a breakdown

Posted: 07::04::10 in Uncategorized

Well the last 24 hours has been quite fun to say the least and I feel so exhausted I’m not sure if I can even tell the whole story.

My friend had text messaged me yesterday morning asking if I wanted to go to the mall with her because she need to buy black dress pants, I told her I didn’t have any money but that I would go so she could have company. Well then she said that was cool and maybe we could go see “Twilight Saga: Eclipse” while we were there and she would pay for my ticket. I thought that was a good idea so that’s what our plans were. Although my mom ended up buying our tickets online for us and my friend only had to pay for her own ticket.

Nonetheless we went to the mall and shopped around. After we killed enough time we got some dinner in the food court and then headed to the movie theatre to get our tickets. The movie was great, it was really cool. The only annoying part was when people would flip open their cell phones and one kids phone actually started ringing behind us. We were kind of perturbed at that.

Anyway, after the movie we headed home, only on the road maybe 5 minutes when my friends car breaks down at a traffic light. She tried restarting it but it wouldn’t come on. She ended up calling her dad who said he was on his way, a good 45 minute drive, and told us to call 911 in the meantime. So we did and they sent an officer out to us. He helped us move her car out of the way and onto the side of the road. Needless to say it was fun.. NOT. By the time her dad got there it was nearly 11 and they decided to just let me stay the night at her house. I didn’t really get much sleep at all but I managed. We ended up getting up early this morning to go clean out her car and then drive to church. I’ve now been home for maybe 3 hours or a little more and i’m still exhausted wishing more than anything I could get some sleep.

…oh joy!


Have you ever…

Posted: 07::02::10 in Uncategorized

Have you ever been so bored that nothing appealed to you? Or even anything that did appeal just didn’t work out? That is where I find myself today.

I woke up sort of early this morning or at least earlier than I had been this week. I got up and made coffee, got online and checked a few things, I finally found myself watching TV and sipping my coffee. Eventually the TV started to bore me so I came back online to check a few other things, Facebook, email, etc. (by the way, I wonder if Facebook is an actual word in the dictionary now?) Finally I was done with that and found myself bored again. Nothing on TV was interesting, the next thing to do was to browse through the Netflix and see what is available for streaming. Finally, I gave up when I was coming up empty.

So, here I find myself blogging away relentlessly trying to come up with something, anything to undo my boredom. I’ve already nixed out TV and movies, I don’t feel like reading since I usually try to save that for bedtime because it makes me nice and sleepy, not because the book is boring mind you, just because it makes my eyes heavy and sore as if I haven’t blinked in hours and then all I want to do is close them and sleep.

Now I am content right now writing in my blog but I’m just thinking about once I’ve finished this because alas all good blogs must come to an end. Sad to say I know but it’s the truth. 😛

…Maybe I should give up and read after all. I would bake something except I don’t want to use up any of the flour, sugar, eggs and butter we already own since my mom is supposed to bake cookies for my brother later as it is. I think I shall leave the baking to her at this point, but perhaps I can bake something tomorrow. Just so we have something to nibble on for the weekend. 🙂

July… wow!

I can’t believe it is July already. It seems like just yesterday it was February and we were digging ourselves out of 2 feet of snow.

Well, I thought that I should write in this thing considering I created it not too long ago and have yet to write. Oh procrastination, How I love thee! 😉

I have to admit, I was thinking about my grandpa last night and when he prays. I think one thing I love is how when he prays he uses words like thee and thou or what-not. My grandpa has a very soothing voice, at least to me he does. He also has a great singing voice too. I love listening to him talk and sing, it gives me a peaceful feeling.

I just recently started reading “The Screwtape Letters” by C.S. Lewis. I must admit that at first I wasn’t quite getting it but then it became more and more clear. I’m still not sure what to think about it. I mean it just seems strange to read these letters written by Screwtape, who is a demon and he is writing them to his nephew, a junior tempter. It’s all so bizarre but it a weird way it might be a good thing to read. At least I can see how Satan can use even the small things to tempt us Christians and fall away from God. At the same time though its making me wonder, do demons and the evil ones have that much power? I mean even in the book it makes a comment along the lines of  listening to their thoughts or something along those lines but it was to my understanding that Satan doesn’t have that kind of power. I mean I think maybe he could hear us when we speak out loud but I didn’t think he was omniscient. I guess I feel like we give the enemy too much credit and maybe that’s how I’m feeling with this book too. At the same time I wonder if that is a weakness? I mean what if we were to doubt or undermine the power that Satan has, I wonder if that can be used against us in some way, therefore being a weakness. We are supposed to be ready and on guard after all…
