First day of school

This song was on my itunes... I think it's from Luigi. Great song though :)

By Josh Groban
Like the sound of silence calling
I hear your voice and suddenly I’m falling
Lost in a dream
Like the echoes of our souls are meeting
You say those words, my heart stops beating
I wonder what it means
What could it be that comes over me
At times I can’t move
At times I can hardly breathe

When you say you love me
The world goes still, so still inside and
When you say you love me
For a moment, there’s no one else alive

You’re the one I’ve always thought of
I don’t know how, but I feel sheltered in your love
You’re where I belong
And when you’re with me, if I close my eyes
There are times I swear I feel like I can fly
For a moment in time
Somewhere between the heavens and earth
Frozen in time
Oh, when you say those words

When you say you love me
The world goes still, so still inside and
When you say you love me
For a moment, there’s no one else alive

And this journey that we’re on
How far we’ve come and I
Celebrate every moment
And when you say you love me
That’s all you have to say
I’ll always feel this way

When you say you love me
The world goes still, so still inside and
When you say you love me
In that moment, I know why I’m alive
When you say you love me
When you say you love me
Do you know how I love you?

First day of school

Cheez-its are amazing...

            First we start with great quotes of the day:


(In reference to a survey the kids had to fill out)

chU c K ie2 2: well- its official

chU c K ie2 2: you're my hall's favorite RA to do actives with
chU c K ie2 2: and scrapple is the worst dinning hall food
chU c K ie2 2: and apparently when we're off, we do whatever we want
chU c K ie2 2: one kid didn’t want me to find mold in his room :P
chU c K ie2 2: another kid didn’t write down a favorite pop star but instead wrote "they suck"

SammiRo: my favorite answer from the survey will always be that in our free time, RAs jump.

chU c K ie2 2: lol- i always jump


(In reference to Jill’s new boy)

DalerGal: It's like I'm Merriam and he's Webster and now all that's left is to add the hyphen

(In reference to our snacks)

SammiRo: and now i have cheez-its

chU c K ie2 2: rainbow goldfish ::flex::

SammiRo: and white chedder cheez-its are so much cooler than rainbow goldfish

chU c K ie2 2: white chedder cheez-its are better tasting

chU c K ie2 2: rainbow goldfish LOOK cooler

SammiRo: true

chU c K ie2 2: cool is all about whats on the outside... not on the inside

chU c K ie2 2: i've got yellow... orange... red... green

chU c K ie2 2: oh look! purple!

SammiRo: you're so odd

chU c K ie2 2: no blue :-(

SammiRo: no blue?!

SammiRo: where has all the blue gone?!

chU c K ie2 2: maybe they're holding out like M&Ms


            Ahh, it was an interesting day. It started at 4am when Julia had an asthma attack. I sat her down and had her use her rescue inhaler while I paged Holly and called Beth. Holly came over with her nebulizer and we sat with her for about 30 minutes while she used it. Afterwards she couldn’t sleep (it was about 5:30 at this point) so we hung out in my room and talked. At 6:30 other people started getting up, so we all showered and got dressed. We went to breakfast and then I dropped Julia off to sleep in the nurse’s office for a bit and dropped off the rest of my girls for classes. We had our RA meeting after that and I got the “Rockstar RA” award! (It’s a jar with stickers all over it filled with candy – yum!) I got some stuff done in the office, and then just totally collapsed! (I was running on three hours of sleep). So, from 11am until 3pm, I slept, it was wonderful.


            When I woke up I headed over to the office to get mail and then picked up not only my girls, but Kim’s girls too (it’s her day off) The most amazing part was that I found out that all evening activities were cancelled because of an incoming storm, so the kids watched a movie. So, we had our hall meeting and hall time, and then headed off to dinner. Well, because my girls won Casino night, I was tied together with Garret for dinner (they picked him). It was interesting. I ate with my left hand, which is a lot harder than it looks. He’s a funny guy though, so it’s all good.


            After dinner we put the kids in the theatre and then I called my new roommates! YaY! I have Crystal Ballard and Shereese Matthews from Maryland. They’re friends and they’re living together. I talked to Crystal for a bit (Shereese wasn’t home) and she sounded very sweet. I also caught up with the famous Mr. Simon Duncanson, who is lovely.


            Anyway, then the kids came back, they showered and got into bed. It’s all quiet now and let us hope that it stays this way. Daddy brought me white cheddar cheez-its too, so I’m doing well.


(Garret and I handcuffed together -- such fun!)
