boo for kidney stones

October 23 2005
welp, today has not been a very good day.  i woke myself up at 9am this
morning with a terrible pain in my left side. and i'm talking TERRIBLE!
so i called my mom and we decided that i needed to go to the ER (i feel
like i practically live there nowadays) so we went and after blood
tests and a cat scan we determined that i had a kidney stone. 3 mm big
but it was almost to my bladder so the worst part was over. MAN let me
tell ya it was one of the worst pains in my life. and after having
pleurisy and a stroke, that's saying a lot. so i have been on drugs all
day long, peeing every 3 minutes except for when i'm asleep. but on the
plus side, as my mom was here taking care of me, she did my laundry and
cleaned my room! you can now see my floor! everybody should come see
this once in a lifetime feat ;)

~Carla needs to pee and encouraged by Kim slips into a small park and
pees on the grass while Kim keeps watch.
~Carla needs to know how precious and lovable she is.

~Carla needs to subtract 42 from 865.

remember when...

October 06 2005
I got this from my friend Carla and thought I would post it....oh how I sometimes wish I could go back to those days...

iiTs FuNNy HoW LiiFe GoEs By sOO qUiiCk!

Close your eyes... And go back...

Before the Internet or the AIM

Before semi automatics and weed

Before playstation2 or X-bOX

Before the 5 hours of homework you put off every night...

Before when We got Our Hearts Broken

Way back...

I'm talkin' bout hide and go seek at dusk.

Red light, Green light.

Playing kickball & dodgeball until your porch light came on.

Mother May I?

Red Rover

four square

Hula Hoops

Running through the sprinkler

Happy Meals

Getting the privelage to sit in the front seat of the car


Watchin' Saturday Morning cartoons

Like Hey Arnold and Doug

Or what about legends of the hidden temple, global guts, double dare, and who, ARE YOU AFFRAID OF THE DARK!

Who could forget Snick

Or the teenage mutant ninja turtles,and Power Rangers,

Christmas morning...

Your first day of school

Bedtime Prayers and Goodnight Kisses

Climbing trees

Getting an ice cream off the ice cream truck

A million mosquito bites and sticky fingers

Jumpin' down the steps

Jumpin' on the bed

Pillow fights

Runnin' till you were out of breath

Laughing so hard that your stomach hurt and you almost peed your pants

Being tired from playin' all day

Your first crush...

Rainy days at school meant playing "Heads up 7-Up" in the classroom

Remember that?

I'm not finished yet...

Kool-Aid was the drink of the summer

Giving your friends a ride on your handlebars or spokes

Wearing your new shoes on the first day of school

Class Field Trips

When nearly everyone's mom was at home when the kids got there.

When getting high was swinging on the swingset

When $5 seemed like a million, and another dollar a Miracle.

When your parents took you to McDonalds and you were so cool.

When Toys r Us overuled the "mall"

I want to go back to the time when...

Decisions were made by going "eeny-meeny-miney-moe"

Mistakes were corrected by simply exclaiming, "do over!"

"Race issue" meant arguing about who ran the fastest.

Money issues were handled by whoever was the banker in "monopoly"

Catching fireflies could happily occupy an entire evening

It wasn't odd to have two or three "best" friends.

Being old, referred to anyone over 20.

The worst thing you could catch from the opposite sex was cooties.

Nobody was prettier than Mom

Nobody was cooler than Dad

Scrapes and bruises were kissed and made better

It was a big deal to finally be tall enough to ride the "big people" rides at the amusement park.

Getting an inch of snow was a dream come true.

Abilities were discovered because of a "double-dog-dare"

Spinning around, getting dizzy and falling down was cause for giggles.

If you can remember most or all of these, then you have LIVED!!!

Pass this on to anyone who may need a break from their "grown up" life...

i double dog dare you!!

doubting thomas

October 03 2005
What will be left when I've drawn my last breath
Besides the folks I've met and the folks who've known me
Will I discover a soul-saving love
Or just the dirt above and below me

I'm a doubting Thomas
I took a promise
But I do not feel safe
Oh me of little faith

Sometimes I pray for a slap in the face
Then I beg to be spared cause I'm a coward
If there's a master of death
I bet he's holding his breath
As I show the blind and tell the deaf about his power

I'm a doubting Thomas
I can't keep my promises
Cause I don't know what's safe
Oh me of little faith

Can I be used to help others find trth
When I'm scared I'll find proof that it's a lie
Can I be led down a trail dropping bread crumbs
That prove I'm not ready to die

Please give me time to decipher the signs
Please forgive me for time that I've wasted

I'm a doubting Thomas
I'll take your promise
Though I know nothin's safe
Oh me of little faith

~Nickel Creek

your eyes open (keane)

September 29 2005

Well it's a lonely road that you have chosen

Morning comes and you don't want to know me anymore

And it's a long time since your heart was frozen

Morning comes and you don't want to know me anymore

For a moment your eyes open and you know

All the things I ever wanted you to know

I don't know you, and I don't want to

Till the moment your eyes open and you know

That it's a lonely place that you have run to

Morning comes and you don't want to know me anymore

And it's a lonely end that you will come to

Morning comes and you don't want to know me anymore

For a moment your eyes open and you know

All the things I ever wanted you to know

I don't know you, and I don't want to

Till the moment your eyes open and you know

For a moment your eyes open and you know

All the things I ever wanted you to know

I don't know you, and I don't want to

Till the moment your eyes open and you know

i'm a totalitarian (whatever that means...)

dr. douglass!

September 20 2005
so i was babysitting today for megan while she went to the doctor, and the 2 kids reminded me so much of dr. douglass's kids (the kids i'm with in the pictures) and so i just decided to call him today! (fyi - he moved up to greensboro to teach at UNCG this year and i've missed his family terribly!) i was on the phone for an hour with both mittie and dr. douglass and i think i'm going to go up and visit them for fall break! oh, how i love them!

it's not even 9am yet!!!!

September 19 2005
so this morning has been horrible! i had to wake up at 6am so that i could take the dogs out before i had to be at work at 8, and the dogs were so sad that i couldn't spend any time with them. then i walked straight into a spider web where the spider was hanging like, 3 inches off of me (NO exaggeration!) and this spider was like the size of a dime. not one of those little black spiders. THEN i was late to school and when i went to maintenance to park (which it's never filled at 8am) there was NOWHERE to park! so i had to park out past cummings hall and walk to the LRC which isnt' really bad, but while walking, i dropped my black hoodie somwhere so i had to go back and retrace my steps to look for it! so i ended up being like 20 minutes late for work and i feel horrible :( hopefully my day will get better!


September 13 2005
so i went to sing karaoke tonight at uhh....whatever bar that is at double tree hotel and had a BLAST! it was with the SAI girls and man did we have a good time! i sang a broken wing by martina and then brinn and i sang does he love you (sorry la - it was just a rehearsal for our time :) ) then i met these 2 guys who were both music people (they were older) and one of them got his undergraduate at IU (indiana) which is where i want to go so we started talking about that....it was phenomenal! he was like "you should have no problem getting into the graduate program there from what i heard tonight!" but i'm not really sure if that's true....guys, 98% of the graduates from that program go on to sing at the metropolitan opera!!!!!!!!!!!! oh only 3 more semesters......
