Some days you just get kicked in the face.

The only day you dress for summer and it only rains and thunders....The only day you don't have your homework done, and the only day it really needed to be done.....The only day people from your past come back to haunt you, the skeletons in your closet just don't seem to remember why they became skeletons in the first place.....The day you really really just want to stay home and snuggle your husband while he plays with your hair is the only day you are up and gone by 6am and he won't be home until 12am....The same day you realize you wildly underestimated your bills, the same day your hubby has been accidentally jilted on his paycheck....The day you just want to curl up on the couch with the movie you rented last week, the same day you realize the movie is overdue.....The only day you really, really need to nap is the same day you wonder what the heck you were thinking when you signed up for 18 credits....Some days you just get kicked in the face.....But only some days.....

Tomorrow will not be a someday.

High School my house?

Ok, so not really...but sort of.

Today I look outside and there are at least a bajillion teens and tweens dressed in all red and white, all making their way to East High School, mere blocks from my house. Girls are zooming by on bikes shrieking gleefully at one another, guys and all have popped collars and and ultra white K-Swiss shoes on, acknowledging one another with jerky head movements.

In my mind I am thinking, "What the? It can't be Monday, can it? *gasp* I've missed my lectures! My participation grade has been docked 1/17th! went to church today...I don't understand..."

I then I find out....East High is where they film the ultra super hip High School Musical movies, the phenomena I totally do not understand. All these kids have been standing in line for hours and hours to be extras in yet another global sensation created by Disney starring impossibly beautiful and talented teenagers. Apparently, they have begun filming the third installment of the series, and I can observe all the glitz of Hollywood (in Utah) by simply stepping outside.

Like, if I were, like 13, I would like, so like be like freaking out right now!!

But I'm not. I'm nearly 25, and I get to go back inside my air conditionerless apartment and study Immanuel Kant for the next six hours.

We're Going to Disney World!

(The title is supposed to be said in the cheesy, commercial, type tone of voice to receive the full effect of our excitement!)

Me and the hubby are headed to Florida for a little sun, cheeky shenanigans, and lots of laughter before school starts again on Monday. You know, we're good kids. I think we deserve it!

10 Loves

1. My amazingly wonderful, brilliant, supportive family. I don't know how many times I can say it. Immediate, extended, in-laws, adopted or otherwise acquired members, they are amazing. We love them so much.
2. Tithing. I am insanely grateful that we pay it faithfully. It makes all the difference.
3. Pre-made meals by Granny Kaye and JaLee. They sure help this kitchen-challenged wife a whole lot.
4. Game night with friends and people who love cards as much as we do!
5. Nighttime walks with Brandon. Its such good bonding time with the hubby.
6. Other peoples blogs. I am so hooked.
7. When people remember to put a capital C when spelling my last name.
8. Oprah. Could I be any more cliche or any more of a girl? I am particularly loving the Dr. Oz shows. They freak me out and amaze me and gross me out all at once.
9. Our Florida trip! Ok, so technically we don't leave for another 18 hours, but we are so excited about and have SO been looking forward to it!
10. Sore muscles. Proof to myself that I am working as hard as I think I am.
