T to the OM

Responding to comments:
The picture wasn't doctored Mr. Taylor. Don't be a hater! =) But thanks for the excuse to post another picture of the sexy Van Wilder.

No, I'm not trying to reveal the mystery that is TOM. I just don't know what I can and can't say because you're FBI, CIA or is it KGB?

My baby brother Christopher is officially off the market. He proposed to his girlfriend Heather a few weeks ago and they are planning to get married June 3, 2006.

I'm happy for him but at the same time worried that they are making a mistake getting married so young. Yes, he's 23 years old and that isn't young for someone in Utah but in reality it's young. I can't really talk because I met Jory when I was 20 and I knew the moment we met I was going to marry him. We waited 6 years to get married only because Jory never planned on "getting married". I agreed with him that we didn't need the certificate to solidify our commitment, but somewhere deep inside me the girl came out and I realized I really wanted to have "the day" to celebrate our love with friends and family. So the night of April 20, 2003 standing on top of the rock in Moab, UT I "proposed". Had we married in our first year together, I'm sure we'd still be married but we have both changed and luckily we've changed together.

My brother has never lived on his own, never held a job from more than a year and hasn't paid his bills without help of our mother. I encouraged him to stay at home as long as he could but he forgot the 2nd part of that suggestion, save his money. Also he's been engaged before to a psycho and he couldn't see through his "love" for her. He's had 4 serious girlfriends and the last three he's been ready to marry. I'm not sure where my brother got his ideas on love and marriage because the theme in my family is to have long term relationships before getting married or not getting married at. One of my brothers was engaged for 10 years and then it ended, had they been married that would have meant a divorce. Another brother was engaged for 4 years when that relationship ended, he later met his wife and married her after a year. My other brother had a relationship for many years and last I heard he was dating a new girl (as far as I know).

It's looking like he's going to take my advice and get an apartment in January (needs to get (mostly) out of debt) and live on his own until they are married. I personally think he needs to live on his own for at least 6 months then have her move in, live together for another 6 months, then get married. This however isn't an option since they have already booked the honeymoon for June 4th.

I believe that my older brothers and I all learned from growing up in a divorced family to take our time making sure we are with the person we want to grow old with before we marry them. Maybe it's because he's the baby of the family and he is the "ours" in "Mine, His and Ours" so technically he didn't grow up with divorced parents. I'm sure it was a different world for him because he shares blood with both sides. We never looked at him as being any ones half brother and don't forget he's the youngest. I don't know what the reason is, I just hope that everything works out for him and Heather and I fully support them no matter what they do. Heather does have one thing going for her, she's the first girlfriend we've all liked.

Congratulations Christopher and Heather!

Jorlight Zone

Email Insanity


Got it, test you!

I got this email but not the others...weird. Our apartment must be in the Twilight zone.

Actually, I accidentally sent to your Gmail account.

Oh, so no Twilight zone? =(

Nope it's the Jorlight Zone...

16 Children!

Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar just welcomed their 16th child yesterday! SIXTEENTH! All I want is one and if I can be selfish two would be perfect. I watched a documentary on the Duggar family close to a year ago. They had just started building their 7,000 sq ft baby warehouse, and she gave birth to Jackson Levi their 15th child during the last 30 minutes of the show. They drive a "Mormon Limo" or to non Utahrds, a huge ass cargo vans with seating for 14. Not too worry they also have a full size shuttle BUS for the whole family to travel together.

My point: It's just not fair!

The Heat is On!

Poor little Mazzy Star is in heat! I feel like a horrible mother for not getting her spayed in time. Jory did bring up a good point though, unless there is a medical reason to get her spayed, what's the point? She's an indoor dog, she's always with us and it's only twice a year that we'll have to deal with it. Last night I read that toy breeds don't bleed much, if at all. So far Mazzy is keeping herself clean other than two tiny wet drops we found. I might still go buy her a diaper and some liners just in case, mainly because I think she'll look cute!

We're also trying out a new technique to get her to stop barking and so far Jory says it's working (he started using it today). You put 9 pennies in a soda can and shake it and tell her no when she barks. A friend from work told me about this technique she learned from Petco when she paid for puppy training. We'll let you know how it goes.

Week 16, yeah that's FOUR MONTHS!

Still coughing but it's changed. It's not so much choking, gasping for air cough. It's more of a reflex cough with the occasional vomit gag and choking up a mucusy loogie. Those of you that know me understand that I dry heave at the mere sound of anyone coughing up a loogie, pretend or real. So you must understand that I'm killing myself gagging when this happens.

I know, I know if I would just stop smoking this would probably be gone by now. I'm not stupid, just an addict.

My Angel Reading...Thanks Sara!

Sara says: Okay, I am going to draw an angel card for you....and let's see what your angels have to say to you

Joey says: Kool

Sara says: Concentrate on a question or, send energy like ...tell me what I need to know at this time, etc...and i'll concentrate at the same time.

Sara says: ready? go!

Sara says: okay, i tried to pull one but two came apparently they hve a couple of messages for you.

Joey says: kool

Sara says: my hands got pretty warm so good job if you were concentrating hard on sending energy

Sara says: the first Angel is Teresa

Sara says: "Time out! you've been so busy taking care of everyone else's needs, but now it's time to stop and take care of yourself!"

Sara says: Dear one, you've been working very hard! You're very tired now, yet you keep pushing yourself to work more, more, more! I am here to firmly and lovingly take your hand, and tell you to 'Stop!'
Cease working for a moment and take a respite. you have certainly earned it, and you will be more efficient and productive after taking this rest.
You give so much to others that at times like this you become unbalanced. your inner child yearns for nurturing and no one is going to give you that loving care but yourself and the angels.
So, give yourself permission to take a much-needed time-out. Take a nap, or go play for a while. Please don't delay this guidance. We assure you that your responsibilities will all be met, and you will gather new energy and ideas during your time-out. We will also bring you additional Earthly help, and assist you in delegating work.

Sara says: that was the first one.

Joey says: Crazy! That was no bullshit

Sara says: the second Angel is Raye

Sara says: Yoga and exercise are essential to your well-being, peace of mind, and spiritual growth right now.

Sara says: You have received strong guidance to engage in yoga and other forms of exercise, and this card serves as additional validation. Physical movement is essential to realizing your dreams, desires, and intentions. It gives you the energy and vitality that will help you begin and complete your projects. It opens you up to new, creative ideas.

Joey says: to babies!

Sara says: And yoga cleanses and enlarges your chakra centers so that you can hear our angelic guidance loud and clear. TO BABIES!

Sara says: Yoga also allows a noisy mind to become quiet so that it can meditate and hear the voice of Heaven. Although you may feel intimidated by yoga or excerise, I will help you smooth the way. If you ask me, I will help you tailor an exercise program to fit your schedule, interests, and fitness level. You will receive this guidance in the form of repetitive thoughts and feelings, and also through information about yoga or excercise that comes to you from 'out of the blue'.
I know that you're a busy person, but I promise you that the increased level of energy you'll feel after excercising will give you the equivalent of more hours in your day.

Sara says: the end

Joey says: that's true

Sara says: that feels right...

Joey says: Seriously, both of those were RIGHT ON POINT!

Sara says: woohoo!! So, you need to slow down and quit taking care of everyone. Do something for yourself.

Sara says: okay, love ya! gnite!

Joey says: K, girl I'm out.

Sara says: word

Sara says: see ya!
