Great year a comin'

I think that this year will be extraordinary for several reasons. I can't even begin to express how overjoyed I get when I even begin to think about how awesome this year really will be! I shall break it down and explain why this year, 2009, is the year God is making up the two-three crappy years I've had previously. I'm soooooooooooooooooooooooooo grateful.

Reason A:
I have a job. Good thing Dave's shop gets dusty everyday, along with having loads of receipts to sort and enter in the computer. Can anyone say job security? Thank goodness I can.

Reason B:
I am going to be a senior this year. Scary thought, but that's just life and I need to accept the fact that next year on July 24th, I will be an adult. Legally.

Reason C:
I am actually trying to do more things in the community; service, leadership, etc. I just want to apply myself on a more outward level and not be so worried on myself. Knowing that service really does help others and actually helps you forget your own problems, I know that I can enrich myself by doing things that benefit others. Seminary and my mom have taught me that first hand.

Reason D:
I will be driving more, hopefully, and that means I will have my license this year too. Mom, get ready for a jump in insurance!

Reason E:
This December, we're trying to take a family vacation out to Utah for a Christmas extravaganza with my extended family. You may think UT isn't too exciting, but man, I'm thrilled. I haven't been back there since 2003 and I really do miss my extended family very, very much.

Now, here are the 2 biggest reasons as to why I think this year will be wonderful. Can I get a drum roll, please? Thank you very, very much.

Biggest Reason 1:
I'm going to freakin' Europe. EUROPE! EURRRRRRROPE! It's just now hitting me that I'm going (maybe that's because we went thrifting yesterday for our throw away clothes once we're done wearing them.) Mom, Dave said I should get that half shirt and wear it to work--should I be concerned?

Biggest Reason 2:
I'm going to the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Kansas Speedway this October. Although my first year of tasting the sweet odor of race cars in the Sprint Cup series was last year, I am fortunate to have the opportunity to go again this year, with my best friend. For those of you who don't know the difference between the multiple series of NASCAR (yes, there are multiple series; Trucks, Nationwide, and Sprint.) Trucks are like a sucky high school team, Nationwide is the NCAA football, and Sprint is like the NFL of car racing. There ya go.

Wow, hope you have a great year! I am very excited about Tony's new season starting in RED! RED happens to be the color of ALL my "teams" so it's a good sign. We are having a Nascar party for the Daytona race to kick off the new season. If you come to the Kansas race, I'll be there! It's where we live and we go to that race every year. This sounds like an exciting year for you, I wish I could go to Europe, that will be an amazing experience for you, Good Luck!!!
