Iam afraid this trip home is going to be stressful. I am a little aggrivated. When I planned this trip, Matthew wasnt coming with, then he decides to come home too. Ok, thats fine, but now I have to fit in a bunch of stuff he anted to do. Well, I dint alot for those things, sorry, but I didnt know he was coming with. All I said was that I wanted to be with my family for the fourth of July ( and yes, I know this has been resolved, but I need to vent it out, cuz when I mention it to Matt, he thinks I am trying to pick a fight) And then he wants to go to MO to see his grandma and grandpa. Ok, fine. I ake him do my family stuff I will go with him to his family stuff. Cept now he wants me to spend three day in Des Moines/Ames/Ankeny. Sorry, no. If I spend two days in MO and three days in DM/A/A, that means I am home for 6 days. If I knew he was coming with me, and wanted to go to all of these places, I would have stayed longer. Dont get mad at me when I say no. This is MY trip home. The last I will have till we move. I know it is his last one too, but isnt that all the more reasons to do our own thing and know that we got to do it? I dont need my vacation to be stressful.

And just to explain this, the inside circle are moose prints the outside circle are handprints to represent the harmony between wildlife nd ciilization. The orange surrounded by the blue is the midnight sun and the whole thing makes a snowflake. I like it. A lot of people dont, but they are mostly all whiners anyway. It isnt FOR the people who LIVE in Anchorage. The whole thing is to attract people from the Outside to come and visit Anchorage, spend their money and leave. Gotta love tourism.
this is the Child's small tee shirt I snatched. Try and give fre stuff only to kids... I wont have it!
And a close up of the logo. Trademarked. Logo.

1) "I might need it some day"- I believe this is the fundamental thinking in the progression of my development. And anyone who knows dad knows this to be true. Case in point, I have a suitcase that, the last time I was home, I had to literally sew back together, so I could get it back home. Did I throw this suitcase away? Nope, I might need it some day. And I did. (This will become clear in #2.
2) "Dont throw away ANYTHING without asking me first"- I have a bunch of cardboard boxes in the basement, because I might need them someday. When I need a card board box, I want to be able to go downstairs and peruse my selection and be able to choose the right size. Well, a couple weeks ago, Matthew gave away my large cardboard boxes cause Doug was PCSing to Utah. Not SOME, but ALL. I was peeved! He did not consult me before getting rid of my boxes...I cleaned out my closet and wanted to pack up my winter coats for the summer and had nothing to put them in. NOTHING? No not nothing, because in the genius of the fundamental "I might need it someday" school of thinking, I still had a perectly good storage suitcase sitting downstairs. I certainly cant use it as luggage anymore, but storage, yes.
3) "No specific use, but it will come" - it is a sub-category to #1, in that you collect objects, that you cant throw away because you are sure there is a practical use for them, but you dont know what that is, but when it comes up you will be prepared. Mom found and entire calf stall in the barn full (FULL) of empty laundry detergent containers. For no reason, just because. I happened to have 9, count them 9, empty detergent containers in my basement. Out of laziness, or out of need, I dont know. But if I ever NEED them I will be prepared.
4)"Untensil replacement"- I think this has more to do with memory than with ACTUAL UNTENSIL REPLACEMENT. Except that, apparently, I put untensils BACK into the drawer after I use them. I think he MAY do this on purpose, but I dont, so this leads me into a conflict of genetic questions. Has it been engrained into my genetic code? It is possible.
5) "thought Processes" (or lack there of)- LOL> I know how he thinks. How scary is that.? "Dont stop talking on account of me" yelled from the bathroom means "Its gonna be awhile" and sure enough a split second later he yells that too (Oh this was a part of the phone call I had with mom on Friday, I should have mentioned that).
So as new episodes arise I will relate them in this new thread. I hope you enjoy my spiral into the world of Lysle Whitmer. I know I will, and probably Amanda will too.

So where is all this self loathing/discovery leading me? I dont know exactly. But I know that I am on my way there.
