March Madness...and I don't mean basketball

The most relevant news of late is probably Tarah-relatedness. Earlier this week she gave us quite a scare from an especially bad episode that ended in a seizure because she didn't her pain meds on time (it was decided that the seizure was a result of her pain being too much for her and so she stopped breathing). We had to call an ambulance and she was stabilized before they got to our house, but they took her in anyway. They did some tests and sent her home, but this just proved that something needs to be done now, because its getting worse.

Her doctor (well, one of them) wanted to send her back to Denver now (she was there last year around Christmas for about 2 weeks and nothing really happened). And just today, we got a call from Dad telling us that they have her scheduled to fly over tomorrow morning! Meaning, no Easter with Mom and Tarah. Daniel, Jacob, and I all have to go back to school on Monday, which is a bummer because it would've been helpful if we could've been around while she's gone. There's no telling how long they'll keep her there, because last time it was about 2 weeks.

So, that's what's going on with Tarah. They're looking into some sort of pain disorder now. But anyway, the rest of life is pretty good. There's been a lot of church lately, with Holy Week. I'm home right now with Tarah because she can't go to church, everyone else is at Good Friday service.

Last night we (Jacob, Ethan, Joel, and I) got to go visit a newborn of our old boss, which was really great. And then we got to go to a friends' house and just hang out, which was really nice. I haven't touched homework this entire break, so I don't even know what I have to do. I'm going to be pretty sorry when I get back to school, I have a feeling. But I'm not worrying about that right now:). As Scarlett O'Hara would say, ""I can't think about that right now. If I do, I'll go crazy. I'll think about that tomorrow."

*sigh* So, its been a little more eventful than I would've hoped for, but it is what it is. God knows what He's doing, even if we have no idea. But any prayers would be much appreciated. Thanks guys, I love you all! Oh, and I can't forget that March Madness is underway:). TTFN!

Home Sweet Home

I am home! Wahoo! I love home! I was telling a friend that home is by far where I feel the most loved and I love loving them right back:). It's one of my favorite things to do. *sigh* Everyone is home now except for Daniel, and he should be home anytime now.
Tarah has not been doing well lately, so it's great that we're all home now because she loves it when we're all home:). Yay break! was almost like summer yesterday! Well, 40s, but to me that's practically summer:). I went for a walk on the winding dirt roads, and it was gorgeous because everything was starting to melt. Spring is peeking through! There were mini streams everywhere from all the snow melting, and even a mini waterfall (I'll have pictures on facebook at some point).
I got my hair cut today. I ran into two awesome people that I haven't seen for a very long time. I got to watch "Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium" with the coolest little brothers and sisters ever (great movie, you should see it), and I got to see Jacob's mohawk in person for the first time. It's been a pretty good day!
And now, I'm off to go join said cool little-ings to watch "Chicken Run." We're waiting for Mom and Dad to get back, they're out on a date:). Tehe.
And now, I am off to answer the call of "Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeey, don't touch me!" Gotta love 'em.

I have no officially survived my first official bachelorette party (I've been to bridal showers before, but that doesn't count). Actually, I also survived planning and co-hosting it, too:). Hehe. It was great fun and there was much sketchiness had by all. Let's just say that mad libs at a bachelorette party turn from the path of innocence pretty darn quickly. And that's the extent of the detail to be posted on a blog:).

It's been a busy weekend. Eryn and I have been planning for that party for our friend Kirbee for the past month or so, and were up making food for it at 9am, and then it went till about 8:30ish, and right after that I ran back to campus for a band concert that Eryn and lots of other peoples I know were in, and then came back to my room and finished watching a movie called "Elizabeth," which was quite good. Very brutal, but good. Cate Blanchett makes one wicked queen (in a good way).

And now I'm going to tally all the homework that stands between me and spring break. As of now, off of the top of my head, I can think of one test and three papers. *sigh* But...its not a full school week! I pretty much am home free once I get past Wednesday. Then...HOME! And Adam will be home! I haven't seen him since Christmas. Apparently he had to spend the night in the airport that night...*guilty giggle*. Actually, I don't feel terribly guilty for giggling at him, I feel guilty more on account that I DON'T feel guilty. Haha, ok, I'm going to stop now.

Onward and homework. Huzzah. Happy Sunday to all!

Is it a "happy-to-be-alive" day?

...down came the snow and washed the color out.
No, actually, last night the snow was abosultely gorgeous. I was working on a paper till about 2am last night (ok, maybe it wasn't ALL paper writing, maybe there was a LITTLE "Lost" watching...) and when I walked back to my dorm there were the most gorgeous, big fat flakes of snow falling that I had ever seen. It was more like floating than falling. And it wasn't terribly cold. Perfect. *sigh*

I'm doing remarkably well at this whole posting thing (just wait till break, though). Today has been a constructive day, at best. I went to class! I think that can be classified as constructive. Aslo, I am currently getting paid to sit here and type. That's right. Work was cancelled because of the eventful fire incident in the theatre department the other day. And seeing as how the costume shop is a part of that, we aren't allowed in due to smoke smells (or something), but we still get paid for when we would've normally worked:). No complaints here.

Tonight shall entail orchestra, dinner, and writing about ballet. Yay! That's right, I get to write about ballet. We have a personal choice essay due on Friday and I am writing mine on the origins of ballet. In the words of Sonja...*celebratory hand motions*. And that is all...for now. May you all have a most joyous and splendiferous "happy-to-be-alive" day. Because I'm happy that you're alive:).

Ok, and...bye.

Escape'...hey, that looks a lot like the word 'escape'!

Well, seeing as how it is a new month, I shall post a new post (especially since I know Anna is itching for another one;).

For starters, I had a marvelous weekend. It consisted of marvelously enjoyable peoples, ridiculous boys (who we determined were more girly than we were), a NICE hotel, crazy car rides, and the Mall of America! See Facebook for pictures:). It was a wonderful off-campus escape, which was greatly needed and greatly effective. There was much celebrating had by all, and much more fun than that. *sigh* Alas, I did not want to come back.

Now I am back in the real world, but the high is still wearing off, I think:). I just hope I can hang on to it till spring break, but I doubt it. We'll see. Life is just a little eventful of late. But that's ok. At least it's not boring, right? And I am surrounded by wonderful people to make sure I don't get lost amid the craziness:). Yay for people to save me from other people:).

God is good. That's a given. He's amazing, actually. And today feels/looks like spring. Its a tad chilly from the wind, but I can tell spring is peeking through. I think (cross my fingers). Oh, and excitement of the day was the fire alarm sounding TWICE during one of my classes (there was actually a fire in the theatre arts department). And now, I am in a computer lab in the basement of my dorm and the laundry room was filled with smoke. Sheesh, what's going on today.

Anyway, back to happy paper writing. Huzzah...not really. Fare thee well, until next time.
