Good Intentions Turn Into Cookies

Have you ever thought about the definition of "to cleave"?  Go on, say your definition out loud.  Tell your neighbor.  Now go look it up on

The first definition probably says, "to adhere closely; stick; cling" or "to remain faithful to"
The second definition might say, "to split or divide by or as if by a cutting blow, especially along a natural line of division, as the grain of wood" or "to cut off; sever" 

So, be careful of cleaving, because either your gonna stick to it or sever it off completely.  That's what I learned in Sunday School today :)

On another note, I always buy carrots in an effort to be healthy.  But then, I never eat the carrots.  Luckily I have a recipe for carrot cookies.  When the carrots have just sat around doing nothing for a bit, I decide it's time to turn them into cookies.  Thus, my good intention of being healthy usually turns into cookies.  Go figure.  This world is a strange one.

Still Confused About Dating

Relationships fascinate me.

Why is that we always want what we can't have?  Why is the most attractive guy in our eyes always the one that's unreachable?

And then why is that there can be a heap of guys available, but who just don't mean the same?

I used to fret that I would fall for the first guy that showed interest in me.  Then, in desperateness I decided that I needed to fall for the next guy that showed interest.  And then I realized one day that just showing interest in me wasn't all that attractive.  Not that it's unattractive...or maybe it is...I don't know.

Online dating.  I never thought that I would be someone who would meet my husband online.  Now I'm not sure.  As in no one asks me on dates from knowing me through other means.  Guys online do though.  I wonder what that says about me...

I've never had the problem of too many guys in my life before.  Not that it's a problem right now.  I'm just so used to nothing ever going anywhere.  I'm not really sure what is expected from guys I meet online.

Why does dating and courtship come so naturally for some people, and so unnaturally for others?

Zits and Glasses

I just got my Utah driver's license.  I'm a little sad because I just renewed my California's Driver's License last year.  I like being from California.  Also, when California checks out your eyes, you look at a sign posted a good distance away.  It's still hard to read for near-sighted people like myself, but I could do it.  Utah makes you look in this machine.  The machine is dark.  I couldn't do it.  I really only need to wear glasses at night, but thanks to Utah's machine, I have to wear glasses all the time.  I know, I know, there are a lot of problems worse than this.  I won't be too bitter.  (Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr).

Yesterday, at work, I noticed a red dot on my face in between my eyes.  I thought I had covered that up, but apparently not.  I soothed myself saying, "It's okay, I never see anyone at work anyway and I can cover it up as soon as I get home."  Of course, then I realized that I needed to stop by the bank before I went home.  I pondered what to do.  As I was in the car, wearing my glasses because of (huff puff I'll just not finish that clause), I noticed that the glasses covered the red dot.  (Hmm, coincidence?)  I decided I would walk into the bank with my glasses on.

Okay, so I've now worn my glasses a lot lately.  I've worn them in the car and sitting in the classroom gazing at the chalkboard/white board/ overhead.  I've never walked around with them.  The world is a different place, let me tell you.  I'm pretty sure wearing glasses while you walk around messes with your depth perception.  I know that the world is a lot more clearer with glasses, but I trust the world without my glasses a lot better.
