Grand Canyon nostalgia

You've just gotta eat your chocolate ice cream with barbecue chips! How come no one else agrees with me on that? If you had been there, you would certainly understand. By the way, I hear that the squirrels in the Grand Canyon don't speak German. I wonder what happened to the tadpole refuge Amanda and I set up? Did you know the North Rim of the Grand Canyon is haunted? I'll tell that story sometime, but I'd better stop now.

What reason have you got to be miserable? You're rich enough.

There is never enough time to do or say all the things that we would wish. The thing is to try to do as much as you can in the time that you have. Remember Scrooge, time is short, and suddenly, you're not here any more.

A fun day at Summerhays

Today TJ and I couldn't stop laughing about random things. Alex didn't help the problem, either. I haven't had this much fun at work since Ron left (oh, I miss Ron!).

Here are a few quotes from Alex:
"Hey, I'm not making fun of your spiritual leg experience. Well, ok, now I am."
"I can't be a good judge of character in just...4 days."
"You should see the before. It's worse than the now!"
"His wife wants to have eight children. But he only wants to have zero."

And the best quote of the night is from TJ:
Me: TJ, line one is for you.
TJ: *picks up the phone* Hi mom!
BT: *on the other end of the phone* I am NOT your mother!
Me: *laughing hysterically*

(Okay, so you would have to be there to know how funny this stuff really is. But trust me, it was absolutely hilarious at the time)

When you turn a gift away from your door, it goes to the one who takes it in.

I watched A Simple Twist of Fate today. It's been years since I've seen that movie, but I still love it! Movie party!

Although it's a little disturbing...

...this picture does make me laugh.

A depressing doctor appointment

This is hard for me! I love my long legs-I love being tall. It's dumb, but it's true. Especially after talking to Mr. Clinton yesterday. Boy, that was enlightening. ;) But there will come a time when I will have to give up something I love for something (or someone) I love even more. That might be a really hard decision for me.

Two "secret pictures"

Just for fun.

Happiness is whatever you want it to be

A very short list of things that make me really happy. More to come, I'm sure.

How I'm feeling today:

I'm in a really bad mood.

Big Tuna

I love him. Just love. Really, I almost love him more than I love Almonzo Wilder.

Look for a sky of blue

I just felt like posting some Little Mary pictures. It's kinda sorta almost been one year! I love Little Mary Sunshine!

A rather sentimental blog (AKA Natalie almost cried while talking to Mr. Bowman today)

You know the movie Father of the Bride? I love that one. But it makes me sad. Since it's told from the Father's point of view, it makes me feel bad when he gets all sad that his daughter is leaving. It's so hard, especially knowing that my dad and I are going to go through this exact situation in a matter of years. I love my dad so much-I don't really know how to explain it. I have this desire to move on with my life; at the same time, I feel sorrowful at the thought of leaving my family, most especially my mom and dad.

Anyway, the reason why I'm thinking about this stuff is because Mr. Bowman's daughter is getting married tomorrow, and today when I was talking to him he mentioned he'll be sad when she isn't around anymore to just hang out with. Things change, and that's hard.

Sometimes, I have a really hard time with change.

You may ask, "How did this tradition get started?"

I'll tell you...I don't know.
This is such a typical picture of our Fiddler family. The boys getting in trouble by dad. JJ doing whatever he wants. Erica Erica, and Abby and I doing each other's hair, while our mother looks on. Nice.
