Look-alikes and other matters

So apparently I haven't updated in a while. I don't actually know what to say, but here goes nothing. I did that look alike thing, but I couldn't get it to come on here. I put it on my xanga instead. If you want to see it, here is the link: www.xanga.com/seein_stars053. You can read the other posts on there if you want, but I wouldn't add it to your favorites or anything (not that you would anyway, just a figure of speech I guess) because I never go on there anymore. I just keep it for emergencies like this and so that I get an e-mail sent to me from a Haiti blog. Minnesota was tons of fun!! The Yonkers were with us almost the whole time, and we got to know each other a LOT better. I didn't know that I didn't know that much about them, but I learned a lot, so I guess there was a lot I didn't know even if I didn't know it!! Just wanted to make that sentence really confusing, so you know. Lol. I am going to try not to say "know" anymore in this whole post. Lol... not gonna happen I don't think. THANK YOU ALL FOR PRAYING FOR ME WHILE I WAS MAKING MY DECISION ABOUT FEBUARY!!! I know that was really big, but I wanted it to stand out so nobody would miss it! I really appreciate all the prayers, and I just wanted everyone to... um... be aware... of that. Lol. Trying not to say "that word that you can look up a couple of lines to see if you aren't sure what I am talking about." Lol. Me and Paige had a lot of fun and I can't wait to go and see her and the rest of the family in Febuary! I can't spell Febuary though, so that is kind of a bad thing I guess. I never... can tell... where the other "R" is supposed to go. It's so annoying. I was also trying to think of a way to get some extra money (fundraiser I guess, but I hate that word, so I was trying to avoid it) for Haiti. I can't knit or anything though, so that it out of the option. OH! But... if anyone wants a super-cool, hand-made-especially-by-Tori potholder thing... I can make those. AND... I have lots of colors to choose from. My Grandma taught me how to cross-stitch a long time ago, but I don't think I have finished one yet, so that probably isn't the best idea. I am willing to babysit for people for extra money for Haiti too. If you have any other ideas, let me... tell me what you are thinking... so I can get some more ideas!! Also, just in case anybody was wondering, the reason I am trying to raise money for my trips is because they are pretty expensive. I am going on two of them, so that is more expensive yet. Most of the extra money I have, I donate it to my "Haiti fund" which is actually real. I have a box in my room that I put all this extra money in for Haiti trips. There was a lot more in it before, but the... um, I forgot what this is called... it is the first amount of money you have to pay... a down-payment I guess it's called. But anyway, I had to pay that and that zeroed out my fund. I have a whole $0.39 left. If I make this any longer, no one will come visit anymore, so I will stop now. Don't forget to tell me any fundraiser ideas if you have any please!! Or if you just wanna say hi, that's ok too!!

I'll say hi, and then I'll add my 2 cents worth. HI. Okay on to business. I'm so glad that God answered your/our prayers and that you're going to go to Haiti. As far as fundraisers go, I might be interested in super cool potholder...hmm, they might make a good Christmas gift. I think that the church is having a craft sale on December 1. I might sell some fleece scarves as a fundraiser for Romania, and if you're interested, you're welcome to share a booth with me and sell some of your stuff. Babysitting is a good way to go too, or other odd jobs. I'll for sure let you know as I come up with ideas. Maybe we can do some together, and Anna too. Sorry this is so long :) See you tomorrow! :)
