my brother

so my brother is in Afghanistan and has been since the beginning of this year. i don't ever hear from him. which sorta sucks. but i've lived with him my whole life and he broke my nose twice so its sorta mixed feelings.
everyone is worried about him being there and such but i'm not at all. hes fine. he will be fine. and i'm not worried at all. he is the biggest jerk i've ever met & he can talk his way out of anything and make anyone his friend. he is a quick thinker & he's been trained well. he always gets his way and wins whatever he does. it sorta sucks playing games with him or anything like that. but, he knows what he's doing and does it well.

the only thing i'm worried about is if he is maintaining his beard.

i'm sick again.

i never get sick. now here i am all contagious & disgusting for the 2nd time in less than a week.

i also bought 3 cardigans 5 shirts & 1 skirt today. which is all stuff that i don't need at all. i need shoes, sweaters & pants. i'm going to just say that being sick confused me? ok

early morning 37

it was 37 degrees outside. not my type of degrees at all.

I'm really hungry. I want an english muffin. One time when I lived in California, Audra wanted an english muffin but forgot what they were called. And she said "I want one of those things you guys always have, I forget what they are called. I think its like, an Irish Bagel or something."

very sick

i was very sick since saturday. let me tell you all about it.

i had to go home from work pretty much as soon as i got there.
i had to get picked up & i was crying because i was getting a fever & i felt so weird.
then i was miserable all night long & no one was here to take care of me. this was the first time i was all alone being really really sick. it was hard. i couldnt drink tap water because it made me throw up. i had to ask my room mate to bring me bottles of aquafina. she did. i am very happy she did. i threw up probably my entire body weight in one night. for no real reason at all. it was horrible. because i was by myself. i hurt all over. i couldn't move. i just don't know how i got that sick all of a sudden. i had a crazy fever for two days.
i've been really dehydrated the whole time i've been sick because its hard to drink. i've been really weak and haven't been able to move a whole lot. i'm up now because i needed to feed my cat. she is smart. i told her i was very sick and each time i told her i was sick she rubbed her head on my head and rested next to me. she's a good friend. i need to go rest more in my bed. i wish i could stand long enough to shower. i wish i could eat.

i don't have much to say. besides i stole a garbage bin from the laundry room in my apartment complex. because we needed a garbage bin with a lid because anouk always gets in it (gross) and our other one was growing mold at the bottom, which is also disgusting. so i forgot to go to walmart (ew) last night to get one, but i had already threw out our garbage can before i left. so we really needed one. & my laundry room has 3, and so i figured they could do with out one.

i need to cook more, i haven't cooked anything in a while. i am getting so lazy it sucks. its cold in my house. oh oh i got a really good book called "the guernsey literary & the potato peel pie society"

i'm home

yes yes. i am home. anouk is on my lap & its cold outside.
kansas was quite the adventure. it was a lot of fun, which sounds crazy to say. but really it was a great trip.

Back in the 1860s-1870s my ancestors on my moms side immigrated from fife, scotland to victoria, kansas in hopes of owning their own land & establishing themselves. however, it didn't work out as planned. their family of 10 was cut down to 4, after the mother & 5 of her children fell ill from typhoid & died. their mother passed first in st louis on their way to victoria, & the 5 others fell ill along the way. in victoria another scottish family, the philip's aided & helped the sick kids & the family then later buried them, in unmarked graves that were lost for a time. the youngest son of that family had written a detailed letter to his daughter in much later years because she would be passing through the area. he told of all the misfortunes and hardships from the crossing to victoria. & those letters were given to my grandpa in the 1970s. he was from that point on going to pursue his dream to find the graves of his grandpas family. after 40 years, he & my mom found them. they went to kansas in may to look & found more than they expected. not only did they find the graves, but they found decedents from the philip family that aided my ancestors. they helped so much with filling in history for my grandpa & mom, they knew so much of it. the historical society in hays, kansas (next town over from victoria) helped so much as well. there was a wonderful memorial for my ancestors that was held october 11th at 3pm, & it was a surprising turn out. people showed up to respect not only history but my family. it is an amazing story & i am so glad it turned out as lovely as it did.

my mom is writing a book that will be published about the whole story of the seth clan & her travels and research and basically the whole story of finding our ancestors. everyone that helped her & my grandpa told her she needs to. i can't wait to read the book.

day after

this morning i woke up at 8:30 to a rainy morning. i fell asleep at around 2:30 am. not much sleep... yet here i am still up & awake. i cleaned my entire apartment (besides kenzies room) & i didn't just touch things up. i swept, mopped, dusted, re-organized, re-placed, & made everything perfect the way i like it. my apartment feels nice and cozy. all we need is a rug or two. i got to use my heater again today. it was exciting. i am so domesticated its almost sad. i just turned 20 & i like to clean my house, cook dinners, plus... i get excited to buy curtains. oh man. oh well.

moving on. i have been really craving to make my room into a matching sort of deal. because right now its really ridiculous. & normally i'd explain my ideas. but i can't because people always take them. lets just leave a clue to my room idea with this:
