THE 80's

I can't tell you how many times I have talked "the eighties" with people and they all talk about poplular t.v. shows. Everyone mentions the typical care bears, rainbow brite, teeshirt tales, etc. But suddenly when I mention one of my favorites will BILL COSBY and his pen MORTIMER I get a blank stare.




I have YET to meet someone who remembers them. So thanks to the wonders of the internet, I have brought them back for you to enjoy. I KNOW there were people out there have this lost in the back of their mind and now is the time to relive your past.
BEHOLD PICTURE PAGES!! Starring BIll COSBY and his pen MORTIMER!!!

Project Apron

I saw the cutest OVERPRICed aprons at the mall and wanted one. SO of course I did the RONNIE thing to do and made my own. I even made a little party out of it and invited Apes and Shayla to join me and we picked out our own materials and designs ...only to have 3 for 3 sewing machines fail on us. But the good news is I didn't give up and I sewed mine up late Sunday night and it turned out really cute. I of course picked a countryfied theme for mine.


DEC THE HOUSE!!

SO I spent MONDAY putting up Christmas decorations.....and it was the best day ever!! I just love walking into the house and having the Christmas overdose!!! HEre are some pics

I ADMIT IT....

I NEVER REALIZED JUST HOW WIERD THIS HABIT OF MINE WAS UNTIL i WENT TO TELL SOMEONE ABOUT IT.

SOMETIMES, WHEN i JUST CAN'T RESIST EATING A PIECE OF SCRUMPTUOUS FATTY CHOCOLATE, CAKE, COOKIE OR CHEESECAKE OR WHATNOT.....i HAVE BEEN KNOWN TO TAKE A BITE.....SAVOR IT IN MY MOUTH AND CHEW A COUPLE TIMES......THEN SPIT IT OUT!!!!




CUZ SOMETIMES I JUST CAN'T RESIST!! AND IT ISN'T UNTIL IT IS IN MY MOUTH THAT I TASTE ITS EXTRA SWEETNESS AND AS I CHEW ON IT, I COME TO REALIZE THE FULL CONSEQUENCES OF MY ACTIONS. AS I CHEW I TASTE THE CHOCOLATELY RICHNESS AND I START TO CONTEMPLATE JUST HOW THIS TASTE CAME TO BE AND ALL I CAN SEE IT BUTTER,SUGAR,CREAM, AND HIGH FRUCTOSE CORNSYRUP....THEN I START TO THINK ABOUT HOW ALL THAT SUBSTANCE LOOKS ON MY BUTT AND THIGHS... THEN I START TO THINK ABOUT HOW WEAK I AM AND HOW DISAPPOINTED I AM IN MY INABILITY TO RESIST.....AND THEN I SPIT IT OUT. I FIGURE IF I DON'T SWALLOW, I DON'T DIGEST AND SO I DON'T ABSORB THE CALORIES.

KINDOF A DUMB MINDSET BUT I CAN'T TELL YOU HOW MANY TIMES I HAVE DONE IT.

KIND OF A SELECT MASTICATEDBULEMIA OF SOME SORT I GUESS YOU COULD SAY.

MY Wierd Quirks

I have recently come to glipmse with some of my wierd quirks. Thing that I do without thinking and that other people might not know about. Here are a few.

WHEN I AM IN A PUBLIC RESTROOM I NEVER USE THE FIRST TWO SQUARES OF TOLIET PAPER. I TEAR THEM OFF and THROW THEM AWAY.


My reasoning is because if you have ever noticed, when you go to tear a piece of toliet paper off the roll you have to use your other hands to hold the other end of the paper. (cuz we all know the serate t.p. tearer doesn't work). So I don't want someone elses hand germs on my toilet paper or let alone riding my crotch. So I always throw the first two away when I am in public.

IF I SEE SOMETHING THAT COULD BE RECYCLED IN THE GARBAGE
I WILL DIG IT OUT AND PUT IT IN THE RECYCLE BIN.


I know it is slightly crazed but whenever I see plastic in the recyle bin all I can think about is how many hundreds of thousands of years it would take for that plastic bottle to decompose in a landfill. It makes me sick to think about it.

IF I AM AT A PARTY AND THEY SERVE DRINKS WITH PLASTIC "DISPOSABLE" CUPS I WILL SAVE THE CUP AND TAKE IT HOME WITH ME AND AND WASH IT OR RESUSE IT FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS.

Again it is the whole recycle thing. I can't just throw plastic away without recycling it. Sometimes I will take it home and use it a couple more times so it doesn't go to complete waste right away.

WHEN I AM THINKING ABOUT A CONVERSATION WITH SOMEONE IN MY HEAD I WILL OFTEN THINK OF WHAT THEY MIGHT SAY BACK TO ME OR WHAT I WILL SAY TO THEM AND I WILL FIND MYSELF GIVING FULL FACIAL EXPRESSIONS AS IF THEY WERE ACTUALLY THERE TALKING TO ME. OR I WILL FIND MYSELF LAUGHING ALOUD TO AN IMAGINARY CONVERSATION I JUST HAD IN MY HEAD.

I don't feel the need to explain myself on this one. I know I need therapy.


I HAVE BEEN TOLD BY MY FRIENDS THAT WHEN THEY ARE TELLING ME A STORY AND I AM REALLY INTO IT, I WILL MOVE MY LIPS THE WHOLE TIME THEY ARE TALKING. LIKE I AM THE ONE TELLING THE STORY OR SOMETHING. I DON'T REALY KNOW TOO MUCH ABOUT THIS ONE CUZ I HAVE NEVER SEEN IT.

I am not sure what my explanation for this one is. I just get really into the story and want to tell it myself I guess.

THE STAIRCASE THAT TOOK THE LAST MONTH OF MY LIFE!!!

Here is ME and the staircase that took the last month of my life. After being laid up for a week post surgery I was a little excited to me on my feet again. So excited that I couldn't pass the opportunity to slide down THIS staircase one night...only to be followed by a crash and burn desent. I was bookin it so darn fast that I bailed early...about 5 steps early. And trying to land on stairs at excessive speeds has yet to be perfected by any human being...especially me.



So after landing and hearing my ankle crunch like a bag o chips under a mattress I rolled down the last few steps and accepted my fate.

HEre I am supermodelposing by the water side with my sexy fat ankle.

Needless to say this fat ankle ment me being gimp on my vacation, missing a soccor game, attending church with a huge fat dinosauritis sized ankle and weeks without being able to go for my sanity runs, and a flat tire on my new mountain bike!! Yes this ankle of fat is nothing but trouble and I am not too happy about my mobolization lacking. Luckily is is getting better but I always have to wrap it and that makes me feel old. And i hate feeling old. Coming to glimpse with your true bodies lack of youth is my least favorite thing to do.

Another repair for the ol civic

I was recently riding in my blue L.S.S. with my uncle and I told him that I would offer to turn on the heater but it didn't work. Then I proceeded to laugh and I mentioned to him that I figured if I could go my entire life of summers with no A/C then I could handle a winter without heat. He then said something quite prophetic that i had not thought about. He said, " That is not good for your windshield." OH CRAP I exclaimed, i had not even thought about that!! NO heat means NO DEFROST!!! Shoot. So I guess that means i have to get on my grubbies and fix something else. But it is good that i know this now rather then later, when I am driving in the first snow with my head handing out the window!!


So then I got on line trying to find how I was going to fix my problem when I came across a civic forum. As I was scrolling through I laughed when I came across a kid who posted that he wanted to sell the piecer that his parents had given him for his 16th birthday.
IN response this is what some guy wrote and I laughed so hard when I read it!!!( swear words have been appropriate replaced with close replicas)

"When i hate my car i just remember this is my car only mine i put the blood sweat and tears into it. OH WAIT YOU CAN'T HAVE THAT FEELING! Dont complain. I wish i got a brand new car for free when i was a 16 year old. I worked for my used lil ride saved up and got her at 15. And being a worker my wholelife i know NO WAY IN HELL can you bother saying you earned it all your self.Little whiny crapper like you make me laugh cause your daddys probably so deep in debt trying to keep up with the Jones that you going to pay for his retirement!!"

I LOVE this guy..wonder if he is single. LOL

I AM SO SICK OF.......

Can I just say that I am SO SICK OF BOYS TELLIN ME I AM INTIMIDATING!!!!

I am quite sure that if I counted up how many times I have been called INTIMIDATING it would be well over fifty.

So I thought to myself...perhaps it isn't that bad...perhaps you have a wrong perception of the definition. So I looked it up....here is what I got...

INTIMIDATING MEANS: to make timid or fearful : frighten ; especially : to compel or deter by or as if by threats



SO that didn't help one my ego one bit. So I guess when guys look at me, this is what they actually see.


All the suddenmy lifetime of nonexsistant dating makes sense.

ME AND SHAYLA CONVERSTION

Ronnie: Oh hay, I just realized that I got paid on Friday...woohoo!!

Shayla: Gee I wonder what that must be like, no not even care when I get paid and not live pay check to pay check.

Ronnie: OH, I can tell you EXACTLY what it feels like!! It feels like driving in hundred degree weather all summer long with no air conditioning!! THAT IS WHAT IT FEELS LIKE! LOL

Don't mess with a McDonald GIRL

SO we all know that the MCDONALD girls are known for their rough and toughness. And I captured some pictures of my little sister beating on her boyfriend as proof of what you are getting into when you take on a McDonald girl.

CHECK OUT THE GUNS ON BOBO!!! NICE AS THEY ARE THEY DON"T STAND A CHANCE AGAINST MINE, I CAN CRUSH HER IN AN ARM WRESTLE ANY DAY O THE WEEK.

IDAHO AND WYOMING...where I belong!!





SO me and Shayla and Dave all made a long due visit to see our dear friend KRIS in WY!! It was so perfect and serene. When we drove home and hit the Utah sign I screamed out, "NO TURN AROUND, DON't Make me go back to UTAh." I don't know why I am in UTah and not Idaho. But here are some of the most majestic and beautiful places captured via camera Shayla. Few things can make me cry, but honestly these sort of country sites make me more homesick then you could ever imagine and it makes me want to ball my eyes out.

and more pics from the place i LOVE

Here is the silo Shayla climbed...she was so proud
Here is the creek that we believe the Rockefellers had gold hidden in
Here is a beautiful barn

More ID and WY pics

Here is the bon fire we had with about 20 palllets

Here is KRIS and some of the new firends we made
Here is what eating Buffalo will do to your bowel movements
Me and Shayla

Here is a historic barn in the tetons

YOU KNOW YOUR IN IDAHO WHEN YOU SEE THIS

sO like i said, you know you are in idaho when you see this.....


My friend asked, "why would anyone do that and carry it around?"
My answer, "are you kidding...that moose is total social status here in Idaho, it is the equivalent of a mercedes benz or jaguar in utah."

THE Raftin trip from 2 months ago!!


HERE IS THE GROUP OF US..IT was SO fun..please notice that the majority of us are sopping wet.
And here is sara post falling out. The entire raft of people fell out and we all hung onto the raft or climbed in. Sara however swam for shore and we had to paddle back to shore, send Tara to retrieve her and bring her back to the raft.
HEre is a bug that was in my hair when I was sleepin
AND HERE is a very interesting way to sunbath...brought to us by sara...strange girl....I didn't invite her.
HEre is the raft that we had to put top the car when our truck keys were lost
HEre is the view from the windsheild after we put the raft on....like looking through a peep hole!
So I WOULD have had these pics up sooner, but a certain someone found a boytoy and has just recently (after much announance by myself) sent these pics from the trip. SO here are the ones that I have. NO hard feelings unnamed person I will call ERICKA for purposes of concealing identities.

Oh the things we say...and i am so clever

I have my days I admit it. Where i have given up on love and finding the "oh so special person" that you can't imagine ever loving because you already hate them for not finding you sooner. And the other day I was having such one of these days and I just came up with this clever little comment I just had to record. I was talkin to my friend ERIN.
ME: Ya well when I get married, I mean IF I get married then bla bla bla (can't remember what I said).
ERIN: What do you mean IF you get married?
ME: I mean IF Erin! I mean just what I said! History has a tendency to repeat itself and I am already 27 years into it. If it repeates itself again chances don't look so good, I will be 57!!

SURGERY FOR RONNIE

Most the time when you see girls of my age in a bed like this it is because they just had a baby. Well, not the case here I am far from that, I haven't even made out in years (not so interesting nor surprising sidenote).
But what is the case is that i finally had sinus surgery! A much needed fix to my every other month misery of suffering from sinus infections. They basically go in my nose via port of my nostrils and burrow our my sinuses and then take out my crooked septum and crush it down to make it straight and put it back in. I highly recommend youtube for a full length video so that you feel really sorry for me and send chocolate. Anyways, here is what I did this week.

Recovery could have been worse but it is miserable for sure. My face felt like a train wreck. Dry blood and metal plates crammed up in my nose. I haven't been able to breath through it. My face got all swollen along with my nose. And I am pretty sure you could turn a semi truck around on top of my nose today. Needless to say no public appearances for now, and if you do see me you can bet I will run away ...or just pull my shirt over my head.

Beware of the ice blocking train

So here is one of the latest from a little ice blocking dilly that I went to. As soon as I got there I joined the group on the tallest hill and the longest train and I was on the back end of the train. What happened is that the front of the train hit a dead stop and the back of the train fish tailed to the front and then just barrel rolled from there, people, ice blocks and all. My shoulder (see below) somehow too most of the impact. I thought it was kinda lame cuz I got right up and the girl who ROLLED OVER ME laid on the ground and milked it like she was in pain. I would like to see what she has to offer in terms of battle wounds. Girls are such wussies.

SO now I have a scar on each shoulder....one from ice blocking and one from alpine sleds. My need for speed seems to be takin a toll on my subcutaneous.

O the lost journal entries and what they reveal

So I had to laugh and say a prayer of thanks that I didn't get married young because as I was reading an old journal, I came across this little entry entitled something to the sort of " WHAT I NEED IN A BOYFRIEND." So here it is, my list when I was 16 of what I was looking for and thank goodness I didn't find it.
1. SKater type boy
2. In a PUnk band
3. Tattoo on deltoid
4. Earing on eyebrow or lip
5. Going to college
6. Six pack abs
In short...this is what I was looking for

FUNNY AFRICA QUOTE

Was going through my AFRICA journal and came across this conversation with my friend
NICOLE: I have to be careful with these books becauase they aren't mine
ME: We may need those books if we run out of toilet paper. You must be willing to donate them if needed
NICOLE: No worries, that is what I brought this Ensign for

THE DAMSEL IN DISTRESS

My old mission comp and I have a term that we called, " THE DAMSEL IN DISTRESS." It covers the majority of women and quite frankily it just sizzles me over.
The DAMSEL IN DISTRESS is the girl who finds herself in a tough situation and rather then using her perfectly competant BRAIN she jumps right out of a great learning situation and cries out for help. Some boy comes to the rescue and somehow this makes her feel all is well.
I simply can not understand this thinking. How can all be well? What is the damsel going to do when she falls into that situation again? What could she possibly gain from being helpless and letting someone else come to the rescue? What good does sitting around waiting for help do? What does she possibly gain from this? IN my eyes, NOTHING.

RATHER, what the damsel should do is use the very useful thing screwed atop her neck called a brain. She should challenge herself and find a way to resolve her problem. She should learn from the experience and then be able to help someone else down the road who is in the similar situation. And who knows..maybe that someone else will be her!! Sure, not everyone knows everything but there is no reason that she can't look it up or educate herself on the matter or even make a phone call for advise. But she should NEVER just sit around in the castle like an idiot waiting day in and day out for some hero to come rescue her. Why cheat yourself of a great learning opportunity and a glimpse of the vast things you are capable of?
THEN THERE is the MEN and this is the SOLE reason that the DAMSEL exsists...to get the MAN. Men have to feel all testosteroned and hero-like, otherwise they feel useless. They have to feel like they are rescueing someone and that the world would collapse without them. And when they do find this, they drop like apricots come fall. They find an opportunity to help the damsel and they are google eyed and crazy because his testosterone needs have been filled and he thinks he has conquered a dragon by helping the girl.
SO HERE LIES OUR PROBLEM. Women know that the best way to get a guy is to act dumb and perplexed and to fill the mans testosterone need to be conquerer. So women create small dragons they need "rescuing" from and the men come runnning. This is by far the best way to call, find and keep a man.
Unfortunate for my parents, who are so deeply worried about my singlehood, I refuse to be the damsel in distress. I REFUSE to sit around in some castly crying for help waiting for some testosterone driven man with no brain to come to my rescue. Instead, I will sit in my castle, plan out my own attack, slay my own stinking dragon and liberate myself. I don't need to sit around waiting for someone else to come do it for me, what a waste of life and a perfectly good brain. And can I just say that the feeling of slaying your own dragons and being perfectly competant on your own is priceless.

Most valued things I simply can't live without.

Todays post is brought to you as the things that I just can't live without. These are all things that I use daily or would break into tears if I lost them. All items are in random order so as not to offend the other possesions.
1. MY VITAMIX BLENDER:
I have wanted one of these babies for about 5 years and after 4 years of wanting I purchased one for the first time last year. From my first tast of my cantelope smoothie I was hooked. I still remember the first day I was able to purchase one as a present of graduation to myself. I treasured it like a long awaited adopted child and I was a baren wife.
2.
MY SONICARE TOOTHBRUSH
You have never experience a clean mouth until you have brushed with the sonicare toothbrush. When I worked in a dental office, mothers raved about how much it saved them in expensive cavity filling bills. Their kids cavities would be reduced by half or more. It is an experience that I just can't get enough of and I am known to brush my teeth 4 -6 times a day just to revisit that clean feeling over and over again. Despite no running water and toliets that didn't flush and beds with holes in the middle, when I was in Africa the first thing that I said I missed the most was my sonicare toothbrush . (sorry family, you came long after the sonicare).
3. MY TOOL KIT
I love my tool kit. I can honestly say that I have better tools then my Dad and he is quite jealous of the tool kit HE gave me. I always ask for tools for Christmas and he really spoiled me one year with a tool kit that can make a girl like me shed tears of joy.
4. DOVE DARK CHOCOLATE

This is one thing that I have a constant and running supply of in my cupboard. I eat 3-6 pieces daily and it just hits the spot like no other. Without them...I am not whole.
5. GRANOLA BARS
This is the other thing I keep a constant supply of. I eat at least 2 of these daily and I have been known to eat up to ten a day. I just can't ever get enough of the textury goodness of granola. By far, a favorite food.
6. ICE COLD WATER

Call me crazy, but this is by far my favorite drink of all time. I can never drink enough and my bladder suffers terribly for it.
7.MY CDS
I loath cheesy chick flicks, but if you play a good love song, I melt like butter in an oven. I love music and if music jumped off a cliff you can bet I would follow it. Need I say more?
