it's a small world after all...

I don't know what it is about me, but my world seems to be exceptionally small. I always meet people, who I am connected to in a weird way.... For example, I just found out the other day that my friend Dennis (who I have known for over a year) is cousins with a boy I went to high school with!!...I also used to work at LDS sometimes (when I was full-time at Cottonwood hospital), and there was a girl who worked there named Mandy. She was from Colorado. Well, one day we were talking, and it turns out that she was from Montrose, Colorado, and she was friends with my friend Stacy! I was a nanny in Switzerland from 2001-2002, and Stacy came to stay with her relatives in Switzerland, and she lived 2 train stops away from me. Stacy and I had traveled to London together!... I don't know what it is about me, but my world is so small! It is crazy!

Parents...and snugglebumbs...

I absolutely love my family! I am the oldest (and only) girl, and I have 3 younger brothers. My 3 brothers are all completely different, but I get along with each of them. I absolutely ADORE and LOVE my brothers!! My brothers are Josh (24), Joey (almost 23), and Andy (19). And then there's my mom and dad. My dad just stopped by to visit me at LDS and we had dinner. He wanted to see where I work and so I brought him down to the lab. I was afraid of what he would say, because he always happens to say something embarassing, and he called me his 'snugglebumb' in front of my coworkers! Apparently, when I was a little girl, I loved these little dolls/toy things that were called 'snugglebumbs', and I would always ask, 'Daddy, can I have a snugglebumb?'...and the name stuck... Luckily, I am actually used to it, and he explained it... Nevertheless, it is still somewhat embarassing... My dad always has to brag about me (in front of me), and sometimes he just says random stuff.... I know that he loves me, and that he is proud of me....But sometimes it just feels like a bit too much! Oh well, I guess that most people feel like this at some point in their life. Does it ever stop? I actually thought that I would not experience it so much at my age! Isn't junior high and high school the time for being embarassed by your parents? :)

One more to go!!!

So I just barely finished my 3rd semester at school!! It was the most stressful semester so far, but now I am done!! I can't even believe how fast the semester has gone by...it's crazy!!! And now it is the holidays... :) I love the holidays! (as I have said before)... Anyway, I am still working at LDS. I like it here...some of my coworkers are not very nice, but oh well... I do work with 'diarhhea dott'-which always brings back funny memories. At least I get to see Ursula, BJ, and Spencer!!! I worked out at Alta View yesterday, and I wish that I worked there more often! I would work there, but it is too far away for me! I worked with Brooke, and it was so good to see her again!! I hope everyone is enjoying the holidays!
