Here I Go Again

My Thanksgiving was nice. Thirteen people total were in the front living room, and that is a lot for the size of the room. 🙂 I felt sick from Friday to Sunday, though. My poor tummy. 🙁

I have a new phone. Mine got wet. How? HA. Just … don’t ask. I’m not sharing it with anyone else. Those I did share it with have told others, and I didn’t really want anyone else to know. -.- Long story short, I have Opera Mini 4 as an application. It was already installed, and I can view HTML on there! For me, that is awesome, because doesn’t show up as plain text anymore, and I can sign onto the WordPress dashboard. 😛 Unfortunately, I cannot blog from my phone because I only have 2000 characters to work with and cannot use line breaks. 🙁

So far, I love my Virgin Mobile LG Rumor2 phone. 😀 I have service throughout the entire house! I have the twenty-five dollar [plus tax] plan which consists of 300 minutes per month and unlimited everything else (data, messaging, etc.). I don’t talk on the phone much, so it’s perfect for me so far. With MetroPCS, my bill was fifty-two dollars [plus tax]. It’s a big change in the plan and the money, but this one fits me more. ^^

Last Wednesday on the way to Wal-Mart, my siblings (PIC), my mom and myself said what we are thankful for a few times from the youngest to the oldest. It was fun to hear what my mom, PIC were thankful for. 😛 I was creative with mine; I gave mine a lot of thought. I’m not saying the others didn’t, so don’t think that. I was just … impressed that I was able to come up with what I was thankful for and then give a complex, detailed explanation about why. For example, I am thankful for trees because they produce oxygen, and without oxygen, no one would be alive right now. Before that, I said, “I am thankful for my mom, because without her I would not have been born.” 🙂

As far as the coloring contest goes, I have decided to let Carrie be the judge. One part will be for creativity, and another part will be the “best” coloring.

I rode a horse Saturday. My mom put me on April because she won’t do anything you don’t tell her to do. I mostly sat on her, and I was content. The last time I really rode a horse was almost two years ago – it will be two years in January – at Winter Retreat at Allaso Ranch. I was proud of myself. I have to admit it though – what was I so afraid of? The height isn’t that bad.

The reason I actually got on was because I wanted to start riding again. I had confidence and courage in me to do for some reason – it was like a push that I needed. Anyway, I did it, and I’m glad.

Hopefully next time I will be able to get on faster and work the reins myself – someone had to lead me. I want to start riding again – especially since Alice will be coming to be visit sometime soon! 😀

I am glad you had a good Thanksgiving!!! Congratulations on the new phone and all the bells and whistles. You’d laugh at my cell phone as it’s so old that all it does is send and receive calls. I don’t have any apps on it. The good side is that the battery lasts forever!!

Also, good for you about getting on the horse. I used to ride when I was young and loved it. I still love horses, but I’m a bit over the hill for actually taking up riding again. Do you ride Western style or English?

Enjoy yourself and have a great day/week:~)

mhm glad you had a good thanksgiving. I don’t know anyone who has that phone but I am glad you got a new phone! Getting new phones are always exiting lol I am glad you love it too! I do not know anyone who uses Virgin Mobil lol I use Verizon.

And mhm i agree you should not regret stuff. it’s hard but everyone shouldn’t. I feel like people regret stupid stuff though. I try to live with no worries:) well try haha

You ride horses? That sounds awesome! There aren’t that many places to ride in the places I’ve lived in. Or you have to pay lots of money, and that’s not fun.

Isn’t Thanksgiving great? Infinite food! It’s nice that you guys are traditional and say something that you’re thankful for. I haven’t done that in years. It’s kind of embarrassing for me almost.

blahh! i have metroPCS and i can’t stand it! i only get service in my kitchen, and it take forever to send and recieve texts, but if i’m in town i get perfect service.. it just doesn’t make any sense! love your site btw <3

That is how it was for me, too. MetroPCS works in/near major cities. If there are a lot of trees, chances are your service will suck. 🙁

ahh! yes i get perfect service in the areas outlined well but that’s so true with the trees, because we’re SURROUNDED by them!

:O! I felt sick too but on Thursday for a few hours. I BLAME THE TURKEY!! :P! OooH! I like your new phone :P! its a keyboard slideout phone :O!! A lot of my friends have that phone :P. I have ,….. A touchscreen phone. :P. Oooh! that 25 dollars per month sounds like a nice plan 😛 I always made fun of MetroPCS. Its like everything is cheap (compared to sprint, at&t, tmobile, and verizon) and the signal isnt strong. :O (70% of my friends use metro) :P When we had a trip to Lake Tahoe, like everyone except for 4 of us had MetroPCS and there was 0 signal up there for them IT SUCKS ):! But Im glad you switched :P! You are lucky to be able to ride on a horse ^__^.

Your old phone fell in the toilet didn’t it, haha. At least you got a new phone. That is one way to get upgraded.

I’ve never been on a horse before. They scare me. They’re so big and powerful! When I was in elementary school a boy in my class got kicked in the face by a horse and had to get a bunch of stitches. That’s probably the main reason I’m scared of them now.
