Oh, Hi July.

Where the crap did June go???? So school got out...we went on vacation to FL...Mich came back with us...then...BAM. July. This means something I'm not ready to accept yet...that school starts again in another 6 weeks. Serious!? When I was a kid summer's felt like they lasted FOREVER (in a good way), but now I feel like I've been on summer break for two weeks and only have another 2 weeks to go. I feel a spell of depression coming on....

Anyway, Michaela came out for two weeks to visit. It was awesome. I love this girl and miss seeing her on a daily basis (and the little brother, Spencer). I can't think about it too much or I get way too sad..anyway..we got to do some fun things while she was out here. One of those things being hiking the up to the "Y" on the mountain over looking the valley.

Something HILARIOUS happened on the way up. We were almost to the top, like maybe another 30 yards. Well, there's a path that goes to the bottom of the Y, and another to the top of the Y which is a little higher. So me and Shelby (one of Mich's friends) starts going on the trail up to the top. Ryan decides to take a short cut straight up between the two paths, and who follows? Michaela. Bless her sea level heart, but I think snails were passing us the whole way up. Anyway, Ryan gets up his "shortcut" (which is a pretty darn steep side of the mountain) just fine, but then we here... "I'M STUCK!"..what? We look at Michaela who is just stranded on the side of this mountain clinging to the side of it for dear life. I start burst out laughing (because she's nearly to the top and is close to a rock she could pull herself up on), but she almost starts crying because she was so freaked out. No worries, we're don't have that much sibling rivalry anymore, Ryan went back down to help her up and all was well. But her face was priceless.

Definitely zoom in on that if at all possible.

Anyway. I feel like there's SO much to do before summer is over. I decided to refinish my kitchen table and chairs. I'm done with the chairs (after 3 days and a sprinkler incident..) and just have the table left. We've also been redoing the living room since we got new couches and James finally ordered his flat screen (he's like a kid on Christmas morning that just ran out and saw his new bike or something). I also need to finish this book I've been reading since like before Christmas (The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown..or maybe it's The Last Symbol...possibly The Forgotten Symbol....sheesh....I haven't cracked that one in a while..).

OH OH OH. I watched a CRAZY movie this week (me and Netflix have a really good relationship right now and it only costs 9 bucks a month). Remember Me, with Robert Pattinson. It was a little weird watching a movie where he wasn't trying to suck anyone's blood, but I got over it. At first I didn't really know how to react to the movie, but then I thought about it, and realized I LOVED it. If you ever want to watch something with a completely unexpected and surprise ending, there ya go.
