Do you think people (meaning all people) are inherently good?

So a co-worker of mine today asked, "Hey Holly? Is it your church that are really into helping people? Like eachother? Like you would mow the lawn or make dinner for someone who needed it?"

=] Yep, I'm a proud mormon.

So I turned on the a/c and with the help of my friend DaisyDo we put up curtains to contain the coolness in the living room.
Well Brian walked through the curtain with Parker, and the carseat in the other arm and a part of the curtain fell down. Me, trying to fix it, decided to get onto a chair. Of course its our chairs that are from the antique shoppe and so they are really old. To make a long story short, I stepped down with the wrong foot first, and I toppled onto the ground. My leg instantly started throbbing. Brian, who was making a bottle on the other side of the curtain yelled to see if I was okay. I yelled that I needed ice.
I was feeling okay and even went to the store to get more fans. When I returned my knee started feeling worse. When I went to bed, I couldn't even move it or sleep or anything. So against my will- we went to the ER. (Luckily my insurance I had when I wasn't working- was still active) I have never had pain like that- except for my c-section recovery.
After waiting for a while, and taking excrutaiting (sp?) xrays they said it was a really bad sprain. Rest Ice Compression Elevation oh, and awesome pain meds!
I'm so glad its not broken, but it still hurts a LOT.

Parker Update: He isn't crawling yet but he's loving his veggies and fruits. He has also become quite the roller. He jsut rolls to whatever he wants to get into. So now we really have to watch him. He loves playing with cords. Ugh.

fat belts and stretchy pants

So, Cedar Point, where do I begin? I was so excited and it literally turned out to be one of the most saddest days in my life. Let me explain... Everyone knows that after a baby you put on a little weight, most people take it off after, my body of course is hanging onto it for dear life. So what does this have to do with Cedar Point?

Well, I was stoked to go on my fave rollercoaster EVER- Millenium Force, and after waiting in line for an hour for the front seat (it drops at an 80degree angle) I found out that I was too fat to ride. The seatbelt wouldn't latch. I said it was no biggie, walked out the "chicken escape" and broke down sobbing. That was it. I will never again be as heavy as I was that day. I am more than determined.
So, Brian being the amazing husband that it is, got off the ride with me. Trying to console me (bc of course I just wanted to turn around and drive home) he said we should go on other rides. I was able to ride all the other roller coasters and rides. And I ended up having a lot of fun.... until-

We rode these merry go round type horses. They were supposed to be race horses. You know the competitive/funny side of me took over and I told brian I was "eyeing the winner". Of course that means picking the one with the cutest saddle blanket. So there she was, a grey horse with a dark and light green polka dotted saddle blanket. The horses stop and different heights and of course mine was at the tallest setting. Determined to get me short self on the horse I stretch my leg up as high as it will go, and pull myself onto the horse. As I am doing this I hear "riiiiippp". You guessed it- my pants ripped. Not just a tiny rip. It was about 6-7inches! As if my day hadn't been going bad enough. So while riding I planned my escape off the horse and out the exit. There I stood waiting for Brian to bring me some new pants. I put them over the ripped ones, walked to the bathroom and took off the ripped ones and threw them away.

What a day. After a couple more rides I was so ready to get outta that park and start my new life. Yep. I'm joining the gym tomorrow.
Our B&B (the same one we honeymooned in) was amazing. Here are just a couple pics of our room:

Next time, It'll be perfect. =]
