"August 10 MonDay 1998
ToDay a man Kame to Fix are
Garbij Disqosal guess wo it was
the man who DiD majik at the VBS PiCniC At Aunt MarY'S
Church!" (picture goes here but the scanner isn't working)

Okay, so our garbage disposal was broken. A man came to fix it, and it turned out to be the man who had done magic tricks at our aunt and uncle's church VBS! We realized that was who he was when he took out a deck of cards and started doing card tricks with them. I remember being so amazed by it!

"August 29 SaturDay SaturDay

ToDay Daddy bilt a Corner Cabinet.
We Wached.When it Was Done
it was beautiful."

Some friends of ours sent a bunch of pieces for a corner cabinet with us when we visited them on vacation. When we got home, Dad put all of the pieces together. We still have that corner cabinet. We never stained it, but I think it's pretty just the same.

"September 2 Wednesday 1998
ToDay We are going to Ante Mary
And Uncle greg. and"

I guess we were going to visit the Schultz family that day, as we lived within 10 miles of them back then. We'll never know what happened, since I must have gotten distracted and walked away from my jounal at that point.

A few dayS ago I learned"

I don't remember what I learned that day, but it is comforting to know that I was indeed learning something back then.

"February 23 1999 TuesDay
Today it is Snowing! Mom said we can
play in the snow"

I don't remember this, but, then again, I don't remember a lot of things.

"Agest 15 1999

The yere is going by fast.
Last I new it was my birthday.
but that is in May. we movd to
IOWA in July on the weke of the 4 I thingk we got a kitten
in June Sunday"

I wrote this, one night, on the floor of the bedroom that I supposedly shared with Rebekah, though I can't remember her sleeping in that room more than twice in the year and a half that we lived there. You see that I wrote about Bad Kitty, who only just passed away this spring. She found us early on a Sunday morning, which is why I wrote June Sunday.

"Septembr 3 1999
Now wat was I"

I apparently started writing, but forgot what I was going to write about. That happened to me an awful lot. As I flip through my old journal, I find many places where I wrote the date, but nothing else. For example, on the same page, I crossed out September 1 Tuesday 1998, Seqtember 23 1998 Wednes Day, and October 7 Wednesday 1998.

Okay, so I started a new blog today!!!
You all (all two of my readers) should totally read it. You should also yell at me if I don't update for more than two weeks.

Monday, May 12, 2008

Okay, so I'm turning 16 this week, and I was thinking I should start a new blog, and make this one just for old journal posts. Then maybe I'll keep up with them.
So, if anyone had an idea for a name for my new blog, please comment on that by Friday.
I'll try to start posting about old journal posts again soon. If I don't, please bug me about it so I remember.

We had So mach fan."

First off, I apologise for not posting in almost two months. I've been busy. See, normally I have no life, and have all the time in the world to do things like read fan fiction and post on blogs, but recently I've actually had what some might call a life, and that scares me.
Our vacation in May to visit grandparents was lots of fun. My aunt got married, and we all had a great time at the reception. I'm sure Rachel can find you some pictures from that.
In June, I auditioned for StageStruck's summer show, Li'l Abner, and was cast as Senator Jack S. Phogbound. I had a lot of fun with that. It ended a week ago, and I'm all sad 'cause now I don't have much of a life. I liked having a life. I got to see lots of people from Bye Bye Birdie, and met some new people too. I'll have to audition for Charlotte's Webb this fall.
We are leaving for the For You conference in Asheville tomorrow morning really early. I can't wait!!! Rachel had so much fun at The Feast last summer, and she told us all about it, and she just made it sound like the best thing ever! I really should be packing instead of posting on my blog, but this is just so much more fun.
Also, I should have my journal entries from this month posted in the next week or so.

My toads died, but not too long until my birthday!
I'll tell you how many days...8 days is how many.
I can't wait!! I'll have cake and ice cream. I'll
get presents. I'm sure they'll be fun. Oh... how
I can't wait! I'm so excited!

I watched my first hockey game today. It was
on tv. The Sabres won. That's who I was
rooting for. I felt so happy that I had to jump up and down.

In only two days it is Mother's Day. Rachel asked
me what I should make. She said I could use
her Highlights.

Sat. May 9 Tonight Daddy found a FROG. It is very
small. I've found toads this small. This frog
has sticky feet. Mommy thinks he's a tree frog.
Daddy found the frog in the basement.
I found a Box turtle today! It was pretty.
he had yellow and red stripes on his head. He
has long toenails and fingernails. Daddy filled
the pool for the Box turtle with a little bit of water.
Daddy also put a big, flat rock in the pool.
My birthday is in only a week."

I loved those toads. I was so sad that I accidentally squeezed them to death. Whenever I think about that, I feel guilty. I was only six, and didn't know any better, but I feel bad all the same. I loved them a little too much, I guess.
I remember that turtle. We've found many a read-eared box turtle since then. I recall, Mom had just called us to come in and get ready for bed. We all came running to the house. As I was running, I ran past what turned out to be a large turtle, just sitting on our lawn!
We leave for vacation tomorrow night. I really hate the day we leave on vacation. I just have to keep thinking about getting there, and having a jolly good time, wot?
Sorry. I do that too much. :)
I ran out of yarn for my current crochet project. It's really worrying me that I won't be able to finish it before we leave. It really is almost done, but I wanted it to be all finished before we left so's I could impress Grandma Sue with how nice it looks.
Please pray for the people of Greensburg, KS. I know you all have been hearing about it a lot on the news. When we lived in Larned, KS, Dad served a vacancy in Greensburg. We made some wonderful friends there. I spent my 10th birthday with those great people. So far as we know at the moment, no one we knew died, but many of them lost everything. It is still hard to believe that the church, the park next door, the water tower, everything is gone!

Two days ago or maybe three Jojo found a toad.
Bekah picked it up. Mommy got a coffee can and
we put the toad in the can. We looked in the
"Pets In A Jar" book and we found out that the toad
eats earthworms and caterpillars and grasshoppers
and crickets. We also found out that a gallon jar was
what we should put him in. We put dirt in the can
so he could dig and we pit a little bit of water
so he would not die from the sun. I named him
He went behind the Barbie house. Once he went
and got stuck in the vetrinarian cage! Mommy took
it apart and got him out. She called me and I got
him out."

That incident was rather frightening. We had a little toy pet cage that we used for dolls, and I had put the toad inside of it, though I don't know why I did that. Hoppy had found a way to get himself stuck in the plastic wall of the cage! To this day, I still don't know how he did it. Mom had to take the cage apart with a screwdriver to get my toad out. We found another toad a few days latter, who I named Jumpy. I loved those toads. No, I couldn't write so well at six years old. I was dictating to Mom, who was nice enough to write all of that down for me.

TodaY it raind. MommY
think's that"

Well, I guess I once again got sidetracked in the middle of writing. I don't remember what Mom thought, but it's really not important now, is it?
I've spent most of yesterday and today working on my crochet project. It's coming very well. I'll get pictures of it when it's finished up here within the next month. Speaking of crocheting, I crocheted a purce for Bekah for her birthday last week. She's thirteen now.
My piano teacher wants me to play organ for Peace the first Sunday in May.
