Joy to the World!

Those were the very first words I wrote in my journal today. Can you guess why?

My sister is engaged!!

Isn't it wonderful? Isn't it glorious! I'm so happy! John is the best guy in the world, and my sister Jenny is the best gal! Jenny & John! How perfect!

Dear Jesus, bless this wonderful couple!

No! Go away! Don't look!

Today, when I was getting ready for Mass...I did something that at first I couldn't believe.

I was about to blow-dry my hair after washing it, but for some weeks now I've been wondering what I would look like if I had bangs. Every time I asked my mum, she would say no! But finally, this time, she said, "Ah, whatever Anna -- But you'll have to bear the consequences, eh?” Not very encouraging, huh? But I jumped right off, grabbed a pair of safety scissors, and snipped away! When I looked in my bedroom mirror, what I saw horrified me. It was … me! ...But...terrible …looking! There was this big tuff of hair right above my eyebrows...and it was crooked too!

So, nearly petrified, I clipped away, here and there, a bit more. And looked again. And was just horrified …again.

Just then, Noah, my brother, walked by my open bedroom door. Oh nose! I cried desperately that he please not look, and covered my face. He, of course, then walked straight into my room and said, "Ah, c'mon, show me. What'd you do?"
"No! Go away!"
"C'mon Anna..."

And I showed him. And everyone else when I went downstairs. My mum couldn’t help but say ‘I told you so!’ And, I have to admit, it looked so bad that I cried! :-O

So. We were about to leave for Mass. I looked dreadful. And I didn’t know what to do. Luckily my mama isn’t all bad :P
Quickly she cheered me up, and helped me by telling me my hair would look much better if I let it all down instead of up in a ponytail. And it did! Of course, I pinned half of those horrid bangs up with a barrette so that it wasn't so thick, and now, when I look in the mirror -- I may just be getting use to it but -- it actually doesn't look that bad! :) I sort of actually like it. Although, when I let ALL of the bangs down, it looks terrible again.

I suppose that it was…just one of those things. I know I would never have been satisfied if I hadn’t cut my bangs…And now, I must bear the consequences, whether happy…or not :D

God bless!

School has started! And so has a cold...


A very sniffily, coughy, sour throaty cold, too. Did it have to start right now? *Sigh* Oh well!

Monday was good, but I didn’t get as much done as I would have liked. I feel a bit better from this old cold already…maybe I can do school tomorrow. Today I was just too sick!

It’s so sad about Steve Irwin! Noah, my brother, said to me the other day that he felt as if he had lost a very good friend. I’m sure lots of people feel that way. He was such a great guy!

I just watched A Little Princess. The more recent one, and that one always makes me want to read the book so badly! I’ve already started it again! I’ve probably read that book 6 or 7 times. It’s definitely one of my favorite books. Talking about books, there are so many I want to read! The Count of Monte Cristo is very high on my list, and so is Belles on their Toes, Anne of Avonlea, Maurice and Therese (I’ve almost read that one, but I had to give the book back to my big bro, so I’m going to buy one online. It’s such a wonderful, magical….remarkable book!) I just can’t wait to get to the library.

I’ve been doing a lot of journaling lately. I use to start a diary every week or so, write a few things in it, and then give up! But when I started this one…it was like I was really talking to Jesus! I start each entrance with “Dear Jesus,” “Dear Father,” "Dear Christ,” or something like that. And I just…talk to him. It’s really wonderful.

Well, I have a headache and it’s getting late! Goodnight world!

Happy 1st of September!

I hope you all have a wonderful month! :)

My sis has started her own blog! Here is a link:
It's going to be a great blog!

Goodness! This post is very out-dated.

Today (the 4th, was my older bro Jonathan's birthday! Happy birthday Jonathan!

We had my sis Jenny, her boyfriend John and, of course, Jonathan over for a Bar-B-Q! It was very good. :)

Tomorrow school's starting for us! I know it's a bit late....but we just moved! We did as best we could! I'm kinda excited. A new year. Getting closer to college! But that's still a loooooong way off, so don't worry, Mummy! :D

Well, off I get!

God bless!
