Well, I made it. I, along with the red cast, the impala, Betty Kay, and three suitcases made it up here to the great state of Kansas last night. Is Kansas the sunflower state?? I see sunflowers on signs everywhere. I should probably know this about the state I'm living in. I just got back from dropping off my mom at the airport. She is so excited about Kansas. I am too. I really expected it to look like west Texas here. I think the western part of Kansas may look like that, but over here on the east side it is beautiful. There's rolling green hills with tons of trees. I've always defended Lubbock when people called it ugly, but it really is ugly. It's so pretty here, I'm so excited to live in such a nice area. The neighborhood where I live looks like Pleasantville. The people I'm staying with are so cute. And the church seems pretty awesome. So, as you can tell, I'm loving it so far. Please pray for my feet. My broken foot is healing very slowly and my other foot is still badly sprained from that crazy fall out of the shower. So, I'm still in a lot of pain. And it's really hard to get much work done when you feel like crap. Other than that things are great. I'm excited to fill all of you in on the cool things KC has to offer! I should totally be a tour guide.

I don't know what it is about my mom, but she cannot say words correctly to save her life. Seriously, she is a 1st grade teacher. You'd think she could get her phonics down. Tonight she asked me if I wanted to go get some gelapo. She was trying to ask me if I wanting to get some Italian ice cream known as gelato. What's gelapo, where did she get that? I have know idea. My brothers and I keep a running list of her word mistakes. Here are some classic ones:
"I lay my head down on a pilla" (pillow)
"I would like some guacamala on my taca" (guacamole, taco)
"Have you seen Jurastic Park?" (Jurassic)
"I miss NBC's old nightly news anchor Tom Brokoff" (Brokaw)
I know, it's totally hilarious. I wonder if her students go on to the 2nd grade pronouncing vocabulary words incorrectly. Don't get me wrong, I love her to death, look how cute she is:

But come on, let's learn those words Betty Kay.

Well, I think the addiction is severe. This last week without Grey's Anatomy has been tough. Since I don't have an plot lines to talk about, I'll fill you in on the latest GA gossip. Grey's is moving to Thursday nights to fight against CSI. I don't know how to feel about this. Some of the Grey's stars will be on Oprah this Friday. And I saw an unconfirmed report that Meredith is pregnant in real life. Hmmm, I wonder if this will affect the plot.

I'm only going to be in the 806 a few more days. On Friday I'm going to Dallas to spend some time with my niece (and brother and sister-in-law) then I'm off to Kansas. I'm a little nervous about this summer. I don't know a single person at this church. And I'm always worried that the kids won't like me or something. It's funny how intimidating teenage girls can be, even when you're not a teenager.

I've been able to spend some great time with my new pal Charlie Bowman. He is so cute. Andy and Amy, you did a great job.

I got my hair cut last week. It's really short. I can't decide if it's cute or butch. Oh well, it's just hair right?

I'm bored. On Wednesday I took a trip to Walmart and The Dollar Tree and wore myself out. So, my dad told me I had to take it easy. Taking it easy in Lubbock Texas is not that great. Now, taking it easy in Hawaii sounds pretty nice. There's just not a whole lot of day time tv that is very good. My parents do have an awesome cable station called soapnet which shows Beverly Hills 90210 everyday, and twice on the weekends!! If I could just have 90210 reruns in Hawaii, I'd be set.

Ahhhh, the good life.

Well, the doctor told me that I broke my 5th metatarsal and the bottom of my tibia (leg bone). That was quite a fall. The doctor decided I needed to wear a cast for three weeks. So, here I am in the heat with a big red sweat machine wrapped around my leg. He didn't have any fun colors for me to choose from either. I was hoping for pink. Once I had camouflage casts, that was really cool. Cody Batton's brother was the one who put my cast on. I think that is neat.

Someone (Jeremy Thornton) is tired of my Grey's Anatomy posts. Don't worry, there won't be any more of those posts until September :( And by the way, ESPN and Fox Sports are not the "real world."

I had a super duper birthday. I can't believe I'm twenty four. That's seems old. (but not compared to a lot of people who read this blog -- haha!) My parents took me to Harrigans for dinner. It was yummy.

I must close now. I going to attempt to take a one legged bath. Let's pray for no more injuries!

Okay, I'm ready to update about the show. Last night I had so much drama just trying to watch it, but finally about 9:30 we were able to sit down and watch it thanks to the power of DVR.
Here are some of my favorite parts of the show:
-"She was turning in her V-card"
-Alex finally being a nice guy again
-Derek touching Meredith's hand when they were putting the dog down
-Meredith confronting the chief about his affair with her mom
-Izzy's beautiful dress
-Anything Bailey did, she is so funny

Derek and Meredith, please just get together. Stop hurting Addison and Finn.
Izzy, please don't leave the show, we love you.
George and Callie have the weirdest relationship.
I love those interns, they are a family.

I have an appointment with my orthopedic doctor today at 5:45. So, I'm supposed to spend the day in bed with my broken foot propped up to get the swelling to go down. It's funny, I usually spend all day wishing I was in bed, but now that I have to just lay there bored, I really don't want to be in bed all day.

Well, this episode made me way too tired to write about it. I must go to sleep now.

Oh my gosh!!! Thank you so much ABC for not making me wait a whole summer to find out what happens next. Izzy: What were you thinking!!! Is Burk going to die?? I doubt it. Will Izzy loose her job? Will Denny die? Oh, and when Meredith told Finn she still loved him (obviously Derek) it was so sweet/sad, I think they call that bittersweet. But what about Chris O'Donnell? This is a good one!

Well, I'm back in the 806 now. And it's hot. I'm ready for KC.

After my tumble in the shower (by the way, thanks a lot for laughing at me-you know who you are!) I was left a little weak. So, yesterday as I was loading up my car to leave Abilene, I was trying to be very careful to avoid another fall. Unfortunately, as I stepped off the curb I rolled my other ankle and fell and spilled my stuff all over the parking lot and under the car. What the crap. I really need an assistant. Well, I came home and my ankle was really hurting and it was all purple, so this morning my mom took me to the doctor. Turns out, I broke my foot in two places. My goodness. Now I'm supposed to hobble around on the other foot which was already hurt from the other fall. This is a really inconvenient time for a broken foot. I'm supposed to go up to Kansas City and run around and be silly and crazy. I can't be crazy Sue with a broken foot. Ahhhh! Does anyone want to trade legs with me. I would really appreciate it.

This is the Spin Spa. I bought mine for $15 at the local Bed, Bath, and Beyond. This is a wonderful product that has greatly increased my joy in the tub. I must warn you though, this product is dangerous. One morning, while I was taking a shower, I was using the pumice stone attatchment on the bottom of my feet. I guess that made my feet a little slippery because the next thing I knew I was laying on the bathroom floor. I had fallen out of the shower! How scary! I was so scared I had to call my dad and tell him how scared I was. Luckily, I didn't hurt myself too bad. I didn't use the spin spa for a few days after this incident, and now I only use it if I'm sitting down, I can't take any chances.

I'm awake. I did go to sleep for awhile, but now I'm awake. I guess I'm worried about my finals. New Testament will be here in four short hours. I can't believe that after today, my first year of grad school is over.

May 1st, the due date of my final paper! That's right, all of my papers are in!

I'm still awake. Now, I realize that it is not THAT late yet, but I'm much closer to being awake than asleep. Maybe this is God's way of telling me that I need to study some more Greek before I call it a night.

A couple of things happened to me today.
First, I got an email about an additional scholarship available to ministry students. I need all the money I can get, so I started reading the application for it. It turns out that this nice family who donated the money for the scholarship only wants the money to go to a MALE ministry student. Ouch, that hurts. That's pretty discouraging.
Second, I got a letter in the mail from my dear friend Emily Lemley. She is the editor for Power for Today, a Christian mailout thing. She wants me to write a couple of articles for this little magazine. I realize that just about anyone can write articles for this and it's not that big of a deal, but it's really nice to be asked. That's pretty affirming.
