I had the wonderful privilege of timing for the debate tournament this past friday. I can't believe that I have waited this long to get involved in debate! One of my friends asked me why it was that I love it so much, but have never done it. I told him I really had no clue, I just thought when I was younger that it was boring, and that no one in their right mind would ever do debate. Boy, have my opinions changed. Now, I can't wait until next year so I can do it! Unfortunately, Mr. Wirtz changed the date for the March tournament, so some of my best friends can't compete. :( Oh, well, at least some of my friends will be there! :)

I was @ my aunts house this past Sunday-Tuesday because Mema had a knee replacement. my 11 year old cousin, MK, and my 9 year old cousin, David, had a snow day on Monday. We had so much fun together, since the three of us were left alone all day while the adults were at the hospital w/Mema. Mk and I sat around in our pj's all day and watched several chick-flicks. I have always had a hard time bonding with mk, so that was a blast.

Can't wait till the March tournament! See y'all there.

YAY!!! It's FINALLY, after 2 years, SNOWING!! I am so incredibly happy. I don't have school today, and I don't actually have much to do! It might not be a whole lot of snow, but it is DEFINITELY enough!!!!

Thanks to my wonderful still 12 y. o. even though she is 13 (haha, you know what I'm talking about) cousin, ya'll all know I'm the family poker champ! My aunt says that the games in our family have constantly gone down hill, from backgammon, to B.S, and now texas-hold-em poker. :)

I had a pretty good Christmas. I got an iPod from my parents, and amazing speakers from my wonderful grandmother. I also got a razr cell from the aforesaid grandma. :-) Girls, we really do need to have a sleepover sometime. How about during the summer, we should all go to the lakehouse like Emily and I did, and MKK, you can join us! That would be fun!

As I've looked back over this past year, I've realized what a crazy roller coaster it has been. I've struggled some with fitting into my family. I know several of them read this, so I'm not going to go into huge detail here. That I shall save for my diary. However, I'm trying to learn to be content with the family God gave me, regardless of how imperfect some members may seem.

We did finally have that piano recital (long story). It went relatively well. The piano didn't seem QUITE as bad as it had before.

Oh, yeah. I was just reminded by my mother that 24's season premiere is tonight in about an hour, and I still have some homework to finish. :)
