Sarah: Things I Meant to Say and Never Got Around To.

I'm way behind. Let me just dive in:

  • A few weeks ago I voted for the first time. I still have the sticker to prove it. In what people claimed to be the most important election of our time, I'm proud to say I threw my vote away in overwhelmingly Republican Utah.
  • I discovered a poncho problem noone ever warned me about. Besides the how-do-I-wear-my-purse dilemma, if you are walking against a light wind wearing a long poncho, you will get poncho crotch. Perhaps this is too graphic for our site, but I feel our readers must be warned. The fringy drapeyness of your poncho, which looks so cute when you are standing in your poncho and tight jeans, will gather between your legs and look like a DIAPER. Very bad.
  • There was a crazy snow storm last night. I drove from my parent's house to school, and it was terrifying. At one point, about halfway through the journey, my car lost control and I fishtailed for a minute. Due to my expert driving, I quickly regained control of my vehicle. About a half mile later, the car directly in front of me fishtailed, but then spun out of control, across four lanes of traffic, and slammed into the concrete wall on the side of the highway. Pretty scary.
  • After this semester, I'm moving back home with Mom and Dad. For several reasons, this has become the best option for the next several months. I'm completely overwhelmed with the prospect of moving all of my stuff again, and I fear that I'll be unable to sell my contract for my apartment. Wish me luck.
  • Our family is going to pick out a Christmas tree next Friday. I'm very excited.

    Thanks for the warning.. does your poncho shed like no other? I was wearing my poncho at a family gathering the other day and everywhere i went a black trail of fluff followed... it was very upsetting. Also, I'm glad your alive!!

    I'm glad you're an expert driver! That snow was scary business driving yesterday. Moving won't be so bad, I'm sure you're a pro and you've got such cheerful, helpful siblings for that sort of thing.
    (P.S. Call me a sook, but I feel dissed for questionable content!)

    Jen, don't feel dissed. I too have been charged with questionable content. I'm having Lisa, webmaster extraordinaire, look into it.

    So, do we still have a problem with peoples' comments being erroneously rejected? Anyway, another vote for being glad you're alive. Also, let me know if you need help and/or driving company for moving. Love you!

    My sister changed my dashes to pretty bullets. I love my sister.
