That's right, I went roller skating last night with the young women. I really can't skate. No. I'm not saying that I'm not good at it, I'm saying I really don't. know. how! Even as a kid, I was a wall-hugger. You know the type? They skate super slow and hold on to the wall for dear life! Well that was and still is me!
Hopefully no one had a camera with them last night! If they did, I will surely be on funniest home videos! All night long I was doing this: shuffle- shuff- shuff- shuff. Then yelling "Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Aaaah!" Then I'd do the wall- cling again. It was fun though. And I got lots of exercise. You can imagine how my heart rate was going up and up when my arms were constantly doing the wind-mill / Saturday night fever moves. But sort-of not-on-purpose. I had to keep them moving to keep myself from face-planting!
That picture is sort of how I looked when I got the tush-bruise....only I was wearing gross public skates and my socks were way cuter!
And, I'm having a hard time coming up with a roller skating song. All I can think of is Nene's post about Ladies lovin' the feel of the wheel from that Flight of the Concords song. I'm not sure I can post that one, little ears- you know! Hmm. I'll see what I can come up with...How about a little Night Fever by the Bee Gees. Yeah. That sounds groovy!

One of my little friends brought me some candy for valentine's day. I have seen this candy in the store before and wondered who buys this kind of stuff? Well, apparently Kyla's family does because they gave some to me. But, I thought, well, what do I have to loose. I haven't met many treats I don't like. So, I opened the cute little heart box, unwrapped the little gold foil wrapper and took a look at the candy. I thought, hmm, it's covered with nuts and it has chocolate. I love the two together... and I cautiously took a bite. At first I was surprised at how light it was, then I was in heaven at the taste. MMM! Without a doubt, one of the best candies I have ever had. Ever.
I feel like a little thankful countdown is in order today. In addition to the valentine candy, I was also served a huge slice of humble pie today.
#5 We have a nice home that we can afford
#4 We have enough money to buy food, clothing, and some extras too
#3 We are healthy
#2 We have jobs
#1 We have jobs
Song: I want candy
Facebook has become like an illness for me lately! Sometimes, while I'm wondering around the house doing various tasks, I say to myself: Brandi is cleaning the toilet, or Brandi is making her bed. YUCK! I feel like Jeff from that Seinfeld episode. Remember, he is the one who always talks about himself in the 3rd person and Elaine thinks that some guy named Jeff wants to take her out, but it's really the nerd she keeps talking to!
I'm really trying to decide how much I want to embrace getting in touch with people I went to school with. I'm really curious what other people are doing, but I have some skeletons in my closet and I'm not sure I want to let them out EVER. So mostly the people I'm trying to get in touch with are the people that were more like good acquaintances. I figure that the people who I considered to be my "best friends" would probably still be somewhat around me if they were really my friends to begin with. You see, I lost contact with almost everyone right after I graduated because I went to Las Vegas for the summer to be a stripper. (jk- I went to stay with my dad) And after that I moved out of my house to go to college. Then, to throw a bigger kink in my high school friendships, I had a baby.
So, I don't know.
But, to clarify...I'm not giving up blogging. I love it! It's much more personal that facebook. I love reading other people's stories. I like sharing mine. And, if nothing else, it makes me feel like I'm at the very least preserving some personal history! :) I guess I'll do both. 'Cause I feel like they are completely different!

Anyway, Jason and I gave her the idea of selling her Leapster and games on ebay so that she could put the money she got toward the purchase of the DS. Her games and Leapster sold for $94. She was so excited! A few days before that she also got a $50 American Express gift card in the mail, so she was set! Now, she finally had enough money to buy her thing.
SO, Friday, we took her to our friendly neighborhood Costco, where she picked out a cute pink DS with a case, charger, the works. She also got to buy a Mario Game. Go Super!!! Way to go for saving your money!
I'll post a picture soon (she's at school right now, but guaranteed the moment she gets home it will be in her hands for the rest of the night)
