, I went to his desk in a huge office that he uses and I told him to not ever hug me again and he said ok. He asked me if we could talk and I said "yes but that I thought that we were pretty much talked out. He didn't say anything after that. So, I walked off and I came home.

I've started dieting today with weight watchers!!! Please pray for me!!!!!!

This is what I did over several days when I didnt have the internet

8/21/09 ~ Friday

Today, I got up and went to work (even though it was Friday. I’d already taken off so many days that I wanted to volunteer) but, I only worked 2 hours before my stomach started hurting me. I called mom crying and she said for me to just go with her (and also my grandmother and my niece) up to Auburn to stay the night with my cousins. So, I did and I was in pain up there and I took some meds and then I felt better. We had a good time and we also had pizza. We let the girls (my cousins: Lilly and Gracie and my niece: Lia) stay up as late as they wanted to and then we gave them a bed time snack and sent them up to bed.

8/22/09 ~ Saturday

We woke up and we had another good day. This day was filled with fun, going to the movies and swimming, (well, at least for my niece). “The Girls” left my niece out of everything that they were doing and just played on their computer without even asking Lia and they went to do things even if they didn’t ask her but, said that they did. Mom had a remedy for that and she took them to see “G-Force”. It’s about these hamsters (or either rats) that become spies for the FBI and Lia came back and said that she was scared. Then, as it was nearing time for us to leave, Aunt Judy and Uncle Jerry came in from their trip. Also, Lia decided that she wanted to go swimming which, she did. All in all it was a good week-end spent in Auburn.

After we got home, I discovered that we didn’t have phone lines nor did we have internet access.

8/23/09 ~ Sunday

I woke up this morning to my stomach hurting me and so, I did not go to church. Mom gave me some meds before she left and one of the side effects of the meds is that it puts me to sleep so, I slept until 11:00. I took some more at 12:00 and now, I’m starting to get sleepy but, I’m going to finish this before I go to sleep. *goes to sleep* I’m completely out of it. It’s amazing that I’m still up and walking. I have not slept a wink since 12:00. Around 4:00, Lia and I played on my bed. I was trying to go to sleep and she learned how to raise and lower the head and foot of the bed and she also learned how to turn the vibrator on and watched an episode of “I Love Lucy”.

The Life Of A Farmers Daughter

The Life of a Farmers Daughter

My mom woke me up this morning at 7:30 to tell me to get dressed to go to town to her eye doctor’s appt. (a yearly checkup) so that she can unpack the trailer because it has to go to the shop to fix a leak. So, I got up and got dressed. Mom decides at the last minute that she will keep her appt. No sooner did mom get out the door that I thought that I was free to read a book. I start reading the book and my dad calls me to come and help him get the truck unstuck from the field. After we got the truck unstuck we go and hook up to a corn trailer because he wants me to haul corn and so, I did not have a chance to change from my town clothes. I went to the corn field and lo and behold, the combine broke (not a big surprise here on the farm) and so, there were only 2 trailers to haul. An employee and I hauled the loads to town and I pulled an empty one from town to the house. Dad told me to leave it (the empty trailer) at the house and that he would take on to the field. I was the one that wound up taking it to the field. Meanwhile, mom wants me to go to the drug store (in Headland) and pick up some meds they (the drugstore) had forgot about. Anyway, so, after I drop off the corn trailer that I am pulling to town, I go to the drug store and get moms meds and then come home. End of story, right? Nope, guess again. I get home, and dad calls me to tell me to go to the John Deere place (a place in town that sells John Deere equipment) and pick up a rim for a tire. Did I mention that Dad wants me to take the rim for the tire that I got at the John Deere place and take it to a tire shop? I come back to the house after I put the trailer in the field and I got my truck and headed to town. I went to the John Deere place and picked up the tire and then as I was on my way home..... is this a third attempt at coming and staying at home? I lost count. Anyway, I was on my way home and dad called me wanting me to go by a building materials place so, I did and I am finally home!!!!! But wait, there is more!!!!! I have spent several hours at home and my dad calls me to go and pick him up in another one of our fields and to take him to another field. This is my life!!!!! The moral of the story is: I never know what I am going to be doing until I do it!!!!!

8/16/09 ~ Sunday

We (Dad, Mom, Lia and me) all went to church this morning and Lia had fun in her Sunday School Class. We came home and we left about 2:30 or 3:00. I know that cause we got to the beach at 5:00 and we only live about 2 1/2 hours away from where we went. Little did I know that a tropical storm was in the Gulf of Mexico and they told up when we checked in to stay hooked up incase of an emergency evacuation so, we did. Claudette (the name of the tropical storm) didn't bring as much rain as I had expected and no damage was done to the trailer so, it was a good day.

In Texas ~ 8/7

Will had off all day today (well, except for this mornings shift at UPS) Deanna had to be at work until 5:00. While Deanna was at work, will took me to a place (I forgot that name) where you can go watch airplanes take off at the Dallas/Fort Worth airport. It was so much fun to watch them land and take off. Will took me to the Grapevine Mills mall but, my back was hurting and I didnt want to go walking in the mall so, we got back in the car and went to Deanna's work instead. she works at a place called Lakeshore and it has all sorts of cool things like, Charts, playdough (not edible, dern it) and modeling clay.

Deanna came home about 5:15 and we went to a place called Dave and Busters. We had so much fun!!!!! There is a game there called "Big Bass fishing" and I got a score of 500 and so, I got 500 tickets!!!! Tomorrow is the circus and I cant wait!!!!!

We hung out here at the apt. We had sandwiches for lunch and then I hung out with Deanna until she went to work and then I hung out with Will until he went to work. All and all a good day.

8/4/09 ~ Tuesday

I woke up at 7:30, did my morning routine, changed clothes and got my bags in the car all by 8:30. We left at 9:00 to meet Will and Deanna (brother and sister in law) in Tyler (we were at Grandma's friends house in Henderson) at the Cracker Barrel. Will and Deanna got there before we did so, they went looking in an antique store (which was next door to the cracker barrel) . We got my stuff in their car and we started off for Dallas. It was a fun trip and then we arrived at their aptartment at 12:00 and then we had sandwiches and watched a show called "The Closer". It was a very good show.

Then Deanna and I watched an episode of "Gilmore Girl" girls (we are such "Gilmore Girls' fan. Then we went to run an errand over to a friend of Deanna's and then we stopped at Sonic (Deanna had a root beer float and I had a coke float with vanilla ice cream) and then we came home and watched another "Gilmore Girls" then "The Cosby Show" and then at 9:00, I watched "18 Kids and Counting" and then I helped Deanna with Supper.

I'm tired and I'm going to bed cause I'm going to try and be awake when my brother gets home.

The day we left for Texas ~ 8/3/09 ~ One long day!!

Mom woke me up at 7:00 (I think) and I did my morning routine and the she took me to Midland City to meet Grandma there (to pick me up). Grandma and I are on our way and we are somewhere between Montgomery and Troy and we are listening to the Bible conference tapes from her church (Grace Missionary Baptist Church).

We ran into some rain a few miles into Mississippi and it was a heavy rain. You couldnt see in front of you b/c of all the rain. A car almost rain into Grandma b/c she pulled out in front of it (even if she denies that it happened) and the car honked its horn (Grandma didnt hear it b/c of the rain hitting the windshield but, I did). Its 2:27 and the GPS says that we will be in Tyler, Texas at 8:12.

Momma, do I drive like Grandma????? She tails people, runs up on the tails of people & she scares me half to death. Do I drive like that?????

We got into Lousiana @ 3:20. I've been texting Deanna (sister in law) as to our whereabouts and I think that she likes that. I just told her (through texting) that Grandma suggested that we go as far as we can go today and Deanna texted me back and said that that was a good idea.

Much debate on hwere to stay for the night. We decided on going through Shreveport, La and we are going to stay in Marshall, Texas @ exit 617. Grandma might tail people, she might and she might get on the white lines and even on the thumoers but, she gets us to our destination quickly.

Its 6:07 (according to Grandma's radio clock in the car; my phone says 6:22) and we are about to be in Shreveport, LA. If we continue and dont stop, we will be in Tyler by 8:25

(In Texas ..... I think) Grandma is asking me about the 220 west bypass, the industrial bypass and the greenwood exit. I told her not to worry about those but (b/c we didnt need to), she asked me anyway.

Well, we arrived at Mrs. Bell's house at/around 7:30 and we had a nice visit. I miss Mom and Dad alot. I want to cry but, I know that that wont do any good. I have some note cards in my computer bag and maybe I can write down the verses that I know on them tonight. I know that I can read. I have lots to do without the internet!! I need to learn to survive without it cause one day I might have to.

I am forgetting about my package from Klaus!!!!! I wonder what he is mailing me?????

I think that I am going to call it a night and go read. Good night!!!!!

The Day before we left for Texas ~ 8/2/09

well, last night, Mom dropped me off at Grandma's house and I was fine until she started to leave. I went outside to see her go and I started to cry. Mom told me that everything will be O.K. She went home and Dad asked her if everything was alright and she said yes but, that I was crying. Dad felt sorry for me and told mom to come and get me. Mom came and I got home at 11:00 (I think). I read and fell asleep at 12:30
