Can anyone tell me why there are yellowjackets in my house? (I'm not talking about the kind you wear)

Can anyone tell me why my clothes stick to me when I drive in my black car?

can ANYONE tell me why fresh beans from the garden and eggsalad sandwiches are an amazing dinner?

can anyone tell ME whyI have nothing cool to write about? haha- did you get that? Cool... it's really hot here and there isn't anything 'cool' to write about :) I crack myself up.

Well I have to say that since I started working day shift and since I started being a part of my ward and going to activities, talking to people and even taking the initiative and planning activities with a friend, I am much more stimulated. It's amazing how much socializing helps one not go crazy. I mean Grant and Aileen were fun to joke around with but it also got late and boring and I started feeling guilty about not focusing on work. I am however sad that I have to be at work at 8, which, I know, is late but I have to get up at 6:45 to get there on time and that is not late. Well I am going to lay on the couch until my hometeachers get here. Chances are, I will lay down and they will pull in the driveway... that's just how it works!

love you all...

Oh Hallmark

I think I should write a Hallmark movie... it would be too easy. All you need is someone in some kind of pickle, a love interest in which the two who are in love must overcome all odds to be able to be together and one person on the side who fixes it all. The last scene consists of the love interest being resolved and the person in a pickle being rewarded with money or land. I think I win!

well well. Now that I am super tired and frustrated I'm going to bed. Dad beat me to it (He's snoring on the couch :))

Love maren :)

p.s. previews of Wonder Bread meets Bubble yum coming soon!

Ok, quickly before I start making my dress, hello world, it's nice to see you all.

If you haven't checked out my cousin's blog today, you might want to. Her blog is 'Oh hey' if you just scroll down and click on the right side bar. It made my day, it might make yours!

Working 8's are annoying, but more annoying is falling asleep every time I try to read my scriptures. GRRRRRR oh well, I will get myself into a rhythm, I've already had a really good suggestion about that.

Institute is great!

Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad! 26 years and counting... isn't that very exciting?

k, I am going to start cutting out my dress, it is going to be excruciatingly cute, although maybe not on me, but on the hanger!

love Maren :)

p.s. I am in serious need of socializing so if you need to hang out during the day or even just to talk on the phone, I am TOTALLY open to that...

Hello Beautiful sunny day!

Today, I went on a walk. It started with me a Sophie walking at a normal pace with both dogs and ended with me tempted to call mom or dad to come pick us up. I was literally dragging Cody. He is old and that is really sad. So we've decided that he is only allowed to go on half walks... sad! Mom and I have decided that it will be really sad when he leaves us because it will be the end of an era. He is the last living thing that we have of New York. Ok, I guess you COULD count Alex, Austin and Sophie... but still you know what I mean. I am listening to a book on tape called 'Fire of the Covenant'. It's about the Willie and Martin handcart companies and there is a fictional story wound in it. It makes me really happy. Sadly it's not on the iPod, so I can't take it to work. That's probably a good thing since if it was, I would be really absorbed in it and I don't know if I would be able to concentrate, which is kind of important...

I really want to work on my 3 quilts that I have to finish before I move away. It hit me yesterday while I was at work that in a little less that 3 months I will be moving away from my family- like, they won't be at my house when I come home from school. And I will have to feed myself and I will realize how much my parents do for me... AAAAAGHHHH. I'm so scared/excited. It's kind of cool to know that it is now my turn. I just hope that I will know what to do... I guess I'll have to get a social life. What is that?

My computer speakers are freaking out. You know how as soon as you sign the contract that says that you buy the house, the houses value goes down? Does that happen with computers too? Or do computers just become outdated immediately?

Well, I guess I better get back to my book. I work nights now so if you would like to hang out in the morning give me a call!

Love Maren :)
