What to do....

...I'm bored. Nobody is posting over at the forum, mom and dad are gone shopping, and there is absolutely, positively, nothing to do!!!! Of course, I could go read the Fellowship, but....I don't' feel like reading. And I could post my FBI pictures (not that I could outdo Paul),but I am embarrassed to post them. Oh well. Hey! Here are some funny LOTR pictures (and one about Jack Sparrow) I found! Hehehe!!! In case you can't read the words I'll post them underneath each photo.

"Left hand, blue!"


"I'd tried my hardest but that fire on that hill just won't blow out!"


"Did no one come to rescue me just because they missed me?"


"Row, row, row, the boat......merrily down the stream.......once the ring belongs to me, I'll only need a queen." (That one is my fav!)
I'm off to see if anyone has posted on the forum....even though that is highly unlikely....and if no one has posted, I will read the Fellowship! Ta-ta!

My second award!!!

Trina, received the award and posted, "OK, how's this, if you are a Catholic blogger reading this post, you can have the award. OK? OK." So, since I am a Catholic, and periodically post Catholic things, I took the liberty of accepting the award! *big grin* I am not sure, but I believe Lady Rose gave me the award as well....*shrugs shoulders*.
So, here it is!
And I am going to copy Trina because I am being lazy right now. :P
And the Rules:

1) Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person that has granted the award and his or her blog link.
2) Pass the award to 15 other blogs that are worthy of this acknowledgment.
3) Remember to contact each of them to let them know they have been chosen for this award.
Ugh, I have to think of 15? I don't even know that many blogs!! :P

OK, how's this, if you are a Catholic blogger reading this post, you can have the award. OK? OK.

Guess where I am?

This is sooooo cool! I am in the car typing on my dad's work computer.......I'm lovin' it! I have never posted from the car before! I am on the way home from St. Martha's in Okemos (at the moment we are on the freeway in Lansing) where my mom, dad, and I had to go through a training course for teaching CCD. B-O-R-I-N-G.

Anyway, gas in town is $1.75!!!!!!

Gotta run!

Lord of the Rings Makeover

To all LOTR friends who have been striving to get me to read the books,
I am going to try to read the books. Yes, I have finally decided to start reading the Fellowship (from the beginning) and see how I like it. I will admit that I am (and have been) taken with the Elves for quite some time and when I took the Character quiz I found that I really am at heart! Whoop!!! Three times I was Legolas, and once I was Eowyn.

In the meantime, I have decided that it was time to refresh this blog with a new look. So, What do you guys think of my blogs new look? Please leave a comment and let me know!!!! Oh! And the title is my name in Elf. *grin*

Wow....

.....this is scarily accurate!



Your Hair Should Be Red



You are a passionate person... both in love and in life.

You have many causes that are important to you. You can be very intense.

You are very fiery. You speak up, and you don't mince words.

You also have a very flamboyant personality. You love to show off.

You are both eccentric and expressive. You like to share your unique point of view.

You can become quite impassioned. So impassioned that you can seem a little overbearing.

What Color Hair Should You Have?


You Should Drive a Blue Car



You're the type of driver who isn't hung up on the what car you drive.

You don't need a flashy car to show off your wealth or style.

Instead, you go for value and reliability. You're quite practical.

You're a great driver, but you don't show off. Part of your skill is not standing out on the road.






You Are the Bow Pose



You are an open hearted person. You seek connections and make them easily.

You are naturally generous - especially with your love and your time.



You have a knack for thinking up interesting ideas. You are an inventor and a creator.

You approach everything in life with a relaxed attitude. You accept what you can't change.

Prayers for Ashley

We got a phone call last night that my cousin's best friend had died. Her name is Ashely, and she would have been 18 in December. She was found dead in her bed Sunday morning. We don't know the cause of her death, but please pray for her soul and her family (who now only have one son left). Thank you.

Universal Declaration of Human Rights petition needs signing

Please participate; this will affect you future, and your children's future! This only takes a minute to make a difference for the unborn.

On December 10th, pro-abortion groups will present petitions asking the United Nation's General Assembly to make abortion a universally recognized human right. The Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute created an alternate petition drive that calls for government to interpret the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as protecting the unborn child from abortion. They need at least 100,000 signatures by December 10th, the 60th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Please go to the Website:http://www.c-fam.org/publications/id.95/default.asp and sign the petition. If you know anyone that would be interested in doing the same you are welcome to forward this on to whomever.
"A nation that aborts its own children is a nation without hope." -- Pope John Paul II

You won't believe this!!!!

Last night on the way to Mass, we passed our local gas station and the price was.....*drum roll*......$1.94. DID YOU READ THAT?????

I had a dream a few weeks ago that gas went down to $1.19...maybe it's going to come true!!!! *big smile*

Today:

I went to my first play in Michigan!!!! It was awesome! The title: "The Rose of Treason".

The Rose of Treason, a true story on the lives of Hans and Sophie Scholl is one of breathtaking courage, selflessness, and utter faith in what is right. The White Rose was a non-violent resistance movement in Nazi Germany which called for active opposition to dictator Adolph Hitler's regime. The group became known for an anonymous leaflet campaign, lasting from June 1942 until February 1943. The six core members of the group were arrested by the Gestapo and convicted of treason. Today, the members of the White Rose are honored in Germany as great heroes. This drama is an inspiring tribute to the goodness of humanity shining even in the darkest moments of history.

And darn it, I forgot to bring a camera! *hides in shame* It was performed by Homeschool Performing Arts (HPA) and it was cool because the actors' facial appearances resembled the real people!


Here is something sent to my family today. I love this clip!!!! Unfortunately I don't know how to post the video. *hits the computer* So here is the link: http://www.simpletruths.com/simpletruths/a.aspx?af=219&mo=stsr

Dear Lanta,

This post is just for you! (But if any one else want to take part that's fine.) Here are two "right side up"(:P) pictures of me so you can decide if I look older with or without glasses.

Check this out!

My brother Danny composed this song and he has never had a single piano lesson!

video

*ruffles up with sisterly pride* He needs a name for it and is asking for suggestions. So, names anyone?

To cut or not to cut? That is the question.

I am having the most difficult time deciding whether or not to cut my hair.
As you can see, it's rather long, which can be annoying at times.


This is just a dopey picture my brother took. Hehe!

Anyway, should I cut it, and if so, how short? I was thinking off the shoulders, because I haven't had my hair that short yet and it might look cute. *shrugs* If I do cut my hair I will donate it to Locks of Love.
So, to cut or not to cut?

Don't I look older with glasses? And no, I don't wear glasses (these are my Mom's).

It's over.

Barack Hussein Obama. President of the United States of America. Now the end begins.

I did it!

I just got back! :) We (my dad and I) didn't have to wait in line or anything; just walked in, filled out the Secret Ballot (I like the sound of that...it sounds so mysterious!), stuck it in the machine and left. Dad was a little frustrated with me, though, because I took so long to fill out the ballot *rolls eyes* Jeesh, it's my first time voting! And those stupid little circles you have to fill in are soooooooo annoying....especially for me, because I'm a perfectionist, so I have make sure I don't go outside the bubble and that I color in every spot. Oh well. Gotta do school.

12:31 PM

Here I go! I'm walking out the door to put in my vote for McCain!

IT'S HERE!!!!!!

Election Day 2008 is here!!!! I can't wait to get to those polls and put my vote in for McCain! My family today is fasting on bread and water, and every hour (starting at 9 AM) we will be saying the Novena in this post, the emergency novena, which is the Memorary said every hour, the Chaplet, and also say the Patriotic Rosary. God bless America!

This November,

Stand up for what you believe in.

One Day Left...

...till the US is changed forever......Alright, I am assuming that Obama will win the elections, who doesn't?! I pray and hope that he will not get into office, because if he does the US will never be the same; schools, family life, life itself, a personal rights, freedom of speech, and government. This man scares me and many others; all I see when I think of him in the White House is a Communistic government. I am afraid for homeschoolers like myself, that he would make homeschooling illegal. I envision that he will pass laws that will take the rights of parents away to raise their children as they see fit. I envision lives of millions of unborn children never having a chance to be born, and so many other things. Fellow citizens of the United States of America, this is what I see if Barack Hussein Obama is elected tomorrow, November 4, 2008; that the Land of the Free will be just another land of communism and fear. I implore you to give your vote to John McCain and Sarah Palin, so that the USA can go on being the Land of the Free!

Powerful Novena for Elections 2008

I borrowed this from Lady Rose:
This is a novena to the Infant of Prague, a novena for an urgent need. Our country is in a very urgent need. It is permissible that: In cases of great urgency, a novena of hours may be made instead of days. The prayers should, if possible, be repeated at the same time every hour for nine consecutive hours.
I strongly encourage each and every one of you and your families, to pray this novena on election day, November 4th. Every single prayer counts and is needed!
PLEASE pass this novena along and urge everyone you know to pray it on November 4th as well! Our prayers DO count, and we must storm heaven with them!

Suggested intention: That this election day, our country may elect a holy, wise, pro-life, pro-family president and other political leaders.

Powerful Novena in Urgent Need to the Infant of Prague
O Jesus, who said, "Ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find, knock and it shall be opened to you," through the intercession of Mary, Your most holy Mother, I knock, I seek, I ask that my prayer be granted.
(Mention your request)

O Jesus, who said "All that you ask of the Father in My Name He will grant you," through the intercession of Mary, Your most holy Mother, I humbly and urgently ask Your Father in Your Name that my prayer be granted.
(Mention your request)

O Jesus, who said "Heaven and earth shall pass away, but My word shall not pass," through the intercession of Mary, Your most Holy Mother, I feel confident that my prayer will be granted.
(Mention your request)
Amen.
