How does this keep happening to me?

I actually do like having something to write about... This was harder than I thought it would be... and it is rather lengthy....go ahead and skim, but you better let me know you looked at it! Sorry for the typos...

20 years ago: i was much younger! wandering aimlessly in st. george; 14.... uh..... wanting a boy 3 years older than me and driving him crazy with always being around, sorry Bry; seriously goofing off with April and Zann; really can't remember much more...
10 years ago: ohhhh 24. just bought our first house (holy crap) in surprise, az; working for the post office and keeping joel from school work as much as possible; got tattoo'd (do you know where it is?) for our 3rd anniversary; got myself knocked up with's almost 10 years to impregnation; loving the heat in AZ.
5 years ago: mother to two boys; bought our 2nd house in pleasant grove; volunteering at a preschool so Jack could go for free; sporting a super sweet scar across my neck where half of my thyroid was removed; convinced I was a complete woman with my 3 guys;
3 years ago: THIS IS ACTUALLY A 3-4 year reliving, Found myself pregnant again and swore up and down it was an accident, but truth be known.... Kourtney had called to tell me she was with child and I caught the bug~ kourt figured my cycle and OOPS, Joel-katey's a comin'... got myself a girl. she was due on halloween. Not wanting to screw up my very most favorite holiday, I scheduled to be induced 6 days early. (see, I am so selfish) As soon as she was born, we put our house up for sale for a move to Omaha ~somewhere in middle America... but moved to Minnetonka, Mn, instead. Made my first grown-up BFF's. Tammy, Myriam, Jen.... miss you more than you know.
1 year ago: ok....1-2 years ago....Bought ourselves our 3rd house, back in Utah. (we go where Joel is desired); on a whim and I mean by the seat of my pants, started Saying It Simply with Kourt, my bestest BFF ever. Need I say more?
So far this year: emailed potential customers for saying it simply; started blogging; became seriously addicted to blogging and checking for comments~ come on, peeps, let me know you are out there. even if you don't know me at all. we could be friends~; happy to have "IT" (from saying IT simply) back home~welcome back, kell! made a new year's rez to attend anything I am invited to... met my new BFF's Jennifer, Jennifer and Jessica (didn't know you were, did you girls?) broke my Nikon d50:(
Yesterday: emailed potential customers for saying it simply; brain busted with Kourt on up & coming goodies for S.I.S.; listed orders for S.I.S.; dinner w/dalley's and g'pa and g'ma hartung; worked hard at helping Jack on a book report; talked to April for 1 minute about blogging-
Today: emailed potential customers for saying it simply; hoping to get an A on a book report for jack's 3rd grade class; shooting the breeze with Jennifer for 20 mins about Scentsy and stuff (yum);saw Bevany @Target; bought Katey a super-styled hoodie; tried to saw wood for major orders in the IN box; picked up the snow shovel from the middle of my yard-we are so white trash wanna-be's; bought a new pocket camera so I can update the blogs.

Okey dokey.... April, Rachel, Erinne, Kelli, Chrissy, Marian and Dad, Christina, Jennifer, Jennifer, Jessica, Woo and whomever may want to... I want you to leave comments that you ARE doing this for me! If you don't have a blog- get on it! gracias.

Chrissy said...

I will do this because I am probably as addicted to blogging as you are and it is always nice to have something to write about.

Yeah! least I know you are trying-remember watching DAYS Of Our LIVES after school at your house? :) happy to learn more about you!
Kourtney...thought you were my commenter. still waiting... I would really like to get to know you better, since we're sisters and all!

Rachel said...

OK, I'm doing this, but it's going to take a bit...I'm getting old and it's hard to think back that far...J/'s trying to find the time...I actually started - but only got so far as 10 years ya know - I enjoyed reading yours and Kourtney's though. Funny how time flies but is also just a thought away.

Bevany said...

Yay! I'm glad you did it. It was very fun to read...and I love that I was in it!!!
