It's February 6th, 2009

Where did you begin 2008?
I think at home. Which at the time was Joseph and Mary's house. Natalie had just gotten married and I was very into Tyson at the time.

What was your status by Valentine's Day?
Ha. Single? I think it was right after Valentine's that Hayden started.

Did you have to go to the hospital?

Did you have any encounters with the police?
So I got a ticket for running a red light I didn't even know I ran. I was pretty sure it had turned green. But he said no. I think it was just 'cause I was delirious driving home late from Mike's.

Where did you go on vacation?
Payson. to mountain bike. Greer area. to snowboard. and Mexico!!

What did you purchase that was over $500?
a laptop. summer school.

Did you know anybody who got married?
no one I can think of. who does that anyway?

Did you know anybody who passed away?
yeah. but part of life deaths.

What sporting events did you attend?
ASU football!

What concerts/shows did you go to?
....Love You Long Time. small show. fun show. an unfortunate night.

Where do you live now?
In Mesa. Weird, huh?

Describe your birthday.
Well, I kinda had two birthdays, from two boys. There were many happy feelings and many scary I don't know feelings.
Tyson sent me the cutest little birthday package from Argentina. He told his sister he really felt like he needed to do something great to hold onto me, to remind me.
Mike wasn't supposed to get me anything. It was against the rules. I came home to a basket full of my favorite things in my room, a vase of flowers, and a beautiful framed picture of the temple that he had taken. That night he had told me to dress in a formal, and he picked me up and brought me back to his house where he had a candle-lit, three course dinner set up (made me cry) and Singing in the Rain afterward. The entire night I was certain and terrified that he was going to propose to me (which was also against the rules. I had a lot of rules.)

What's the one thing you thought you would never do but did in 2008?
Marry someone that wasn't Tyson.

Any new additions to your family?
YES. Six new nieces and nephews and Mike.

What was your best month?
definitely not September.

Made new friends?
Mike's friends talk to me now?

Have any life changes in 2008?
Yes. Very much so. Major much so. And it's all Mike's fault. I really hated him for winning. Really. Probably more than he knows. Then again, he knows me pretty well.

Change your hairstyle?
Ha. Not by choice. It burned off.

Get a new job?
Why, yes. At the beginning of the year I was a nanny. Over the summer I was an EFY counselor, and then I started at TLW as an accounting person. sometimes i'm called an Accounts Payable Clerk. sometimes Assistant to the Controller.

How old did you turn this year?

Get married or divorced?

Be honest - did you watch American Idol?
Not once. Mike tried out for it though. Fag.

Start a new hobby?
Yes, but that's between Mike and I. Oh and I guess mountain biking could count. If we ever find time to go again. Oh and swimming! I swim now. Natalie got me started. Oh and I guess doing crunches is new too. Is that a hobby?

Been snowboarding?
Not since Jan, but boy do I miss it.

Are you happy to see 2008 go?
Too late. It's already gone.

Jake said...

my favorite answer was "mike tried out for it. Fag." I was rolling. I don't think Rindy has ever called me that.
