After the new year, I had a list of things that I wanted to get in the habit of doing. Of course the list was long, but some of them had to do with my physical appearance.
#1- Making an effort in getting ready in the morning = hair, make up & cute outfit. Check.
#2- Start exercising again. Check.
#3- Whiten teeth again. Check.
#4- Start wearing my retainer again so my teeth to go back to being crooked…. Unchecked! I went to put them on again the other night and the bottom and top retainers DID NOT
In the past 5 months I have had an unusual amount of nightmares. I hate it, I wake up feeling terrible. Either people are making fun of me and making me want to cry, or people are chasing me and trying to kill me. Either way…. I wake up with my heart racing and feeling down. Does this happen to anyone else? I figure I am not normal. The only thing so far that I have found helps me is falling asleep to classical music. Any other ideas?
Every week during sacrament meeting (during the talks) I make origami cranes out of the programs. I have been doing this every week for the last few months. I make as many as I can from when the talks start to when they end. My speed has improved a lot over the months. There are a group of girls that sit next to me many Sunday’s that find it amusing. They can tell when I start to get low on paper and will hand me programs or whatever they can find to keep me going. Don’t worry, I still listen to the talks. In fact… I think it helps me to pay attention. Kind of like when I used to knit in my college classes. (my professors actually thought it was awesome because it was a “lost art”). Anyway… after I make as many as I can make, I leave them there for the next ward to find. I wonder if people in that ward wonder who makes the origami cranes every week. If I were to find those in church every week… I would think it was awesome. Maybe it is just me. This last week I made a flock out of 3 programs and half of a calendar. It was impressive. But I was caught. Later that night at ward prayer, the 1st counselor in the Bishopric came up to me and asked me if I was the one making the cranes in church. I confessed. He said he gathered them all up and handed them out. He thought they were neat. So I guess I wasn’t in trouble… but… I hope the next ward was not disappointed to not see any cranes that week. I am not giving up. I will make more next time. "An ancient Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish by a crane, such as long life or recovery from illness or injury. The crane in
My good friend Rob has been in the ward as long as I have. In that time we have formed a couple traditions. We give each other bird hugs and we watch 80’s classic movies together. Recently we watched “The Dark Crystal”, “
Me: “I have been waiting my whole life to know what name he calls out. I’m so excited”
Me: “Here it comes!!!”
** movie continues, Bastian yells out the name, at that point, the subtitles stop, and then continue after he is done yelling the name**
Me: “WHAT?!!! The people who put in the subtitles couldn't even understand it enough to put it in! I was so excited to finally find out. Guess I will never know.”
So Rob ends up on Google to search for the answer. Wikapedia gives us an answer. The name that he yells out is Moon Child. What? No way. This is the first time I don’t believe Wikapedia and look for a second opinion. Nate, another friend that stayed to watch the movie suggests looking up the screenplay. I google the screenplay of the movie. Found it. We go to the script for that part of the movie. Indeed… “Moon Child” is the name that he gives to the Childlike Empress to save Fantasia. I was disappointed. All I can say is…. His mother must have been a big time hippy.
