When I got off, I went to my husband's IBC class. He's part of Necktopia. That's the 100% pure silk tie company. I would recommend buying one or a few. There are some pretty nice looking ties. Anyway, after his class, I had to run over to the Benson and take my test. Part of the test consisted of naming some muscles from a cadaver. The smell wasn't that bad, but at the end, I started to get a little light headed. As I was leaving, I was thinking about my grandfather. I guess some memories just never fade. I was thinking of him yesterday as well as I was eating some chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream. I don't know what came over me but I just started bawling. He passed away on July 15 of this year. I guess it sucks because I last saw him alive in April and he was doing so well. I had talked to him on the phone not even a week before he died. I remember him telling me that he was so excited to see me in just a couple more weeks. I was looking forward to seeing him too. Then BAM! One night I get a call from my parents telling me that he had suffered a heart attack while doing dialysis. I couldn't believe it. The next night I got a call saying that his condition was getting worse and that they would be pulling the plug. I just couldn't help but bawl. He was my closest grandfather, and the only one I really ever knew. And I was his little penelope. My grandmother was next to him and when she asked him questions, he would grip her hand. I could just feel for her and what pain she must be going through knowing that her husband of over 50 years was going to be in heaven soon. His death has caused a lot of animosity within the family. My aunt is primarily the one to blame and I sure have let her know. So much has been bottled up inside me and I think this blog is where I will be doing a lot of my venting. Sorry for those of you that will be reading it a lot.

I thought since it has been rainy, blue would be the best color for today's entry. As I was driving and listening to the radio, a few songs came on that I hadn't heard in such a long time. It's just weird how one little song, or even just a few lyrics can bring you back to a different time. I heard a song from Fuel, and boy oh boy, my mind was gone. I was brought back to my freshman year in high school, when I had my first boyfriend. They weren't the best of times, but I did survive. I am such a big fan of the music that was played in the 1990's. I just loved it. I remember sitting at my grandparents' house back home, during the summer and just watching MTV all day. I remember watching TRL and thinking how lucky Carson Daly was to be meeting all my favorite artists; Backstreet Boys, Christina Aguleria, Jessica Simpson, 98 Degrees, etc, etc. And now, this Sunday, the last episode of TRL will air. It's crazy. Some guy on the radio was talking about that today, and how MTV is called Music Television for a reason, but they are doing away with more and more of the music, and bringing all the crazy reality shows about drunkards and sex addicts. I guess there's always VH1.
Well, I'm here babysitting once again at the Nates' home. I was a nanny once, but the mom was a total self absorbed person, who only cared about herself and what she could do to make herself look better and better each and every day. It was definitely the nanny type mom like in the book, The Nanny Diaries. Here, I actually have control over the kids and they listen. I couldn't believe it the first time I babysat. I just think about how the Nates discipline their children. I just don't know what to do at times. Sending kikds to their room is always good, but I remember when I got sent to my room and I would just play with all the toys I had. I guess that's better than beating up on siblings.
One last comment. Tonight I was talking with a friend, and we were discussing fake people. Some of you know what I'm talking about. It's those types of people that act all nice just to get something, then become a total witch when you turn your back. I just don't get it. All I have to comment on, is that "they (fake people) drool, and all nice people (names deleted) rule." **As for the last quotation comment, you know who you are**

Well, today was eventful... not really. It really sucks being off track and only working like 3 days a week. What is a girl supposed to do with herself? I suppose I could go to the mall that we have here. Oh that's right, I live in Rexburg, where we have practically nothing except a bunch of LDS members and a bunch of high school wannabes. I wouldn't haveminded going outside for a bit, except for the fact that it rained all day, like it has been doing for the past week. I know for sure that that's what I miss the most back home in Arizona. It never really rained there, and it was nice and toasty pretty much all year long. When it did rain, it did one of two things. Either, we would get a five minute sprinkle with the sun poking out every few seconds, or we would get a nice thick dust storm, followed by a sprinkle of rain, then a move in of clouds which brought along thunder, lightning, and a nice down pour of rain. I loved it! Here though, we just get cold, never ending rain. What a crock!
