then i had to go to work, to move furniture. annie's dance studio was hotter than a fat lady's armit. my head was thumping. cause i was on my second day no caffeine. so when i got to school, i was in tons o' pain. i broke down and drank a diet dr pepper. i'm pretty anti the diet sodas & i'm not going to lie - it wasn't good, but that along with 3 ibuprofens did help my headache disappear pretty much. it was fun to see my teacher friends & catch up, show pictures & talk story. the one good thing about my 3 week vacation being over - seeing my friends again.
tonight, i had a little tv night party. by party i mean: Me, Meeja (and sam, her son), Kim & Krystal. It was fun to have them all together, even though they're not all close. Those girls are probably my closest girlfriends right now, so I of course had a blast. I hadn't spent any time with Krystal since she moved out & it was so comfy to have her over. We've decided that Thursday night is going to be our "tv night" all season. I hope we stick with it. I made a couple tasty treats (sausage dig ~killer!!!~ and asparagus spears w/ham & cream cheese) mhmmmm. oh yeah, and brownies. tonight pretty much busted my diet, but - i was quite the hard worker today. so - i'm going to get up early in the morning & then I'll be good tomorrow.
And then lastly - I just came into my computer to blog & had a very touching email from my dad. I cried when I read it. I'm going to share a little bit of what he wrote. I love my dad, cause he seriously (almost in a freaky way) always knows when to give a little advice. He wrote:
I've been thinking about your recent blog and have some comments.
I read a book recently where the guy proposed to the girl after describing himself
in somewhat negative ways. The girl responded by saying she was in love with
another man. She saw him as something completely different, kind, caring etc.
Like the man in the book, you frequently describe yourself in negative ways and I
want you to know thatothers don't see you that way. You are a very interesting,
smart, fun person who by the way is quite beautiful (not just a dad talking here
either). While it's nice to be humble I just need to make sure you face reality
- you are a pretty girl.
Be a pretty girl who always works on her testimony, even when it's weak and
especially when it's weak you must go to church every week. Look around at all the
good people you know who have slipped ever so slowly into the bog of inactivity,
appathy and even unbelief. Don't be one of them.
I really appreciate his insight.
And thank you dad. I love you! (my parents are in Hong Kong this week.
I miss them!)
