Never said it would be easy

Ugh everybody! Maybe my (.) is coming or something, sorry to be all awnry but just need to vent and since this is my journal. I know I won't get more then I can handle but seriously feel like the worst trails galore are just piling up like suffocating raindrops falling out of the crap-clouds of life into my arms and lighting a stress fire, you know?

Hardest.

Week.

Ever.

Two reasons, one, it's girl's camp but I'm not allow to go bc I'm not "officially" a "leader" any more and that just ticks me off bc the girl's are missing out on my example and no offense but the other leader's have doublechins and faint mustache's which just makes me bawl, AND

{b} I figured out which part was mine and made amaze soccer ball shaped fondante-smothered cookies like a week ago plus TWICE let him wear his dang Brasilia jersey AND relistened to every freakin' soccer mission story so sorry to be all negative but if JJWT doesn't shut up about the world's cups, I'm going to loose it.

might be my favorite line, EVER. Complicated nonsense analogies are pretty authentic.

crap-clouds of my life-my new fav

How dare JJWT talk to you about something he cares about? For rude! As if you ever drone on and on about crafts, GNO, bunko or the Bachelorette! I srsly {CaNnOt BeLiEvE} you haven't blogged about that yet!!! I'm sure you're getting awesome date ideas from the show though - Broadway here you come!!! Maybe JJWT could take you somewhere in a helicopter for Fathers Day - you know - {HaPpY WiFe, hApPy LiFe!!!}

P.S. - Can't you just sneek into GC? You look like a {LaUrEl} to me!!! Frills!!! (Be sure to pack your bikini!)

I think you should go to the stake pres and tell him that you feel left out about girls' camp. He should invite you to speak at stake standards night all about how Modest is Hottest. Then you can tell the YM that when they see someone as stunning as you in a modest bikini they should just hum a hymn.

Is JJWT watching the world soccer on a live video stream from work? oh wait. does he even have a jobber? Or is he tivo-ing every stoopid game? My nephew has signed off Facebook til the whole soccer thang is over cuz he doesn't want to read some spoiler before he has the chance to watch every single game. whutever.

Crystal said...

You should offer to do a YW activity and wax everyones lips! If you stop thinking of yourself and help others feel pretty you will feel better.

Steph said...

Two words:

Anthrospreee.

Michelle Simmons said...

I just don't get soccer. It is the world's worst sport to watch. But I did laugh so hard I cried a little at this post. TAMN your life is unbelievably unfair right now. Sorry but I'm glad I'm not you today.

Frau said...

Ugh, doncha just hate it when the hubbers is in his cups? Ugh, I don't know why mine keeps going on about the world's cup. Sorry, but if you believe in Jesus, you don't need any other means of support, visible or covered!

In your trials, remember that Jesus suffered in sheer agony for all the pain of our hubbies forgetting flowers/ half-birthday/ ignoring us for half an hour. He was happy to take on the pain of any drama we want to have. That had better make you feel better.

(Can't believe I typed that. Wow! I'm amazed at the smart things I leave on people's blogs.)

Alanna said...

Um, any chance you might be prego?

mindy said...

tamn-

you never come acrossed as awnry.

"piling up like suffocating raindrops falling out of the crap-clouds of life into my arms and lighting a stress fire"

That was so deep! This expresses how I feel! I want to quote you like Sheri Dew

GladysIcanbee said...

my response to your awesomest journal entry....."Goooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Megz said...

So sad the girls won't fill your spirit at the campfire. Maybe you can meet them at the church parking lot and hand out some darling hygiene kits since they'll be so gross?

myimaginaryblog said...

Yes! I know EXACTLY what you mean about the suffocating raindrops that light a stress fire. I think. Sort of.

Token Asian Friend said...

The World's cups sounds much more interesting than Stanley's cup. That's all my husband talked about last week. Boring!!!!

Salt H2O said...

on the bright side you'll have a totally new trial to talk about in Fast and Testimony Meeting!

(the story about the foot fungus you got thanks to a cheap pedi was getting kind of old)

--H said...

HA!!!

Amen and amen re: World Cup! It must cease!!

Melissa C said...

I just hope JJWT doesn't start going on about the Big 10/Pac10/Big 12 shakeups....That is too confusing right now-and I have 2 frumpy engineering degrees from2 different Big 10 schools, so I should know the math of these things. And it is all my hubs has been talking about when he is not talking about world cup. We could barely plan my daughter's 4th birthday party due to it! She did look like a pricess with massive castle cake, so it turned out all good at least.

dharvey said...

I agree, the worlds cups have way to much hype and it just makes me want to go shopping at the crafts store. Endure till the end, these trails will soon be over, then it will be time for Wimbleton tennis hype.

Also, Happy Second Blogiversary ! SSB is now 2 years old. I've loved every minute of it. :-) XOXO

debbie said...

I rilly think you should get yourself to Girls' Camp on testimony night. totally cute and wearing white and everything and bare your testimony about how we should avoid the dirt in life and stuff like that. The girls will totes feel how dirty they are and want to be more like you... um... I mean to be more richeous. You can just tell the Bish that you felt prompted to come and share.

Carolyn said...

Which part is mine? And which part is yours...now tell me one more time, I'm never quite sure....or something like that right?
I totally GOT IT! FANTASTIC!!!!


Did anyone else get this awesome reference to one of those old songs from Young Womens that we used to belt out during Singing Trees at Girls' Camp? Superb!

Public Artist said...

Um, soccer ball shaped cookies? Amazing. I've been working so hard on that round shape.

Laurie said...

Wait. You LIKE girl's camp? Seems very Ruth-esque. I'm frownsmiling in my heart for you, Tamn.


Maybe your ward has cabins and indoor plumbing, but still . . .

Elise H. said...

"I won't cross the line...like I have befooOOOOOore...can you tell me now, which part is mine...and which part is yours.....!"

Now that's going to be in my head all day.

Thanks a lot.

Motion DeSmiths said...

Thank you for referencing MY FAVORITE SONG EVER!

Mhana said...

Amen to motiondesmiths. Now it is time to remind your bob which part is his. A good way to do this would be to have him focused on the cups with eternal significance -- the ones on the front of your {chest}. If that means boob surgery, that is what it means to save your marriage

Heather said...

Thank you for mentioning fondant, and thereby showing how awsome it is. Frosting is so lame and old, not hip. But where's the pics?

Rebecca said...

AHA! You made my day. Luv ya.

Polly said...

Ahhh...girls' camp. The most cult-like aspect of a church with plenty of cult-like aspects. I was an active member for nineteen years, and I only bore my testimony once, and it was at the end of a week at girls' camp. I was hungry, thirsty, lonely, filthy, tired, sunburned, bug-bitten, constipated, and suffering from menstrual cramps. It was dark, we gathered in a big circle, there was fervor aplenty, and...suddenly...I knew the church was true! And so did everyone else!

The next day we went home, and after a shower, some fiber, and a hug from my mom, I gained some perspective. Very similar (I'm told) to returning home after the second weekend of est. But with smores.

Jennifer said...

You are SO. BRAVE.

Sarah F said...

one of the best posts ever. so funny!

Lynette @ My Craft Discovery said...

Love the "which part was mine," and trails=trials...took me a minute to figure it out, and then I laughed....hard!

Gwen said...

I love my(.) It means I'm not preggers.

Jessica said...

I'm sorry you're beeing tossed upon lifes pillows, tamn!

SlonikerScoop said...

"The other leader's have doublechins and faint mustache's which just makes me bawl." That line made me laugh so hard I practically peed me pants (which is not too hard these days after having 4 kids!)

What's it like to be my friend? Probably awesome said...

The fact that you always call this blog your journal is awesome.
