Fun and Tears

I mentioned earlier that life has been pretty hectic this week because of Judgement House and school. Last night I had some math to do so after work and a hot shower I got started. I went to bed around 11 something. Not the latest, but I really didn't want to get up at 5:30 to take another test before work. I usually leave the house to get to work on time at 7:45. It's not far away but I hate being late. At 7:44 this morning I was running around the house trying to get to the dryer to get my jeans with a t-shirt and panties on and a piece of turkey bacon in my hand. But I got their by eight.

Wednesday was out our first night in Judgement House. Y'all, it is so much fun! I love it. Luckily being in the heaven scene means people don't come through as quick as the others so we get a little more down time. I have met a lot of very nice people. I am really liking this church. Don't worry, it will never be Ider Baptist (I still love y'all), but it's great.

Let me tell you a little about our scene...... It starts out with the people walking through coming in and they stand in front of the gate. A sweet little girl H, runs and says " Jesus! Jesus! Their Here! Their Here!(She is so precious. It makes my heart melt!)
Jesus: "Open the gate and let my people in."
L opens the gate and the people are SUPPOSED to make a semi-circle (they don't always cooperate)
Two characters come through and say their lines (I won't go through all that.) But, Jesus goes around and says something to each person. When he finishes, this is the part that gives me chill bumps, he comes back to the front and says:"Enjoy the place I have created for you. Time cease to exist. Your eternity now begins." Tear drop. Tear drop.

If I haven't lost you, you now know a little about how it goes. Wednesday night in the middle of one of Jesus trips around the room, we hear a (excuse my poor spelling of sound effects) cacccchhhhhhh! Yeah, I'm not good at sound effects, it's a toilet. We are set up in the fellowship hall right beside the bathrooms, and someone would have had to open the door as soon as someone else flushed. It added a great touch!LOL

Our first group tonight was a group of some older people. There was this little old lady with a walker that was in that group. Everyone held their composure until Jesus (C) came around and and whispered to her, and the poor lady just squalled. I hate seeing old people cry! It's the worst! Well that made me cry of course. I could just imagine what was going through her head. One day she would be standing in front of her Savior and him telling her "Well done my good and faithful servant!"I'm crying just typing it. sniff. sniff.It has been great. I know God has a hand in it, and it will turn out to give him glory. They are taping it so when the video is made I will try to get it on here. Still one more day to go.

Well, it's 11:30. I'm pooped and going to bed. Love you all.

This week is going to very busy so I doubt there will be anymore post this week, but you never know. This week is our Judgement House and one of the busiest weeks of my school life. I am going today to get some information from Columbia State. (The branch in Lewisburg) I am trying to see if they can give me any information about a loan and getting into school by next semester. Even though I haven't been in Tennessee for a year. We'll see.I also have a butt load of math to do and to write some on my essay!!!We also have dress rehearsal tonight at 6:30. I am an angel in the judgement house. It is going to be fun. The only problem is Heaven is way too hot!We are in the building and the rest of the scenes are set up under tents outside so it's cold everywhere else but in heaven. We have to solve that problem because their are quite a few people in there. Anyway, I have to go get ready and get my day started! Hope everyone has a great day. Love you all!

Last Minute Customers!

So... I got a new phone this evening. After work, I met mom at the verizon place and we got new phones. WOOOHOOO. The people working loved us so very much because we came in about ten after five and they close at five thirty! We were their favorite customers of the day, you know it!I hate to be that way, but I don't get off until five and waiting until tomorrow would just be insane!Right? The lady checking us out wasen't as overjoyed as I was too get my new phone. I can't say I would have been in the best mood either.

***This has nothing to do with phones, this is just how my scattered mind works. You would not believe the people that order cakes and forget to pick them up. They always get picked up, but sometimes not without a phone call. We close at five, and at about 4:55 today I called a lady who had an order of 2 cakes and and order of 3 dozen cookies. I couldn't get a hold of her, but I'm sure she picked them up later. I just think that's something pretty important that I don't think I would forget.....I can't say anything, give me enough time and I will do something of that sort.***

Anyway, I got a LG enV²™ in Black. Mom got the red/maroon one.

I like it. It opens to a full key pad for easy texting, but still small enough to fit in your pocket! It's smaller, slimmer, and sleeker than ever! Forget the bakery, I'm going to work for

On another note, I need a remedy for dry skin. Lotion just dosent do the trick. My hands are terribly dry. I have heard to put some kind of vassaline type lotion and then put cotton gloves on while you sleep. I haven't tried it yet but it's worth a shot. Does anybody know another solution?

Well, I am going to play around with my phone. Love you all.

Posting Two Days in a Roll!!!!Don't worry I checked my temp. I'm not sick.

I need some help with my ipod. When I plug it in to my laptop it says that it can't do anything with it because it is already in another library. That library being the one at sisters house.I want to make it compatible with a new library, the one on my computer. Does anyone know how to do that? I don't want to lose the songs I have on here because they came from cds of friends and I will never get them all back on there. So if you know how let me know please.

Also I want to change my blog. When I started it I didn't know what I was doing and just typed in "I'll Try." It has no significance to anything whatsoever. I started another one a while back called "The Dessert Fairy", but like I'm gonna write on two. HA. I don't write on one half the time. Anyway, I think the name is kinda gay, but I kinda like it too. I have loaned out a software to a friend but when I get it back, and find the time I am going to attempt to make my on layout.I want to change it up and maybe I will post more if I like the way it looks. So... for my sake of really wanting to do a poll, here we go.........

Cakes and Cookies

This past week was crazy, but lots of fun. My grandmothers birthday was Thursday, Oct. 16. (Don't hold me to that one.) Anyway, we went down Friday after work and Saturday celebrated her birthday. I wanted to make her a cake so I did but I also wanted to make a few other things. I had originally thought of making the kids of The Preacher's Wife some cookies. I just got these cool new sports cookie cutters.Then I had leftover batter so I made a small cake for "the girl" and some mini football cakes. Can you say over ambitious. Making all of this was fun it was the transporting them 2 1/2 hours that was not the fun part. I'll get back to that first, here are the pics.

This is Grand's cake.

Boy #1,#2, and#3's cookies.LOL. Luckily I took the picture before they turned. By the time I got them to the kids they were mutating into a green jersey. The black food coloring had bled and was turning the edges of the number green. Blah! I hate black food coloring. It always bleeds on me. If anyone know how to stop that let me know!Please.

Mini Footballs!

Lastly, "the girls" cake.

.....back to the transporting part. In my mom's car we had four people, a dog, and my lap stacked with three cake boxes trying to get to Ider and on the way attempting to eat. The longest two hours!!!! I didn't think the cakes were going to make it. I was holding on for dear life. Around every curve I attempted to move with the motion of the car so the cakes wouldn't slide. But they made it safe and sound. With the exception of the bleeding jerseys!LOL!

I have got to do some more homework. Just another joy in my life!!!HaHa! Hope you all have a great day! Love you all!!

To My Aunt Pat

Aunt Pat,
This is especially for you. I know you check it everyday and I never write. Sorry.....

for everyone:
Things are going well in Lewisburg. I am enjoying it but the reason I never write is I have a pretty boring life. I get up do homework and go to bed. I did get the job at the bakery so on Thursday and Friday I am makin' cakes all day. I could tell some pretty funny stories of the cakes people have requested, but they are not always appropriate. LOL! I will try to write a little every couple days, but I can't promise for everyday. One thing I will share is how crazy my math class is. It is "Math for Elementary Teachers." I was doing an addition problem and it asked me to do the problem in Russian Peasant Method. I kid you not. If only you could have seen the look on my face. What the crap? What will they think of next to teach kids. This class is meant to teach me how to teach kids how to do math, and never in my elementary years do I remember adding the Russian Peasant Method, but I bet I will never forget.

Today me and mom went to Chattanooga and met my sister where we bought her wedding dress!!!!!!!!Yay!!! It's gorgeous!!!She is going to look BEAUTIFUL.I have a pic. of me and her in the dress but she would kill me if I showed the everyone before her reception. Special thanks to the people throwing her the shower. I will see you all then. I will be in town Friday night after work and Sat., but I wont be at church Sunday. Maybe I will see some of you around town.

Well I am out for tonight. I am multi-tasking, writing and watchin "You've Got Mail", and I want to get back into the movie. Love you all.

PS: Aunt Pat, I love you even though you called me a heiffer.LOL! Tell Kitty and Joe I love them too.
