Ok have any of you seen those microwaveable meats?  You can microwave them and the plastic cover steams up and everything…well…I’m sure that this was stated on the label SOMEWHERE but those things can cause MAJOR steam burns!  Yeah, I have 2 thumbs to prove it!  I got horrible burns on my thumbs from opening one of those things before cooling it off!  Yes I know, I should have known better…but when you are in a rush you don’t think–and that’s what I did. 
But if I can save a burnt thumb of someone else by posting this then I’m satisfied!  If only someone had done that for me…..

or maybe I should have known better!


How sad…spring break is over.  😦  But it was an absolute BLAST!!  It was just way too short! 

My first day of spring break was spent with my brother.  He had his wisdom teeth taken out on Thursday so Friday I stayed with him and we watched a bunch of dvd’s!  I read a lot too.  It was a rather relaxing day.  I also made some delicious yeast sweet rolls from a recipe in my new Fannie Farmer cookbook that I got at an antique store in Floyd back when we went to the Schoolhouse Fabrics for Home Ec class.  I must say that is another great cookbook and it is added to my favorite list!!  So that was my Friday. 

During the week I worked.  On Tuesday I got my hair cut!  I love it!  I was a little worried at first because it’s a LOT shorter and I LOVED my long hair but I am VERY happy with it.  It takes no time to dry now and it looks MUCH better I think!  It’s got a whole bunch of layers now.  I was seeing foot long hair pieces falling when I got it cut!  HAHA!  Keelie and Marie came to see me Tuesday before I got it cut and they had got their hair cut too!  That was the funniest thing!  We had a great time talking and laughing!  I won’t say at what though, but Keelie is just a little prankster!

Even though I had to work it was a lot of fun.  I always get to talk to a lot of people and I really enjoy that.  I enjoy answering the phone and all that good stuff.  I always vacuum and sweep and all that stuff that the manly guys don’t enoy doing!  HAHA!  But I just enjoy it and you may think I’m crazy but go ahead! 

Friday I went to lunch with my mom, aunt, and my awesome cousin!  We always have a fun time whatever we do!  He of course is a major jokester!  I wouldn’t have it any other way though!  I really think everyone is out to get me sometimes!  HAHA!! 

Saturday my dad’s family had a big get together and I’m telling you my stomach still is sore from laughing my head off!!  I can’t even begin to start to tell you all the silly stuff we laughed about!  HAHA I love my family!  Have any of you ever played Mexican train?  It’s a game played with dominoes?  Well we started playing that and it’s a really cool game and you can catch on really quick!  images.jpgThat’s kinda what it looks like.  Look it up if your interested! 

Well I guess that is about all the fun and exciting stuff that happened!  It was so warm and it was great!  Hope everyone else had a great one too!!!  🙂

The last spring break of my high school life…how sad 😦

This year I plan to do some college finalizations and maybe do some visiting.  I want to get all of that behind me.  It’s so stressful along with keeping up with school!  WHEW!  I also have plans to get my hair cut but I may chicken out on that.  We shall see.  I kinda want something different but I don’t want to go wrong. 

I will probably be doing some work.  All that fun answering the phone and hanging out with the tire people.  Such a lovely environment! 🙂  Actually it is really fun and you can laugh all ya want to but I’ve met some awesome people! 

In the rest of the time I’ll probably have some major needed rest and relaxation.  Maybe reading a book, doing some scrapbooking or maybe some baking!  You all would really enjoy the baking part, right?  haha!

So I plan for some major down time and I really want to enjoy this final spring break!  So now all I have to do is wait for it to come!  😀  Can’t wait till FRIDAY!!!!!!!  😀

Tomorrow is the day we have all been waiting for…for SO long!  All those math people and bakers become one and rejoice at the sound of “Pi(e) day”!!


So let’s all celebrate the day we’ve all been waiting for!!!!  PI(E) DAY!!!!!  😀

Wow–this is just almost just plain scary that this is the final quarter of my high school life!  Pretty much all I can say is WOW!  It seems like yesterday I was in Kindergarten!  weird huh?  My plans are to finalize all my college plans.  I really really really wish that what I kinda want to do wasn’t too far away but I just don’t think it would work out.  So right now we are looking at Ferrum or PHCC.  VWCC has a really neat thing where I could go 2 years and then go another year and get my culinary arts certificate and then go on to Ferrum or another 4 year school.  But by then that would be 5 years of college??  whew!  It would probably fly by though.  It just seems so nice because I could get internships easily and it would be something I LOVE but we will have to see where God takes me.  Right now I may be looking into Accounting or Business.  I just really want to get it down “pat” what I want to do because being unsure is really scary, especially this late.  I can get a really good scholarship to Ferrum so I am gonna have to fill out my application and see where that goes. 

So right now my primary focus this last quarter is to figure all my college life out and to keep up my grades.  Easier said than done because senioritis is starting to take over!  It is starting to get really hard to stay focused.  Maybe that will get better after SPRING BREAK!  And the senior banquet is coming up!  I’m also getting my senior pics in on Friday!!  All those beautiful snow pics!  I’m excited!…and scared! 🙂

So I’m gonna sit back and try to relax because the final quarter of my high school is just about over!
