I have an ENORMOUS amount to blog about AND in due time I will be sure to share...

BUT for now, let us just have a good laugh at this picture:

Look at that genuinely happy grin I have on my face! This was taken at the frame home in Palmyra. I was giving a tour. Can you believe I was that happy? Even though I had a few extra pounds, bad hair, a very shiny forehead and that dress!!! That was one I would wear when I wanted to look cute! If you could pan down, you would see orthopedic shoes to complete the look.

I really was that happy. Happiest time and happiest version of me I can remember.

Guess what? I am even more happy now. :)

source of happiness

Today this 38 second wonder is the only thing that has made me laugh. I made my study group watch this right before we went to take an exam.


Oddly, a room of nursing students finds someone inflicting pain on themselves very humorous...

And even though I have seen this thing for months it doesn't get old.

I am a sick person.

Remember how my words tend to never cease? (see post below)

Apparently even when I am sleeping I want to be heard.

My roommate claims that I was humming in my sleep. I woke her up with my humming. Not sure the tune, but humming I did.

Not quite sure if I believe it...

OK, maybe I do believe it.

Do breathe right strips help with that?

In upstate NY there lives a family*. A very nice, sweet, and wonderful family. The kind of family that probably doesn't own a TV, only eats organic foods, and instead of putting them in timeout for wrong doings, they take away their speaking privileges. No lie. I remember being there for a dinner appointment and asking one of the children a question, to which they did not respond. Mother explained the child's speaking privileges were revoked AND had been since morning and would be for the rest of the day. I had never heard of this. Me not being a mother and not being familiar to all discipline methods(I was a perfect child and teenager), I thought perhaps this to be normal.... Haven't heard of this punishment since.

Hadn't thought of it much really either. Until this last Sunday. We were in Sunday school and we read a scripture about God's words never ceasing. My friend leaned over and said, "neither do Anna's." haha I giggled. I giggled because I know it is not far from the truth. Well, I like to talk. Later I teased I wouldn't speak for the rest of the night. 30 seconds later I said something.

I think I would have exploded if I were punished in the same way the children in the NY family were. Gone crazy. Rammed myself into walls, chewed my nails, and probably would have developed some kind of tick...

I would much rather get a swat on the hiney.

But that is just me.

*This family really was lovely. Children were healthy and loved and probably more normal than I can expect any of my own offspring to be.
