Well, hmm...








Hmm....






Um...hi? Hi! I'm in a VERY strange mood right now. Sorry, all. I DID promise to update every now and then, though, so here goes...

Mom and Dad left this evening. They are celebrating their 20th wedding anniversary this Wednesday and went up to a beautiful area to celebrate. (Oh, by the way, if any of you have any boyfriends/girlfriends, I'd highly recommend doing some group hiking for a date. It's unique, different (okay, that was redundant), and lots of fun.) Back on track...

That means I get to babysit my four lovely siblings for three days. Can you all say "oy vey"? Yeah... So we're planning (well, hoping) to go ice skating tomorrow and go to the May Natural History Museum (pretty cool...), we're also hoping to watch a movie, eat Ramen, and do other weird stuff. So that'll be fun.

I get to close Friday and Saturday night again. That'll be interesting. At least I was able to stay awake during the sermon last Sunday (well, yesterday...)--we'll see how things go this next weekend. I had a good time (amazingly enough) closing Friday and Saturday evenings for several reasons.

1) I got to do back cash, which is the place where you as a customer place your order and then give me the money when you're going through the drive-through. Though I made some mistakes, I also had a lot of fun, and one person even remarked on my being so cheerful for so late at night (I think it was like 11:30 or something). That was cool. :)
2) I was able to close with some very cool people - namely, my shift manager, Tressa, and another friend named Kyle. It's been interesting to get to know both of them. Perhaps I will be able to have an impact in these people's lives. They are all so special.

So I feel like crying...I don't want to make the rest of you feel like doing so, so I shall be done with this post. I hope you all, wherever you are, are feeling far from crying. Just a reminder: our God is so great, and His strength is made totally perfect in our weaknesses. So whether you are happy, whether you are sad, whether you're relaxed, or whether you're feeling like the world just crashed and you barely managed to get out of the way (or maybe you feel like you didn't...), I ask God's blessings on you as you read this.

Glad to hear work is going well! Did you're parents enjoy their weekend?

I think they did. They took lots of pictures, brought home a thing that says "Dinner isn't ready 'til the smoke alarm goes off"--a saying that Dad had adapted one night when the smoke alarm went off and then we announced shortly thereafter that supper was ready... (Sorry if I misspell anything...that school really does a number to my brain...a numbing number! :P)
