I should just expect it....

The other night, me and my friend Linnea decided to go see Source Code. It was so good by the way....I am sure I am way behind because it is at the dollar theater now, but I loved it.

Anyway, we walk in and I see the cutest guy. I turn to Linnea and the conversation goes like this:

Me: "Hey! He is way cute."

Linnea: Looking over to see a tall skinny white guy and a brown Polynesian man, "Which one? Oh duh, I should just look for the brown ones with you."

Me: "I'm sorry, I just can't help myself."

Brown man walks by, Linnea gives me the nod and the wink.

Linnea: "I bet he will be in our movie..."

We sit down behind this girl, get comfy.
In walks brown man.....Linnea gives me the nod and wink.

Brown man walks into the aisle in front of us and plops down right next to his cute date.

Both of us look at each other and bust up laughing.

Of course, of course. I should just expect that kind of situation to happen.

It was hilarious.

Whew.

Tonight I am just so tuckered out! It is a good tuckered.

I worked the last couple of nights and it sure was a few busy ones.
It feels so good to be busy. It feels so good to do SOMETHING!

I love my people where I work. It is the best facility in the world and I enjoy it so much.

My favoritiest lady has been sooooo funny lately. I asked her if I could write about her and she said yes...she loves it. Loves the attention!

She gave me a new nick name...Kitchy Witchy. I have absolutely no idea why, but she loves to call me that. She still can't get over that I am not Japanese either...won't let it go. I love to come up behind her and give her a little snort and scare her so bad! Then tell her I am the half man half ET that she thinks hides under bed and that she feeds cookies. She yells and laughs so hard and I tell her how much I love her. She just LOVES to be teased...loves it.

Well, I give you a little video I found on my facility's FB. I. was. dying. Now you can officially see the hilarity of her...

Enjoy!
 





Oh Imo, you're the best thing that ever happened to me.

Lately....

I feel like punching life in the face. 
Or giving it a big wet willy. 
I just know that one of these times I am gonna catch a break.
Don't know when, don't know how....but I am holding my breath for it.

And today I really feel like this:

Except probably a little bit more grumpy. Yep, yep I do.

Luckily there is this place:

where I can forget about how unbelievably crappy sometimes life can be and feel at peace, even for just a few hours. (Learn about this place HERE)

And then I can remember him:


And then I can at least breathe for a little bit longer.

My mantra: I can do hard things.

Oh, my little homey.

This is my my little homey Jaden that I LOVE so, so much!


On my mission I met one of my most favorite families ever who had the funniest and cutest kids! Jaden, the youngest (4 then, now 5) was the biggest crack up in the world. He was just a little ladies man who taught us how to over-use the word "homey".

Every time we came over his favorite thing to do was run up with his little nike's, hat to the side, and long bball shorts and say (with his wanna-be peace sign...but it was really three fingers instead of two like this...)

and say, "Peace out homies!"...over and over again. So funny...well, we thought it was. I think his parents got super sick of it and we kind of egged it on hahah oops!

We then became the "homies" instead of the Sisters and we loved it.

Then one day when we left he said in all seriousness, "I love you homies. I love you Sissies." I. about. died. it was so cute!

My companion and I said that to each other probably 8,000 times a day...and we continue to call each other homies from now on. It is great times.

Luckily I have this hilarious video to show you how cute it is! Enjoy!

What made me think of this homey was these little homies on America's Got Talent that my mom showed me! How cute are they??



Happy Wednesday!

It's a disease...or a growth.



Seriously, that is how I feel about this show.

A few years back some of my greatest of friends said, "Hey Cheltz, just watch one episode of this show."

And after that point it was this annoying growth that I had.

It was like I honestly thought to myself, "Wow, this show is ridiculous", and then I just kept watching...and watching. And now, I have to watch...and it still drives me nuts.

She:
 drives me absolutely bonkers. She is beautiful and smart...but I can't handle listening to her. Yet, there I watch, week after week because I must know what happens.

And if she mentions him:

one more time, my hand may just go through the screen. Sweetie, you only knew him 3 weeks.

Our Utah boy has caused quite the stir. Yes he was such a jerk...but I honestly couldn't help but chuckle because the show is so ridiculous that it is funny that he dooped everyone. What I am not laughing about is when she has to watch back what he said about her...that makes me sad. If you don't watch or aren't watching this season let me show you what he is like:



Me and the Sis were laughing so hard...what an idiot. Especially how he is at the end towards the guys....what dummy...yet so hilarious.

And I was also freaking out this week because it took place in Phuket, Thailand RIGHT where were last summer! Even the sea kayaking trip they went on I went on...so that was pretty cool.

Ok, enough about this show.

I hate it.

But you can bet I will still watch it next week.

Ugh.

If things go as planned....

I hope to be going here next summer for another good dose of humanitarian work:



 Some of my very favorites from my mission invited me to go with them.
Uhhhmmmm...you seriously do not even need to finish your sentence 
before I have my ticket bought and I am in my seat. 

I will think of you every day my Filipino darling Cami Fairbanks. 

I hope it all works out...because in my mind...I'm already there.
Ha!




I seriously want to go everywhere and work in every orphanage that ever was.
Hence...why I changed my major.
See you soon Manila :)

Old folks make me sa-happy.


This weekend I started working back at my most favoritest old folks home EVER. The two ladies above are still there along with many other of my great friends. I am starting back but still taking it easy because I am working up my strength...but boy it makes me happy to be back.

Working with the elderly seriously brings me so much joy I can't even begin to tell you. Their wrinkley sweet faces, good stories, and sometimes outlandish comments make me so happy.

I have been working on memory support side which definitely is not always easy but somehow I just love it. These are people with Alzheimers, Dementia, Schizophrenia and other mind altering problems which makes for SUPER interesting nights.

Top 10 favorite moments of the past two days:

1. Looking over to see three residents all reading the paper upside down.
2. Getting smacked in the face when trying to change someone's clothes.
3. Going to take one person's teeth out and finding another resident's teeth in the cup instead.
4. Finding one resident with 3 shirts on, one backwards, and pants on with no undies.
5. Having 4 of them meet to conspire to break out.
6. One resident offering me 100,000 dollars to give the code to get out...show me the money honey.
7. Getting told, "love you honey" with a cute kiss on the cheek more times than I can count.
8. Finding really creative ways to get pills down really agitated residents with chocolate and then getting them spit in your face.
9. Finding one resident pulling all of the flowers out of pots and planting them outside.
10. Finding one resident hiding behind the chair "playing house".

Oh it sure is eventful. I am so glad that I can take care of these sweet people in their last days and I always hope they get the very best of care. They sure deserve it...I fall in love with them so quickly.

On my mission I also met a lot of elderly gems...Grandma Lapena is on the left.


She is the best woman I know and gave me more laughs than I can handle. She is also dating a man LITERALLY half her age which makes her even funnier. This is them...


Seriously I cannot handle it, it makes me laugh too much. Like for reals she is 82 and he is 41...what the judd?? She is apparently super hip.

Here is more proof of her hip-ness. For your viewing pleasure....I give you Grandma Lapena (sorry it is sideways...it's worth it I swear.)

Happy be-lated Sunday.
Hug an old person for me this week.
It will make you and them so happy!

2 AM, where ya been?



Oh well, it is just 2 in the morning and I can't sleep as usual.

What hasn't been usual is I haven't blogged in a good long while. It feels so not normal for me...but good. It means I have been getting out and having a little more of a life. More than life on the couch.

So here is how life is lately and how I feel about it...

1. I still feel really lost. I get asked a lot what I am up to and what is next. I have an answer I have been giving, but to be honest I have no idea. I wish I knew. Oh well...it will come.

2. I feel a bazillion times better and I feel so grateful about it. I honestly feel better than I have ever felt in my entire life as far as my energy goes....this surgery was a miracle.

3. I miss Oprah.

4. Why do I still feel so awkward in 90% of my social interactions?? I have been sometimes TOO social my whole life...and now I feel instantly weird. I guess I still feel like I just got off the mission and I have been living in a hole for six months. Both good reasons to feel weird I guess. 

5. If you read my blog and read THIS post and were curious, nah, my bladder is still a complete joke. Kill me please.

6. I am starting work back tomorrow and my most FAVORITE retirement home with old folks and I couldn't be happier about it.

7. I miss my mission so much.

8. I love my friends and it was so good to see so many this week. As weird as I feel being social it feels SO good to be out.

9. I really love not watching TV.

10.  This girl looked so beautiful this week at her wedding...


And you should have seen how amazing all of her details were at her reception....I will post pics later.

Congrats Jacki and Kade!

And this one is next...


So crazy! What a gorgeous couple.


Well, that's all for tonight folks. More to come later!
