I had something to talk about and now I can't remember what it was. I'M TO YOUNG TO BE HAVING SENIOR MOMENTS!
well, I am recovered from the walk saterday and am very happy regarding that fact. now I have three sets of tan. it might surprise you to learn that I still have a tan line from my swimsuit last summer! on top of that, now I have even darker skin from this year's walk. my legs look I'm wearing upper thigh stockings that stop at my ankles. I guess that would be very long leg warmers not stockings. it looks weird. I remind myself of a paint horse with all my different skin colors. and now I'm thinking that I tan easy, burn if left in sun all day without shade, and keep tan as well as I get it. lucky me.
I'm reading this book and it's 676 pages long and it's really two books in one binding. like I finished the first part of the book last night and started the "part two" and what do you know, it's four years later and the teen age characters are now adults. now I call that cheating! you skip a lot and it doesn't even seem right considering in part one they were getting ready for a war that was going to break out SOON but it took four years for it to actually happen and then you've got these other characters that are trapped or kidnapped. they've been in captivity for FOUR years! anyway, if you want to know what book I'm talking about it's called the bones of makados by bryan davis and it's the 8th book in the series (but I really think it should have been 8th and 9th book) raising dragons/oracles of fire and I suggest you never read these for your own sanity. they are good at keeping your attention, but the rest of it is just kind of bad in my opinion. I own all 8 and I don't plan on reading them a second time.

Stephanie had a goal to walk 20 miles. she was on her 12th when I noticed her starting to fade. the girl just got paler and paler as she kept going. her posture was slumping and she looked dead on her feet. we were both walking at the same time, but she was ahead of me because she walked faster and has longer legs. Mrs. Gina started noticing it too and called Stephanie's mother. I'm not really sure what went on with that whole thing. it's 90 something degrees outside in the hot hot sun! we kept trying to get Steph to stop, but she didn't want to. her dad called her and shortly after than Steph realized that she was getting dizzy, but she wanted to keep going.
We more or less had to drag her off the track and take her back to Lizzie's place. after she'd been laying down for about ten minutes, her heart rate was still 120! Steph suffered from heat exhaustion more than anything else. I'm not sure how much longer she would have lasted before passing out. Steph reached a total of 14 and a quarter miles before we took her out. GO STEPHANIE! she walked further than any of us! now that is determination.

I was on my feet for most of the evening and when we got to sit down and eat, I couldn't eat very much because of my nerves. Mom always says that I always look calm, cool and collected and I bet that none of my friends that I was serving with could see all the stress I was feeling. because I do look cool calm and collected when I'm freaking out. I'm not sure why. but it makes life even worse for me sometimes, being able to hide those emotions so well!
The night before last I didn't get a lot of sleep. I'm not sure why. Last night I didn't get a lot of sleep. I was serving at the dinner all night long in my dreams and I was half awake for most of the night. Rachel kept coughing, so that kept me up too!
I also had two demonic visitors. Let me tell you, it is not pleasant to be sleeping and then have someone invisible pin you to your pillow and cover your mouth so you can't tell it to get the heck out of here! I've dealt with them before so it wasn't really a big problem, I just can't understand why all of a sudden they are interested in ME! Dad said it's because we're getting close to something and it's part of my spiritual training so I know how to deal with demons when I'm testifying to people. I think they don't like that I'm going to be doing that walk-a-thon for make-a-wish on Saturday. that sounds a bit crazy, but satan HATES it when we do stuff that's good and right. so it stands to reason. If you think I'm making this up, I'm not. the spirit world is real and the dark side is NOT fun, no matter what Satan tells you.
I think Satan is trying to scare me into hiding from God, but I know that God has given me the power to get rid of the unwelcome visitors that sometimes show up and I've witnessed some miraculus things. If I've learned anything from my unwelcome visitors it's that if demons are real, than the spirit world is real and if the spirit world is real then angels are real and if angels are real that means God is real and if God is real, then I'm in good hands and God is NEVER going to leave me to face my problems on my own.

My Brother Nathan has a habit of going to the bathroom in the middle of the night and then not turning off the light when he leaves. he does it all the time and I get really sick and tired of turning the light off. two nights ago, while he was coming out of the bathroom I yelled at him to turn the light off.
"OK." he said and continued to go back into his room and not do anything about the light. So I had to pull myself out of my nice warm bed and turn the light off myself. ugh! the next morning, I told him about it and he said he didn't remember going to the bathroom at all that night. Why must I have a brother that sleep walks? it's bad enough that the sister I share a room with talks in her sleep. I'm a light sleeper and these doing-things-in-your-sleep things make me very grumpy indeed.

some of the books on my shelf I've already read before, but haven't read in years. like the two by E. Nesbit. I really wanted to re-read those books, but the library around here doesn't carry them. =( what's worse is that i couldn't even remember what they were called. I just remembered that one of the books had a title that had something to do with a castle. but I couldn't for the life of me remember what. it turned out that the book was called the enchanted castle. now how in the world did I manage to forget that!?!?! oh well.
hopefully I can get an inter library loan or something for some of these books that I know I'm not going to find anywhere around here. or i can just ask mom to get them on ebey.

I'm working on my Poetry. Mom says this one makes her sad...which is the point I guess. I feel proud of it and it took me most the afternoon to get it right. Enjoy!
The Sound of Honey
By Me (Kye)
The music played soft and low
Drifting through the halls
Weaving a magic spell in the air
“Come dance!” it pleaded with imploring tones
“Move across the dance floor, hold your lover close.”
The music spun, it whirled, it waited
It played the sweetest tune you’ve ever heard
It sounded like honey
It felt like a rose
The music sang long and engaging
Wandering round the house
Touching the rims of heaven
“Come sing!” it whispered
“Add to the music, lend your voice to the song.”
It smelled like rain
It glowed like laughter
The music begged, it cried and it pleaded
It sang a brand new melody
But no one danced
No one sang
No one heard the honey or felt the touch of the rose
No one smelled the rain
The music played alone
For there was no one to hear it

So I was abducted by aliens, got towed clear across the universe, had to convince the aliens that flies were an endangered species so they wouldn't blow up earth, got towed back to earth and ended up back at the library just a few seconds before my parents came to pick me and my sister up from this writer's workshop. fun, no?
