The Bachelorette

So last night I went over to the Edmonds house and watched the Bachelorette with Emily, Caroline, Collin, Melissa Petty, Alanna Blair, and Paige Legan. After we watched it everyone was pissed. It was mildly entertaining because no one expected Ed to win. We were all going for Kiptyn or Reid. But here's why I'm glad that Kiptyn didn't win: I think that so often we get dumped or end a relationship and wonder what is wrong with ourselves. When your evaluating the situation you think of ways you could have enhanced the situation or continued to let it descend. Whether that be consciously or subconsciously, I think we all have reasons we blame ourselves for the relationship ending. As America watched this season, I think most people would say Kiptyn was not a bad person, there is nothing wrong with him, and he seemed like a good guy- yet he still got the boot. Just because something goes wrong or the relationship ends, maybe its nothing more than it wasn't as good a fit. Kiptyn will have no problem getting a wonderful girl and if Jillian is happy and was being true to her heart, then hopefully her and Ed will last.

I realize that was a semi in depth analysis for a reality tv show but that was just a thought I had last night as this happened.

Beginning again..

So I have decided to start blogging again due to the fact that I am moving to Georgia and I hate talking on the phone... For those of you that I have not talked to in a while, or just haven't told (which is more likely), I'm moving to Rome, Georgia. I'll be living with Emily Brock, one of my good friends from the JH Ranch that I worked at the past 2 summers.

So I'm trying to get used to blogging again, so I'm going to just start with my week thus far. Also, because its been somewhat eventful and mildly entertaining.

Monday, I drove back from Abilene with my Grandparents who have been staying with us so that was fun. On Monday night Paige Legan, Emily Edmonds, Alanna Blair, and myself all went to the rangers game. We met up with Hutton Harris and he sat with us for the game and then after we all went to get drinks and appetizers in celebration of Emily's 23rd birthday. It was a lot of fun and it turned out to be a gorgeous night. It was supposed to rain, but didn't at all and we beat the Red Sox. There were a ton of Red Sox fans there so that made it even better.

Tuesday I took Justin to the airport and then after had an eye doctor appointment. The guy that was helping me before my doctor got in dilated my eyes. Which is normal and I have had done before, but he tried to use an old bottle of dilation drops and it was empty so he grabbed a new one and poured a TON. Not just a drop or two, I'm talking like 5. I couldn't see anything close up which is normal but everything was super blurry. Awesome. So I needed new glasses and after my check up and everything I still couldn't see close up, just from a distance. WHen we were trying on new glasses I had to look into the mirror from far away but couldn't see close up. My sweet friends that work up in the Ballard office, Mona and Jan, helped me pick out glasses that I'm anxious to see what they look like on me, now that my eyes are working again.. We'll see, I'll keep you posted.

After that I went to work for a couple hours since I have been gone for the past week in Horseshoe Bay and Abilene. Straight from work I got to go to the Coldplay concert. It was INCREDIBLE>> I loved it. They are amazing in concert and if you ever have the chance to go, you should.. Cause it rocks. They played all my favorite songs, some old, and new. I went with Carly and Ben, Landon, Zach and Kara, Ginny, Shelley, and a few others and it was so fun. It was a HUGE crowd and I saw Emily and Paige who were there sitting right behind us, So I ended up sitting with them for the concert.. Hutton was there with his brother and he came and watched part of the concert with us. It started at 7 and was over around midnight. They also gave away free CD's at the end of the concert which was legit. They are neon pink and green and the CD is neon orange.. It's called "Left Right Left Right Left."

So now its wednesday and I got to start my day off at the dentist. I really like my dentist and I have known him since I was young as its one of Justin's childhood friends' dad. ALso, I have never had a cavity in my life, which I don't say to brag because I should have had more, but so that you understand where I am coming from when I retell this story. Never having a cavity, I have no idea what to expect when I go in for a filling. I get there a little bit early and am waiting to get called back. Once I do, I go back to the chair and she starts telling me what's going to happen, taking my blood pressure, etc. I told her that I had never had a filling and was kinda nervous due to the fact that shots/needles are involved. I am sitting there and she uses numbing cream and I start to think too much about what's going to happen. This mistake dooms me for the rest of the morning. I start to breathe heavy, even though nothing is happening I'm thinking about what's to come. Dr. Proctor comes in and within the first 5 minutes I can tell I'm about to pass out, but of course I don't say anything because I'm thinking i'll be fine, just breathe. False. I black out. So its just for a second but they are like are you okay, your fine, but I told them I just am bad at this. They let me rest for a couple of minutes and then begin again. I think I'm fine again, but of course, I'm not. I start the whole thing over and then next thing I know I have cold paper towels on my face and a fan blowing on me. Once the color came back to my face and I stopped sweating profusely, the doctor tries to start on a tooth that he didn't think needed to be numbed. But of course because I'm a freak, I can't handle that either and my stomach starts hurting. He tells me to relax, he's done with shots but that doesn't help. It's not that I don't know this, and I wasn't really nervous anymore about the fillings, but I just couldn't calm down. So then he puts an oxygen mask on me and tells me to breathe. He ends up giving me laughing gas because I wasn't relaxing as much as he wanted. So needless to say, it was a horrible experience. Afterwards I realize its not a big deal, but for whatever reason, I can't seem to calm down once I get going. Haha the nurse was like do you get panic attacks often? I said, uh not really, just when needles are involved. I'm glad they were all such good sports about putting up with me and said it wasn't a big deal, but I felt stupid.

Well thats all for now, I'm just trying to get back into the habit of blogging but as always I love comments, so feel free to leave some!
