Gotta get Better!

Well I was going to wow you all with great photos of life at the Rader's, but SOMEONE crashed my computer (mom!) and we have been waiting for my computer guy to restore everything. I keep telling him I need my favorites back!!! It is kinda scary how much we depend on a computer and store everything on it and when it crashes...I really want to kill people!!!

I had some great photos, especially the one of McFly when she shaved her eyebrows on her 12th birthday no less!! Yup...shaved from the top down and the sides off. I was so MAD I really wanted to beat the livin' daylights out of her but I guess looking stupid was punishment enough. Sad thing was...she didn't think it looked that bad! Seriously...was she adopted or what? That is such a Rader thing...not a Hall thing of course.

WB has been sick for a couple of weeks so I have been sequestered to the house leaving only to teach Relief Society because I am such a spiritual giant!!!!! Oh I kill myself sometimes I am so funny!!!! Hey it was my goal to become more spiritual this year and it is not working out so well for me. I do WANT it, I just gotta WORK for it.

I realize these are random ramblings but I finally saw Julie And Julia. I also wanted to be all positive and write something fetching everyday...but we can all see how that worked out for me also. Oh yeah, great year for me so far huh?

I have set a goal to finish what I start! My good friend Saint Colly is the most organized, talented, finishing, perfectionist I have ever met.Gee, that made sense didn't it? Yes...she annoys the crap out of me because we are at far different ends of the spectrum (yes...she is a spiritual saint) but she is the type that makes you feel good and worthwhile when you are with her and she does inspire me! So...I am going to finish 2 quilts before I start another one, Yea me.

As for inspiration, you all inspire me to laugh at myself (and others), be happy, and do my best...because that is what I see all of you doing. So funny and so talented...just trying to make it through another day just like me. So Julie...bite me! I can not cook like Julia although I love her, and I can't commit to doing something cool like you everyday except to not kill anyone. That is as good as it gets my friend.

So glad to hear from you again. Shaved eyebrow, it must be the age. I did that when I was 13. Then I penciled them in. Real bright!

Kristina P. said...

I hope she was able to draw her eyebrows on like a gangbanger.

Andrea said...

Oh man! The things I have to look forward to! Tori is already becoming a cute little terror! She is SO MUCH fun but definitely has the red-headed temper!

You make me laugh SO hard! You really need to blog more inspire me!

Amy Joy said...

Tori is not going to do that bc you are not judging. It didn't even cross my mind that that is something I would "have to look forward to."
So, when it happens I will think of this:)

1. the eye brows really were that bad!! Even I took a deep breath
2. You are a fantastic cook! However you could have told me about no cottage cheese in lasagna.
3. you are talented and spiritual so QUIT COMPLAINING!!!! LOOSER GIRL!!

Love you sister

April said...

Ummm....I think you've been told! That's what sisters are for! hehehe!

Marilyn said...

I have missed YOU so much!
Just do your best every day and that alone is a GREAT thing :)

Missy said...

I am so glad you are back!
I can believe she shaved her eyebrows! I see kids at school doing that very thing, especially girls! I have never got a good reason from them, but hey, it could be worse!

This Ozarks farm chick just saw the movie J&J last weekend and loved it! I keep so dang busy here on the Ponderosa, (our large working farm) and lovin' my eight grandkiddos I'm down to postin' about once a week. I also teach the Pre~teens (somebody has to)Sunday School class and am the Kid's Church leader. Man, life is busy! I truly enjoyed my trip through your blog today.

From the hills and hollers of Missouri, ya'll have a wonderfully blessed day!!!

I think not killing someone is a respectful goal.

I haven't seen that movie yet because I don't like being inspired... I just let myself down in the end.

Yea computers crashing suck.

Does she have a permanent surprised look? Just curious.

Thank you for your comment on my post at MMB. All adoptive parents hold a special place in my heart. : )
