It's 83 degrees in Phoenix! Up the ladder with another platter, it's boss!

Another fun-filled evening on the telly with my crony Rachel. We talked of almost everything (as we do most late nights) and that particular night there was a thunderstorm outside of my window. Two hours into my future Rachel was at her home in Kansas mulling over her evening and thinking outloud. I love it when we can do that.

The lights were off in my room and my window was open. The lightning danced in front of me and I began to doze off. In the middle of a sentence I heard myself say words I didn't mean to say,

"They just need clean up their toys, they should just clean up their toys." As soon as I had said it we both stopped talking and Rachel said with a grin. I really should leave work at work.

"What did you just say?" We both burst into hysteric fits of laughter.

"That's it, you can never make fun of me for falling asleep on the phone because you...you just SPOKE in your sleep on the phone...about nothing subject related!" She said through her audible laughter.

I laughed too, turned on my light and said goodnight to my thunderstorm.

I miss my pal. Rachel, come to visit soon please.

Time between Christmas and my Birthday

I decided this music video was share-able just because this lady has caught my listening ears. Spiro, I remember when you asked me if I knew her while I was in Ukraine...I didn't fully understand that question until I realized she was from Russia....ooooh...

I remember when the most important part of my year was the short time span between Christmas and my birthday. When I was a kid it was like the time between meshed together. Those two days of celebration were the only things that really mattered. Oh that and when I was going to go on vacation to visit my cousins. Today at work the kids were having their normal four year old conversations (burping the ABC's, who's going to beat up who and who liked girls...yeah, at four, can you imagine?) One of the girls named Samantha looked up at me and says "After my birthday its Christmas!" I smiled nostalgically at that because I recalled that same exact feeling of excitement for those two days. I nodded my head and for all I knew her birthday was in August.

Being around him is like living in the thrilling time between Christmas and my birthday...enjoying the time but looking forward to the next time. I enjoy his company just as much as I enjoyed those two days. Maybe even a little bit more.

I've lived in Phoenix for approximately two years now and so many wild changes have been thrown in my direction. Times have been hard, horrible, good, funny, crazy, and lonely. I've felt about every emotion possible in the last two years...I've felt things I never thought I would have to feel and new things I had never felt before. But that's really besides the point. When I first moved here it was hard for me to adjust to having my family in every direction I turned. I had cousins that I had missed and loved since I was a kid and now, they were surrounding me. It was weird to adjust to talking with them, seeing them and beginning to view them as friends rather than simply the family connection we shared. There are a few reasons why I love those cousins. One of them is this picture. My cousin Jason sent it to me today. I had been driving in mad havoc to get to the bank and back to work all in my lunch hour. I stopped at home to get a check and saw this in my mail box. Who does this? He brought a smile to my face, full of laughter and joy...realizing how great his humor is and how without him even realizing it, he could brighten my entire day (not like I have some crazy mad for Colin Firth or anything...but hello, look at that picture, its hilarious.)

The other is a picture of my 4th of July and the excitement you can have with just a people who share a deep similarity but all contain these wild and crazy imaginations. That was one of the funnest times of this year...and let's face it, how often do we see rain here in Phoenix? Next to never. This is our attempt (we didn't have the right resources) for a Lost picture. That's me on the far left corner with Vincent. :) Err....Indiana.

This is Abbie and I just messing around...as if we were on a deserted island or something...

...So lately I've kind of entered into a sort of imagination-stretching experience. I started watching Lost a few months ago with my cousin and haven't really had time to stop...this show is incredible. It's really mind blowing.

I found a website that explains a lot of confusing stuff that goes on...if you haven't had a chance to dive into it and you have a free weekend I suggest you just buy the first season and go for it...give it a chance and let me know your thoughts on it.

Also and just for fun, I found this video a couple months back and I found it outright hillllarious...
