sunday of first week, a counselor friend in the cabin upstairs came running down and said "come quick, one of my girls is throwing up." i put on shoes and quickly became known as "puke mamma." as in most bothersome situations i'm involved with, i took charge. i got all the girls out of their beds and outside on the porch. i got the sick girl to the side of the porch - just in case. and with a little help from the camp nurses who couldn't stomach even looking at it, i got rubber gloves, trash bags, a mop and bucket, and some lysol. i cleaned off everything it got on (it was projectile), got the girl to change her clothes, and got the girl's mom on the phone. she soon was gone, and came back a couple days later, after having been to the doctor and finding out she had strep-but wasn't contagious. it was an interesting night. the next day, one of my campers started getting sick. food poisoning. she was the only one though, thank goodness. so, i of course was elected to take care of her, and her messes. she came back later too. my cabin got the black mop most of the week, i think it was 3 days in a row. one day we didn't even bother cleaning. just didn't want to. and of course, we got yelled at for it. oh well.
day camp was exhausting. it's only 3 days long, but it's more exhausting than a week. it was fun though. we didn't do much.
teen week is always fun. sunday, a mom and daughter walk in my cabin and the mom says, "are you relish? i've heard lots about you." my first thoughts are holy crap, and who have you been talking to? she tells me she heard i was a good disiplenarian. amazing. i lay down the law at camp. if you want to have fun, you'll act right. that's all. well. i took it light heartedly, no biggie.

me, brandon, april, david, farren, jason, chelsea, sean, and monica all went and played in the mud and water on the front lawn. it was AMAZING! so fun! we had a slip and slide type thing going- and a little football tossin', and a huge mud fight. it was the most fun i've have in a long while- i totally needed it. especially today. it was kinda yucky- but well worth the fun. best shower i've had... whoa... good shower. first thing i did when i walked in the room though.... BRUSHED MY TEETH... hahaha! it was SO much fun! if it's raining tomorrow- you'll know where to find me...
pictures to come soon... and very soon... if they turn out... april's waterproof camera... no flash... dark outside... night time+no flash=no bueno... "what's a bueno?"
hahaha! i love these kids! why did we just now really start hanging out this much! oh the fun we could have been having! but, i'm having an amazing time. good last couple of weeks... will make me not want to go home... sigh.

ate my first ever wendy's burger tonight...
it was pretty good. so many of my friends here are proud of me... hahaha!
went swimming tonight- swam my mile in 7 minutes or so, but that was with flippers. i'm thinking with out would round out at about 9 or 10 minutes. so, we'll see. i'm gonna probably swim everyday- gonna need a lot of conditioner.
Sunday, April 23, 2006
finally got to go to heber yesterday! it was really fun. jumped off some cliffs and swam around. got a little sun, and just had a real good time.
i think brandon fell asleep.
sean and the coke having a deep conversation.
liz soakin up some sun.
the cliff with all the people on top is the one we jumped off of the most.
these pictures show just how hard it is for the two of us to take pictures together.
brandon, sean, and liz... and some random kid on a rock.
betcha can't guess which leg is april's and which leg is mine...
so- it was really fun. and this weekend was just good all over. luke picked me up for church this morning, and then we went to colton's for lunch. now he's headed home. and i'm headed to bebee! how fun! no. no fun. it's the last concert of the year, and the seniors are going to cry... blah blah blah... so, i'm going to take a nap before i go...
Saturday, April 22, 2006
*background info* luke had to leave school early this semester- 3 weeks before spring break for medical reasons. came back for spring sing weekend. yesterday, april told me: "i was supposed to tell you yesterday that luke might have sent you something, and you should expect it to be here today- it might be a package..." so, i of course checked my mail like 5 times in 2 hours- and there was no package... but...
i got a phone call at 6:oopm yesterday from luke.... i was at the bank.
luke: heya gal!
m: how are you?
l: good, can you do me a favor?
m: of course.
l: look out the window in like 2 seconds.
m: ok, but i'm not in my dorm room.
l: i know, just look out the window.
m: i am looking out the window...
l: look out the window of the house.
m: i'm not in a house, i'm at the bank... still looking out the window...
l: what? crap!
l: i'm here in searcy! standing outside the house you're supposed to be babysitting in!
and blah blah blah! he got me. not as good as he had hoped for, but he still got me. he's here for a formal for chios, and everybody did a good job of keeping it a secret from me that he was coming- very cool. we hung out at the underground, and he ate dinner with me, aiden, and caily. it was fun. glad he's here.
FINALLY going to heber today- it' a ripe 88 degrees, with 45% humidity, and the sun is blazzing. i walked downstairs to the laundry mat, and started to sweat. that cold water will feel good. we're leaving sometime between now and 130- and who knows when we'll get back. i'm taking my camera- so there will definetly be another post with lots of pictures of my day.

taken at sonic last saturday. went with luke, david, and april for something to drink. david took this with his phone. it's a pretty good picture i think. my hair isn't dyed in it though- so... don't look at that part of my head...
this was taken in memphis back in february- on our way to beale street for lunch before the opera: don giovani. which was excellent. and the trip was really fun.
me and the roomie(april) in our new shades. so cute...
another of me and jodi in memphis
fun times at the beginning of the year- this is september- the choir retreat. jodi, me, andy frye, and toilet paper... i'm the statue of liberty.
christmas burgers... april and a flipflop... i honestly don't know. but it's a funny picture.
that's pretty much all i got. this has been an amazingly random post. oh well. meant to put this on here:
The Pentagon announced today the formation of a new 500 man elite Fighting unit called the United States Redneck Special Forces. These Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Texas boys will be dropped off into Iraq and have been given only the following facts about terrorists:
1.The season opened today
2.There is no limit.
3.They taste like chicken
4.They don’t like beer, pickups, country music or Jesus.
5.They are DIRECTLY RESPONSIBLE for the death of Dale Earnhardt.
6.Their favorite movie is “Brokeback Mountain.”
We expect the problem in Iraq to be over soon.
thought that was kinda funny. got it from andy- thought dad and arron would think it was funny. i'm tired. sleep.

most of the pictures i took were digital, but the best ones i took are being developed from film. i like the my digital camera- but film, and doing it yourself is judst so much more fun.
these too are really good- i love the one below, i think it was the best digital- can't wait to see how the real pictures turn out.
i think he's smiling... i can't tell.... honestly- 2 smiles. and one was forced out when i said, "josh, smile!"
that's just enough smile. it's a good picture. i wasn't really tall enough to actually see what the picture was going to look like before i took it, so this one was all luck.
looks like an album cover... -josh, if you ever make a CD- this is the cover... or one of the other 100 pictures i've taken of you.
i like this one.
it was so hot, we went to play in the fountain. it was 100 degrees! whoa! and it's only april! crazy... but, we're going to heber thursday! yay!
the water was cool, not as cold as the lilly pond, but it felt really good since it was so warm outside.
so, it was a good day, with only one class and test at 2. spending time with josh is always fun. and april and i went to walmart so i could turn in my 2 rolls of film.
it's a good week so far- just a little stress. not too much. i hope thursday isn't too hott. well, early afternoon can be, but around 6:30-8:30, if it could cool down just a smidge, that'd be great, thanks... yea, hi, this is bill lumberg... haha.
and by the way, not ALL the good ones are taken. (sticking my tounge out)

going to CPR tonight with jared. might be eating with josh in an hour or so. he hasn't made up his mind yet...
today was alright- a little stressful. tests and all... but i'll live. another test tomorrow, but atleast it's a tuesday.
ate with jodes and jared c. went to cpr with jared w. sat with "j-dub" and josh.
today's clumsy moment happened durning CPR intermission. kyle, and kevin decided to come sit with us for the 2nd half- so, as i was climbing over the row of seats that i walked down to hug kyle- what do i do, but topple over! so, everyone starts laughing, including me, and asking if i'm OK. of course i am... i just wish there was a cure for clumsy and accident prone.
Sunday, April 16, 2006
around 4 o'clock today, i got the urge, and there just happened to be a box of hair color in the room. so- this is "red hot brown" it looks more black in these pictures than brown, and some of it does look black in certain lights- but i dig it.
so- we'll see how long this lasts, and then i'll change it again. but, for now- this is good. happy easter!
Saturday, April 15, 2006
ended up not going to heber- luke wouldn't have been about to swim if we had gone, so we went bowling. april and i had the urge to use the kiddy bowling thing, cause we're not too smooth with keeping the ball out of the gutter. and she still kicked my butt. so did luke. david didn't bowl... he never does. i've never seen the kid bowl. crazy boy. i think he and luke had fun. i know april and i did. we went to berryhill after and played a game. brandon joined us. it was fun. we played the game that april bought herself for her birthday. totally fun game! after brandon and david left for spring sing, luke spent some time with his club people, and april and i saw hoodwinked at the rialto. it was cute. it was really cold in the theatre though. i could feel the hair growing on my legs! so- then we kidnapped luke, and went to scary movie 4. it was funny. full price, but funny. david took this picture- i thought it was cool.
so- no heber today, but we're gonna try to go on thursday. "the pretties" are going tomorrow, and how i wish i could be there! but, i have to finish a project, take an online test, and do all sorts of other exciting things.
is it a bad idea to wear black on easter?
Friday, April 14, 2006
so, it'll be a pretty good weekend. sunday, i have to meet with my group for "sex ed" for our presentation at 8AM on monday- yucky.
. i got the venus done last night. turned it in today. josh was very sweet, and came to sit with me while i worked on it, so i wouldn't be by myself. we had fun- he did his lesson plans, and when i got done- i went crazy with the camera! it was cool
this was one of my favorites- i didn't know that the light would bounce like that off of the chess pieces, but i'm glad it did. looks like i erased it or something.
thought this one was kinda cool- the focus kinda bothers me, but i only had digital... (reasons i love manual film)... kinda looked like he crashed down on the game... chaos is always good.
i think this is my favorite of him- it's a natural smile, not forced. it's perfect. we talked about his lack of smiling in pictures, i think there are 2 smiling of the probably 35 i took of him. this is a good one.
this is a good one too- kinda somber- i dig it.
then, i took a picture of myself- no good reason, but i got a new facebook picture out of it. i find it annoying that the venus is sticking out the back of my head- i hate her. i just want to knock her over! smash her into itty bitty pieces! AHHHHH!!!!
so, last night was fun, and josh has agreed to be "my subject" again, and the next time, i'm taking a real camera and film. i love the digital for the purpose of quick pictures, but it's "no bueno" when it comes to photography.

i didn't go to church this am because i wasn't/still am not feeling so well. i have this kinda "i'm getting sick again" crap in my throat and chest. and i have an akward pain on my ribs near my armpit. and i woke up feeling like i was going to hurl. so i did. took a good long shower- and might actually go out of the room today... once april wakes up.
i'm already trying to figure out what i need to take next semester so i won't be here for 6 years... 2011, harding? ney ney, my friend. ney ney. so- i have to start taking classes for the ELL thing- "double major" which is only 12 hours- no big d. but... i also have to have 2d design... sculpture... painting1 & 2, biology, color theory, art history... and all sorts of other FUN classes. so i'll be trying to put that together here in the next couple of weeks. and meetings with mrs. austin will be needed.
gonna dry my hair now.

went to gene and beckie's this afternoon and helped put away christmas. got diner at doc's- which was also astonishing- and a little cash- for packing away the holiday. beckie and i laughed at the fact that she just wanted it put away before valentine's day. hahaha!
joey, april, josh, and his lady friend have gone to little rock for the evening. erin's more than likely with kyle. i should be doing a drawing that's due on monday. but- no. don't feel like it.
i walked around campus tonight thinking- and walking in some puddles. i walked across a piece of wood, and the wet print from my rainboot was left there. it was cool. like the weather. rain/snow thing = row. it was fun to see the snow today. it thought about sticking- but not hard enough. maybe tomorrow.
so- now that i've had my fill of dramatic entertainment for the evening- i think i'm going to sit in my bed with my heat pad on my back, and watch some tv. maybe the news. i should atleast find out what's going on in the world outside harding.

then- i called security and my favorite security worker (andy mcdonald) came and picked me up from work to drive me to the dorm.... we got to the dorm door, and i realized andy has to ride around talking to himself all night... so, he asked if i wanted to tag-along... well... of course i did. so, we drove around in circles all over campus chattin it up. it was good fun.
there had been something bugging me earlier in the week- but, it's amazing how you feel something bothering you, and you realize you're not the only one it bothered. i feel a lot better. thanks.

Friday, January 13, 2006
so glad to be back at school. this is a picture taken at church of paige, april, and myself. while i'm not amazingly thrilled about my gruling schedule- i am very happy to be back. my friends have started the black market on harding campus- so that i can eat on monday, wednesday, friday- seeing as i go from 8 in the morning til 5 in the afternoon with out a break. so- when i see my friends some of them slip my something to eat that the stole from the caf- or got in the student center. today wasn't as bad a as usual though- i got out of my 10-12 early, around 11:30, and was able to grab a quick burger from the caf. it was... cold. bleh. oh well. at least i got to eat. so- i've been doing homework, and studying already. second semester is really going to kick my butt. i'm afraid that this is the on ei'm going to strugle through. i've got some really tough classes- and here's someting funny- i have 74 drawings due on manday- assigned today from mr.pitt. these are to be 24 from magazines, and the other 50 from our heads, or watching people- of the skeletal outline. said they shouldn't take us long... ha. i've been working on then for about 30 minutes and i've only gotten one done. AMAZING. so- april's laying in bed doing algebra- erin's laying in bed. i'm sittin here- not being productive, and i like it. it seems like i just go go go all day- and then when i get in my room and just sit down- oh so nice. but, i have so much stuff to be doing. pitt wants us to spend an hour a day drawing + the 2 hours we're in the class. bah! i have to read for american national government- snooze. read for physical science- blah. i got all my art for elem. ed. done already. and april and i are eventually going to go work out. so, other than the 18 hours of classes, countless hours of homework, drawing, reading and otherwise... i have LOADS of free time... just pouring out of my ears. yea. uh huh. ok.
Tuesday, January 10, 2006
the past couple days have been good to me(as my life always is). it was good to get back a little early so i would have time to unpack everything(still not done), and be able to organize my head for the weeks to come. i'm afraid that on wedesday morning i'm going to wake up and get ready for wellness and sprint to the gym in my sweats as i did all last semester. that would be bad. so- thankfully, april and i have our 8 together. she'll keep me from doing goofy things like that. so: here's my week:
health and safety - 8am
chapel - 9
anatomy for art majors - 10- 12
choir - 12
american national govt. - 1
bible - 2
art for elem. ed. - 3- 5 (only monday/wednesday)
chapel - 9
physical science - 10- 11.15
choir - 12
bible - 2
so, i have a long day and a short day- and of course the short day is full of breaks, and the long day i don't get one. atleast art for elem. ed. doesn't meet on fridays! that helps. but still- my schedule is wacky- as always. even in high school i always had a weird schedule. ok- enough complaining!
everything here is going well. i'm glato be here and to see all my friends. wade and i hung out, and it was really good to see him. i saw david and chris- that was fun- they basically shot down TN- so we're not friends anymore... kidding. ummm- saw chris(the other one) and that was interesting to saw the least. not diggin his new girlfriend. bleh. ummm... so- yea. saw a couple of friends from bible yesterday- it was good. oh- one more complaint- buying books is expensive- over 300 dollars. ok- so, i'm back on campus. and it's great to be here. i love it.
