Only the facts:

1) I arrive home at 2am and crawl into bed. Kris is already asleep
2) I sleep very heavily for about 2 1/2 hours
3) Something is very VERY wrong with my bed. The next thing I am aware of is that I'm on my knees huddled on the floor by Kris's bed.
4) My next thought is: AAAAHHHHHH!!!!!!
5) My next thought is: Curses!!!! I haven't had a night terror in two months! Why? Why?!
6) Kris asks me if I am ok. I mumble yes
7) Kris informs me she is bleeding a lot and asks if I will help her
8) I follow her into the bathroom and somehow come to understand my sudden movement made Acouchi (who was sleeping on Kris's pillow) Launch out the door, using Kris's face as the launch pad and her chin is now bleeding like a mo fo.
9) I stumble back to bed and spend the next two hours in dozing in and out.
10) I wake up and take Kris to the hospital because she is still bleeding and I have only just realized what the heck happened.
11) The doctor is freaking hilarious
12) Kris needs no stitches, but does need antibiotics
13) The lady at the computer was a) really really slow b) computer challenged and c) Very very hard not to laugh at.
15) The day continues. Happy Birthday Nate!!!!
16) I freaking have another night terror. That's two in a 12 hour period (that's a personal record) only this time I have it in front of Prattman and Nateizzle. GAH!!!!!! I am so sorry guys, I can't even tell you how sorry I am.
17) Kris, to you I also am so sorry. Oh babe, I am so sorry.

So this is what having friends feels like

The other day I came to an astonishing realization:

I am content.

How odd.

I like this. I'm not dying to change things around or to travel the world or to flip my whole life on it's head and I'm even satisfied that my baby girl is a cat. I've never had this happen before. I kind of like it.

It's so nice to be able to say: "hey, let's go to lunch, call up people and tell them to meet us there" and 5 (well, more like 45, gosh just go shower Nateizzle!) minutes later show up at a restaurant with a party of five and just have a blast. I love having a party every night. I love how someone can say "let's cook a really fancy dinner and invite people over to eat it" and have twenty people over bringing rolls and lemonade. It's amazing (and so was that sauce, my gosh that had a kick to it).

I love going through my day thinking: this is sooooo funny, Kris is going to die when I tell her this" and then tell her and she ends up laughing harder than I was.

I'm so happy with my life right now. So, I guess thanks to all my wonderful friends whom I adore so much. I will miss ye sarah the cheerful and Miriam the beautiful and Matt the. . .um. . .fish.
Farewell ye friends!!!! I'll see you in a few months. There are much adventures still to be had. And I know this summer shall be filled with friends and much spontinaity.

Also, because I've been thinking about it all day, has anyone besides Kris seen the last episode of Miricles ever filmed? That cliff hanger still has my attention. I mean, for crying out loud, THE BLOOD IS TRYING TO TELL US SOMETHING!!! but what? BUT WHAT??????
Ok, let's see if I can explain my last blog.

Last year I visited a certain Catholic priest who gave me some advice. Keep in mind that this man's advice is very valuable to me. I always take his advice seriously (and with a grain of salt mind you this man is an avid member of the NRA). Anyway, last year he turned my whole concept of reality upside down with these words: "Kayla, life is not a game."


Yes. Yes it is. Life is just one big game; it always has been and it always will be. What?

So for the last year I have pondered this. Is life supposed to be taken seriously? Is life meant to be plodded through come what may? Is more hanging in the balance than just winning or losing?

My conclusion is thus:

It's just an object. It's not what you think.

In other words: Life IS a game. A very complex game filled with mini games. Sometimes you lose, sometimes you win, in the end you'll be dead anyway. But life is just a game to be gambled, bribed, cheated and enjoyed.

Let the games begin

This last week has been a lot of fun.

Starting on Monday my work had seen it's share of drama. Usually I'm all up for it, but there is just too much deception accusations circulating. It's getting very old very quickly. Holidays are always stressful but Saturday was worse than ever. I really think I'm done. It's been wonderful working there and I've enjoyed it a lot, but it's time to move on to better paying, better communicating jobs.

On happier topics, there has been an adventure every night this week. So this is what having a social life is like.

Happy Easter!! Kris threw an Easter party this morning and it turned out to be a blast. It was quite enjoyable. After the party the quarkies came to our ward for church. It was hilarious. Kudos to Nate for eating confetti. Way to be. Mark/Matt was there with his fiance and they are so cute together. I really love my ward. It will be sad to see them go, and even sadder than mark/matt will no longer be my home teacher come July. But life continues onward and there are always better things around the next bend. Tonight there are plans to (finally) watch "The Prince of Egypt" which is an astonishingly well done movie. Life is excellent.

Today was amazing. Best day ever!!

I got up early and ran until my lungs asploded. I then took a shower(1)and went to the temple for the first time in a very long while. Wow. Just wow. In the temple I took a shower (2) but didn't have any hair stuff so when I got home I took a shower (3) and got ready for the day. I went shopping and considered myself extremely productive. Kris woke up and I went home only to go on a fantastic picnic. The picnic was followed by a walk around the park. That only made the day better.

Also, a certain RPG was bought and I am SO EXCITED!

Later I got to play Kickball with my whole ward. It was so great. I then went to a "smoke house" with a wonderful bunch of quarkies.

There was making cake and eating it too, there was cats attacking necks and then came the scariest moment of my life. Just so everyone knows, I have a very deep and abiding fear of singing in public, therefore, karaoke revolution is not a game for me. But everyone was so nice and encouraging and I was hyperventilating and I almost died. Finally I just sang. Oh! It was SO SCARY!!!! Seriously, I almost died. But people are so nice to me.

It was a great day

Day of Doom

I am officially not a teenager. I am now 20 years old. Gah! I'm so OLD!!

Actually, my birthday turned out to be quite wonderful. Instead of trying to hide my birthday by pretending it doesn't exist like I usually do I decided that this year I would face it head on. It turned out to be quite the wonderful birthday as far as birthdays go, everything went very well, everyone was so wonderful, and I think I'm ok with being ancient.

So monday was my official start of spring.
No shoes all day!!!!!!! well, almost all day, but I digress.
Monday I had the best wake up call ever but it only lasted for 30 seconds.
Kris and I went to visit the old catholic priest who apparently now is an action figure. Whatever. He gave me some good advice on my new brilliant idea and now, so I don't forget:


ok? great.

Anyway, much boring stuff later, Kris and I went over to the QPH to make sandwiches and invite everyone on a picnic. Pratt was the only one that came and we had an excellent time in the park. We then ran all over town, crammed Matt and Miriam into the car, and ended up in another park playing frisbee. Oh the joy!
We were joined by Russel and Brad just in time for some random tackeling, some grass fights and at one point I was taken captive by Matt.
Later we went Laser tagging which was wonderful! For the first time I was on the winning team. The music we played to was Star Wars, and at points it was the best laser tag music ever, but during some scores you felt like you should be rolling around in feilds rather than running around in the dark looking for red lights to shoot at. It was lots of fun.
Back to the QPH where I was introduced to a new band that had something to do with toads. The music was excellent. The night continued on and it turned out to be better than expected. Much better. Not that expected to be bad, I was expecting to have a good time, I just had a REALLY good time. anyway, I am rambling now.

Song of the day:YELLOWCARD!!!!!!!!

"Lights And Sounds"
Stop, turn, take a look around
At all the lights and sounds.
Let them bring you in.
Slow burn, let it all fade out,
Pull the curtain down.
I wonder where you've been?

Not so the end

So this is me: blogging again
For you Kris, I shall Blog.

I'm not sure if other people do this, but I live my life to a soundtrack. I have a new favorite song every week, sometimes every day.

Today my favorite song is Blink-182's Stay Together For The Kids. What a good song.

In other news, my favorite quote of the day was spoken by an apostle of God and were taken right out of my head. Jeffery R. Holland "If you are broken, He will [fix] you.

Go God.
