Lightning...among other things

Oh man. The BIGGEST lightning storm I've EVER seen is outside right now. I may be exaggerating though...I'm really not sure. All I know is the sky is lighting up every 15 seconds or so- and it is the brightness of looking straight at a camera flash- but brighter really, and seems to be coming STRAIGHT for my house. Did I ever tell anyone that I'm pretty scared of lightning and thunder storms? I always get really scared. I have NO IDEA why. Have I ever known or even heard of someone dying of a thunder/lightning storm? Nope! But they scare the heck out of me! I heard once that you're not supposed to have electronics plugged in during lightning storms...but I chose to ignore that cause I need SOMEthing to distract me.

So, our friend Lance and his brother (Lance we knew from Rexburg, and he has since moved to Utah to go to BYU) had to come to Rexburg for some appointment or other, and asked if they could stay with us for the night. We were thrilled! Clay especially- cause Lance was always a pretty solid gaming buddy. So Clay, all week...has said things like "Now hun, you are fine with us gaming for a long time right?" I say, "Of course. That's what I expected." I decided that while he is gaming, I'd make a date with my sewing room! Oh man. I'm so excited for tomorrow cause I'll take a picture of my favorite apron I've EVER made before. I made it from all extra fabrics I had laying around, along with a shirt Clay didn't wear anymore. Truly wonderful. I just love it so much.

So I'm getting more and more excited for Eclipse. June 30...next wednesday...I am SO EXCITED! I've started looking up all these clips and interviews of the cast...I just can't help it. I'm pretty sure it's gonna be great.

I love summer. I'm surrounded by crazy people who say, "I would rather be too cold than too hot". I always say, "I'd definitely rather be too hot" They always look at me like I'm crazy, and say something stupid like, "You can always put more clothes on, but you can only take so many clothes off..............." or, "Then you'd be all sweaty" My response? "I prefer sweat over pain" Cause that's what you feel when it's too cold- PAIN! Sweat...who freaking cares. I love the sun. And the heat. You know how people hate it when they get in a car and it is SO HOT that you feel like you stepped in an oven? I love it. It's one of my favorite things. Sometimes, I just sit there cause I love it so much. I love the feeling of my skin being baked. That sounds weird, but it's true. However I HATE the feeling of FEAR that my ear will CHIP OFF because it's frozen. I'm not joking. I've feared that....how it goes is- you're so cold that you get delusional and lose all common sense...and you start fearing the worst. Happens every winter. But, this is all just to say- Summer has come, and I'm happy. It's so much easier to get up in the morning.

I stepped on a pin today. As in...the pin STUCK IN my foot. It hurt pretty bad. But since no one was around to listen to me whine, I just shook it off and went back to my sewing.

It's really funny to listen to Clay play games with friends. I hear shouts all the time like, "DUDE- THAT WAS AWESOME!" or "Oh Man....that was beautiful" or "SON of a" (really that's all they say...like they don't cuss at the end of that or anything...they just say "son of a") or really anything like that. They are pretty involved. I went down there to tell them about the lightning storm and I'm pretty sure they didn't hear me.

I hate going to the fabric store. But I love it too. I love it because everything is so pretty and I get all these marvelous ideas. I hate it because everything is beautiful and I can never buy it all. Ugh. Now I'm just daydreaming about all these fabrics that I could make totes with. I think I need to have a talk with Clay about it.

Well...I'm tired, hungry, and thirsty. But I'm thinkin I'm just gonna go to bed. I'm TUCKERED OUT! But I'm so happy tomorrow is only Saturday. YAY! Peace OUT.

I hate thunder and lighting and your great grandpa my father hated them with a passion. So I think it is in your genes or dna or something. I love you and those totes are way awesome. Hugs and kisses

Okay, so I totally agree with the whole "fear of frozen ear chipping off" and preferring the innocence of sweat to that. Definitely agree, don't even need to think about it.

The lightening storm. So this is our story. The first few times I just thought, what is that, then it kept going and I got it. By then, Aliese came out, and said, "Mama, I think something is really wrong with my eyes, because I keep seeing flashing light." So sad, so funny. I told her it was lightening,, and she was soooooooo relieved. Love you.

I kind of like lightening storms, someday I will have to tell you about Judy and my crazy lightening experience. The whole heat thing, I am just like you or vice versa, right down to the hot car. The first thing your dad does is open the windows, I immediately close mine. I love the heat!!! I wouldn't want to live where Lizzie lives, but if I had to choose between Idaho and Southern CA. Calif. would win every time!! Oh the fabric store.... I miss it! It seems like I get to go about 4 times a year! Glad you get to sew! I am waiting for that day again! Maybe next week, we'll see! love you!

When you said you like the feeling of being baked, I thought... "if we weren't mormon, and believed in cremation, Danielle should be cremated." ok- that sounded bad but you get what I mean- it was supposed to be funny but came out freaky- haha. anyway- I knwo the feeling of fabric stores- and I have this thing where when they have REALLY GOOD deals, I want to stock up- "just in case" and then I have an even worse sickness, getting fabric for my children that don't exist yet!!!!!! Brother. I've stopped doing it, but the thought is still there- "what if little jimmy wants to be a bear for halloween, that fur fabric is a screamin deal! clearance, 50% off, plus 10% off total purchase" uhhhhh sickness. Lightning, I LOVE LIGHTNING STORMS! I wish they had more of them- I think they're exciting! I love looking otuside and seeing that flash thing you were talking about. That is so funny about Clay and his friend and the things they say - I love the - son of a- ahahha- Mike says "Oh man" alot, or "that was amazing- or awesome" alot- haha. Does Clay dream in wars and super hero stuff too? hhaa- mike does. I love you! can't wait for your project posts! I love tehm!
