Just words for now...

I have a sore throat. As in...the WORST SORE THROAT KNOWN TO MAN! I guess I don't know that it is the worst known to man, but it most definitely the WORST I have ever felt in MY LIFE! This is the truth. It hurt so bad last night, that I was bawling my eyes out to Clay at 12:30 at night....to the point that he said, "Do you want me to go get you a shake from Wendy's?" HA! Such a sweety. I of course, reacted like so, "Are you kidding me?! And give me HEART BURN ALL NIGHT?! That would be the WORST combination in THE WORLD! But...thanks!" Yeah. I'm a sweet thang aren't I?

Well, Wedns my throat hurt so bad that I only ate breakfast which consisted of a bananna and grapes...that is ALL I ate...ALL DAY. Maybe a cookie once. Anyway, then the next day...I just ate soup- which was disgusting, and didn't fill me up. Needless to say, by last night I was STARVING! Thus, the above conversation.

I was so stressed last night because I had skipped a total of like...4 classes this week 5 counting this morning, and I NEVER SKIP CLASS! So I was really stressed, but I really couldn't focus I was in so much pain. Oh yes- and I was getting the chills and my body ached. Not to mention I had a HUGE essay due, a HUGE assignment due, and a TEST in a class that I hadn't gone to all week. So I think that also contributed to the tears. I just prayed to Heavenly Father SO much that I would be able to prioritize my things well, and figure out what was most important for me to do- and the most amazing thing happened...everything worked out just fine= ) I e-mailed my sewing teacher who is the most wonderful woman ever, and I said how I was even more sick than I was Wends, and I couldn't make it to class, and she replied "You get better, I'm so sorry!" no biggie...you know...so I woke up around 9:00 and was able to study for my test, work on my assignment, shower, get to school, get 8 out of 10 on my assignment, and pass my test (notice I didnt' put my score? Yeah...it definitely wasn't an A) , and got all my stresses out of the way. I don't know that I deserved all of that...but either way, I'm so grateful. I KNOW Heavenly Father had a hand in everything that's gone down today...

Tomorrow will be a nice and BUSY day. I go to work from 10am-1pm...go Idaho Falls to Amanda's (Clay's cousin) daughter's birthday party at 2pm...go to Joanns at some point (60% off spring apperal fabrics! and 50% off clearance!)...go to Dollar Store to get a prize for one of our kids in primary who got 10 stickers...go to Jenni's bridal shower at 6:30pm (which is in Rexburg and also which I don't have a present for and pretty much, sorry Jenni- I love you but you're not getting a present...this week has been THAT crazy and yeah. I'm poor.) And yeah. That's the day. Then of course the next day we get to attempt teaching 9 little crazies in primary. Will I ever get healthy again? Probably never. But, I have realized the glories of smoothies. It has hurt SO MUCH to eat, meaning...as I've said, I haven't eaten. I got a smoothie, and it was wondrous! I didnt' hurt and I knew it was giving me health and strength. Wonderful. Anywayyyyyy....

22 days left of college. That ROCKS!

We decided we are going to take a picture of BOTH of us...and send out announcements. Pretty much AWESOME!

It is finally sunshining today. Halleluhia! It has been raining for like 2 weeks straight. People are like...oh you're from oregon, are you loving this? YEAH. RIGHT. I never loved it in Oregon! I really am just a sunshine kind of girl. No doubt about that. I LOVE sun and warmth...even HOTness.

Aight. I guess I'm going to go. Maybe I'll do a Bachelorette: UNPLUGGED post on Monday or Tuesday. Man...reality tv is genius. Or horrific. Both really. Either way...we pretty much love it.

Sorry you are so sick!! That's the pits! I love broccoli braid too, I wanted to put a picture, but mine doesn't look nearly as good as it tastes! 22 days, that's awesome! It will go so fast!

That is funny, I DO love the rain. And I love it when it rains here, it makes me feel like home. Even back home in the summer, I love it when it rains, I really do. I can't stand the hot everyday. Sorry you're sick. That REALLY stinks. You've been sick a LOT this year! I can relate. Do you have Strep? Do you have white spots on your throat? You sound pretty bad. Do you drink tea? Tea REALLY helps me when I'm sick. With honey and lemon. Or what Greg and I LOVE is squeezing a mandarin orange in a mug with a big scoop of honey and boiling water. It is the best and really soothing and relaxing. I used to HATE tea until I had coughing problems and then it soothed me so immediately I kept taking it and now I LOVE it! I would really give it a try. Good luck.

I'm so sorry you have been sick!!! I hate being sick. I'm glad your teacher was understanding about it. I don't love the rain but I do miss it if it goes too long w/o it. I love you!!

Yowsa danielle, you sound really bad. I am so sorry. I'm glad you are able to eat shakes. Those seem to be the only things I can eat when i'm sick, and bread. I'm so glad you got all your assignments worked out. It's fine that you didn't get an A on your test, you will be done soon, no more scholarships to worry about. I know- I'm really excited for the bachelorette! I love you!
