Zyrtec, My SpringTime Best Friend

   You know what's funny? I am not allergic to anything but I have super bad allergies. Zyrtec is a spring time staple for me as it seems that it's the only medication that brings me relief without putting me into hibernation.  
  I guess I will have to put up with itchy eyes and runny nose for the rest of the season but Zyrtec (my springtime best friend) will make it so much easier.

Water Makes Me Feel Like a Champion

   We have this joke around our house, "Water makes me feel like a champion," but I've always wondered about water. How can this clear liquid be so healthy for us? Why can this tasteless liquid, taste so good on a hot day? I just don't know.
    But what I do know is, water makes me feel like a champion.

Violaters of Signs

     For every stupid sign somewhere, there was a stupid person that caused the need for that particular sign.
   Every time someone with no common sense does something dumb, someone else has to make a sign to prevent this from happening again. This must happen more than we'd think (judging from all the signs.)
   Now, I play a game with myself. Every time I see a stupid sign, I think of the stupid person that made the need for these horrible (and seemingly useless) signs.

Undesirable Desk Partners

   Even if you are no longer in school, We've all had an undesirable desk (or seat) partner, whether it be at work, school, or even on an airplane. In middle school, I have encountered this quite a bit. This is because I have eight classes a day and we often change seats. I have come up with a plan, called A.I.M, to help tolerate these people. .

 A- Act like you can tolerate them sitting next to you
 I- Ignore when they do stupid/annoying things
M- Make the most of it! even though you're sitting next to someone unwanted, doesn't mean you have to stoop to their level and be jerk-ish back to them.

   These steps should help you deal with your unwanted desk partners

You Betcha'

   On our summer journey of 2012, We made a quick trip to Canada. We stopped at Niagara Falls and ate at a small diner for breakfast. Our breakfast consisted of syrup and lots of Canadian bacon (Ok we also had pancakes and eggs.)
   We were there for a very short time but it was still cool. Would I go to Canada again? You Betcha'!!

Xylophone Gator

   When I was a kid, I had a xylophone that looks like an alligator. I don't know what was so enjoyable about hitting the colorful metal keys with the plastic yellow mallet. It might be the high pitched ringing or the vibrating after the initial strike, but it was fun and one of my favorite toys.  
   Along with my fuzzy pink princess telephone or my pink princess cash register (with a REAL conveyer belt!) Not to mention my ball popper, which had a blue handle and when you pushed/pulled it, the little colorful balls would pop up and hit the clear dome with a satisfying "POP!"
   Even now when I think about my childhood toys, my first thought is always about my xylophone gator.

Summer of 2012

I thought I would write a list of some of the main places we went during our journey in summer of 2012. This is not a full list (nor in order) but some some of it:
*St. Louis
*and MORE!!!!
