here is my Not Me Monday:

Today I did not wake up at 5:00 a.m. and get a shower and get ready for school on time. We were not on time and I did not have all my homework from Friday finished

Today I did not only work 2.5 hours and go shopping after work

Today I did not take a nap when my room does not look like a cyclone went through it. No I did not!

Today I did not go to my Senior night and get escorted by my parents. I did not cry or get emotional.

Today I did not get to eat two meals with Anthony, lunch at Subway and dinner at McD's

So there it is my NOT ME MONDAY.

p.s. our relay team qualified for Districts this weekend. We get to go swim at the OHIO STATE AQUATIC CENTER! I am so excited =D you don't even understand. This means that I get to have 3 more swim practices and I get to swim one more time. This is something that I never thought I would get to do. I worked my butt off all season to maintain my position on the 200 medley relay doing breast stroke. Although my two besties are not going to be there I am going to have fun with Courtney Rachel and Blaire! YEA! well talk to everyone later

Love ALways

Fire Destroys Dresden Feed & Supply!

Hello everyone! I have some very sad news to announce. Last night our local feed supply store burnt down. It wasn't just a feed store either the building has been in Dresden since 1900. The mill served as a feed supplier to almost all the local farmers and was a very popular gathering place for the local farmers too. The really bad thing about this is that just 2 weeks ago the Dresden IGA was burnt down too. The grocery store was the only one in town. This too happened on a thursday night. I hadn't heard about these other two fires until these bigger ones have happened but in the last 2 months there have also been two others before the IGA and now the Feed Store. This is so sad and scray for this to be happening to our small town. It has to be arson because all of them have happened on Thursday nights and stuff like this just doesn't happen. It makes me wonder what is next?

I don't really have anything else to blog about today. I guess what is going on is just too disturbing!

I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Love Always & please keep the village of Dresden

Well I was tagged on facebook to write down 25 things about myself. I had fun doing it so I am going to do one on here now too. But it is going to be 25 different things from what I did on facebook.

A much needed..

Blog catchup!
I know I have not posted on here in like a week. I have been so busy, I have had swimming which got pretty intense but we also have like 7 days left (saddens me but will be glad when I can actually get something done!) school has been crazy and work is just work.

something I realized I have done so far this year is I have read pretty much a different book like every week of the year. So thats going to be my goal. I am going to try to keep up with my picture a week but I am also going to do one for like a book a week! why not?!?!

This week I am reading Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas. At the end of the week I am going to give a little summary of the book and what I thought about it.

Here is my catchup of "a picture a week"

Me & my two best friends. They showed our swim meet on tv, we all went to Bdubs to watch it! I love these girls though!

Jillian & Allie. This picture was taken at our meet in Athens on Saturday. I think this picture just shows how happy and fun these two are to be around.

Well I hope everyone has a GREAT week!
Love Always
