I'm finally updating again!

I have been pretty busy lately. My church involvement has increased pretty dramatically within the past couple of months. It used to be that I would go to church once or twice a month, but now I find myself going every single week, and not to just one meeting, but to two. This means I am at church on Sunday from 11 a.m. until around 5 PM depending on if they have anything going on afterwards. Not that I don't love church, because I do, but it gets pretty exhausting. I have also been attending the activities throughout the week on a pretty regular basis.

I've already been twice to activities this week, and there is another one on Saturday that I'm going to be attending. It is going to be a sort of huge group date thing since the "branch" consists of mainly young single adults. I'm totally not looking to hook up with anyone, because it would be really pointless. I'm actually not planning on getting married unless I magically become well again. Anyway, I guess it will be fun to get to know new people. But, this activity has the added stress of being at different peoples' houses. (I wonder if I used that apostrophe correctly.) So, I have to call ahead and make sure that their houses are accessible, and if not, I will need to bring ramps for my wheelchair.

I guess sort of the main reason I never go to these things is because I hate stressing out about whether or not I will be able to get into the houses. Most people don't think about that... because I'm a gigantic minority, but it is practically all I think about when these types of things come up. Like the other night when we were invited to go hang out at these guys' apartment. I don't think I will be having very much fun when the apartment is located on the third-floor, and they don't have any elevators. Grrr. I hate that.

Anyhow, even though it is sometimes exhausting for me, I still have a lot of fun at church and at church things.

Last Friday I had lunch with these two ladies from my neighborhood and got sunburned. I did, however, get to watch Spiderman 2 on Monday. (The movie was excellent. I didn't even really like the first one that much, and even though I have this weird aversion to Tobey Maguire, I thought the movie was top-notch.) I wanted, badly, to go and visit the Indian Reservation like I did last year for the Fourth of July weekend, but we never made it over there. Boo. I guess I have to wait until next year to watch the dancing Indians and the righteous fireworks. I didn't see any this year, but I still love America! Even if I didn't try to light illegal fireworks. (Fireworks = very illegal in California, not that that stops a lot of people from smuggling them in from Mexico and lighting them off anyways.)

Monday my mom left her purse at the movie theater, and it was stolen. She is very sad about this. I was a little bit sad, too, because she had my checkbook and there and an ATM card of mine. I had to change my account completely, but luckily it wasn't hard because Wells Fargo rocks! Wells Fargo = awesome! Rock!

Her bank, on the other hand, is crazy-stupid and a pain. Just say no to Union Bank of California! They suck! They have really horrible hours. Who closes their business at 4 p.m. during the weekdays, and only leaves their business open until noon on Saturday? Crazy. Stupid.

I'm thinking of compiling a list of my top 10 favorite full-length CDs of all time. I was thinking about it the other day when returning home from the bank. Maybe I will do this, and then list them, and then if you guys don't have any of my top favorites, I could push them on you. What do you think?

I also had to update my music awards site. That was fun! I mean, it wasn't too bad because now I have everything pretty much automated, so I'm not continually messing with hand coded HTML. Anyhow, that usually takes a huge chunk of my day when I have to post winners and stuff.

Some family friends are coming over tomorrow which should be great.

In other news, Ken Jennings, 25 day Jeopardy Champion is so rocking! I'm always wanting him to win, and, apparently, I fear his defeat because I already had two nightmares where he lost. I would love to someday appear on this show, but I can't really click the button to ring in, so it might just be a total fantasy.

In other news, my Fastlane DVDs finally came in the mail, and now we are having so much fun watching pretty boys in pretty clothes driving pretty cars. I think I'm going to watch that now...
