The Key

Imagine you "borrow" someone else's car without asking. But this person doesn't even own the car. They are just borrowing it. You let a 15 year old student drive the car to town, everything goes pretty smoothly. You rent a movie and a tonne of treats. You get back to the car and watch the driver put the wrong key in the door, the ignition key. SNAP. They key breaks in the lock. Panic ensues. You pick the key shard out of the lock and race to the local hardware store to get a replacement, praying all the way. The key master highly doubts that the new key she made for you will work, broken keys rarly do she informs us. You race back to the car and try the new key in the ignition, praying still. You turn the key and rejoice at the grumbling of the engine! Crisis averted. You decided it is best if you drive back.

Two Babies?

Today we took Conan, our last boy Irish Setter puppy to the airport and flew him to BC! I was SOOOOO nervous to send him on a plane all alone. I got the call about an hour ago that he made it there and he is ok! YAY!

Eric came with me to the city. I was so glad to have help with Conan and company. We went to Olive Garden for lunch and got the soup salad and breadsticks. MMM Zuppa Toscana is the best soup ever! I only had one bowl though, then I was full! Then I went to Fabricland and spend far too much time in there. I bought a pattern for dresses that I will attempt to make for this summer. I would love to make a bunch of them for my little cousin Charlee. I bought some really cute fabrics for that as well! I will post pics when they are made. I am still working on sewing blakents for the craft show on Wednesday.

About 1/2 hour ago I sold another puppy! Flanna has a new family and 4 kids to play with!! Right now there is only 4 left, and after tomorrow, there will probably only be two! I can hardly beleive that! I am so happy they are all going to good homes and families that will give them the attention they deserve!

Why I MUST Be Crazy

I love this quote! I found it in the book "Rumours of Another World" by Phillip Yancey. Gives me reason for crazy:

If the world is sane, then Jesus is mad as a hatter and the Last Supper is the Mad Tea Party. The world says, Mind your own business, and Jesus says, There is no such thing as your own business. The world says, Follow the wisest course and be a success, and Jesus says, Follow me and be crucified. The world says, Drive carefully - the life you save may be your own - and Jesus says, Whoever would save his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. The world says, Law and order, and Jesus says, Love. The world says, Get and Jesus says, Give.In terms of the world's sanity, Jesus is crazy as a coot, and anybody who thinks he can follow him without being a little crazy too is laboring less under a cross than under a delusion. - Frederick Buechner

Biking To Work

Today I woke up like 1/2 an hour earlier than normal, cause we had to drop the car off with Eloa to take to town so it can get new tired. They are "banana peels" as the guy called it. Oops. Anyways, I realized that I would have no way home other than walking after work, which I really don't feel like today, so I decided to bike. Really I should have gotten Eric to ride the bike to work, as I am not feeling great this morning. I know I will feel better by the afternoon. But now it is too late and I have to bike. It is going to be a gorgeous day I think, blue skies, the sun is smiling! I should not complain and just thank God that I even have the ability to bike! Choosing happiness is much better than being pessimistic I am starting to realize!

New Look! :)

I decided to FINALLY get rid of the darkness, and come into the light! I LOVE my new template! It is my favorite color and bright, just in time for spring! I had to delete all of my add ons and stuff, so I have to work on that a bit yet, but I am pretty happy with it. I need to switch up the title though, the "diary of a crazy person" needs to look different...

What Else...

Why is it on days that start out rough, when I try to think positively and make the day good, bad things just keep happening? I am STILL not feeling good today, I am just feeling really worn out. I was a total grumpy bear this morning. Then I thought I was all organized today when I went to town to do a deposit and drop a couple things off. I forgot my deposit at home. I could just SCREAM! Then I went to Coop and my package of screws opened up all over the grounds. Embarassing. I am done with the bad things. I just want good stuff. It is a gorgeous, warm, sunny day. It is supposed to be a happy day! I am really going to try not to let those little things get me down. But I still just have that question lingering in the back of my mind "What now? What else?"

12 Year Old Me

When I was out at my Mom's place this weekend, I started to clean out some of the boxes I have there. I came across my journal that I wrote when I was 11-13, mostly when I was 12. WOW. I am ever different! I felt like I was reading the journal of someone else! I wrote so openly about everything. I cared deeply about such petty things. It is mostly about boys and the boys I thought were cute and that I liked. It is kinda funny to read about liking one boy one day, hating him the next, then liking him again 2 days later. LOL! It is funny to read me talking about liking Eric Dueck, and talking about getting married and my future husband. Little did I know the two would be the same! I also had such a low self esteem. I just hated myself, it breaks my heart to read it! Reading that journal makes me SO thankful for Jesus' love. I am so glad He saved me from that life. I am so glad He set me free. All of my worries and burdens I can pass onto His shoulders! PRAISE HIM! :)

The Weekend So Far...

Yesterday Eric, Paris, Fleury, Conan, Flynns and I went out to Matheson Island. I had a Partylite show to do, and my mom wanted me to bring out two of the Irish Setter puppies. The ride there wasn't too great, the puppies got car sick! ARGH! We had a delish supper with my parents and then I went to my Partylite show. It was GREAT! There were 14 guests there and it was the 2nd best show I have ever done! YAY! I am so pumped!

The rest of the weekend we just spend hanging out with my parents. We kept the two Irish Setter pups inside and they were SO GOOD! They were pretty calm and they didn't wreck anything! Makes me want to have them out in our house more! I feel so bad for them stuck in that room! They really need homes that they can hang out in and a family to love them! They are such sweet puppies!

My house is SLOWLY getting cleaning. Today I finally went through all my instock Partylite stuff, as you can see from the previous post! I can't believe all the stuff I have. It is rediculous! I need to get it out of my house! I have been hoarding things away that I know I will not use for years, so some of the stuff I am selling I was planning to keep. But I just don't need all that right now. If I ever want it, I can just buy it again or buy something else. I will not die.

I would like to think that my house is slowly getting more organized. Lately I have been getting better at doing housework after work, so my house is staying a bit cleaner. The only problem is when I am busy for a few days in a row, then it becomes a tornado again! I have to learn how to stop that and keep my house clean even when I am in a rush!

Crisis Averted

It seems the Icelandic River as lowered by 5-6 feet, so Riverton narrowly escaped being flooded! Sandbagging was a cool experience. There were hundreds and hundreds of people there. Most of them I have never seen before in my life. People were working as fast as they could. People were handing out hamburgers and hot dogs and drinks and snacks to anyone who wanted them!Apparently this whole mess could have been avioded if they had blasted the ice a couple weeks ago like they had the past two years! The problem was not the amount of water but the fact the ice was all jammed up!

Today the sun is hiding from me again, so I am thinking I will spend the day sewing! There is a craft show is a couple weeks I am setting up a booth at, and I would like to have as many blankets as possible made So far I have two. LOL . That is bad...

Going Sandbagging!

Well it seems Riverton is flooding so instead of small groups we are going sandbagging!

The east side of Riverton was evacuated this afternoon because of the flood threat! Pretty much everyone I know is sandbagging or has already! It is pretty cool to see everyone in a community band together like this!

I don't think Riverton ha flooded since my mom was a teenager. I have seen pictures of her standing by the bridge with everything flooded! Pretty crazy! I hope this sandbagging will help!

Sunshine, Lollipops and Rainbows!

Alright, well maybe not the last two!!

Today we were blessed with a beautiful, warm, sunny day! I am so thankful! I got Eric to bring the bike home from his parents and I took Maeve and Finn on bike rides, seperately! It was Finn's first time so I was pretty nervous he would pull me over, but he was good! AND I actually think I tired him out! Maeve is always good! She loves to run!

My horse pasture is almost all free of snow! It is still pretty wet though, and there is a big puddle right at the entrance. I just HATE that. I want to put like 10 truckloads of sand there. It just bothers me. I know it is going to be a mudpit everytime it rains in the summer. ARGH! Because of that I have to carry the hay out to dry land, which is interesting! Today I also enjoyed brushing the horses in the sunshine! They are shedding like crazy, I brush and brush until my arms are sore and there is STILL hair coming out! I can't wait to see how Chai looks without his 4 inch long hair. And I swear Zaiyah will be brown in a couple years. Each year she gets more and more brown spots on her grey coat. I love her, she is the sweetest horse ever!

I also sold another Irish Setter puppy today. I have to fly him to BC!! I am SO NERVOUS about that, but I know people do it all the time. Another guy came to look at them today. I hope him and his gf come back to buy one. They said they go running 4-5 times a week. That would be PERFECT for a setter! Someone is also coming to look at them tommorrow. That would leave us with three! A little more manageable I think!


Just checking if I can add a title from my phone!

And a picture!

Today I stayed home from work sick. UGH. I have not worked much lately cause of lots of other reasons so I really wanted to go, but this morning I felt pretty rough. I just couldn't imagine working like this. I did the animal chores with Eric and then went back to bed. I think I had the most restful sleep EVER. I felt alot better when I woke up, but now it is starting to drag me down again...

Usually my colds are bad for 2-3 days and then it gets better. This is day 6 already and it is still hanging around! I hope this is the last day, I need to get back to normal life!

Sunday, April 12, 2009


Well, I suppose it is time to come back to those who are reading. I did not stick to my 1/2 hour a day rule AT ALL, but I DID go on the internet alot less. I also got the house cleaner, I think.

One major thing that happened in the last month was me reading the Thin Within book. I am not done yet, I have missed many many days. BUT God has helped me GREATLY. Last month I love 15 lbs and 16.25 inches! WOW! I did not think it was possible. I can't believe I have tried to loose weight WITHOUT God's help before! No wonder I failed!

We also still have 6 Irish Setter puppies left. Talk about STRESSFUL. They are $350, so please buy one! All the Chihuahua are gone! My first litter to sell that fast! I miss them.
