Pretty Great Day!

Last night I didn't sleep.... at all.... I just lied in bed all night. So when mom got us up for a dentist appointment at 4:30 I was excited. Pretty great day!
We got to the dentists and his computers had crashed so no X-rays or anything of the sort.... so we left with out anything happening, we'll just have to go back another day. Pretty great day!
We got home and I did my hair and it looks adorable! Pretty great day!
Went to seminary and had a fantastic lesson. Pretty great day!
Mom picked me up and we went to the DLD(drivers licence division) and we were the only ones there. they called our number before I was done taking my picture. I GOT MY DRIVERS LICENCE!!!!!! Pretty great day!
I took mom to work and by the time we got to her work it was a BLIZZARD outside!!! We slid and everything I was a little scared but we made it thorough. So I stayed with mom until the storm passed over. Have I ever mentioned how much I love my mom! Pretty great day!
I drove home all by myself and I didn't crash and I didn't get lost. HOORAY for me!!!! Pretty great day!
Bri and I went to her MaryKay consultants house and got facials and we look BEAUTIFUL!!!! Pretty great day!
Even though I'm tired and I still don't feel well today has been a pretty great day! You know what? It is going to get better! Cause tonight is Biggest Loser!
Overall it has been a pretty great day!!!!

Ice Fishing

Soooo.... Sunday night I went to bed around 9:30. I wake up at about 10:15 from my cell phone ringing. It is my Best Friend Megan. Our conversation went like this...
-Me:"Hello..."(in a grogy tone cause I just woke up)
Meg:"Hi Ash! Sorry to wake you. Hey do you want to go ice fishing tomarrow?"

Now at this moment I'm thinking do I want to go?.... NO!!! Did I promise to go?.... YES!!!!

I convinced Meg to go to the school dance by telling her that if she would go with us in our group I would go ice fishing with her.-

Me:"Hold on let me go "ask" my parents."-

Me:"Mom can I go ice fishing with Megan tomorrow?"
Mom:"Do you want to go?"
Me:"No.... but I sorta promised."

-Me:"Meg I can go."
Meg:"GREAT! I'll come pick you up around 6:30 tomorrow morning."
Me:"Great. See you then..."

I set my alarm and went back to bed. I woke up at 6 and got ready to go ice fishing.
Megan came right on time.
We didn't leave her house until about 8.
We drove for like ever, and finally made it to our destination, which was Rockport.
We then met up with Megan's uncle and cousins. In all there were 3 adults and 8 kids including Meg and I.
Me and Meg were the oldest kids. The next oldest was 10 maybe 11 and then the youngest was 3.
We climbed from where we parked down to the water. I say Climbed because we had to climb accross big rocks.
Me, being the clutz I am, fell and hit my tail bone on a very pointy rock.... I still hurt.
Because it had been raining there was a four foot gap between land and ice.
The men built a bridge and we all crossed safely.
Because it hda been raining there was 2 or 3 inches of water on top of the ice.
It was very slick but relitivily warm.
Everyone got all set up and started fishing. And then the wind started to pick up and it got really cold really fast.
The little ones had been splashing and playing in the water and were drenched from head to toe and when that wind started they got cold and whiney real fast.
So Meg and I took them up to the car while the boys fished some more.
We got them out of their wet things, which included, boots, socks, coats, and snowpants.
They were all complaining that their feet were cold and so Megan took off her boots and gave each of them a sock.
HIGHLIGHT OF THE DAY: After the girls got their sock onto both of their feet, they started playing "mermaids". I remember when I was little and could make up stuff like that and get away with it.... It sucks to grow up. I just thought that it was the cutest thing ever.
After watching the girls play "mermaids" for and hour the guys were ready to be done. They packed everything up and we headed for Megan's uncles house, about ten miles west of Rockport.
We stayed there for two hours.... I was ready to go home.... It was, afterall, 2 o'clock.
So we started our journey home. All of us, except Megan's dad of course, slept all the way home.
WORST PART OF THE DAY: After all that.... getting up early just to sit around and wait til 8 to leave, freezing to death, listening to crying and pouting, and sitting around for two hours doing nothing. WE DIDN'T CATCH ANY FISH!!!!

Needless to say I will NEVER go ice fishing ever again!!!!!

Food Is The Greatest Comfort

Yesterday I didn't feel to great. I went to bed and when I woke up I had two new voice mails. I listened, they were from my bestest.
She said "I heard you found out. Call me"
Next message, "I totally understand if you don't want to talk about it but call me anyway and we will talk about something else."
My reaction.... none.... I had no idea what she was talking about....
Call Kaitlyn.

Me, "Hey, What's up?"
Kaitlyn,"Heard you found out. Do you want to talk about it?"
Me, "Found what out?"
Kaitlyn, "Oh.... This is awkward."
Me,"Found what out Kaitlyn?"
Kaitlyn,"I don't know if I should tell you."
Me,"If it's about me don't you think I ought to know?
Kaitlyn,"You're sure you want to know?"
Kaitlyn,"So Megan came up to me today and asked if there was anyone else I could room with because there are 2 other people who want to room with them."
Me,"2 people how is that gunna work if you left the room there would only be room for 1 person?"
Kaitlyn,"Well she asked me if I would leave because you weren't going to be there so I wouldn't really know anyone in the room.... You see Mr. DeHann said you couldn't go cause you haven't been there to learn the music.... Sorry....
Ashy.... are you there?"
Me,"Yeah.(soft sob) Can I call you back later?"
Kaitlyn,"Sure. See ya."

I lay in bed crying for a few minutes..... I think to myself.... What always makes you feel better?..............................................
Blasting my music and Cooking something wonderful.....
So that is what I did.
I made chicken Alfredo on noodles, bread sticks, and corn.
I didn't care that the only thing I could eat was the chicken and corn. I didn't care who ate it, if anyone at all, I didn't care about if I had to do dishes afterwords. I just cooked it, and of course made it look BEAUTIFUL.

Here is the finished product....
I didn't even remember why I had been upset until Kaitlyn called around 9 o'clock. By then it didn't matter any more I knew it would all work out. So I told my mom what was going on. She emailed Mr. DeHaan, and we are going in to see my school counselor Thursday or Friday to figure out what we need to do for online schooling and for choir.
I keep asking myself why I was crying? Why did it hurt so much? I figured it out.... It was because I didn't hear that information from Megan. I was crushed that she had "replaced" me. She didn't even have to think about it. I'm hurt cause no one told me. I would have gone to school raised all the money I needed, and then when it came time that is when they would have told me. That's why I'm hurt, that's why I cried, that's why I didn't talk to Meg this morning after seminary.
And then the irony of it all is that this morning in seminary we learned about forgiveness. HA! Jokes on me I guess. But my questions is not how do I forgive her, because I've already done that, the question is how do I forget about it? Forgive and Forget. Maybe someday I'll figure that one out.
