childhood innocence

Posted in Uncategorized on January 23, 2010 by Miriem

there are a few things that we could do when we were 4 that just really aren’t allowed anymore. That or people would think you were crazy

-When you got scared at age 4 you could run to your parents and cry as long as  you wanted even though it might be the dumbest thing ever that scared you.

-You could also sleep with your parents if you were sad and it wasn’t creepy.

-You could scribble whatever you wanted on a piece of paper and people raved about it and actually said that it looked like a puppy or an airplane.

-You could sit on random boys laps and flirt shamelessly without being some weird girl, just an adorable little girl.

-You believed in Santa and the Easter Bunny

-Prayers required a few rehersed sentances and no thought

-You were light enough to jump into piles of leaves and not hit your butt on the ground

-You could play on anything and not get into too much trouble

-Playing mermaids and war was a part of everyday life

-You could eat as many chocolate chip cookies as you wanted and wouldn’t feel sick

-You can say that someone is fat or ugly right to their face and it is just pawned off on the fact that you didn’t know what you were saying

-You didn’t like boys and didn’t care how many or how few liked you

these are just a few but I thought they were pretty fun. I have very fond memories of my childhood and most of these are parts of them. The best was playing War in our little Japan house. Jill and Val would prepare baskets with blankets and crackers and a baby doll and i would run to the genkan and then run back to the room yelling, “The war is coming, the war is coming!” Someones baby would always die and Jill usually got shot so we had to leave her behind.

what did Number The Stars do to us!


my resolutions to life

Posted in Uncategorized on January 7, 2010 by Miriem

So I have always made new years resolutinos and goals but till this year never taken it seriously cause I haven’t found a need. This year is a whole new mentality. I will get everything on my list done despite the fact that it might be hard. I have done well thus far and havn’t slipped on any of them yet so I’m excited!!! Here we go,

~Fix my handwritting (i write like a 9 year old boy and really need to work out nicer penmanship)

~Read Tarzan:Jewels of Opar, Ender’s Game, Count of Monte Cristo, and Harry Potter 7 (I’m not a big reader so i set my sights pretty low with a few that I have been wanting to read or finish reading for a while)

~Get a New Years kiss (Next year will be me and Val’s year!!)

~Pass Accounting (It is the one subject that I honestly just don’t get and can’t understand I have taken it 3 times!!!!)

~Go to a Circus (it looks so creepy and fun)

~Start a hat collection (i ws recently repremanded by Elder Holland for a lack of sunday hats so I’m gonna get on that.)

~Get back down to 125 lbs, or at least look like that. This entails lots of things… No candy/chocolate/snacks except one day a week and a work out regiment which will be subject to change

~Hand make a dress and a coat as well as make 2 quilts

~Go to Canada (just one more country off my list)

~Buy my red cowboy boots (always been a dream of mine!)

~Get on Look Book (Almost there!!!)

~Pay off my car completely

~Be in a relationship (this is the one that i will give a little leniancy to but I thought it would be a good goal)

~Sing in public (i have always wanted to just to prove that I could not becuase I have a good voice or would make it a habit)

~Do 12,000 names on family indexing

~go to the temple once a month

~learn to french braid (how have I never learned??? i dont know)

so that is basically my list but i think it should be pretty good and fun to do at the least.
