yobba dobba doo

this blog is dying because for various reasons i cant come up with anything intelligent to write. so im just going to ramble about new things in my life and then decide ive said enough and quit.

my sweet little (big) dog died the other day. for some reason she urgently needed to go outside so she wrecked her crate, squeezed out the cat door and proceeded to make an attempt to cross the road but didn't make it. i miss her soo much and now i am feeling very dogless so enough of this subject.

most likely i will be gone the month of june, again for various reasons. i have decided to visit my grandparents, and my very understanding parents have allowed me to do so as long as i finish my school work. im going to be away from home for a whole month and thats the longest ive been gone before, but i'll be going to maranatha most likely, so thats cool.

my dad and i have a much better relationship now, its actually so much better that i cant think of the right words to describe it. i mean we still have differences and all that, but its better. God is good.

i am trying to spend the least amount of time with two certain friends of mine and its easier to do than i thought it would be. i am pretty sure now that they have been a big influence on me in all the wrong ways; for a while i was pretending that it wasn't like that and that i was influencing then more, but i don't think so. im not giving up on them, just praying for them more and spending less time with them.

its close to 6:30 now and we will be leaving soon for prayer meeting, so this is all for now.

7864

i made lasagna for dinner and while its cooking i'm racking my brain for something to write. i came home today and the younger kids where watching bob the builder x-treme adventures. x-treme like, pilchard getting stuck in a tree thats falling down and is two inches off the ground. its funny, pilchard is also a kind of fish and they named the cat after fish.

if figured nobody would mind if i skipped a few modules in biology. i wanted to skip all the way to the end, do the dissecting and be done. but since thats skipping six or so modules, it didnt go over to well with the higher authorities. and algerbra, i wanted to sorta skip that to. my dad keeps telling me that algerbra is so easy and that exactly my point. i need something a little more challenging to keep me from falling asleep, so i got an algerbra and trig book from the library. actually i didnt get the trig book yet because my dad says it will be to challenging.

nate called the other day and asked what grade i was in. that is a very odd question coming from him so i was pretty couriouse as to why he would ask that. i just looked up "couriouse" to see how to spell it because i know i spelled it really wrong. instead of getting the correct way to spell it, i get some lousy definition from an online dictionary, this is what they wrote: there is no definition, but it's a word used by people who turn off spell checkers. ( i know it spelled curious, but i'm leaving it.) anyways, at nate's work they are having a take your kids to work day and he wants to bring me and for some reason they want ninth graders. i am not in ninth grade and i am definately not nate's kid, but i guess he wants me to pretend. (pretend i'm in ninth grade, not pretend i'm his kid) i asked him what i would do all day and he says i would play video games or something. not my idea of an interesting and productive day, especially since i get bored very easily, but i said ok. he just had to ask if i was alowed. november fith i guess, i go to work with him if i want. this could be interesting.

i just went to check on the food and the oven was turned off, thanks to timmy. thats 50 minutes of cooking and i guess we wont be eating until eightish. and for some reason they put grapes in the saled. somebody needs to get me a mars bar with peanuts, and some rootbeer before i go crazy.

i think my mom somhow makes modest skirts somehow appear at the store. when i go by myself the only stuff i find is tight, emoish and skanky (if i may use that word). but if i go with my mom i find lots. like today i got five. i like the definition of emo i just found, a style of rock music influenced by punk rock and featuring introspective and emotionally fraught lyrics. i like the emotionally fraught lyrics part the best, if anybodys ever listened to rock music, its is definatly that.

anybody ever heard of the little monsters books? there was one at valu village that i wanted to get but didnt. they are pretty funny books, with creatures in them that are a cross between a dino and a dragon. their names are really good, like Kerploppus, Professor Wormbog, Zipperump-a-Zoos, Useless Blob and Sneedles.

i only have two songs left on this mp3 player ( i am using my own battery) and once its done the creative juices stop flowing. i know i'm being wierd, but i'm a little tired. so i am going to go eat lasagna now.

oh, i decided that after puppy dies i am going to get a bull dog and name it spud after the potatoey scarecrow thingy off of bob the builder. i'm not wishing puppy will die, just planning ahead. and nobody tell me words are missspelled because odds are i already know and i dont want to fix them. i did that on purpose.

Homemade Slime Recipe


Safety:
Not to be fed to your pet or baby brother. Not good for leaving in carpets or on furniture overnight. To keep almost indefinitely, leave in ziploc bag in refrigerator when not sliming! Not a bad idea to wash hands before (so it doesn't grow mold) and after (so mom will let you eat dinner) playing with it. Slime isn't exactly toxic, but its not food.


How to do the experiment:
Borax
White Glue
Water
Food Coloring (optional)
Ziploc bag

1. Borax is available in the laundry section of your local grocery store. Take a cup of water and add to it 1 Tbs. of borax (approx 4% solution). Stir until completely dissolved.

2. Make a 50% water 50% white glue solution. Take 1/4 cup of each and mix thoroughly.

3. In a ziploc bag, add equal parts of the borax solution to equal parts of the glue solution. 1/2 cup of each will make a cup of slime.

4. Add a couple drops of food coloring.

5. Seal bag and knead the mixture.

6. Dig in and have fun. Remember to wash your hands after playing.

7. Keep your slime in the sealed bag in the refrigerator when not playing with it to keep it longer. Unfortunately it may eventually dry out or grow mold. Just throw it out and start again!

Explanation:
The borax is acting as the crosslinking agent or "connector" for the glue (polyvinyl acetate) molecules. Once the glue molecules join together to form even larger molecules called polymers, you get a thickened gel very similar to slime. If you've tried this recipe (formula) before using blue starch (instead of the borax) with mixed results, you won't be disappointed with this one. Works everytime! If you have access to a chemical supply house, try a 4% solution of polyvinyl alcohol instead of the glue for a less rubbery polymer and one that is transparent showing off the color better.

And tonight is the first youth group/bible club; I am making grasshopper bars. Except without green Crème de menthe and white Crème de cacao.

my brother sam with a hat nate got.

and my newly acquired blobs of cells that i got. my mom and i went to a rabbit and cavie show last saturday and i bought the pigs. the day before that i bought the rabbit from emily crocker. the guinea pigs names are boo and yaz. i got a lot of suggestions for their names, like mac (as in the big mac), my mom had some really odd ones to, teddy bear and muffin. boo was ok, but not boo hoo because thats too confusing and yaz because i had to use the name before my brother did since i finished the book it came from first. and the rabbit is toby because he just looks like one. they sleep in my room, and believe me, it doesnt smell to pleasent at times.

i think this blog is getting old because i seriously cant think of anything to write. the pig is gone, he returns friday though, but in the form of cut up meat. i was working on rabbit cages, so while i was cutting the wire the cutters slipped and i cut my finger. i have been canning tomatoes, and that really tiring. in fact i am trying to think of something to write so that i can avoid the three pots of tomatoes on the stove. its just when i can tomatoes i am reminded of all the blisters and cuts on my hands and its a little uncomfortable. my grandparents are coming this monday and they get my room. i get to sleep in the barn and that will be fun. that wasn't sarcasm, i really like sleeping out there. its comfortable and quiet and its the only time i can sleep with puppy.

i think later i will post some pictures of my canning efforts.

Elizabeth's birthday

um

i have to quickly think of something to write before my dad wakes up and kicks me off the computer.

apparently my mom bumped somebody when we we shopping friday and broke some plastic screws on the persons bumper. so today after church she had to go to the police station. there was hardly any damage done so nothing happened, no fines or anything.

i also went to the clinic friday to find out whats wrong with me. the doctor i saw says that i most likely have hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) so i have to get a blood test tomorrow morning. that means i cant eat anything after church tonight so i am going to have one crazy night. normally when i haven't eaten (which makes the sugar go down low) i have the creepiest dreams and i'll wake up being very confused and sweaty and not knowing where i am. and if it turns out to be hypoglycemia, then i will have to get blood tests done every once in a while to make sure it doesn't turn into diabetes.

gwandle had two kittens yesterday morning. i spent about an hour looking in the white shed for them and i couldn't find them. so i figured thy would be anywhere, and started looking in random places and they were under the tarp the covers the lawn mowers. so i moved them into the barn but gwandle didn't like that and moved them back to the lawnmowers, only one kitten got lost in the moving and we only have one kitten now.

i wanted to rest a bit before church tonight so this is it. i don't feel like typing any more anyways, so everything else will have to wait.

gorgle

the only place we have internet now is at my dads computer, so posts will be few and far between.

our conference for revival last week was really good. i was convicted of things and i am praying that i will really forsake them and it wasn't all emotion. this coming week we will be going to maranatha, and i am looking forward to more preaching and fellowship with friends there. i would write more about our conference but i cant get all my thoughts from my mind into words.

complete change of subject, but hare are the few things that are new around here. the cats have stooped low enough to eat dog food since we haven't been buying cat food. and the black kitten got some of ben's mice. i got another rabbit who is very pampered. but he is good with the lady rabbits so i have decided to keep him even though he can get quite crabby and annoying. my mom ran over my dog's new leash with the lawnmower and of course broke it. there was a neighboring dog visiting puppy yesterday, but he was fixed. just puppy was up till' 5 in the morning barking and howling. we went to chris's ball hockey game last night and then biked home in the dark. i was the only one wearing light clothes so it was a little bit nerve racking when i couldn't see the road (it has been freshly paved) and i couldn't see the boys who were a few feet in front of me. but we got home fine.

i have other things to do, so this is all.

why

we flea fogged our house today. i wouldn't recommend doing that unless you are prepared to clean your whole house, including a large stack of ironing that you just ironed. i just hope that the fleas are gone with all the trouble we went through to get rid of them. and either puppy is allergic to flea bites or there is some other thing bothering her, but all underneath her her (the stomach and legs) is covered in scabs and bloody spots. sorry if i grossed you out. yeah, and we almost killed the other kitten a few days ago. she just suffered a cut on her face but she learned her lesson and hasn't been under the van recently.

i am watching this mosquito slowly die after it blindly ran into the lamp. i suppose i should put it out of its misery but there's something about watching it's legs move around as it tries to get back up, but its to fried.

i got a new bike helmet today and i like it a lot better than my old one. it fits better too. its black with blue flames and chelsea likes it, not that that matters.

precious had six babies. this is funny/sad but she chewed off one of her babies ears. the peanut died so i have five babies but now precious wont feed then properly so i had to put three in with chelsea's bunnie. chelsea's babies are younger than mine but twice as big because they are getting fed better. i think after this i will give precious away because she is a bad mama. the first time i heard that her name was precious i immediately thought of lord of the rings so when ever i think "precious" i think of smeagol and his sinister way of saying precious.

the twins, as i call spaz and binky, are crazy. even if they are not good moms i dont think i will ever get rid of them until they die. binkie is expecting, and i don't know exactly how to put this since its an animal, bit spaz doesn't like boys so i doubt she will ever have kits. spaz and binkie get along so well and are so stupid (sorry, stupid is a mean word) and so funny, i'm glad i bought them. the sleep under and wrapped up in a tarp and when i try to shake them out in the morning they give me this look. its hard to explain, sorta like a combination of how dare you/wheres my food/what took you so long. i know rabbits cant think like that, but still. . .

i just sliced a flea in half with my fingernail. drownings to good for them, they have to be dismembered. sorry if i grossed you out again.

my cat is going to have kittens. i am half excited and half wondering what we are going to do with more cats. people don't want cats, that's why they drop them off on our road and that why there are so many feral toms around here. why don't those toms go pick daisy's or something?

i got these two boy rabbits; i almost laughed when i heard their names. phaty paty and rabby.

my mom just took a video of my explaining smeagol to her and i didn't know it. i showed her a picture of him before and after his discovery of the ring. the one after the discovery that i showed her makes him look cute (i'm laughing here), and she says he looks horrible. i'm sure if everybody had a diet of raw fish they wouldnt look to pretty either.

it was just hinted to me that perhaps i was ready to go to bed.

just to give you a headache






more later

dinky donky

one of the little black kittens was killed today. it was sleeping under the hood of the van and was killed when we started it up. it was pretty sad with my mom and elizabeth crying, i didn't cry though, i just almost threw up when i saw the little bit of blood, probably cause' i was eating something. i would cry if it was my dog though.

puppy doesn't have a lot of fleas, but the ones she does have are really nasty. the bite and the bits turn to scabs and infected boil like things and its gross. she loves to have her belly scratched and would lie there all day if she could. as soon as i get some money i am going to buy her that flea stuff that i cant remember the name of.

i am going to watch a movie now.

rubberband

i'm really bored. max died today so i have one less rabbit. i guess he got too hot or something, but i have plenty more to replace him.

in long sault there is this one house that used to have three huge maple trees that where like 100 years old or something. i loved those trees but today they got cut down. boo hoo. the only reason i can see for them to be cut down is that the owners of the house maybe thought that they could fall on the house in a big storm.

i mentioned to sarah's nannie that we had a pot bellied pig that we where going to eat. i love the reaction i get when i tell that to someone who is a "animal lover". she asked me if i kept the pig in the house, can you imagine what our house would smell like if i kept the pig in the house?

i got paid 200 to watch those dogs for ten days. the pekingese one bit three people and was generally annoying. i'm not one for hurting animals for the fun of it but every time i took coco for a walk i though how light he was and how easy it would be to swing him around on his leash. that sounds so mean.

we are going swimming today and i cant wait.

taking a break

this will be the last post for awhile.

i got two jobs this summer, one is watching two small dogs june 26- july 4 and the other is babysitting three kids, ages 8 months, 9 and 4 years old, for the summer and hopefully this winter. one nice thing is the parents don't mind me taking the kids to church with me if i have to watch them on a sunday.

i changed my email address to pickles16@rocketmail.com since everybody here calls me pickles as much as they call me sarah. and it was time for a new one because the old one was getting old.

i bought a pair of used roller blades and i found a dirty baled up pair of socks inside them. i left them at the store.

so unless something really interesting happens i wont be posting for some time.

ho hum

i am going to take a break from blogging. its pretty much summer and i have things outside to do and i don't feel like writing right now. i need to build a new rabbit cage and clean out and fix a pig pen. and my dog broke her leash again and i need to clean my room, well not really clean but rearrange it to fit in two more rabbits. it sounds strange to talk about putting rabbits in my room since i have always had them outside. last month i had no rabbits and now i have 10 and will be having three more litters soon. yum yum.

who needs titles?

so for the past two days i have (and my family and neighbors) built a new pen for the pig and the ducks. the pig got loose after we had "finished" the pen the first time, so elijah temporarily put rocks against the wire but he got loose again anyways. and its been raining a lot but thankfully today was dry and windy. but since there was a lot of rain, the pigs pellets turned to mush before he got his lazy self up to eat and hammy hates wet mushy food. but yesterday i decided we were not going to waste two feedings so i told the pig (yes i actually talked to it out lowed) that he had to eat at least half of the mush before i would give him any dry pellets. wow, talk about mad pig! he hated me for the rest of the day and told me so by grunting and sticking his backside in my face while i made his house. but he ate those mushy pellets and i felt like i had finally won something over that pig.

i made hammy's house out of skids (or pallets) and some tin. those skids are really heavy; if you want to know how heavy than go out by home depot and in the back there are dumpsters. by the red one find the biggest skid you can, take it home and then drag it through muddy grass and wet hay while your little sister or brother pretends to be a pig (and is trying to attack you) and then nail it to something. oh, and let it fall on your foot a couple times to.

my ducks are so cute. they aren't named of course since i am not sure if i am going to eat them or their eggs. i like to sit and watch the water roll of their backs as they swim around.

i have a phobia of cars, or of driving or of both. when i was around eight my mom was involved a a car crash and i was with her. all i can actually remember was that it was raining and i was looking out the window thinking how funny it was that one of hanafords lights had gone out in the sign so it really looked like anafords. as i was about to point this out to my mom she started shouting "no" a whole lot and really fast as we hit the back of the car in front of us. i got a big bruise from the seat belt buckle but from then on i have dreaded going in any vehicle, especially the front seat. i never sat up front unless i had too and when i did sit up front i would clench my teeth and wish who ever was driving would slow down. but it slowly got better and i didn't have to force myself to sit up front and i could actually look around at what we were driving by without thinking that all the cars around us were destined to hit us. but lately that fear has come back and its worse now then it was then. i dread going any where, i have to listen to music or read a book or else i will be a nervous wreck. it sounds kinda silly. my mom says that i need to pray about it and i am going to do that.

chelsie's birthday is this saturday. a small part of me is slightly excited but the rest is a bit anxious to see how many fights and arguments happen. i am not going to write about everything and this probably happens to a lot of people and their neighbors. but imagine yourself as a piece of really nice candy and there are two people who want that candy all to themselves. not because they want the candy they just want something to say "ha ha" about to the other person. i am that candy and the people are sarah and chelsie, and i am really fed up with all the childish bickering that goes on between these two girls and their parents. i would rather go out on the streets with my dad and my brothers for this jehovahs wittness conference they have every year.

today is joseph's birthday, so happy birthday joseph :) doesn't it feel so much different now that your 16? actually it doesn't so i wast just kidding.

my alarm clock will be going off in 6 or 7 hours. and i'll wake up 10 minutes before it goes off and watch the clock as the minutes count down (or up?) and wish i could reach up and shut the clock of and go back to bed. but sadly, i cant reach the clock. i could probably throw something at it but that would just knock it over and not turn it off. i love coffee with a little sugar and oatmeal raisin cookies that every body ate. i think this post is long enough so good night.
