Enjoying it while I can.

Being lazy, that is.

Because seriously, next week is insanely crazy.
Monday - drive to Greenville, SC (7 hours)
Tuesday - appointment @ Shriner's Hospital, drive home
Wednesday - pre-college physical, eye appointment
Thursday - drive to Raleigh, NC (2.5 hours), appointment at seizure doctor, drive to Benson, NC to hotel
Friday - college orientation in Buies Creek, NC
Saturday - college orientation, drive home

So, needless to say, I'll probably be pretty absent from here next week. Thankfully, my mom has to do all the driving. ;) And I bought myself a new ORANGE 8GB Ipod yesterday, so I will have no lack in entertainment. My mom wanted my old Ipod so she could load her German tapes on there. The even more awesome thing about is is that this new 8GB cost just about the same that my 4GB did last summer. The most awesome thing of ALL about this new Ipod is that it came with an insert/adaptor to put it into the Ipod dock I got for my birthday/graduation, and with the old one I was going to have to order it. Money saved on a stupid little piece of plastic.

So, I had to get four vaccinationsd required for college on Wednesday. HepA, HepB, HPV, and Meningicoccal Meningitis. I HATE SHOTS. And let me tell you, the HPV/Gardasil and Meningitis HURT LIKE CRAZY. I still have a massive lump on my arm where those two were. My mom says it's because I was tense, but I was really trying to be calm and relaxed. I guess I failed at that, haha, because my mom said she could actually see the tightness in my arm. That was odd.

Over on MckMama's blog, there's been a great discussion about politics. I have it on my mind to say my piece. If this makes you want to stop reading my blog, then so be it.

I am a die-hard Democrat. However, I am always up for debates with Republicans who actually have a real sense about the subjects they talk about. I was completely displeased with the 8 years that George W. Bush was in office. I believe he really messed us up on several levels. I have hope for Obama and what he can do to change this country. It truly bothers me that so many people think that the problems we have right now are because of Obama, completely ignoring the fact that things have been going downhill for much longer than five and a half months. I support our troops wholeheartedly and truly appreciate that they are doing the job to protect us that they signed up to do, but I believe that we got into this war on lies and false information and it is doing much harm, so I do not support this war. I think torturing anyone to get information or confessions out of them is just plain wrong. But no matter what liberal/Democrat values or beliefs I have, I believe God rules over any human, and it is our duty as Christians to pray for our leaders, whether or not we like or agree with them.

Okay, switching topics now.

Please continue to pray for Dw and Linn and their family. Dw is very very sick with Hepatitis, Linn is there in Iowa with him and a recovering-from-leg-surgery Isaiah, and their daughter. The rest of their kids are across the country, and it is hard on all of them. They need all the prayers they can get.

Okay, that's all I can think of to post. Like I said, I'll probably be pretty absent from here next week, but I'll try to post when/if I can.

  1. Boy - we're dead on in political agreement - cool!

    Have... fun?... not sure that's the right word for the crazy week you're going to have - maybe, I hope all the medical stuff goes well & that you have fun at the orientation!

    Happy 4th!
