This morning, I was having a really hard time getting out of bed. I've been so tired, and other than the huge cramp I got in my calf at 4am, I had been sleeping quite well last night. I didn't want to get up quite yet and face the day!
When I finally got up, I noticed a few things that were a little "off".
- The bathroom door wasn't propped open with the brick from Nauvoo (our door doesn't stay open unless you do.)
- A lamp in the living room was still on.
"Shannon, I have a surprise for you on the couch. It's ME! I can't wait to play with you this weekend!"
I ran into the living room, and who did I see?
My sister, Cherilyn!
Oh my goodness!
My voice was very high-pitched.
I was so surprised!
I have the best family ever! This week I've missed them so much. I've wished they all lived closer. The fact that David would let Cherilyn leave their 5 kids (one being sick) for a few days so she could come play with her little sister means so much to me!
I love you, Cherilyn!

I've only told a couple people this, but I secretly (and not so secretly now) want an iPad.
I feel a little silly admitting it since I was so against them when they were first released. I just saw it as a glorified iPod touch. And yes, I still think that's what they are.
But I kind of want one.
I've been wanting a new computer for a few years now. My current laptop is about 7 years old. It takes about 30 minutes to turn on. Once it's on, it takes forever just to pull up a program. If you try to download something, you'll be there at least an hour (or in the case a couple weeks ago, it never came). If I accidentally unplug it, it turns off right away. It also makes sounds equivalent to that of a space shuttle taking off to the moon.
I'd love to go the route of a MacBook, but I feel like I can't justify such an expensive purchase.
What are my current uses of my computer?
-random internet browsing/googling
That's really about it. Do I need a MacBook for that?
Or could I just get an iPad?
What are your thoughts? I could use some help here. I'm easily persuaded.
And let's be honest...I really want to play Angry Birds.
