Maybe I should stop...

I've been getting nothing but hate mail from readers which, at times, gets me very discouraged. It has been a hard year so far, I don't know where God is pointing me with my life. Liz and Alex have started dating, my brother has a girlfriend, Connie and Eugine are always so busy at Whit's End that I don't see them often, and Mr. Whitaker is always talking to one of the Parker kids when I need him. Trent seems pretty sure that he wants to go into missions. Rodney is graduating (yea...I know, right?!?!?) and I'm...well...Mandy. Ít's like the whole town is moving on without me. I've grown up, we all have. I'm not spending enough time with my friends anymore...and if hate mail is all I get from this blog then why do I have it? What do I do now?

The Older I Get...The More Single I Feel!

So something big happened this week! David has a girlfriend!! I couldn't believe it! I was so sure David had lost all interest in dating. My big brother is "back in the game" as he puts it. So here I sit, writing this blog, watching my dear brother David go on a date. Mandy wonders where her someone is, or if he is even out there. She wonders if she will ever have that feeling of love, that tingle of importance...

I'm going all 3rd person again! Ugh!

Well, I have actually had that feeling before. It was a long time ago. I walk into the highschool's lab and on my desk is a large, red, paper maché heart. It's getting to the point where I can't look at Trent without thinking of that day and the way I felt. I wonder where we would be toda, as friends, if it had never happened. Even when I found out Max made the heart for me, it still didn't change the way I felt about...

I was so sure this valentine mess was over! But, somehow, I feel like it will be one of those circumstances that we never forget. You of those moments that will somehow change my life...or already has changed it. I think without that heart, Trent and I wouldn't be the close, good friends we are today. Because of it, I get the feeling that we will be friends for a very long time, maybe even forever. did I get on this subject?!?!?
Um, David! Right! David is going to the bowlarama for his date and I am tempted to go spy on him, just to get back at him for all these years. ;)


Don't forget to look at the new poll question.

Writer's Block!! ugh

So, I have to write a 900-1000 word essay (about 2 1/2 - 3 pages) about the French Revolution for my history class. I normally have little to no trouble with essays this long, especially on subject I know so much about. But, all of my knowledge of the French Revolution has only been able to cover about 5 paragraphs! I feel like Connie did when she was writing her book...

Write a few words...word count...854!?!? Write a few more words...word count...857?!?

This is driving me crazy!!! Well anyhow, because next year is the last year of highschool for me, I am starting SAT prep. So far I feel pretty good about it. Let's hope I do well.


Most of you got last month's question right about me! I am allergic to onions! I'll make a new one now.

Thanks for reading...

Snow Day!

This morning I awoke to 4 inches of soft white snow on the ground outside. Campbell County schools are closed today. So I have been out walking around in the snow with Liz, Trent, and Alex. hehe! I remember when we were little. We used to build snow forts. One year we even built a fort to protect us from the Bones of Rath (that name gets on my nerves! If you are going to name a club, at least spell it right, Rodney)! I love building things out of snow!! I am going back outisde now. Liz and I are going sledding!!

If you want to see pictures of Odyssey in the snow, just go to my facebook page.

The other day I saw Kelly talking to Mr. Whit at Whit's End. She looked like she was going to try. She mentioned that when she joined the "Bones of Rath", she was hoping her life would kinda go back to normal. But she didn't want that life after all. She loves the Washingtons and Odyssey. She wants to keep building up her Christian life. Thanks to all of you who prayed for her!!
