To blog or not to blog

I have nothing interesting to say, so do I say nothing? Because if it's just about blogging, and anything will do, even the mundane, well, I could do that all day baby.

You think you know mundane? You know nothing 'til you've lived in my shoes.

Yesterday I took a 4 hour nap (stupid mono.)

Yesterday I listened to 2 hours of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows.

Last night I spent almost 2 hours doing nothing but walking around Gateway.

Last night I was in bed by 9:15, reading Jane Austen's "Persuasion" and thinking, "I really don't like Anne."

Talk about mundane.

The most exciting thing so far today was this video.

But the mundane is about to end.

At 12:20 AM.

Oh yeah.

Kelly out.

Here for your enjoyment, to get you through the hump of eternity:


Rudyard Kipling

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too,
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream--and not make dreams your master,
If you can think--and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it all on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings--nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much,
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And--which is more--you'll be a Man, my son!

--Rudyard Kipling

A wonderful friend of mine got us tickets to the 12:20 AM showing…

Cheyenne, you rock, I'm SO EXCITED!

Call me what you want; say what you will, but I LOVE that Christmas music is on the radio. LOVE LOVE LOVE!

That is all. Kelly out.

Where were you?

This is a fun tag, I hope anyone who reads this takes it on and does it too. It get's ya thinkin'! Thanks Lizzy!

Where were you?

20 years ago: I was 4. I imagine I was floating around happily in a huge backyard with a sandbox. My parents were still married, and I'm pretty sure my older sister was mean to me at times. I think I spent a lot of time with my grandma, too, and my best friend Ashley.

10 years ago: Hmm…14. 9th grade at good ol' Hillcrest. I was gaining a huge interest in English and reading "classics". I read Pride and Prejudice for the first time, and fell in love for the first time (with that book, mind you.) I also became a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints on December 12 that year. I danced a lot, shattered my foot, and Trevor T. gave me the horrible nick name of "Kelly Breast" instead of Best when he called me down to the front office over the intercom. Never quite forgave Trevor for that.

5 years ago: Let's see, I was 19. I had just gotten married to the most gorgeous man in the world. Young, I know, be quiet. I had great friends and lived in Brett's grandpa's house on State Street next to the South Towne Center. Let's see, I was going to school and failing my Spanish class. Stupid Spanish. And um…I think that's about it.

3 years ago: We had just bought our first house and had a little baby boy and was on our way to number (SURPRISE) two. I stayed at home with my little cow pie and loved every second of it so much that I got a job at RxAmerica and became a Team Lead of 12 very feisty call center agents. I got to travel on business to Las Vegas and Pittsburgh and that was a lot of fun (minus all the throwing up in front of my boss. That was not fun.) Then I had the easiest and fastest delivery of a beautiful baby girl. That was a good year.

1 year ago: I began working at Franklin Covey and still love every day I get to be there. Brett and I had a real Christmas tree, which we decided was so awesome, we're doing it again this year. We lost good friends, but gained some new ones. I started hanging out with Tanya a lot more, and let's just say I'm a little more feisty now for that (thanks Tan). It strange to think, but 1 year ago Aunt Woo was perfectly healthy, and we had no indication that in a few short months she would be diagnosed with cancer, and in an even shorter amount of time would pass away.

This year: Woot! I don't know, this year has flown by with Mexico in January, which rocked some serious Kazba, thanks rents-in-law, and Cohen turning 3 (very emotional for me) and Kembry 2. My poor body has taken several beatings, including surgery, pneumonia, ovarian cysts, and mono. 2008, for me, will always be a black year when it comes to health. But my little sister got married to a really awesome guy, and her initials became KKK. Love her. My little brother and his wife are expecting their first baby, which I am thrilled about because now we'll have little cousins the rodents can play with (their other cousins are a bit older than them). Brett's little brother Brandon, who to me will always be 10 years old, tiny and in love with me, grew like three feet and got a girlfriend. I bet he'll hate that I posted that. Lucky for me, he doesn't read my blog! HA! We lost Aunt Woo in August, which was a hard blow. This will be the first Christmas without Mexican food on Christmas Eve for their family. So many traditions have already come undone, and I know we'll feel her loss most this December.

Yesterday: I slept (surprise), had a delicious dinner (Brett's an amazing cook) and watched High School Musical 2 with Tanya and made fun of it the whole time. It's a real testament of our friendship that she allows me to do this, as she really enjoys the High School Musical Movies, and I am particularly mean when it comes to Vanessa Hudgens overly nasal singing voice.

Today: Today is the day my friends! I don't know what that means. Today, I'm hoping to go to lunch with my mom and sister and my two little monkeys. Tonight, I'm hoping Brett will take me on a date, as it has been 400 years since I've been out of the house.

Next Year: Next year we'll be putting in 9,000 square feet of sod in our back yard, and then living the rest of the year in a tent in said yard. We'll be visiting a National Park with the kids for the first time, and I can't wait to see the looks on their faces when they see the red rock, which is my favorite. I won't be taking them to the Grand Canyon, because, frankly, I'm terrified that one of them will fall in. I'm serious. Leave me alone. Next year Cohen will turn 4 and Kembry will turn 3 and hopefully on our way to number three!

I did not die, though, sometimes I think it might have been a better alternative.

Mono. I hate you. Why do you torture me so? Why are you still with me? I haven't been nice to you. I've doused you mercilessly with antibiotics, anti-inflammatory's, and steroids. And yet you persist to hang around. Maybe you haven't gotten the message.


Anyway, for the rest of you who think I've fallen off the flat edge of the planet, I haven't. I just wish I had.

Here are some things that have been going on around me, but that I've missed due to lying in bed and dying.

-Halloween was awesome. Cohen was a vampire and Kembry a fairy. They were adorable. Pictures to come.

-Only 7 days 'til Twilight. Cheyenne, Tanya, I CANNOT wait.

-Brett's still going to school and working and being wonderful, of course. Ladies, wait around awhile, I think he may be a widower soon.

-I read one of my favorite books, "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time" by Mark Haddon. Look it up, it's awesome.

-I'm back to work after being ostracized for three weeks. I don't blame them for not wanting me around. I don't want me around. I'm miserable.

-I miss Tuesday's with Laci.

-I miss Sunshine and lollypops and rainbows.

-The rain is awesome.

-Only 7 days 'til Twilight.


That's about it.

Oh, and Stephanie, do it. Just do it. Dive in and do it. You'll love it.

Talk to you all when the energy I've spent on this post replenishes itself. I'd say about another three weeks.
