Long Time No Post (a sad record)

WARNING:
prepare yourself for a potentially very long and random post.


Hey, guys!!

Oh my gosh, I feel like I've been dead on here. =P

Yeah, well, you'll have to excuse me, as I have some legit reasons why I haven't been on here. (and by the way, I really did want to write on here. But a few things kept me from doing so... I really missed you guys. It just showed me that I never want to, EVER, stop blogging.)

First off... LONG TIME NO SEE!!!! I've missed you guys so much. <3

And thanks to everybody who was praying for Toby. Unfortunately, we had to put him down, not just because of the sores, but because of other reasons associating with the fact that he's always been rather protective, especially of my mom, because of his bad experience in the puppy mill. But, anyway, thanks to everybody who prayed.

Oh my gosh, guys!! We are SO CLOSE to 150!!!!! I really can't wait to tell you guys my name. :) I've seriously been like freaking out I'm so excited. (because I seriously do love my name. And I love Storyteller, but sometimes it kind of seems... um... unpersonable. =P You know what I mean? Like I'm not even a real person. Which... I am... Anyway....)

While I was gone, I seriously have been coming up with a whole bunch of awesome story ideas. (one revolving around a girl named Odessa... don't you just love that name?.....) And I'm thinking on contacting a little somebody about some ballet... I really do love ballet, but if I write a book about it, I want to make sure I get it right, right? (wow, that sounded a little funny...)

I have been reading A LOT lately. Like I finished three books the day before yesterday, I believe it was. (except one of them was half finished already from the night before. But you get the picture. I WAS READING A LOT.) Have you guys ever heard of those books about Enola Holmes, Sherlock's little sister? They're pretty good, though I'd definitely say +12, as they aren't Christian books. The woman who writes them, Nancy Springer, I believe her name is, has a wonderful writing style that makes the books really enjoyable to read. (they're pretty funny... though I would've written them a little bit differently.) She managed to capture the voice of 1889 London while still giving it a funny voice that was fun to listen to. (yes, this is coming from the girl who got bored reading Alex Rider.)

Also, I took it upon myself to memorize this verse: "Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life God promises to those who love him." James 1:12 (yes, I did that off memory. Yay!) If you haven't memorized that verse, I really enjoyed doing so, and I'd encouraged you to do that, too. :)

I also have some new plans for blog designs for my other blogs. How scary. =D

We have finally sold one of our puppies!! Yay!! Well, it's a little sad, because come on, they're stinking cute, but we really do need to sell them, because it's really hard to take care of them, what with my dad having cancer and everything and all of the treatments that we're having to go through for all of that...

Speaking of my dad's cancer... he's going to be having radiation starting not this week but the next. I'm not sure during that time how much time I'm going to have to post, but I'll try to sneak in time whenever I can grab it. Who knows? Maybe I'll have more time then ever. It seems I keep on getting surprised with all of the time I end up having on my hands...

My therapy for my torn ACL's going pretty good, though sometimes it takes a lot of willpower to go runningcoughcoughjoggingcoughcough or biking. (I personally prefer biking, because... coughcough... it's easier... coughcough....) Though sometimes, of course, when I'm doing a plank it makes me wonder if running's really as bad as I always think it is when I'm doing it...

By the way, I feel really bad about not being able to comment on your blogs for the last five days, either. :/ Makes me feel horrible... and wouldn't that be awful if I couldn't visit you guys during my dad's treatments?? Man, that would be really sad. If that happens, please understand that I really wish I could leave you guys a comment, and please don't get seriously mad at me. :(

Last night, my friend and I went on Amazon Prime and watched a movie that we both love... Man from Snowy River. (Amazon Prime is awesome, just to say...... I don't even know how we got it free. =P But I only think it lasts one more day... which is sad... anyway...) Have you ever watched the Man from Snowy River? Gah, I love that movie. It's so awesome. And, as my friend says... "They all look so much better in the first movie." I believe she was referring to Jessica's crazy hair in the second movie. lol Her hair is crazy. =D (but I seriously think Jim looks like a little kid in the first one...) Anyway, love that movie. My friend's learning to play Jessica's Theme on the piano. It's sooooo pretty. She's so talented. :)

Anyway, I suppose I'm boring all of you out there, so I'll bid you a fond farewell.

Farewell. :)

  2. Hello! :) Welcome back!!!! :D

    I've never heard of those books about Sherlock's sister! I'm gonna go look them up! They sound neat! :)

    That's a wonderful verse. It's just great to be able to recite Bible verses to yourself when you're glouchy feeling. :)

    I hope your dad feels better really soon.

    xoxo

  4. OH MY WORD! I adore Enola Holmes!!!!!!!!! Read at least a whole book in one night I loved them so much. They are the best.
    Our library does not have them all though ... *starts crying like a baby over the whole thing*
    All right ... I'm ... *sniffle* ... I'm fine!

    Oh, I am so sorry about your poor doggy. I know it must have been hard. I always get this sick feeling thinking about ... that sorta thing.

    Still praying for your dad. :)

    Yep ... know all about the running thing. I HATE it with a purple passion. :( LOL! LOVE biking though.

    1. I agree! They're so interesting. :) I think our library has all of them... and I just checked out all of them. =D (if I motivate myself, I can read pretty fast... I'm known by the librarians for always having a stack of books. ;D)

      Thanks, Abilaine. :)
